About Me

UPDATE: March 2020 I just got back to swap-bot after over 2 years of inactivity due to family issues. I sent all my swaps before I had the break, and rated all swaps I've received.

2017 Hello, My name is Pei. I recently moved back to the US after living in Norway for a few years. I used postcrossing while living in Norway to avoid going home to an empty mail boxe, and I collected a lot of postcards on the way. I joined Swap-bot because there was a Lantern Press postcard swap at the time, but I recently grew fond of the ATC swaps.

Aside from postcards, I also have a huge collection of washi tapes (around 1200 rolls), but there's always new ones popping up, so I'm thinking about collecting washi tape samples too.

Other hobbies I have are:

-decorating my to be sent postcards,

-I keep a planner/diary of a sort, but my friends call it an artbook, because I include my doodles, photos, and washitape/sticker decoration with the entries :P I love spending time on my book !

-Although I don't have much time for it anymore, I love cross-stitching! my favorite patterns are from a Korean brand called SODA

Favorite Music

I am open to most music (although I don't really understand acid rock) depending on my mood. My current favorite song is "Defying Gravity" from the musical "Wicked".

Favorite Books

I grew up on the Harry Potter series, so it is one of my favorite series. Otherwise, I mostly enjoy mystery (not supernatural) novels.

I also like graphic novels, my favorite is "Detective Conan" (aka Case Closed), and Red River.

I also enjoy reading historical fictions and non-fictions from both Eastern and Western culture.

Favorite Movies

I mostly like action, comedy or a mix of both.

Series-wise, I like the Harry Potter Series, and LOTR and Hobbit series.

I also enjoy Disney movies, my favorite movies are Zootopia, Tangled, The Little Merimaid, and Beauty and the Beast (2017).

Favorite Television

I love Elementary (watching it as I type) ! as well as: Criminal Minds(stopped watching the last 2 season though), Bones, well you get the idea :P

I also like watching anime. My favorites are:

Detective Conan(aka Case Closed), Prince of Tennis, Sailor Moon, Hikaru no Go (Sai is my ultimate bias!), Attack on Titan, Kamisama Kiss, Fruits Basket, Inuyasha My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!


I mainly collect/join these kinds of swaps:

*Paperclips: I recently grew really fond of paperclips! Be it shaped paperclips or handmade altered paperclips, I love them! If you have an extra one, I'd love to add it to my collection.

*Postcards: https://www.flickr.com/photos/peipostcard/collections/72157672254190763/

  • Lantern Press
  • Lali Riddle
  • Gensodo
  • Snoopy Town
  • Asian Disneyland Resorts (Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong) I love Disney resorts in the States and Paris too, but they don't really have new postcards, except for the annual 3D postcards which I also collect.
  • Rolf Lidberg trolls

*Starbucks gift cards:=location or holiday specific

*Washi tape samples:

=I have a bunch of washi, so I'm not too picky, but really not fond of thin ones.

=lately, I'm really fond of Taiwanese brands and Michaels washi (I don't buy Michaels because I don't like buying tapes in sets, They add too much to my collection in one go, but still like samples) tapes. Also, anything unique from your region would be great.

Rubber Stamps: =I like to hand carve rubber stamp

=interested in swapping hand carved rubber stamp prints (not the stamps themselves)


UPDATE: June 2020 I'm trying out alcohol-based markers lately. I'm not great at it, but try to practice, so I'm doing a lot of HD/HP atcs lately. Also, really into making shakers at the moment, and still love using watercolor.

UPDATE: March 2020 I've tried a lot of different methods to make ATC cards. I was really into HD/HP before I had the break in 2017, but I am currently interested in making mix media collage, even though I still like doing watercolor atcs from time to time. Be reassured, I take my time in making all of my ATCs, and I hope to receive ATCs that you put your effort in as well.

July 2017 =I learned about ATC a few months ago. I'm trying out different methods and themes. I try my best to fit receiver's preference. I currently like to make HD/HP atcs using pen and watercolors, but I also like join swaps with new techniques. For embellishments I like using dried flowers from my garden, rhinestones, fabric, ribbon/lace, emboss powders, rubber stamps both store bought and hand-carved by myself in making ATC cards.

  • ATCs I'd like to receive :)

=my #1 favorites are carefully HD/HP ATCs = my favorite themes are:

Disney: Duffy and friends, Zootopia(Nick and Judy), Mickey, the Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Rapunzel

Movie/TV: Harry Potter, LOTR/the Hobbits,

Anime: Detective Conan, Prince of Tennis, Sailor Moon, Hikaru no Go (Sai is my ultimate bias!), Attack on Titan, Kamisama Kiss, Fruits Basket, Inuyasha (Sesshร…ยmaru and Rin), or if you can make a picture inspired by Gensodo girls?

other: Snoopy, Garfield, Miffy, The Little Prince, Little Red Riding hood, the Smurfs(cartoon version not 3D), Lunar New Year, Wisteria, mermaids, whales, rabbit

=if you are not a HD/HP artist, I like ATC made with effort. Please! NO old photo with people (ie paper dolls from Tim Holtz) they scare me, sorry T_T Anyway, I rate hearts according to how much effort you put into the ATC , not extra goodies.


=Dislike: I'm not fond of thin ATCs that can bend into a U, or sticker/photo/picture slapping. Also, old photos with people (ie paper dolls from Tim Holtz) scare me. Please make your card something you'd like to receive yourself.

=please don't send me coffee, tea bags, or other edibles as extras.

=Note: please make sure you have sufficient postage on your envelope. I once had a swap that cause the mailman to come to my door to collect the owed postage. It was troublesome for me to find change on the spot and for him to come to my door (we don't have door to door delivery service).

Comment: Love the peanuts Feb ATC
Comment: Hi Pei! Apologies for the late rating-- I could've sworn I already rated this... I double-checked all of my mail so I'm glad I noticed it. The washi you shared with me are gorgeous! I'm especially enamoured by the picnic one showing persimmons on top of a board and a striped blanket. Do you recall where you got that? I'd love to have some of my own to use for my journal.
Response: Glad you got the card! that is one of my favorite washi too. I bought it from a Chinese seller on taobao (kinda like aliexpress, but they only send within China) I used an agent to send to the States, sadly most Chinese washi illustrators only print 1 batch, so it is out of print now.

Response: Glad you like the swap :) Did I send you tissue paper? Sorry, I don't remember what I put in envelopes :P But I thought I sent you wax paper (maybe?) They are made for wrapping homemade candy but I like to use them in crafts.
