Hello! My name is Heidi and I am a 22-year-old college student living in the Lone Star state of Texas! ğ¤ I'll be graduating in December 2021 with my BA.
I live a zero waste / eco minimalist lifestyle. As I ran out of product, I replaced everything with plastic-free, package-free alternatives, or packaging that is compostable if possible. All of my clothing and housewares are secondhand, reducing the demand for more items to be produced. If possible, please reuse some scrap paper for letters or to be upcycled into an envelope- thank you!
I LOVE the color pinkğ, hot air balloons ğ, rainbowsğ, and strawberriesğ! If you send me anything with those on it I will love it!
My mom has breast cancer, and recently finished her chemotherapy and a double mastectomy. She has quite a road ahead of her with another surgery, radiation, and reconstructive surgery. She absolutely loves cardinals (the bird), so if you have any cutouts of cardinals, cardinal stickers, or just want to draw a cardinal and toss it in a swap, I'm putting together a scrapbook of them for her. She also loves Bible verses. Thank you to the people who have sent extras in their swaps with me for her, I appreciate it more than you can know!
If you're sending a postcard, I tend to like these themes! (Size 4"x6" and 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)...
If you could send a touristy postcard from the place that you live, those are my absolute favorites! I also love....
âªï¸Chapels / churches / monasteries (photos, paintings, drawings, all types)
ğRainbows or rainbow colored things
ğ¸Flowers (any kind)
ğHot air balloons
For postage stamps, my current goal is to have one from every country, but if you want ideas for themes I like: (used/mint, on/off paper, any country)
ğFruits and vegetables
ğHot air balloons

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 â¤ï¸
My bunny's name is Dumbledore or Dumby for short. He is 8 years old and such a spunky little guy, he loves parsley and being rubbed on the nose! 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!
