Looking For
* ATCs
* Blank Penguin and Hedgehog postcards
* Does anyone have an unused postcard of Joy from Inside Out?
* Wonder Woman notecard, postcard, or stamp.

FYI 8-15-17: I am pursuing a new opportunity, and anticipate cutting back on swapping until things settle down a bit. All swaps received by 9/22/17 should be rated. Message me here or email me at atychiphobia@hotmail.com if you have questions.

FYI 8/26/17 I have a new mailing address as of today. My Swap-Bot address should be updated and mail should be forwarded. Please let me know if you have questions.

My mail is being forwarded, but everything received by 9/22/17 should be rated.

10/4/17 Struggling to keep up, hope to come back and swap actively soon. Messages and apologies sent to partners. Grateful to @knitterofhats for picking up Move It!

Random

In the beginning was The Word.
My family enjoys Nertz and Dutch Blitz (card games).
We have an adorable Australian Shepherd dog named Allie.
I've kept a journal since Kindergarten.
I used to run a mail delivery service for my parents, grandma, and neighbors.
I love playing volleyball.
Milk may be my favorite beverage. Grape juice is a treat.
Speaking of treats, my aunt makes the best white chocolate raspberry cheesecake.
Sunglasses are my semi-permanent accessory.
I've been trying to get out and walk or bike every day. I managed 75 miles in June. Didn't make 100 in July (just 81), so still aspiring for a century!

Preferences

  • Colors: most shades of blue and green. Lavender and burgundy are also nice. I don't care for pink.
  • simple & quiet > loud & glitzy
  • 100% cotton socks.
  • Items helpful for correspondence are welcome, such as postcards, stationery, envelopes, return address labels, pens (love Pilot V5 and G2 ), postage (new or used).
  • No Thank You: Please save pink items and stickers for those who will appreciate them more (to be clear, not me! ☺)

A note on pink : several thoughtful swappers have apologized for using pink stationery to correspond. Please do not feel you must limit yourself if pink is one of the ways you comfortably express yourself. I am very happy for you to write on and use pink items, I just have no interest in using them for myself.

Themes I Enjoy

  • Thoughtfulness: Tell me about your attachment to the item you're sending. Where did you find it? How is it significant to you? Why will I like it?
  • Connection: I'd like to hear about the people who are important to you.
  • Lighthouses
  • Reading/Writing/Books/People engaging in these activities (Libraries)
  • Aussies (Australian Shepherd dogs)
  • the beautiful earth, nature, landscapes, sun, moon, stars
  • Happiness
  • Language and Words (such as the same word in many languages, or a greeting in your heart language). Translation appreciated!
  • Something that represents you or your story. Some examples I've received: a postcard of the church the sender was married in, a new year's card from the sender's sister, a map of the sender's city, an image from the sender's favorite movie.
  • For postcards, I look at the text before the image. I'd rather have an interesting message accompanying a lackluster photo than a stunning picture with no commentary.

Off the Shelf

Some of my favorite

Books Les Mis. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. Quiet. The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society. The Hunger Games. The Night Circus. Heidi. To Kill a Mockingbird. The Hiding Place. Books by Malcolm Gladwell.

Comment: Love all the goodies you picked to send! The owl washi (on the olive green background) is perfect, do you recal where you got it? I'd love to get a whole roll. Also, the peacock card is gorgeous!
Response: Punch studio has some really lovely cards! The washi sample was from another user, @bhindblueeyes. I will ask her if she remembers!

Comment: Sounds like you had a lovely day! I am also in the middle of thinking about changing jobs. I get the uncertainty and anxiety of change. My fav thing about playing Apples to Apples is seeing what I "am" when its done. Using the green apple cards to describe your personality. It's a hoot!
Response: Haha, yes! I especially chuckle when you get two semi-contradictory cards, like Friendly and Tough.

Comment: I'm sorry this took so long to rate. I really need to remember my messages better. Thank you for passing on such a lovely owl to me.
Response: No worries! I am glad that it was easily found. Thank you for taking the time to look. I am glad you like the owl!

Comment: Thanks for the fun ATC! Such a cute one! I hope you try making one soon, I bet you can do it! I just tried my first one for this swap too. I've always wanted to visit Peoria IL, because everyone always talks about it! It must be famous for some reason. Peoria AZ actually has higher population, but we aren't known for anything. Haha. Basically we are just a town with tons of houses and chain restaurants/stores. Not too exciting, but a nice, convenient place to live!
Response: My swap-bot anniversary is approaching, maybe I'll try it then, haha. Maybe not... :) Peoria, IL has been the home of Caterpillar for many years; however, they have announced a move to Chicago which is upsetting as it effects the local economy. Thanks for joining and your rating and <3!

Response: Hooray! Glad it made it. You are a patient soul! I look forward to your reply when you have the chance. :-) Thank you for the rating and <3!

Comment: Thank you for your log. I came back from vacation in Eilat and there it was. I dislike books with teenager anguish too. That's why i find it hard to read YA.
Response: I am so glad it made it! I finished the Lunar Chronicles and then tried a couple of the extra novellas--Wires and Nerve, a graphic novel, and Stars Above, a collection of short stories. Kind of fun! Please let me know if the 55 book questions didn't arrive, and I'll resend.

Comment: You did such an awesome job this month!!!! I have no doubt you will be a success in July too! I love the floss - thank you!!
Response: You're welcome!! Thank you for the encouragement! I have gone 30 miles so far this month and am right on track! Hard to believe I did in a week what it took me almost a month to do before. :)
