About Me

I'm Skeffiboo, or Sarah in reality. My colours of choice are Pink, purple, bright green, turquoise and RAINBOW! =D I don't really dislike any colour though. Apart from white chocolate and dark chocolate, I am open to trying anything food-wise! I particularly like sour sweets, boiled or gummy, and if you can find floral gums or cherry lips, they are much loved childhood favourites of mine, but honestly, anything would make me really happy! =D The following is a list of some of my favourite things:

  • Stickers
  • Mail/Postbox related things

I do love Kawaii things, particularly toys and plushies, Bento supplies and stationary (especially stationary!)

I'm a craft enthusiast, I love making silly colourful jewelry and accessories which I occaisionally sell in my Etsy shop.

I'm incredibly easy to please, I find loads of things pretty and I collect almost anything. I like all types of photography, all forms of art and crafts, I love handmade things, I love nature (flowers, foliage, animals, insects) I like fantasy stuff.. I can't think of anything I don't like really o.O

What would really make my day

  • Scrapbooking goodies like brads, tags, cardstock, chipboard bits, transfers etc

  • Kawaii letter sets and writing paper, cute envelopes, sticker sheets/sacks, deco tape

  • Korean journal/diary goodies like stickers, page markers etc

  • Something handmade. I absolutely treasure handmade items, whatever it may be, and whatever your skill level. It makes me so happy to receive something that someone has invested time and effort into making.

Favorite Books

I love reading Autobiographies and anything with a fantasy/mythical twist. I love old fairy tales and fables, especialy those with a dark edge to them. I adore Phillip Pulman's books and still love reading The Deptford Mice trilogy even though I'm probably a little too old for them :p I also love graphic Novels. My favourites are Neil Gaiman's Sandman series, Sei and Nightmares and Fairytales but my all time favourite is Tank Girl. :D

Favorite Movies

My all time favourite films are Pans Labyrinth, Mirrormask, The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, Moulin Rouge, Waterhorse, Spiderwick Chronicles, Tank Girl, Doll Master, Minimoni - Cake Adventure, Orphanage, Happiness of the Katakuris, The Hole, Juno, 28 days/weeks Later, Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz.. Ok .. too many to list, I like a lot of films >.< Basicaly, anything Anime, Fantasy, Asian Horror, Pixar/Dreamworks, Jim Carrey and lots of kids films :D

Favorite Crafts

Argh! I'm not sure there's a craft I don't like! I am very much into papercrafts currently, I am hoping to one day buy a stamp making machine so that my life may be complete =P I love zines in all shapes and sizes, I love making them and receiving them! Some of the zines I have received from senders on here have been amazing and I have treasured them all! I am very fond of mail art also, and adore any post related project such as PostSecret, More Love Letters etc. I'm totaly addicted to pretty paper and cardstock, which I totaly intend to use for crafting one day, when I can bear to cut it :p I love wire work, pottery, painting, drawing, stamping, scrapbooking, making cute little toys and accessories.. I think most of my tastes are more heavily geared towards the cutesy style, but I still like to sit and do a nice pastel picture occasionaly! You name it! :D

Favourite Characters

  • Pucca Club
  • Doraemon
  • Mashimaro
  • Keroppi

  • CareBears (80's)
  • Badtz-Maru
  • Cinnamoroll
  • Disney Stitch

If it has an oversized head and big eyes, I'll probably love it!

Favourite manga characters: Riiko from Absolute Boyfriend. Nanai, Guru and Pritz Rang from One Fine Day. Airi and Aram from MeruPuri.

**Please Note**

It's a shame that I have to write this but I'm finding it neccesary.

My local mail service has seriously gone to the dogs. I swap a fair bit on here and I like to shop online too and I am repeatedly having things delivered to me rediculously late, damaged, opened with things missing or not turning up at all. I am worried that the mail I am sending is going to be treated in the same way so PLEASE, If there is anything wrong with a swap from me, get in touch! I have also had a package left on the front doorstep in full view of the street (this was my brand new mobile phone!!) I also get mail for completely different addresses and I repeatedly get mail which people have paid extra to send as "signed for" and the postman has just put it through the letter box without getting a signature! I am going to start a diary of these things and log a complaint EVERY single time.

I always package things safely and securely. I dont fold things, I would never send something broken or squashed. Most of all, I would never flake!!

If you have an issue with something you have received from me, drop me a message and I'll see what I can do to sort it out for you. I don't want to get bad ratings for something I have no control over. Thanks guys xxx

Dislikes

Hmm, I have some pretty strange dislikes.. *I HATE shrek, and anything Shrek related. *I have a massive spider and balloon phobia. Not that you would send me a spider or an inflated balloon... would you? *I don't like spicy stuff. Not that you would send me your leftover curry either... *I just can't stomache eating mushrooms, but I do find them very pretty to look at! *Disney princess overly girly things. I have my favourite characters, who doesn't? I'm just very fussy when it comes to merch.

thegypsie on Apr 4, 2018:

I got your letter and really enjoyed the lovely goodies and learning about you. I will be writing back soon. :)

Happy Birthday!

Hey there was wondering if you ever got my letter that I angeled for the I <3 Penpals swap you were flaked on. I sent 2 years ago and in checking my out going angels, I never got a response back and I see you still show I <3 Penpals as still flaked with no angel. Let me know, thanks for participating in my swap.

I would like to angle "I <3 PENPALS" swap for you. I know it is an old swap, but I was reviewing profiles before I have to assign swap partners tomorrow and saw your flakers. Tsk tsk, I hate being flaked on too.

Just FYI, user @laurenvnzl , who owes you a swap from awhile ago, is back online and swapping. Perhaps if you contact her, you can get your swap finally!
