Here to help keep snail-mail alive. I've "met" some wonderful people here and consider them friends. With that said, I try to put a bit of care and thought into swaps and encourage the same.

As far as hearts go, I give them for TPG: thoughtfulness (yours), presentation (yours), and giddiness (mine). I don't need extras with swaps since I'm in a constant state of downsizing. I prefer quality over quantity. But if I send you extras, it's because I have something I think you can use (i.e., you're helping me downsize). I love decorated envies, especially when they feature your artwork and collage.

Note: I'm allergic to cigar/ette smoke, and anything dusty gets me sneezing, too. So please don't send smoke or dust my way.

Favorites

  • colors: red, grey, yellow, aqua; purple & orange together
  • places: πŸ’— Scotland & England; Japanese Tea Garden, San Francisco.
    Wish list: Ireland, France, Japan, Scandinavia
  • flat stuff: kawaii sticker flakes, colorful unused USA postage, personalized swap cards, holiday stickers, large kawaii memo sheets, cat cards, anything BTS (world's oldest fan here)
  • not-so-flat stuff: measuring spoons, gel pens, glue-dots, anything BTS :-)
  • creativity: learning how to make homemade pasta and Shoyu ramen (there's a LOT of prep for good ramen); sewing & wreathmaking; mail art. Love fabric pre-cuts and high-quality quilting cottons (Dashwood, Dear Stella, Art Gallery, Windham). I'm a certified fabric hoarder and just as much a fabric snob.
  • themes: retro botany, UK, woodlandia, outer space, UFOs, kawaii, k-pop, chalkboard art, echinacea, Shinzi Katoh cats, paranormal
  • book collections: Edward Gorey, James Thurber, Clare Turlay Newberry, Shel Silverstein, Stephen King, Brian Wildsmith
  • stationery: anything literature-themed, kawaii, fun pens, Eric Small Things
  • washi tape: Japanese, Scandinavian, cats, kawaii, woodland animals, nature scenes
  • mail art: love original doodles, colorful washi, and collage on incoming mail
  • animation: Shaun the Sheep, Wallace & Gromit, Howl's Moving Castle, Chicken Run, Bob's Burgers, Teen Titans Go, South Park
  • movies: About Time, Parasite, Being There, To Kill a Mockingbird, Sophie and the Rising Sun, Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)
  • tv: documentaries, k-dramas/rom-coms, What We Do in the Shadows, Ozark, Fargo, Vikings, After Life, Welcome to Waikiki, Schitt$ Creek, The Office
  • music: BTS, GOT7, Enhypen, TXT, Santana, Van Morrison, Al Green, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, CCR, Valerie June, War, Led Zep, George Strait, Neil Young
  • Japanese kawaii: Favorite brands are Papier Platz, Saien, Sanrio, Doronbox, and Q-Lia. Kutusita Nyanko and anything Shinzi Katoh top my wish list. (Love Pusheen, also, but it's not Japanese.) I'm open to new designs, too!
  • animals: I'm an animal lover and on some days prefer them to people. Cats are my favorites (have 1), but I'm also a fan of donkeys, alpacas, Highland cows, foxes, owls, sheep, dogs, and unicorns (have 0).
  • spring: daffodils, dogwoods, stargazing, spring peepers
  • summer: fresh veggies, homemade lemonade, fireflies, Outer Banks
  • autumn: pumpkin farms, Halloween goth, fall foliage, crockpot chili
  • winter: snowfall, Christmas, quilts, birds at my feeder, puzzles
  • cute woodland designs: hedgehogs, owls, deer, raccoons, pines, foxes, botanicals, vintage camp scenes
  • sinfully dark chocolate

Comment: Thank you for the cute Halloween card and your nice note. I put up all our decorations today. We have about 50 kiddos in our neighborhood and I bought far too much candy.
Response: Thanks so much for the hearty rating! I haven't decorated much for Halloween -- just some streamers on my mailbox. But I'll put out my glowing pumpkin cat if it doesn't rain. Until next time!

Thank you for the gorgeous Christmas card and stickers. I absolutely LOVE redbirds, my grandmother's favorite bird and reminds me of her everytime I see them! It's just so pretty to look at with the glitter touches! Thank you again! Merry Christmas to you :)
