About Me

alt text !

Aug. 2018-I'm going to be taking a break from SB for a while. It has been SO fun though- thank you EVERYONE who I've swapped with or crossed paths with. Someday I hope to be a swapping fool again!! :P


Thanks for checking out my profile. My name is Emily and I'm still pretty new here, but have been happily busy with swaps, crafting/creating, and making new penpals every day since joining! I always send forth my best work, and if you do the same and are interested in private swaps, please let me know!

Bio Stuff

I'm a busy single mom of two teenagers. Kinda nerdy- love to read and learn, love classical music and going to the symphony. I listen to NPR, but no other radio or TV. I like many video games, especially RPGs that I can sink hours into. Love Tolkien and other fantasy writers. I don't use social media/facebook. I put pics of my mail on IG, but don't really "socialize" on it. I don't create or partake in drama of any sort. I do not get offended or angered much at all. I try to live mindfully and follow the Middle Way. I practice what I call "moderate minimalism", except when it comes to office and craft supplies LOL. If I could retire today, I would! I'd garden and read, and write, and draw, and sew, and paint, and just watch the clouds go by! But alas, I am only in my 40s and have plenty of workdays yet.... booo.

Sending and Rating

I always send, send on time, send my best work and rate when swaps are received. I would love the same from all of you! However, I know this is a site for having fun and being creative, so I'm not gonna stress over a few days. Just keep in touch, that's always best.


I have a postal scale and weigh my own envies. I have been an eBay seller since 1999 (yikes) and stay very familiar with USPS rates and regulations. With that said, if you receive postage due, I want to hear about it, not only to send you a surprise something, but to learn from my errors.Thank you!


I'm really easy to please as I have not been doing this long enough to have a lot of specific needs. However, here are a list of things I am fond of:

  • Non-touristy postcards. They just aren't my favorite

  • Letter paper/stationery and unused US stamps

  • Nice stickers, prefer not puffy though! They make my mail too thick!

  • Die cuts and punches (even just basic shapes)

  • Stamped images, interesting papers for collage

  • Vintage illustrations cut out from books, magazines

  • Rain, rainy days, rain imagery, stormy weather, clouds...

  • Animals, especially cats, owls, otters, llamas, bugs, bats, sheep, birds, ok basically all animals

  • Flowers, anything floral. Love daises, poppies, sunflowers

  • Plants and succulents- love imagery of potted plants and cacti. Love shamrocks/ four-leaf clovers

  • Butterflies, birds, dragonflies, anything that flies!

  • Celestial themed- sun, moon, stars, planets too!

  • Fantasy things- Dragons, fairies, gnomes, mermaids

  • Books, book related- pictures of books, bookmarks

  • Any Buddhist or Hindu images, ie Buddha, Shiva, Vishnu etc

  • Colors I'm not picky about at all! Love all color - you choose!


I don't really have any dislikes, but I do my very best to send "Happy" mail to people, and hope to receive the same! Like so many swaps say, send something you would like to receive!
