Updates as of 11/15

11/15- Hello! I'm currently out of town for work for the next 3 weeks. I'll get to stop in my family's state right before Thanksgiving (I leave from them that day :( ) and then fly back to work but not "home" for work lol. 'Twas a last minute scheduling issue with another employee and I took their place. I didn't get to lug much of my crafts with me so I run to hobby lobby with excuses to buy things if I have a minute, but there isn't too many :(. Please don't hesitate to send me a message if you don't get your mail from me. There's a good chance it's partly done, 5% done or still at the house waiting to be mailed out if it has to go to the post office. I took a few things with me, but not enough to fulfill everything.

10/31- Hello! We have several projects at work with a deadline of this week. Many of which affect mine and other coworker’s ability to actually work and our licenses. I’m a competency liaison meaning people go to me for checkoffs at the hospital. So even if I have my work done, I have to account for dozens of others :O. And let’s face it, some of us are professional slackers lol. So imagine having to check on multiple people to make sure they don’t lose their jobs. That, along with many corporate modules and projects we have to complete to not lose our jobs, has put me so behind on my projects. These things take HOURS!

10/24- Truthfully. I overwhelmed myself signing up for swaps here and on FB 1000%. It wasn't bad at all WHILE I was signing up for them because I made enough time to create everything. Then, my luggage got lost by the airlines (I can email a photo of the paperwork if you need (for swaps I'm joining)), so it set me behind financially and time wise. Not a clue who I owed swaps to, and unfortunately, some incoming mail was in there too.

If you are missing something from me, that is probably not an error and completely my fault. Please do not feel as though you are bugging me when asking about things I’m supposed to send you! I’m here because I’m trying to find excuses to send mail to others! If you are not receiving something from me I am always open to being messaged, because a large part of why I'm here is to be able to send you something from my side of life.(.

I've found that sometimes I have several postcards missing their owners when mailed from certain places. I noticed that when I mailed from a particular area while out of town, none of those cards made it out. But the following day from a different location, all those made it safely to their recipients. Postcards are super easy to send, but apparently not for all mail folks. I don’t mind one bit in resending so pls message me! Even if you’re rechecking up on me.

About Me

I really love sending mail and creating things. It helps me in my life and just adds an incredible happiness to my day. I work 6 nights a week, 12 hour shifts, but I'm always, always (trying) to do something crafty at work to keep me sane, lately it's been hard to do that though.

As with everyone here, I absolutely love receiving and creating mail! I love sending postcards and of course they’re incredibly fun to receive too. I’m in a few Facebook groups for swapping crafts so I thought I would expand out to find more people to do this with, hence here I am :).


Actually about me, haha: I'm a cardiac nurse at the hospital I pretty much live in. I actually graduated in 2010 but didn't pursue the actually job until 2016 I think. Time is flying by. I was raised in California, I moved to Texas for a few years and now I live in Kentucky!

I really am lucky I work with the people I do because I have to pick up so many shifts, it makes is a tad more do-able to work with awesome people. It's my first nursing job and though we are the lowest paying state in the country, here I am! Haha.

Right before this job, I was a daycare teacher for a class of ten 2-year olds, who I miss so, so much. I love kids! I don't have any of my own, and I will gravitate to any friend who has a baby or child under 3 haha. I have been a bartender, a soccer "teacher" for 3-year-olds, I've been a photographer and so many other jobs in my life. I love soccer, playing more than watching. Dancing is another love of mine. I love to travel, although overseas is still on my list :). I love foods, desserts especially and mac & cheese, also pot roast. I babble a lot so I pre-apologize for postcards that are just ramblings from me :).

This idea of swapping is incredible fun to me, so if for some reason you're ever missing anything from me, please let me know so I can figure it out for you :) I read through your profiles and really try to match things in your likes. It makes it fun for me and just as fun for you!

Postcard themes

Of course Disney, haha. Also I really like Egypt and the pyramids, as well as castles! I appreciate everything that comes into my possession. If it’s easy access, the above or something awesome from where you’re from, anything quirky or snarky too :)

Issues I Could Forsee

When it comes to postcards, I'm always going out of town and mailing from every post office box, hotel, wherever I can reach. Some places, mail is not as reliable as others- as some of you have discovered. So please let me know if you realize you didn't receive mine. 1. I'll send it from somewhere else, haha. 2. Postcards are so simple to mail, there's no reason for me to not send more than one.

I go out of town a lot, as I live in one place and have family in 2 states that I fly to see every month. Sometimes my mail is on hold at the post office, other times I have family pick it up for me at the house so I don't lose it. If you don't have ratings from me, please send me a message so I can look into it! I get paranoid about my mail and I know we all are concerned whether people receive ours or not. Please feel free to ask me about them at any time!

Colors, the colors!

glitter, blue, pink, gray, gold, rose gold, red. Hahahha thats almost all of them 😂

Favorite Crafts

Pocket letters and flipbooks! Currently learning of new others :)

I love little tiny images that resemble stickers or are the size of it. It's almost as if they're printed out and cut out out. I love die cuts since I don't have a fancy machine as well haha.

I love to swap pages of stationary or memo sheets! I use them in my journals (don't ask me how many haha). I just like everything in general really :D

Comment: Thank you for the nice Frozen. I didn't recognize it as first. I like the colours used, the lattice design and snowflakes.
Response: Me too! I had to think a little bit because I didn't want to cheat to see what it was on the back before trying to guess lol

Comment: 11/1/2018: Swap deadline was 10/3. I sent you a message on 10/15 that I had not received this card and I have yet to hear back from you. I do see that you read the message. I will change the rating to a 3 if I receive something.
Response: Hi! I completely understand! I do get so many messages especially with the hosting so I’m sure I opened it and didn't realize I didn't respond. I would have sent this one from out of town and some places are shadier than others if whole groups don’t get my postcards. I’ll send it again, I don’t mind at all :).

Comment: Thanks for the snow White card. When I was small we had a set of Christmas tree fairy lights which had these snow White characters on them. We used to nag my dad for weeks​ before hand to put the tree up so we could see the lights
Response: I love your story behind it! :) I'm glad I had that to be able to send <3

Hi Katrina, I am wondering if you ever received the swap PC swap #10 from me. If you have, would you kindly rate me, and if you haven't would you please let me know so I can resend it to you? I would like to archive this swap but I am still waiting on a rating from you to do so. Thank you.
