About Me

Hello there! If you are my swap partner, please double-check that you have spelled my name correctly. I have seen so many different variations and its very disheartening when I receive mail that doesn't even have my actual name spelled correctly. If there are any issues with receiving my mail, please let me know first through a message before you rate me. Mail can get lost!

Pastel purple is my most favorite color!! Actually I like all pastel colors, like pastel pink/purple/blue/yellow, cornflower blue, mint green, honey yellow, mustard yellow, blush, baby lavender, periwinkle and Kraft brown colors, but any color or hues will work for me. I love seeing things written in calligraphy, brush pens, fountain pens, or glittery gel pens.

I tend to reuse/recycle things such as calendars for envelopes, and plastic sleeves to hold paper or stickers in for swaps. I just think it is better for the environment and I am sure there are people out there who appreciate that. 🌱

Likes

I am currently obsessed with these kinds of paper. Plant fiber paper, onion skin paper, vintage bond paper, parchment paper, lokta/mulberry paper, thin paper, kokle finish paper, Kraft paper, blueprint paper, logarithmic paper, columnar paper, old newspaper, different languages paper, wax paper, dotted paper, engineering paper, ledger paper, grid/graph paper, texture paper, seed paper, cotton paper, washi paper, vellum paper, vintage/old/dated/yellowed/browned receipts and bus tickets. German paper tape, Dennison labels, address labels, ephemera, pharmacy labels, guest checks, railroad order form, receipts and tickets, anything by Cavallini, doilies, used stamps (any country), unused U.S. stamps of any denominations, all things analog, mail decorated with vintage stamps, and forever stamps are all things I love.

If anyone knows how to make them or can teach me, I would love some address labels too. Anything handmade or art made by you, I will treasure forever! I love rubber stamps, stamp pads, twine, and wax seals. Pretty packages and neatly packed mail makes me happy. I enjoy looking and making mail art. Whatever that is sent to me, I always like to know the origin of it if possible. Anything from Tombow (dual brush pens and the Fudenosuke ones), Gelly Roll pens, fountain pens and inks, Dennison brand, old ephemera, glassine/vellum envies, anything Calvin and Hobbes, anything from Flow magazine, Stickii Club, Pipsticks, Coldplay, We Bare Bears, Studio Ghibli, Mrs. Grossman, Cavallini brand, onion skin paper, Tomoe River paper, Midori, anything Hobonichi, or anything from the brand Traveler’s Company would be so awesome!

For tea, my most favorite is Earl Grey, English breakfast, chamomile, matcha, floral, or fruity, but I am open to trying anything and everything! Just nothing nutty as I am allergic to nuts. I would love to try many different kinds of teas around the world.

For postcards, I like ones that have milk bottles/jug pictures and illustrations, milky peko-chan, bicycles, balloons, clouds, tea, asian snacks and drinks, bunnies/dinosaurs/turtles, vaporwave theme, pink and cute, of space, constellations, hot air ballon, analog cameras, books, libraries, bakery, pastries, Meiji Apollo, Northern Lights, or of umbrellas, and soft rainy days. It can be sent naked or in envelope, whichever is easier for you and will make it to its destination. I just ask for it to not be religious (except of it is related to Buddhism) or of ad ones, but homemade ones are welcome.

I like stickers/sticker flakes (all sizes and shapes) that are kawaii/cute and decorative (such as Cinnamoroll, Little Twin Stars, Korilakkuma, any Japanese or Korean sticker brands (Suatelier, Crux, Q-Lia, Mindwave, Suatelier, La Dolce Vita, Papier Platz), San- X characters (Rilakkuma, Korilakkuma, Kiiroitori), Sumikko Gurashi characters (especially of Tokage, Tokage’s mom, real green lizard, all the Tapiocas, and Yama (the mountain)), Jinbesan, Totoro, Winnie the Pooh and friends, Lisa Frank, Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake 🍓, Molang, milky peko-chan, Meiji Apollo, milk bottles/jug, tea/desserts/pastries/food/asian snacks and drinks/fruit themed, strawberry, blueberry, matcha tea, bakery, bread 🍞, the super cute stickers of frogos, turtles, koalas, sloths, anything food, mochi-related stickers, dango 🍡, melonpan pastry, sparkly/glittery, buildings/architecture, analog cameras, record players, home decor, relaxed theme, bees and honey, dinosaurs, bunnies, bears, woodland animals, sceneries, galaxy-themed(the moon and stars, constellations, astronauts, stardust, spaceships, planets), bows, rainbows, clouds, plants, succulents, cherry blossoms, trees/leaves/flowers/nature, kites, wind chimes, umbrellas, hot air ballon, happy faces, boba theme, vaporwave, watercolor, washi stickers, rice paper stickers, typewriters, air mail/ par avian related, anything having to do with books and libraries, travel/adventure themed, and vintage themed. I ask that they aren't planner related stickers/reward stickers/teacher/sports/functional/kid stickers.

I like washi tapes (all sizes and shapes, perforated, die cut, regular size, extra large, clear background) that are from Chamil Garden, the San-X characters or Sanrio characters, from MT washi tape, Bande, Classiky, Kikusui, Manet, La Dolce Vita, Papier Platz, and Maste. I’ve really been really into the ones that look and are perforated like postage stamps. Other washi tapes I like are of grid/gingham/plaid, scalloped, mountains, hot air balloon, ice cream truck, boba theme, buildings/ architecture, transportation, wind chimes, grids, vintage themed, Kraft color, music notes, old paper notes, milk bottles/jug, the cute characters mentioned above for stickers, melonpan pastry, milky peko-chan, Meiji Apollo, analog cameras, record players, bows, rainbows 🌈 , florals and plants, succulents, cherries, cherry blossoms 🌸, hot air balloon, clouds ☁️, fruits (strawberry, blueberry), matcha tea, bakery, bread, watercolors, happy faces, vaporwave, mochi-like, dango, sceneries, typewriters, bees and honey, froggos/turtles/bunnies/dinosaurs/bears/sloth, umbrellas, desserts/pastries/food/asian snacks and drinks, galaxy-themed( the moon and stars, constellations, astronauts, stardust, spaceships, planets), anything having to do with books and libraries, adventure/travel theme, and air mail/ par avian themed. I ask that they not be washi tape with days of the week printed on it.

For kawaii memo sheets (mini, large, dies-cuts, odd- shaped), all characters and brands that I mentioned for stickers and washi tape are accepted. Like San-X, Mind Wave, Cruz, Kamio, strawberry, bears, etc. Anything from Korea (cottondanchoo or putsonyeon) or Japan stationery works for me! I do ask the memo sheets not to be folded if possible.

Authors & Books

I don't read as much as I used to, but my favorite book genre is YA. I also really like historical fiction, but it depends on what its about and what period and how the story is written. I'm not sure how to explain it, lol. I like well written books, romance, adventures, about love, ones that deals with Asian cultures, coming of age, LGBTQ+ subjects, spirituality, comedy/humour, memoirs, and family. I also really like books that have more than 1 perspective/ point of view in it, where each chapter is from one character and the next chapter is from a different character. A book made up of short stories in them, especially about love is my favorite too. I used to be a fan of fantasy books growing up, but not so much anymore. I'm trying to get more into chick lit, contemporary, historical fiction, cultural ones, ones that take place in France… I’m just trying to expand my books into different genres and see if I will like them or not.

My favorite authors are David Levithan, John Green, Jandy Nelson, Jenny Han, and Amy Tan. Some of my favorite books are How They Met & Other Stories, The Joy Luck Club, The Fault in Our Stars, The Book Thief, The Sky is Everywhere,The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Looking for Alaska, We Were Liars, The Chosen, and I am trying to re-read I'll Give You The Sun right now because I stopped midway a few years ago because it got so good and I didn't want to finish it. I know, I'm weird. I guess I just don't like things to end.Though I may like fiction books, I also like non-fiction books too. Books with poems in it are nice. c: I like the atlas one that shows you maps of the world, the ones that talk about people's cultures and history, and also their religion as well. I respect people's religions and what they choose to believe in or not believe in. I just find it very fascinating and interesting.

Please feel free to recommend to me or introduce me to new music, books (except for scary/monster/haunting things), tv shows, and movies! I am trying to get back into reading books and enjoying my down-time. If anyone is reading my profile and would like to get become pen pals, please don't hesitate to message me and talk to me! I enjoy reading letters and postcards I get, and learning about the writer through the medium of writing. I believe it is cathartic to just write and connect the old-fashioned way.

Dislikes

People's and pet's hair in my mail and on the envelope 0.0 Spelling my name wrong and the address too. I have no use for scrap paper(unless they pertain to my likes I mentioned above), page markers/tabs, sticky notes (only if the design or how they look pertain to my likes), or tattoos. I would prefer not to receive anything holiday theme (unless the swap I join specifically is for that or is a blind swap, but feel free to decorate the envelope however you choose cause I know some people get inspired by the holidays/in a festive mood and I don't want to hinder your creativity! I just would like to not receive anything holiday theme like St.Patties, Thanksgiving, Halloween, or Christmas (very minimal is ok like Christmas stamps) because I feel like I am only limited to use them when those times come around. Easter (if it's pastel), Valentine's/hearts or seasonal autumn/fall things though is totally fine so that's the only exception! So for washi samples and stickers, I would prefer to receive those that pertains to my like, please. No words/quotes/days of the week washi tape unless the swap specify for so, and no planner/teacher/reward/kids/sports/functional/emoji stickers either. I do not want to receive poor quality or dollar store washi tapes (you can tell by the feel and quality), or glitter washi tape either. Please make sure that these stickers and washi tape are sticky on the back/not running out of life. I like to decorate my mail with things I receive through swaps, and I have gotten some things that just don’t work right.

Please nothing with Keep Calm sayings, your hair or any pet's hair on mail, mustaches, emojis, animal prints, monsters, insects, anime or Pokemon things, snakes, spiders, beetles, rats, broken anything, scary/horror/gore/haunting, nude, religious related stuff (except Buddhism) or drug themed anything.

PLEASE NOTE: I have asthma, so if you send me anything that may smell of cigarette smoke, or very heavy/musky smell of something such as mold or cleaning solutions, please air it out first or I might have to throw it away if its too strong for me.
