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
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".
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.
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).
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: 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:
=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.
=recently, I'm really fond of Taiwanese brands and Michaels washi 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)
=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:
Movie/TV: Harry Potter, LOTR/the Hobbits, Zootopia(Nick and Judy), Mickey, the Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Rapunzel
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), Year of Dogs (Lunar New Year), Wisteria, mermaids, whales, rabbits
style/technique: stain glass, watercolor
=but if you are not an artist, I also like ATC made with different materials like fabric, lace, and anything with sparkly rhinestones and embellishments. I enjoy themes like mermaids, fairies, anime characters, butterflies, roses, wisteria, vintage/travel (no old photo with people though, they scare me a little, 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.
=I collect pressed pennies from places I visit. Mostly from a few US states, European cities, and a few Japanese ones.
= I have all almost all Snoopy Town pressed pennies from Japan up till 2016, a few Hello Kitty and Japanese characters from Universal Studio and other Japanese locations.
= M&M pressed pennies are lovely too! I have all New York and London M&M's World pennies.
=I think I have all WDW (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Downtown Disney) up till 2016, Disneyland (Anaheim) and California Adventure, Disneyland (Tokyo) and DisneySea uptil 2016
