❤️ Sailor moon

❤️ Understading the psychological

❤️ Victorian

❤️Dark colours.

❤️Cream

❤️Metallic colours (especially gold).

❤️BOOKS

🖋Tea! I like most teas but lately I really wanna get some peach and or apricot tea.

🖋BOOKS: I added a link to my goodreads account, then you won't accidentally send something I've already read!

🖋Craft supplies ❤️ Lace, pens, watercolours, travel paint brushes, embelishments and pretty paper. My faves are any that have a vintage vibe or shabby chic look to them. Intricate patterns. I'm trying to build my collection of ephemera and journaling details. I LOVE when the corners are rounded and I get little journaling cards.

🖋Washitape: I love the beige washitape, I like science themed washi and washi with writing on it. Cute themed washi, I have no really thick or really thin washi so it'd be cool to receive a bit of those.

🖋Postcards I love reading what's written on them. I prefer them stamped and written on. So pour your heart out! Write about yourself, like what's a favorite memory you have or something like that. Send me written on postcards or send a blank notecard instead). Disney postcards: i only really like the ones that are the process of making the movies. The artwork behind the finished result, not really a fan of just screenshots from the movies.

🖋If you put time into what you send me, I'll probably love it! It's all in the details.

🖋Letters: Tell me a little about yourself and how you are.

🖋Sketchbooks, Ideally I'd need a paper that can withstand watercolor. But I will absolutely love any sketchbook in the paperblanks brand style.

🖋Movies: RomComs, hero movies , the classic Barbie movies are my guilty pleasure ,Thriller movies but not horror, Disney and Mess with your mind movies! like inception, the butterfly effect etc... Also, I love almost all studio ghibli movies: the cat returns, castle in the sky, howls moving castle, ponio, spirited away, naussica and I think kikis delivery service is my favorite!

🖋Notecards: Anything that goes with the themes I've mentioned above.

🖋Journals: I really LOVE journals, small side or regular book size, so not too big. I have a collection of around a dozen that I've accumulated over the years. Each of my journal books have a purpose, they all have something written in them. Although not all of them are full. Currently I have a dream journal, letters I might never send journal and my regular journal plus a couple books for writing ideas or poems or stories.My favorite is a "junk journal" I got as a gift from a swap.

🖋Wax Seal: I have yet to receive a wax sealed letter so pretty pretty please, if you can. I'd love to receive a small wax seal stamp of a bee or the letter C or V. And if you have some spare gold wax, I shall take it off your hands :P.

🖋 Snacks: I like sweets but also salty things. So candy and chocolate but also chips and nuts. My favorite chocolate is black chocolate mixed with something. I love mint tasting foods. And I can eat spicy foods.I'm allergic to walnuts, not terribly but it'll make my mouth itch.

🖋Shows: Sherlock Holmes!, Pretty little liars, Once upon a time, Switched at birth, Sailor moon (The older version!), Lately I've been watching You (wow that sounds creepy out of context :P) and How I met your mother.

🖋MUSIC: Musicals, jazzy and acoustic covers, Disney, Marianas trench Dodie Clark, 1D, and just specific songs like Iris by the goo goo dolls.

🖋Youtubers: Gabriel Brown Or black gryph0n, Jamie Jo (BananaJamana) ,Kasey Golden, Doodle Date , Pear fleur, DissociaDID , Juicy ink 💛 ,Safiya Niggard, Christine (simplynaillogical)

🖋Paperblanks micro format journals: If you happen to have some unused one please SWAP me for something you'd like!

I like stamps but I don't know what to do with them, if you do want to send some send me a list of what to do with them 😜!

ART & ME

✏️It couldn't be my profile without a bit dedicated to art 🎨

-I basically studied art for 3 years in college and although I've always loved crafting I never had skills in art but practice makes perfect and I keep on doing just that practicing the things Ive been taught and learning new skills.

-I like to try all mediums. I've discovered I really like gouache and watercolors (Im currently using the Sakura Koi watercolors and I bought a mini Daniel smith set which I'm saving for a rainy day) I don't really like drawing in graphite. I really like ink and fine liners. My style is very varried, take a look at my instagram if you'd like to see..

  • I've been scrapbooking quite sporadically for the past 6 years. Rarely because I'm a little picky.

-I'm trying to get into junk journaling. So, if you've got any tips, send them my way.

-I've been journaling practically my whole life.

-I spend way too much time watching artists on YouTube.

-I like nail art, it's like 10 tiny little canvases, I haven't done any lately though because I get gel nails done. I have eczema and the plastic tips really help to not hurt my skin when I scratch.

-I like trying different styles with outfits.

-I really like to send little paintings or drawings with the themes that you might like cause it often makes me practice something new and different and I hope my personalised creations will make people happy.

Swap-bot

I love being a part of this community, I like making just as much as I like receiving packages. Being on swapbot a little while, I've discovered that I'm actually a little picky. It takes visible time and effort for me to really get happy with a package or letter. It's all in the details ❤️. But when you really succeed in making me overjoyed I'll be sure to send you a thank you letter, maybe with a little surprise too. And if I'm happy with your package you'll get a heart.

I usually rate when I receive the swap. Sometimes I will forget to do it right away but I will always rate. I keep my non rated swaps in sent and archive my rated swaps, so then I can always keep track of what I haven't rated.

I will definitely contact you if there are any complications on my part and I usually respond quickly to messages. I really don't mind if you're running a little late but be sure to let me know. Add a little star with a C in it on your package if you read my full profile. (I always feel like it's too long and no one actually reads it all 😝) Thanks if you did!

Comment: Looks amazing so far. Thank you for reading my profile so throughly. Is the business card hidden in another envelope? I didn’t see it. I ADORE Mexican food so I’d love to visit! Love the letter you wrote and the flower gems. Such pretty colours. Wish I didn’t have to wait so long for my anniversary envelope! November is a long way away but I’ll try to be patient. Thank you
Response: Hi glad you like it!!! I actually forgot to put in the buisiness card, oops my bad, the names La Conquistadora and it's in saint jerome.. I wasn't sure to make one for your aniversary since it was so far out but I couldn't help myself, gotta celebrate love ❤️😁

Comment: Lovely letter. I'll be happy to write you back. We also saw the movie Lucy and loved it. Unfortunately we cannot get the BBC anymore (used too) but we watch many shows on Netflix, like Father Brown. I will look if Sherlock Holmes is there. I'll be responding in a few weeks. Enjoy the 1st days of Spring.
Response: Thanks for responding 😊 Just got your cute letter, I'll write back soon 😁

Comment: I loved how you made it into a pretty mini book! That was a very sad story but well written. I kinda figured he was dead when he didn't want her to go with him. I loved the metaphors you used. I also liked that the mom wrote tragedies on paper instead of saying it. Thanks so much for the booklet and all the pretty goodies, I definitely needed them!!!
Response: Thanks! I'm glad you liked it! Sorry it took longer than it should have.
