Hi I'm Dawn, this will be my second claim. I have sent 1 and received 1.
I live near Boston, USA.

I would like to claim Nirauan for:

some jewelry making materials
a couple soap molds
Maybe a surprise Smiley

I would be happy with a package from anywhere but the US

My list:

Kawaii Stationery! I like the kind with the matching envelopes in any cutesy Sax-X or Sanrio type design (tissue-san,nyanko nyanko cat, tare panda, doraemon, etc.)

Kawaii stickers, like "sack o' stickers"

Anything with an octopus or squid on it

craft book (doesn't have to be in English, but should have clear pictures so I can get the idea)

any cutesy/kawaii fabric

Scrapbook stuff not in English

Magazine not in English, any kind

Interesting shaped buttons

Really warm socks

Cute scarf

Bento stuff

Postage stamps with fish or sea creatures on them (used is fine Smiley )

Anything Wisty!

Thanks in advance!

If the swap's stalled I could claim octopusinclothing for cutesy/kawaii fabric, interesting shape buttons and a cute scarf but as I've sent to her before I'm sure she'd prefer someone else! Maybe it's just quiet because of the holidays Undecided

i wouldnt mind claiming her either.  especially since she really seems to dig on the japanese side of things.  which is very perfect for an american in japan. 

however, i wanted to get lovelygangster's package out first.

Awww thanks ladies! Whoever wants to claim is fine, I would gladly take another package from you Bea, or Tracy, I don't mind waiting for a package if you can't immediately send out. Whichever!

Cheesy Thanks again!

Okay, it's been five days since the list stalled on octopusincclothing, so I'm really feeling the need to step in a bit.

Either she'll have to add more to her list (maybe add some more European friendly things? It seems to be all Asian wants right now) or she'll have to take a partner from the US who has access to the types of things already on her list.

But in case, I'd like to see this swap start moving again. There's less than a week left for claims, folks.

Particularly love grape, lychee, yoghurt/milk, coffee and banana flavours.

Anything (other than toys/stuffies) related to my fav animals:
-seals
-eels
-snakes
-bats
-bears

Craft supplies:
-Freezer paper
-Leathery straps/long handles for bag-making
-Curved basting pins

Your local newspaper

I'd love some of the cheap maryjane/kung fu type shoes you get in Asian markets (Euro sz40) to decorate.

Home baking mixes

Pocky - Love them but have only tried two flavours (strawberry and chocolate) so any other varieties would be great.
