About Me

Hi everyone! I'm Shareen and I'm relatively new to Swapbot and getting the hang of it.

I started writing again during this pandemic and I re-discovered writing to penpals! I didn't know that many people still do snailmail. I used to enjoy it a lot when I was in my adolescence. However I'm in a bit of a slump lately as things are getting back to normal and I'm more into crafting and swapping 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. ๐Ÿ˜Š Private swaps are welcomed too.

I enjoy receiving anything really and I enjoy 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 do enjoy long letters and 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. :)

Favorite Television

American Horror Story, 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, 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 - Japanese Anime - Jojo's Bizarre adventure on Netflix ๐Ÿคญ

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!!).

Currently learning how to hand carve stamps. It's tough but it's fun. I also started journaling - not really into creating schedules and what nots but more like creative inspirations.

Just started taking on more handmade postcards and evelopes swaps, they are so fun to make! I enjoy collaging and I love how so many different items can come together to create a unique piece of art.

Also just started creating ATCs. Wow, possibilities are endless!

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 documenteries 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.)

I love colourful stuff or monochrome.

I'm ok with kawaii stuff but I'm more into vintage, florals, gothic, medieval and Victorian themes. I love spooky items like Halloween themed stuff so if you have some post Halloween items to give away that is greatly appreciated.๐Ÿ‘ป

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 nice too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanks all!!
