About Me

8/6/2021: I have been having some issues with my post office and receiving my mail. Lots have been marked with "return to sender" although the addresses are correct. I am working on getting my mail and rating my partners. Don't worry I have not forgotten about you all, it's just taking me a while to get to. Thanks for understanding :)

4/1/2021: My address has been updated! I'm so excited to be back and swapping/ hosting again! Thank you to all my Swap-Bot pals who have shown me so much support and optimism! You are all awesome :)

3/15/2021: Hello SB Pals! The past year has been so crazy, as many of you know I was away from Swap-Bot for quite some time. I am so happy to say I am finally able to start swapping again. I am in the process of getting a new PO Box, until then I will be joining/ hosting only online/email swaps. I cant wait to get started!

8/29/2020: Hello SB Pals! Thank you to everyone who reached out to check up on my this past week. I am so grateful to be part of a community that, although we may be miles apart, still genuinely cares for one another. I am sad to say I will be taking a break from Swap-Bot to deal with some unfortunate family situations. I will be sending out the last few swaps I am currently a part of but will not be joining any more for a while. I hope to be back soon. For those of you who have been a part of my Photo Journal/ Haiku For You/ Scavenger Hunt Swaps- you are absolutely welcome to continue and host your own. Thank you everyone and hope you are all safe and well

Penpal

I love to penpal and meet new people from all over! I try to make my letters as creative and unique as possible! I wanted to branch out from penpaling so I decided to join swapbot. My penpal account on instagram is the same @arimails so feel free to follow me on there.

ATC

I absolute love the idea of ATCs, it's like a collection of other peoples artwork from around the world and I think having that is so creative. I have a very large collection of ATCs and am looking for new ways of storing/displaying them, any helpful ideas are appreciated! I mostly do hand-drawn/ hand-painted or collage style ATCs. I put my whole heart into making these and I hope that whoever gets them, enjoys receiving them as much as I enjoyed making them

ATCs that I'm missing in my collection:

I have recently been doing some ATC Coins, which is such a cute twist on regular ATCs. I would love to swap more of these types and start an ATC Coin collection as well!

Postcard

I have a growing collection of blank postcards, and although I do prefer that they are not written on, I do still love and appreciate receiving postcards from my swapbot friends! I like all types, currently collecting all the different types of Little Mermaid Ariel postcards from Disney's Wonderground Art Gallery. I love love love artsy kinds and space/ underwater types. I also really like Sci-Fi postcards. Vintage/ Retro/ Black and White.

I do not collect any city or state postcards.

Jewelry

I recently started hosting my own jewelry swaps! I have a huge collection of store bought and handmade jewelry and wear some type every day.I have been extremely impressed by all the things I have received from my partners and am so grateful for everything I've learned.

If you are sending to me, I will love anything no matter what but here is a bit more about me: I have my ears pierced and love long dangly earrings. I like wearing simple necklaces. My choker size is about 34 cm. My ring size is 5 1/2. My anklet size is about 26 cm. My bracelet size is about 16 cm.

Swaps

I will always send my swaps and I will always rate my partners.

If I haven't rated, it is most likely I haven't checked my PO Box yet or I haven't received the swap yet. I will always private message my partners before rating down. I understand people may get unexpectedly busy or there may be some delays due to the post office that are just out of our control. Although I do appreciate my partner letting me know of any problems ahead of time, I believe everyone deserves a second chance and am always happy to receive a resend.

I ask that if there are ever any concerns with my swaps, my partners message me before rating low. I always try to go above and beyond with my swaps but if my partner ever feels like what I sent is unsatisfactory or never received it, I am always willing to do a resend.

A Friendly Reminder: Please make sure to always put enough postage on your packages. I have been receiving a lot of swaps with postage due recently. I am a pretty lenient and understanding person and just ask for others to be considerate. If a partner receives a swap from me with postage due, I will try my best to correct the mistake so please let me know before rating :)

Ratings

I received a 3 rating for lateness on a swap (Stuff the Mailbox #13- 20 partners). Although my swap was sent out on time, one of my partners swap was postmarked late. After messaging my partner and explaining what may have been the problem, weekends and holidays, my partner believed it to be unfair and so my rating remains.

I received a 3 rating for lateness on a swap (Stuff the Mailbox #17- 20 partners). "What I find interesting" is that it was only from 1 of my 20 partners because they originally claim it was ONE day late. Although I sent them all out at the same time and by the deadline.

I received a 3 rating on March 2021 from a swap that was done in August 2020 (Would you rather- email swap). My partner messaged me in October 2020 asking about a resend. As mentioned in my profile, I had been away form Swap-Bot since August 2020 until March 2021. My partner accepted a resend and changed rating from 1 to a 3.
