About Me

I have lots and lots of kawaii and sanrio items. I am also a crafter and love to swap. cannot wait to meet you and have some great swaps! I love japan, cosplay, traveling, videogames, watching movies, christmas, lucky cats, dancing and just having fun and random silliness.

I reuse shipping materials

Favorite Music

Wreckless Eric. The Beatles. Reel Big Fish. Bowling for Soup. Nancy Sinatra. Foo Fighters. The Beach Boys. Colbie Cailat. Regina Spektor. Seether. Matchbox Twenty. Most punk covers. Katy Perry. American Hi-Fi. Flobots. There is so much more, maybe I will add more later.

Favorite Movies

Comedy. Anime/Manga. Any movie that makes me either feel good or messes with my mind. not to much horror though :( Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, anchor man, Stranger than Fiction, Coraline, Serenity, Underworld, Pan's Labyrinth...I own over 600 DVDs so it is hard to pick just a few to love!

Favorite Television

Battlestar Galatica. Better off Ted. The Office. Modern Family. Futurama. Survior. Amazing Race. The L word. Dead like me. Heroes. Firefly. Most anime. How I met your mother!!! The rest is just whatevers on...tv is mostly background noise for me.

Favorite Books

Folklore, satire, adventure, poetry, any nerdy books...anything that looks good and for more the most part is fictional. hate reading history books, ect bleh

Favorite Crafts

Bento, quilting, glass painting, cooking, sewing, painting, cosplay, whatever sounds fun at the time ^^

Why I am here

I want to make friends and have the chance to make people excited about looking in their mailbox. Heck I wanna be excited to look in MY mailbox!

Wanna Swap? I will always do personal swaps to if you happen to look at this and have something you wanna swap with me it wont hurt to message me!

Have a great day!


How-to bento book, Small Silverware Set, Wiener Shaper (I have Tulip, Crab, Penguin and Octopus if you find one other than those I would freak out as they are VERY hard to find!), Baran (bento),Bento Boxes.

I am redoing my bathroom in a pirate theme, I need anything cute pirates for it. I have nothing so far! Pirate legos (heart!), rug, trash bin, toothbrush holder, soap dish, soap dispenser, ect. I post when I get stuff!

Kawaii: Pandas, Cats, Owls, Elephants, Octopuses (anything octopuses, doesn't have to be kawaii), Peacocks(anything peacock, doesn't have to be kawaii)

Alice in Wonderland (older stuff not from the new movie please)

Studio Ghibli's Totoro toys & Plushies & anything Studio Ghibli film related

Fairy tale items: fabrics, stationary, stickers, kitchen stuff, pillows, or boxes.

Kawaii things such as; Fabric(a yard would make my day!), stickers, stationary, deco tape, memo pads, ect.


Sanrio's Tenorikuma, Chibimaru, Cinnamoroll, Kuromi, Chococat, LLoromannic (this is my favorite and will give you instant heart!!), Nyago(also instant heart item), ect.

Blind Box Figures. I really want: The Scavengers or ANY kidrobot (they do Dunny and Smorkin Labbit and LOTS of others)


Videogames, I am a HUGE Final Fantasy person! anything with a Moggle, Cactaur, Chocobo or other FF character will probably get you instant hearts!

Unique Handmade Amigurumi

Día de los Muertos

Whimsy Jars

I like ALL colors(including rainbows), but Favorite is red

I also love when things sent to me are wrapped * hint hint *

I'm not too picky, I just love getting things in the mail, especially Kawaii things.


Bugs/Insects (unless they are cute)

Watermelon or Banana flavored candy

Dora the Explorer



Disney's Cars

Black Licorice

Not much I don't like honestly!

Please do not send yarn as I got sent about 20 and I have plenty to last me a long time :)

Allergies: I have a few metal allergies so be sure all jewelry is plastic as sad as that is, Lavender, strong smells (perfumes, scented lotions ect.), Incense, ginger, and bananas.

SPECIAL NOTES: I live in Australia and we have a few restrictions to what can be sent to us. I cannot receive tea or wooden items. Check here for more details: http://www.daff.gov.au/aqis/mail/cant-mail

Also it gets rather hot here in winter so be careful sending chocolates or other things that get melty :( Also remember I am in the southern hemisphere so seasons are opposite to most swappers.


I should have put this in a LONG time ago. If I did not post you as an angel and you have angeled a package for me PLEASE let me know.

@FuzzyStuffies thank you for your kind package with tons of sweets and the best cupcake box ever

@Sewcrafty Thank you for making my 12 days of Christmas special. It was VERY kind of you.

@tothegoodtimes I loved the package, you put so much thought into it. It means the world to me!

I recently got flaked on 25 days of Xmas swap http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/40854 It is so sad to get flaked on a christmas swap. I really would adore an angel for this. It is a big one to ask for an angel, sorry guys :(

Comment: Thank you very much for a great package. Everything i loved! Sorry its a later rating i haven't been on here for a while. xx
Response: Thank you very much for the feedback! I am happy that you liked it :D
Comment: Tamara, Your packaged rocked! Yeah, I can't wait for christmas to unwrap things, so I opened then when I got it! You rocked my socks, thanks so much!
Response: I am so glad you are happy! I am always happy to go a bit overboard when it makes someones day <3
Comment: thank you
Response: I am glad you liked all the goodies I sent you.
Comment: Never received - will rerate if something is received.
Response: Resent again :D Hope it gets to you this time. I have sent twice and am not getting any responses :( I don't know that she is still on here, she has not read any of my messages...
Comment: I have to rate a 3. Marked sent on 19th but didn't send til 24th. First package was mainly 2 items, pie mold and a bag. The idea was there for pie mold but I had the other designs on my wishlist, not pumpkin as I already had it. The bag is a poorly made fake designer bag. I dont have any kind of bag on my wishlsit anywhere and I'm very against fake designer stuff. I offered to send the bag back to her but she said no. She sent a resend and it was a package of destashing for her. They're items I would never send to anyone and everything was on my dislike list. Spiral memo pad, little toys, soap.. It was almost like she sent things out of my dislike list on purpose. It did not meet swap requirement on deadline or package itself so I'm rating a 3. I offered to send the item bag, I gave resend a chance. That's it, sorry. Response to your comment: Are you kidding? Other people have no problem sending me profile surprise. U.S. postage stamps, tape, rubber stamps, ink pad, notecards, drink mix, etc. are all VERY easy to find. I found the pie mold few days ago at WS for $5. I dont know how much you paid for the fake, poorly made bag but I offered to resend it to you. I highly doubt you went out and spent money for the resend and if you did, it was the most random stuff. I took pics to prove what was in the packages. ETA: There is absolutely no way the packages mounted to $50 or even closer to it. I know what the items cost. You admitted in PM you just threw them together when the swap was to spoil your partner. You should also explain WHY I won't change your rating. Its because it was late and you marked sent without actually sending for another week. If it was only matter of quality, I would reconsider the rating with proper swap. Changing to a 5 when you were late and lied about sending is not a honest rating and unfair to others who might swap with you in the future.
Response: I just want to fix this. I have sent 2 packages and will send a third if you message me back. Update: I did spend proper amounts, in fact it was around $50 all up with the 2 packages, when it was only meant to be $20. I was also in the process of moving 8000 miles when I sent through the second. I do not have a WS and had got it online. I am very sorry you got upset. We both did. It was ages ago and you wont change this even if I send another package. Sorry it has to be this way.

miyi rated for miyi and cupcake spoil eachother on Apr 25, 2010
Comment: The package arrived tattered and enclosed in a plastic bag from the PO, but I think nothing is missing! The envelope was made from pretty hardy paper, not sure how it got so abused in transit! :( But yay for all the colourful stuff! And I didn't know about the Cactuar fact, thanks for the enrichment! :)
Response: Priority flatrate should have been treated better than that! Glad it got to you safe and you liked it.
