About Me 👩🏼

I recently moved from Texas to Iowa. If you need my new address, please send me a message!

Hello! My name is Heidi and I recently moved to Iowa, land of corn! I'm enjoying the midwest so far, except for the humidity! I graduated from college in December of 2021 and work full-time as a researcher for insurance companies. I have a little hamster named Frank, and a bunny named Dumbledore (or Dumby for short!)

I live a zero waste / eco minimalist lifestyle. If possible, please reuse some scrap paper for letters or to be upcycled into an envelope- thank you!

I LOVE the color pink💖 (it's my favorite color), hot air balloons 🎈, rainbows🌈, and strawberries🍓! If you send me anything with those on it I will love it!

Collecting / ISO 💌

🎈Hot air balloons
💌Postcrossing (meetups, Postcrossing themed, etc.)
🌈Rainbows or rainbow colored things
🎆Stained glass
✨Special postcards (cork, wood, lenticular, shaped, seed packet, things like that)
(If you want to send me a previously used postcard, feel free to put a piece of paper over the back and reuse it!)

For postage stamps, here are some themes I like: (used/mint, on/off paper, any country) Feel free to send me your damaged stamps, I use them for craft projects :)
☀️Bright colors
🍏Fruits / vegetables / food
✨Special stamps (lenticular, clear, shiny, gold foiling, etc.)

Tea 🫖☕️

*I love tea! I try to drink a cup every day and I've loved "tasting the world" through the teas that other lovely swappers have sent to me. Some of my favorites have been:
* Fruit-flavored (blueberry, orange, strawberry, etc.)
* Floral (lavender, chamomile, hibiscus, rose, jasmine)
* David's tea, for some reason I struggle to find it

I have no tea dislikes besides licorice

Swapping With Me ✉️

I always send my swaps out either by the due date or right after partners are assigned! If you live in the US, please let me know if you haven't received my swap 2 weeks after the deadline. If you are international, feel free to send me a message if it's been a while and you haven't received anything. I know with the pandemic there's a lot going on with the postal service in everyone's countries! :)

Feel free to send me a message if you're a newbie and would like to do a private swap with me, I know it can be hard to get ratings under your belt when you first join.

Wishlist ✨

Just a few special things I've been looking for!

  • "Please deliver to" labels for writing addresses
  • Any magazine cutouts / magazine pages
  • Strawberry, blueberry, or orange flavored teas
  • Blank postcards
  • Paw Patrol, Winnie the Pooh, or Frozen stickers / stationery / postcards. I have a 3-year-old niece (Alivia) who jumps for joy when Aunt Heidi sends her fun-looking mail :)

🚫Please avoid sending...

Anything witchy (besides Harry Potter) / pagan / wiccan, as I am a Christian and just not into those things. I am okay with confetti as long as it isn't teeny tiny, but please do not send me loose glitter as my pets could get into it.

Other than that, I'm not picky at all! Send me whatever makes you smile, it'll probably make me smile, too!
