About Me

I rate as soon as I receive swaps in the mail. If I haven't rated you, it means I haven't received it yet. Also, please spell my name correctly. I've had both my first and last names spelled incorrectly a zillion times.

I'm happily married and mom of adult children. I'm originally from Hawaii and now live in Arizona. Arizona has hot weather, so please don't mail me anything that can melt.

The books I enjoy most are in the suspense/thriller genre. Authors - Ruth Ware, Karin Slaughter, Gillian Flynn, Mary Kubica, Jo Nesbo, etc. (I hate romance novels.)

I buy my postage stamps from a stamp dealer, so I try to put interesting stamps on whatever I mail out (when my stash is full).

I love shopping at thrift stores. I usually look for stationery. I have a serious paper addiction and always buy paper/stationery when I see it. I guess it goes with my love of pen palling. I have several pen pals all over the world.

I enjoy listening to audiobooks, true crime podcasts, cooking (stove top, crockpot, pressure cooker), farmers markets, and I'm addicted to coffee & tea. I am a huge animal lover and have 3 dogs in our family plus we take care of a feral family of cats outdoors. I can't imagine our home without any pets.

My husband and I try to travel as much as possible. I love experiencing new cultures and meeting new people.

****For postcard swaps, I'd love it if you sent them blank in an envelope if possible. I won't rate down if the swap calls for them to be sent written/naked.****


Stickles glitter glue (any color)

Stationery (letter sets, larger notecards)

Stickers (no reward please)

Return address labels with my info

Paper napkins (unique designs for mail art)

Unused USPS stamps

Non-touristy postcards

Washi tape

Colorful pens (no black ink)

Tea (no loose tea please)

Embossing powders

Perfume samples

Reusable grocery bags

Gift cards: Dollar Tree, 99c Store, Amazon, Michael's, Hobby Lobby, Barnes & Noble, Starbucks, TJ Maxx, Tuesday Morning, Trader Joe's

RAKs - giving and receiving!


I don't like things that don't have a purpose and cause clutter in the house (knick knacks, ornaments, etc.)

Incoming mail that smells of smoke (sorry, but I throw everything out including tuck-ins)


NON-RATING SWAP PARTNERS - I think it's really inconsiderate for people not to rate. How else will your partner know if the swap made it to you okay or not?

Comment: Thank you so much! I love the die cuts and alphabet stickers. Thatโ€™s awesome about the feral cats you feed! And that you have 3 dogs. Best of both worlds. I grew up with dogs, but have had cats all my adult life. I really do like both though. Iโ€™m going send you a message about the Facebook group you mentioned. Thanks again.

Thanks for the wonderful RAK of envelopes that you sent to me. I especially love the rubber ducky one. And thanks for describing the glue dots you sent to close them. I had never seen glue dots like this before. (I also sent you a message.)
