About Me

I'm in my early 30s, and a stay at home mom to three little girls ages 8, 6, and 4 yrs. Crafts I love are altered matchboxes, decos, art journals, and some ATCs. I do some sewing, embroidery, crochet, knitting, and stamp carving. I have a shop on Etsy, where I sell vintage clothing.

Wishlist

fav

  • Anything with fairy tales. My favorite is Little Red Riding Hood. I also love Snow White and Rose Red, Rumpelstiltskin, and The Snow Queen. I like both dark and whimsical interpretations. For classic children's books, I love Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan, Heidi, and Pinocchio. Please, NO Disney or famous movie versions
  • Whimsical creatures - faeries, unicorns, gnomes, goblins, etc.
  • Mushroooms (designs pls, not the food!)
  • Mermaids, selkies, nymphs...
  • Japanese obake (ghosts/monsters)
  • Tiny trinkets, bits and bobs (charms, cabochons, beads, etc.)
  • Stickers
  • kawaii/Japanese fabrics
  • Miniatures (for dioramas and matchbox shrines)
  • Anything related to British Victorian and Edwardian time periods
  • 1920s, flapper, art deco
  • Vintage kitsch anthropomorphic animals (esp. fawns, poodles, lambs, and bluebirds.)
  • Kawaii stationery - I prefer to receive whole or even partially used items as opposed to loose (unless I'm in a swap specifically for loose)
  • Anything similar to/inspired by my Etsy favorites
  • Surprises!

Kawaii

I love all Japanese brands, though I tend to avoid Sanrio and San-x since they are they most popular. Though I prefer San-x, if I had to choose of the two. I do like Little Twin Stars, Piggy Girl (lately I've grown to like her), Jinbei san, and any older San-x characters, like Nyan Nyan Nyanko, Kogepan, Mikan Bouya, Atsugari san, Sea Paradise etc. and test characters.

Other characters/designs

Unko chan (poo), Awawa chan (soap bubble), soda chan, pill chan, teeth/dental, food with faces, mushrooms, deer/fawns, ghosts/obake, witches, monsters esp anything with a Kappa, (green water spirit) Hanako san (the girl in the bottom left corner), and any winter/snow themed kawaii.

  • I love Korean stationery. Especially anything from the brand Orange Story, particularly items featuring Lovely White or similar girl characters.

  • Least Favorite characters - Hello Kitty, Rilakkuma (not a big fan of cute bears), Spottie Dottie, Pochacco, Pekkle, Batz Maru, Kuromi, Jewel Pets, Monokuro Boo, Jewel Cat, Afro Ken

  • One of my favorite brands is Cram Cream. I love any of the cute animals or food with faces.

In search of : Night Capriccio by Mind Wave. I've been searching for this memo pad for several years. If you have it (even used) I'm interested! deer

Comment: Ooooh, thank you so much for the gorgeous parcel! I couldn't contain my excitement and already opened two of the parcels: the socks and the area 51 notebook. Soooo awesome! I'll save the rest for Christmas, but these two items already deserve a heart. :) Your parcel is ready to go, too, but I can't take it to the post office before Monday. I hope it'll reach you soon!

Comment: Awesome! Sorry for the late rating- you sent this early but I just watched it... decided to watch these after I finished mine. I love the Christmas ornaments! That laser gun especially and the gingerbread house- are gorgeous! The Krampus ornament is amazing and I like how you said "you can see the fear in their eyes" lol. I save a lot of the paper things from swaps as well and they end up in my smashbooks/ junk journals or being torn up to use in collage/ ATCs or various projects. I try not to keep ALL of it anymore but it's so pretty I love keeping that paper stuff from swaps. :)

Comment: Super cute package, I love the presentation!! I'm saving to open at Christmas. This Christmas card is the cutest!!
Response: I'm so glad it arrived safely! I really hope you like the items! Btw for the socks, they may look small, but I asked the guy at the store, and he said they are meant to fit a standard adult foot.
