The Latest

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.

Updated January 16, 2020

Sending Policy

  • 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.

Cards I really like:

  • 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

  • illustration/art

  • anything linen

  • vintage ads/posters/design/cars

  • windmills

  • inspirational quotes

  • 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

  • Vanity Fair

  • anything Art Nouveau

  • anything mail/postal related

  • the Pantone series

  • real photo postcards

Touristy postcards I don't mind:

  • vintage Florida

  • anything Hawaii or DC

  • panoramic

  • castles

  • night view

  • pretty cityscape or landscape (with no text or very very little text...like just the name of what it is)

Postcards I do not like:

  • touristy (with writing on front)

  • multi view

(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.)

A to Z

A - antique, art nouveau, all natural, address labels, ATCs, animation

B - brads, breads, board games, buttons, b&w

C - cheese, chocolate (preferably dark), coffee, comedy, coins (anything before 1970), chic, Christmas tags/bags (please no Santa), coloring postcards

D - dancing, double sided tape, Dunkin' Donuts

E - earrings (studs), ephemera, embellishments

F - floral

G - gold, glue rollers, gel pens, glue dots

H - hypoallergenic, handmade envelopes, hot air balloons, holiday themed items, hot chocolate (especially dark chocolate)

I - illustration, icons, inchies

J - jewel tones

K -

L - lime green, lighthouses

M - movies, mint, modern, metallic

N - notecards

O - organic

P - pop tops (soda tabs), polka dots, parasols, postage stamps

Q - queens, quotes (inspirational and comical)

R - RAKs (giving and receiving), rhinestones, rub-on transfers, Reese's (especially the holiday ones), resin

S - stripes, squares, silver, shadow boxes, stamps (postage), summer, the sun, steam punk, sweets, salty snacks

T - turtles, teal, TOMS, tea (flavored, black, green, red, white)

U - umbrellas

V - vibrant colors, vintage, vegetarian/vegan food

W - white house ornaments, watercolor markers, water, windmills, women in history, Washington DC, wood burning

X - xacto knife

Y - yellow

Z - zumba


Things I can always use:

  • glue sticks (the Elmers style or glue gun - not the colored ones, but the regular white/clear if possible)

  • black fine or ultra fine tip Sharpies

  • unused stamps in any denomination

  • unused Christmas postcards (I've never seen them in the stores here)

  • handmade envelopes in all mailable sizes, but especially larger than 4x6

  • personalized swap cards

  • rub on transfers

  • self adhesive rhinestones

  • roller glue/tape or glue dots

  • flavored black tea

  • gel pens (especially glitter ones)

  • 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.)

More Swaps

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!

Comment: You stole my heart with the great lighthouse postcard! We are making a two week trip to explore the UP in Michigan this summer. I hope to see many lighthouses!
Response: Oh wow! What a wonderful coincidence. I hope you get a chance to see a bunch!
Comment: I really liked the faux stamps. The envelope was opened on the side. So I'm not sure if I received everything. I did get the mini envelope inside with the stamps and postage stamps. Thanks for the sticky notes.
Response: Oh no! I'm so glad you got anything at all. I hope it was everything, but honestly I don't recall what I sent, because I join so many swaps at once. I'm happy you liked the stamps I made.
