About Me


I'm taking a shortish break from swapping to focus on getting my new shop up and running! I am still doing them here or there, but if you see that I am becoming less active in groups that's why! If I need to hop on and do swaps in order to remain in groups please reach out to me and I'm happy to do that. Thank you!

Hello! I’m so excited to be here. I’m Sarah. I’m 33 years old and I’ve been doing Pen-Paling and collecting kawaii for well over a decade now! I’m an artist who enjoys working with many mediums and I’m eager to meet new friends and share goodies with people all over the world!

I presently reside in the beautiful state of Colorado with my Husband. The mountains have always called to me and I knew the first time I visited this place it was my home!

We have a boxer named Buzz, and though he is the sweetest, most precious soul on earth, he does shed. Please do not be alarmed if you receive a few random hairs in your packages. I do my best to keep them clean and clear, but it's inevitable that a few will sneak by my detection!

I edit my profile pretty frequently to reflect changes in my tastes and to add or remove things that I no longer want to swap or new things I'm excited about! My likes/dislikes are forever changing as I learn and grow and have new experiences!

Some random swap things

  • I strongly prefer my notecards to be sent BLANK with notes written on paper or other stationery and tucked inside. I love to be able to re-use cards and keep passing them along. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Roses! Roses! Roses!
