About Me

First, please let me know by PM 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!

I Pledge to Rate

I really appreciate if you RATE ME as well when you receive your items. It only takes a minute of your time ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello, my name is Beth and I am a swapaholic.

My general style / aesthetic / things my eyes love:

Kawaii/Cute

Retro 80โ€™s & 90โ€™s

Abstract Modern

Mid Century Modern or

Pop Art themed.

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 37 years of life. We reside with my 15 yo baby girl kitty cat. They are my world.

UPDATE 11/20/20: I lost my sweet girl Camielle, and although it gets a tiny bit easier every day, she will always be my first love. You never forget and will always miss your best friend and first love. She was my sidekick for almost 16 years ๐Ÿˆ ๐Ÿ’” ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”

I love arts & crafts but I am not super artistically talented. When I'm really into a craft I will pour my heart and soul and tend to be OCD about it. Lately, I have been really into paper crafts such as ATCs, journal making, penpal/snail mail and happy mail art. I want to get more into collage/mixed media too. I am currently trying to find my true passion. 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.

Snail mail is A LOST art. It is so much more personal than a text or social media post.

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 throughout all cultures and walks of life.

Favorite Crafts

  • Soap making (tiny business & hobby)

  • Miniature crafts / kits / paper crafts

  • Mixed Media Collage art (newbie)

  • Art Journaling (newbie)

  • Crochet - been a newbie for several years ๐Ÿคฃ

  • Paper crafts / stationary / snail mail

  • Plants & Gardening (dabble just a bit here & there)

Favorite Music

  • 90s Alternative, Grunge, Rap, Hip hop & pop (grew up in the 90s ๐Ÿ’•โ˜ฎ๏ธ๐Ÿ’พ๐Ÿ“Ÿ)

  • Modern Rock/Modern Alternative Rock

  • 80s / 80s pop / 80s New Wave / 80โ€™s Hair Bands

  • 60s, 70s & 80s Rock

  • Electronic

Favorite Television

The Office, The Golden Girls, Family Guy, Two and a Half Men, Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, Adult Swim, True Crime, Unsolved Mysteries, Dry/Dark Humor, Shock Humor, Offensive light-hearted Humor/Sarcasm, Drama, Thrillers, Horror, Cheesy slasher and/or 80s horror, Original MTV / MTV Classic

Things I Love/Wishlist

Generally my tastes are themed around colorful, abstract, kawaii/cute, 80's/90's retro themed.

  • Kawaii washi tape or cat themed washi

  • Regarding Kawaii Swaps: I love authentic Kawaii & Kawaii inspired artists, 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 or if it has grammatical errors ๐Ÿคฃ Don't prefer Kawaii that is easily purchased in the US (Pusheen, American Hello Kitty, etc) or Kawaii with actual humans as the theme.

  • Miniature things

  • Blank address labels

  • Cool, colorful, pretty or interesting looking buttons or charms

  • Mixed Media/Collage

  • Abstract art with bright colors

  • Magazine pages or clippings from Project Calm, Daphne's Diary or ArtJournaling Magazine I haven't seen Project Calm in the US since March 2020, not sure if it's due to covid or if they just stopped producing :(

  • Your ATC

  • 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Original MTV

  • Weird / Out of the Ordinary things (especially Horror or Halloween-themed)

  • Gifts to use for mail art, swaps and happy mail are always appreciated

  • 80s/90s Vintage Magazine cut outs

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

  • Comic Strips

  • Interesting Newspaper Articles

  • Old Postcards People Actually Wrote and Sent

  • Your Art... I'd love to see it!

  • Dad Jokes/ Light-hearted Sarcasm/Offensive Stuff/ Shock Humor/ Satire

  • Cat items

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

I ask Kindly to Not Send

Please send something youโ€™d like to receive as I always try to do the same.

I ask to 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 in the envelope. I understand things happen, but please double check your stuff. Do not send bent, scuffed, ripped, broken, items with hair, etc. I will do the same ๐Ÿ™‚

I am RARELY offended by much, have more likes than dislikes, and totally understand and respect that 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

  • Postcards (unless the swap calls for them or they refer to my likes list) I like post cards, but currently I have SO many :)

I will read your profile and try to cater to your likes and dislikes.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read about me! Happy swapping!
