About Me

First, please reach out if you do not receive your swap in a reasonable time frame or if you happen to owe postage before down rating and I WILL make it right! I never flake, and will send on time. I will let you know if something out of the ordinary comes up. The mail system is not normal right now so please reach out to me!

Hello, my name is Beth and I am a swapaholic. I love to create and share all things paper, crafty and happy mail goodness.

I love granting & receiving wishes and RAK! It makes me so happy to send something via snail mail to make someone's day a little better.

I consider myself to have somewhat eclectic style, tastes and preferences. General aesthetics/ things my eyes love are:

~Abstract with bright colors

~Retro 80’s & 90’s

~Modern Bohemian

~Kawaii/Cute

~Mid Century Modern or

~Pop Art themed.

Less interested in vintage inspired items, shabby chic/victorian/antique aesthetic, or steampunk. I like vintage and mixing modern with vintage is cool, but less prefer the 'brown on brown' if that makes any sense.

BUT...quite honestly, anything you put thought, heart and effort into I will love. I love creating and receiving all things handmade.

I'm happily in a relationship with my long time friend/boyfriend & life partner. He takes care of me like no one else has in my entire 38 years of life. We reside with our crazy, beautiful 1 year old Tortie kitty sisters (Stella & Luna). They are my world.

Lately, I have been really into paper crafts such as ATCs, journal making, flip books, and happy mail art.

Sometimes I am all over the place and my craft mood switches up a little. I struggle to find "the one" and what I am truly meant to be spending my time on. Therefore, I have tons of crafty supplies and my craft room is in need of organization.

I discovered Swap bot in July 2020. I used to love trading books and other items on Swaptree.com. I was HOOKED. I love receiving quick notes, letters, and snail mail and I have many interests. I am open minded and looking forward to seeing your items/ creations throughout all cultures and walks of life.

Favorite Crafts

  • Currently working on a journal with beautiful (mostly flat) mail art. I'd love to receive your artwork or decorated envelope/mail art as a piece to treasure forever!

  • Mixed Media

  • Collage

  • ATCs

  • Art Journaling

  • Crochet - been a newbie for several years and love newbie projects 🤣

  • Paper crafts / stationary / snail mail

  • Soap making

  • Miniature crafts / kits

  • Plants & Gardening...we have a wonderful garden and I give ALL the credit to my amazing boyfriend.

  • Sometimes I like to cook and bake :)

Wish List

Please don't send extras unless the swap calls for it or it pertains to my likes/wish list below.

I really appreciate the thoughtfulness but I am currently trying to declutter my messy craft room 😄

  • Handmade envelopes to use for mailing with decorative paper or that have been upcyled/ repurposed with your art or creativity.

  • Postcard pen pals! Send me a PM or if you have my address drop me a line. I love quick notes and to hear about your day, some drama/gripes, a happy moment, etc...from all walks of cultures and life.

  • Your mail art or artwork. I would love to add to my journal. I also LOVE thoughtful, decorated envelopes!

  • Cat Items

  • Miniature things

  • Blank address labels

  • Mini Letter Sets - handmade or store bought (envelope and at least 1 paper)

  • Pipsticks or Stickii Club stickers

  • Abstract art with bright colors

  • Your ATC

  • Your Art... I'd love to see it!

  • Zines

  • Used stamps from all over the world - if already removed from envelope/paper, or if the adhesive easily allows it to be removed.

  • Unused stamps are appreciated as well 🙂

  • Original MTV

  • Thank You USPS/Mail Carrier or Air Mail Stickers/Stamps

  • 80s/90s Vintage Items

  • 80s & 90s memorabilia - Love Rainbow Brite, Jem, Strawberry Shortcake, etc.

  • Comic Strips

  • Interesting Newspaper Articles

~Regarding Kawaii Swaps: I love authentic Kawaii & Kawaii inspired artists, Japanese and Korean stationary, especially cat themed, the teddy bear (Rilakkuma) or that cute little duck (Kamonohashikamo). Love strange & weird and with food incorporated in the theme 🤣 I love mini letter sets!

I don’t usually prefer Kawaii that is easily purchased in the US (Pusheen, American Hello Kitty, etc) or Kawaii with actual humans as the theme.

~Regarding Tea Swaps: Please no plain chai, plain matcha, plain licorice, plain green tea, or plain chamomile tea.

I ask Kindly not to send

Please protect your items when sending. It's really a bummer when someone takes the time to create a lovely swap, and later to find the post office has damaged or scuffed beautiful & usable goodies or artwork. I understand things happen, but please consider this before sending.

Please do not toss small loose items inside the envelope and call it a day 😕

I am RARELY offended, have more likes than dislikes, and totally respect everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and opinions.

That being said, the following are things I do not have a use for:

  • Religious stuff

  • Political stuff

  • Planner stickers or kiddie stickers

  • Please no stickers in general unless they are Stickii Club, Pipsticks, artisan quality, or are inspired by my likes list. (I love stickers but currently have so many to use up)

  • Please no small scraps of paper

I always try to read profiles and try to cater to likes/dislikes.

Favorite Music

  • 90s Alternative, Grunge, Rap, Hip hop & pop (grew up in the 90s 💕☮️💾📟)

  • Modern Rock/Modern Alternative Rock

  • Punk, Ska, Reggae

  • 80s / 80s pop / 80s New Wave / 80’s Hair Bands

  • 60s, 70s & 80s Rock

  • Electronic

Favorite Television

I don’t binge a lot of TV or shows, but from time to time I’ve been hooked on something and usually like to have something playing in the background.

Some of my favorites:

The Office

Handmaids Tale

The Golden Girls

Shameless

Family Guy

F Is For Family

Two and a Half Men

Adult Swim

True Crime

Dry/Dark Humor

Shock Humor

Offensive light-hearted Humor/Sarcasm

Drama

Thrillers

Horror / Cheesy slasher and/or 80s horror

Original MTV / MTV Classic
