About Me

I will be finishing up the swaps I have in progress and taking a short break from swap-bot for two reasons. I have a lot if things going on in my life in the next few weeks that require almost all my time, and I've been having issues with my mailman/ post office and just want to find a solution to that and follow up on any sent swaps that never rated me to make sure they were received before I join more swaps. The rest of my swaps I'm currently in will be taken to the large post office by my new job to bypass my known problems. I live with my boyfriend of over four years in Florida (with entirely too many pets). I'm new to swapbot but have been swapping at another favorite site of mine, Postcrossing, for a while now. I also love writing long letters to my pen pals and am always looking for more. I love all candy except nuts and raisins. I'm not in college this semester but I'm a double major student of Biology and Foreign Languages- Biology because I love all plants, animals, and nature, and Foreign Languages because I love to travel and want to learn as many as I can (although I only am fluent in English and Spanish at the moment, I also speak a little Italian and Swahili). I love anything that shows me your culture or anything typical of where you live. Depending on your outlook on life, I'm either a very interesting person or a big hippie weirdo. Since I have so many interests and am a very positive person, I'm easy to please and will probably love whatever you sent me as long as it was chosen with thought.

Favorite Music

I really love any and all music, especially anything with pounding bass or really strong vocals. I like any artist with a great, powerful voice, especially Bruno Mars, Beyonce, Dolly Parton, Lady Gaga, John Mayer, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, etc. And for the bass I like Drake, Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Usher, Miguel, Pitbull, and a lot more. But I also like country music, rock, classical, reggaeton, bachata and any other Spanish music, reggae (Bob Marley is my favorite of all time), and most other music.

Favorite Books

My favorite author is Paulo Coelho and I love all his books but The Alchemist most of all. I've recently read and loved The Time Traveler's Wife, Anthem, Shutter Island, Chocolat, and many more that I can't think of at the moment. I could also reread Harry Potter infinitely. I also loved the Hunger Games series, The Secret Life of Bees, The Help... that's all I can think of right now.

Favorite Television

My boyfriend and I love to watch The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Key and Peele, Broad City, South Park, Family Guy, The League, House, Friends, Orange is the New Black, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, etc.

Favorite Crafts

Since I love to write letters I also love stationery, washi tape, postcards, paper, stickers- anything like that! I keep a Project Life scrapbook so i would be grateful for any cute cards, alphabet stickers (especially 3D) and ephemera to stick in that. I'm new to atcs and all those other crafts but was already a pretty good artist so I'm not terrible at them. I also like anything nature, plant, or animals related- seeds, botanical and zoological prints, little bits of nature. Since I love to travel I'd be happy to see where you come from and what's special about your life and your culture. I like anything mysterious (abandoned building, ruins and ancient cultures) and I love anything witchy or related to pagan religions because I'm a pagan.


My garden (it's BIG and I start a lot of unusual flowers and veggies under lights in the house so lots of work), I would love to grow cut flowers for a living someday and especially love zinnias, dahlias, and anything fairytale or cottage looking (foxgloves, canterbury bells). I love getting seeds! Including those from your own plants and garden. My other hobbies are too numerous to list but they include my pets, Post crossing, writing letters and pen pals, travel and adventure, Netflix, drawing, cooking, reading, horseback riding once in a blue moon when I get a chance, and my loving, petulant boyfriend, who luckily is willing to put up with a weirdo like me because he's one too.

Likes (wish list) and Dislikes

I love: chocolate, Gummi candy, anything fruity, tea, stationery and paper stuff, your culture and any languages you might know, postcards and souvenirs I can put on my desk, all types of people- tell me anything, no judgement, and I will not be offended by funny offensive slogans or artful nudity. I would LOVE to receive things typical to other cultures, yours or from somewhere you've traveled, but am especially interested in: Anything about ancient Egypt or any ancient culture, Anything related to Mayan or Aztec culture, Anything related to Cuba for my Cuban boyfriend, Anything related to Native American, especially the tribes that inhabited your area, Anything Jamaican or related to Bob Marley and the Rastafarian weed/pot culture there, Anything African. MY FAVORITE THKNGS TO RECIEVE AND BIGGEST WISHES: I can't find airmail labels here so I'll love you forever if you send me some. Or anything with a mail/ air mail theme, really. I also would LOVE to receive stamps (especially vintage or unusual) and washi tape including samples, something yummy, project life cards, high quality atcs, and postcards!

I hate: whole nuts (love peanut butter) and coffee... I think that's it. I am really easy to please.

A note about honesty and lost

Although I haven't been on here VERY long, everyone has been absolutely lovely so far and very generous and honest. I hope things will continue that way, and for my part, I won't say how important honesty is to me or that I will never flake because that's exactly what flakes seem to write on their profiles. But I will tell you that: 1. Many pagans (myself included) believe that everything that you put into the world will come back to you threefold, positive or negative. 2. Ratings speak volumes. For this reason, please CONTACT ME! if you feel your swap should have arrived by now. That way I can track it down if it was sent at the post office and be proactive about making up for possible lost mail sent through the mailbox. I'd rather resend a "lost" swap and have you receive both of them than make you wait several weeks to make sure a swap is lost before replacing it (in the case of mailbox mail, again... Anything large and higher cost is sent tracked at the post office and we'll track it down together). I will also do my best as time allows to track packages and send messages to people who may forget to rate to make sure my partners have received my swaps expediently. Whew, done with all the non-fun technical stuff! Happy swapping!

Washi wishes

Any japanese or MT tape really, anything with technical sketches of plants, animals, or anything (like the MT encyclopedia tapes), anything with space or the planets, animals, plants and flowers, insects, travel, mail, any shaped tape, lace, vintage, really any interesting patterns or phrases, neon colors, some samples of what you think are interesting tapes for someone who has a pretty good-sized collection.

Postcard wishes

Happy to receive blank cards in envelope swaps, but otherwise I prefer them sent naked and stamped and just a little mail-worn. I especially love map cards, unusual and exotic animals (like the monkeys that sit in the hot springs in Japan), a beautiful view, something indicative of your area and culture with a message about it from you on the back, non tourist cards to send out (impossible to find here), shaped cards, cards with a cutout. Whatever you think is an awesome postcard! But if you send it blank please don't be offended if I send it out after a few months of looking at it in my postcard box... it means I thought it was too beautiful for just me and my boyfriend to see and had to share it :)


Comment: Never received anything

Comment: I can understand life is busy and sometimes we need a break from swapping or penpalling but it's a pity you had this break before being sure every received your swap. It means I give you the benefit of the doubt, your letter could be lost and if ever someday I received one, I'll change my rating.

Comment: Nothing received.
TC rated for Wax Seal ATC on May 13, 2015
Comment: Shawnna Thompson: thanks for the resend. For the record, you told me you mailed it on March 26, but it's clearly postmarked April 7. Twelve days is a big discrepancy. I'm rating this a 3 because I don't think you ever really sent the original. You claimed to have a photo of it, but you declined to share said photo with me. Bottom line: You sent this weeks after the send-by date.
redwrapper rated for STUFF A SMALL FLAT RATE BOX #1 on May 11, 2015
Comment: I sent you a couple messages regarding this swap. It should have gotten to me by now, since it was supposed to be sent priority flat rate mail. You are partially suspended so I'm thinking you never did send the swap. I will rerate if you ever do send.
Rcinderella7 rated for pick 3 in 1 color "green" on May 11, 2015
Comment: I sent a message several weeks ago, and waited a long time for this swap. Almost 2 full months. Never a response to my message.
Comment: You have not responded, nor read my message. Please contact me so we can make an agreement on when you will resend this swap, thank you.

YooperHill rated for Wax Seal ATC on Apr 22, 2015
Comment: Send by date was 3/9. Without prompting she pm on 3/26 to say she was going to resend? ETA:On 4/4 no swap arrived so I PM'd her. She replied saying it was sent several days ago. ETA: 4/8 no swap arrived. We live in the same state, if it was mailed prior to 3/31, (the date Fry rated for the resend) it should be here by now. I rated a 1. ETA: 4/9 she said she would resend and track.. ETA: 4/22 no tracked swap ever arrived. An envelope showed up with a note that suggests it was the 3/29 resend.
Response: I took the initiative to let you know that my other partners' had already been pointed out to me as probably lost and resent accordingly. I sent you this swap twice and am very sorry that it never arrived, but it's a simple ATC and I have photos of both sends. It's crazy to think that among all my high dollar swaps I would flake on a piece of paper with a wax seal on it. I hope you receive one or both of them, one of my other partners already has, and rate me accordingly when and if you do. I would also like to point out that we have swapped before and you rated me a 5 with a heart...

Response: I would have appreciated a message letting me know that you didn't receive this swap before you rated me down.

Ryleighsmom rated for Just Because Postcard Swap #3 on Apr 20, 2015
Comment: Sorry for the delay in rating! The card took a while to arrive...the tape over the address part curled up and peeled off my street name so I guess it took the P.O. a while to figure it out. Oh well...it finally made it though!
Comment: Thank you so much for the delicious chocolates! I love them all! :)
kayetankt rated for Washi Rolls Swap on Apr 17, 2015
Comment: Hi Shawna, your package just came in the mail today. Thank you so much for all the wonderful stuff that you've sent! I would give you A MILLION hearts if I could. :') You made my day! I've never seen those tapes before! I really LOVE them and also the lip balm you sent. We don't have those here. The reason why I started the swap is to help everyone swap for different designs of washi all over the world. Everyone loves surprises so I thought that I might as well make it a swap.
