About Me

alt text alt text alt text alt text alt text alt text

My name is Sera. I am in my late 20's. I work in retail management. I have off and on been writing letters and postcards since I was in my teens. Because I work full time (often with overtime) I don’t have much free time, but I enjoy snail-mail, swaps, and pen-palling in what free time I do get.

I was born and raised in Hawaii. I like to go to the beach and hike with friends when I have a day off. My other hobby is thrifting, I like to go by myself so I can take my time looking at everything.

I generally take a break from swap-bot around the holidays to focus on the busy season at work and avoid long lines at the post office. I may not be very responsive during the holidays.

I take about 95% of my mail directly to my local post office to be posted but if I ever miscalculate postage please let me know and I will make it right.

I have a Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Drake.

I collect state shaped magnets and state themed shot glasses.

I loove Trader Joe’s and we aren’t able to buy anything from them in Hawaii, please let me know if you would be interested in a private swap for Trader Joe’s products! I’m willing to swap anything!!

  • I love postage stamps. I try to send with stamps instead of printed postage whenever possible.
  • I collect Corgi themes items, washi, memos, any thing I can find. I like other dog themed items too, even if they aren't corgis.
  • Kawaii/cute anything
  • Stationary
  • Washi tape
  • Stickers
  • Enamel Pins
  • Blind boxes
  • I’m a huge Pokémon fan. I would be happy to receive any Pokémon theme.
  • Disney merch. Post Cards, Letter Sets, Pins. My favorite characters are Lilo and Stitch, Pooh and Chip and Dale.
  • Tea!
  • Celestial themes
  • Ocean/Ocean animals themes
  • My favorite holiday is Halloween.
  • Vintage postage stamps
  • Anime/Manga I have loved anime and manga since I was a child, and I would say it has greatly impacted my adult life.
  • I don’t have a printer so I would be happy to receive address labels made by another swapper


  • Religious items, I do not practice any religion.
  • I am a vegetarian. I have been for around 15 years and eating red meat unintentionally can make me sick.
  • unfortunately, I don’t make ATC so supplies for them will be wasted on me
  • Superhero themes items
  • Diddl
  • plastic deco tape. Especially if it’s plain colored/metallic.
  • I'm allergic to Pineapples
  • Strong Scents! I have chronic migraines and I do not like perfume. Please don't send me samples or spray paper with scents.
  • I do not like the flavor of passion/hibiscus flavored teas. Pretty much any tea that looks red/dark pink when it is brewed.

Kawaii Swaps

Alt Text

Alt Text I grew up going to the Sanrio store in the mall by my childhood home and I have fond memories of going with my grandmother and begging her for stickers or some kind of stationery. I would say I’ve been a lifelong Sanrio fan girl!

I'm not real picky with Kawaii themes. I'm happy with most characters and themes!!

Alt Text I like almost all the Sanrio characters. I love Hangyodon, Sugarbunnies, Kuromi, My Melody, Cinnamaroll, Pochacco, Keropi, and Peckkle. I love many of the main characters friends, too. Pochaccos pi-chans and Cinnamaroll’s friend milk are my current favorites.

Alt Text My favorite San-X character is the Kiirotori duck from Rilakkuma.

Alt Text I love dog, frogs, ducks, birds, teeth, and ghosts themes!

Alt Text Halloween/Spooky

Alt text Sweets

Alt Text Lemons/Oranges

Alt Text Eggs

Alt Text Odd Kawaii themes

Alt text Love all Studio Ghibbli, Kiki's Delivery Service is my favorite.

alt text


alt textalt textalt text

I would prefer postcards to be sent naked (no envelope) unless the swap calls for it to be sent in an envelope.

Favorite post card themes:

  • Night cityscapes
  • City Facts
  • Animals
  • Moomin
  • Disney
  • Illustrations/art
  • Flowers
  • Vintage Cards
  • Anime
  • Harbors

Post Card dislikes:

  • I don't like post cards that have pictures of children or babies on them (I just find these weird)

Crafts and Hobbies

alt text I really love houseplants, not so much outdoor gardening. I live in hot and sunny zone 11 where many plants I attempt wilt after one day of not watering. I am very passionate about Hoya plants. I have almost 30 different Hoya cultivars and I'm always looking for more. alt text

Alt Text

alt textI like to cook but I hate doing dishes. Dishwashers are not very common in Hawaii.

Alt TextI like to sew, I love shopping for fabric. We don't have major craft stores in Hawaii so I go on a crazy shopping spree every time I get to go to Joanns in the Mainland US. I make a lot of clothing, small gift items, and pouches. I like to make cosplay costumes. I have never had the time to do quilting, but I would love to if I had more time.

alt text I have an embroidery machine that I bought with money I made selling masks during 2020. I always wanted one, but I could never justify spending the money, so I made it my pandemic goal to buy one. I have been making a lot of anime inspired embroidery designs in the process of learning the embroidery software.

Alt Text I like to go on hikes with my dog or my friends on weekends. I like to go jogging and go to the gym.

Comment: Aloha Sera, Thank you for the lovely postcard! Japan is high on our list to visit. I love the little hula girl stamp (I am fascinated by hula dance). Virginia Beach is lovely, visit the boardwalk and rent a little pedal carriage. Be sure to see the statue of King Neptune! Thanks for swapping, Sharon

Comment: Thanks so much for the cool 101 Dalmatians card. :) I found a set of Disney Frozen cards I bought a long time ago and am sending those out for these swaps, to use them up. Very nice cards! They are nice and thick and mail well. But 100 Frozen cards is a bit much. haha! I'm VERY ready for fall. Can't wait for soup in the slow cooker and biscuits in the oven! haha And cinnamon candles, pumpkin bread - the house will smell SO good. :)
