About Me

Crafter. Scrapbooker. Graphic Designer. Urban sketcher. Mum to twins (๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ). Dabbles in gardening. Love to travel and discover new places and meet new friends.

Currently live in Shanghai.

Favorite Music

Grew up with the 80s music. Love various genres but favourites are mostly pop music, some oldies, and jazz.

Favorite Books

I read a variety of books esp love a good mystery/thriller, crafting and some romance. My favourite authors are Patricia Cromwell, Elizabeth George and Mary Higgins Clark.

Favorite Crafts

Enjoy scrapbooking as I get a chance to play with paper and a different medium which is different from my work.

I love to sew, crochet, and knit when I get the chance. I enjoy seeing the finished stuff being used or worn.

I'm still learning to do a bit of embroidery.

I use watercolour a lot in paintings. I enjoy art journaling as my escape.

Snail Mail

LOVE snail mail. Growing up, I used to have a lot of penpals and kind of missed that so trying to start again.

I'm easy to please and wouldn't mind receiving any postcard with stamps and even with a short written message. Please no free/advertisement postcards.

I LOVE swapping...

ATCs, inkbox cards, Rolodex cards/Memorydex, Zines, handmade tags, postcards, tea, and other handmade art.

NOTE: I spend a lot of time thinking about what I send to my partners and also invest in time making them. My only request is that I also hope to receive something worth saving.

Please NO chocolates or candies because sometimes mail takes a while. I wouldn't mind tea as it gives me a chance to try tea from other places.

IMPORTANT REQUEST

I'M A RESPONSIBLE SWAPPER. IF I SIGN UP FOR A SWAP, THAT MEANS I WILL SEND IT ON TIME. HOWEVER, AS I DO NOT HAVE CONTROL OVER MAIL DELIVERY TIMES, I HOPE YOU WILL CONSIDER DELAYING THE RATING AND NOT INSTANTLY GIVE ME A "1" JUST BECAUSE MAIL HAS NOT ARRIVED. SOME MAIL TAKES A WEEK, SOME EVEN 2 MONTHS. SO PLEASE UNDERSTAND.
