About Me

Hello! I'm a student in my 30s and a longtime mailartist and penpaller. I'm on here mostly for small "random items" type swaps that allow me to pick out treasures to send you from my dragon's hoard of stationery, etc., but occasionally will do more involved swaps.

Favourite Crafts

acrylic painting; my usual style involves heavily diluting the paint so the results look a lot like watercolours:

Arabian ibis

poetry; I'm influenced by modern and contemporary Canadian poetry, surrealism, language poetry, and Stuff I Found On The Internet.

Favourite Craft Themes

  • birds (owls, pelicans, crows and magpies)
  • ocean (jellies, sea stars, algae)
  • space (stars, nebulae, planets and moons)
  • fantasy and science fiction (original or myth-based)
  • extinct animals (stegosaurus, dimetrodon, pterodactyl)
  • cities (skylines, signs, cities at night)
  • colour schemes (blue & turquoise, neon green & black, purple & black, pink & brown)

Wish List

Handmade

  • hand-drawn or painted postcard
  • mail in a decorated envelope
  • handmade envelopes
  • handmade stickers
  • your poems or short stories
  • handmade necklaces
  • handmade hair bows

Clippings

  • simple vegetarian recipes
  • poems you like
  • promotional materials from art shows
  • Sudoku puzzles
  • paper and magazine cut-outs related to my interests as I've just started a traveler's journal. It has to be thin or regular weight paper; unfortunately I don't have a use for patterned cardstock or scrapbooking die-cuts.

Storebought items

  • kawaii stationery
  • colourful pens and Sharpies
  • adult colouring postcards (please only send the postcards, if possible; I have enough colouring sheets and books to last an eternity)

Odds and Ends

  • pretty much any stickers or washi samples or stationery you have lying around ;)
  • Some of my favourite characters that appear on stationery and stickers are Aggretsuko, Rilakkuma, Kuromi, Doc McStuffins, and the Tokidoki Mermicornos.

Tea (individually packaged, please)

  • with coconut
  • with vanilla
  • nettlewort
  • most teas, really, but please don't send mint or rooibos if you can avoid it

General Interests

Science, especially ecology.

Contemporary art

Poetry

Pop music, but for music swaps I'm interested in any musical genre.

Manga and comics, my respective favourites being Sailor Moon and Saga.

Kawaii. I'm not picky about it, so feel free to send any character or brand.

Angels

Thank you to @jannikinz , @Traceyk , @runswithscizzors , @dearguppy , and @mgallardo68 for angeling swaps for me.

Thank you to @RooBaRoo for my Swap-Bot icon.

Comment: Hi Beth ! I received your coloring card today and thank you for the Sharks coloring. Very very nice! You mentioned in your note to me. That you should try watercolor on the coloring PC's. I hope it works out for you. I've not tried it myself. I use gel pens on my coloring PC's & use the glitter & non glitter ones. But I love how they turn out with the glitter ones best.

Welcome to Sunshine Swaps!

Hi!! I saw your comment about emilysenvelopes on here! Yes her and I follow each other on Instagram, I made my Instagram account without realizing another person had basically the same name! We connected on Instagram and thought it was a funny coincidence. :) I haven’t swapped with her before though! I made my username different on swap bot to hopefully avoid confusion. Hope you’re having a good day 😊
