About Me

4/13/16 update! I'm currently almost 4 months pregnant! We have been trying for 2 years to add to our family and we have been finally blessed. The time off has allowed me to start swapping again, slowly.

12/2014 - Sophie Pearl ♥

7/26/2014

Sophie's first time at Disneyland! ♥

I will only be doing regional USA swaps, due to the increase in postage. I sent a pack that weighed 1.2oz internationally and it cost a little under $7.00. To ensure I can continue to swap monthly as a hobby, I have to find the strength to resist international swaps.

I'm from Southern California. Been with my hubby Jonathan for 14 years now (our anniversary is (11/17/2000) We were blessed with our first Child, Sophie Pearl. She is our little water dragon!

I collect Blythe dolls, Pullip Dolls, and Kawaii items.

I'm very easy to please, I just don't like people who don't follow rules of the swap. If the swap says New items, please send me new items, another example if the swap says sender's choice, i agreed to those terms, you should too!

I work full time in commercial real estate that asks for more of my time, than my family. When I come home it's my time to be a fulltime Mommy to my little girl. I sleep when she sleeps, so if that means she wakes up at 3am, I am up at 3am, then i have to get to work by 7 am and start the same routine over.

I do my best, I don't flake and I don't cheapen out on my swaps. I give my swappers the best. I reach for that heart.

I have a pretty good kawaii collection. I have to say I am proud of it! I also collect dolls such has blythes and pullips. I used to collect pullips more but moved towards blythes. I guess I'm always looking for something new to keep me occupied!

I am a sucker for cute packaging. It's true, throw a cutie pie on the box, and before I know, I've purchased 10 of those items I have no need for...

Ten things about me:

1 - I'm Left Handed. But use my right hand for using the scissors, can opener and mouse. I had to conform; there were no lefties in my family and in my school/class when i was growing up. I don't mind though, because I can write and use the mouse at the same time! Alright! multi-tasking!

2 - I love Scissors

3 - I'm a nice person, to the point where people think I have bad intensions, which makes me sad, because i don't.

4 - I love Coke (the soda)!.

5 - I started my Smash book (smashing) 11/2013

6 - I love purses. When I go out, I look at everyone's purses, women or men. I am often tempted to go and ask them where they got it and what brand. I don't care if it's lower brand or high, I just love purses! Heck, Sanrio makes super cute purses from time to time. Case and point (see pic below, this is my purse and wallet).

7 - I spend a lot of money on my android games (Tiny Farm and Summoners War).

8 - I love to Sing.

9 - I have only a few friends in my life, less than five who know me. I care, a whole lot. And when I get hurt I cry, a whole lot. I take things to heart. So it's rare for someone to come back after they have hurt me.

10 - I love crafts, I try :)

I love making match boxes when I have the time. I love themed boxes, such as this Kawaii one I made a while back!

Wishlist other than KAWAII -

I normally don't wish for much, I'm very easy to please but a midori traveler's notebook is a true wish.

♥Running Short of Addy labels and no ink in my printer, help?

I enjoy reading mystery or scary novels, fiction is my cup of tea.

I rarely watch TV, but i am trying to watch House of Cards. Barely on the first season episode 4.

♠Dislikes♠

•CANDY (I do not eat them at all) I realized this after joining a candy swap lol!

•Fake imitation anything

•Herbal Teas

•Religious Items (I will not give hearts if I receive anything religious) I just don't like throwing those things away...no matter what religion, it just feels like a bad omen when I do. I'm a pack rat and do not want to pack these things away. My family and I are not religious. My mother is Buddhist, so i will partake to show her respect, but other than that...I do not practice any religion.

•Dirty or used items

•"Boy" themed items except Shinkansen

•Disney (except Minnie Mouse, Sophie LOVES Minnie Mouse)

I add extra postage or walk to the post office to make sure that it gets postmarked and weight checked.

Public Swaps~ A Vent/Rant

I host one public swap. I take my time and I filter through each participant. I no longer join public swaps unless they are hosted by reputable host.

It seems that lately I've read that unexperienced hosts allow prior "offenders" (however way you want to define this is up to you) to slip through the cracks. I will not tolerate being flaked on. I've join my share of swaps and have been fortunate enough to be flaked on only a few times. And as you can see below there was one that really sucked, 100 4x6 kawaii memo sheets. That was not cool.

I will make sure I protect myself because someone else might not do so. I have also left many of the groups I used to be in. Not because of the founders, but because I want to grow within a group and stay put, not all groups have that and you get lost within the sea of everyone. The groups I am in now, have the best people and I am thankful for them.

Thank you for Rating!
