About Me


From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU to everyone who sent mom a Christmas card!!! She was so tickled pink and it really, really brightened her season (and our mailbox!). You're angels!!!!!




ABOUT MY PEN PALS: I'm far behind on pen pal replies, but that doesn't mean I'm not thinking of all of you. It may take me a while to respond to your letters but that also doesn't mean you won't receive mail from me! Expect a card or postcard from me from time to time. ;u;

I appreciate each and every one of you and treasure your friendship! I hope to get caught up with replies eventually LOL.

ABOUT HEARTS: Karen07 worded it perfectly: "I don't scrutinize postmarks or fret over small failures to "meet swap requirements". The heart thing irritates me a bit because I do rather assume that whatever was sent to me was done with pleasing me in mind and of course it's heart worthy for that reason alone. I think a heart is like saying thanks a lot as opposed to just thanks."

I've created an Instagram specifically for posting pictures of outgoing swaps! If you don't want to see potential spoilers, please do not visit! Otherwise, feel free to browse and give me a follow! It's linked in my Linktree!


UPDATED NOTE ABOUT MY PO (and USPS in general) 7/26/2022: I just received a swap today that was mailed from Canada on 6/18/2022- almost a month and a half later! I'm not sure why or how this happened. This is why communication is so important- I will never rate down without trying to reach out to you first, and I hope I'm given the same benefit.

ANOTHER UPDATE 8/8/2022: I just received a postcard today from Texas that was postmarked 7/7/2022. What the heck! I can't believe it took over a month for a postcard- there was no reason for it to be so delayed. I don't even know anymore.

Note about my post office: we no longer have a consistent mail carrier and haven't for quite some time now. (Update 7/26: Our current mail carrier sucks wind lmao. Another update 11/21: The original mail carrier no long works our route and we have another one AGAIN! Ugh!) With that being said, postmarks are often inaccurate and wrong when you receive mail from me. Please please PLEASE do not compare the date I mark my swap as "sent" to the postmark, as they will almost always be different and will not match... I mark my swap as "sent" the day it's put in my mailbox. Also, on rare occasions, our mail gets delivered to the wrong address or delivered late. I always give the benefit of the doubt and will never rate low if I haven't received your swap, and I'll reach out to talk to you before doing any kind of low rating. :-)


I've taken inspiration from YouTuber Inkie Quill to create Happy Mail Binders! (Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foHMmTSLWjE) Mail I receive goes into these binders! I'm way behind on them unfortunately, but I will be updating them slowly! I will be making a binder just for this year. :-D If anyone is interested to see pictures, let me know!

I also collect postcards I receive in the mail! Any that don't fit in my PC binder goes in my happy mail binder. I love any PC I receive because it's sent with love and with me in mind! ;u;


I'm rejoining Swap-Bot after almost a year of not participating in any swaps, so I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of things! I am a full-time RN working night shift, so my schedule is a bit crazy, so please bare with me as far as rating swaps goes. If you are a pen pal of mine, please be patient with me- I promise I will reply, it just takes me time! Also, I apologize in advance if I forget to put my SB moniker in/on my mail lol.


My name is Katie, and I'm 29 years old. I usually go by she/her pronouns but I don't care what you refer to me as, as long as you're comfortable! I've been swapping on-and-off for several years now and I really enjoy receiving mail, but I love sending it even more! Life can be dull, boring, and sad sometimes... but some happy mail can brighten up our lives!

As far as pets go, we have a Yorkie (Bandit), a nanday conure (Gibbs), a dwarf hamster (Cappy), and a tuxedo cat (Hector- ask me how she got her name). They're all equal part crazy, part awesome. I think they fit right into our family. :-P

Comment: Thanks for the great card and the extras! I so liked everything! I don't have any plans as of yet. I don't have a BF at the moment, so I will be spending the day alone, and I am ok with that. I hope you have a fabulous day and Thanks once again! Happy swapping.... Hugs, Brenda

Comment: I love the cute cat/strawberry tiny paper. My cat Eris is definitely a "jewel cat," too. She's a Mewish Princess. (My boy cat, Kaidun Aroo, is a Doctor. He has a Purr-HD. Oh my god, I'm a stereotype.) After all these beautiful stickers I keep getting, it looks like I need to start shopping at Stickii Club! <3

Epiphany - 12 days of Christmas Swap.
You spoiled me with such wonderful items. Thank you so very much for everything. Notecards, essential oils, Gnome notebook, Celtic music, squirrel stickers, Earrings, life is good car plate, pooh bear stickers, wax-tart a box of 12 assorted ones, air fryer cookbook, a fairies sign and a cardinal footsteps plague and I just cried over. This was so very special to me and I wanted to let you know I thoroughly enjoyed opening everything. I could feel you choose things just for me. This was really one of the best swaps ever. Thank you.
