Ty Penguins I Don't Have

Please Read...!

Hello! And thanks for reading my profile!

If you do NOT receive my swap, postal or email, please.... PLEASE message me first before rating!! I have never had a poor rating and take great pride in that!

I always send my swaps within a few days of partnering - much before swap deadline!! ALWAYS!

I keep track of my swaps (almost obsessively), sent by me and you, received by me and you, etc... It's kind of a fun process actually.

I would like to know YOU got my swap so if I PM you looking for a rating, it's so I know you got my swap! Plus, who doesn't want their rating?!

I do update my profile every month or two and keep track of the date (just below here... see?) :)

(Profile Last Updated: July 23rd, 2017)

Please note: I have just moved back to Nova Scotia from Quebec as of July 2017. I might be slow getting back to swapping but I'm still around!

IF you still have my QC address, please do not send there, I did not get mail forward. I have updated my address in the database here.

RANT: I had some bad luck with mail while in QC. Many of my swaps did not arrive to who I was sending to, as well, many had not arrived to me. Hopefully this won't happen now that I've moved home. I never had this issue when living in NS previously!

About Me


My name is Beth and I am thirty-five.
I have a kitty named Buddy, but we call him Butter and an 11 year old daughter named Faith.

My favorite types of swaps are generally sticker related, washi/deco tape samples, and profile-based flat swaps. I've also been pondering the idea of starting ATCs. :)

I enjoy many things like stickers, decorative/washi tape, pen palling, penguins, TV, cooking, baking, travel, music, concerts, etc... I also LOVE to decorate my envelopes for swaps and pals!

I have been pen palling since I was 11. If you are interested in becoming pals:

I am interested in writing (and reading) medium to long letters, people who have some of the same interests as me, ladies give or take 10 (ish) years of my age, who like being creative, etc... Also, someone who will write back "right away" (ish). I pen pal to make friends and I find it hard to get to know someone if I have to wait a couple months for a reply. Personally, I do write back within a week. :) Pen pals in Canada would be awesome but anywhere, just send me a PM and tell me a little about yourself! I write in English but I can understand and write some French.

Swapping

I love mail! And the color purple!!
I save/cut out my addresses you write on my swap envelopes. I don't know why, I just have a huge collection of them now! SO, if you care to, decorate it up! Simple or a lot! I also prefer actual postage stamps. :)

As mentioned above, my favorite types of swaps are generally sticker related, washi/deco tape samples, and profile-based flat swaps. I also do enjoy the odd email swap.

I really enjoy making/drawing my own stickers for swaps. Wanna give it a try with me? Send me a message!!

I would prefer to send flat swaps, as they are cheaper on postage but that doesn't mean the odd swap can't be bigger.

Canada swaps! I would LOVE Canadian swaps! Mostly because shipping is cheaper. :p And meeting other Canadians is fun! :)
USA swaps are fine, it is cheaper than international.
International swaps are ok but postage is super expensive so light/flat swaps for the most part.

I do sign up for a lot of international swaps so I guess it's only "luck" when I get to send within Canada or to the USA. :p

I also always send my swaps within a few days of partnering. :)

I have also never been rated a 1 or a 3 and I take pride in that fact! If something has not been received, please send me a message before rating anything!! Please & thanks!

I am usually always open to private swaps, just send me a PM! Also, I would love to have some regular basis swappers for stickers and/or washi/deco tape! :)

EMAIL SWAPS: Not all my emails are getting to people. So PLEASE, if you have not received an email swap from me, LET ME KNOW! I will happily resend.

πŸ’•

What I do NOT like

I want to say I am not overly picky but by making this list, maybe I am? :p

General:

  • Rude people
  • Onions
  • Coconut
  • Tea
  • Caffeinated Coffee :(
  • the color Red

  • Sadly, recently, I've become allergic to bananas. :( I also have sensitivities to caffeine and garlic. So please don't send me any of these!... then again, why would anyone send garlic or even onions in a swap? :p

Mail:

  • Flakers
  • Mail smelling of cigarette smoke
  • People who rate poorly before contacting
  • Stuff I really can't use or have no interest in
  • Blank postcards or ad postcards, altho, I will re-swap if received.

Stickers:
The only exceptions to this list is penguin stickers.

  • Puffy/Foam Stickers
  • Epoxy, dimensional Stickers
  • Word only teacher stickers (doesn't mean I don't like words on stickers)
  • Bent or folded sticker sheets
  • Cut sticker sheets to fit an envelope (unless I say it's ok)

Washi/Deco Tape:

  • word only tape, unless it says "Faith".
  • red tape. I will use it, I just have a lot.

πŸ’•

What I have to offer

My list is longer than it was before and still, I may have some other stuff but just not listed... and I will add stuff when I think of it!

General:

  • Washi tape samples
  • Deco tape samples
  • Vintage & modern postcards (mostly from Canada, USA and Europe)
  • Some fun post-its
  • Stationery paper
  • Red greeting card envelopes (11)
  • Origami paper (36 sheets)
  • Unused greeting cards (Christmas, birthdays & sympathy mostly)
  • MashiMaro envelope sheets (15)
  • Random card stock sheets, some embossed

Stickers:

  • Vintage sheets & Sandylion/other Mods.
  • Loose stickers (random or specific)
    (50 or more at a time. 100+ would be better)
  • Sticker Flakes
  • Sticker sheets (random or specific)
    (3 sheets very minimum. 5+ would be better)
    • Variety
    • Cartoon characters
    • Holidays (most)
    • a variety of sizes

πŸ’•

My Wish List

Things, in general, I would enjoy receiving:

  • Stickers (see details below)
  • Washi & Deco Tape (see details below)
  • Unused Canadian stamps, any value!
  • Ty Penguin Beanie Babies (these ones)
  • Diddl stationery & stickers
  • Sandylion sticker albums (5.5" x8.5" - with or without stickers :p)
  • Cute or colored envelopes (no red!)
  • Sanka coffee (decaf, usually an orange packet)

It is OK to send me:
but I don't really care to swap for them (does that make sense?). These can be included in flat or profile-based swaps.

  • Decaf coffee
  • Mint or regular Hot Chocolate
  • Chocolate bars I can't get in Canada
  • Postcards - I do not sign up for postcard swaps as they're not my priority and postage is just too expensive for a single card. I can send you enveloped & blank postcards from my stash tho but I don't just want postcard specific swaps... If that makes any sense? I prefer:
    • Mailed with a message and stamp, not in an envelope!
    • Multiple images on one card
    • of views (cities/towns or mountains/large landscapes)
    • of real penguins
    • of something really beautiful or purple.
  • RAKs are VERY welcome! :p Ask for my address... unless you already have it, then surprise me!! (NOTE: my new address as of July will be in NS, not QC)

Washi/Deco Tape, in general:

  • Any size/wideness
  • Samples: minimum of 18" unless otherwise stated in a swap.
  • Still on rolls, any type of tape
  • Plain, solid colors are welcome!
  • Animals! Esp. birds, penguins, owls, whales, mice/rats, butterflies...
  • Polka dots! And other fun designs.
  • Colors: blues, greens, purples, yellows, black (I have a lot of red, orange and pink)
  • Holidays: Halloween mostly, but any!
  • NO THANKS: word only tape, unless it says "Faith".
  • NO THANKS: red tape. I will use it, I just have a lot.

Stickers, in general:

  • My specifics list below.
  • FLAT stickers only! (penguins are the exception)
  • Sandylion sticker mods/squares
  • Mrs. Grossman's mods
  • Vintage/old Hallmark sticker sheets (before 2000)
  • Sticker from CrackerJacks boxes! Opened is fine but please leave cover on it!

πŸ’•
Stickers have been my life since I was a kid! My list is so long because I have them organized & sorted into albums for each specific type. I have been collecting for years! Some I do not collect anymore as my album for them is crowded so see my list above for what to send me!

My List: Bears, Bees, Birds, Birthday, Butterflies, Easter, Cats, Christmas, Dinosaurs, Disney, Dogs, Elephants, Farm Animals, Fish, Flowers, Food, Frogs, Giraffes, Halloween, Hearts, Ladybugs, Monkeys, Music, My Little Pony, Penguins, Pokemon & Digimon, Rodents & Woodsie animals, Santa, ScoobyDoo, Sea Life, Smiley Faces, Snowflakes, Snowmen, Stars, Stickeroni guy, Tinkerbell, Turtles, Winnie the Pooh, Zoo animals.
