About Me

Hey! My name is Courtney and I have been penpalling and doing swaps for a year, and many of my penpals have reccomended swapbot so I decided to check it out.

I am currently studying English Literature at uni since i love books and reading. I have a pet rabbit, dog and a horse since I love animals, but I always keep them away from my outgoing mail incase my penpals have any allergies to them.

I come from a smoke-free and alcohol-free home!


I love crystals, mindfulness and yoga, and have been trying to live more spiritually and peacefully recently, I am collecting dream catchers at the moment so receiving some would be nice.

I really enjoy history, and I collect old items. I am interested in WW2 and medieval britain in particular.

I love jazz music to rock music to indie, and mostly 70s-90s music.Some bands I like are The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, King crimson, Sports team, Nothing but thieves, MGMT, Joy Division, Wolf Alice, Alice in chains, Sonic youth, Biffy Clyro etc.

Tea preferences

I don’t like anything lemony, tropical flavoured or with ginger or pineapple but I have no allergies so i can have any tea.

I LOVE weird or unusual tea flavours, sweet teas, vanilla, chocolate, cakes, caramel, etc and my fave herbal tea is cranberry and raspberry, or anything red berry flavoured.

I like being sent both loose teas and teas in packs.

Favourite colour

Green, blue, and brown.

I adore shades of browns since it completes the vintage look, and matches my journal theme.

Favourite animal

Horses, red pandas and foxes!

I also adore birds of prey

What I like to receive

Like I said, I love anything vintage, animal, travel or botanical themed.

I love receiving vintage books, vintage wax paper for dress making cut-outs and vintage music sheets and map pages.

I love detailed washi to washi with geometric shapes,and washi samples are one of my fave things to recieve.

I love ephermera, mainly of tickets and die cuts since I do not have many.

I would like more envelopes too since i am always running out!

Anything handmade is amazing also!

I am also looking for rubber stamps, (i don't mind used) paper (vintage or from a paper pad) stickers, ribbons and I know its a big ask, but wax seal supplies! I have none but would love to get into it.

I love pocket bacs from bath and body works but we do not have one in england.

I would like to try food from different countries, but I am vegetarian so please send something veggy friendly.

I like string jewellery, as I find chains uncomfortable so if you want to send me something make sure it is on string!

I also love candles, and will enjoy practically any scent!

I will love anything you send as long as it is not junk, so chances are if you don't want it I do not either.

What I don't like to receive

Anything kawaii, cutesy, disney or childish. It just really is not my style and I wouldn't have any use for it in any of my projects or letters.

Nothing religious as I am atheist so do not care for it.

I would prefer not to get postcards, I don't really send them so they would be wasted on me too.

I don't really like keyrings or bookmarks as I have way too much of both already.

I don't like holiday themed items or bugs except bees and butterflies, so please don't send any! I am scared of clowns so nothing with those on either.

Comment: Thank you for you blind letter. However, it ended up damaged in transport. It's good I knew someone would send a blind envelope, otherwise I wouldn't know it was yours. Not much survived sadly. Only a few things. Nevertheless, still thanks ☺️👍
Response: I’m so sorry!! I hope enough still arrived. I did add quite a lot of goodies and some notes, i hope a sufficient amount arrived. Sometimes royal mail treats letters with no care! It’s so annoying!

Comment: Thank you for the photos. You forgot to tell me what or where your local library is. Sorry to hear about your leg, its a real nuisance when that happens. Hope it heals soon. Blessings.
Response: Oh I’m sorry! The photos were from the Barbican Library in London :)
