Looking For
* ATCs
* Blank Penguin and Hedgehog postcards

NOT Looking For
* pink stuff
* stickers


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.
Sunglasses are my semi-permanent accessory.
Now that we're out of winter, I'm trying to get out and walk or bike every day.


  • Colors: most shades of blue and green. Lavender and burgundy are also nice. I don't like pink.
  • simple & quiet > loud & glitzy
  • white chocolate.
  • 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! ☺)

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: Hi Hannah - Thank you for the great collection of stationary. Love the postcards, note cards, letter sets and the fold-n-post. The magazine was a nice touch too. Sorry for the delay in rating. I think I got to looking at the magazine and forgot. ps: Mark's CD is still in my player...
Response: Glad to hear you liked it all and are still enjoying Mark's music! I don't think the reply will link, but his music blog is http://markssongs.blogspot.com/. He hasn't posted much lately though.

Comment: Thank you so much for the package of goodies! You have really spoiled me. Everything was just perfect. Thanks again. I am just about 30 minutes outside Chicago, a little too close to O'hare. :)
Response: I am always happy to spoil appreciative recipients! Sounds a bit loud where you live, haha. Once I was driving by Midway and panicked when it looked like a plane was going to land on me. Definitely not used to being that close to an airport!

Comment: Hi Hannah! Always fun to have you as a partner and hope this finds you well! Did you have a good Easter? Isn't it so easy to overspend at the PC shows? You didn't do so bad, only $15 over budget! LOL! Only two booths though, that had me smiling! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Yes, Easter was good! Spent the afternoon with some good friends and their little ones, and then went to a family dinner. I am hoping to attend another PC show in July!
Comment: Thank you for the great postcards including the monkeys one, I am always out of my own postcards. That was great coincidence... Plus thank you for the wonderful postcards you used for my envie! Loved them! ♥♥
Response: Jajaja! I am glad you like them. Happy Swapping!
manders2280 rated for NH: Easy Postcard #15 on Apr 18, 2017
Comment: Thanks for the lovely postcard. Pesach, yes, and so glad it's the last day. My husband who is not Jewish makes lots of jokes about how matzoh can be turned into anything. After the Hindenburg, the challenge was to make them safe. They are quite economical. Think of all those blimps over sporting events!
Response: That's true--I hadn't thought about those. I will have to read up on them!

lou rated for *WIYM: Happy Flat Mail APRIL, 2017: USA on Apr 10, 2017
Comment: Thanks very much for the note you sent with the fun old postcards - hope you have a wonderful April, too!
Response: We have had so much rain, but finally the past couple days have been BEAUTIFUL!
Comment: Thank you very much for your uplifting note and gifts! Besides the Appalachian region, I would love to visit (and work) at the archives in Norwich, CT. I lived in one of the historic districts as a child and would love to know more about it!
Response: Historic districts are so rich in character! My aunt lives in Bridgeport. Connecticut is beautiful!
Comment: Thank you for putting together this swap especially for me. I don't think I'll be able to send the card, it'll be so perfect in my studio! Thanks also for the washi and the book recommendation; I will definitely check out the series you suggested. Have a lovely day. :)
Response: You are so welcome! I have a few cards I can't bear to part with either. The problem is, I keep buying more of them! We are having the most wonderful weather today, thank you!

RAKs (One on one trades -public forum) - the square cards have finally arrived! Strange that it would take over a month to get here from IL, but it happens. Thanks very much; I'll for sure use them.
