Hi! I'm a college student studying in the bay area. I'm new to this website, but I love giving gifts/doing swaps. I'm an artist so I'll be sure to draw something on the envelope! Check out my work: http://artbrownie.tumblr.com/
If you swap with me, I'll be sure to rate, and If I've swapped with you, I'd be really happy to know if you received the package and liked it or not ^^
Likes: Cute things, forest/animal themed things, Fruit flavored things, Japanese-themed items, Black, Green, Oolong, etc teas, (but no peppermint please!) Stickers (more info below), Charms, Chocolate, Useful things! Kawaii characters, Gaming, Gummy candy, chocolate, hard candy, small birds and aquatic life!
My favorite colors would have to be...turquoise, teal, or mint ^^
I collect marimo moss balls!
In my spare time, I do oil and acrylic painting, as well as digital painting (I use an intuos 5touch and Photoshop cs6.) I also make jewelry and small charms out of polymer clay, and am considering opening up an etsy shop or something soon! I don’t do much scrapbooking but I love wrapping gifts. I can always use sticker sheets and sticker flakes, memo pads, beads and charms, stationery, gelly roll pens (sakura is my fav brand,) ink stamps and stamp pads, calligraphy ink, postage stamps and washi tape. I own a lot of stickers, washi tape, and Japanese snacks, and some knicknacks I picked up from Japan from my trip two years ago.
I like pop, alternative, r&b, but most of all, jazz music. My favorite artists are similar to nujabes.
I recently went to a TOKiMONSTA concert in Santa Cruz!! soooo happy. she was amazing (:
Big Game of Thrones, Parks and Rec, and Adventure Time fan! I've also been watching anime since I was like...7. You can see what I've watched here: https://hummingbird.me/users/reshma_zachariah
I like foreign movies and Japanese dramas, but i'm not that into kpop or kdrama :') sorry!
I really enjoy stationery like memo pads, cute shaped sticky notes, washi tape, bookmarks, and especially sticky memo flags shaped like animals ^^ as well as pens, pencils, etc because I keep a MUJI planner (A5 size) and cork board from Daiso for daily tasks and stuff.
Also recently got into collecting kawaii sticker flakes! I don't have that many right now, but I like the idea of having a large variety in the future. Not sure what i'll use them all for though, possibly scrapbooking!
I enjoy cosmetics samples and tea samples. I shop at skin food and the face shop occasionally (korean cosmetic stores) and have a couple samples from there to share ^^ I also really enjoyed receiving sweet teas and fruit infused teas, although I also enjoy simple black and green teas -- I always have a use for both of those. I'm open to try new things! So far one of my favorites was an Apple Cinnamon flavored tea from Germany. Love the fragrance!
And as always, with letter writing comes a need for postage stamps, envelopes, and letter writing paper. I prefer A5 :)
I'm super into sticker flakes! Almost too into them... If I enter a kawaii swap with you, I intend for you to send me kawaii/asian brand sticker flakes, not teacher reward stickers, etc :( I'm not a particularly picky person, but i'd rather not receive things with images of people on them (realistic or cartoony) although I'll probably just swap them with someone else if I do receive them ^^ that said, I really like the animal and food sticker flakes, or anything with a cute face on it (: I like the realistic sticker flakes as well, just not with any people pleasee
Some of my favorite Sanrio/San-x characters are: Little twin stars, Oyasumi Bakura, Tenorikuma and Rilakkuma (I love the happy natural time series c: )! I also like any food with faces (like gudetama) and another of my favorites are pusheen and molang (although it's not necessarily Japanese kawaii) in general I'm happy to receive anything c: I can also use anything with mushrooms on it
