About Me

Happy 2024!

I still enjoy this site just as much as I did when I signed up in the beginning. I really read every partners profile and try to make them have a happy mail day. In case you have been my partner and I haven't thanked you enough please trust when I say I am so grateful! So many of you make this community a little pocket of happiness. Truly thank you so much for all the mail love 🧡

*Finally updated my wishlist have a look you may be inspired. 😉

I joined swap-bot January 2006! Over 17 years now oh my! So cool! My longest commitment yet 😆

My daughter Zoe Autumn was born September 2011, it was the most beautiful experience of my life, a lot of hard work, labor is NO JOKE, but it went quickly, therefore, I was able to go all natural! I'm madly in love!

My heart is full again, Hazel May was born in the Spring 2014...watching these girls grow and learn is nothing short of a miracle...

Please welcome my 3rd baby girl to the world born 8/10/15 little miss Parker Joy is here!

Mom to 3 wild, and vibrant world changing little darlings!

I see myself as someone who is quirky, silly, smart, sassy, nurturing, considerate, opinionated,and open-minded... I definitely beat to the sound of my own drum...

I have always had an odd obsession with the mail... It's true...I really, really like the mail, getting lovely postcards to packages gives me something to look forward to everyday! I love connecting intimately, yet anonymously...

I am always trying something new...I'm a DIY kinda gal, i compost, i reuse...i mow my own lawn... i secretly want to be a burlesque dancer... I try to live, laugh and love everyday! I'm known to dance in my car like it's my stage!

I grew up going to thrift stores and tag sales and continue to love to search for that one special item...

I love to decorate for holidays! I'm a homebody at heart!

THINGS I Always NEED/DESIRE:

*Address labels

*Anything GRINCH! My favorite character

*Small fairy garden items

*Lately my girls love skincare samples

*I could always use stamps!, I also love them on my mail!

*holiday items (all year)

*POSTCARDS (following are all my favorite themes)! new and un-used would be great, I'm into postcrossing, and mailart, so I will always find a use for them. Generally, I prefer non touristy postcards, random things to places, and love them sent naked. I don't mind ad/free cards as long as it has something to do with one of my likes:

Comment: I am the same way about Amazon. Too easy to buy things. I sometimes get in trouble, do you? Thank you so very much of thinking of me and sending me the tote bag. We have no trader joes and this is my first bag and I am loving it. I am thinking they have a different one for each state. Now i found another thing to collect, LOL. Wishing you a filled mailbox full of happiness. See you around swap-bot. Happy Easter.

Comment: Thanks for the letter and amazing goodies! Habits are a funny thing for me -- I've always thought "habit" means "it feels wrong if you don't do the thing, and the urge to get rid of that wrong feeling outweighs your laziness and/or dislike/resentment of the chore." But I just recently found out that, for most people, it's like a more complex form of muscle memory?? I don't understand how that works!
