  • Coffee: I don't drink this.

  • Chocolate: in May-September.

  • Religion: I have been more accepting of this. Just do not try to convert me to your religion as I do not appreciate this at all.

  • Politics: I have no interest in talking politics. Please do not bring this up.

  • Die cuts: I have no use for these. If a swap says you can send these I will probably just pass them along.

  • Dollar Store items: that aren't pens, lined paper, etc.

  • Fabric Pieces: Again, I have no use for them. Though if I am in a journal swap at the time, then I use these in them!

  • Ribbon strands or samples: No use.

  • Books: Adult romance, e-books (such as sending the link for a book swap) ATTN: people have been missing the dislike tab at the top of this and mistaking that I like e-books. I don't care for them!

  • Colors: Brown, camo, orange.

  • Stickers: Kiddie/reward stickers, large (half a page or bigger) stickers, small plain heart stickers,

  • Alcohol: I do not drink. Or smoke. So anything related to this (ex: wine corks) will not be needed. :)

  • People who don't rate.

  • Attention seekers.

  • Braggy people.

  • People who don't leave comments when they rate. It literally takes a second.

I do not want to receive anything that discriminates, or is hateful. Or dirty. Or has a gun theme. Please keep it, thank you.


Feathers, pollens, cat hair strands.

Concerning beauty swaps:

  2. Foot soaks

  3. Nail polish

  4. Finger/toenail tools (files, clippers)

  5. Scrubs

  6. Beauty samples

PLEASE no dollar store items for these. I have no problems with strong scents (i.e.: for lotions and perfumes). I love aloe and cucumber masks.

tv shows & movies & music.

TV Shows: American Horror Story, Bates Motel, How I Met Your Mother, Orange Is The New Black, Young & Hungry, Shameless, The Middle, House M.D., Criminal Minds, The Fosters, Life In Pieces, Last Man Standing, and Golden Girls

I like comedies, action, and some romance. I do not like the sappy comedies or romance. Things like super heroes do not interest me.

Movies: What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Sleepy Hollow, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, Minions, Finding Nemo/Finding Dory, The Visit, Crybaby-honestly any Johnny Depp movie, Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass, Run To Me, (Er ist Wieder Da) Look Who's Back, Hush, Krampus, 10 Things I Hate About You, A Christmas Horror Story, Christmas With the Kranks, The Boy, Get Out.

I like comedy, oldies, foreign, and horror. I do not like most romance like The Longest Ride, or actions like TMNT or Sci-Fi like Star Wars.

Favorite Music American alternative and indie, Korean popular music, and German indie/alt./pop.

about me + random bits.

My name is Samantha, but you can call me Sammy. I live in Michigan, USA. I live in a small town and our little post office here can barely fit five people inside. Often we get travelers who like to take pictures next to the PO. It's so funny!

My hobbies include: reading, writing, journaling, watching TV shows and movies, walking, and gardening in the summer.

I am a part of the LGBT+ community, so if you are too mention it if you would like! I always love when someone mentions it, because it feels like a little safe community inside another safe community.

I suffer from bipolar disorder type one, ADD, an eating disorder, and anxiety. Getting mail calms and lifts my spirit. I feel a lot better when I can fill someone's mailbox and see the effort someone did to get the same reaction.

Random Facts About Me:

  • I love Germany. It's such a lovely country and I plan to visit there later in life. I also am learning German. As well as a few other languages.

  • I enjoy learning about psychology so psychology books are also greatly appreciated. (Used book swaps.)

  • I have three dogs, two hamsters, and two rats. I adore animals.

  • I reached 100 completed swaps on March 18, 2017.

  • I am a tall person.

  • I love vintage, tiny book shops on the street. It's my aesthetic!

  • I enjoy horseback riding.

  • I can watch The Middle over and over and not get tired of it.

What I Collect:

I collect a lot of different things, if there's something you collect, mention it!

  • stamps,

  • kawaii goodies,

  • Japanese ephemera,

  • German ephemera,

  • journals with anything in it (art, junk, notes),

  • used (any) holiday cards,

  • postcards,

  • teas

  • stickers,

  • wrappers of foreign foods/candies,

  • foreign language book pages,

  • and foreign currency

How I Rate

Standard SB five: You know, I received the swap, automatic five.

Hearts: I'm not really much of a lover of the hearts just because, you know, feelings and I don't always give them out, but when I do, I give out hearts because:

  • You're one of my few good/very close friends in the mail world.

  • I feel you put a really good amount of work into your swap.

  • You gave me a favorite, or very nice, extra. (I try to be diligent about this but sometimes the playful child in me comes out and I can't help it! You get a heart; you get a heart! Everyone gets a heart! LOL.)

  • New: you've sent a wishlist goodie.


This is for me to keep track and others to keep accountability.

I receive:

Comment: Did not receive.
Comment: Messaged re: this missing swap on Nov 12, 2017. Still marked unread.
Comment: Hello Samantha, i received your envelope this morning after so many months. Thanks for the 3 postcards and for used stamps, but the swap was for "any small NEW item like a key holder, fridge magnet, souvenir from a trip." I'm sorry but i cant give you a 5 because it's not fair for other partners who sent exactly what the swap wants.
