About Me

The best way to get a heart is to write a PERSONAL MESSAGE!! :D

Hi there, I'm Kelly. I'm 26 and I've been swapping on and off since 2009. When I was younger my brother and sister had pen pals and I used to think it was the coolest of cool things to have a pen pal. I took up the hobby by starting on interpals, making friends, joining groups on Facebook, learning about postcrossing.com and finally swap-bot.

Some things about ME:

I work for New York State Dept. of Health. I enjoy helping people a lot and really feel like I'm able to do so with my job. I have a cat (fur daughter) Henny (short for Henrietta) and a boyfriend named Josh.

(Postcard) Likes

I'm pretty simple... I like cutesy girly stuff... I love simple french images like a done up tea table or some lace doilies with a vase of flowers on them. Something like that. Indoor scene cards.... I also love cartoons and illustrations and cards with children on them (especially in native dress, it's so interesting).

Other likes:

German postcards with words, phrases in German. I also loove little babies or children in traditional German outfits, so cute! Also I'm learning German so if you wanna write me a message in it (think Kindergarten level German) I would love that!!

Elephants (lovelovelove) |cakes | desserts | vintage looking cards | anything 1950s or "The way we were" type cards like the ones with random facts or scenes of a town in the 50s-60s. I love retro/vintage stuff | hot air balloons | colorful scenes | animals (cats particularly) | Any card that looks like Henny (orange lady tabby cat) | Disney/ Pixar | Alice in Wonderland | Spacey stuff (Star Wars) | Sci-fi / futuristic | Food cards / recipes | Jokes / dark humor / otherwise inappropriate things. | I'm not picky so send what you like!


Cards in poor taste. I don't get offended easily. I like all kinds of crude, rude, and dirty cards. If you've got one that's all kinds of weird, send it along. But cards that are deliberately hateful are no go. I've never received a card like that but you never know.

I also don't like occult stuff or dark magicy stuff. Not my thing, never has been.

Anything that's geared towards teens isn't my thing either, like Twilight stuff or whatever else is popular these days...

Also if I'm ever in a swap... chocolate with fruit filling... I don't like at all. I mainly only like dark chocolate but plain milk chocolate is good too, especially if it's foreign.

And I do not drink coffee... I just don't have a taste for it.


The Hens

HENNY (with her new friend)!!! ♥♥♥

Henny's likes:

Hugs and Well wishes

About profile comments.... I don't get e-mail alerts about these so I constantly forget to check for them.... please don't feel snuffed! I love you all and thank you for decorating my profile with your lovely messages... If you'd ever like to swap, shoot me a message and I'll send you links to my albums.

Thanks all and happy swapping!!!


Here's some generic likes in case ya wanna talk music or movies or food or whateva.

My (Kelly) favorites: Movies/ TV: Classics : I love anything and everything from the 30s to the 80s. Most recently I binge watched The Dick Van Dyke Show and I'm currently binging on Columbo. I love thrillers and mysteries. Others I like are: Breakfast at Tiffany's, Coming to America, Trading Places, I love Lucy, Laura, I dream of Genie, Stir Crazy, Twilight Zone, etc etc

Others I like

Amelie | The Closet | The Dinner Game | Chicken Run | Ace Ventura The Little Prince | Fantastic Mr. Fox | Moonrise Kingdom | The Odd Couple | Moulin Rouge |

Music I like anything alt rock, some indie, german metal & rock, numetal, etc etc lots of everything, hit me with a suggestion if you read this far pleaseEeeEe!


I (Kelly) love tea. My favorite are herbal teas. I love fruity and floral. My favorite expensive tea is raspberry balsamico from teavana (try it! so good!). My favorite cheap tea is Tazo Passion tea. I'm not really picky at this point, I'll try just about anything... though I strongly prefer berry flavors. I don't care if it's expensive, cheap, rare, common, loose leaf, unwrapped, whatever... send it my way, I'd love to try it! I work with people who drink tea too so I love to share new flavors with them :)

That said, I strongly dislike rooibos tea. I do like white tea, and black tea, herbal tea, and flavored green teas.


This year I'm doing swaps with my boyfriend, Josh! This is his very first Christmas in New York and with me and I want to introduce him to the fun world of swapping! It would be really great if you include his name on the Christmas cards you send!

Josh: born in New Mexico, raised in Missouri, lived in Australia and Pennsylvania... now in New York! He's completely new to swapping so anything you send will be great.

Cards we like:



Snowy scenes

Children playing

Tropical Christmas cards

Funny/weird cards

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Do not like religious cards~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


(except stickers or postcards)

As much as I love crafting, with my new schedule I really just don't have time to make good use of anything so please pass them along to the craftier folks. :)


Every weekday morning I drive my friend to work. She is a baker which means I'm out and about at 4:30 in the morning. I drive her to the capital, Albany and on my way back home I pass by a post office. That's where I leave my swaps. In the mailbox, in front of the post office, at 5 in the morning. If it's marked sent on a Saturday, it means I dropped it into another mailbox or at another post office. I painstakingly record all swaps, all things sent, to whom, to where, and exactly when. If for some reason you do not get what I send, please message me and I'll send another thing along. It'lll be a copy of the thing I sent the first time because I do actually read profiles and try to match likes with what I have :)
