The Latest

I really enjoy mailing and sorting through stamps to mail items. I like granting wishes, because that gives me an opportunity to destash while making someone's day at the same time. For me it is more about the mailing and the giving, so I'm very unlikely to write a personal note or make pen pals. It's just not my interest. But, I do try my best to skim through profiles to try to make what I'm sending as enjoyable for the recipient as possible.

I'm extremely liberal with my hearts, even if I don't like what you sent, but I feel like you tried. If I don't give you a heart, I hope you don't take it personally.

I much rather prefer real postage than metered, if you have it. I love the post office and stamps.

Updated April 29, 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).

Postcards

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 • Mae Jemison • Rachel Carson • Chien-Shiung Wu • Valentina Tereshkova • Rita Levi-Montalcini • Elizabeth Blackwell • May-Britt Moser) - I'm trying to get 2 of each, so if you only have one that I've already received, still send it!

  • 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. I have both sets by Millie Marcotta already, so am full up on those, thanks.

  • 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

  • coloring postcards that are mailed naked, but not colored

(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.)

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

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

  • 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: I have had a PC for this swap in my in box to rate for some time. There is no name or return address. By process of elimination, as far as I can tell, it would have to be from you, as you are the only one left to be rated for this swap. Thank you for the pretty PC. Have a great day and happy swapping!

Comment: Beautiful ATC and thank you for all the ATC-sized papers! I'm going to use one or two right now ;) Have a great day!
Response: You're welcome! I saw on your profile that you like crystals and thought I would take a go at drawing them. Felt a little bit like a disaster, but overall I think it turned out well.

Comment: Fun postcard (and I love that there's a recipe on the back too) and good answers! I think I also said that I wouldn't want to find cockroaches in the house. (Honestly, who would? lol) Stay safe and be well!
Response: 🤣 you're right! I can't imagine anyone would. You stay safe and well also!
