I love getting things in the mail, and I just wanted a reason to be excited about going to the mailbox again.
I'm a newly-wed 25-year-old female. No kids, no plans for them. I live in a small apartment with my husband and our cats.
Apparently I sometimes put the wrong screen name on things. If you get something from "sociallyawkward" or "thisxabovexall"... that's me. (On PostPunkKitchen and Postcrossing, respectively.) I realize this seems fishy, like I've been swapping (or flaking) under different screen names, but I assure you it's just absent-mindedness at its best.
My husband and I are vegetarian.
Please, no meaty-products, gelatin or animal fats. This applies to non-food items, too... No leather or wool, please.
Don't worry too much about sending recipes containing meat. I can always substitute ingredients on my own. :)
Colors and Theme: Lime green and tangerine, any bright colors. Citrus fruits. (Lemons, limes, oranges, grapefruits.)
Favorite Flavors: vanilla, chocolate, lemon, rosemary, maple, cilantro, spicy, sweet
Wanted: recipes, cookie cutters, potholders, towels, an apron, tea, bento supplies, chocolate, decorating goodies
I'm just getting into bento, and don't have hardly any supplies. Anything would be greatly appreciated.

Video Games: Nintendo, Mario, Yoshi, Toad, Mario Kart, Donkey Kong, Kingdom Hearts, Animal Crossing, Harvest Moon
Other: Trivial Pursuit, Bust magazine, VegNews magazine, Geek magazine
Colors and Theme: Cerulean blue, light creamsicle orange, anything bright. Duckies.
Wanted: Decorations, duckies, bath bombs, bath salts, candles, etc. (Lavender and vanilla are best, any herbal or foodie scent is great.)
Gardening: I have a small container garden on the balcony. There's not much to it at the moment, but I'm working on it. I plan to have a community garden plot next year.
Wanted: seeds, gnomes, faeries, planters, decorations, waterers
The Cats: The twelve-year-old, Max, is black and white cow-spotted, which has earned him such nicknames as "Moo Cat" and "Cow Kitty."
We now have another cat, Alfie, who is an orange medium-hair tabby. (Born May, 2009)
Both love handmade toys, catnip/cat grass, canned food, and Max has a bizarre fascination with lollipops.
Wanted: Toys! Handmade seem to hold up better to their destructive tendencies.
Favorite Animals: cats, leopards, ducks, manatees
Favorite Flowers/Plants: daisies, sunflowers, poppies, maple, lavender, sage
Favorite Stones: quartz, amethyst, carnelian, cactus/spirit quartz, garnet, aquamarine
Holidays/Occasions: I prefer seasonal/nature items to holiday-themed ones. (Snowflakes instead of Santa, pumpkins instead of witches.)
Politics/Religion: Liberal atheist. I don't know if that will ever be relevant, but there it is.
Favorite Swaps: penpals, postcards, recipes, pet/cat stuff, food-themed
I know nothing about: ATCs, dotee dolls, scrapbooking
I could always use swapping supplies like postcards, notecards, stationary and small stickers.
Stuff I Like: kawaii (especially food-related), fairies, Tinkerbell, Pooh, Lisa Frank, vintage, retro, animals, cats, ducks, fruit, sweets
Stuff I Don't Like: Mary Englebreit, angels, cars, boats
