I joined Swap-Bot in 2011 and saw all these swaps that said "kawaii" and I thought what the heck is that? I was then introduced to a whole new world that changed my life. I began collecting stationery, plushes, squishies and then began making videos on YouTube. My channel 'TheHollycopter' now has grown to be something I'm very proud of and I really have Swap-bot to thank for that!

txI'm married with no kids - we do, however, have 4 rabbits that keep us busy!

computerI used work as a multimedia designer at a digital signage company and I love all areas of graphic design. I started my YouTube channel as a hobby and it grew more than I expected. Now I have the amazing opportunity to do it as a full time job and I am truly living my dream!

imgimgimgimgimgimgimgimgimgimgimg rainbow I'm a very happy person and always try to see the positive in everything! I like to think I have a very open mind and I try to be very generous and understanding. Being considerate is something I value very much in myself and others.


I work very hard on my swaps (I have pictures of some of them on my flickr), and I always send them on time, or I'll let you know in advance if I think I'll send late (which will only happen if I'm DYING or something very serious and rare). I wait impatiently for swaps to arrive, I hate flakers as much as anyone, and I rate within 5 minutes of opening a swap, or at least the same day. If you have any issues with my swap please let me know! My goal is to make my partners happy, so please feel free to email me or message me if you do not receive your swap and I will gladly resend it before you rate! Thank you!





Favorite TV/Movies

officeMy favorite TV shows are Project Runway, Top Chef, Food Network Challenge, Face Off, pretty much any show where they are competing in a creative way. I also LOVE The Office (the American version), Parks and Rec, Modern Family. I'm not huge into sitcoms except for the great shows of the 90s like Full House or Saved By The Bell. I love educational shows like Planet Earth as well. I recently got into Married at First Sight which I find fascinating.


shortcakeAs a kid I loved Rainbow Brite, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony, Salute Your Shorts, Doug, Rugrats, Clarissa Explains it All, all those 90's Nickelodeon shows! If you find anything relating to these items (from the 80s/90s, not the new versions, boo!) that would be amazing.

cluelessFor movies, my all time favorites are generally old as well: A Little Princess, The Secret Garden, Back to the Future Trilogy, Clueless, Titanic, Tommy Boy, Dumb and Dumber, Robin Hood Men in Tights, 10 Things I Hate About You, Teen Witch, Fifth Element, Better Off Dead, etc.

walleNewer movies I love are Tron: Legacy, Transformers, Batman Begins/Dark Knight, Harry Potter, Wall-E, and the Toy Story trilogy to name a few.



Favorite Crafts

letter I LOVE stationery, particularly letter sets with matching stickers and envies, in all kinds of themes! I love Kawaii stationery especially.

I very much enjoy doing kawaii resin pieces and would love to receive resin pieces as well!

I love polka dots and stripes and I ADORE Cath Kidston and will love you if you send me anything of hers!

cath kidston

pencilpencilI like florals, vintage, and French stationery as well. Anything with graphic elements or typography, too. I love letterpress stuff too, it's so lovely. I pretty much love everything stationery related! I'm not picky when it comes to craft stuff and will take any stickers, deco tape, labels, pens, pencils, stamps or letter-writing goodies you have to share :)

glueI love paper crafts, especially paper toys. If you would like to trade them that would be awesome!

(toys from FantasicToys on Etsy)

sew I love sewing though I'm I'm a bit of an impatient sewer! If I can't cut it out and sew it in one sitting I get a bit restless. I love Amy Butler fabrics or kawaii fabrics if you have scraps to share! I'm working on my first quilt and I'm excited to finish it in all it's crooked glory.


I love Decoden, so I'd love to get cabochons, micro-marbles, glitter, or anything to deco! :) I love Whipple kits! Pics of some of my decoden on my flickr :)

(I didn't make this - it's just AWESOME!)

Sweets, sweets, sweets. Did I mention I'm super into sweets right now? This sounds super strange, but I love when they have a thick black outline, almost like they were colored in a coloring book. I also love pastel colored sweets - cupcakes, donuts, macarons, ice cream, you really can't go wrong! Kamio has some of the cutest sweets I think! ^.^


Burgers too. Burgers and Soda. Obsessed.

Types of items I enjoy receiving are cute pens and pencils, sticker sheets or sacks, memo pads, spiral notebooks, pencil cases, keychains, cell phone straps, plushies, lettersets, deco-tape, cabochons, erasers or re-ments. Pretty much anything :)

A note on loose memo swaps: Lately I am in LOVE with memo sheets that you can cut out and fold into things like little envelopes! ^.^


Kawaii Not Preferred
- Sentimental Circus
- Pictures of real animals or children
- Badtz-Maru or Keromi (or things with skulls) - I never much had an interest in the "bad attitude" ones, haha
- Tarepanda
- I'm kinda over the Crux bunnies/kitties, but I don't dislike them terribly.
- Kawaii Girls like this, they're a bit too anime looking for me!



necklaceI have recently come to love long necklaces (around 30 inches) as I love being able to just take them on and off without unhooking them! I love fun necklaces with simple chains and one cool thing on the bottom, my favorite right now is one with a robot from Forever 21. I also love post earrings in bright colors, or just sparkly. I love dangly earrings too, just not hoops because I feel they make me look like a pirate :( I love cute rings too! Rings with bows on them make my heart happy. I don't really wear bracelets.



pineappleAs far as scents go, I love plain old vanilla or tropical, sweet, fruity smells like pineapple and coconut. I like most florals scents like lavender, cherry blossom, etc.I love most aromatherapy and I LOVE the Black Current Vanilla from Bath and Body works, it's the best smell ever!!! If you send me bubble bath in that scent I will surely call you my best friend. I love most smells from there, I just don't really like fall smells like cinnamon, pumpkin, or anything too woodsy.


Beauty Products

perfumemascaralipstickeyeshadowcompact I don't wear makeup all the time, but I love nail polish, especially neon pink (or any pink!). I also love (unused) lip glosses. Shower gel or bubblebath is also wonderful. I love soap! A beautifully wrapped soap bar is so lovely ^.^



candy I'm more of a vanilla person, but I do enjoy milk chocolate. I don't like dark chocolate by itself, it's too bitter for my fragile taste buds (but my husband loves it so send away!). I love milk chocolate caramels, Almond Joy (or anything with coconut), Milky Way, Twix, Baby Ruth, Kit-Kat, 100 Grand, white chocolate etc. I like peanut butter, just not in crunchy form (I hate Butterfinger!). My favorite candies are the sour kinds like Sour Punch Straws, Sour Patch Kids, Sour Skittles, sour belts or just anything covered in sugar pretty much :) I also love fruity candies like gummy bears, Swedish Fish, Starbursts, or Twizzlers.



Please don't send:

  • Scraps of paper, I have enough already! (this doesn't include any paper with kawaii characters or the like ^.^)
  • Bloody or morbid things (unless I'm in a Dexter swap, lol)
  • Nude images
  • Coffee or Tea
  • Anime or manga

I love Sanrio, though there are some I like more than others. My least favorite characters from Sanrio are Kuromi and Badtz-Maru. Please no Diddl or Blue Bear.

I hate the smell of smoke and my husband is very sensitive to it.



Please and thank you

  • We all have junk to get rid of, I understand, but please don't send me a pile of random bits unless you think I'll actually like it please!
  • I love when partners add a note with their swap so I can have some sort of connection to you. Swap-bot is also about making friends, right? :)
  • If you could please put the name of the swap somewhere on or in the package so I know what it's for!


The Hubs

hubsIf you have a significant other that you'd like to do a private swap for so my hubsband can get in on some swap-love, feel free to message me!

bunnyHello, my name is Adorable.



I live in California, USA so I have access to Japanese goodies like candy kits, stickers, etc.


Gift giving is my love language and I love giving just as much as I do receiving!



animalsJust for fun I'd thought I'd add this section to share some of my favorite websites that I love for free printables like labels, lettersets, toys, etc. Maybe you'll find something you didn't know about!

  • World Label Blog
    This is a great place to find really cute printable address labels (including vintage!) and lots of other awesome paper goodies. You can download .pdfs, fill in your address right into the file, then print them on Avery labels! Very handy and very awesome.

  • Rilakkuma Paper Toys
    This site is in Japanese, so I suggest a browser that will translate for you, like Chrome. There are TONS of super adorable 3D Rilakkuma paper toys to print and put together. Lot's of cute costumes!

  • Jinjerup
    Jinjerup has great designs for purchase, but also great freebies to print like lettersets, gift boxes, place-cards, etc.

  • KFStudio
    KFStudio is also a great Japanese website with super kawaii lettersets with matching envelopes, memo pages, and even activities for children.

  • Eat Drink Chic
    If you don't know Eat Drink Chic, go now. Just, go. That's all I need to say.

  • heartGlitter Graphics Most of the animated graphics on my profile are from this site. Such a great selection! To add images to your profile or post on someones profile use this code (remove the spaces first): ! [title of image] (URL of image)
