About Me

Last updated: Jan 5, 2017 note I always send my end of the swaps. I try my very best to stay on time, but life happens and you'll be sure to receive a message from me if I have to send late. If you still haven't received, please contact me before leaving ratings. I care about and take pride in all my feedbacks received so far. Also When you send to me, please label which swap the package/letter/postcard is for, otherwise I won't leave rating for you and may mistakenly leave you a poor rating. Thanks :)

I moved to Colorado from Michigan, United States late 2016. I enjoy swapping with people from anywhere in the world. I've been dealing and swapping online since 2000.

I'm more of the cappuccino type person (the powder kind....without the expresso) rather than the real coffee person. I like green tea and lemon ice tea as well as hot chocolate. I'm not a big alcohol drinker and a non-smoker. I only drink alcohol on special occasions or sparingly.

I like snow, rain and thunderstorms. I would turn off the radio just to hear the rain hit against the windshield of my car. I would rather be in the cold than in hot weather.

I enjoy traveling- whether within the United States (that's where I live) as well as abroad. I am originally from Hong Kong and then moved to the US when I was about 9 years old. One of my goals in life is to visit all 50 states and all 7 continents.

I am a garage sale addict. For some reason, I just love going to these things. I guess it's for the thrill of not knowing what to find there and getting useful things for a fraction of the cost at a store. I also like to the bargaining part too.

Favorite Music

Fall Out Boy, Green Day, All American Rejects, My Chemical Romance, All Time Low, Boys Like Girls, etc. Anything really besides operas and rap.

Favorite Movies

Ever After, The Avengers, Hunger Games. I also like the fairy tale/romantic sappy love stories.

Favorite Television

Reign, Beauty and Beast, Motive, Simpsons, Family Guy, Shark Tank, Shipping War, Castle, Grimm, Minority Report, Brooklyn 99, The Muppets, Once Upon a Time, Blindspot, and Judge Judy.

Favorite Crafts

I don't have a particular favorite, I like things that are useful and unique. I like modern designs...those Victorian designs are far too complicated for me. Plain and simple is the key. My favorite color is purple.

I am into scrapbook supplies and such for greeting card making--paper punches of different shapes (other than circle, star, or heart), papers, stamps, inkpads, etc. to create my own paper art/cards/postcards. I usually make my own postcards, so any unique scrapbook papers that I can use for background, all texture/color is welcome. I also LOVE embellishments and confetti too! I would love to try out different colored embossing powder as heat embossing is another hobby of mine. I already have black, silver, gold...so looking for other unique colors.

I like Sanrio and San-x characters. I collect their stationary and I also sell their stationary. I don't really have a favorite character, I like them all. I think they're all so cute!

I can always use ideas for handmade cards as well for holidays such as Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Baby showers (boy or girl), Weddings, etc.

Other little things about me..

Other things I do, I like to collect postage stamps- unique ones within the US and especially from outside of the US too. I love stamps from outside of US from anywhere from Canada to China.

While I'm on that note, I also collect postcards too from anywhere. I like tourisy type postcards so that it gives me a taste of what it's like there...perhaps some day I'll make it one of my destinations.

I LOVE socks--I prefer colored/patterned ones. However, I don't like toesocks. I wear US women size 8 (average) socks/shoes. I can never have enough socks.

I also like milk chocolate with hazelnuts. (Ferro Rocher = heaven!!)


I like to cook- I would love to try out a new recipe that I can make and serve in 30-60 minutes and calls for simple/easy to get ingredients.

Things I like include beef, chicken, spaghetti (with meatballs otherwise it's not spaghetti to me), fettuccine with alfredo sauce, garlic bread, sushi (w/o the raw meats), omelette, etc.

I've only made one casserole in my life, but it was pretty good....I'd love to try more different' variety.

My next goal is to figure out how to make good flank steak or london broil steak! Send good recipe my way :)

something new I'm trying

I'm always up for trying new easy recipe that includes simple ingredients and less than 60 minutes to prepare/cook/EAT!!!

I am still trying to master the art of heat embossing ....if you have different colored embossing powder (other than black)- I'd be grateful if you send me some for me to try out . If you're good at embossing, I'd love to see what you created.

Cake decorating!! I took a one day crash course on cupcake decorating and had a blast. Send me pictures of your creations!

wish list...

  • unique paper punches
  • handmade greeting cards
  • postage stamps for my collection
  • postcards to add to my collection
  • rubber stamps for greeting cards / projects
  • recipes for me to try out
  • embossing powder other than black, silver, gold
  • absolutely delicious meatloaf recipes! (or any other easy to make entrees)

Please don't send...

  • anything that has had contact with any pets or smoke!!
  • things you wouldn't want to receive yourself
  • stationary / pens
  • anything other than milk chocolate...ex. no dark chocolate or white chocolate please *teacher stickers (I have enough myself)

Did you receive a hand made card made of green punched snowflakes in the shape of a wreath? I mailed yours and one to the Netherlands the same day and just received her rating. I will resend if there has been a problem. I am sure I put from the homemade Christmas card swap on it. Let me know. Janitha aka stampingranny
