10/10/20: I'll slowly be cutting back on swaps especially during snowy season to reduce my commute to the Post Office :( and also to spend time with my family during Thanksgiving and the holidays. Hopefully I'll keep my word lol, sending and receiving happy mail is so addicting!
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 because I like discovering interesting stationeries from other countries!! So, if you are from a foreign country, I would love to receive some stationery that you can only find locally! :)
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 to journal early in the morning with my coffee. I do junk journals where I do mostly collaging with stickers, rubber stamps, washi tapes, and journaling cards. My journal entries consist of recipes I want to try, list journaling prompts, 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 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- botanical/floral/sakura, woodland theme (birds/fall/autumn/nature/bees/owl/🍄/fox), Valentine’s/XOXO/hearts, under the sea/beach/mermaids/nautical theme, kawaii (the ones with the little cute eyes haha), constellation/celestial (stars, planets, galaxy), desserts/sweets/pastries/baking/kitchen, Hawaiian Theme (hibiscus, flamingo, pineapple, seashell, coconut, toucon, hula girl, volcano etc.), winter theme NOT Christmas (ie snowflakes, snow, hot chocolate, fireplace, reindeer, sweaters)
Looking forward to receiving and sending happy mail. :) And just a fair warning, I tend to sticker bomb/decorate my envelopes to my swap partners haha! My daughter also helps me decorate these envelopes too.

If at anytime, you do not receive my swaps, please please message me! I am happy to resend another. I am never late with my swaps and am on time with meeting swap deadlines. If their are multiple swap partners for a swap, I mail altogether at the Post Office. I do read all my swap partners profile and tailor accordingly (even sender’s choice swap) because I want to brighten everyone's day with happy mail!
