I'm back after a year away traveling and I'm ready to start swapping again. I'll tread lightly to start, but I'm happy to be back.
I much rather prefer real postage to the metered, if you have it. I love the post office and stamps.

I do hit sent once I place something in the mail, so it might be postmarked a day later.
If you think I should have received and rated your swap, but haven't please reach out and contact me. It may be that I have not received it yet or something was wrong with the the package and I preferred to not rate you versus giving you a lower rating. Sometimes it's because there were several swap partners and I wait to rate them all at one time (it's just easier that way since I use my phone).
If you have anything that fits into my A to Z list below, then that works for me.
Women in Science (love this series of postcards; The ones that I have are: Jane Cook Wright • Vera Rubin • Gertrude Elion • Ada Lovelace • Lise Meitner • Mary Anning • Hertha Ayrton • Rosalind Franklin • Joan Beauchamp Proctor • Emmy Noether)
Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls posted series
Anderson Design Group art cards or similar style
black & white
adult coloring postcards (uncolored if you are sending them in an envelope.) If you are not sending it in an envelope, please color it.
almost any featuring women
anything Art Nouveau
anything mail/postal related
the Pantone series
real photo postcards
anything Hawaii or DC
pretty cityscape or landscape (with no text or very very little text...like just the name of what it is)
touristy (with writing on front)
(I will not rate down if you send me something from my dislike list. I understand that stashes are limited. Sometimes I have a hard time finding something profile based for my partner, so I can imagine that everyone else is in that same boat. Any postcard you send will be fine.)

unused non-touristy postcards
any coins before 1960
Dunkin' Donuts gift cards with any amount (there is a homeless woman that is allowed to sit in my location and sip on a cup of coffee everyday. I would love to continue her suppply so that she doesn't have to spend any extra time outdoors if she doesn't have to.)
Even if I had all the time in the world, I'd probably never host a swap. That's why I give a star to every host in each swap I join, so long as nothing goes wrong. That being said, please host more of the following if you can...
ATCs: 50 states, presidents, alphabet, women in science/art/history/etc.
Postcards: ad/freebie, dirty/torn/get rid of, coloring, your own photography made into a postcard, card front turned postcard
Christmas cards all year (this way I have a ton to open at Christmas time)
Thank you to anyone who hosts these!
