About Me

I'm a mother of two teenagers (16 & 17) living in a small town. I also have two Boxers. I love to read, create mail art, take pictures, and hang out with family and friends. I can't survive without coffee. I try to treat others the way I would want to be treated. I love everything that has to do with snail mail and stationery.

After taking a break from Swap-Bot, I am back. I'm mainly interested in book and postcard swaps.

Favorite Music

My taste in music ranges from "you need to listen to this" to "I know, please don't judge me." Al Green, Otis Redding, Adele, Gwen Stefani, Twenty One Pilots, Maroon 5, Blake Shelton, Marvin Gaye, Bruno Mars....the list goes on.

Favorite Crafts

I love to scrapbook but have shifted to pocket scrapbooking lately because it's easier. I also like to decorate my envelopes with stickers, stamps, and washi tape. My favorite scrapbook lines are Amy Tangerine, Dear Lizzy, & Heidi Swapp. I've also started documenting my travels in a Midori Traveler's Notebook.

Favorite Television

My current favorites are Being Mary Jane, Queen Sugar, Scandal, The Walking Dead, The Voice, Nashville, and Big Bang Theory. Past favorites were 24, Gossip Girl, X-Factor, The Good Wife, & Army Wives.

Favorite Postcards

I depend on postcards to travel the world. Here are some of my interests, but at the end of the day I welcome them all. I also don't mind receiving blank postcards should you have extras. Postcards I think are cool are:

  • typography
  • coffee
  • postcards with your photography
  • butterflies
  • books
  • royalty
  • religious/inspirational quotes

Wish list

  • notecards with envelopes
  • unused non-touristy postcards
  • Bookmarks!! From homemade to the magnetic kind
  • anything air-mail, travel, postal themed
  • BookCrossing labels
  • Bookplates (From the library of etc.)
  • books


I recently discovered BookCrossing and I am hooked! Most of the books I own are registered and labeled with BookCrossing labels. If you receive a book from me with a BookCrossing label, all you have to do is enter the BCID number at www.bookcrossing.com and let me know you have received it. You can create a journal entry anonymously or you can sign up for a free account. If you sign up, please consider using Queen72 as the one who referred you. Creating a journal entry will guarantee a heart!

If you would like to do a private Bookcrossing swap with me, please message me. Sorry, but USA swaps only.


Please take the time to rate me and I will do the same for you. If for some reason you are missing my rating, please feel free to contact me so we can resolve this matter quickly. My goal is to get swaps completed so they can be archived in a timely manner.

Thanks for returning my NM mapcard. If I had another I would send it to you. I swapped heavily on Facebook for my US mapcard collection which I completed over a year ago. There are so many different maps for each state. Love the cute stamps you decorated my card with. Take care!
