My name is Nina and I'm from Australia.
I've been on a LONG hiatus from swapping and pen palling, but I'm here to get back into it!!
I love sending and receiving cute lovely mail. :3 If you'd like to be pen pals, please send me a message! :)
I have a stationery obsession, especially kawaii! I love kawaii! I'm mainly here for kawaii swaps and I have a section on my kawaii preferences below. :D
I'm into art - making it and looking at it! I love drawing and playing around with other mediums.
I love all sorts of music, and I love seeing bands play live!
I like D.I.Y. I like paper craft and making zines etc. But I'm all about a balance between D.I.Y. and QUALITY. I mostly D.I.Y. for myself, and only send handmade stuff to people I know are interested/will like it. I DON'T want or need any ribbons, threads, buttons, scraps of paper, scrapbooking supplies unless we've specifically arranged something.
I love animals! Some of my favourites are cats, octopuses, squids and other cephalopods, jelly fish, crabs, sting rays, bats, rabbits and round-shaped animals (like round birds!) :3
I believe strongly in social justice and anti-discrimination issues, and am quite interested in political and social issues.
San-X (my favourite kawaii brand!):
Sentimental Circus, Kutusita Nyanko, Mamegoma, Nyan Nyan Nyankos, Homekoro, Toromi, Chocopa, Rilakkuma, Sabo Kappa, Oyasumi Bakura, Berry Puppy, Zombbit
Little Twin Stars, Cinnamoroll, Kuromi, Charmmy Kitty
General Kawaii Favourites:
Fairy tale kawaii and Alice In Wonderland
Sweets themes (donuts, cakes, ice-creams, macarons etc!)
Food with faces, especially: sweets, cups/tea/teapots, donuts, milk, burgers
Kawaii ghosts, skeletons, skulls (I'm a little picky with these :P )
Pastel colours - blue, pink, purple, mint, teal, lemon
Sea creatures and themes
Other brands: Kamio, Q-Lia, Crux, Mind Wave, Pool Cool, Fortissimo, and Swimmer, and all kawaii brands :D
Kawaii items Iâ€™d love to receive:
Memo pads, mini and 4x6
Pencils and pens
Stickers, sticker flakes/sacks/sheets
Envelopes and mini envelopes
Homewares; cups, bento boxes, etc.
Phone charms â€“ especially plush toy ones, and ballchain plushies
Re-Ment â€“ I donâ€™t collect miniatures, but some of the phone-charm style or ball-chain re-ment I think are really cute. Especially pen ones!
Kawaii things I like that donâ€™t necessarily have to be â€˜brandâ€™:
Squishies (especially like bread, burger, sweets [and San-X])
Small plush toys/phone charms
Some stationery, depending..
Thank you, but please don't send me...
Kawaii with real people
Super super blingy glittery things
Licensed stuff that is bad quality/cheap
Don't want Disney, Diddl, Blue Bear, My Little Ponies, Snoopy etc.
I don't want handmade kawaii (unless arranged)
No one wants to receive rubbish! Some non-brand letter sets/paper/pens, etc are really cute. BUT Only branded kawaii should be sent in kawaii swaps unless itâ€™s been arranged otherwise. I donâ€™t mind these things if weâ€™ve arranged them, or as extras, but itâ€™s a let-down to send out expensive branded kawaii and receive only cheap non-brand stuff in return, no matter how cute it is. Iâ€™m happy to arrange swaps that are partly kawaii brands and partly non-brand kawaii (like some kawaii brand stationery and some non-brand squishies and deco tape!) :3
Mail, airmail patterns, stamp patterns etc
Stuff that is cute and horror themed at the same time!
Octopus, sea creatures, jellyfish!
Plaid, tartan, check
Sweets, especially cupcakes, macarons, donuts, ice-cream etc.
Some retro and vintage styles
Some shabby chic style
Cups, teapots, coffee, tea motifs
Sky, clouds, rainbows
Alice In Wonderland
Pen pals, mail
Chocolate (but not in large quantities haha)
Coffee and tea (and I like to try different types!)
Anime and manga
Bracelets and necklaces (depending on style!)
Lip balm (and lip tints/stains)
Fashion magazines from other countries
Favourite flavours: Grape, lime, chocolate, rose, vanilla, lemon Favourite scents: Vanilla, rose, grape, musky scents
Anything sexist, racist, homophobic, etc. or anything cruel to animals. No animal testing would be awesome. :)
Thank you for the thought, but I'm NOT into...
Super florally stuff
Babies, children, wedding themes
Teddy bears (I like bears in general, and pandas and such, but not a big fan of the 'traditional' sort of 'Teddy Bears Picnic' type teddies)
Kawaii with real people... although I do like kawaii with real animals (especially cats/rabbits)
I love coffee but don't like coffee or mocha flavoured things much :P
Scraps of paper or scrapbooking things
Generally don't want to receive handmade unless arranged
Notebooks - I especially don't like plain ones or spiral ones
Lavender scented things
... But having said that, there can always be exceptions! (Just ask me :))
I love lots of different music! I really love punk, but I listen to all sorts of things. Lately have been listening to a bit of old Green Day, Elliott Smith, Big Star, Tame Impala, Pond, Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, Violent Soho, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard....

We're all here for a good time, and to have fun swapping great items, right!? :)
I always check profiles of my swap partners - what's the point otherwise? We all would like to receive things we LIKE, so I always try to choose according to their taste! ^^
I pledge to rate, and I to try my absolute best to always send on time. If there is an emergency, I will contact my partners! If you have any problems with a swap I've sent, please please send me a message :)
Also - I love private swaps! If anyone wants to know my dream swap, take a look at my favourites on my flickr. :)
