There are instances when mail may be lost or delayed, from my experience letters/packages arrive within 2-3 weeks from the day I sent it out. If the time has elapsed please do message me and I will resend.
Although I know I should keep track of swaps, I have great faith in the postal system so I am really saddened and disappointed when things don't go as planned.
I will ALWAYS send the swap items before the swap date and few instances where I send on the actual day itself, please do inform if the item has not yet arrived and I will definitely resend.
Currently residing in Singapore. I work as an engineer but in my spare time I love to read, practice calligraphy or handlettering. I am quite active in Instagram and Pinterest (just look for heyjayel).
When I have more time for myself I like to make my own art journals, sew and learn crochet. I am learning how to take nice photos as well.
I am also interested in Japanese and Korean pop culture. I am currently studying Korean at my own pace by watching variety shows.
