About Me

Happy 2024!

Update 1/16/24 As a snail mail loving Mom this feels like my moment to connect my hobby to my tween! Please help a mom out! If you have raised kiddos you know where I’m at! From her school my kids name is: Zoe C. Thank you!

❤️ SMS Announces Hearts Across the World Project ❤️ Our seventh grade Social Studies classes need your help! In the spirit of global citizenship, seventh grade classes will be participating in the Hearts Across the World project and could use your assistance. Their goal is to receive a Valentine card from each of the fifty states and as many countries as possible. A map of the United States and the world is displayed in the seventh grade hallway. When our students receive a Valentine, they will place a heart sticker on the map, indicating the state or country from which it is sent. Our students are particularly interested in cards from outside CT, and receiving cards from overseas would be even better! If you have a family member or friend who could send a Valentine from around the country or world, our students would greatly appreciate it! Please use the following mailing address: Seymour Middle School Attn: 7th Grade Social Studies Classes 211 Mountain Road Seymour, CT 06483

I still enjoy this site just as much as I did when I signed up in the beginning. I really read every partners profile and try to make them have a happy mail day. In case you have been my partner and I haven't thanked you enough please trust when I say I am so grateful! So many of you make this community a little pocket of happiness. Truly thank you so much for all the mail love 🧡

*Finally updated my wishlist have a look you may be inspired. 😉

I joined swap-bot January 2006! Over 17 years now oh my! So cool! My longest commitment yet 😆

My daughter Zoe Autumn was born September 2011, it was the most beautiful experience of my life, a lot of hard work, labor is NO JOKE, but it went quickly, therefore, I was able to go all natural! I'm madly in love!

My heart is full again, Hazel May was born in the Spring 2014...watching these girls grow and learn is nothing short of a miracle...

Please welcome my 3rd baby girl to the world born 8/10/15 little miss Parker Joy is here!

I see myself as someone who is quirky, silly, smart, sassy, nurturing, considerate, opinionated,and open-minded... I definitely beat to the sound of my own drum...

I have always had an odd obsession with the mail... It's true...I really, really like the mail, getting lovely postcards to packages gives me something to look forward to everyday! I love connecting intimately, yet anonymously...

I am always trying something new...I'm a DIY kinda gal, i compost, i reuse...i mow my own lawn... i secretly want to be a burlesque dancer... I try to live, laugh and love everyday! I'm known to dance in my car like it's my stage!

*holiday items (all year)

*POSTCARDS (following are all my favorite themes)! new and un-used would be great, I'm into postcrossing, and mailart, so I will always find a use for them. Generally, I prefer non touristy postcards, random things to places, and love them sent naked. I don't mind ad/free cards as long as it has something to do with one of my likes:

Comment: Thanks for the letter and amazing goodies! Habits are a funny thing for me -- I've always thought "habit" means "it feels wrong if you don't do the thing, and the urge to get rid of that wrong feeling outweighs your laziness and/or dislike/resentment of the chore." But I just recently found out that, for most people, it's like a more complex form of muscle memory?? I don't understand how that works!
