About Me

Hello, my name is Zara. I'm 34 and I’m an aspiring illustrator from the UK.

I collect stamps, stickers, notebooks, sketchbooks, journalling bits and all things retro. I have an avid love for stationary, which is currently on the borderline-hoarder status, but I adore it all anyway. I am very unorganised but like to kid myself into thinking I am by procrastinating and making to-do lists and schedules. Unfortunately, my art desk spends more time getting re-organised than it does getting used for art.

Favorite Music

My favourite music includes; Air, Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, Pink Floyd, Roxy Music, Bowie and a whole bunch of other stuff from the 60s, 70s and 80s. The list is quite endless and also includes classical music and tv themes.

Favorite Television

I find it difficult to watch tv shows if they are presently popular. I usually wait at least five years before indulging in such television. My favourite TV shows include; Columbo, Fawlty Towers, Pee-Wee's Playhouse, Alan Partridge, Blackadder, Dexter, the original Twilight Zone series, The young Ones and Bottom. I am pretty much a massive fan of all named above.


I am always grateful of any gifts received and I would never judge anybody for their choice of gifts to send. Alas, seeing as it's customary, I'll name a few of my most favourite things, in no particular order...

*Washi tape

*Stickers (journal/kawaii/food/drink)

*Pages for journals

*Handmade items (of any kind)

*Magazine cut-outs (objects/nature/quirky -stuff I can use for collage)

*Stamps (used or new)

*Pens/Markers/rubber stamps

*Letters (Hand-written letters are best :) )

*Japanese/Kawaii stationary

*Cult Horror/Sci-Fi

*Retro-Futurism (cut-outs/photos)

*Anything Dexter related (tv show)

*Fun Paperclips/clamps for my scrap journals

*Synthesizers/Machine related photos/art/infographs

*Anything Pee-Wee Herman

*All things Kawaii

*Guitar Plectrums

*Badges/pins relating to any of the above

I also have a 7-year-old Son who LOVES all things Marvel, especially Spiderman and a 3-year-old Daughter who LOVES Pompompurin and anything cute.

I'd always appreciate any little items for the children


I am new-ish to Swap-Bot, but can promise I will always send my swaps and make sure they fulfil the requirement spec and are sent on time. Each and every swap will be sent with love and care. If, for any reason, your swap does not arrive, please message me before giving me a rating lower than 5 and I will do my best to resolve the matter. In addition, I pledge to rate... always! :)

Comment: What a wonderful swap you send me! <3 Congrats for you baby, I hope all will go smooth for you! Don't worry about the UK stuff, Dr Who is already British enough, haha ^^ The socks are perfect! Take care!
Comment: Thank you very much Zara for your nice things, they had a very long trip and arrived on the opposite side of the earth! Very nice envelope!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely assortment of items for this swap. I especially love the mermaid note/paper sticky pads. I was in disbelief when I saw the recipe you sent me. Just the other day I was telling my son I have always wanted to try making gnocchi and here you sent me a recipe. Plus it looks like a great recipe. I can’t wait to try it! I really enjoyed going through all the items. Thank you darling!
Comment: Thanks a lot for the comments you made on Instagram:)
