❤️Books

🖋Paperclips and binder clips I love cute paperclips and binderclips and I use them often. I like collecting them too. I’d love to receive a few normal or unique ones :).

🖋Tea I like most teas but lately I really wanna get some peach and or apricot tea. Oh and I tried a vanilla black tea at a friends place and I loved it so if you’ve got some vanilla tea send me some please :)

🖋BOOKS: I added a link to my goodreads account, then you can see what I’ve read.

🖋Craft supplies ❤️ Lace, pens, watercolour paints/brushes embelishments

🖋Washitape: -beige -vintage vibes
-science themed -with writing on it. -Cute -botanical

🖋POSTCARDS CHECK the above themes for postcard ideas^^ also I prefer them written on and stamped! I keep them all and it’s so much more special when there’s something sweet written on the back!

🖋If you put time into what you send me, I'll probably love it! It's all in the details.

🖋Letters: Tell me a little about yourself and how you are. I love meeting and getting to know new people!

🖋Sketchbooks, Ideally I'd need a paper that can withstand watercolor. But I will absolutely love any sketchbook in the paperblanks brand style.

🖋Movies: RomComs, hero movies , the classic Barbie movies are my guilty pleasure ,Thriller movies but not horror, Disney and Mess with your mind movies! like inception, the butterfly effect etc... Also, I love almost all studio ghibli movies: the cat returns, castle in the sky, howls moving castle, ponio, spirited away, naussica and I think kikis delivery service is my favorite!

🖋Notecards: Anything that goes with the themes I've mentioned above. Or anything really I use notecards often for swaps ..

🖋Journals: I really LOVE journals, small or regular book size, so not too big. I have a collection of around a dozen that I've accumulated over the years. Each of my journal books have a purpose, they all have something written in them. Although not all of them are full. Currently I have a dream journal, letters I might never send journal and my regular journal plus a couple books for writing ideas or poems or stories.My favorite is a "junk journal" I got as a gift from a swap, I love looking thru the pages.

🖋Wax Seal: if you’ve got any mini ones, or I really want to get a bee seal :)

🖋SNACKS: chocolate but also chips and nuts. My favorite chocolate is black chocolate mixed with something. I like mint tasting foods, black licorice, sour candy, orange flavored sweets... And I can eat spicy foods. Also! I'm allergic to walnuts, not terribly but it'll make my mouth itch.

🖋Shows: Sherlock Holmes!, Pretty little liars, Once upon a time, Switched at birth, Sailor moon (The older version!), Lately I've been watching Hunter X Hunter & fruits basket! Love is blind, How I met your mother.

🖋MUSIC: Musicals, jazzy and acoustic covers, Disney, Marianas trench Dodie Clark, 1D, and just a bunch of specific songs like Iris by the goo goo dolls.

🖋Youtubers: Gabriel Brown Or black gryph0n, Jamie Jo (BananaJamana) , Pear fleur, DissociaDID , Juicy ink 💛 ,Safiya Niggard, Rachel Makesy Hearthwitch Psychology in Seattle

COFFEE

POSTSTAMPS? (like stamps but if you send stamps tell me how you keep your stamps and why you like them.)

SKIN PRODUCTS ex: facemasks (Unfortunately I have really sensitive skin and can’t use most skin products but if you do send some they’ll probably go to my mother :) )

GLITTER WASHITAPE

ART & ME

✏️It couldn't be my profile without a bit dedicated to art 🎨

-I basically studied art for 3 years in college and although I've always loved crafting!

-I like to try all mediums. I've discovered I really like gouache and watercolors (Im currently using the Sakura Koi watercolors and I made a mini Daniel smith palette) I don't often draw in graphite Cause it’s messy but it’s definitely fun! 🙃. I really like ink and fine liners. My style is very varried, take a look at my instagram if you'd like to see ;). I received a schminke watercolour pan from swapbot and I treasure it!

Swap-bot

I love being a part of this community, I like making just as much as I like receiving packages. Being on swapbot a little while, I've discovered that I'm actually a little picky. It takes visible time and effort for me to really get happy with a package or letter. It's all in the details ❤️. But when you really succeed in making me overjoyed I'll be sure to send you a thank you letter, maybe with a little surprise too. And if I feel like you took my profile into consideration for your package you'll usually get a heart.

I usually rate when I receive the swap. Sometimes I will forget to do it right away but I will always rate. I keep my non rated swaps in sent and archive my rated swaps, so then I can always keep track of what I haven't rated.

I will definitely contact you if there are any complications on my part and I usually respond quickly to messages. I really don't mind if you're running a little late but be sure to let me know.

P.s Add a little star with a C in it on your package if you read my full profile. Thanks if you did and hope you have an excellent day! :)

Comment: You are certainly very creative, this is possibly the most unusual letter I've ever received for a swap - I was not very happy with the very dark background of your paper and the dark ink. Very difficult to read.!! but I truly appreciate you creativity.
Response: Hi! Sorry about the readability!! I probably won’t be doing dark on dark again 😅. I’m glad you appreciated the oddness if the letter lol!

Comment: Thank you so much for the effort you put into this piece. And that you made it into a little book? Amazing! With a little work you could publish it officially one day, I think you should. Thank you for introducing me to Tess, and I truly hope that the stories of little girls like her will always be remembered.
Response: Im so glad you liked it!! I’d really like to publish a book some day, thanks so much for saying that I could ❤️
