About my swapping

If you haven't received an item from me please contact me first before leaving bad ratings and well figure it out! I keep a notebook of all my swaps and typically take pictures of everything I send as well and have tracking numbers to any packages I send out. Just ask if you'd like yours. Also if I don't meet swap requirements some how, please contact me first before leaving a bad rating, I will do my best to fix my mistake and make it up to you.

If you get something from me and postage is due, please, please, please contact me! I've been using vintage stamps lately and it seems they are falling off in transition, so I will be now trying to secure them better when possible! BUT please let me know, mistakes happen since I'm not perfect! I will send you stamps to make up for it though :-)

I always send my swaps out the day of or 2 days after partners are assigned. I typically get the stuff ready before the swap goes off (as long as its not profile based) so once partners are assigned then I can promptly send it out. I hate to keep my partners waiting and wondering if they'll ever get their items :-) also if the USPS ends up eating the items (we all know how that goes!) I know quickly to resend in a timely fashion!

I always take time to make swaps look nice and to be something i would want to receive in mailbox. I put my heart into all my swaps by looking at my partners profiles to learn more about them to make the swap as personalized as possible, because its nice to know a stranger went the extra mile to put a smile on your face! I know I appreciate it! I am here to have fun and make people smile. I love sending mail almost more than I love receiving it. I hate being flaked on just as much as anyone but my world won't end if I am flaked on, because I know atleast the person I sent stuff too for that swap were made happy... Which is what makes everything worth while.

I like to do nice things for swappers that are nice and not uptight and go the extra mile for anything... So don't be shocked if you receive a random package from me for 'just because'.

I sometimes will reuse packaging like bubble mailer envelopes, just to cut down on the amount of garbage that goes into landfills. I also have a few cats so I apologize if you find a few stray cat hairs in anything received from me... It happens.

I also rate everything I get the day I get it. So if I haven't rated you, chances are I didn't get your item.

I have noticed some people are really crazy on here and their profiles come across very demanding. I figure if you send me something I don't like that much, then ill reswap it eventually with someone who will like it. It's the thought that counts to me ultimately. I promise I'm not one of those crazy nit picky people, and I've very easy going and laid back so don't be scared to approach me with anything :-) I can't stand drama, so if you're here to start drama I will block you and not give you the time of day! I am here to swap, so that is why I am typically in a bunch of swaps... I'm not here for drama!

If you are new or need help building your ratings and you see stuff you have to swap that ill like... Especially Lisa frank then ill definitely do a private swap with you! Just message me :-)

About Me

I am 27 years old, and I LOVE LISA FRANK! I am working on a lisa frank tattoo sleeve on my right arm now. Visit my site to see the amazing pictures :-) I love anything bright and neon! Rainbows are amazing, and I love unicorns as well.

I love Japanese Kawaii. I have ALWAYS loved the sanrio characters. I have Hello Kitty tattooed on me, but I love all the other characters JUST as much. I plan on adding them eventually! Sentimental Circus, Fairy Tale World, and anything with kawaii cats on it are amazing. I love Deco Tape as well! Gel pens are exciting too! My favorite animal are cats! I also have a bunch of hermit crabs. I collect Japanese stationery... I absolutely LOVE it! I am obsessed! Its so bad! LOL I also collect ANYTHING lisa frank!! I LOVE stickers! Stickers make me smile!! Scratch and sniff stickers are even better :-p I also have been collecting got milk? Ads for almost 15 years. I have a big binder of got milk ads so if you have any laying around in magazines send them my way!!! I am also paralyzed from a car wreck when I was 21, and im a T11/T12 incomplete spinal cord injury... before my wreck I went to school to be a certified Vet Tech, so I love all animals really. Im not a HUGE dog fan though. Pink is my favorite color... bright neon in your face pink. Any neon color after that that blinds you would be my favorite. :-)

Likes

Lisa frank anything!!! If you have any Lisa frank paper or stickers... Especially vintage stuff please send it my way... Heck if you're in a kawaii paper/sticker swap with me send me Lisa frank stuff instead if you have Lisa frank paper/stickers!

Kawaii anything!! Sanrio characters are my favorite like chi chai monchai, deery Lou, Charmmy kitty, chococat, badtzmaru, panda apple, etc. San-x characters I like are sentimental circus, mamegoma, the black cat, the characters that aren't that popular with them. Other kawaii brand characters I like are foods with faces, the intestines and poop, cats, the animal slugs, pickles the frog, fairy tale world, story of children, the Alice ones...

You can send me diddle, some people don't like it but I don't mind it at all :-D send away!!

I like other stationery's, pretty paper, pretty envelopes, stickers, etc that aren't kawaii too!

Stickers- If you have sticker flakes please send me those first! I prefer those over other ones. If you don't have any then I like holiday stickers, scratch and sniff, animal stickers... Real animals being my favorite, cats, kawaii sticker sheets, rainbows, unicorns, Lisa frank, scrapbooking stickers.. I prefer no boy themes, Disney ones, or child cartoons

I love tokidoki things!!! So if you have tokidoki paper or figures you don't want please send them my way!!! See my wish list for figures I already have!

I love deco tape more than washi tape

Bright neon colors pink being my favorite

I just started collecting plushies of Lisa frank and sanrio kawaii characters

Got milk? Ads, I've been collecting them for almost 15 years and don't have a lot of the newer ones so if you have any in magazines you get tear them out and send them my way!

love cats!!! I have 8 :-D

Love rainbows and unicorns!!

True blood anything

walking dead anything

Dislike

Swaps that smell like smoke! Please if you're a smoker maybe put a dryer sheet in the swap so it's not so strong smelling to a non-smoker! I won't give you a poor rating it over it though.

PEOPLE NOT RATING IN A TIMELY FASHION!!!! I hate having to message a person multiple times to see if they received my items or not... Or if they hated it or not... And getting rated a 1 due to it then!! Maybe you should wait until you're able to rate people before opening your mail so then you don't 'accidentally forget to rate' or 'not sure if you got it and if you did it's lost'... Resulting in to me sending you another one because of you not being organized. It's not very fair to not rate promptly in my opinion.

Religious stuff. I don't mind religion, just don't don't think it's appropriate for a swap unless it calls for it.

Political stuff leaning to the right

Kids items like Disney and Dora are a few examples

Teas and other drink mixes since I don't drink it that much

Coconut!!!!

Dark chocolate!

Drama

Hair accessories

Jewelry

Make up

Perfume

Gloves/scarfs

People crying poor (everyone is!)

Not getting a simple thank you when being rated

Having a message read and not responded to when asking a question.

Postcards

I like postcards that are touristy where you live and show any kinda landmarks, historical significance, odd tourist attractions, or pretty scenery. I also don't mine inappropriate postcards either! So send anything you think could be offensive, cause I'm not easily offended!

I prefer my postcards to be written on them and stamped, unless the swap calls for something otherwise. I like to hear stories about a trip you took to the place on the card, how your day is, or a funny random story about something that recently happened to you. If you speak another language write it in that language and translate it for me :-) please include the swap and your user name on the postcard since I get postcards from several websites, and swaps :-)
