(I do want to point out that my mail gets received at my parents' house, however, and not at my apartment, because theirs is a more secure mail place. However, I do usually get to their house at least once a week, so I will rate at the MOST within a week of the package having been delivered. I promise!)

knitting. i'm kind of boring with that - that's really my only craft. but i do it obsessively. seriously. (www.sweetpotatoknits.com)
i don't have any allergies (except to penicillin, but i don't think anyone is going to be sending me that!).
i love most sweet things, save for black licorice and coconut and pineapple. oh, and white chocolate.
things i love to receive: sock yarn. stickers. candy. sweets of any kind. soaps. kneesocks. pouches. totes or handbags. anything with adorable characters (think: Japanese creations - could be fruit with a cute face on it, i don't care! just as long as it looks sweet). flavored teas & coffees. caffeine in almost any form, really. really good pens (gel, ballpoint, whatever). lip gloss (clear or with only faint color - sparkles are fine!). quality nail polish. salty snacks. funky or cute kitchen/baking items. mint gum. simple and/or bold jewelry & earrings (especially fun stud earrings - if they are sterling silver or stainless steel, because i react badly to other metals in my ears...oh, and no gold! i'm a silver girl).
i'm not such a big fan of receiving: journals (i've got zillions of them). stationery/cards (ditto). post-it notes & notepads (ditto again!). books, unless they are on my Amazon wishlist above (i am working on my own to-read list that is endless!). picture frames. hand soaps (but i do like bars of lovely-smelling body soap!). lotions or bath products (besides bars of body soap). makeup (i'm loyal to the products i already use!). kid cartoons (Disney, Looney Toons, etc.) - unless they are Japanese or in that cute vein! ATCs. things that aren't useful - i don't like clutter, and i don't really like knickknacks (i want an item to have a useful purpose - i do enjoy something that's fun to look at! but i also want it to DO something, hehe). :)
i'll keep adding to this as i think of things that you ought to know - but do know that i wouldn't hold it against anyone if they sent me something i didn't necessarily like! the surprise is all the fun of swapping! :)
