Nice to meet you!

✈️❤️👍✈️❤️👍✈️❤️👍✈️❤️👍✈️❤️👍✈️❤️👍✈️❤️👍✈️❤️👍✈️❤️👍

Hello! My name is Ilyse. I'm 67, have been married for 38 years and I'm mom to 2 grown kids, who are still my "babies". I've been pen-palling and swapping all my life and love it!

I love to travel and I'm happy to meet people via snail mail, online and on social!

I live in Virginia, on the east coast of the US...we're 2 hours inland from the Atlantic Ocean, 2 hours south of Washington, DC, and 2 hours east of the mountains.

I sell software and digital signage for VISIX, and I'm also excited to be a part of an internet radio station THE BREEZE. I host the mid-day shift, 10 AM - 1 PM Eastern time and invite you to check it out. You can listen right on the website.

In case you're wondering...My name is pronounced the same way as 'what you sign when you rent an apartment': A-LEASE. Now you know 😁 us

Things I love

I ❤️ Summer, hot weather, beaches, lighthouses, tropical flowers, palm trees, trade winds, volcanoes and anything Hawaiian.

Christian themes are welcome. Scripture, devotionals, journals.

Favorite colors: Ocean hues, Jewel tones or Pastels - Bright or soft. Earth tones in Fall.

ATC's, Postcards, Pretty stationery.

Anything wine-themed or coffee-themed!

Dogs & puppies, sloths, kittens, pandas, giraffes, owls, deer, eagles, sea life, birds and butterflies.

Handmade things with extra love!

Motivational or cute sayings, stickers, ephemera, stationery, planner and scrapbook supplies, journal supplies, Washi tape.

Papyrus, Rifle Paper Company, Lantern Press, Mary Englebreit, Suzy's Zoo, Hallmark, Dayspring, Punch Studio, Anna Griffin, Current, Life is Good.

I swap Friendship Books, Sticker books and Slams. I prefer "High Quality" or "Nice & Neat" FBs -- No sloppy books with jagged edges please. No label bags, lyrics, FSS, etc.. Thanks for sending nice books - I will do the same!

Other Interests: NY Times puzzles, Scrabble, technology, and photography. I spend way too much time on social media! Look me up!

Postcards

I ❤️ postcards!

**Beaches and tropical scenes

**The Northern Lights

**Hot-air balloons

**Mountains and waterfalls

**Rock-climbing and hiking

**Lantern Press cards

**Lighthouses

**Typography and Graphic Design

**Pretty churches, castles and historic buildings

**Children playing

**Animals

**City skylines

**Handmade art cards welcome

Not a fan of vintage postcards, unless they're from Hawaii.

Favorite Television

Outlander, The Rookie, Call The Midwife, Gray's Anatomy, Chicago Fire/Med, Hawaii 5-0, Shark Tank, Catfish, all the HGTV stuff and House Hunters or Buying Hawaii/Hawaii Life. And, don't ask why, but Married at First Sight, Love Is Blind, The Bachelor and Bachelorette too.

Dislikes

Please note - I'm very sensitive to cigarette smells, so please don't send swaps that have a strong odor.

Kiddie, reward or tiny stickers, poor quality notecards, dark-themed or evil things, out-of-season holiday items, candy or snacks. I don't do Halloween, but I love Fall and Thanksgiving.

Not a fan of the "Silent 5"!

The Golden Rule

Please rate promptly - I promise to do the same!

When I host swaps, I promise to angel any not received. I check profiles and swapping history, as well as rating consistency before assigning partners.

Good communication is key. If you're going to miss a deadline, let me know. I prefer quality over quantity and believe in accountability. If you don't receive something from me, or if you have a question about a swap I host or participate in, please PM or email me.

Overall, I'm easy to please and almost always enjoy and appreciate everything my swap partners share!

Guess what arrived today! Your CPG Quickie Sticker Slap #15 from December! and it looks good as new! It definitely brought a smile and I love that you wrote the date 12/9/23 because the postmark is smeared. It must have had a great time out in the real world, haha!
