About Me

I'm Irit from Israel. Nice to meet you. :-)

I am a translator and avid crafter. I love Japanese things, both traditional and modern, and collect Inu Hariko dolls. I have recently started a collection of Ema prayer boards from Japanese shrines. If you have access to them, please let me know!

I have a very large collection of urban vinyl dolls. My favorites are the blind box ones.

I love to take photos of everyday scenes with a twist. I also document street art in Tel Aviv.

Private swaps are fun! If you'd like to have a private swap with me, drop me a line. :-)

Comment: Hello and thank you for the package! I am always interested in food/candy from other countries, so you chose well for this swap. :p I've actually tried some of them already, and they're very good (especially the ones in the bags, the small ones that weren't wrapped individually ... I can't write what their name was, but they were really good!). Thank you!

Comment: תודה על הכל, כל הדברים כל כך חמודים :) אני ממש אהבתי כל דבר ודבר, אבל במיוחד את הגלויות. גם שמחתי שכתבת קצת על כל גלויה על הגלויה :) החבילה ממש שימחה אותי וגרמה לחיוך רחב על פניי. תודה ותודה על כך שהצתרפת להחלפה.

Comment: Eeeeep! Love the custom tee Irit! :D There are many Jewish people in my neighborhood and I wonder if they'll ask me about it? Love the necklace! Awesome swap! Thanks again:D
Response: I don't know about Jewish people, but I think it's safe to say that every Israeli would certainly recognize the logo. :-)))

Comment: Although I already knew a little about you from our emails, I was really quite surprised at your "inconveniences" while travelling. They were quite thought-provoking! The Hanukkah foods look AWESOME! :P
Comment: I loved reading about Israel - your foods all seem to be among my favourites!! Good job I don't live there or I would be huge!! I love applesauce too! You're not alone ;)
