About Me

I'm 27 and I have been swapping and pen palling for about 10 years now. I'm new to Swap-bot, but have heard good things through my other pals :).

I love to exchange letters as well as trade all sorts of things, particularly cute souvenirs, stationery, stickers, fans, tea, candy, sweets, and so on. I really love tarepanda, hello kitty, charmy kitty, chococat, pandevi, batz maru, orange story, diddl and so on.

Some of my favorite letters and parcels I've received from pals are the ones that are elaborately decorated and contain a small surprize pressie :).

I try my best to match my swaps to the likes of my buddy (as stated on their profile). The more accurate information on the profile, the better to help me pick something you will truly like :). If you don't like something, my feelings won't be hurt if you share with someone else - it's better than going to waste!

I like quality over quantity and you might think by my profile I am picky, I just say my tastes are refined :)

Penpalling and Swapping

I'm always on the hunt for excellent new penpal swappers :). I enjoy both, so I like to exchange with others that do too. Nothing beats a decorated parcel complete with goodies and a fantastically written long letter. If you are looking for new pals too, please message me - I'd love to hear from you!

Arts and Crafts

I've dabbled in numerous arts and crafts over the years - my favorites currently are graphic arts and photography.
I occasionally do ATCs, Inchies and Twinchies; not too often due to time constraints though :).

Ratings

I love to give and get good ratings!
When someone puts extra effort than what was required in a swap you'll most likely always receive a heart from me. Sometimes it's extra special decorating, sometimes it's matching the items to my profile perfectly when not required by the swap or adding something with extra value. I can't give hearts and 5's if you don't send, so please make sure you send :)
I always send my parcels out on time or early, if there are any delays I will always notify you. If you did not receive my parcel, please let me know and I will do my best to rectify the situation. I always try to include something special in each parcel, whether it be something extra or matching profile items to my swap buddy - anything to put a smile on their face :).

Groups

Please do not invite me to any groups at this time. I do not have the time to keep up with any groups currently. Thanks for your understanding!!!

Comment: Wow you used almost every pattern! I couldn't get the hang of a couple of them. We may have snow for Xmas...I live in the high desert and it snows here usually lightly, once per season, right around Xmas and New Years. As long as I don't have to drive anywhere I am ok!! Thanks for the teas, I look forward to trying them. Happy holidays!
Response: I had to practice some of the patterns out on paper first for fear of messing up! Hope you enjoyed the tea.
