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
~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.
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!
Crochet - been a newbie for several years and love newbie projects 🤣
Miniature crafts / kits
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!
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 Art... I'd love to see it!
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 🙂
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.
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:
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.
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
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 Golden Girls
F Is For Family
Two and a Half Men
Lots of Adult Swim
Horror / Cheesy slasher and/or 80s horror
Original MTV / MTV Classic
