About Me


May 28th - June 30th 2018 I will be road-tripping around Eastern Europe! I'm incredibly excited, and you bet I'm going to be picking up souvenirs like crazy 😛

HOWEVER - THIS MEANS THAT ANY SWAPS THAT ARRIVE DURING THAT TIME, I WON'T BE ABLE TO RATE. I haven't joined any new swaps so I should be getting all of my swap mail in this week to rate in time for me to leave, but if it doesn't arrive before I leave I will not be rating until July 1st at the earliest

This also goes for swaps that I've sent. I sent them all with the correct amount of postage if they were lettermail, or I sent them from the post office itself so they should arrive safely, however, mail sometimes gets lost or mishandled (especially with PC swaps...) and I won't be able to resend until July 5th at the earliest (since if I had to resend, I would have to rewrite and make the letter :( )


If I'm joining a swap that means I have the time to do it, so if you don’t get your letter/package from me, PLEASE MESSAGE ME FIRST before rating and I will make plans to resend/send compensation. I will try and message you first to check up on the mail I’ve sent, but due to the nature of my work (12-18 hours a day, 5-6 days a week) I don’t always have the time afterwards to keep track of that kind of thing, so please bear that in mind.


Hi there! My name is Selena, and I'm a independent filmmaker and professional camera assistant in the film industry. On my time off (when I have it haha) I am obsessed with getting back into my hobbies, travelling, camping, roadtripping, anything that will get me out into the world!

I'm a lover of films, books, shows, theatre, video games, board games, journalling, letter writing, collage art, scrapbooking, and writing amongst other things!

Favorite Books

I really need to take a good look at my library and make a list of books that I have, but I find that I enjoy most well written books that I can learn something from that isn't discriminatory towards any group or preaching a religion. However, 9 times out of 10 I will choose a stand-alone book over a series, I need an ending that is within reach! Series that go on forever bother me because no matter what I need the security of a conclusion. I will not say no to a series, but I am more weary of them (especially if they go over a trilogy and the series isn't completely out yet!)

Guilty loves? Mystery/Crime/Thriller. Commitment loves? Sci-Fi/Fantasy. Slowly getting into? Non-Fiction life stories and/or city tales. Picky but I love the format? Graphic Novels! My ultimate I-don't-care-I'll-enjoy-it-somehow? INTERACTIVE BOOKS!

You can also check out my goodreads account for my recent reads! I haven't put up my entire collection on there yet though.

Anything really that you create that shows off who you are and what you like! I love getting to know people through what they create and the art they put out into the world ♥

My No-No's

Don't have many! I don't have any allergies, and there isn't much that I wouldn't appreciate. However, I must state that I will not accept anything that:

  • is discriminatory against a group or a person based on race/sex/orientation/religion/diet.
  • is preaching any religion
  • is graphic pornography. Artistic nudity is OK.

I also have some things that I won't necessarily be bothered if I get, but I would just prefer not to since I won't put them to any use (they'll get given away/donated)

  • Earrings or jewellery in general that isn't necklaces, my ears aren't pierced and I don't wear rings / bracelets.
  • 3D/Puffy stickers
  • Loose Glitter
  • Sports things/theme
  • Wedding stuff/theme
  • Baby stuff/theme

bellanonna rated for Imaginary Vacation Postcard Swap on Mar 25, 2018
Comment: Thanks Selena for the beautiful PC fro. Greece!! I understand your fondness for Santorini. Who would not want to visit that amazing place?!!
Comment: I thoroughly enjoyed your notes and the creative way you put everything on paper. Thank you so much, Selena! I did look everything up on the internet and the series Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie seems quite interesting. I think because I liked all those kinds of stories when I was young; Nancy Drew, The Bobbsey Twins, etc. And thank you for 3 bookmarks! ♥
Response: ♥ happy that you liked it a lot! No worries :) I love the series, hope you enjoy it just as much!

shirleyinCA rated for PH: Pick & Choose #2 on Mar 2, 2018
Comment: Thank you so much for wonderful b&w postcards - they are unique and delightful; thanks too for sending 2 wonderful extras, and stickers, plus going to the effort and expense of sending priority mail. You are a very caring,responsible and generous swapper! You will have so much fun at Disney World - my favorite thing was World Showcase in Epcot - all the great food and cultures. But I have heard lately that everyone's favorite is now Pandora -- fantastic at night! I am not good at being a penal but I am sure you will find those who are here on swap-bot!
Response: I’m glad that they got to you safely and that you like them :) Thank you for the wonderful rating and the kind words!
