About Me

2/21/2015 PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tape the s&#% out of whatever you are sending me. I don't care if it takes me all day to open it. I just had my mail tampered with AGAIN but this time, the ENTIRE contents of the package was stolen! It was completely empty! I am so extremely pissed and disgusted! I've sent a complaint to the postal inspector and I'm hoping this time, they investigate my mail carrier and fire them if they find that it was them. They seem to open items that are not taped shut. I've had a thank you card from my sister-in-law ripped open and put back in the envelope when they found there was no money. I've also had a mini memopad stolen out of a box where they depressed one of the top flaps to steal whatever would fit without ripping the whole box open. So please at least tape any envelopes or packages closed so they can't easily be opened.


I'm going to try to very s-l-o-w-l-y get back into swapping. Maybe 1 or 2 swaps at a time and no tags since they're a little harder to keep track of right now. But I hope to be back in full force soon! I miss it here WAY too much to be on 100% hiatus anymore!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Happy mail!! Please feel free to decorate mail you send me! I love kawaii deco tape, washi tape, stickers (cute and kawaii), embellishments people put on envelopes and packages that are sent to me. I really enjoy peeling them off, lol. I also like stamps! If you have lots of different stamps, please feel free to use different ones!

My name is Rachel and I am a 28 year old stay at home mom of 3 kids. My fiance works and brings home most of the bacon :) We just had a little boy! His name is Zachary (Zach for short) He'll be 1 year on 9/10/14! Time flies!

Some facts about me:

I'm a Christian

I have 9 tattoos

I have 3 ear lobe piercings on each ear, my industrial (right), cartlage (left), nose (right) and my tongue pierced.

I'm an organized collector. My OCD doesn't allow me to be a hoarder ^_^ I can't stand a messy house.

I deal with constant pain but try my best not to show it

I love to sing

I love to draw

I love snail mail and happy mail! (It's like Christmas to me!)

My favorite color is BLUE

I visited Australia in March 2008 (1st and only time I've been out of the US)

I love to crochet

I've been trading, buying & selling on other sites since I was 13. I think my favorite part is hearing from my trading partners that they love their items! I enjoy being a giver rather than a receiver. Don't get me wrong, I love getting goodies ;D

I went on vacation to Australia and spend the majority of the trip in NSW but we also visited the capitol in ACT. We stayed in Tomakin at a timeshare. I've been obsessed with the culture ever since. I think I filled my entire 4GB mem stick in my camera. I could definitely go on and on about the trip but then my profile would be even longer!!

My favorite things!

*

Kawaii ANYTHING! (Please see my kawaii section at the bottom of my profile)

Dragons

Anything Asian. Or Chinese/Japanese style. Kimonos, fans, dragons, origami, art w/ traditional painting styles, koi fish, bamboo, pandas. Like I said, anything!

Invader Zim Specifically, GIR!! I have the dvds, fridge magnets, slippers, ringtones, jewelry...I LOVE Gir! I wish I had more!

X-Files I'm slightly obsessed >_<

Tattoos I collect real tattoos as well as temporary tattoos. Asian theme is my fav, but I also like butterflies, flowers, filigree, dragons and traditional.

Piggies

Giraffes

Pandas

BACON!!

Whimsey jars

Postage stamps (I'm starting to like them, a lot! Especially foreign and limited edition US ones)

Funny things

Favorite Music

I don't know what I would do if I didn't have my music! It's probably my favorite escape. I can go somewhere in my head and just listen forever...or until my phone dies >_< I can relate to so many songs and it makes me feel like I'm not alone and someone else feels the same way. I love to sing and when I hear my favorite songs, I just let it out, lol. I think I'm a pretty good singer. But that may be from my fiance swooning over me any time I start singing XD He's always said I have a beautiful voice but I've always thought otherwise. I guess he's just helped me be more confident in myself

I love a variety of music but my typical genres are country, alternative, christian contemporary, pop & rock. I can probably say I seriously dislike rap. I like Eminem and that's it.

My favorite artist are:

Sarah McLaughlan (SUPER FAV) Anna Nalick (SUPER FAV) Adele 30 Seconds to Mars Blake Shelton Blue October Brad Paisley Crossfade Fun. Linkin Park Imagine Dragons (Ironic, I know) Incubus Kings of Leon Lady Antebellum Lifehouse Luke Bryan Miley Cyrus Miranda Lambert Mumford and Sons Of Monsters and Men Our Lady Peace Paramore Rise Against Slipknot Stone Sour Taylor Swift The Fray Zac Brown Band (SUPER FAV) Zac's voice is amazing!

I also have MANY favorite songs but when I hear other songs on the band/artist's album, I'm not so impressed, so they don't make the favorite artist list.

Favorite Movies & TV

Right now, we don't have cable (very sad because I like my background noise) but we have the standard crappy local channels (qubo & ion are pretty much the only 2 channels that come in on this stupid antenna)

I love all kinds of movies. Some of my favorites are The X-Files, Princess Mononoke, The Last Airbender, Awake, The Craft, Cloverfield, The Fast and Furious Franchise, Transformers (I can't wait for #4!) The Day After Tomorrow, Die Hard franchise, Eagle Eye, Final Destination franchise, Green Lantern, Jeff Dunham specials, Harry Potter franchise and tons of others. I love comedy, horror, action, drama, sci-fi. I don't know why, but I really don't like movies older than me. There's a few, but I don't like classics, westerns or anything with Steven Segal or Sylvester Stalone.

~~~~~

My favorite shows are Pawn Stars, Ghost Adventures, Criminal Minds, Paranormal State, My Ghost Story, Celebrity Ghost Stories, X-Files, Ghost Hunters, Invader Zim, Avatar, The Voice, America's Got Talent

I'm also kind of a video game junkie! I love Skyrim, any Legend of Zelda games, especially on wii and game cube, Spyro, Assassin's Creed, Final Fantasy, Brave Story (on PSP), Gravity Rush (PS Vita) and too many more to mention.

Favorite Crafts

My very new craft I just started doing is crochet. I wanted to make amigurumi animals and my mom has been crocheting since she was 12. She'll be 60 at the end of May. So I asked if she could teach me. So far, I've made a pig, a duck, a couple granny squares, a flower, 2 hearts and a "dishcloth" (that's what the tutorial claimed it was, lol) and I'm currently making a blanket for my 7 month old.

Peeling deco tape, washi tape, stickers and stamps from envies I receive. Yes, I made it into a craft =)

I enjoy scrapbooking. I haven't made any pages in a few years because I always seem to need something I don't have, like patterned scissors.

I also enjoy making jewelry. I use mostly swarovski crystals.

ATCs. I started doing these like 3 years ago. I pretty much only do pencil drawing (color and graphite) simply because my imagination sucks. Either that or I can't get the end result to look like the idea in my head.

I like to draw. I draw anime, dragons, kawaii, portraits and just about anything.

I've been sucked into the Loom Band craze! I'm just starting out, but I make a lot of the bracelet designs that are out. I'm always trying to learn more designs

I'm starting out making handmade envelopes. I just received a very nicely made template and I'm going to give it a try.

I enjoy sewing and making purses and little bags about the size of a smartphone. I was more involved in this several years ago. I made a laptop bag with 3 pockets in the front.

I want to try to make matchboxes but I don't have a template and I don't have ink for my printer to print one out.

I'm also interested in making bookmarks

APCs. I have a ton of trading cards. Football and Marvel Metal, mostly. I have no idea what to do with them because the selling value isn't very high and no one is buying them, so I thought I might try making them into APCs. But I've never seen one before =/

I just picked up some blank white cards and envelopes for handmade greeting cards. I have to get myself motivated to make one

Handmade postcards. I've only made one so far, but I enjoyed it and I'd love to get new ideas!

Wishlist

Crochet hooks Small sizes 9 & below

Crochet thread size 10 or 20 any color (Would love some verigated colors)

Anything related to my favorite things mentioned above

I'm always looking to swap kawaii. (see last section)

Anything to do with dragons. I'm really looking for the USPS Year of the Dragon note card set with note cards, envelopes and stamps.

Unused forever stamps and 20c stamps are always welcome

Washi Tape!!

Anything real silver (coins, bullions, jewelry, etc)

Cardstock for scrapbooking

Scrapbook stickers

Findings for jewelry making (Sterling silver ear wires, headpins, eyepins, swarovski beads)

Candle making supplies

Moulding clay (fimo or other)

Cool stencils. Same likes as above. Dragons, giraffes, stars, flowers, filigree and similar designs (I'm looking for plastic stencils since the cardstock ones cut from cricut machines and similar only get a few uses before they're no longer usable)

Tokidoki Unicorno Frenzies!! I found them at Hot Topic. I think they're totally adorable! I want this one REALLY BADLY!!

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w515/Artdragon_1013/TokidokiUnicorno.jpeg

Postcards (please click my Zazzle wishlist to get an idea of the kind of pc's I like) with vibrant colors, landscapes, seascapes, kawaii, dragons, asian buildings, animals (any), state and city cards, (no vintage, please. See dislikes section)

Standard sized greeting cards and envelopes. I use these to send 4x6 kawaii memos. Thank you cards or blank with profile based designs on the front or handmade is always welcome

Notecards and envies (religious welcome!) I use these to mail just about everything small!

Sealable cellophane baggies that fit 4x6 kawaii memos, small memos and sticker flakes. I used to be able to find these at Michael's but they don't carry them anymore.

Rainbow loom bands (any color welcome)

4 weight yarn. Solid and variegated colors

Bon bons in any color

Matchbox template

Rolos (I'm just starting with these and I'd like to see what you've made to get my creative juices flowing)

Your competed APCs. I would love to see what they look like.

Handmade anything, really. I love learning new crafts. If I suck at it, at least I can say I tried.

Used postage stamps from all over the world. I would love it if someone who has a huge lot they'd like to swap for other items I have to trade

bead boxes. I love storage boxes. I use them EVERYWHERE!

Flatback rhinestones

safety eyes for amigurumi animals

fiberfill

fat quarters

Embroidery floss

buttons

Dislikes

There's not a whole lot I don't like, but I guess I'll figure it out the more I trade ^_^ Here's some though

~ I'm not into slambooks or anything like that. I'm actually not quite sure what they are.

~ Brown and yellow (I can take them in small amounts)

Kawaii Goodness!!

I adore anything kawaii! Some of my favorite style of characters are pictured below

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w515/Artdragon_1013/BabyAngelAnimalsnotepad.jpg Baby Angel Animals http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w515/Artdragon_1013/Kiraxzfriends.jpg Kirax Friends http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w515/Artdragon_1013/StarlightFriends.jpg Starlight Friends http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w515/Artdragon_1013/Starkittygiftbag.jpg Star Kitty http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w515/Artdragon_1013/Bubblebabies1.jpg Bubble Babies

I like other characters too, like some Hello Kitty. Like when she dresses up in costumes (especially dragon costumes and kimonos).

Other characters I like:

Little Twin Stars

Sentimental Circus

Mamegoma

Tarepanda

Pucca

Cinamaroll

Blue Bear & Babu

Eve Angel (She's made by Orange Story and I found her many years ago and I'm so disappointed because I can't find her anymore) The pic file is way too big, so here it is. If anyone has any stationery or stickers with her, PLEASE let me know if you're willing to swap, or if you know what sites sell her.

I'd love to receive these in a swap (private or group)

Note and memopads, sticker sacks, loose sticker flakes, full sticker sheets (no stickers cut from sheets, please), deco tape samples and full rolls, erasers, pencils, pens, cabochons, sticky notes, handmade kawaii =)

Items I have to swap

cardstock in many sizes and colors/designs

Scrapbook embellishments and stickers

Lots of make up (Hard Candy, Mary Kay, Loreal, just to name a few)

Postcards. I'm still building my collection but I have a few I'd be able to offer until my collection gets bigger
