About Me

Last updated 5.10.21

Please reach out to me if you haven't received a swap from me.

I want to buy new or used large Kawaii memo pads, if you're selling, please message me!

I'm always looking to do private Kawaii swaps so if you're a newbie or interested, feel free to message me.

Hello there! Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I'm a mid-30s female from the Midwest. My interests include traveling, shopping, and reading.

Multiple Swaps: If I am your partner for multiple swaps, please feel free to send them all in one envelope/package to save on postage and shipping materials. Just make sure to label them correctly so I know which swap is for which.

Wishlist

  • Vintage Kawaii stationery (sticker sacks, memo pads)
  • Envelopes that are large enough to fit large memo sheets (A6)

Planner

divider

2021: A planner wasn't even on my radar this year.

2020: Just carrying on blindly. No planner this year, physical or digital.

2019: I'm thinking of using something more digital for the new year despite being tempted by all the gorgeous planners out there.

2018: I went back to a very similar planner to that of the one I had in 2016. I find that it worked the best for me. This year I am concentrating more on content than the actually decorating. I do throw in some stickers and washi tapes but everything is more simple.

2017: This year I tried using a horizontal A5 Happy Planner. I love the look but I haven't been as consistent in decorating. IT WAS A FAIL!

2016: I have been consistent in decorating my planner (which is a simple Clementine Paper planner I bought from TJMaxx for $7.99). I didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I do now. I don't care much for decorating as I do writing it all down.

Kawaii

Since I am here mainly for the Kawaii swaps, I figured I ought to have a more comprehensive Kawaii section.

The short version is I like anything cute and girly. And I prefer not to receive anything weird, boyish.

I'm into older, vintage Kawaii but I know that they are either harder to come by or really expensive. I don't want to stress my partners out if they cannot send me vintage items (always a nice surprise but never expected).

I'm in the process of downsizing my massive vintage collection of Kawaii stationery but I still love swapping them. I'm open to anything you would like to send my way. However, please note my "prefer not to receive" section below, especially in regards to counterfeit/knock-off items as they seem to be more and more prevalent these days.

divider

PREFER NOT TO RECEIVE:

  • PLEASE DO NOT SEND FOLDED LETTER SETS OR MEMO SHEETS
  • Kawaii that features real building/room/people
  • Shinzi Katoh brand
  • Daiso Kawaii
  • American Hello Kitty (items you find at Target, Walmart, Michaels, JoAnn, Hobby Lobby, etc.)
  • Zakka/Real life sticker flakes (unless it's dessert/food related)
  • Die-cut, coupon, or origami memo sheets
  • Non-branded, knock-offs & counterfeit Kawaii

Alwayz Kawaii have a really nice guide for telling if a sticker sack is genuine or questionable.

Washi Tapes

Unless the swap calls for it, I would prefer not to receive washi tape samples as I have a lot (both samples and tapes in general).

Likes

  • Favorite colors: mint, teal, turquoise
  • Lovely White/Orange Story stationery
  • Food with faces
  • Awawa Chan, Natto Chan
  • Vintage San-x characters

Dislikes

icon

Disney, Winnie the Pooh, Snoopy, and Diddl. I'm not really crazy about these characters.

Please no religious, academic, or holiday items. I'm fine with Kawaii Obake.

No magazine cutouts, scrap paper, foam stickers (I get way too much), confetti. Also nothing too masculine like mustache and sports. No ribbons or fabric tapes.

Currently no more journal cards & Project Life cards, please. Also no more ephemera and die-cuts. No academic stickers or dollar store stickers.

Junk in general.

Comment: Thank you for introducing me to what Kawaii is all about. I am hoping my Swap Mate is not disappointed in what I sent. I am a newbie to Swap Bot and wanted to bring sunshine to someone's day.I am going to share some of the stickers you sent with a 14 year old girl Pen Pal I have acquired thru Postcrossing. She smazes me with the letters she continues to send. Love that a teenager who enjoy snail mail - letters are a llost art! You made my day! Warmly, Pat Cook

Aww, thank you so much for the RAK of the sticker sack! It’s too cute 😍😍

I put in the lamp post without a problem - despite not have instructions on how to assemble the post! Now that it's up, it's not lighting and I'm waiting for advice from the manufacturer for troubleshooting before I take off the top to fix it.

Also got the 1 oz of kawaii from the public forum kawaii tag! An excellent mail day! Thank you!!

sebastian122 on Oct 16, 2020:

Alice flakes! Thank you for the delightful tag!
