About Me

my DIGITAL ephemera shop:


July 2019 - I'm back! I missed you guys! I'm peeping in here and there on a limited basis. I'm going to take it slow getting back into it. As we all know swapping can be time consuming (but a lot of fun which is why we do it) I miss having my mailbox overloaded with happy mail! :)

Hi everyone!!!! My name is Tia, married with 2 children, (a girl and a boy) and 2 dogs (Italian mastiffs - a girl and a boy). I love all animals, especially cats & dogs. I was born in Washington, DC and currently live in Maryland.

I joined Swap-bot because I like sending and receiving stuff. It's so nice to open your mailbox and actually have something in it that you are happy to receive. I am a wife and a mother. I have 2 children and 2 dogs. In my spare time I craft, read and watch television. I don't crochet and knit as much as I would like to because there's just not enough time in the day for everything I enjoy doing.

I'm easy, open to any PC you would like to send. I especially like anything different/unique that is yucky, gory, funny, weird, adult, scary, creepy are all my favorites.

LOVE to receive Tea :)

I also like to receive unique book marks (I read a lot)

*** PLEASE contact me if you don't receive a swap from me**** before rating! Things do get lost/delayed in the postal service! (especially postcards) I show everyone that courtesy and will always give the person the chance to explain a missing/late swap. Be nice! It's not that hard :)

I forgot to mention that I also sent you an email as following:

---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: María
Date: Tue, Jun 6, 2017 at 10:34 PM Subject: *WIYM: Happy Flat Mail APRIL, 2017: International To: [email protected]

Hello Tia!!

I hope this finds you well!

I have tried to contact you via Swap-Bot but your last login is back May 23th, so I decided to write you via your personal email.

I am missing a rating for the swap *WIYM: Happy Flat Mail APRIL, 2017: International. I sent it with tracking # RR808425161CR back in April first and it seems is received (arrived), so I would really appreciate if you can help me rating me.

Take care,
