About Me

I love cute things. I also love mail.

I'm a 34 year old girl who currently lives in Portland Oregon with her husband and too many animals.

I work for a sock company called Sock it to Me. I used to run the online kawaii store Phoophie but it went out of business. Because of that I have a lot of left over kawaii stuff.

Things I like: my cats, my dog, cute things, vintage postcards, vintage photos, children's books from the 50's-70's, squirrels, turtles, octopi, manatees, hippos, sloths, letter sets, Kurt Halsey, hot pink, photography, reading, video games, photobooths, robots, traveling, typography.

Kawaii I like: Q-Lia, Kamio, San-X, Crux, Cram Cream. I haven't purchased any Kawaii for myself within the last two years so anything new I probably don't have.

Kawaii I dislike: Sanrio, Morning Glory and other things like it. Diddle is not kawaii.

And I like coffee:

Things I dislike or do not wish to receive:

~ Sanrio, unless it's Made in Japan import or not pastel. If you can only get Sanrio and you have me for a swap please just leave a note with your package about it. It's not that big of a deal. :)

~ Morning Glory

~ I have a phobia of food in the mail and other items that can spill, spoil, or get gross.

~ Cigarette smoke smell. This is a REAL dislike.

~ Dirty items in general.

~ Diddl

~ Disney

~ McDonalds toys

~ Religious items

~ Anything with real puppies, babies, American cartoons, cows, chickens, snakes, or lame sayings on it.

~ Lotion and lip gloss.

~ Earrings unless they are for 00 plugs.

~ Dollar store or discount scrapbook items.

~ I do not like a lot of pastels or items that for lack of a better term are just sort of old lady like.

Rating and Stuff

I rate every package that I receive so if you have not received a rating and you feel like I should have gotten the swap by then, please send me a message.

I'm looking to do more private swaps if anyone is interested. :)


Comment: This couldn't have come at a better time! Quick story...I was going to do the laundry, and got locked out of my house! No keys, no phone, no appropriate clothes lol. Anyway your package came, so I totally had something to pass the time until my husband came home from work :) Thanks so much! I loved everything. The mag was awesome and I had a fun time trying to make out some of the words with the parts of the alphabet I know. Fantastic thanks xoxoxo
ChelseaLake rated for Kawaii Penpal Letter Swap! on Jul 18, 2011
Comment: Amber! I loved your letter! I really really loved the picture you send of your doggie! I love getting photos. I'm a total TOTAL dog person, and it tends to shock me also when people just GIVE their pets away. My baby - ahem - puppy was given to us. Best gift ever. Also, thank you so much for all of the GOODIES! I opened the envie and I'm like WHOA! I'd like to keep writing - I'm in desperate need of some penpallage! (is that a thing?) <3
Response: Hey! I'm so happy you liked my letter. I would love to keep writing. :)
Comment: Thanks for my first ever Kawaii swap pack. I love it.

Thank you so much for all the goodies Amber! It really made my day much brighter! :) ((I'll try to post pictures if my camera would stop having a tantrum!))

Comment: WOW! wowowow! First off, I love the adorable little matchbox- so cute! I love the way you made it, the design, the lovely little fillers, and how you packaged it in the clear case you also decorated. So super cool. And, of course, the socks just put me over the moon- they are sooo perfect, I can't wait to wear them tomorrow! Thank you sooo very much. Your package really brightened what so far has been a rather blah couple of months. Tons of appreciation coming your way...<3

Comment: i just got your package in the mail and i love the matchbox you made me! it's sort of bittersweet, as i love it so much, yet it makes me want to crawl under a rock when i think of the matchbox i sent you. i'm embarrassed that mine wasn't sooooo much better! :'( anyway, i really love the matchbox! it was so sweet how you put it in that other kawaii container! and the lucky stars-yay! i love them! i also lovelovelove the extras: the gloomy bear charm, the sabo kappa magnets! (ugh! once again, you put my own skills to shame!), and the sabo kappa address labels-i'm in heaven! i hope we can swap again sometime and next time i'll try not to be so lame :P xoxoxo

What do I send a girl who has her own Kawaii shop!? (one of my favs btw) I don't want to send you something you already have, do you have any specific kawaii wish items? Let me know! I'll stop by Daiso soon, hopefully! :)
