About Me

Update: On Aug 16th I suddenly could not move my right thumb or wrist without severe pain. At first, I could do absolutely nothing by myself. After being given a brace at the hospital, I’m figuring out how to slowly get things done (like an Injured hand would ever stop me). The biggest thing I haven’t been able to improve on is writing. Trust me, you do not want to see the status of my left-handed writing although I am getting good at left-handed paper cutting. Anyways, for the time being ( hopefully very short!), my notes will have to be typed or written by proxy. I hope this is not a problem for anyone!

Hi, my name is Shelby. Im 24 years old. I LOVE art and anything creative. I can disappear into my attic art room and not emerge for days. Paper crafts and all things snail mail related is my obsession. Although, organizing and collecting more supplies is a close second.

Im a huge coffee fan and will end up drinking 3 or 4 large cups a day at least. I'm also very excited to start drinking and collecting tea because I have always loved the concept but only started liking the taste recently. I'm trying to build a collection so I'd love to receive any type! I guess I tend to like sweeter things :). I love receiving Clipper teas! I also Love receiving teas from other countries!

I love to travel. I’ve been to Nicaragua, Costa Rica, BVI, Puerto Rico, England, France, Poland, Hungary, Italy, Czech, and Germany. I still have so many places I want to go! It’s an adrenaline rush.

I'm dyslexic and apologize for any spelling mistakes I'm usually pretty good with catching them but just in case I apologize ahead of time.

Favorite Crafts

As I said before I absolutely love crafting. I've been collecting crafting supplies for 10+ years and am ecstatic to have an outlet that can use so much of my supplies! I finally have some amazing crafts to use my 100+ rolls of washi tape on!

Some supplies I love to receive and add to my collections are:

  • I’ve been loving anything Happy Mail or snail Mail themed. Happy mail stickers, anything about sending letters, mailman, ect.

  • Anything Bright or Neon (Hot Pink, Neon Yellow, ect.)

  • I’ve been obsessed with fairytale themed items lately! This means things like Fairy, Princess, Alice in Wonderland, Little red Riding hood, ect!

  • I’m currently working on a Peter Pan Junk Journal! So anything you have that could contribute to this is greatly appreciated!

  • I’m also working on a Jane Austen journal!

  • Journaling and Scrapbook Stickers

  • Cute paper clips, binder clips, clothes pins, and bulldog clips

  • Wax seals (if anyone would ever like to swap message me!)

  • Vintage Ephemera!

  • Lace.

  • Used or unused postage stamps

  • Playing Cards

  • Blank Notecards

  • Decorative Baggies

  • Not solid colored mini envelopes!

  • Vintage Postcards

  • Recipe Cards

  • Patterned Envelopes

  • Ephemera

  • Letter Sets

  • Girl Stickers

  • Labels

  • I absolutely love receiving address labels so helpful!

  • Bookmarks!

Im not very picky so I'm happy with anything but a few things I do tend to dislike are; Orange, Reward stickers, and political items. I also am not a fan of cards with sentiments on the inside. I prefer blank.

Favorite Television

Im a tv show addict. I have seen hundreds and if I really enjoy the show I’ll re watch it over and over again while crafting. Some of the shows Ive loved in the past are:

  • Supernatural

  • The Walking Dead

  • Kdramas

  • Doctor Who

  • Izombie

  • Anime (demon slayer, fairytale, attack on titan, ourans host club, haikuu!, and a lot of others!)

  • Once Upon a Time

  • The Magicians ( current obsession)

  • Outerbanks

  • Game of Thrones

  • I am also a fan of Studio Ghibli

Other Passions

Some themes I love are:

  • Vintage ephemera (envelopes, old letters, vintage postcards, vintage cards, library cards)

  • pastel nursery style vintage ephemera

  • Fairies

  • Alice in Wonderland

  • Peter Pan ( currently working on a junk journal so, greatly appreciated!)

  • Jane Austen

  • Winnie the Pooh

  • Beatrix Potter

  • Coffee

  • Pastel! (Especially pastel fairytale)

  • Moon

  • Holiday unused postcards

  • Tea themed items

A few more of my passions are: Chinese food, Kpop (BTS, Got7) , Classic Rock, 21 pilots, Ya book series, Traveling, Bullet Journalling, and Writing.


I Love to collect postcards! I collect all sorts and am fine with whatever you would like to send. I love and prefer collecting blank Postcards unstamped in envelopes but also love reading postcard with messages!

Postcard wishlist: Deer, Elephant, holiday, Coffee, postcards from movies, tv shows, anime, specific books.

Kawaii Wishlist

For kawaii swaps, Im not too picky and will like anything I receive. The type I love to receive are stationary sets, mini stationary sets, sticker flakes, washi tape, and mini paper envelopes or ziplock Baggies. My favorite brands to collect are Sanrio and San-x. My favorite characters are tarepanda, sentimental circus, and tuxedo Sam. If anyone happens to have the rilakkuma or sentimental circus collection with fairytales such as Alice in wonderland, little red riding hood, or Cinderella. My #1 favorite that I’m always on the search for is sentimental circus sailor!



2023: Unfortunately, I have a few medical issues that have led to a couple hospital stays and physically not being able to access my supplies or mailbox. I am very regretful that this has ever happened. During these periods I do still try to get as much done as I can. Usually, however, the only thing I can do is have friends or family members mail swaps for me. I promise i would never forget to complete a swap. Nor would I ever flake. When I sign up for a swap I absolutely will send and keep sending until a mail from me is received.

I am accepting of my rating. While I very much hope that some of the bad ratings will be able to be rectified, I know that most were in fact late and there is nothing I can do to change that. I am glad I am still able to join and have fun in swaps regardless. I believe the fact that my rating is 4.98 despite such ratings goes to show that I am in fact a dedicated swapper.

2019: I absolutely love swapping and did so vigorously for many months. Unfortunately, completely out of the blue my mental and physical health took a decline in March 2019. I was so unprepared- I had half finished swaps and recently purchased supplies for st patricks day themed mail! Unfortunately, treatment and my health lead to me dropping out of school and not being able to continue any of my normal activities- including swap-bot. I'm thankful to be back and be able to swap again and am so thankful to the people who helped make it possible to return to swapping!


I love swapping and believe it should be fun and not stressful. I am of the opinion that mail issues nor personal issues ( health, family, ect) should be held against someone. Especially when people often work very hard to have a good rating. Life happens and we shouldn’t hold that against people. This is supposed to be enjoyable and because we want to share art and supplies. Not so that we can get a report card. I, personally, hardly ever rate down and give swaps ample time to arrive before messaging my partner. I do not care how long it takes for a mail to reach me. So, take your time if need be.

I have seen profiles lately that consist of people’s shopping lists rather than anything craft, supplies or mail related. Im not here to pay for your household essentials or textbooks. It frustrates me to see profiles that only want money, gift cards or for me to pay for random things they need that aren’t related to any type of swap hosted. Having to send such items just to get a good rating is unfair.
