About Me


My name is Shiran, and I'm from Israel.

I'm studying for my Mastars in Linguistics, and I have a BA in both linguistics and special education.

I love to travel, I love different cultures, meeting new people and exploring new places. I`ve been to over 27 countries all around the world, and would love to visit more amazing places... (as well as visiting some memorable places once over..)

I love languages, word games and puns, and I enjoy reading books very much (though during my studies I don't seem to find much time...).

I enjoy DIY projects and craft work, I make hanmade cards, and decorative items. I appriciate a personal touch to any gift or letter. I'm addicted to Washi Tape (who isn't..?)

I love baking (and some other cooking), desserts are my favorite, and Chocolate Perlins are my specialty :) receiving your own recipes or recipe cards is very welcome!

Swap-bot is definitely a genius playground.

I have 4 small requests

if possible:

  1. Please attach at least a small note in your package... even if it just says "Hello!" or anything... It's much more fun than just receiving an evny with swap-items!

  2. When you get to the post office, ask them to put real stamps instead of just a price sticker... cost is the same, but the letter is happier this way! (I don't collect stamps, and yet I'm happy when they pop..!)

  3. My ears are not pierced... so if you feel the urge to send me earings... make sure they are either clip-ons, or stickery!

  4. Please don`t send me anything Coconut or Cinnamon...

Thanks!! :)

My Collections

I collect collections...!

I have so many, that I sometimes lose track of them.

My favorite one is the lettersets collection (matching writing papers and envelopes)! I've been nurturing it since age of 7 or so, and recently started buying some new ones... though I have to tell you, it`s hard to find lettersets these days...! SO, if you have them... I want them! no matter if they are brands or not (I prefer not..) or if they are childish or not (I prefer if they are..), or what shape they are (crazy shapes are the BEST!)..

I also have collections of gift bags (paper bags... "big brown bag" style), bookmarks, winnie-the-pooh-related items, spinning tops, and many others..

Will make me ultra-happy!


Colors: My fav. colors are Red&Black (I lived in a black&red room when I was growing up, since age of three, and it had it's impact!). I also enjoy Purple, Green and Brown... Unfortunately, I hate all shades of pink... so please don`t send me an "all pink package"..!

Season: I'm a winter-girl... so anything wintery will make me happy- rain, snow (it rarely snows in Israel...), umbrellas, pics of winter or what not...

Stuff: I like buttons, pin back buttons, crafting materials, washi-tape, handmade objects, stuff for my hair, bubbles, magnets, necklaces\pendants, ribbons... basically, I like STUFF! anything goes.. it doesn't have to be big, and it doesn't have to be expensive, but I'll rather it be thoughtful, anything YOU like to get, and if it's wrapped or has a personal touch to it... I'd like it even better!


Though I enjoy coffee, I'm definitely a TEA PERSON!

black, white, chamomile and yellow are my favs (yeah, I'm boring that way..), and after visiting China, I'm slowly getting used to the healthy green..!

I don't get along with "berries tea..." but my boyfriend wouldn't mind recieving them instead of me.... ha ha..

and I prefer herbal over fruity...

but still, anything goes... as I'm open to new tea adventures...

It goes around the world...

~ flakes and things I`ll never get rated for... :

Comment: So cute! ^_^
Comment: תודה מאמי. שלחת לי בדיוק מה שהיתי צריכה. אני אוהבת סבונים של סבון ורק לפני כמה ימי רציתי לקנות לוח שנה ובסוף לא קניתי.. וטוב שלא קניתי :) תודה וחג שמח.
Response: שמחה שקלעתי :) חג שמח!
Comment: Thank you for the letter and all the butterflies. I understand the reason why you made a lot of butterlies. best regards.
Comment: Thank you so much for the huge package!!!! Everything is so fun, and I can't wait to try all the different foods =) I don't even know where to start!! It all looks so great =) I can't even say that I have a favorite, because it's all so cool! Thank you so much!! My only question has to do with the "Crystal Mud" stuff; I'm not quite sure how to use that, haha =) The directions translate a bit funny and don't really make sense in English! Now I'm very hungry though and want a falafel because of that postcard! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!! Just let me know when you run out of lettersets and I'd be very willing to swap with you again =)
Response: YEY!! I`m so glad that it arrived safely... as for the crystal mud, it`s imported from china or something, that`s why the funny english exists... you basicly put it in a bowl\vase or glass\something, puor water in... and wait! it will grow over the next 24 days... then you filter the balls (since the water obsorb some of the silicone... and you pour fresh water in. then, once in a while add some water when the balls start to shrink... you`ll get the hang of it. it`s just for decoration, but you can add flowers or anything.. :) and I`m super happy that you liked the package.... enjoy it all!! it was a fun swap!
