I'm not new to swaps, pen pals, crafts, or art. I'm a mixed media artist and also create jewelry that I sell on Etsy. I'm an avid art journaler, and I love making all kinds of things with my hands.
LOW SCORES ON MY PROFILE Yes, I am aware of my 1's. I'm trying to get back into swapping after some time away after a tragic apartment fire that deeply affected my life, and had an effect on my swapping. I'm trying to move forward and address past projects as I can, though it's difficult as they are years old, do one on one swaps with folks who are willing and join any swaps that will take a chance on me. I am invested in earning everyone's trust back.
THINGS I LOVE
Color: I love bright colors! I love pinks, purples, and greens the most, but I also love orange, yellow, and red. Especially burnt orange.
Paper: I love fancy and interesting papers and often use scraps in my work. No scrap of paper is too small as long as it's intriguing or pretty, so feel free to use me for recycling. I get inspiration by going through all my papers until something strikes!
Tea: I love almost all kinds of tea but am most partial to black teas and white teas. The only thing I really DISLIKE is orange or lemon flavored teas. Excited for some tea swaps. :)
Kawaii: I adore the kawaii aesthetic and am most interested in stationery products. Letter sets, memo pads and sheets, stickers, sticker flakes, etc. My tastes are diverse and as long as it's from a known kawaii brand, I wouldn't turn my nose up at it. Some favorites are fairy tale characters, cute food, food with faces, cute hamburgers, woodland creatures, anything with a bizarre or funny saying on it is a plus. I love Rilakkuma, Sentimental Circus, Hello Kitty (actual Sanrio only) Little Twin Stars, My Meldy, Kuromi, and many more that elude me now!
Notebooks and journal's: Seriously, it's an addiction. Especially miniature ones! Actually, add anything in miniature to my list.
Makeup: I'm obsessed!!! Especially with eyeliner, eye shadow, and nail polish. I love bright colors and glitter. I also love lip balm, Lip Smackers, Burt's Bees, and Badger are among my fave brands. Urban Decay is my favorite make up brand but I love trying new things as well!
Tape! Tape, tape, and more cute tape. I love washi and deco tape.
