About Me

Hi everyone! I'm Shareen and I started by swapping flat items and creating themed happy mail. Then, I went a step further to explore other papercrafts and it's such a wonderful experience. 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 swaps. 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 online streaming sites came along, I stayed home more and binge watch on series and explore different genres of shows in different languages.

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 analogue pics.

I also have an Instagram account for papercrafting (link above).

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. :)

Favorite Television

American Horror Story, American Gods, Downton Abbey, 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, Queer Eye, Big Bang Theory, Graham Norton Show, Lost Girl, Bitten, Big Little Lies, Chernobyl, Peaky Blinders, Castle Rock, Into the Night, Game of Thrones, Sense 8, Virgin River, Ginny & Georgia, Hanna, The Witcher, The Irregulars, Gossip Girl, Locke & Key, Sex and the City, K-dramas, Japanese anime (like Shaman King, Demon Slayer, Jojo's bizarre adventure) , Master Chef, Grand Designs - cooking shows, interior design shows, reality series etc. - I'm a couch potato.

Currently binge watching reality series - Love is Blind and The Ultimatum on Netflix. It's my guilty pleasure!

Favorite Crafts

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

Recently been collecting (*more like hoarding) a lot of artist stationery from all over the world like LCN, Pion, La Dolce Vita, Black Milk Project, MT washi tape, MU craft, Loi Design, Blinks of Life, Innkbenchmark, Elsie with love, Meow Illustrations, Ours, Cats life press, Viva Las Vegas, Letras Literarias etc. They are so unique and I love to create my crafts from these lovely brands of stationery.

From my travels I've also discovered lovely brands like Sostrene Grene & Flying Tiger. Would love to explore other brands too if you would introduce them to me.

New stuff I tried so far: Stamp carving, Bullet Journaling, Handmade Postcards, Decorated Envelopes, ATC, Inkbox Cards, Masterboards, Embossing, Making Die Cuts and embossed papers/napkins, Watercolouring, Gelli printing, Prima Marketing Moulds.

Going to try: Leather crafting, paint marbling.

Join my Instagram account to follow my journey! :)

NOTE: I like to create handmade items and add them to the mix in my swaps as far as possible. I enjoy giving extras coz I got loads to share.😁 I try to send profile specific items as much as I can.

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, Guy Ritchie, Wes Anderson, 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, stamped images, gelli prints, fussy cuts, rubber, clear or foam stamps, die cuts, memo sheets(NOT "to-do lists"), writing paper, pretty printables, cardstock, ephemera (vintage/postal/floral/botanical/celestial/medieval/gothic/Victorian) handmade items (ie hand stamped ephemera, stickers, pockets, envelopes, folders etc.), small metal dies.

Postcard preferences - Naked and stamped, normal size or bigger than normal (nothing smaller than 4 x 6, please). Open to touristy or non touristy postcards, store bought or handmade, vintage, strange and weird, Art Gallery type, colourful or black and white. Just nothing religious/political or childish. I don't mind receiving postcards with clear plastic sleeves as I'll normally do that for my handmade ones as well.

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

I love vintage, florals/botanical, celestial, gothic, medieval, postal, 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.

For Handmade Postcards/ATCs/Inkbox Cards - Please make sure that a hard backing, like cardboard, is used for your crafts - nothing flimsy, please and don't use clear tape to secure your artwork. I've received them in the past and though I never rated those swaps down, I would sincerely appreciate it if you create something that you would definitely love to receive. I'd prefer if you would use mod podge or glue to finish your crafts to keep the materials in place.

Singapore doesn't have seasons so if your country experiences Autumn/Fall, I'd love to receive some fallen leaves. I think they are beautiful!

Thanks all!!

PLEASE TAKE NOTE

Do be patient with the current mail delivery durations especially during the festive season. If you have not received any ratings from me, I may not have received your swaps. Do not hesitate to ask. I hope you could have some screenshots and date of when you sent it out so I could check at my end if I had missed out.

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 3 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. 😊

Please DO NOT SEND...

Anything political or religious.

Nothing with pigs or dogs, please.

Kiddy or reward stickers(including puffy ones).

Edible things. (Packaged tea is OK)

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

Anything with loose glitter (Metallic inks are fine)

Planner items (I don't use one)

Friendship sheets/books

Kawaii items

Comment: Thanks for this gorgeous PC! I love all the elements you used and the contrast of light and dark with the black background! Winter, in my part of Alaska...the best word would be changeable. We just had a foot of snow, with temps down to 18Β°F, last week, and now today, we have rain, with temps above freezing. How about in Singapore? Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: I'm so glad it has reached u safely, Sherry. Thanks so much about sharing with me about Alaskan weather. Here in Singapore we have frequent thunder storms but its pretty hot and humid otherwise. We become too dependent on air-conditioning, unfortunately. I hope my other swaps reached u well. Do let me know if any escaped you. 😜 Thanks for the lovely rating. ❀️
