UPDATES

This is Cali, my new tabby kitty...or should I say, cat. She's 4 years old and official baby of the house.

My profile might be a bit long, but don't let it's size discourage you from sending anything that isn't listed; experiencing new things is the reason I joined Swapbot.

I live in Perú (South America), where you can find some of the best food in the world, some of the most colorful festivals, and some of the worst driving.

I'm a child at heart (even though I am 37); creative and easily distracted(which can be explained by my ADHD).

I am open to other religions and ways of thinking.; nonetheless, I don´t like to be forced into a belief system. I am addicted to baking anything from cakes, cookies, and anything new or foreign.

SWAP PLEDGE

  • I will always rate a swap as soon as possible. If I feel you deserve a 1, I will mail you beforehand to talk things out.

  • I send out swaps before or on the send date. If I am to be late for a swap, I'll PM you, promise!

  • If you didn´t receive a package from me, please message me before rating me.

--------

I have a tendency to read anything and everything; from cereal boxes to novels. I recently discovered the magic of kindle. I used to read paper, but I've happily made the jump to tech.

Favorite books Fantasy (Haruki Murakami, Terry Goodkind,George R. Martin, Neil Gaiman, etc.), fiction, comic books (Fantastic Four, , Superman, Flash.) and mangas (anything Hayao Miyazaki, Naruto).

I get lots of ideas from graphic design magazines, photos, nature magazines, papercrafting mags, and cooking magazines.

TV shows I watch Big Bang Theory,Grey's Anatomy,How I met Your Mother, Modern Family, MasterChef, The Haunting of..., MLP Friendship is Magic, Project Runway, Tattoo Masters, Vikings, Top Chef.

Movies Frozen, Lion King, Billy Eliot, How to Train your Dragon, Lilo and Stitch

Anime My favorites Naruto, Natsume Yujinchou, Ranma 1/2, Sailor Moon, , Deathnote, and a few others. P.S Hayao Miyazaki rules!

Anime Movies My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, Wolf Children,

-------

I've always been into PAPER CRAFTS (origami,note cards, bookmarks, envelopes, mailart). I love making ATCs.

I'm starting a scrapbook for my pet cat and wow, there are so many techniques to learn!

Craft materials I'll always need:

  • Papers with gold/silver details, textured papers, patterned,rice patter, origami. Any and all paper is welcome.
  • Pens: sakura gel, metallic, pens/markers for dark surfaces.
  • Stickers For scrapbooking and cheap ones to decorate my packages.
  • Stamps/Stamped images Kawaii, birds, animals, vintage, nature..anything except childish/kids stamps really.
  • Other: Felt, Empty Altoid tins,Rub-Ons, markers for scrapbooking.

Comment: I LOVE EVERYTHING. My son Arin can also enjoy the treats since there easy to eat. He loved the bon bon and the frog. Arin can have the atomic wheat for breakfast. It was like Christmas. I love how you wrap everything up. This has been the best swap I got this year and last year. You are truly wonderful. True stuff seem to change so much from our childhood to this day and age sadly. I feel it’s better in our childhood more. Even McDonald’s chicken dougets sauces changed so much :(. My favourite from what you sent is Chaplin the cookies are super good. I find South America chocolate is less sweet then in North America. It’s a like/dislike thing but helps for not gulping it all down lol. I also like sublime, milo, lentejas, kiwi/ocos, princess. Your right it would be better with the peanut butter cream. I always wanted to try milo and now I can. Thank you for everything.
Response: <3 You're very welcome. I love it when I make my partner happy. :)

Comment: Thank you for this wonderful washi-mini-pocket-letter! I love the idea to create a background with different tapes that fit together. And I thought "Aaaawwww..... Washi with glitter looks so amazing! Wish I had something like that, too..." Before I realized that you made the glitter details yourself! This is awesome! Sorry, but I have to steal this idea... It is just too good! :D And thank you so much for the goodies and extras! I love the papers and all the washi! My favourits are those with the french dachshund and with the polar bears... :) Thank you so, so much!!!!
Response: I'm so glad you liked them! I had lots of fun with the swap - and that washi tape theme did push me to think outside the box. I'm super happy you loved everything. :D
