About Me

Hello from Mississippi! My name is Beth! I am so appreciative of those swappers who take the time to send me happy mail ! Every bit of mail makes me feel special because someone went to the trouble just for me! :) Thank you all!

Things I love to do : I enjoy drawing, painting, and photography, gardening, driving/ sightseeing, long walks, writing stories and poems.

I'm in love with nature and all animals. I even love most insects and creepy crawlies!

I have 2 very spoiled Chihuahuas and one sweetheart pit bull, and a varying amount of cats since it's well-known in the stray cat world that a free meal can always be found at our house. :) I ADORE cats but am really allergic and have to take a lot of meds to have them.

I've been married to my best friend for 28 years and am the mom of 3 adult children and also work full time as office manager at our manufacturing company. I live on a used-to-be farm in a small town in Mississippi. I have also lived in Alaska, Missouri, Kansas, and Louisiana and have visited 20 states and parts of Canada. Hopefully that list will continue to grow!

About swaps

If I don't receive a rating by you in a reasonable time, I'll contact you to make sure you've received your swap. I never flake on any swap so if you don't get mail from me, something has happened in transit and I would appreciate the chance to resend. I rate swaps received as I open them to make sure no one is missed. I will never give a rating of 1 without first trying to resolve the swap! Please note that I mark sent when my swap gets dropped in the box at the post office. Mail dropped off in the evenings will be postmarked the next day, or on the following Monday if it's dropped into the box on Saturday evening or Sunday.

I like these!

I rate on the swap itself and am generous with hearts- but in case you just want to send something else or it's a profile based swap, here's some info about things I like.

  • a note about your day/ week/ where you live, etc.

  • tell me about your garden or pets!

  • a poem

  • pen or marker

  • foreign coins

  • miscellaneous regular size playing cards, any theme (Even one card I can add to the collection makes me happy!)

  • state magnets

  • cute keychains or key covers

  • anything kawaii

  • anything with pumpkins or snowmen on it

  • amigurumis or crochet patterns for cute ones

  • painted or drawn ATC’s

  • a postcard from your area

  • buttons

  • brooches

  • Christmas ornaments

  • anything Halloween

  • odd pieces of silverware

  • glass or semiprecious beads

  • thimbles

  • bobbins

  • pincushions

I do not care to receive:

  • Confetti or glitter that goes everywhere when the envelope is opened!! Seriously- just NO.

  • Scraps of paper- I have BOXES of scraps

  • Label bags, decos, x-slips, fbs

  • Recipes unless it's a great cookie recipe or I join a specific recipe swap =)

  • religious items/ crosses, but I'm ok with receiving religious holiday cards

  • teacher reward, wedding/ baby/ graduation stickers

  • stick on tattoos

  • tea (I'm very allergic!)

  • anything with cigarette smell

  • lotions or perfume (allergies again)

  • any kind of food/ candy

My Favorite Characters!

  • Fizzy Moon

  • snow leopards

  • fox

  • bunnies

  • squirrels

  • deer

  • horses

  • Chihuahuas

  • fantasy (dragons, elves, fairies, vampires)

Favorite Television

Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, Master Chef, So You Think You Can Dance, Gilmore Girls, Golden Girls, Game of Thrones, Ink Master, Breaking Bad, Million Dollar Listings (all of them,) Project Runway, Home Town, Sherlock, Call the Midwife, Grace and Frankie


I never played video games or anything when I was a child but I'm obsessed with Pokemon Go! I LOVE it!


I prefer postcards sent blank, in an envelope, to add to my collection. But if the swap is for naked, then I’m happy for those, too.

Some favorite subjects are:
* animals- any!
* anything autumn
* tourist
* landmarks
* landscapes
* USA states
* the ocean
* insects
* birds
* Disney
* Jetoy
* fantasy
* illustrations
* any of my favorite characters listed
* any holiday, especially Halloween
* art
* flowers/ gardens
* barns
* covered bridges
* mailboxes
* lighthouses
* steampunk
* Pokemon

By the way...

  • I'm very allergic to cigarette smoke so please don't send smoky items.

  • I promise to rate quickly for every swap I receive!

  • My goal is to give each swap partner mail that makes them smile :)

  • Oh, and if by some chance you get mail from me with postage due, please let me know and I will immediately mail you the extra stamps or money! Or I can send you the difference through paypal. But please be honest about this and not take advantage of my offer if there really was no postage due. I'm very particular about putting enough postage and weigh and calculate prices on the USPS site. However, I know that things can happen and there are differences of opinion among postal workers, so....

Kawaii Needs Its Own Section!!

Kawaii 101 for inquiring minds!

I love regular and mini note pads and loose sheets, envelopes, letter sheets, pencils, sticker flakes, buttons, deco and washi tapes, postcards if they exist (I've never seen any but who knows??) I love all the characters and themes except the poo ones, Zombitt, and the real children. I like the photo ones of animals and items, though! And all of these:

  • My newest love! ♥ Jinbei San! ♥

  • Hello Kitty ♥

  • My Melody ♥

  • Cinnamaroll ♥

  • Berry Puppy ♥

  • Kuromi ♥

  • Tokidoki ♥

  • Rilakkuma

  • Clover's Town

  • Sugar Bear

  • Kinoko No Mori

  • kawaii ghosts

  • fairytales

  • kawaii kitties, puppies, bunnies, bears

  • older Sanrio characters

  • really any kawaii except Zombitt and poo. Really.

Just because it's not on this list doesn't mean I don't like it! I may have not seen it yet! :)


Comment: Thank you for the awesome selection of goodies! A new map for my collection, and a sloth postcard? Very awesome :) The owl stickers are also very cute. It usually doesn't get too cold over here either, this winter we only got a few days of snow. It's usually a lot of rain and wind!
Response: I'm so glad you like the cards and stickers! Thank you for the nice comment and rating. =) It has gotten SO COLD here again which is not normal for us at all! I'm ready for spring!! =D

Response: Thanks for the nice rating! Happy New Year!
Comment: Hi Beth... Yes we got snow here in Pearland, it was so exciting! And thankfully my home did not flood during Harvey. But it was amazing to see people come together to help their neighbors. Thanks for the lovely card and all the PCs. Your photo PC of the moon is really cool! Thanks again and Happy Holidays!
Response: Is Pearland having this arctic weather like Mississippi??? It's crazy! I think if we have to swelter all summer, a mild winter should be our reward. LOL!!!!!!!! Thank you for the nice rating and comment! Happy New Year!

Comment: Thank you for the owl postcard - one of my favorites. There is an owl hike at an arboretum nearby tonight but it is too cold for me! You are so lucky to have seen two fly over you!! Magical indeed!! I have one book by Maeve Binchy on my shelf but I have never read it - I will have to try to now! Thank you so much!! : )
Response: Thank you for the nice rating and comment! I saw an owl hunting in the daytime recently and thought that was pretty odd. Maybe the cold weather brought it out for food? Happy New Year to you!

Oh, yeah, baby!

HippieChick on Dec 30, 2017:

Thank you for the adorable kawaii goodies. I was a casual collector in my 20's but it got a little crazy so I backed away. It is nice to have a small assortment available though.

Heirloom on Dec 27, 2017:

Wishing you a Super-Fancy New Year!

ChrisAnne on Dec 27, 2017:

Thank you for the Kawaii goodies. They are cute, but I'm just not sure I get the craze. I will definitely find a good use for all of my new goodies.

Bhindblueeyes on Dec 27, 2017:

Thank you for the kawaii!!!! What a surprise and lovely treat in my mailbox!!

fishsteak on Dec 23, 2017:

Thanks so much for the extra kawaii goodies for the FOPS swap. It's really nice of you to try and convert others to the kawaii life, haha. Although I don't need much convincing. Everything is really too cute!

Thank you for the cute Kawaii goodies from the FOPS Kawaii swap!

I have had a few people send me little bits of stuff every so often. There's a shop here at Walt Disney World in the Japan pavilion at Epcot that has a TON of these types of items. Makes me want to go there and buy some now!
