I would be extremely grateful for any ephemera related to The Year of The Ox. I'm trying to create a layout, and so far all I have been able to find are US Postage stamps, and a postcard that a very kind swapper sent me before I even thought to ask. If you have Year Of The Ox anything, or Chinese themed ephemera that you would like to share, I would absolutely love to have it!
If you haven't received a swap from me, please let me know. If you sent a swap I haven't acknowledged yet, please let me know that too.
If you are a swap recipient and haven't gotten your swap yet, please message me prior to leaving a 1 rating. It's either on its way, or possibly lost in the mail.
If I haven't rated your swap yet, it's because I haven't gotten your swap yet. If you think you sent something I should have gotten by now, please message me and let me know so I can keep a lookout for it.
If you are a swap participant trying to figure out what to send me for a swap, feel free to read on below for the specifics.
Thanks for stopping by!
I love pens, paper, stationary, post cards, postage stamps, markers, pretty much anything related to correspondence.
I am obsessed with junk journaling and travel scrapbooking.
I have no artist talent to speak of, so I won't be joining swaps that require you to make something. I'm fine with receiving handmade items, but I wouldn't want to disappoint anyone with something I've created.
I love all kinds of washi tape, all kinds of stationary, all kinds of paper and note cards, all kinds of post it notes.
I would love anything with a narwhal, Totoro or hot air balloon, clock, typewriter or carousel on it. I have no idea why I'm obsessed with these things.
I also collect shaped paperclips, envelopes, tiny houses (on washi tape, charms, postcards, drawings, whatever), fairy garden supplies, all kinds of ephemera but especially vintage, tags, pockets, die-cuts, pretty much anything flat that I can stick into a junk journal.
I am not fond of:
There is no bad Washi tape, but if you happen to have some in your stash, I would be especially happy to get anything with:
Overall, I prefer patterns over solid colors. If you have a style or pattern that you think is unique to your area (i.e. did not come from Michaels, A.C. Moore or Target) I'd love to get that as well.
And just for full disclosure, some themes I'm not interested in at all include:
Most of the stickers swaps I have signed up for are sender's choice, so by all means, send me your choice.
But I would be especially glad to get stickers that are decorative (think interesting shapes, swirls and designs rather than cartoons or pictures of animals).
I would be especially grateful for stickers depicting the following:
Please, please, please, please do not send me touristy/destination/Greetings From type postcard unless it is a place you are actually from.
I've been participating in a lot of postcard swaps that involve sending blank postcards, and overall, I like to think I'm not too picky, but I keep getting similar touristy postcards that I don't know what to do with, other than send them off to someone else who probably also doesn't want them.
I knew it was bad when I sent off a touristy postcard in a swap and got back the exact same postcard in another swap from a DIFFERENT person a few weeks later.
I would LOVE to get postcards that feature artworks, carousels, lighthouses, Space, pretty much anything listed in my favorite themes area above. Fpr me, weird, creative and beautiful postcards beat tourist postcards any day of the week.
I read and collect:
Sorry, but these aren't for me:
I'm way better at collecting craft materials than using them.
I buy nice things and then don't use them because I want to save them because they are so nice.
I buy stuff I don't know what to do with just in case I someday know what to do with it.
If I do finish a craft project, I tend to give up the craft entirely after that.
