Hello! My name is Heidi and I am a 21-year-old college student living in the Lone Star state of Texas! 🤠 I am majoring in communications with a minor in consumer experience management, I really hope to work in the digital retailing or advertising industry once I graduate with my BA in Dec 2021 🛍
I love snail mail- sending letters and things in the mail really is something I wish more people my age thought was cool! Wax seals are something I really enjoy doing and receiving, they're so pretty. I play violin, piano, guitar, and ukulele. Someday I hope to learn how to play the harp!
I LOVE the color pink💖, hot air balloons 🎈, rainbows🌈, and strawberries🍓! If you send me anything with those on it I will love it!
I LOVE STICKERS!! Any kind! Glittery, partially used sheets, flake stickers, puffy stickers, ALL of them! And POSTAGE STAMPS!! My stamp collection could always use just one more stamp.
I have so much washi, I love it! My favorite washi is scented, pink, floral, vivid colors, mail themed, fruits, and sparkly / glitter!
For postcards, I collect these themes (I prefer PCs being sent naked unless the swap says otherwise! Written on and no envelope, I think a blank postcard is a sad one)...
⛪️Chapels / churches / monasteries (photos, paintings, drawings, all types)
🌈Rainbows or rainbow colored things
🌸Flowers (any kind)
🎈Hot air balloons
For postage stamps, I collect these themes (used/mint, on/off paper, any country)
🍏Fruits and vegetables
🎈Hot air balloons

I love to do arts and crafts. My mom taught me how to make things from a young age and I still love handmade projects. I think it's very important to be able to do things with both your head and your hands.
I would say that I like papercrafting the most. I love to make handmade cards, notecards, and postcards. Recently I've gotten into upcycling envelopes from other papers. Decorating envelopes is also something that I really enjoy, so most of the envelopes I send have lots of detail on them! Wax seals are always welcome.
I have two little hamsters and a pet rabbit. My hamsters are:
-Charmin (short-haired female Syrian)
-Miss Strawberry (dwarf mutt, probably a Campbell's dwarf)
I have had 9 hamsters since 2016, and I love them! They all have their own personalities and likes / dislikes, just like any other pet. Such sweet little buddies!
Update 3/6/21: My hamster, Muffin Man, passed away peacefully today. He was very old and got more than his fair share of a healthy and happy life as a hamster, but I still miss him ❤️
My bunny's name is Dumbledore or Dumby for short. He is 7 years old and such a spunky little guy, he loves parsley and being rubbed on the nose! He'll be 8 years old on April 18, 2021. He is a tortoiseshell Holland Lop.
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.
Just a few special things I've been looking for!
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 and hamsters 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!
