About Me

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: Tracey, your handwritten letter arrived on 09-23-19. WOW! Thank you. I absolutely LOVED it. Girl, you sent me unused stamps?! Awww...how generous! I love your personalized Swap-bot business card. I need to make myself some of those. Very cool! And the stickers and card?! Very cute! Did you notice the cat sticker where he is wearing the bird beak? ADORABLE. Your swap made my day! Thank you! ฮตั—ะท ฦธฬดำฬดฦท โค ฦธำœฦท ฮตั—ะท Lora

Comment: Tracey... what a lovely note. I have never heard of swimming with pigs, but I will have to share that with my friend in Oregon that LOVES pigs! Thank you so much for the wonderful PCs. I have been to Florence, Italy, but not to any of the other countries you sent! They are beautiful. Thank you so much for the wonderful envie and note. I know that you and your hubby will have a great time on the cruise (never been on a cruise, either!). After, be sure to send me a note and let me know how it went :-). <3 <3 PS - Love the decorated envie too!
Comment: I love your envelope and all of the goodies inside. Thanks so much.
Comment: Thank you so much for sending me all those teas and a bookmark. I seriously cannot wait to try out all those teas. Plus I love switching around my bookmarks when I start a new book.

Comment: You must tell me more about your cruise when you send me a postcard next time! I LOVE cruises! Swimming with pigs sounds kind of fun...I want to hear how you like it lol Thank you so so much for the extra postage!
Comment: Hello neighbor! You're going too get a laugh, your envelope has a big "postage due: $0.52" on it! I was confused because it was in my mailbox, I thought maybe my mailman was being nice and let it slide. Then I realized, whoever stamped it totally missed your lightblue forever stamp!! The envelope has written on it "$0.85 - $0.33 = $0.52" and then the "postage due: $0.52" so i looked a little longer and realized they only counted your two stamps that were $0.13 and $0.20 and completely ignored your forever stamp! My mail man is awesome, his name is Rob, he probably saw that and thought, "there's definitely enough postage, i'm throwing it in her mailbox!" ANYWAY thank you so much for all the awesome notecards! And your highlight put a big smile on my face, you go girl ~ xoxo

Comment: I've had a very similar summer too! Yay for your success!!
Comment: Holy moley! This is one of my first swaps back after a 5 month hiatus, and your lovely extras sure made me glad that I came back. Any swap that is hosted by @christy102194 or @SeleneW are good. They are the only ones I am joining right now besides a journal swap series that I am loving. Happy Swapping!

Comment: Oh. My. Gosh! I was not expecting this level of happy mail today! There seriously needs to be a way to give more than one heart! Thank you so much for your beautiful card, and the blank card you gave me, and the aquatic stationery and the multitude of beautiful washi tapes. Everything is so perfect for me! :D Have a wonderful day!!! <3

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.)
