About Me

Hello! This month is my one year anniversary on swap-bot! That is so exciting! I wanted to update my profile a bit since I am no longer a "newbie!" While I still have much to learn about interacting and participating on this site....I am proud of how far I have come :D I look forward to many more anniversaries to come on this site, so thanks for taking the time to look through my profile and I look forward to swapping with you in the future (or right now, depending on why you are reading my profile!) (•◡•) /

I love exchanging letters (snail mail), goodies, and the like through the mail, and have been trying to get my various family members and friends to do it with me over the past year or two. However, not everyone is interested (shocker, I know), so I am hoping this will be that creative outlet for me :) ⊂( ・∀・) 彡 ✉︎

My favorite thing about my life is being the mom to my young adult daughter. We do many (read: most) things together, like going to museums, libraries, parks, road trips, and shopping. She even got me into K-pop over a decade ago and many of our adventures include K-pop in some form. She keeps me young, or at least reminds me to keep a more youthful frame of mind, especially with things like being hopeful, optimistic, and trying to not get too cynical about life. We own a precious, but bully of a doggo. He is a rescue Doberman who thinks he rules the world, cause he does. He bullies us with his aggressive cuddles and then his disdain when he is done with us.

Some other things I enjoy doing include scrapbooking, knitting, sewing, reading, journaling (I have kept a journal since I was 11 years old), photography, cross-stitching, polymer clay, and gardening (both indoor and out). Because of scrapbooking I have a large stationery, sticker, and whatnot collection, but I am ALWAYS looking to add to it! So I guess, add collecting stationery-like things to the list of things I like to do. Things I don't enjoy doing include cooking (although I tolerate baking because - sugar), cleaning/chores, exercise (although I do it because it is good for me or some nonsense like that), and talking on the phone. Things I want to learn in the near future include crocheting and digital scrapbooking (I am sure I will add to this list in the future).

Swapping Tidbit

I am sure this section will continue to morph, be updated, and deepen over time. But as for now, one of the most important things to know about swapping with me is that several people in my household have pretty severe asthma, so no strong smelling anything. I prefer most everything as fragrance-free as possible. I know it is impossible to live completely fragrance-free, but we do a pretty decent job at it in this household. Much appreciated in advance. ヽ(´ー`)ノ。o○ Thanks~


--Letters (snail mail), whatever form it comes in, like quick post cards, long in-depth letters, and everything in between. I love learning about/connecting with others, so I am really interested in pen palling (I've seen the term pen friends floating around this site. While I have not heard of that term before, it sounds lovely). 🐌💌

--All things stationery-related, like papers, stickers, washi tape, die cuts, pens, markers, coloring pages, post cards, sticky notes, inks, stamps, punches (you get it, the list goes on. Plus you may know of something fabulous that I have yet to discover. I am always willing to learn about other forms of stationery-related goodies).

--Regarding the above love of stationery, I love all sorts of themes, including cutesy/Kawaii (my daughter has been collecting stickers for almost 2 decades now, so our cute collection is nothing to sneeze at), animals, food, botanicals, vintage, people, holidays, cartoons (in short, I rarely meet a sticker/washi tape/sticky note that I do not love). That being said, I'm not into gory, horror, or scary (I spook easily!)

--Anything plant related (I recently went from 4 plants to over 100 in about a year's time. I'm a little addicted). I can discuss anything plant related ad nauseam, so beware :) ˚𖡼𖤣𖥧𖡼𓋼𖤣𖥧𓋼𓍊

--Anything book/learning related (I love learning and you will usually find my nose buried in a book. I also find the smell and environs of libraries comforting and will definitely hide in one when stressed). It would be easier to write the list of things I don't like to read, which is horror/gory. Other than that, I am willing to give most literature genres a try. 📚

--All things art and craft related. The other place I escape to when stressed is the museum (it is a safe space, surrounded by beautiful things). I, myself, cannot draw a proper stick figure, but truly appreciate others' artistic endeavors.

--Music is another destresser for me. I have very eclectic music interests, being raised by parents with very dissimilar music tastes, I learned to love many diverse genres. This includes, but is not limited to: jazz, blues, classical, opera, pop, rock, rap, hip hop, folk, and yes, even "elevator music." I also like to challenge myself with music i don't appreciate right away. I give it some time, see if it will grow on me. And lastly, the above mentioned K-pop, with which I share a love of with my daughter. Should any of you share a similar interest in K-pop, but have no where to rant about it, let me know! We can rant away together :) ੈ✩・:˚:✧。♬♪

--Old movies, I love older movies (we're talking the "Golden Era of Hollywood" and older), especially musicals. I danced throughout childhood and adolescence and admire the dancing skills of others. I also enjoy really bad sci-fi, from like the 50's and 60's (you know, the kind that is so bad that it is good?). I don't tend to do dramas, as life has enough dramatics in it for me, so I don't usually find it entertaining to watch. And again, no horror/gory/scary movies (unless it is a silly/funny spoof of one).

--Tea is acceptable (for me to share with my family...I drink it to bond with my family, but may or may not enjoy the liquid myself. We look for different teas for the family to try when traveling, or even going to a new store, and that has been a lot of fun).

--Some beauty related items, pampering oneself is always lovely. But again, the scents can be an issue. I have pretty dry skin that thinks it is constantly at war with the world at large. I try to convince it otherwise, but it mostly does not listen!

--Items from differing cultures, backgrounds, and the like. I grew up as a military brat, living in many places overseas, before returning stateside as an older child. I loved it, learning about people, cultures, viewpoints! I am interested in just about anything on this topic, such as stories, personal experiences, your love for your own culture, food, candies, traditions, trinkets, post cards, whatever, I am not picky when it comes to what people want to share about their culture. I love it all

-Similar to the topic above, within the U.S. there are different cultures, varying from region to region, state to state, even city to city. I adore roadtripping across the country and immersing myself in the culture, lifestyle, and experiences in different parts of the U.S. So please feel free to share your love of your state/city with me, in any form that floats your boat.

--That is all for now, I will update, clean up, add to this list in the future, as I gain more experience and know-how with this site and swapping! ♡( ◡‿◡ )


-It bears repeating that I prefer all items entering my home to be as fragrance free as possible, as several members of my family have more severe asthma and cannot breathe with most scents assaulting their lungs.

--As for other dislikes, I do not have an extensive list as of yet (only a year in, I am still learning). I have listed some things above in my loves/likes section (as exceptions to what I enjoy). But as for a more in-depth list, I am not sure what is possible to dislike yet, so appreciate, in advance, your patience with me as I learn the site and become more experienced with swapping. I will update this list in the future.. ( ^◡^)っ ♡

Comment: And time for the second swap! XD Once again: Thank you very much for the cute goodies and I always love to put the best pieces aside, to use them for my diary. Dating back your families history is such an interessting and fascinating topic! I love to hear from you about it and the 16th century for your husbad... wow, that's amazing! o.O Have a wonderful time and thanks for your letters! Yours, Maxi

Comment: Dear Angela, thank you very much for your nice letter and the washi tape samples. ^.^ In terms of allergies against pets: A friend of me has huge problems with feathers and what you wrote about your daughter reminds me of her expierence, when picking up a feather in the zoo and almost choking, when her body reacted. - Thankfully it stopped, as soon, as the feather was removed and the zoo keepers had actual medicine ready (intended for thos allergic against bees and wasps). Anyway, now I'm going to open my second letter I got from you today. ^.^

Response: Yay! So glad you got and enjoyed the swap! I had fun decorating the envie, glad you liked it also :D

Response: Yay! I am so glad you got and liked the swap! I agree, it is quite lovely to swap with someone new, especially if you are getting to know them through a longer note or letter :D

Comment: Dear Angela, thank your very, very much for this wonderful swap and the cute goodies. ^-^ It`s wonderful to hear from you again and this year I happened to be in a high spirit for christmas, but this came partly from finally the christmas markets being held again (the first time since 2019!) and I love these places. :-) I can relate to your daughter very well: I've been grown up with the Sailor Moon anime and only later read the manga. It's an... interessting story, I would say and okay, but it's the 90's anime I higly favour and per chance I'm currently rewatching it, as a colleague has all the DVDs in German sub. It's childhood pure sitting on my couch, having dinner and humming "Sag das Zauberwort...". XD Have a wonderful weekend! ^^ Yours, Maxi
Response: Oh, I am so glad you finally got the swap and enjoyed it!!! I had fun writing you again (and again, and again, hopefully you will be getting your 2 other letter swaps soon!) I am glad you were able to go to the Christmas markets again! That is awesome :D Also, my daughter was tickled that you are watching the Sailor Moon anime! Said something about nostalgia and good taste! :D Hope your weekend was beautiful <3
Comment: Thank you so much for the adorable, BTS card and all the extras. I don’t have a favorite either. I love them all the same!
Response: Yay, so glad you got and liked the swap! I love creating these different swaps for you <3

Comment: Thank you for the Envie is fun! Kuromi is my one of my favorite from Sanrio! I had never seen those Star Wars postcards before, what a fun treat! Thank you!!
Response: Yay! So glad you got and liked the swap! I love Kuromi too, so adorable! I also thought the Star Wars postcards were so fun, glad you enjoyed it too :D
Comment: Nice to meet you too, Angela. Thanks for the nice letter, postcards for me, and stickers for Olivia. Best wishes, Rich
Response: Yay! So glad you got and liked the swap! Thanks for the kind words and rating :D

USAFwife rated for FLL: InCoWriMo 2023 #3 on Feb 22, 2023
Comment: Thanks so much for your letter! I think one of the postal workers dropped it in the rain puddles, so it's currently drying out! But it looks like the writing is mostly still there, so hopefully I get to finish reading it soon! :)
Response: Oh no! Hopefully you will not have too much trouble reading it! Between my "lovely" (she says sarcastically) handwriting and smeared, water-stained ink, you are in for a real adventure! Glad you got it anyway.....?
Comment: Thank you for the card, the note and the tuck ins. I love it all.
Response: Yay! So glad that you got and loved the swap (◕‿◕)
Comment: You always hit the honey-sweet spot with your swaps!! I love the stickers you choose - even the Sweetwater sticker LOL. As a matter of fact, I was talking to a girl today about how I use to live 20min from Sweetwater and how I do not miss the annual rattlesnake round up!! I did have intentions of going at least once to get over my fear but oh well, didn't get the chance as COVID took away my last 2 opportunities (2020 & 2021) before I moved out of state! Plus the 2021 North TX Snovid crisis - no electricity, no water, no rattlesnakes for me!! Thank you for the lovely goodies and I hope you had a Happy Valentine's Day. Hobi's birthday is this weekend, so I will be paying homage to my bias!! xxMuggleMom
Response: Ohmygoodness! I am so glad you got and liked the swap!!!! I loved putting it together for you! I adore being your swap partner <3 Fun fact, the Sweetwater sticker actually comes from Indiana, where we lived before moving to TX! So glad you enjoyed it too! Also, Happy Birthday to our sunshine Hobi!!!!
Comment: Thanks for such a thoughtful swap! The envelope is too cute and arrived right on Valentine's Day! I love it! Everything is just amazing! The stickers of the girls are adorable. Cards and postcards are great! I have seen that artwork at the Modern - it is a **really** nice museum! Thanks for spoiling me and I hope to swap with you again!! Happy Valentine's Day! xoxo
Response: Yay! So glad you got and loved the swap! Makes my day! I enjoyed putting it together for you, as well as decorating the envie, to make it special :D I hope to be partnered with you again and Happy Valentine's Day to you too <3
