I'm Carla from Costa Rica. I have been pen palling and swapping since I was 9 years old. I swap almost everything that fits in an envelope ^-^. I enjoy preparing and packing my swaps. I always read profiles carefully to try to meet likes and avoid dislikes. I love to make my partners happy with the swaps I send.
I collect letter sets, especially Sanrio and San-x brands. I like sets with 2 sheets + 1 matching envelope, but I will also accept sets with 1 sheet + 1 matching envelope if the original set came like that or is a letter set I am looking for. I have a lot of letter sets to swap, and I'm always looking for letter set swappers. If you are interested in a private swap, you can take a look at my Picasa album, there are all the letter sets I have available for swapping.
When sending letter sets to me, please do not fold them and pack them nicely so they don't get bent during transit. Use a cardboard and a plastic bag to protect them. Thanks!!
If you are my partner on a letter set swap, you will surely get a ♥ heart ♥ from me if you send me all the designs of the letter set, instead of just loose designs from different letter sets. I'm a serious letter set collector and I would really appreciate this. Thank you in advance! (The same applies for loose sticker flakes :)
I sometimes swap other things like kawaii sticker flakes and sacks, memo sheets, deco tapes, jewelry (esp. earrings), socks, pins and typical souvenirs.
If you are interested in a private swap, just PM me! I'm always happy to do private swaps ^-^.
I love to travel, my biggest dream is to travel all around the world one day. I think that every place has something different that makes it special. I try to do a trip at least once per year, but of course it is sometimes too expensive, especially if you go overseas.

Japanese animation: I love anime and manga. I have seen many series and I currently follow many others. Some of my favorites are: One Piece (Love Tony Tony Chopper), Naruto, Bleach, Hajime no Ippo, Kenichi, Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, Hunter x Hunter, Skip Beat! and many others.
Important note: I take pictures of all the swaps I sent and put them in my Flickr album the day I post them. If you are my partner and want your swap to be a surprise, please don't look at my sent folder.
I used to have a section for flakers and non-raters, but it makes my profile look ugly, so I decided to remember just the good people. This section is for all my angels. Thank you for being great swappers!
I like to angel swaps whenever I can. I hate to be flaked on, so I know how it feels. On the other side, I like to make people happy ^-^. I consider it as a random act of kindness, so please don't ask for an angel. I angel swaps when money and time allow me. Also, if you have received an angeled swap from me, please kindly update your profile so that other people know that the swap has already been angeled.
