About Me

UPDATE: March 2020 I just got back to swap-bot after over 2 years of inactivity due to family issues. I sent all my swaps before I had the break, and rated all swaps I've received.

Hello, My name is Pei. I recently moved back to the US after living in Norway for a few years. I used postcrossing while I was in Norway to go home to no-empty mail boxes, and I collected a lot of postcards on the way. I joined Swap-bot because there was a Lantern Press postcard swap at the time, but I recently grew fond of the ATC swaps.

Aside from postcards, I also have a huge collection of washi tapes (around 1200 rolls), but there's always new ones popping up, so I'm thinking about collecting washi tape samples too.

Other hobbies I have are:

-decorating my to be sent postcards,

-I keep a planner/diary of a sort, but my friends call it an artbook, because I include my doodles, photos, and washitape/sticker decoration with the entries :P I love spending time on my book !

-Although I don't have much time for it anymore, I love cross-stitching! my favorite patterns are from a Korean brand called SODA

Favorite Music

I am open to most music (although I don't really understand acid rock) depending on my mood. My current favorite song is "Defying Gravity" from the musical "Wicked".

Favorite Books

I grew up on the Harry Potter series, so it is one of my favorite series. Otherwise, I mostly enjoy mystery (not supernatural) novels.

I also like graphic novels, my favorite is "Detective Conan" (aka Case Closed), and Red River.

I also enjoy reading historical fictions and non-fictions from both Eastern and Western culture.

Favorite Movies

I mostly like action, comedy or a mix of both.

Series-wise, I like the Harry Potter Series, and LOTR and Hobbit series.

I also enjoy Disney movies, my favorite movies are Zootopia, Tangled, The Little Merimaid, and Beauty and the Beast (2017).

Favorite Television

I love Elementary (watching it as I type) ! as well as: Criminal Minds, Person of Interest, Bones, well you get the idea :P

I also like watching anime. My favorites are:

UPDATE June 2020 recently watched My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!

I love it so much!

Detective Conan, Prince of Tennis, Sailor Moon, Hikaru no Go (Sai is my ultimate bias!), Attack on Titan, Kamisama Kiss, Fruits Basket, Inuyasha


I mainly collect/join these kinds of swaps:

Postcards: https://www.flickr.com/photos/peipostcard/collections/72157672254190763/

=Lantern Press=Lali Riddle=Gensodo=Snoopy Town=Asian Disneyland Resorts (Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo)=Rolf Lidberg trolls

Starbucks gift cards:=location or holiday specific

Washi tape samples:

=I have a bunch of washi, so I'm not too picky, just send something you like yourself.

=lately, I'm really fond of Taiwanese brands and Michaels washi (I don't buy Michaels because I don't like buying tapes in sets, They add too much to my collection in one go, but still like samples) tapes. Also, anything unique from your region would be great.

Rubber Stamps: =I like to hand carve rubber stamp

=interested in swapping hand carved rubber stamp prints (not the stamps themselves)

ATC: UPDATE: March 2020 I've tried a lot of different methods to make ATC cards. I was really into HD/HP before I had the break in 2017, but I am currently interested in making mix media collage, even though I still like doing watercolor atcs from time to time. Be reassured, I take my time in making all of my ATCs, and I hope to receive ATCs that you put your effort in as well.

July 2017 =I learned about ATC a few months ago. I'm trying out different methods and themes. I try my best to fit receiver's preference. I currently like to make HD/HP atcs using pen and watercolors, but I also like join swaps with new techniques. For embellishments I like using dried flowers from my garden, rhinestones, fabric, ribbon/lace, emboss powders, rubber stamps both store bought and hand-carved by myself in making ATC cards.

=my #1 favorites are carefully HD/HP ATCs = my favorite themes are:

Disney: Duffy and friends, Zootopia(Nick and Judy), Mickey, the Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Rapunzel

Movie/TV: Harry Potter, LOTR/the Hobbits,

Anime: Detective Conan, Prince of Tennis, Sailor Moon, Hikaru no Go (Sai is my ultimate bias!), Attack on Titan, Kamisama Kiss, Fruits Basket, Inuyasha (Sesshōmaru and Rin), or if you can make a picture inspired by Gensodo girls?

other: Snoopy, Garfield, Miffy, The Little Prince, Little Red Riding hood, the Smurfs(cartoon version not 3D), Lunar New Year, Wisteria, mermaids, whales, rabbits

style/technique: stain glass, watercolor

=if you are not a HD/HP artist, I like ATC made with effort. I enjoy themes like mermaids, fairies, anime characters, butterflies, roses, wisteria, vintage/travel (NO old photo with people (ie paper dolls from Tim Holtz) they scare me, sorry) , anything sweet/lovely. Anyhow, I rate hearts according to how much effort you put into the ATC , not extra goodies.

=Dislike: I'm not fond of thin ATCs that can bend into a U, or sticker/photo/picture slapping. Please make your card something you'd like to receive yourself. Also, please don't send me coffee, tea bags, or other edibles as extras.

=Note: please make sure you have sufficient postage on your envelope. I once had a swap that cause the mailman to come to my door to collect the owed postage. It was troublesome for me to find change on the spot and for him to come to my door (we don't have door to door delivery service).

CookieMomster78 rated for GAG: MY Disney Faves on Jul 3, 2020
Comment: Thank you for Tigger and Thumper! I appreciate that you sent one of each medium too. Your hand drawn ones are always my favorites! However, the background of Thumpers mixed-media paper collage is mesmerizing too! Love ‘em both!
Response: I'm glad you like them. I actually let my wrist wander a little while drawing tigger, so his jaw is a little longer and bigger than I anticipated. But still looks like him, so I didn't try to fix it :P
