About Me

Hello! I'm a woman living in the US working as a financial accountant by day and a snail mailer at night!

I prefer doing INTERNATIONAL swaps!!! I just think it's interesting to hear different experiences from the other side of the world than what I'm used to here in the US! If you would like a penpal, feel free to message me anytime! I am always looking for penpals worldwide! ;)

I enjoy spending time with my husband and my kids (2 sons and 1 daughter)! My family and I like to spend time with our dog, our puppy is starting to get old (noooo). During my downtime on the weekends, I like to papercraft and journal early in the morning with my coffee. In my journal, I do mostly paper collaging with ephemera, rubber stamping, washi tapes, and journaling cards. My journal entries consist of recipes I want to try, list journaling prompts, art journaling and just my inner thoughts and life in general.

I found swapbot on accident! I did quite a bit of sticker swaps on a Facebook group, and swapbot was briefly mentioned. I was addicted to sending and receiving happy mail, but I wanted more than just receiving stickers. I'm very glad I found this site because I have a tendency to hoard stationery supplies and now it is forcing me to share my stationery goodies!

I used to live in Hawaii and I had access to unlimited Japanese stationery, but I've moved to a different state and I miss it so much.. I LOVE Japanese, Korean and Taiwan stationery!!

I LOVE STICKERS!! I have a stash in a Size 9 Nike shoe box. I'm an avid sticker collector :). I would like to share my sticker collection as well as do some mail art with my rubber stamp and washi tape collection.

MY FAVORITE AESTHETICS/THEMES:

  • cottagecore

  • birds! flamingos, owls, hummingbirds, colorful birds, cardinals, llamas, anything birds!

  • botanical illustrations/floral/mushrooms/sakura, woodland theme (birds/fall/autumn/nature/bees/owl/🍄/fox/gnomes)

  • Valentine’s/XOXO/hearts/retro Valentine

  • under the sea/beach/mermaids/nautical theme

I wanted to stop and say thank you, so much, for the wonderful Ultimate Easter Basket swap you sent to me. I loved the bunny bag and all of the wonderful mermaid and nautical items. Those calligraphy markers are amazing and I'm in love with all the mermaid stickers. That dish towel is pretty extraordinary too!! Thanks for making my Easter more special and for joining the swap! 💜
