About Me

Hello to you!!! :D :D

My name is iliana I'm 27 and I live in Greece! I'm currently working on my Master in architectural engineering. I'm also working in our family business where we construct charcoal grills and ovens. We also have a YouTube channel, Grill philosophy, full of grill recipes.

I'm a very enthousiastic and curious person, who always welcomes surprises and a good adventure! I like reading books, journaling and crafting. Other passions include packaging design and graphic, language learning, perfume making, psychology and dancing. Above all, I like exploring human nuture, and I find fascinating exploring different charactes in person, in books or the cinema. I also love exploring the Japanese culture in all its aspects.

General Likes and Themes

Journaling is among my current hobbies, so I love receiving things that I can use in that. (My journaling style is similar to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28YylbO6sfw )

Generally, I prefer receiving items with people depicting on them (compared to nuture or animals for example), not real photography type, though.

I like rubber stamps, stickers that aren't intented for children (they are the most common type in my country) and washi tapes with more white or neutral colors and patterns. I also like small cards or ephemera, especially vintage items, but not necessarily. Pappery things that I can use in packaging are also something I adore, like lightweight pappers, gift bags, tags etc. I like plain round decorative stickers as well, that I can use for backrounds in my crafts.

Postcards

When it comes to postcards, I almost always prefer non-touristy ones. And again as above, I prefer people (not real photography though) as a theme on them, if you have to choose among other categories. :)

Teas

I currently prefer black teas or green teas, because I drink them instead of morning coffee (which I don't enjoy much).

Tastes that I don't like are: jasmine, orange, mints, cranberry

I particularly like: hibiscus, apple, raspberry

I don't have any food allergies.

Washies

I journal frequently in my Traveler's Company notebook and I use a lot of washi tape. I prefer washes that are more neutral in design so that I can mix and match them easily. I already have many rolls that are more statement-like pieces. So I do lack ones that are more simple, like monochromatic, grid/pattern, numbers etc. I also like washes that have white color as a background. I like all sizes.

Favorite Books

I enjoy reading fiction and poetry, mostly classical literature, magical realism or non-fiction books about various topics.

Favorite writer (favorite books of them): Leo Tolstoy (Anna Karenina), Fyodor Dostoyevski (Brothers Karamazov), Haruki Murakami (1Q84), Tom Robbins (Villa incognito), Edgar Allan Poe (various), J.K. Rowling (HP series), Yoko Ogawa (Revenge {amazing short story collection}).

I'm currently reading East of Eden (John Steinbeck) and South of the border, west of the sun (Haruki Murakami) and I enjoy them both so far.

Favorite Movies

I love exploring cinema from all around the world. I have a flair in the Japanese culture in general, so that goes with the cinema, as well. But I also enjoy different kinds as well.

I also love watching Disney movies and other animated films!! :D Top 3 Disney movies are: the Hatchback of Notre Dame, Aladdin, the Aristocats!

Favorite directors (favorite film of them): Yorgos Lanthimos (the Lobster), Roman Polanski (the Tenant), Krystof Kieslowski (La double vie de Veronique), Kenzi Mizoguchi (Ugetsu Monogatari), Shohei Imamura (Warm water under the red bridge), Hayao Miyazaki (My Neighbor Totoro), Wims Wenders (Paris Texas).

Other: Harry Potter / Star wars series

Comment: THANK YOU for everything!! I love it all, and it’s so nicely packaged!! I went to the Snoopy Museum in April 2017! Wasn’t it great?! I didn’t see that coaster. It’s two of my favorite things - Snoopy and the moon!!! Can’t thank you enough for such a special swap. I really love it and appreciate it!!! XOXO
Response: Hey, thank you for your nice comment and heart! :D The museum was awesome really!! The coaster wasn't in the museum's gift shop..! It was in a pack of six (different designs) in a supermarket in Tokyo!... Snoopy is really everywhere there! Maybe equally or more common (? haha maybe not) than Hello Kitty, lol..... I'm so happy you enjoyed it! I think I have gifted most of these coasters now haha. Only kept two for me! <3 Also, Happy December! :D

Comment: Oh goodness, this swap almost makes me sad it's so special as I k ow this is the third time you've sent and I can on,y imagine the beautiful things that were in the other two that have been lost. Everything you sent was such a gift, the beautiful sticker flakes, the absolutely wonderful fairy tale images, and your memories and story. And the Magic cards will go to my son tomorrow when he gets up. Thank you so very much for everything!
Response: Ohh, I'm so very happy that you enjoyed my swap and thank you so much for your patience, because it really me took me very long to resend it properly!! :D I got lucky, because the previous swaps got back to me, so the contents where more or less the same! I think I altered them a bit, but not much! The only missing things where the envelopes, which where more artistic than the third one..! :D As for the magic cards, well I am a fan of the game so I had to send something! ^_^ I know they weren't anything special the ones I picked, but I just wanted to share my common interest with fellow players!! :D Although the one card of those got me out of bad gaming situations on several occasions...!! haha!! ^_^ I wish you a very very nice November! (Fall is leaving already, and it's my favorite season...!) I'm taking a break from swapbot atm to focus more on my thesis! I look forward to swap with you again, given the chance, once I'm more active! Until then take care!! <3 Many many sweet greetings!! ^_^
