About Me

Hi! My name is Mayje (pronounced like the color Beige), 42 years old, from the Philippines. I love crafting, collecting, reading books and county style magazines (Country Living/Country/Country Woman), swapping, cooking and gardening (I am a cacti and succulents enthusiast/collector). I do beaded jewelry, decoupage and some DIY home decors. I am fond of recycling and upcycling things.

I love glass beads and I am trying to collect a bead or two from other countries for a project I am doing. Hopefully, one day I can show it to everyone.

I love to drink coffee and hot chocolate. I like trying different coffee flavors and mixes.

I love cactus and succulents. I'm quite addicted to it! :)

I love Swap-bot! I may not be swapping regularly or might take some short or long breaks from swapping but I still do check the site from time to time. :)

Please Do Not Send

  • Please do not send me anything with cats or kitten graphics (I'm scared of them!). Thank you!

  • I do not really like anime, kawaii, cartoon characters, neon colors.


When sending a mail to me, can you kindly tape all four sides of the envelope please. Also if possible, no custom registration. They charge us for it and it is quite expensive. Thank you!

I mark my swaps sent the day I handed my mails to our postman. In the event that I cannot send my swaps on time, I will message you and try to work things out. If you have not received my mail after 3-4 weeks, please message me. I will also worry about it so I might send you a message too.

Hi Ate Mayje :D

I hope you're doing well. Napadaan lang po. I saw that you like reading materials about the Amish lifestyle. Madami po kong nakikitang books nun sa Booksale. Kaso mga fiction and romance lang.. Hehehe
