About Me

Hi everyone! I'm Shareen and I've already been on Swapbot for a year! It was hard in the beginning as a newbie, there aren't many swaps to join but slowly I've learnt to make new things and join many swaps and even made a number of friends through this delightful site.

I started by writing letters to penpals during this pandemic which was something I used to do when I was way younger. I didn't know that many people still do that so it was really fun to join during the lockdown. However I'm in a bit of a slump lately as things are almost getting back to normal. But I realised that I'm more into crafting and swapping now rather than writing.

I've always been a stationery addict and this new/old hobby of mine is definitely helping my stationery stash grow into a mountain. I'm also recycling/upcycling materials to be crafted into my letters. It has definitely challenged my creativity. I love every minute of it!

Besides that I'm also quite the movie buff. I love cinemas but after Netflix came along, I stayed home more and binge watch on series and explore different genres of shows in different languages. It's so accessible! Wonders what technology can do in these times.

I love photography and travelling. I love taking pictures with film cameras so do check out my lomohome link above if you want to check out my vacation pics.

I also have an Instagram account for my penpals & papercrafting (link above) however I'm no longer accepting new penpals. Unfortunately, I'm still struggling to reply to my mails.

You can always drop me a DM on IG or private msg me here. I love getting to know new people. 😊 Private swaps are welcomed too.

I enjoy receiving anything really and I love cultural exchanges and knowing stuff about the place that you're from, your heritage, the people you grew up with etc.. I'm just fascinated about people!

I'm pretty much drawn to the dark side -I like morbid things and death in particular so motifs with skulls and ghouls are very much welcomed.

I like it if you make an effort to create something by hand rather than giving store bought items. But I don't mind either way. I just love a person's genuineness to communicate to reach out to someone and make a connection. :)

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: I'll be taking a break from swaps from August 2021 onwards till further notice. I'll finish my last July swap by end of this month. Just need my received swaps to catch up to those already sent out.

I'll still be contactable and monitoring my Swapbot messages and ratings. 😊

Favorite Television

American Horror Story, American Gods, Dirilis Ertugrul, Khurulus Osman, Mars, 2 Broke Girls, New Amsterdam, Shadow & Bone, Black Mirror, Umbrella Academy, Emily in Paris, Gilmore Girls, Hart of Dixie, Vikings, Suits, Big Bang Theory, Graham Norton Show, Lost Girl, Bitten, Big Little Lies, Chernobyl, Castle Rock, Game of Thrones, Sense 8, Virgin River, Ginny & Georgia, Gossip Girl, Sex and the City, K-dramas, Japanese anime, Master Chef, Grand Designs - cooking shows, interior design shows etc. - I'm a couch potato.

Current craze - Rewatching ALL seasons of Friends on Netflix before i could get to the Reunion. Does gives me a different perspective of what the show was about. So many real life issues, relationship drama and sensitive subject matters were brought up in this show during the 90s despite being a sitcom. The writers were amazing. A deep appreciation for such a great show.

Favorite Crafts

Paper crafts, mail art, penpal letters, paper collage, photographs, pockets, folders, flip books, postcards, hand-stamped items - rubber/clear/foam stamps (I love stamping!!).

New stuff I tried so far: Stamp carving, Bullet Journaling, Handmade Postcards, Decorated Envelopes, ATC, Inkbox Cards, Masterboards, Embossing, Making Die Cuts, Watercolouring

Going to try: Gelli printing

Join my Instagram to follow my journey! :)

NOTE: I like to create handmade items and add them to the mix in my swaps as far as possible.

Favorite Music

House, Trance, RnB, Hip hop, 80s music, 90s music, Pop, Rock, alternative...

Some of my favourites are: Mansun, Muse, U2, Mariah Carey, Bad Religion, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against The Machine, Diplo, Tove Lo, Dua Lipa, Calvin Harris, Toto, Mr Big, Fat Boy Slim, Jamiroquai, Paul Van Dyk and Ellie Goulding, Ed Sheeran, David Guetta.

Favorite Movies

I'm a big fan of horror flicks. I also love movies by Spielberg, Lucas, Tarantino, Tarsem, Tim Burton, Guillermo Del Toro etc. I'm a huge fan of Star Wars, Harry Potter, LOTR, Star Trek. I enjoy sci-fi movies, inspirational drama, action movies, historical documentaries etc. I simply love movies!

Items I would love to receive

I do love the element of surprise but I also enjoy receiving washi tape and stickers or stuff that can help me with crafting like pages from an old book or images from old fashion magazines, rubber, clear or foam stamps, memo sheets(not to do lists), sticky notes, writing paper, pretty printables, ephemera (vintage/floral/medieval/gothic/Victorian) handmade items (ie hand stamped ephemera, stickers, pockets, envelopes, folders etc.), small metal dies.

I love colourful stuff or monochrome and metallic inks (NOT glitter!).

I love vintage, florals, gothic, medieval and Victorian themes. I also love spooky items like Halloween themed stuff so if you have some post Halloween items to give away that is greatly appreciated.πŸ‘»

I'm drawn to stationery with images of cameras and skulls on them and even architectural structures or design elements.

I'm happy and open to receive stuff from my fav movies and tv shows too.

Since it's not so safe to travel now, receiving souvenirs from your country of origin is fantastic like postcards, fridge magnets, brochures or posters, clean coasters. πŸ˜‰

Thanks all!!

PLEASE TAKE NOTE

Please note that mail to New Zealand, Australia, Europe (especially Scandinavia and Eastern Europe) and USA from Singapore might take a month or more to arrive or even longer in some other countries.

Do let me know if you have not receive my mail. I would appreciate if you wait till at least about 2 months had lapse before informing me, though. Mail delivery is really unpredictable! I'll try my best to notify my partners that my mail has been sent out or if it was returned. I am willing to resend. Just communicate with me about it. 😊

Please don't be alarmed if I were to enquire about the swaps you have sent to me. I could be messaging you if I have not received your swap too. I would generally wait for at least 4 months to lapse before asking you, though. I do take note of the dates that you have sent them out for my own reference.

Important: Please rate me when you receive my mail. I would normally rate what I received within the same day.

Thanks for your understanding. 😊

Things I do not like

Please DO NOT SEND the following to me:-

Anything political or religious.(I've received postcards with bible verses before so please don't - I'm a Muslim. Thanks for respecting that.)

Kiddy or reward stickers(including puffy ones).

Edible things. (Packaged tea is OK)

To do list memo pads. (I have too manyπŸ˜…)

Anything with Glitter (Metallic inks are fine)

Planner items (I don't use one)

Friendship sheets/books
