Just to let you know, I do rate when I receive swaps, but due to a State Stay At Home Order, I am only picking up mail about once a week. Thank you for your patience!

This month postcard focus are, from the states of West Virginia, Iowa, Mississippi, and Wisconsin.

I like collecting postcards from other places that show the person's town, historical place, flowers native to that area, scenic postcards, and local foods, lighthouses, snow capped mountains, covered bridges, famous buildings, and countryside, I like Lantern Press and Zazzle post cards as well!

If you are from Canada, I am interested in your local area, National Parks, Lighthouses, and anything you can recommend to visit in your country!

Wish list for a gift: Mrs. Grossmans Create Your Own Sticker Art. Any book she offers!

Also, I use to love the Invisible Ink Yes and Know books. You know Ages 8-88! Any of these would be fun! I recently remembered these and thought that would be fun to have being at home a lot more or even for this coming winter!

I like to journal as well! I am starting to get into Bible journaling as well. I am always looking for stencils to use in my Bible. I do not draw very well, so stencils will come in handy. Of coarse any verse stickers or washi is always welcome!

note cards, stationary, stickers, washi tape rolls

pen pals(I really like chatty letters too!)

travel(anything to do with your area or country)I like beaches with the mountains in the background. I like Maine coastline, the west coast especially WA and OR, and the Great Lake Region. I also like Lighthouse are interesting along with Covered Bridges.

Tea cups and teapots(anything with tea cups or teapots on it )notecards, postcards, stickers

Drinking Tea and Hot Cocoa! I love Peppermint, Peach, Plain Black tea, and ones from English Tea Shop. I new one is Green Tea with mint as well. I also love Southren Sweet Tea in the summer.

The country life(old rustic barns, chickens, Jersery cows, bikes with baskets, pictures with an old truck on them like the Walton's truck, picnics ) Sunflowers too Any note cards, stickers, with these items is great as well.

I like to eat ice cream! Ice cream stickers are great too! Or any note cards, writing paper with ice cream on it.

I like to read Christian Fiction on Mysteries, Romance, Biographies, homesteading stories, tea books, devotionals, and well anything you think I may like.

learning about other foods and cultures

I like all flowers! I enjoy fresh flowers on the dining room table. I love flower gardens but mine aren't like the professional ones. Some of my favorite are Sunflowers, Tulips, Roses, Star grazer lilies, and Lupines.

Favorite colors that I like: Bright Pink or Fushia, Lime Green, Sunshine Yellow, Purple, Navy, and Red,

Favorite room colors, I like cream, light brown, so I can accent it with a brighter color. Accent colors purple, reds, greens, blues, and yellows.


My dislikes are: Kawaii Fairies Dark or evil looking items Snakes I don't care for Halloween so please don't send anything that pertains to this. I do like Fall looking items, apples, pumpkins, Thanksgiving.

About Me

I enjoy traveling around the USA, but would love to travel abroad again someday. Since traveling is expensive, doing swap-bot can help knowing other from other countries and the USA.

When I was a in grade school, we got a pen pal from another local school. That is where I learned to love have pen pals. Than I went to camp and learned more friends to write too. That was back in the day of no electronics. In High School, I got my first try at an international pen pal.

I am a wife and mother to 3 children.

Send me anything listed here:

anything from another country

tourist books

Frig magnets


Christian Fiction books you have read and liked, Biographies, Non-Fiction books on Flower, Herbs, picture books showing your area, inspirational coffee table books


Note cards or Stationary(I like Punch Studio products, Lang, Leanin' Tree, but them are just some favorites. I really like anything you send me.)

Any tourist card

That would be my preferences right now but I am sure I will like it whatever you do send. Just keep it child friendly!

You can write on the back and send it. I like real photos for the most part. I do like Christopher Arndt Postcards as well. I am a fan of current postcards and not really into vintage ones.


I always send swaps and rate as well! If you don't receive a rating, I probably didn't receive the swap as of yet or it was lost in the mail. I will contact the swap partner if I don't receive something in a months time, before I rate a bad rating. Life happens and this is to be a fun experience, not a stressful hobby.

If you don't receive a swap let me know before giving me a bad rating. I don't flake, so message me first!

Comment: Thank you Jo for the beautiful patriotic envie! I do love the red, white and blue! Great idea on the ribbons, notepad and history. Civics class was a VERY long time ago for me, so the refresher was welcome! Of course, the Freedoms weren't explained in depth like this. Thank you again! Stay well!

Thanks for your lovely note and the pcs for July WW. Your mailart is cute! We miss the beach for sure but like you are mostly staying home. Your outdoors visit and dining sounds nice. It's 90+humidity here so I tend to get out early and then reverse hibernate. Take care!
