As of May 30
I'll be taking a break for the summer after I send out the swaps I'm signed up for (after June 5). Mail delivery times are driving me crazy and the mail service in my area isn't the best. I will follow through with swaps or ratings I'm waiting on but won't be actively swapping. I might take the time to do more Postcrossing instead, since I'll be traveling a lot this summer.

My Swapping Approach
I rate when I receive and avoid waiting until the last few days to send. Please message me if there are any problems on your or my end (postage due, late sends, damaged mail, possibly lost mail, etc.). I angel all swaps I host. I don't rate based on extras and don't need any!

Private Swaps
I’m usually open to private swaps for anything from exchanging recipes, mail art, snacks, to even makeup/skincare. It doesn't have to be a 1:1 trade! I do ATCs, postcards, and decorated envelopes/mail goodies.

About Me
I love food, reading, and traveling, including road trips. My guilty pleasures include tasting menus and kooky tourist traps like the Biggest Ball of Twine (still on my list!). If you don't know what to write in a swap, tell me something about your local area or recommend me something to see, eat, or do! :)

General Likes

I can always use unused postage. I’m building a frankendeck so any playing cards are much appreciated, especially if they’re in a theme I like!

Cards I need:
Spades: 1, 7, 8, 9, K
Hearts: 1, 2, 4, 8, 10, Q, K
Clubs: 2, 4, 5, 7, 10, K
Diamonds: all except 3, 6, J, K

⋆ assorted things I like: architecture and good design, aerogrammes/postalettes, blackout poetry, cats, calligraphy, cherry blossoms, diecuts, the Golden Gate Bridge, fairytales, fountain pens, Flow magazine, geocaching, FriXion pens, handmade/unique papers, hand-carving, hot air balloons, illustrations, ink or gel pens, Japan, landscapes, lighthouses, mail art, mountains, mythology (any culture), national parks, outer space, pin-ups, Pokemon (favorites: food, cat, cute, pretty plant-types, fluffy, Ditto as other Pokemon), postage stamps, sharks, shiba inu, themes (I'll like almost anything if it's a whole theme!), typewriters, trains, Japanese/Taiwanese washi, wax seals, watercolor, long staircases, vocaloids, zentangles, fashion/couture/streetwear

⋆ I like puns, sarcasm, satire, parody, and sometimes dirty humor.

Package Swap Likes

These are just things I know I like. I love trying new things and supporting small businesses and local brands.

⋆ eat and drink: aerated chocolate, single origin chocolate, cookies and cream flavor, chips/crisps, crackers, sour candies, spicy foods, tea (loose leaf preferred), regional snacks, instant noodles; generally salty snacks more than sweet candies

⋆ makeup/skincare: I prefer mini/trial sizes. I like full sizes for sunscreen or Korean skincare brands like cosrx or banila. I use nail polish, colorful/unique eyeshadows, scar-removal products, makeup removers, and skincare products.

⋆ random useful things: double-sided tape, command hooks, books on my very long to-read list or related to my likes

Postcard Info

⋆ If I'm in a swap for naked postcards, I'd love a tourist postcard from your area with a long message! I prefer tourist PCs written and stamped from place of origin (postcards sent on vacation are my favorite).

⋆ Otherwise, I prefer 4" x 6" unwritten/blank postcards sent in an envelope. I like: gotochi, neat postmarks and stamps (on the outside of the envelope), illustrated cards, vintage travel poster, maxi cards
⋆ Specific postcard wishlists/favorites: one and two


⋆ religious sentiments (inspirational quotes welcome, just not faith-based quotes)
⋆ loose sticky notes/page flags
⋆ dystopian novels with romance in them

hellojett rated for IFM: Scrap Envelope-April 2023 on May 24, 2023
Comment: Thanks for your scrap envelope, I am quite sure most of it survived through the mail and that surprises me everytime! Thanks also for the extra papers that I'll use in collage projects, and the stickers too! :)
craftymommaliz rated for Blackout Poetry USA only #1 on May 23, 2023
Comment: Thank you again for the postcard and resending when I know it took time to make both. I really appreciate your craftiness.
mdrogge rated for Pokemon ATC Series #3 - Grass Type on May 17, 2023
Comment: Your Petalil is so cute!!
Comment: Thanks for hosting this, I love all the decorated envie swaps. Thanks for the goodies especially the vintage paper. I used to go to estate sales but haven't been to one in a few years. I need to start doing that again this summer. Happy swapping!
Comment: Great inchies, beautifully made -- thank you so much! And I like the little display case you made for them. In future, you might want to add your name and date to the back of the inchie -- that way if the recipient chooses to remove them from their case, you still have the artist's info on the back, a bit like an ATC. But I really like them, thank you for making them for me. And yes, Isabella Bird is great! I'm fascinated that someone's done a manga version.
Response: I'm glad you like them. Thanks for letting me know. Somehow that totally slipped my mind!

Thanks for the wishes for WW March! The flower stickers are so pretty - I agree! Love the little animals ones too! I hope your cats are doing well now - were they upset you were away maybe? awww : ( Ohhh your trip sounds great! I would love to go to Taiwan. We are going back to Japan again in November. It was great to get back last fall! It is so fun planning between trips - makes me daydream of stationery a lot, ha ha ha! (although I buy so much it keeps me looking like a small store!) February was more Spring-y -- it snowed yesterday and today, boo! Hope you have a nice Sunday! xoxo

Thank you for the hilarious, sticker covered envie that was inappropriate for wonderful wishes February. I love the story about the family Christmas party and I have to say your doodle is amazing. I absolutely love the cat in a cowboy hat flying over the water.

Thank you for the wishes for WW February! Love all the pink (esp. cherry blossoms!) and Snoopy card. It is fun finding out what people do for work. Your job sounds interesting - I like the learning aspect of it a lot. Somehow our February has been really nice...it's strange!! But I will take it! ha ha! Thanks again for thinking of me! xoxo Happy Valentine's Day!
