I try to check my mailbox at least once a week, sometimes more if I'm expecting a lot of swaps.
I rate once I've opened an item, however if I haven't left a rating and enough time has passed that it should have been delivered please contact me.
If I've sent something and not been rated I will get in touch too.
Communication is always welcome!
I have a cat and he is attached to me most of the time, for this reason if you are super allergic or someone in your house is please let me know so we can work something out with the swap coordinator.
Please call me RT! I'm 28, originally from Australia but now living in the US with my amazing husband and cat.
I love to craft, especially mail art and anything paper related. Making things that bring a smile to peoples day is always fun and swapbot gives me a great creative outlet to do just that.
My husband and I go to the movies a lot, a lot. So here are recent movies we've seen and shows I'm currently watching.
Coco (amazing! See it yourself or see it with your kids!)
Justice League (not bad, not great. Wonder Women is amazing, batman is there.)
Murder on the Orient Express (haven't read the books but now I think I might.)
Brooklyn 99 (funny, Gina grows on you)
The Punisher (eh, its improving)
Longmire (idk, but I'm on season 2 and still watching it so it has something)
Recently got a Nintendo Switch, so playing that thing into the ground.
Zelda: Breath of the Wild (omg, so amazing~)
That's it, this game has taken over my life. I haven't played the other ones but BotW is currently my all time fav.
South Park: The Fractured but Whole (finished it! Have one more trophy to get.)
Eternal Sonata (difficulty ramped up so I put it down because I can only take so much)
Favorites of ALL TIME:
Fallout 1, 2 and 4: Settlement Simulator (love this aesthetic)
Harvest Moon and its spiritual successor Stardew Valley
Ico & Shadow of the Colussus
Paper crafts is my jam, I love to make tags, notecard sets, and origami.
I'd love to get into sewing and pick up learning to knit once I have more space and a room that I can keep my cat out of.
I also like to draw and write and just generally create. I always feel more balanced when I've gotten to be creative. I'm always looking for things to try and be inspired by. So feel free to give me some recommendations.

Postcards: if you're sending one from your area I'd prefer it written on (tell me about the area if you're having trouble thinking of what to write), otherwise naked is great~
I'm also interested in what you're interested in so long as you tell me about it! I appreciate anything with effort put into it!
No neon sticky/post it notes or the light yellow kind
Nothing tropical themed, pool themed, nautical themed, beach themed or sports themed
Please no animal fur prints (tiger stripes, zebra stripes, etc)
I love hot drinks! When I was living in Australia my dad lived around the corner, we'd walk nearly every day when it was cold to get a hot drink or some steaming noodles (and in the summer it was frozen drinks and sushi).
So hot drinks have a special place in my heart, especially hot chocolate and tea (coffee doesn't do much for me). I'd love to try new varieties from all over the world, so feel free to send me some you got and didn't like, or ones you highly recommend I try, or even if it's just a name of one you like that you think I could probably find in the store myself, it's all good!
Things that I don't like (definitely):
Jasmine (the smell gives me headaches)
Articifial sweetener (I'm just so not use to it, whys it so sickly sweet!?)
I collect things:
Tarot Cards (trying to find a black and white set that I can love and also trying to build up the courage to make my own)
Funko Pops (have so many and no where to put them at the moment)
Hoodies of favorites (fallout for example)
Pens (especially anything that glitters!) Notebooks/Journals (and I feel bad for not really writing in them but they're so pretty!)
Mini Figures (from blind bags and such)
