About Me

Update June 2014 -- I am under a great deal of stress at the moment and struggling with increased executive dysfunction and depression, so I have cut down on the number of swaps I am doing to minimise the possibility of mistakes. Please let me know if I do mess up a swap, and I will do my best to correct it.

I'm 33 and live in England with my husband and two female cats. I grew up in the USA, but I am now a dual British/American citizen.



I love getting post and will appreciate anything you send, especially handmade items. I am very easy to please, but if you are in any doubt about what to send me, please do not be afraid to ask. :)

I really enjoy crafts of all kinds, but I'm not particularly good at them. I do, however, put a lot of time and effort into my swaps, so please don't mistake my less than perfect creations for a lack of care! :)

I always mark swaps as 'Sent' after I have dropped them off at the post office or in the post box, but it may take some time for international mail to be delivered, so please be patient. I send everything by air mail, but sometimes post seems to take a very long time to reach its destination! Please let me know if you do not receive a swap from me and I will gladly resend.


CATS! I love anything featuring cats, for cats, about cats... everything cat related! I would love any cat-themed art or crafts, articles about cats, pictures of cats, and to hear about other people's cats.

All other animals, especially penguins (I collect penguin items), lemurs, ravens, magpies, bunnies/rabbits, sloths, red pandas, octopi, spiders, axolotls, and donkeys. Anything animal-themed will make me happy.

Stuffed animals! I love amigurumi, handmade soft toys, little clip-on stuffed animals, big animals, etc.

Sanrio characters. My favourites are My Melody, Chococat, Tuxedo Sam, and Badtz Maru.

Anything to do with pi (Ï€)


Anything medieval

Mario characters

The Muppets

Anything kawaii

Pre-Raphaelite art


Religions (I am an Anglo-Catholic Christian, but I love learning about other religions)

Icons of Jesus, the Virgin Mary or saints



Fairy tales

Tea and tea-themed items. I like all kinds of teas and love to try new flavours. My favourites are flavoured black and green teas. I would love either loose-leaf or bagged tea.

Strawberry flavoured sweets and strawberry-themed things

Flavoured coffees

Colourful things - my favourite colours are teal and purple, but I also like pink and jewel tones and basically all colours except neons/flureoscents



Anything related to Paris

Languages (I have studied French, German, a little bit of Spanish, and biblical Hebrew, but I am interested in all languages)

Other countries and cultures



Activism/equality issues (gender, disability, sexuality, race, etc.)


The macabre

Weird/esoteric/uncanny things (think H.P. Lovecraft)

Psychology/neuroscience/autism/other brain things (I have Asperger's Syndrome)

Board games



Comics/graphic novels


Pressed pennies


Medieval churches

Olympic mascots



The New Pornographers

Medieval and Renaissance music

Music boxes


Scented things (unlike most people with a very sensitive sense of smell, I like scented items and perfumes)

Grape-flavoured sweets/drinks (very hard to find in Britain!)

Lemon-flavoured sweets and sour sweets

Savoury snacks

Washi tape/deco tape


Jewellery - I love any animal- or nature-themed jewellery.

Yankee Candle wax tarts -- I especially like the woodsy scents and jasmine.


Gel pens

A book you think I would like. Paperback books (read but in nice condition books are fine :) .) Please see my Goodreads for books I own or have read.

A DVD you think I would like. I love foreign films as long as they have an option for English subtitles!

Animal Crossing! If you have New Leaf and want to swap friend codes, please let me know. :)

I also have a massive wishlist on Pinterest at: http://www.pinterest.com/megansr23/wishlist/ if you are in a profile-based swap with me and need more ideas of the types of things I like (pretty much everything!).

Postcard Preferences

I like pretty much everything, but I especially like the following:


Religious buildings (churches, mosques, synagogues, etc.) and religious sites

Historical sites

Any animals!

Fairy tales

Book-related postcards


Anything weird

Handmade postcards

I prefer postcards to be sent naked (written and stamped) when possible, but blank ones or written ones in an envelope as extras in a swap are nice too.


I am vegetarian, so I don't eat sweets with gelatine or other animal products (milk, eggs, and honey are okay) in them. Otherwise, I will eat/drink just about anything and I love to try new foods and drinks.

I would also prefer not to receive anything made with fur, leather, bone, or feathers (unless they are clean found feathers/bone) if possible. However, I don't like things to go to waste, so repurposed/recycled things are fine as are items from thrift stores/charity shops.

My cats are NOT vegetarians, so any animal products intended for them are okay. :)

I don't like erotica, pinups,or anything sexual (artistic nudity, particularly in classical art, is okay).

Note: all of these are just personal preferences, so please do not be offended if I've listed something you like. It doesn't mean we can't be friends! :)

Hi, you mentioned loving animals in general and axolotls in particular so I was wondering if you'd be interested in joining my Scales 'n' Tails group?

laurieburkett17 on Feb 25, 2015:

Hey! Saw you are an Animal Crossing New Leaf player. So am I. :) Let me know if you are ever interested in trading or gaming together.

We share the same birthday (different year).

Happy Swapping. ♥

Read - The Book of the lost things. I see on a other page you wanted a creepy book to lose some sleep over!

KSENiA on Apr 25, 2014:

Oh, I SO understand it. I returned to work after I was abroad, had 4 days of holidays at home and working those 3 days felt like a whole month without a stop. Ha-ha!

KSENiA on Apr 20, 2014:

Happy Easter!

Pixiewillow on Mar 11, 2014:

Thankyou so much for the tiny envelopes of joy you sent to me after my partner was suspended. They have been wonderful. I have opened a couple already and my daughter was thrilled to get to open one too. We are really enjoying them and a great start to the day. Many thanks for this PixieWillow
