About Me

I'm from Melbourne, Australia.

I've been penpalling and swapping for over 20 years now.

I always send my swaps, most of the time within 2 days of getting the assigned partner(s), or if the sign up deadline falls on weekend or public holiday, it'll be within the next 2 working days. I like to prepare all the swap materials before hand, most of the time before signing, so I can do it quick. I will not sign up if I know I might be late or don't have the materials handy. So, IF YOU HAVEN'T got your swaps from me after the deadline, PLEASE contact me first, even email swaps. It might go to your spam folder due to your email settings and got deleted by accident, I can always resend it (BUT I always sent originals before the deadline time so I'm not breaking any swap rules). It's very important to me to keep my reputation clean because I respect my swappers and want them to feel safe and comfortable swapping with me.

Again, I live in Australia, and I know majority of people resides in Europe or USA, that's like half a world away. Snail mails and packages can be unpredictable. Please be patient and understanding.

I do not collect anything, however I swap/looking for a few items, mostly stationary and/or craft items to make FBs etc.

I swap HQ FBs and neat LBs.

Feel free to send me any excess FBs (HQ only please!) or LBs with your swap. I can always pass them on quickly.

I LOVE Chip and Dale, and Donald Duck.

I love Disney in general but absolutely HATE: Winnie The Pooh (I like Tigger, Eeyore, etc but not Winnie) and Mickey Mouse! The rest I'm fine with. Some of my favourites are: Koda (Brother Bear), Timon (Lion King), Aladdin, Cheshire Cat (Alice in Wonderland), etc.

Likes the colour purple, and sky blue/aqua/tuquoise or around that shade of blue :)

I'm looking for:
* Supernatural novels
* Chip and Dale Stationary (Letter pads, note pads, letter sets)
* Donald Duck Stationary
* Sentimental Circus Stationary
* HQFBs/LBs swappers from Japan/Asia
* Scrapbook paper flowers

Favorite Music

My favourite bands are: Simple Plan, Ronan Keating and ASH. I also like: Evan and Jaron, Nelson (Matt&Gunnar), Hilary Duff, and loads more.

Favorite Books

I love 'Love at Stake' series by Kerrelyn Sparks.

I also love pretty much all Matthew Reilly's books, esp. the 'Jack West' book series.

I love supernatural/vampires books/series so I've read: Broken Heart series by Michele Bardsley, Night World by L.J Smith (and trying to read Vampire Diaries now), Jeanine Frost, Kathryn Smith etc. Feel free to suggest anything similar, I might enjoy it.

Favorite Television

I love Supernatural, the TV series.

Also into Smallville, although haven't watch any eps for a couple of years now.

Favorite Crafts

I like making jewelry especially earrings with beads etc. If you are on facebook, you can look up 'Daviel Creations'.

If anyone interested, I can make some earrings to swap with craft papers, ribbons, brads, etc (FB making supplies) or cute stationary (Kawaii/cartoon).

And I also like making greeting cards, etc. And implement that into FBs as well. I just use normal glue, paper, ribbon, flowers, rhinestones, etc. I don't do fancy techniques like quilling or anything.

Flakers and Non-raters

I always make an effort to contact my partner if I haven't receive any swap. I don't mind waiting longer for postal swaps, but I always message them when I get rating reminder from Swap-bot so that they know I haven't rate because I haven't receive.

I've been flaked by:
* TheLizardWrangler on "This or That" questions - Note: This is an email one! rolls eyes
* Yvonne Hoffman - Nibbler2011 on Looks Like Spring - Handmade Card Swap - Account suspended, sent message never got reply as well.

Haven't received any rating, even after messaging them:
* Tina Terwilliger - sugarface25 on 50 Questions - account deleted
* Courtney Crittenden - Coretaknee on Email - Our Favourite Song #86

Wishlist

For those who prefers dot points.

  • Peel off stickers esp. borders and corners
  • ATC blanks
  • Stickers esp. Teddy Bears and Disney: Chip and Dale, Donald Duck, Alice in Wonderland
  • Address Labels (adheshive or not) esp. with Supernatural (Winchester Brothers) pictures - please PM for address
  • Blank cards
  • Cardstock A5/A6 sizes
  • Sentimental Circus stationary/letter sets/pads
  • San-X decorated envelopes
  • Deco tapes (esp. Kawaii/cartoon)
  • Small/tiny envelopes (around 5cmX7cm or 2"X3")

Hi Davina! This is for the profile hello :). I'm so sorry I'm late in sending this out! Crazy busy holiday weekend and before I knew it the deadline had passed!! I admire and respect you for being ahead of schedule!! So again I apologize! I would love to have a pen pal!! It's been YEARS!! If you are interested, I'm open :). I hear australia is beautiful!! I've never been but I have friends who have, sounds awesome! I'm not at all familiar with FB's or LB's, I am rather new to this swapping thing but I will for sure look into them!! And Disney is awesome hey! I would have to agree though, I'm not a huge pooh fan lol, I'm not even sure why! Haha! Supernatural is great, I suggest the book 'fallen', GREAT BOOK!! I will keep my eyes open for chip and dale :). Nice meeting you!!

Here's a big Profile Hello from the USA! Hello!

First off, I'd love to do a swap with you for earrings! Anytime! Drop me a PM, if you're interested. :)

Secondly, the Chesire cat is my hero, too! :) or perhaps that should rather just be the grin, like so )

Lastly, great profile: concise, to the point informative without a lot of foofery. I like it! I hope to see you in a swap sometime.

Cheers! ~g

Hello there! It was nice to read your profile and learn so much about you. I truly am with you about the postage being so much to send overseas but am glad that we can do these kind of swaps to entertain each other.
