My Photo Blog (Contains Spoilers!)

Wow! It's been almost four years since I've been on here! So much has happened since then. O.O

Most of my likes and dislikes are the same, so thankfully I won't need to update my profile much, but one huge huge change is that I, after 18 years with my husband thinking we couldn't have children, just had a baby!

(Somehow, when I edited this section of my profile, the explanation for the 3 disappeared. In 2013, before taking a break from the page, a letter went missing and I didn't know about it until I came back. The 1 was resolved to a 3, but I was unable to do anything to bring it up from there.)


  • ATCs (unless the swap specifies it)

  • Magazine/Cardboard Box/Newspaper Cutouts or Clippings (I don't use them)

  • Scrapbooking Supplies/Project Life .

  • FBs, Slams, Sticker Bags, Decos

  • Religious Items

  • Pixar

  • School teacher type stuff, like apples, pencils, abc's, smiley faces...

  • Hannah montana, High School Musical, etc

  • Dinosaurs Except T-Rex, for a friend and penpal of mine~ it's an inside joke :)

  • Cars/trucks/bikes

  • Bugs

  • Lisa Frank

  • Owls Unless it's Hedwig from Harry Potter... Hedwig is ok :3

  • Photos

I Especially Love These Things:

  • Kawaii ~I like sentimental circus, mamegoma, natto-san, nyan-puku, sushi-cat, and non-character things like cupcakes, macarons, and noodle bowls, etc.

  • Steampunk

  • Coffee and Tea

Especially love florals (lavender, rose, jasmine, etc), earl grey, herbal blends, matcha, and latte or Milk Tea mix packets. No popular US brands like Lipton, Tazo, Stash, or Celestial Seasons, etc. In other words, if I can buy it at Walmart, please don't send it to me. I swap so I can try new things not available to me locally!

  • Things from Japan or South Korea

Books/Pages, Newspapers, Magazines, Manga, or Manhwa written in Japanese or Korean, and Tea, Coffee, Sweets, Cosmetics, or Cultural Souvenirs. (Clippings are ok here)

  • SPOOKY stuff

The more macabre the better. Think horror, hauntings, abandoned insane asylums, poltergeists, gore, zombies, possessed dolls, rusty medical instruments. If it scares you or creeps you out, great! Halloween, but keep it scary or interesting! Vintage is a plus. Just no super bright colors or sappy dollar store kids stuff :p

I love realistic skeletons, books on real hauntings, creepy or goth-ish stickers and small scrapbook embellishments. When in doubt, go for goth stuff. Creepy is good. ;) Cute and creepy is good, too.

I have a recent obsession with Ouija Board stuff, my house is full of them, from my computer desk to my pillow cases and everything in between. This theme is always appreciated!

  • Vintage Themed Fabric

I make dresses out of handkerchiefs, and I like to make drawstring bags and tea wallet type things, too.

  • Classic Cartoon Fabric

The cheap, thin stuff is fine for this) My little pony, The little mermaid, Care bears, Sailor moon, Strawberry shortcake- those kinds of things.

  • Lace

Venetian, Cluny, Eyelet, or Embroidery. Please no stretchy nylon or scratchy raschel.

  • Themed Stationary

I love vintage, horror, tea and cake, kawaii, and postage type themes.

  • Pocket Letter Sleeves I'd like to start swapping these, and could use a few sleeves to start with. This would make an awesome extra if you have a spare one laying around!

Other Stuff I Like

  • I love most vintage things, antique and/or distressed look, things that have "weathered"; wabi sabi, etc

  • Victorian-inspired, Tea Cups, Marie Antoinette, Rococo, Peignoirs, dusty pastels

  • The macabre, unusual, dark, or scary. Ghosts, Cemeteries, Horror, Vampires, Zombies.

Favorite Characters and Themes

  • Steampunk keys, gears, clocks, tim holtz, embossed stamps, distressed colors.

  • Silent Hill metal grates, gore, creepy nurse, pyramid head, hell hounds

  • Geisha/Maiko kanzashi, kimono, traditional makeup, geta.

  • Dracula/Vampires Dark, romantic, or scary- no high-necked halloween capes and receding hairlines, twilight characters, or count chocula :p

  • Tank Girl Movie or comic themes~ offensive material is expected here. :)

  • Hatsune Miku Classic blue, snow miku, or sakura miku with the pink hair.

Comment: Thanks for the great tapes & nicely taped colorful envie! No worries on the circus stamp; mostly that was so people wouldn't send me note cards, etc. in that theme. I'm happy you send me some of the cool owl tape (with the backing); I've seen it but haven't ever bought any.

Great! Thanks for letting me know you received the washi tapes and I'm so glad you like them. If you can believe it, I found the stationery at Walmart! It was in the office supply section where the sticky notes are.

JossieAyame on Aug 24, 2015:

Just wanted to let you know that I received your letter. The parcel hasn't arrived yet, it's probably still going through customs (that sometimes takes 2-3 weeks longer). I'll let you know when I receive it!

JossieAyame on Jul 21, 2015:

Hehe no problem. Take your time. Thanks for letting me know =)

Well if you have a bed and you have a shed, I guess you have just about all you need except the kitchen sink!

wait if you have a sink you know there will be dishes too!

I'd have to say mine are SHINee and U-Kiss. I basically had all of the members as my bias at some point, haha. I don't listen to k-pop much anymore, though.
