I am on swap-bot to make friends and have fun. If you would like to correspond with a friend from Hawai'i, please start by watching these two short videos and tell me what you think of them:
I love piano, ukulele, and stringed musical instruments from different cultures., I am interested in making/restoring ukulele. I make lei and jewelry using seeds from Hawaiian plants.
I welcome pen pals from the Hawaiian Islands who want to share friendship. I currently have tons of mainstream writing stationery, so no need to send more to me, unless you have written a pen pal letter to me on it. Email pen pals from anywhere on Earth are also nice. I am more interested in forming friendships than accumulating stuff. I would like to find some like-minded people.
I love to cook. I experiment with adapting recipes for use with local Hawaiian ingredients. I grow many kinds of tropical fruit and like to use them in recipes. I cook mostly vegetables, fruit and whole grains. I don't cook with dairy, eggs or meat. I have too many vegetarian cookbooks, so no need to send more to me.
I follow an Earth-centered path. Everything I do centers around caring for her - reduce, reuse, recycle, planting trees, beach cleanups, water conservation, sustainable agriculture, plant-based diet, reducing fossil fuel consumption, any efforts to reduce greenhouse gases and climate change, replacing plastic with Earth-friendly alternatives.

art supplies: No big craft stores here, so I love to receive tools and materials, like wood glue, small drill bits, wood and stone carving tools, decorative wide packing tape, white-out tape, small silver clasps, headpins, rings, and findings for jewelry-making.
I collect old picture frames, mostly wood, but sometimes metal, to frame my artwork and photos of ancestors.
