I love travelling and watch more TV shows than I should probably have the time for. I read less than I'd like but am constantly looking for recommendations. I'm big on food - cooking, baking, restaurants, scouring recipes on Pinterest.
I'm from Sweden, but studying in England, and just came back from an exchange year in the US.
I also want to make a quick note: anything that you've put thought into is going to make me thrilled! I love to get a small note from the sender, with either a quick message from them or a note about what they've sent and why. It makes it all the more interesting and makes me feel more connected with you lovely people of Swap-bot :D
Aqua, lime, anything in between. Deep reds, raspberry, burgundy.
I'm growing increasingly fond of neon colours in happy mail crafting.
Supernatural, Teen Wolf, Sherlock, Castle, Elementary, Doctor Who, Marvel's Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D., Arrow
I also watch a long list of crime shows.
If anyone feels like talking about any of the above - count me in!
I enjoy most anything paper related - vintage ephemera, air mail themed stationary, anything with a travel theme will go over very well. I also enjoy washi tape, fun envelopes of various sizes, stickers, bakers twine, anything with snarky text on it, anything made out of vellum.
I'm a big fan of happy mail, so things that can be used for that - like nice pens, address labels or stuff for wax seals - are also a hit. I'm more and more using stamps, and I want to get into making my own rubber stamps. I've been wanting a date stamp for a long time now, but it's hard to get a hold of one that doesn't cost a fortune around here.
I'm also making my own calendar, so things I can use to decorate that are also very welcome - for example fun post-it notes and unusually coloured highlighters.
I'm also starting out with embroidery, and for that I prefer pastel colours. Light blues, greens and mints and aquas, light pink and soft raspberry hues.
Overall, I'm not a fan of the colour purple or religious items.
Pretty much everything in the crafty section is also valid here! I'm easy to please that way ;)
I mostly use an A5 binder to organize my life, and I love anything that's been made for that format - eg. dividers, plain note paper, fun fill-ins.
I think it's great to receive a dashboard with someone elses favourite post-its, tabs, etc. I also like to insert journalcards or project life styled cards into my journal (and happy mail).
I also really enjoy receiving other people's favourite printables - especially if already printed out since my printer access currently is spotty at best.
As for colours, I'm not a big fan of purple but I use pretty much everything else in my planner. Good colourful pens are always a hit as well.
