Last updated: Oct 3, 12 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'm 29f from Michigan, United States. 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 rain and thunderstorms. I would turn off the radio just to hear the rain hit against the windshield of my car. I also like snow. 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 almost 9 years old. My recent adventure was a roadtrip to the Shenandoah Valley area in Virginia where I went on my first hot air balloon ride. Other places I've been to include West Palm Beach, FL, NE part of US Maine, Toronto, Canada, New York, Massachusetts, Vegas, Los Angeles, Hilton Head Island, SC.
I have a bachelors of science degree in chemistry. I was one of two females to graduate in my year in chemistry at a large public university. (There were only 11 of us!) I then went on to professional school to become a dentist. I was fortunate enough to find me a job in Michigan- the state with the highest unemployment rate. My first real job!!
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.
A recent challenge accomplished through garage sales is to collect all the books in the Harry Potter series (soft cover). I also like chick lits...as well as funny mindless reads.
Fall Out Boy, Green Day, All American Rejects, My Chemical Romance, All Time Low, Boys Like Girls, etc. Anything really besides operas and rap.
Ever After, The Avengers, Hunger Games. I also like the fairy tale/romantic sappy love stories.
Community, Two and a half Men, Simpsons, Family Guy, Shark Tank, Shipping War, Castle, Grimm, and Judge Judy.
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 a new 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!
Things I'd love to try....I see these inchies, ATC, and matchbox swaps ...I don't want to join one just to ruin it for the other person as I've never made these before...if you'd like to introduce me to these, I'd really appreciate it :) so I know where I can start.
I can always use ideas for handmade cards as well for holidays such as Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, etc.
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), facchini 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 :)
I'm always up for trying new easy recipe that includes simple ingredients and less than 60 minutes to prepare/cook/EAT!!!
I just discovered the art of heat embossing and hope to try it out....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.
I also want to try ATC and Brads and never made one.
Cake decorating!! I took a one day crash course on cupcake decorating and had a blast. Send me pictures of your creations!
