About Me

My name is Cheryl and I'm what someone may describe as an introverted extrovert, which probably explains my awkwardness (and I'm so so so very awkward). Right now, Swap-Bot is where I go to let out my creativity, and I'm having a really great time here.

I'm fairly new to Swap Bot, having only been here for less than a year. Generally, I'm an easy going swapper - and my schedule is opening up so I'm free to do more swaps next month. I love washi swaps, flip books and decorated envies, and I try to make them more often but my schedule has been insane lately!

5 favourite foods

  1. Cherry flavoured things
  2. Peppermint hot chocolate
  3. Pastries (I even like them on washi)
  4. Gummy candies in all it's textures
  5. Banana and banana flavoured things

5 foods I don't like

  1. Instant coffee
  2. Liquorice
  3. Ginger candies
  4. Most flavoured coffees*
  5. Mayonnaise
  • the only exception is perhaps a sneaky yearly peppermint mocha from Starbucks around Christmas-time.

10 favourite books

  1. Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain
  2. A Day at elBulli by Albert Adrià and Juli Soler
  3. A Life in Frocks by Kelly Doust
  4. Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
  5. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
  6. The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
  7. South of the Border, West of the Sun by Haruki Murakami
  8. Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffinegger
  9. The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice
  10. The Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald


Here's what I like:

  • vintage illustrated children's books
  • independent designer stickers/slaps
  • small prints by independent designers
  • watercolored washi tape
  • flamingo washi tape
  • world map related items
  • everything cacti and succulents
  • la garconne style
  • worn in 90s t-shirts
  • calligraphic/handwritten quotes
  • graffiti and street art
  • themed happy mail (PM me if you'd like to swap)
  • vintage sundresses and jeans
  • sprinkle printed anything
  • cut outs of vintage ads
  • cat, coffee, or mermaid themed washi
  • DIY home decor
  • shaped paperclips (so cute!)
  • fun sized chocolate or candy treats
  • monstera leaf prints
  • Girl Gang affiliated imagery
  • markets, bazaars and fairs
  • coffee related things
  • precious stone and crystal illustrations
  • rose gold
  • old Archie comics
  • Sandy Lion and Lisa Frank stickers
  • note cards, postcards and letter paper
  • creepy cute things
  • The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland Tokyo
  • The Addams Family
  • candy (I have a sweet tooth)
  • cats!

ᵟຶᴖ ᵟຶ

The following are things I would prefer not to receive:

  • anything with snails on it
  • religious pamphlets/quotes
  • instant coffee sachets
  • used cosmetic products
  • bookmarks
  • keychains
  • coasters
  • magnets

Outgoing 。◕ ‿ ◕。

I wish I'd bothered to take a photo of the first few swaps I made! Until I bother to start an Instagram profile or blog, here's what I'm working on mailing out right now:

These were probably from May - June 2017.

I think I made this around the same time as well.

This would have been made in June 2017 too.

I've been trying new things lately. This is one of my latest swaps from October 2017.

Regarding the post

I'm really into making sure the swaps I mail out look cute. I don't like rushing swaps, and if work piles up, which it tends to unexpectedly, I will likely be a wee bit late in mailing out my swaps. But, I promise I'll never mail out an ugly swap or ignore you.

I will be mailing my swaps via Post Malaysia's international air mail. It does take some time but more often than not will arrive at it's destination (eventually). Often, it takes a month or so. Sometimes a little longer because of customs in various countries. Mainly the United States. Which is kind of a pain.

Please be patient with mail coming out of this end of the world, but do let me know if a package fails to reach you and I will replace it.

It should also be mentioned that it takes awhile for post to arrive from abroad, as well. I'm quite used to this now, so drop me a line if I'm taking too long to rate you. Usually I'm still waiting on the post, and I'll generally rate immediately so no fear! I haven't forgotten you 💕

Private Swaps // Pen Pals

I'm looking for more pen pals. I've been swapping for almost a year now, and I've realised that what I'm looking for is someone who would like to do more dedicated creative swaps (with letters). Getting to know someone and seeing how their crafting has changed over time has become one of my favourite things to do on Swap-Bot. If you like my profile, and want to swap on a regular basis, just drop me a PM!
