About Me

I love to make mail-art/handmade postcards/ATCs. I dabble in collage, painting and drawing.I also like to write letters. I recently got into fountain pens and am very excited about pens/inks/paper!

My favorite color is orange, but blue and magenta are also nice.

I prefer zany, weird, funny, swear-y, silly things. Have a card you think is too inappropriate to send to somebody? You can send it to me! I like swearing, sarcasm, bad puns and terrible jokes.

Please, if you can, write a message (about whatever you want!) on whatever you send. It really brightens my day!

ALSO: If you have one, I would LOVE a picture of your cat! Please tell me his/her name. I want to start a "Cats of Swap-bot" photo album/glue book! (photos can be printed on regular paper or photo paper--either is fine!) Thanks thanks! And guinea pigs! I would totally be into a Guinea Pigs of Swap-bot album as well! :-D


PLEASE NO DIE-CUTS or scrapbook paper!

--orange (the color, not the fruit)

--unused US postage stamps (esp vintage/1970s)

-- donkeys and horses and cats and guinea pigs and woodland creatures (fox, rabbit, squirrel, wolf, chipmunk, etc) Especially donkeys! And Guinea Pigs!!

--Toronto Blue Jays, Toronto Raptors Anything related to the Toronto Blue Jays or Toronto Raptors would be so AWESOME!! and I could not thank you enough! Anything Toronto in general would be greatly appreciated!!

--Arizona, esp. Sedona

--Don't Mess with Texas & anything related to Austin

--Canadian things (eg: beavers, maple leaves, Toronto, Roots, True North) (but no hockey...)

--anatomical stuff: brains/bones etc.

--weightlifters/body builders/fighters/muscular people
--GLOW the gorgeous ladies of wrestling

--Cirque du Soleil

--Surrealist/Modern Art

--Magic the Gathering cards

--anything related to vinyl records/lps

--music playlists/record recommendations



--Ken-ken puzzles, Crypto-quotes, Beehive, etc. (not really a fan of Sudoku though...)

--Washi tape

--Japanese cutesy stationery/stickers (food with eyes, etc.)


--Deadpool, Hulk, Captain America and the Punisher.

--Bojack Horseman

--Stupid jokes: for example:
Q: What game do you play with a wombat?
A: Wom.

Q: What sort of shoes do frogs wear?
A: Open-toad. (Thanks to Vickyen for that gem!)

Please Do Not Send:

Please do not send me butterfly anything. (in real life they're fine, but I really really don't like them on paper, and I hesitated even mentioning it, but it became necessary when over the course of a month EVERY SWAP I RECEIVED had a freaking butterfly on it. I had to take a stand!) I love swapbot, but getting butterfly stuff in the mail makes me want to cry..

I will not rate you down if you send me butterfly things, but I might light them on fire.


I rate 5s and hearts. I don't do drama over a missing postcard or something mailed a few days late. I try to rate the day I receive, but sometimes I get swamped. If you're missing a rating please let me know.

Extras from my "likes" list are MUCH appreciated!, (thank you!!!) but please don't bother with random "extras" or junky tuck-ins you're "re-gifting".

I click "sent" when I put the swap in my mailbox and put the flag up. (My mailman is named Jim and he is the sweetest man in the world! He likes to see all the incoming and outgoing fun!)

Comment: What an absolutely fascinating piece. I'm curious about both Natasha and Rosita. The details gave a vivid mental image. Thanks for sharing!

Comment: Apologies for the late rate, as I thought I'd already done it. I really dug this piece. It felt very organic and true to life/form. Nicely done!

Comment: I love first car stories! This reminded me of my first car, a silver Volkswagen Golf which I still hold very dear. I loved reading this, it was very bitter-sweet and nostalgic.
Comment: Thanks so much for the lovely card & all the goodies, really thoughtful of you. Have a wonderful week, AnnaL.

Comment: LOVE the decorated envie, all the kitty stationery goodness (never too much for me!) and the nice note. I hope March brings sunny days for you, and plenty of chances to bust the blahs! :) I love your chosen blah- busters- right up my alley. I'd love to learn to crochet and make my own afghan! Thank you for a lovely swap :)

Comment: Love the goodies you sent! Thank you!
Comment: I'm real glad you jumped back into crafting! Awesome Zetti ATC. Classic eyes, and the head dress of leaves is a fantastic touch. Thanks for sharing your artwork and terrific envelope with me. Stamps are top notch.
InTheWoods rated for National Letter Writing Day! on Dec 20, 2019
Comment: It was an engaging letter. I enjoyed it :) I am planning to reply to you too :)
Comment: I agree - a nice relaxing soundtrack without words is different from a song with lyrics. And I second that glass of wine comment! :P I have never heard of pickleball! :o Also side note: what printer did you use to make the zink sticky pics? I am looking into the best sticky photo printer for my 2020 planners! :)
Response: The sticker printer I have is ancient. It's the first gen Zink: Dell Wasabi. It's more than 10 years old. It's the only one I've ever used, and I doubt it's "the best". :-)
IDreamOfAfrica rated for SMSUSA: Tell Me About ... #8 on Dec 5, 2019
Comment: Thank you for the genuine and meaningful handwritten letter that required some of your undivided attention and quality time. I am deeply touched. The beautiful un-used black and white extra-large rooster postcard is stunning and all the hen, baby chick, and rooster stickers are precious! I am truly humbled and honored to have been your partner. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity. πŸ’–β₯πŸ’žβ¦πŸ’•β§πŸ’—β™‘πŸ’“β™₯οΈβ€οΈβ€πŸ’˜αƒ¦πŸ’β£πŸ’˜πŸ’šπŸ’ŸπŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ’› Ξ΅Ρ—Π· Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ ❀ ƸӜƷ Ξ΅Ρ—Π·
