My name is Tracey, born and raised in Montreal, Quebec and currently living in Toronto. I live in the west end of the city with my hubby, four daughters, my dog Loopy & three cats, Cynthia, Meadow & Dusty.
I love sending & receiving "snail mail". I LOVE MAIL ART! I have a great appreciation for cute, uniquely designed, pretty, colourful envelopes, letters & parcels. If you’re able to put more than one stamp on your envelope, that’s super awesome and will make my day :-) I love all kinds of stamps, they make me happy 😆
I enjoy and appreciate all types of creative art. Some of my favourite ways to express myself are through:
Not a list of demands, just some of my favourites - & surprises are great :-)

THE FOLLOWING IS FOR POSTCARD SPECIFIC SWAPS ONLY
If I’m lucky enough to receive an awesome handmade postcard from you, please feel free to send it in a clear protective sleeve so it doesn’t get damaged while travelling 💌
I truly enjoy the art of swapping. I always take the time to read my partners profile and see what I can create for them & what kind of goodies they like. Even when it’s “sender’s choice “. I always try to tailor my swaps to my partner as best I can. I want my them to be really happy when they open my mail 🙌🏼🥳 I put a lot of time and effort into my swaps. I prefer quality & thoughtfulness over quantity 🙌🏼 thanks in advance :-)
This swapper is "flake-free" - I always send my swaps out before the due date has passed and always make a trip to the post office to make sure that the correct postage is being applied to the envelope/ parcel. That being said, if you haven't received my swap way past the date, something has gone wrong in the post. Please contact me personally and let me know before leaving a poor rating
I always try and rate as soon as I receive your mail :-)
I give a heart if I think my partner has put time and effort into the swap - if they've thought about what they're sending, read my profile, chose items they know I would enjoy etc...
