I'll be taking a leave of absence from SB during July to get married and buy a house!
In 2008/2009 I had an old swapbot account (way back machine link above!) and it looks like I flaked. Holy crap, I am sorry. I owe these users swaps and can't get into the old account until the admins merge, so...If you have been contact with the users below (they haven't been active for awhile) and have their address please let me know!
I've messaged these users as of 5/15/2018 and hope to hear from them soon! I got a little excited and messaged one user twice. The point is, I want everyone to know I screwed up, I'm not hiding it, but that you can trust that 10 years is a long time and I've grown a brain since then.
You can also check out this forum discussion or pm me with any questions about my credibility!
Hi! I live in Wichita KS with my soon to be husband and our chihuahua Ezra. I spend most of my day in front of the computer looking at spreadsheets, but in the evenings I take time to draw in my planner - an a5 Hobonichi Cousin - or watch a documentary on Netflix.
I’m a huge fan of Japanese stationary and I hope that next year I’ll be able to visit Tobichi in Kyoto or Tokyo! I’ll have to stop myself from buying washi tape because as much as I like looking at it, I sure don’t know what to use it for!
I'm currently learning how to do brush lettering! If you're inclined to send extras, I wouldn't mind trying out your favorite brush pen!
I also love handmade leather goods that go along with planners, pens, stationary, and general office goods. I'm currently learning what the heck an ATC, Inchie, and all these other acronyms are, so SEND ME YOUR ADVICE!
I'm learning that people around here LOVE note cards so I'll probably start collecting them. Send handmade ones if you prefer!
Please send me letters with juicy gossip! I work alone and miss the camaraderie of just talking crap on people! I prefer long letters over note cards. #happymail is cool with me, and I've just started an IG for all the mail that goes out/comes in. Follow me if you want @snarkandstringmailart If you'd rather not have your items posted, let me know when you send! I always blur/cover the addresses of my sendees/senders!
Speaking of Privacy! DO NOT GIVE MY ADDRESS TO ANYONE IN PRISON OR SHARE IT WITH ANYONE FOR ANY REASON I don't think anyone should have to say that, but. Here we are...

Anything handmade is super neat! I have a project in mind that calls for items related to space, mysticism, alchemy, or dirigibles! PM me for a private swap for these items or if I've sent you something in the past and we have the same sort of aesthetic and you want to trade!
No Tea - unless the swap specifically calls for it, in which case I like full bodied teas over herbal ones.
No Used Items
No Reused/Modern Magazines - Unless it's Flow Magazine
No 'Teacher' Stickers
No Heidi Swapp or Heidi-Swapp- esq extras (I'm more of a Tim Holtz fan, tbh)
No risque items - cuss like a sailor, but don't send me anything with 'organs' on it. :)
If you're going to send extras I appreciate sour and foreign candy, but otherwise I'd rather not receive edibles or drinkables.
Also, please don’t send my dog anything. We recently went to the doggie dentist and lil buddy had to get some teeth taken out thanks to some questionable Amazon Prime toys. Not something he or I would like to go through again.
