7/28 My mom passed away after a long struggle. Im not sure what to do with myself. Swapping and making things have gotten me through the worst time in my life. Im just thankful to have this.
Hi, my name is Heather. I live in West Virginia with my boyfriend, our 11 year old daughter, and our kitties. My favorite thing to do in life is playing with paper. I collect old paper stuff like receipts, calling cards, cigarette cards, letters, report cards and other stuff. I love making junk journals and making my planner pretty. Swapping has become my favorite hobby. I love sending and receiving goodies, postcards and especially handmade things.
Junk journals, altered books and everything that goes with it. Dying paper, making ephemera.
I also love happy planners, bullet journals, travelers notebooks.
I love stamping, inking, painting with watercolors and acrylics, calligraphy (not good at that yet)
ATC's!! I didnt know they existed until a couple months ago.
I haven't read much lately because I have a hard time picking books right now. But I love bios or memoirs mostly of old time mobsters I like things like Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and Handmaids tale. My all time favorite is She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb. I also like easy reads like VC Andrew's, and Candace Bushnell.

German and french book pages
Readers Digest covers
Inked up tracing papers
The paper with the little triangles all over it, kind of like graph paper.
Anything made by you that I can put into my journal
Old gangster movies, documentaries, 80's movies my mom watched when I was a kid, comedy, anything with Melissa McCarthy, anything by Quentin Tarantino. I will watch anything really. I always have something playing in the background.
I will always send my swaps on time. I will always rate the day i get them. Please rate me so that i know you have received what i sent! If you happen to not recieve something from me, please let me know. If i make any kind of mistake please let me know, I am more than willing to fix it! I have never enjoyed a hobby like im enjoying this!
Please do not send dirty things.
I have been reading about a lot of postage due issues. I haven't had this happen so I'm not sure how it works. Even though I am a half a block from the post office, I cant always get there before it closes. If a package i send has to be weighed I make time but I cant do that every day. So I try to put correct amounts, or more. If it happens that you get something from me that has postage due and you pay it, even if its a nickel please let me know so I can make it right.
I'm very new to collecting postcards. But some of the things I like are... i hope this is a legit list. I'm still learning about what I like.
Dogs and other animals
Old ones with people on them, photography and other if that makes sense...
Victorian women, or couples
Vintage valentines, Easter and Christmas
Vintage funny or newer funny
Old casinos, motels, or desert land
Sea creatures, ocean images, dolphins
Old New York or Italy
Weird ones, by that I mean possible bad language, odd photos anything.
I'd like to collect all the states, no particular style
Space or astrology
I want a Wheres Waldo badly!!
