About Me 👩🏼

The address on my profile is still current. I will change it on July 15

Hello! My name is Heidi and I live in the Lone Star state of Texas! 🤠I graduated on December 11 with a BA in communications and a minor in consumer experience management. I love hamsters, and recently welcomed a new hamster into my life named Frank in February :)

I live a zero waste / eco minimalist lifestyle. If possible, please reuse some scrap paper for letters or to be upcycled into an envelope- thank you!

I have no tea dislikes besides licorice

Swapping With Me ✉️

I always send my swaps out either by the due date or right after partners are assigned! If you live in the US, please let me know if you haven't received my swap 2 weeks after the deadline. If you are international, feel free to send me a message if it's been a while and you haven't received anything. I know with the pandemic there's a lot going on with the postal service in everyone's countries! :)

Feel free to send me a message if you're a newbie and would like to do a private swap with me, I know it can be hard to get ratings under your belt when you first join.

Wishlist ✨

Just a few special things I've been looking for!

  • "Please deliver to" labels for writing addresses
  • Any magazine cutouts / magazine pages
  • Strawberry, blueberry, or orange flavored teas
  • Blank postcards
  • Paw Patrol, Winnie the Pooh, or Frozen stickers / stationery / postcards. I have a 3-year-old niece (Alivia) who jumps for joy when Aunt Heidi sends her fun-looking mail :)

🚫Please avoid sending...

Anything witchy (besides Harry Potter) / pagan / wiccan, as I am a Christian and just not into those things. I am okay with confetti as long as it isn't teeny tiny, but please do not send me loose glitter as my pet rabbit could get into it.

Other than that, I'm not picky at all! Send me whatever makes you smile, it'll probably make me smile, too!

Comment: Heidi, thank you for the beautiful Magnolia pc. I have to remember to add this flower (does it count if it's on a tree?) to my list of favorite flowers! We had 3 of the same "A" actresses! I love how we all had Audrey Hepburn ❤ Thank you! I have friends heading from Florida to Texas in about 10 days. They started in Vermont! Keep cool, and have a fabulous summer 😎

Comment: Hi Heidi! I love how you wrote my name in the address, it's so pretty! And the scratch & sniff sticker is a nice touch, I haven't used one of those in years, haha! I really like the selection you sent. They're all such a nice quality and I can't wait to use them to spread some joy swapping! Thanks again Heidi! <3

Comment: Hey Heidi ! Thanks very much, for the Bug PC! I also sent my partner a bug PC. Why not, fits the category. 😀 Like you, I don't Wasp, Cockroaches, Fruit flies, Mosquitos, and June bugs either. We have all of the above here as well. My list would go on though of bugs I can't stand. Especially those dang Gnats, Stink bugs, Bore bees, Hornets, Yellow jackets ( I'm allergic to Bees ). Take care and I hope you have a great Summer!

Comment: Thank you for the interesting PC. I can’t believe it made it to me without a stamp, especially after it was forwarded to my new address! Lol
Response: This is the second PC I've accidentally sent without a stamp that's made it to the recipient! The USPS must be tired of me at this point, LOL
