AboutMe I'm on a Swap Bot hiatus for a while!! I'm taking this time to focus on my pen pals. ^_^

I'm a quiet, shy 33 year old gal who is a massive fan of all things cute (kawaii, if you prefer~). I just started to swap actively about 2 years ago and have found it to be (mostly) rewarding! I love to read, watch movies, play Warcraft, craft, spend time with my boyfriend, swap kawaii stuff and penpal..

I love writing - I have been penpalling for 16 years now, and I can't imagine not having my penpals. They are my best friends and I love learning about their lives and their cultures. I love to send cute, decorated mail. A cute, colorful letter will always bring someone a smile. ♥ Mail

I am ALWAYS looking for new pals, so if you think we have something in common, please feel free to message me! I'd love to write to you. I'm addicted to long, decorated letters and would love to meet new friends all around the world (female only, sorry guys)! I love to get to know my pals and send small gifts every once in a while. :)

Comment: Wooow your zine looks so cool! What did you paint it with? I can't believe you totally hand made it. It looks incredible! Thank you for the very cute swap. Great job on the labels!
Response: Believe it or not, the paint is just cheapo watercolors! I also used Gelly Roll pens (the souffle and glaze ones). :) Now you know why I was like "blerggggh" about the creation process. XD

Hi there, I saw your post in the random bitchy thoughts thread in the PF. My problem is not the low cut, but that anything without sleeves usually has the bottom of the arm hole at my belly button. :p Anyway, when the neck is too low for you, try one size smaller. I bet that you'll find that the neck is nearly perfect. I can't really do it, but I'm in the minority and all my fat is in my belly and I'm fairly well endowed up top too. If your weight is on your hips or booty then I'm very confident you'll find some improvement. best of luck to you. And, please, don't feel like I am trying to take away your right to complain. That isn't it at all. I'm just trying to make your clothes shopping a little more pleasant. :D
