I'm Carla from Costa Rica, mom to a baby boy (born on June. 6, 2019). I have been pen palling and swapping since I was 9 years old. I used to be a serious stationery collector, especially collecting letter sets, but stopped collecting and compulsively buying stuff online on July 2018. Ever since, I only really buy stuff that I will use, trying to enjoy what I currently have and actually use it, not hoard it. I have enough stationery for several lifetimes * shame *.
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.
As a former serious letter set collector, 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 comes like that or is a letter set I am looking for. I especially like Sanrio and San-x brands, but also other Japanese and Korean brands.
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 would really appreciate this. The same applies for loose sticker flakes and stationery in general. Thank you in advance!
I love to travel and it is an important part of my life. 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, if time and money allow it.
