About Parakeetmails

Thank you ladies for being super kind, sweet, & overall great people. @LavenderSprinkles @debtea2 (Angeled for me) @area51ufo1

BULLYING IS NOT TOLERATED. That includes spreading false information & threats. If you have any questions about me pertaining to any drama that's been passed, please feel free to message me, or ask. Too many people on here are quick to attack and assume.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Swapbot is my anxiety reliever ♡ so please do not take this amazing experience away from me. I NEVER flake. Please have patience if you're waiting for a swap from me! I will resend if necessary ♡ I rate generously and have patience, so all I ask is for you to do the same back. Thank you! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hiya! I'm Chana. I've been penpalling & swapping since 2018. I currently hold 350+ outgoing's and 350+ incoming's (check my instagram for reference), I love to swap journals, photography, handmade collages, zines, stickers & art. I have a big heart for mail art! I love love love receiving mail! If you could tell by my username, i'm an absolute bird maniac. I love birds, more particularly parrots. In my overall life i've owned 10 birds! So receiving bird related things make me extra happy. SQUAK!

I also hoard postcards, as I currently have 200 collected illustrational art postcards that I've either purchased from etsy, asian postcross, or supporting artists.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have an anxiety disorder, also recently diagnosed with Aspie. I am also recovering from Ana & Mia. So please have patience with me. Like seriously. Angry, mad, and mean people give me severe anxiety. Thanks in advance ;_;

Comment: Hi there Chana, thank you for the swap. Your meals looked delicious, and I enjoyed the reading the descriptions about the food and your family background. May I have the recipe for your biscuits? I have garbanzo bean powder I picked up on the discount grocery shelf that I want to use. I saw a recipe for brownies, but your biscuits look even better. I'm not Keto or Gluten Free, I like having more fiber in diet. Also, those pumpkin bars would be splendid with a cup of coffee.Thank you for participating. Have a wonderful summer!
Response: Thank you so much! I will message you the recipe ♡ I would have never guessed Garbanzo bean flour goes quite well for biscuits. And I definitely plan on making more pumpkin bars soon for sure! My sister just picked up coffee :]

Cute Profile #6 Have a chirpy day!

@kiddomerriweather Thank you for the support. Even the smallest of words are a significant help.♡

kiddomerriweather on Jun 5, 2020:

Glad to see you're back and hosting. :)

FeltPrincess on May 26, 2020:

I am really sorry about your uncalled for 1 rating. I had a 3 like that in 2016. No explanation. She disappeared. :(

heavree on May 22, 2020:

Hello. I hope you are doing well. I love all of the pictures on your profile. We have a lot in common. Thank you for hosting Positive comments #2. I’m sorry I misread the prompt and was a little late. During this corona virus business I like to quote Demi Lavato “ No matter what you're going through, there's a light at the end of the tunnel.” I really believe that. Happy swapping 😊

LiliLuv on May 21, 2020:

Good morning, Chana! What a beatiful name! I hope you have a beautiful day! Here the sun is shining and the birds are chirping. You would like the view from my apartment, I often have parrot sightings! I was so surprised the first few times I saw them, but my neighbor across the way has a bunch of parrots. I open my blinds in the mornings and often see one or two in the window across from me. Now that it has warmed up, he lets them out on his enclosed balcony, too. I often wonder what they think about the other birds in the neighborhood. :) Thank you so much for your positivity-focused swaps! The one about what is making me smile really helped me adjust my perspective the other day. It is a good reminder, especially in times like these, to focus on the good, however small it might seem some days. Thank you! You are a wonderful person and you are worthy of kindness. Most of all, be kind to yourself! I hope you have a wonderful day and stay well! <3

Despite what is going on in the world at the moment, know that it is okay to be you and be as happy as you can be. Stay safe and know that there are people out there that you can talk to. Always be kind and kindness will follow. Believe in yourself and who you are. Everyone needs kindness in their lives and through all this the kindness shines through. Keep doing what you are doing, you are doing great! 😊

I love all the birds on your profile, it made it so much fun to read though and made me smile! My sister has two finches and quail eggs at the moment. Thank you for running a fun and straight forward swap to brighten up people’s day 😊

All of the parakeets on your page make me so happy!!!
