30th March, 2018 Hi everyone :). I have started swapping again in earnest. If I have not rated you for an old swap or you have not received a package/letter from me, PLEASE INBOX ME so I can make it right!

About Me

Hi :) I'm a 31 year old female from Trinidad & Tobago, residing in the larger island of Trinidad. I joined Swap-bot because I wanted to start collecting post cards and find a few pen pals I could write to.

I have a few mental disorders and thought I would share this piece of information because I'd like to communicate with others who do as well. I also have Type 2 Diabetes.

I recently finished my Bachelor's degree in Music. My loves other than music are reading, Bob Marley, photography (haven't touched a camera for some time though), jewelry, jewelry making, writing, reading and learning new things.

Things I'd Like To Learn

Here are some things I'd like to learn how to do or get better at:

  • Crochet I have started but I find it rather difficult. I put down the hook for a while but I'm going to start a new, simple project by the end of January
  • Cross stitch
  • Mosaic
  • Quilting
  • Embroidery (learned how to do it in high school, but never pursued it afterwards)
  • Paper crafts
  • Working with polymer clay
  • Journal making
  • Making perfumes/soaps/body lotions, etc
  • Painting with acrylic and water colour paints
  • Drawing
  • Making ATCs

Things I Can Swap

  • Letters (I love writing letters)
  • Post cards (from Trinidad)
  • Trinidad & Tobago souviners (t shirts, key rings, post cards, tourist-y things in general)
  • Stationery (papers, envelopes, small notebooks, note cards, labels, pens and other writing implements, stickers, etc.)
  • Teas
  • Beads
  • Yarn/Embroidery thread
  • Jewelrery
  • Nail polish
  • Small things, generally (feel free to PM any questions you have)

Swaps I'm Interested In

  • letters
  • postcards
  • stationery in general and stuff from Hello Kitty or Lisa Frank - but any cute brands that I've never seen before are welcome too!
  • crochet (once it's something REALLY SIMPLE like a granny square, I'm a complete novice)
  • jewelry making
  • simple sewing projects (the operative word being SIMPLE)
  • stickers
  • anything cute, shiny and elegant
  • books
  • coloured pens
  • recipes
  • sheet music
  • anything that can help with decoupage projects, crochet projects, diabetic cooking
  • organic things
  • books/literature
  • music
  • anything that isn't in my 'Stuff I Don't Want' list (that covers a lot of ground.)

I'd also like to try a whimsy jar swap eventually, if anyone is interested.

I'm not too familiar with ATCs and matchboxes but I'd be happy to attempt a swap based on both if I could get an explanation on what I'd have to do. Feel free to message me about any other themes I haven't mentioned! And keep in mind though that Hello Kitty merchandise is difficult to find in Trinidad, but I can send you all the Lisa Frank stickers you desire. :D

Stuff I Don't Want

  • Christian themed stuff
  • patriotic USA stuff (postcards are okay however)
  • sweets/other eats that ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR DIABETICS
  • Halloween stuff
  • Thanksgiving stuff

Comment: You messaged me on Thursday, 3rd of May that you had serious health issues and would like to send the swap out the following Monday. On May 19th you messaged again that you would be in touch the following week when you could send your stuff out. You had last been online on June 5th but didn't read my message. It is more than two month now and I haven't heard from you. Unfortunately I have to rate you a 1, but I will be happy to change the rating if I should ever receive anything.

Hi, I went through your profile and found it interesting.I am also looking for a pen pal. Would you like to be one ? I am looking for someone who can be a long time friend and not just one time. You may go through my profile and know a little more about myself before deciding. I was one of your swap partners for It will be okay : Forgiveness swap. You would have my address but i don't have yours. Please do message me the same. Cheers !

Quick and Easy Profile Message #22

We have invited the humans to our House Party this weekend. We hope to get more information from them. And I have volunteered to go with them. I have many misgivings about this.

The human says she is enjoying the rain. She likes to walk in it.

Has my pc made it's way there yet? If not, let me know and I can send another. I'm finding that the US mail is very slow compared to a lot of other countries.

Would you be interested in doing a Private Postcard Swap? I have some great postcards of Washington, DC and would love one from Trinidad & Tobago. If you're interested, let me know!
