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, blingy or steampunk themed. I like mixing modern with a little vintage, 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 🤣

  • Soap making

  • Miniature crafts / kits

Wish List/Things I Love

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 😄

Current wish list as of June 2022:

  • Pretty or interesting buttons

  • Mailable sized handmade or store-bought envelopes with decorative paper, or upcyled/ repurposed with your art or creativity. Gelli printed, hand painted, etc. is more than welcomed! Please let me see your art!

  • 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-themed Items

  • Miniature things

  • Blank address labels/PDT Labels

  • Mini Letter Sets - handmade or store bought

  • Pipsticks or Stickii Club stickers

  • Abstract art with bright colors 😍 * LOVE (instant ❤️)*

  • 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

  • Old School video game themes: ie...Vintage Nintendo, Sega, Atari or Arcade themed items.

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

  • 80s/90s Vintage Items

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

  • Interesting Newspaper Articles

~Regarding Kawaii: 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 and/or weird and with food incorporated in the theme.

Less prefer Kawaii that is easily purchased in the US or from Michael's/JoAnn's/chain craft stores or Kawaii with actual humans as the theme.

~Regarding Tea: Please no plain chai, plain matcha, plain licorice or anise, 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.

  • I feel like I shouldn't have to say this, but please do not send dirty items. As much as I love to recycle or pass items along for future swaps, I will toss dirty items straight in the trash for sanitary reasons.

  • 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

From time to time I get hooked on a show, and usually like to have something playing in the background.

I especially enjoy dry/dark comedy, drama comedy, animated series (adult cartoons) and of course some true crime, drama and 80s and 90s classics.

Some of my favorites:

The Office

Adventure Time

Ozark

Handmaids Tale

The Golden Girls

Shameless

Family Guy

F Is For Family

Two and a Half Men

Lots of Adult Swim

Thrillers

Horror / Cheesy slasher and/or 80s horror

Original MTV / MTV Classic

Comment: Thank you for this fun swap with cheerful mail art kitties and wonderful cat goodies. I share your love of cats. I've almost always had cats, starting out with barn cats as a child on the farm and now a spoiled indoor cat in the city.

Comment: Thank you for the package of cute! It is filled with so many fun, adorable and happy things! Thank you for including a bday card as well. I had actually bought some stickers from RebeccaJanes and I lost them in my CLEAN room. LOL! If it was messy, I'd know exactly where they are. So I am thrilled to get more. (Honestly these days, I'm digging "kawaii" by independent artists, than the authentic Japanese kind). Thank you for putting a smile on my face!

Thank you for the Cpg June wish for ephemera! I can't wait to play with the goodies!

phillaine on Jun 13, 2022:

Hi Beth :) Thanks for your sweet message on my profile. I just found out that postage rates are going up on July 10th, so additional ounce rate will be 24 cents, but since the regular letter rate is going up to 60 cents, I guess you can just use 3 of the 20s for that ;) Have a good week!

Thank you for the LSRUS June wish. These teas sound yummy!
