...Me...

Hi hi. My name is Trinket here on Swap-bot. Though to everyone who knows me better, I am Steff. Im a 35 year old self employed illustrator from a small place called Norwich in England. What that means is that for most of my time, i live in a small craft lair building plushies and drawing interesting pictures. I am never far from my Mac even if I am not always about on Swap-bot. I'd like to sit in the chat room more often though. I am an avid World of warcraft player (horde all the way!) When I aren't busying myself with plushies, drawing or warcraft, I am often Roleplaying with my partner. I love my Live Action Roleplay, which is effectively a bit like Lord of the Rings in the woods with fake weapons, where we make up adventures of our own and are all in fantasy costume.

Here on swap-bot I get stuck in to a number of different group swaps. Though these days I do shy from public swaps, occasionally they do tickle my fancy. I'm very much into crafting ATCs and most of the swaps I join now tend to be ATC themed ones.

Im a big mixture of interests from my roleplaying to simple things ATCs and Inchies.

My Favorite Colour: Teal and Purple

Some themes I like in swaps: Happy Mail, Foxes, Forests, Autumn leafs, Pokemon, Kawaii, Cats, Japan, Stars, Dreams, The sky at night, Strawberries, Succulents, Plants, leaves.


Recently I have been interested in wool spinning and dyeing and that takes up a good deal of my none work time. I find the idea of pocket letters facinating but my main focus for mail art will always be small journals, ATC's, Inchies, hidden pockets and other surprises.
Things I personally would love to keep.

...Wishes...

Its hard to say wishes, without it sounding like a bit of a I want this and this and this kind of thing, so I apologize but these are the sorts of things I like to swap and like to see in my mail if your scouting here on my profile for ideas and we are partners. Id like to think of this wish list as more of a guide really than things I insist. You'd be surprised how much isnt listed here that would still bring a smile to my face.

Of course I am always happy for private swaps for specific things that I have mentioned here too, So please please give me a prod if you would like a private swap.


Not too many of my likes have changed over the years, I am a massive fan of Roleplaying and fantasy story telling. Celtic myths and fantasy dark forests are often themes in art objects I covet the most.

I am a huge Japan nerd. Having recently begun collecting Gacha eggs and the prizes within, Re-ment minis and Plush. They seem to occupy my whole house right now. Along with a dragons horde of Sanrio and other cute Japan Japan stationary items.

I am a massive Pokemon collector also - I tend to adopt abandoned Pokemon merch. from thrift stores and have gathered together quite a stash of cards and mini figures.

  • My favorite Pokemon are: Vaporeon, Bulbasaur, Pikachu, Pumpkaboo, Pidgey.

Stickers and Washi tapes and Kawaii paper Emphemera.

  • I am a fan of food releated Kawaii goodies.

  • I love Cats, PomPurin, Rilakkuma, Yeasty Ken, Card Captor Sakura among many others.

  • Letter Sets will always have a home with me as I use them often to send out penpal letters and swaps here.

  • I prefer Large memo's to small ones. But I have a growing collection of both.

I also like Foxes and Cats. These are proberbly my favorite animals and having fox/cat themed things will always make me happy. things like stationary, softies, stickers etc.

I make and collect ATC's. I reckon 90% of the swaps I host and sign up for are ATC swaps.
I have been making them since I was 14 and first started swapping on a site called Nervousness.org which as far as I can tell no longer exists.
I also make and collect mini zines (those are the ones you make out of a single sheet of A4 and fold to make into a small booklet.


Things I am always looking for and will always find a home with me.

  • ATCs
  • Inchies, Chunky Pages, Mini zines,
  • Zines
  • Starbucks Gift Cards (no money on them).
  • Pokemon anything, I am a huge fan.
  • Old trading cards (Pokemon etc)
  • Fantasy/Celtic/Dark forest themed things.
  • Gachaphon Eggs and their contents
  • Stickers, Washi Tape and Kawaii things.
  • Kawaii Letter sets are always welcome.
  • Photo ATC's with a small description about the photo on the back, because knowing the story is super cool.

...Dislikes...

I hate to mention things disliked. I certainly wouldn't call them hates.

  • Im not a massive drinker of hot drinks, infact I prefer not to drink them. So tea etc. are probably better saved for someone who would super appreciate them instead.

  • I like Swapping Kawaii things but would prefer not to recieve: Gudetama, Diddle, Winnie the Pooh & Snoopy stuff.

  • Damaged or torn items, the mail can crumple things but there is no excuse for something that is broken being posted as part of an Emphemera swap.

Response: I hope you liked them, they were both really cool moments to have taken and I do feel like it was fun sending them out writing the story of the photo on the back, this was my first photo swap like it but it was really cool.

Comment: Steph!! THANK YOU SO SO SO MUCH! I absolutely loved the Happy Mail you sent me. Everything is gorgeous; the stickers, the writing paper, the flower encyclopedia pages and especially your paintings. Thank you so much for sharing you art with me! It really made my day! When I showed the one of the hedgehog to my partner, he immediately said he wanted to put it up in a frame! It's awesome. Again, thank you! I wish I could give hundred hearts!!!

Comment: A quick story for those who read comments: After waiting for Steph's mail for 2 months, I thought the package was lost.. I informed Steph that this was the case and she kindly offered to resend. The day after Steph informed me that she sent me a replacement package, her original mail arrived! What a bittersweet coincidence :o Her lovely mail arrived today and it made my day! I can’t wait to have Steph as a partner on Swapbot again. Thank you so much for this package Steph :) please check your inbox, I sent you a message about me sending you some mail to make up for your unnecessary resend :)
Response: Oh no! this is where you get both my letters and find my thoughts on Kawaii are some sort of chaotic whirly wind where I can never write the same letter two days in a row. Which reminds me - I also forgot to include some PomPurin notelets in your resend. ahhhh! the worst.

Thank you for the wonderful assortment of used postal stamps. I don't have any ones that look like these so I am so excited to have so many. You are so generous. They are beautiful. Thank you so much. The panda stationary you used - super cute!
