Swapping has greatly diminished, but I've resumed handling admin for USA Happy Mail in March 2024.

I've "met" some wonderful people here and consider them friends. When swapping, I give hearts for TPG: thoughtfulness (yours), presentation (yours), and giddiness (mine). I don't need extras with swaps since I'm in a constant state of downsizing. I prefer quality over quantity. But if I send you extras, it's because I have something I think you can use (i.e., you're helping me downsize). I love decorated envies, especially when they feature your artwork and collage.

Note: I'm allergic to cigar/ette smoke, and anything dusty gets me sneezing, too. So please don't send smoke or dust my way.

Favorites

  • colors: red, grey, yellow, aqua; purple & orange together
  • places: πŸ’— Scotland & England; Japanese Tea Garden, San Francisco.
    Wish list: Ireland, France, Japan, Scandinavia
  • flat stuff: kawaii sticker flakes, colorful unused USA postage, personalized swap cards, holiday stickers, large kawaii memo sheets, cat cards, anything BTS (world's oldest fan here)
  • not-so-flat stuff: measuring spoons, gel pens, glue-dots, anything BTS :-)
  • creativity: learning how to make homemade pasta and Shoyu ramen (there's a LOT of prep for good ramen); sewing & wreathmaking; mail art. Love fabric pre-cuts and high-quality quilting cottons (Dashwood, Dear Stella, Art Gallery, Windham). I'm a certified fabric hoarder and just as much a fabric snob.
  • themes: retro botany, UK, woodlandia, outer space, UFOs, kawaii, k-pop, chalkboard art, echinacea, Shinzi Katoh cats, paranormal
  • book collections: Edward Gorey, James Thurber, Clare Turlay Newberry, Shel Silverstein, Stephen King, Brian Wildsmith
  • stationery: anything literature-themed, kawaii, fun pens, Eric Small Things
  • washi tape: Japanese, Scandinavian, Shinzi Katoh cats, kawaii, Eric Small Things
  • mail art: love original doodles and your artwork on incoming mail
  • animation: Shaun the Sheep, Wallace & Gromit, Howl's Moving Castle, Chicken Run, Bob's Burgers, Teen Titans Go, South Park
  • movies: About Time, Parasite, Being There, To Kill a Mockingbird, Sophie and the Rising Sun, Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), Thelma and Louise, A Killer Paradox
  • tv: documentaries, k-dramas/rom-coms, What We do in the Shadows
  • music: BTS, GOT7, TXT, NCT Dream, Stray Kids, &Team, Rain, Taylor Swift
  • Japanese kawaii: Favorite brands are Papier Platz, Saien, Sanrio, Doronbox, and Q-Lia. Kutusita Nyanko and anything Shinzi Katoh top my wish list. (Love Pusheen, also, but it's not Japanese.) I'm open to new designs, too!
  • animals: I'm an animal lover and on some days prefer them to people. Cats are my favorites (have 1), but I'm also a fan of donkeys, alpacas, Highland cows, foxes, owls, sheep, dogs, and unicorns (have 0).
  • spring: daffodils, dogwoods, stargazing, spring peepers
  • summer: fresh veggies, homemade lemonade, fireflies, Outer Banks
  • autumn: pumpkin farms, Halloween goth, fall foliage, crockpot chili
  • winter: snowfall, Christmas, quilts, birds at my feeder, puzzles
  • cute woodland designs: hedgehogs, owls, deer, raccoons, pines, foxes, botanicals, vintage camp/nature postcards
  • sinfully dark chocolate

Comment: Donna, your lovely swap arrived today. Thank you so much! Your letter was so enjoyable. I visited Scotland in 2019 and also explored many cemeteries. The world is such an interesting place, isn’t it?❀️ Your stationery is the cutest I’ve ever seen! Thank you also for the two wonderful bookish postcards, and for using such nice postage stamps and decorating the envelope.
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed the swap; it was actually fun preparing it for you. Scotland does rule! I really felt "home" there, if that makes sense. Have a great week and thanks so much for the rating. 🌷
