About Me

Currently March 5, 2011

Holy moly I haven't been on here in forever. I didn't realize there were 2 outstanding swaps but I will take care of them in the next few days.

I love my family more than anything in the world. I have a son who is amazing, best kid in the world! A great boyfriend who loves me dearly and an extremely cute/happy dog. I work all day at a nine to five job and look forward to my time off. When I can I like to make and collect cute things of all sorts.

I am a terrible writer which leads to choppy about me profiles but I do love making lists for everything.

*I love all things crafty, handmade softies/plush, and zakka! *

I like private swaps with themes :)

Lucky Parcels, if you're interested let me know.

as always I prefer quality over quantity.

I like making packages for people. I don't usually join too many swaps at one time so I can make sure I can put all my efforts into the things I send out. I know some people can work on mulitple swaps at one time and send nice things but this works best for me. If you don't receive a swap from me please let me know as soon as possible. I know what it feels like to be flaked on and I would hate for anyone to have that feeling even for a second because they didn't get my package.

I have a website/blog, sometimes I give stuff away- go check it out if you like http://thefruitysalad.com

---- i put photos up of my swaps on flickr so no peeking if you want it to be a surprise----


Favorite Music

I'm not a big music junkie, I will listen to whatever sounds good to me.

Favorite Books

Japanese crafting books

I'm looking for more things to download to my nook to read so if you have any suggestions let me know

Favorite Movies

Any of the Hayao Miyazaki animated films.

Original Starwars, LOTR, Spaceballs, City of God, Garden State

Favorite Crafts

I finally learned how to crochet so I could make Amigurumi critters.

I love making softies/plush things from wool felt, fabric, just about anything I can find.

Making magnets

I've become addicted to making bottle cap pincushions recently as well.

Sewing, baking, embroidery, drawing, painting, photography,

as much I love other peoples papercrafts I am terrible at it and wouldn't have use for the supplies


  • Anything zakka

  • Cute Bento supplies

  • Ikea

  • deco tape

  • Fabric: cute Japanese prints (not regular children's fabric), linen, mohair, 100% wool felt

  • Handmade: softies/plush, bags/pouches, stamps, wearable mini button pins, bento containers (anysize)

  • cute Themes, not realistic images: mushroom, pineapple, owls, elephant, hedgehogs, bunnies, Nintendo, gnomes, squirrels

  • I like cute things, I guess that's Kawaii -like food with faces, milk character, tofu guy, pudding guys, happy go lucky, piggy characters, stuff like that. I'm sorry- I don't know all their names and brands as I am just starting out on the Kawaii adventure.

  • 3" Dunnys

  • zipper pulls

  • cell phone charms

  • domokun

  • tahki cotton yarn, any color-I can't find it anywhere


  • Chocolate: does not do well with the heat here and turns into a big mess (same with candles).

  • Cosmetics

  • Sanrio/Disney/Diddl items

  • Hello Kitty

  • Floral

  • Country

  • Baby/little children related

  • acrylic felt (like the kind found at Joanns/Michaels)

  • acrylic yarn ( I prefer cotton)

Comment: i'm so sorry to do this but i'm so disappointed :( still no word or nothing for another month, I feel like I have no other choice but to rate you a 1 for this :( I know you've been not feeling well but after contacting you about it through flickr/twitter a few times and after another promise from you to resend in november I thought things would work out :( communication is the key and i feel like all i've been doing is chasing you trying to get you to communicate with me. I don't mind delays, I understand that you're not feeling well, but talk to me about it. I feel like you're just blowing me off :(

Comment: Hi, I've tried getting in touch with you by swap-bot and e-mail to let you know that I've not received my journal yet, but I haven't heard back from you. If we try to work things out, I'll be happy to change the rating.

Comment: Finally I received a big Envie from Japan, with Stickers and Decotape - whatever was for the Tag and the Swap - I love them all! Sorry for all the inconvenience, I have no idea, why the other Packages never made it.....oh, and Jakob loves the Decotape, he said he only wants to send out Packages sealed with this tape, if the adressee promises to send the decorated box back to him :o)

Ferret rated for ♥Goodie Pouch♥ on Apr 5, 2010
Comment: I finally got your package and I liked it a lot! I especially loved the pouches (the birds one was made by you wasn't it?) and the stamps. It was worth the waiting.
Response: I am so happy you received it. Yes, I did make the bird pouch, your profile said you liked animals so I wanted to be sure to make you something special that you would like.
Comment: Thank you for the great matchbox and the extras, I loved the mushroom! Your crochet skills are so awesome! I hope one day I can learn to do something like that!
