I am on swap-bot to make friends and have fun. If you would like to correspond with a friend from Hawai'i, please start by watching these two short videos and tell me what you think of them:
I love piano, ukulele, and stringed musical instruments from different cultures., I am interested in making/restoring ukulele. I make lei and jewelry using seeds from Hawaiian plants.
I welcome pen pals from the Hawaiian Islands who want to share friendship. I currently have tons of mainstream writing stationery, so no need to send more to me, unless you have written a pen pal letter to me on it. Email pen pals from anywhere on Earth are also nice. I am more interested in forming friendships than accumulating stuff. I would like to find some like-minded people.
I love to cook. I experiment with adapting recipes for use with local Hawaiian ingredients. I grow many kinds of tropical fruit and like to use them in recipes. I cook mostly vegetables, fruit and whole grains. I don't cook with dairy, eggs or meat. I have too many vegetarian cookbooks, so no need to send more to me.
My husband collects retired license plates from all over the world. They don't need to be old, just no longer on a vehicle. If you would like to add to his collection, please send me a message to see if he already has a plate from your area.

I love the Grinch Christmas card you sent for the Christmas card tag - US only. I knew this from you when I saw the pineapples in our mail! That and all of the goodies you enclosed, it is all so very special. Thank you so much.
Just wanted you to know how much I am enjoying the Envelope Advent Countdown. The global Christmas season facts and the jokes are going into my December Daily journal. I'm at #17 as of today.
Thanks so much for the adorable felt food pancake from my LSRUS July wishlist. I love it!
Thank you so much for the wishes you sent via the LSRUS wishlist. I love the pelican bookmark! Did you draw it? Or who is the artist?
