About Me

UPDATE 9/28/2011

i have moved to a new apartment, so to all my penpals and swapfriends please make sure to use my new address. message me if you need it! thanks so much!

Hi! My name is alex and i live in san antonio texas. im 24 and i live with my boyfriend. i work at a cafe downtown and love it! my favorite things to think about are INFINITY and FOREVER and OUTER SPACE. i could think about the concept of infinity for hours, and dont even get me started on the COSMOS. i love the idea of best friends forever, love for everyone forever, living with infinity in my heart and making new friends. id rather give than receive(but of course i love receiving too) and want to spoil my friends at all times! lets be penpals >.<

This is a picture of me and my BFF! Shes on the left, I am on the right :)

Favorite Movies

I love most anime, anything with bill murray, films directed by david lynch, especially "blue velvet", wes anderson movies, woody allen, pretty much any horror movie i will watch at least once..i lovvvve the horror genre, especially zombies and 70's italian horror flicks.i absolutely love peter sellers and every stanley kubrick movie. if i had to pick a top three movies i guess i'd have to go with (in no order)

  1. blue velvet

  2. breathless(jean luc goddard)

  3. spirited away

and i am 100% obsessed with harry potter, the movies AND the books...one of my favorite things to do is to geek out on harry potter, i love harry potter fans just as much!!

Favorite Crafts

i loveeeee making sticker collages! i just fill frames up with the best assortment of stickers i can arrange, and i have vintage wrapping paper and cuteoverload.com calendar photos to use as the background. i typically add rhinestones, random objects and paint with nail polish and glitter to make them extra cute!! my main focus on crafts centers around food, i just think food is so extra cute and everyone loves it, so why not?? i also make felt friends, although i am a very slow sewer so i dont make as many. some of my favorites have been the felt watermelon friend, felt fried egg, and of course a felt cupcake!

Favorite Books

i absolutely love to read! of course the harry potter series is one of my faves, but i am also really in to classic literature. nabokov is my favorite author, i have read lolita too many times to count. recently i read "let the right one in" and was blown away by how good it was. i also enjoy reading dave eggers and cormac mccarthy. i like the movie adaptations of his novels as well. :}


my arms and legs

cant wait to be finished!!!!

I am also really interested in tattoos, i am working on finishing up my left arm sleeve, and i have tattoos all over my legs. i have many food themed tattoos. i am mostly interested in american traditional styled tattoos and would be interested in any vintage tattoo ephemera.

things i collect

food miniatures

hello kitty anything


vintage clothes

vintage hats

found objects


anything japanese

anything from another country


cupcake themed items


colored glitter and

small boxes/jars

.....i just really love collecting anything cute!!

animal lover

i live in a tiny apartment with my boyfriend, so the only pet i can have right now is my hamster, petunia. she is really cute, dwarf hamster, with black and white spots. i do have two dogs at my parents house, and three cats and two birds. i look at cuteoverload.com every day and cant get enough. there isnt a single animal i dislike, even snakes and i dont kill bugs. i would love to do a pet or animal themed swap or just email cute pet pictures!!

favorite things

i love castles, unicorns, cupcakes, sunshine, beaches, japan, rodents, doggies, kittens, googly eyes, nail polish, my plants, any flowers, best friends, mythical creatures, brazilian music, psychedelic music, the 1960's, the 1970's, old people, babies and road trips to name a view.


i want a kawaii matchbook drawer so bad! i dont know how to make one but i would be willing to set up a big trade in exchange for one. if you are interested please message me!! i want to commission someone to make me a cute one!

also would LOVE any amigurumi...i have no talent for that kind of thing otherwise id make it myself but like the matchbox drawer i would totally love one and send lotsa goodies in exchange!!


jewelery! i love gaudy stuff, like FAKE gold, big hoop earrings, clunky chains and big pendants. I dont like anything that isnt kawaii OR gold toned. i dont mean that i want it to be real gold, just the color. i dont even care if its the cheap stuff that turns my skin green hahah i just like it tacky!

japanese treats,

letter sets(preferably sanrio, hello kitty or little twin stars or kawaii)

food erasers,

japanese miniatures,

food themed anything,


handwritten letters,

handmade crafts,

new bffs/penpals,

cassette tapes or mix cds with your favorite songs on there,

kawaii stuffs(anything really) or new books you think i would enjoy reading.

i am really into brazilian and latin cultures and also asian cultures. i have a close vietnamese friend so anything from vietnam would be extra special. i would also really like anything rillakuma as i hardly have anything!

i do not like

-anything religious or motivational unless it is buddhist or hindu related art.

-no disney please

-i cannot stand lady gaga/katy perry/kesha etc...lets pretend that they dont exist please.

conniebobear on Aug 30, 2011:

I bumped the date further since neither of us has sent yet. So no rush! I'm already done with yours, I just have to get to the post office

theannieHall on Aug 14, 2011:

yeay I thought you'd get a kick outta the lolita coasters! i hadnt been using them and I thought it was time to do a passdown so the coasters would have some justice haha. But, haven't read any of the dave book and I love trying new authors so yeah send him down. plus, nabokov is your favorite author and hes one of my alltime favorites too so clearly we have similar literature tastes, yumm haha. also I think in the letter for my # i might have said 422 but its 622- i mix those up sometimes

petitpaindepice on Aug 13, 2011:
