So onward with part 2 of this post.
I was super excited to be swapping with Carmie from Flickr again as she knows my kawaii taste very well.
So heres the parcel:
I love it when people draw and decorate there parcels. It just brightens up your post you know? She also drew the cutest bunny girl on the back, but I didn’t take a photo.
It was like a kawaii anime paradise when I opened up this parcel. From Hamtaro, PreCure, Ruby from Jewel Pets, Totoro & Pikachu! I am a very happy bunny!
Aswell as Hello Kitty, Rilakkuma, Sugarbunnies and tons of kawaii knick knacks. I really love Carmies accessories too. She picks out the cutest of jewellery as well as making some. I have been truly spoilt! She also got the Lolita Hello Kitty, Ruby drawstring bag & tumbler especially made for me!
There is not a single item I do not like or am not to fond of. You know you have an awesome swapper when this is the case!
I really feel so blessed to be doing swaps like these. I remember when I first started out, seeing swaps like these was like a dream come true. And it still feels like that these days to. I would spend hours searching the net and staring at photos on Flickr, wishing that I could somehow participate! I must admit it takes some time to build up your reputation and you have to sieve out all the flakers. I have been flaked a total of 3 times and the feeling sucks so much! But once you meet some great people world-wide who wants to trade and respects the process of swaps it becomes very rewarding! It’s amazing that from a simple exchange you can brighten up someones day and make them happy.
So there we have it! Another successful swap. Stay tune for the photos of the swaps I’ve sent. I never upload any before the person gets it. Would hate to be a spoiler.

The Summer is always a busy season, so when things get a little “ahhh.” its great to get those pick me ups. Kawaii of course!
So here are two amazing swaps I’ve recently got through the post.
This incredible swap is from Michelle from Flickr. I’ve never had so many of my wish list items come true at once. I was ecstatic!
The Hello Kitty ghost line is one of my favourite lines by Hello Kitty. But so hard to track any down here in the UK. To get so much from the TuxedoSam goodies, some of my favourite anime plush, kawaii cats and to top it all off some amazing handmade stamps. I was made!
This is the second half of Michelle’s swap to me. (It started out as one giant swap but got cut into two sendable swaps haha.) Craft heaven! So many stunning moulds and clay. I’ve not been able to put it down! The Rilakkuma moulds are being used as ice cube trays: Im going to make some chocolates with them too. I also love the Sugar Bunny bag and Hello Kitty socks.
Everything was just perfect and very me.
I can’t currently show what I’ve sent her as she doesn’t know yet and I didn’t take a full photo of everything to date together.
So i’ll ask if I can borrow her photo when she takes it.
Be back tomorrow with part two of this post!

Just quickly popping in today with another swap post.
Recently I was lucky to be able to swap with the ever awesome Quinn from Flickr.
I was so excited to get her parcel through I mean look at it:
A fellow deco tape junkie! It just looks so adorable! Instant love at first sight. I shall definitely reuse this box, just far to cute not too.
Heres the surprise swap she sent me:
From Hello Kitty, Tuxedo Sam, Jewel Pets, Little Star Twins, Sugarbunnies, Hannari tofu, Japanese candy, deco tape, cute home wares, ghost stickers & sticker sacks! (I adore kawaii ghosts, especially the Hello Kitty Halloween range its in my ultimate wish list!)
My mouth hit the floor when I saw what she sent me. Everything is bang on perfect for me! This swap seriously has made my month in kawaii! She really has spoilt me rotten, I adore each and every item. You can tell a lot of thought & love has gone into this parcel. I really am speechless. This is the definition of a legendary kawaii swap indeed. I can only hope that mine will live up to this.
So I’m beyond a happy chappy right now haha. This swap was so fun doing as neither of us had a clue what one another was sending each other. All we had was a profile likes & dislikes and going on a whim. She really got me down to a “T”!
Well gotta dash now, I shall be back tomorrow to post.
