Also, my absolute favorite thing in the entire world is the Japanese comic book Paradise Kiss. I'm absolutely and totally in love with the character Miwako and her sister's brand "Happy Berry", so if you really really REALLY wanted to make my day you could send me absolutely anything with the Happy Berry symbol on it, especially something wearable~! Anything to do with Paradise Kiss at all is COMPLETELY LOVED~!
As for things I wouldn't like to receive, I'm really not picky and am happy to receive anything you're willing to send! The only thing I ask that you don't send is craft supplies, as I'm not a crafter at all. Stickers and little silly bits that can be used for other things besides crafting are fine, but I'm a professional seamstress so I don't really craft or sew as just a hobby. I already have all of the supplies I could possibly need for my trade, so excess stuffs just take up space in my studio!
Although I do love swapping, I have an incredibly hectic schedule (uni classes four days a week and enough homework to keep me busy the rest of the week, plus work) so sometimes my packages are a little late. I try not to take on more than I can handle, but sometimes unexpected things come up I can't find the time to send out even the simplest of swaps by their deadline. If this is the case, I will ALWAYS PM/e-mail my partners, so if you don't receive word from me I beg of you to contact me before you rate. The only reason that I've been rated with 3's in the past is because my PM's didn't go through to my partners and I'm still really heartbroken about that. I recycle almost all of my packaging and will always rate fairly - I try to give people the benefit of the doubt and I hope for the same courtesy from others.
Also, I'm just now getting into behind the scenes tags and swaps and I'm really really interested in doing one-on-one profile-based swaps. If you're interested in trading packages, please let me know, especially if you're international and live in Japan or the UK (although I welcome one-on-one's from anywhere)! I have a lot of little goodies that I collect from both of those places that are relatively hard to find in the States, so I'd absolutely love to do a private swap with someone from there!
As a little note too, I can usually only do e-swaps during the fall & spring (the months that I'm in NYC) because the closest post office is closed for renovations indefinitely and it's extremely expensive to pay for a cab/train to the next closest office on top of shipping fees. I go home for a few months out of the year, so that's why some of my packages come from NYC & some from Florida.
If you have any problems or concerns with me, my swaps, the world as we know it, etc. I ask of you to please let me know! I really do care about my partners and will work as hard as I can to accommodate them!
