About Me

Last updated 3.12.22

Please reach out to me if you haven't received a swap from me.

Hello there! Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I'm a late-30s female from the Midwest. My interests include traveling, shopping, and reading.

Multiple Swaps: If I am your partner for multiple swaps, please feel free to send them all in one envelope/package to save on postage and shipping materials. Just make sure to label them correctly so I know which swap is for which.

Wishlist

  • Vintage Kawaii stationery (sticker sacks/flakes, memo pads/sheets)

Planner

divider

2022: Relying on Google Calendar.

2021: A planner wasn't even on my radar this year.

2020: Just carrying on blindly. No planner this year, physical or digital.

2019: I'm thinking of using something more digital for the new year despite being tempted by all the gorgeous planners out there.

2018: I went back to a very similar planner to that of the one I had in 2016. I find that it worked the best for me. This year I am concentrating more on content than the actually decorating. I do throw in some stickers and washi tapes but everything is more simple.

2017: This year I tried using a horizontal A5 Happy Planner. I love the look but I haven't been as consistent in decorating. IT WAS A FAIL!

2016: I have been consistent in decorating my planner (which is a simple Clementine Paper planner I bought from TJMaxx for $7.99). I didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I do now. I don't care much for decorating as I do writing it all down.

Kawaii

Since I am here mainly for the Kawaii swaps, I figured I ought to have a more comprehensive Kawaii section.

The short version is I like anything cute and girly. And I prefer not to receive anything weird, boyish.

I'm into older, vintage Kawaii but I know that they are either harder to come by or really expensive. I don't want to stress my partners out if they cannot send me vintage items (always a nice surprise but never expected).

I'm open to anything you would like to send my way. However, please note my "prefer not to receive" section below, especially in regards to counterfeit/knock-off items as they seem to be more and more prevalent these days.

divider

PREFER NOT TO RECEIVE:

  • PLEASE DO NOT SEND FOLDED MEMO SHEETS (or with obvious indention)
  • Kawaii that features real building/room/people
  • Shinzi Katoh brand
  • Daiso Kawaii
  • American Hello Kitty (items you find at Target, Walmart, Michaels, JoAnn, Hobby Lobby, etc.)
  • Zakka/Real life sticker flakes (unless it's dessert/food related)
  • Die-cut, coupon, or origami memo sheets
  • Non-branded, knock-offs & counterfeit Kawaii (including knock-off Sanrio items from Aliexpress)

Alwayz Kawaii have a really nice guide for telling if a sticker sack is genuine or questionable.

Washi Tapes

Unless the swap calls for it, I would prefer not to receive washi tape samples as I have a lot (both samples and tapes in general).

Likes

  • Favorite colors: mint, teal, turquoise
  • Lovely White/Orange Story stationery
  • Food with faces
  • Awawa Chan, Natto Chan
  • Vintage San-x characters

Dislikes

icon

Disney, Winnie the Pooh, Snoopy, and Diddl. I'm not really crazy about these characters.

Please no religious, academic, or holiday items. I'm fine with Kawaii Obake.

No magazine cutouts, scrap paper, foam stickers (I get way too much), confetti. Also nothing too masculine like mustache and sports. No ribbons or fabric tapes.

Currently no more journal cards & Project Life cards, please. Also no more ephemera and die-cuts. No academic stickers or dollar store stickers.

Junk in general.

Comment: Thank you for the large memos and your nice note. I think you're right about not so many large memos around. The last large memos I bought were puny, not regulation size.

Comment: Thank you for the large memos and your note. It's busy this week - we have a new toilet. We are gradually replacing critical infrastructure! It's a function of finding good people to work for us.

Comment: Thank you for the great swap. I hope things are a little calmer for you. Yesterday I shut down a Wordpress website because there wasn't content. Someone said maybe they should find someone more technical than me... I'm sure you might have helped me if I had anything to put on the site, if I needed help!

I rated you for the quick before the holidays swap and it's not posting to your ratings. I'll try again later.

hello happy holidays!

manders2280 on Dec 5, 2021:

Thank you for the sticker sack! So cute! It's not one that I ave and I've not had new ones in ages - I need to clean up my office and upgrade my electrical -- and write Xmas cards - before I buy new kawaii!
