About Me

I’m looking to connect on Instagram 📷 @heathershappymail https://www.instagram.com/heathershappymail/

INSTANT ❤️ = Envelope art, blue sky & clouds, hand lettering!

LIKE = Bright, joyful, fun! Doodles & Illustrations, modern art, rainbows 🌈, sparkle ✨, birds 🦜, raccoons 🦝, dogs 🐶, owls 🦉, cacti, anything nature 🌲, stripes, black & white, pop culture, post office/mail themed stuff, washi & interesting, unused stamps 📬! 🤩

DISLIKE = tea 🍵, meat/gelatin (marshmallow), pictures of meat (like turkeys and burgers) or animal abuse. 🐄🐷🐴🐓

If you'd like to get to know me a bit...

I’ve moved around a lot & have lived in Austin, Boston, New York City, Los Angeles & Istanbul, but now I call Houston home. I've worked in book publishing, as an ESL teacher & now do marketing for a university. I’m married, no kids but am a dog mom. I’ve worked in dog rescue & am kind of obsessed with dogs and animals in general! I'm a vegetarian and love all animals, including farm animals.

I LOVE Fall, Halloween and Christmas!

I’m definitely a child at heart and enjoy silly and funny stuff and small details. Swapping has been SO MUCH FUN to see all the beauty in details in the packages I get. And planning and sending swaps has been such a great creative outlet too!

I love to explore nature and take my dog to a beautiful nearby park & observe the birds, wildlife & constantly blooming, changing plants.

I've evolved over the time I've been doing swapbot. Less Dollar Tree since I started receiving the same items and cards back as I was sending out. Now I try to buy on Etsy and am always surprised by some of the value, especially with card sets. I've also been doing more doodles and mail art.

Likes & Dislikes


  • LOVE washi

  • Pop culture stuff, memes!!!, humor

  • Dogs, terriers

  • Black cats

  • Flowers, plants, cactus, trees

  • Birds, owls, raccoons, opossums, woodland creatures like deer & foxes

  • Camping, campfires, forest, pine cones, cabins

  • Blue sky and clouds. Stars & night sky, outerspace.

  • Magnolias!! are my favorite flowers/trees

  • Hot pink, polka dots, stripes, black and white, gold, RAINBOWS! 🌈 + GLITTER & SPARKLE!

POSTCARDS I've started swapping postcards this past year. I love nature pcs, illustrations, black and white, and interesting photography. But really anything is fine. I very open to a surprise.


  • Mixed media, collage, illustrations, acrylic painting, lino cuts, photography, line drawings, doodles


  • Meat, seafood, leather. So that extends to pictures of meat, fishing, hunting, too.

  • Along the same lines, I prefer not to get pictures of animals as carriage horses, in rodeos, zoos, circuses, dog sledding, etc.

  • Don’t love tea, pine-scented holiday candles or cinnamon-scented things

While I don’t dislike religion, I’m not religious so those items aren’t for me.

I LOVE having the opportunity to be creative and giving & doing swaps! I get just as much enjoyment if not more out of planning, preparing and sending swaps, although a mailbox full of happy mail is a pretty joyful thing! :)

Comment: The card you sent is Adorable, oh my gosh! And that stamp is so cool! ♥ And... Hmm, either of these could be true, but I REALLY want it to be "went swimming with sharks," so that's the one I'll pick! (Skydiving is super cool, too, though. I just think sharks are cute~)
Response: Yes! Went scuba diving in a swarm of sharks in the Bahamas. They "said" they weren't dangerous as long as we didn't threaten them or get in the way of the food they were feeding them. I think I'd be too scared to sky dive! lol!
Comment: Thank you for the great postcard, Heather! Stamps, the decorations and the egg doodle are so cute ;) Everything looks perfect together.
Comment: I received your swap today and thanks very much for the cute Bunny card with your nice note & sentiments, Bunny PC, Easter washi, the cut-outs, and Peanuts Easter sticker sheet. Love all! Thanks so much for joining my swap! I hope you have a wonderful Easter Sunday!
Response: Thank you for hosting! I always enjoy swapping with you. Happy Easter!

@takehimaway Hand lettering books got my attention! I'm trying to catch up on swaps after an insane month. Once I catch up, I'd like to do that. Thanks!
