Updates

14th April, 2016 I joined a few swaps but ended up being AWOL for a bit.

12th Feb 2016 I've been away for a couple of years, but I'd like to resume swapping again. Can't wait to get back into this :)

1st Jan 2013 Happy New Year :) Decided to get back into swapping again. If there are any issues with outstanding swaps, please PM me so we can work it out. I had a lot of personal problems over the past 7 months or so, so swapping had to take a back seat. I'm sorry for any inconvenience I may have caused.

Read Me :)

  • I try my best to send swaps on time and in the event that I cannot, I try to get in touch with my partner as soon as I can.

  • The Trinidad & Tobago Postal Service is not all that bad, but for destinations further than the US, there may be delayed delivery.

About Me

Hi :) I'm a 29 year old female from Trinidad & Tobago, residing in the larger island of Trinidad. I joined Swap-bot because I wanted to start collecting post cards and find a few pen pals I could write to.

I have a few mental disorders and thought I would share this piece of information because I'd like to communicate with others who do as well. I also have Type 2 Diabetes.

I study music and I have about a year and a half left. My loves other than music (and my friends) are reading, Bob Marley, photography (haven't touched a camera for some time though), jewerlry, jewelery making, writing, reading and learning new things.

Things I'd Like To Learn

Here are some things I'd like to learn how to do or get better at:

  • Crochet I have started but I find it rather difficult. I put down the hook for a while but I'm going to start a new, simple project by the end of January
  • Cross stitch
  • Mosaic
  • Quilting
  • Embroidery (learned how to do it in high school, but never pursued it afterwards)
  • Paper crafts
  • Working with polymer clay
  • Journal making
  • Making perfumes/soaps/body lotions, etc
  • Painting with acrylic and water colour paints
  • Drawing
  • Making ATCs

Things I Can Swap

  • Letters (I love writing letters)
  • Post cards (from Trinidad)
  • Trinidad & Tobago souviners (t shirts, key rings, post cards, tourist-y things in general)
  • Stationery (papers, envelopes, small notebooks, note cards, labels, pens and other writing implements, stickers, etc.)
  • Teas
  • Beads
  • Yarn/Embroidery thread
  • Jewelrery
  • Nail polish
  • Small things, generally (feel free to PM any questions you have)

Swaps I'm Interested In

  • letters
  • postcards
  • stationery in general and stuff from Hello Kitty or Lisa Frank - but any cute brands that I've never seen before are welcome too!
  • crochet (once it's something REALLY SIMPLE like a granny square, I'm a complete novice)
  • jewelry making
  • simple sewing projects (the operative word being SIMPLE)
  • stickers
  • anything cute, shiny and elegant
  • books
  • coloured pens
  • recipes
  • sheet music
  • anything that can help with decoupage projects, crochet projects, diabetic cooking
  • organic things
  • books/literature
  • music
  • anything that isn't in my 'Stuff I Don't Want' list (that covers a lot of ground.)

I'd also like to try a whimsy jar swap eventually, if anyone is interested.

I'm not too familiar with ATCs and matchboxes but I'd be happy to attempt a swap based on both if I could get an explanation on what I'd have to do. Feel free to message me about any other themes I haven't mentioned! And keep in mind though that Hello Kitty merchandise is difficult to find in Trinidad, but I can send you all the Lisa Frank stickers you desire. :D

Stuff I Don't Want

  • Christian themed stuff
  • patriotic USA stuff (postcards are okay however)
  • sweets/other eats that ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR DIABETICS
  • Halloween stuff
  • Thanksgiving stuff

Comment: Oh, Louise! Thank you for the amazing package! It is absolutely perfect, and I wish I could give you more than a single heart. :) There isn't one item that I can point out as a favourite, because I love every single thing. I'm going to get such a kick out of using my goodies! Thanks for being a super swap partner! :D

Comment: What a great postcard! Thank you so much. :D I have seen pelicans like this up close on a vacation to Mexico once (along the coast of the Gulf). They're sooo big! And I like the stamp, too. Sure, I'd love to swap again. I hope my postcard will reach you soon! :]

Has my pc made it's way there yet? If not, let me know and I can send another. I'm finding that the US mail is very slow compared to a lot of other countries.

Would you be interested in doing a Private Postcard Swap? I have some great postcards of Washington, DC and would love one from Trinidad & Tobago. If you're interested, let me know!
