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!

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

~Abstract with bright colors

~Retro 80โ€™s & 90โ€™s

~Modern Bohemian

~Kawaii/Cute

~Mid Century Modern or

~Pop Art themed.

Quite honestly, anything you put thought, heart and effort into I will love. I adore 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 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 ๐Ÿคฃ

  • 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 :)

  • Ephemera to use as subject or focal point for ATCs or backgrounds to use for ATCs

  • Would love a few 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

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

  • Mixed Media/Collage pieces/magazine cut outs

  • Abstract art with bright colors

  • Magazine pages or clippings from Project Calm Magazine, Flow, Origin, Daphne's Diary or Art Journaling Magazine

  • 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Original MTV

  • Happy Mail', 'Thank You USPS/Mail Carrier', 'Air Mail', or 'Non Machinable' stickers

  • 80s/90s Vintage Items

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

  • Comic Strips

  • Interesting Newspaper Articles

  • Old Postcards People Actually Wrote and Sent

~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 ๐Ÿคฃ I ADORE mini letter sets!!

I donโ€™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 chai, plain matcha, 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 double check your stuff.

I am RARELY offended, 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

  • Blank postcards, not sent as a note (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!

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

  • Punk, Ska, Reggae

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

  • 60s, 70s & 80s Rock

  • Electronic

Favorite Television

Some of my favorites:

The Office

F Is For Family

Hello,

I want to express my deepest appreciation for the WONDERFUL package of Lace you put together for me and honored a wish I shared with the Group. They are all beautiful laces and every one of them will be used as I sign-up for swaps in the future.

Thank You again and I hope we cross paths often so we can get to know each other. I hope you are a Happy Swapper? I hope you're having many positive experiences. I will be watching for you as I continue to be active in Swap-bot. Until we meet again, Happy Swapping!

Thank you for granting my Wonderful Wishes for September, Beth! Exactly what I wanted: circle punches and post-its! I should just bite the bullet and get a pack of post-its....but there are so many other funner things to shop for, lol! ๐Ÿ˜… Also, love the little triangle pattern baggie you packed them in - that's going to become some collage fodder for sure.

kiddomerriweather on Sep 8, 2021:

Thank you for the Halloween stickers you sent for my September WW! I can't believe that Halloween is just next month!!!
