About Me

1/2022: A NOTE TO HOSTS: I have a late swap on my dashboard "💌 Stuffed Happymail #2". My partner lives in Australia, who is actually the host of the swap @mymerakidesk Sending packages is currently suspended to Australia, therefore I cannot send a package from USA to Australia. Swap will be sent when USPS lifts their suspension. Thank you. More information can be seen here: https://about.usps.com/newsroom/service-alerts/international/

Hello! I'm a woman living in the US working as a financial accountant by day and a snail mailer at night!

I prefer doing INTERNATIONAL swaps!!! I gravitate towards journal swaps, postage stamps swaps, sticker sheet swaps, random destash swaps, journal supplies swaps, and ATC swaps. But exchanging creative/handwritten journals created by people are by far my favorite swaps. :)

I've been married to my husband for 19 years! I enjoy spending time with my husband and my kids (2 sons and 1 daughter)! My family and I like to spend time with our dog, our puppy is starting to get old (noooo). During my downtime on the weekends, I like papercrafting and journaling early in the morning with my coffee. In my journal, I do mostly paper collaging with ephemera, rubber stamping, washi tapes, and journaling cards. My journal entries consist of recipes I want to try, list journaling prompts, art journaling and just my inner thoughts and life in general.

I found swapbot on accident! I did quite a bit of sticker swaps on a Facebook group, and swapbot was briefly mentioned. I was addicted to sending and receiving happy mail, but I wanted more than just receiving stickers. I'm very glad I found this site because I have a tendency to hoard stationery supplies and now it is forcing me to share my stationery goodies!

I used to live in Hawaii and I had access to unlimited Japanese stationery, but I've moved to a different state and I miss it so much.. I LOVE Japanese, Korean and Taiwan stationery!!

I LOVE STICKERS!! I have a stash in a Size 9 Nike shoe box. I'm an avid sticker collector :). I would like to share my sticker collection as well as do some mail art with my rubber stamp and washi tape collection.

MY FAVORITE AESTHETICS/THEMES:

  • cottagecore

  • birds! flamingos, owls, hummingbirds, colorful birds, cardinals, llamas, anything birds!

  • botanical illustrations/floral/mushrooms/sakura, woodland theme (birds/fall/autumn/nature/bees/owl/🍄/fox/gnomes)

  • Hawaiian Theme (hibiscus, flamingo, pineapple, seashell, coconut, toucon, hula girl, volcano etc.)

  • coffee theme

  • snails/snail mail happy mail themes

  • Favorite Colors: nude, earth colors, any shades of blue (royal blue, teal, turquoise), baby yellow, orange, pink, silver, lavender, mint, periwinkle, jewel tones

Tl;dr: I'm practically happy with any paper related goods and journals :) (just NO SCRAPBOOK RANDOM PIECES OF PAPERS, NO LOOSE MEMO SHEETS/LOOSE STICKY TABS, NO FOLDED LETTER SETS AND NO USED LOOSE LETTER SETS please)

NOTE ON INTERNATIONAL SWAPS: The maximum months I will wait for an international swap is 4 months. It does happen (but very rarely) a swap appears 5 months later. Most international swaps have arrived to me within the 1-3 months time period.

I wanted to stop and say thank you, so much, for the wonderful Ultimate Easter Basket swap you sent to me. I loved the bunny bag and all of the wonderful mermaid and nautical items. Those calligraphy markers are amazing and I'm in love with all the mermaid stickers. That dish towel is pretty extraordinary too!! Thanks for making my Easter more special and for joining the swap! 💜
