About Me


Update: 03 Jun 2024: I have resumed swapping through a small Facebook group of crafty friends since few months. Although it is much less than before. I had miscarriage in Feb 2023 and we are trying for another pregnancy. Work + household stuff takes up time and energy. I love happy mail and creative journaling and missed swapping on SwapBot so much as it was always so fun. I’ve started swapping here again. Swaps with farther deadlines are better for me right now. Private swaps are always fun and less overwhelming. So message me if you would like to swap with me.

My name is Prajakta. I am from India. My swap-bot and Instagram profile name is PrettyCraftyTales. I love making crafty things. I’m here to exchange crafty goodies with women of similar taste and hobbies. I also make stickers, planner goodies, beautiful diecuts, scrapbook embellishments , etc. It’s so nice to also receive something handmade or craft supplies from others. Hoping to meet some lovely crafty ladies here! Message me for private swap.

I love watching sci-fi or fantasy movies. My favourite ones are Marvel and DC comics movies. I haven’t watched all of them but many and multiple times! I also love girly movies like Cinderella etc. It is always fun to watch comedy movies and series. My fav series is FRIENDS and currently enjoying Big Bang Theory.

I don’t read fictional books. I love non-fiction - mostly self-development related books. Best book I recently read - ‘Am I there yet’ by Mari Andrew.

I enjoy journaling - creative journaling as well as morning pages. Although I don’t do it daily.

I love plants. I am not experienced in growing plants but I hope to get better at it. Greenery makes me so happy!

I am a born-again Christian believer. But, let’s say it is my faith and belief and not a materialistic religion.

My kinda people: humble, kind, open-minded, honest, chatty, etc.

My likes and dislikes: I love making/sending and receiving paper craft goodies having happy colours. Black is fine as long as it is shiny! These days I love vintage style too. I love shimmery and sparkly stuff, foiled stationery, diecuts, patterned papers, etc. I love florals, hearts, bows, geometric and any cute/pretty designs, girl designs, household theme, etc. I love love love goodies by Maggi Holmes, Amy Tangerine, American crafts, Kikki K, Cocoa Daisy etc. All these are not generally available in India. Kawaii - not a fan of it. I would love to receive something handmade as well as craft supplies which I can use in my projects. Would love pretty postage stamps (used), anything with botanical theme/illustrations, pressed flowers, handmade papers, stickers (washi stickers or other good quality), rubber or silicone stamps, stencils, metal dies, mixed media (supplies or your art), lace, textured papers, dried flowers, etc. I like to do watercolouring but I am not that good at illustration, so would be great to swap any crafty stuff or stickers for pretty original illustrations of florals/girls/nature/houses etc.

Vintage goodies (old/used stuff from thrift shops or Op Shops). Anything from thrift shops would be great!!! We don’t have thrift shops here. I have quite a good variety of fake vintage ephemera which shops sell these days so I am looking for something from thrift shops. But, I won’t mind if you send me vintage looking ephemera. Pretty fabric scraps, laces, buttons, textured stuff, small unique items, trinkets, embossed cards, embossed papers, old letters, envelopes, Deli paper, glassine bags, etc - these will make me super happy!

Bible, Christian faith related goodies for journaling. Love Illustrated faith goodies!

Please don’t send thin poorly printed pattern papers and poorly stamped or printed diecuts. I don’t mind stamped images or prints but they should be crisp, of good quality.

My husband loves green tea and other herbal tea. I don’t mind trying that. ❤️

Postcards: Preferred in envelope.

What I can offer:

I can ofcourse from my usual vintage themed or colourful cute or floral design happy mail which may have stickers, diecuts, stationery, printed elements, stamped goodies, handmade goodies, doilies, tags, etc. But, below is a list of specific items which I have spare:

Beads Printed fabric (cute patterns) Sequins for use on fabric or paper projects. 3D button like sequins Wooden buttons

Comment: Prajakta! Wow, what a gorgeous flipbook! I am going to have to take notes on how you constructed it, because there were so many lovely little nooks and tuck spots and pockets! You fit so many goodies inside, and the decorations were pretty as well! I also have to mention how much I loved all the postage stamps on the outer envelope. Thank you for a wonderful swap! ~Bee
Response: ☺️☺️ I am so glad that you loved the happy mail. Thank you for such a kind comment and rating. Happy crafting!

ultracinematik rated for Profile Based Happy Mail #01 on Jul 8, 2024
Comment: You lovely envelope and super creative accordion pocket were absolutely brutalized by the postal system. It arrived mangled and open (taped over) on one side and the pocket was in 5+ pieces, but it seems the contents are all accounted for. Thank you for all the fun stickers and papers to use in my own crafting. Hope you're feeling well. 💌
Response: Thank you for informing me about the condition of mail made by postal services. It’s sad that this happened but I guess we can’t do anything about their ‘checking’ the mail 🥲 I am very grateful for your kind rating and comment. Means a lot! I am well :) Happy crafting. Take care.

Thanks so much for the lovely handpainted PC! Would you believe it just arrived? It's marked as WIYM: All Group Anniversary Aug.20, 2022! Kind of amazing it finally arrived. I can't find that swap to rate you, so I'm posting my appreciation here.
