I like to write letters. I recently got into fountain pens and am very excited about pens/inks/paper! I used to make mail-art/handmade postcards/ATCs. I dabbled in collage, painting, drawing and crochet, but it has been awhile. Writing has taken over!
My favorite color is orange, but blue and magenta are also nice.
I prefer zany, weird, funny, swear-y, silly things. Have a card you think is too inappropriate to send to somebody? You can send it to me! I like swearing, sarcasm, bad puns and terrible jokes.
Please, if you can, write a message (about whatever you want!) on whatever you send. It really brightens my day!
ALSO: If you have one, I would LOVE a picture of your cat! Please tell me his/her name. I want to start a "Cats of Swap-bot" photo album/glue book! (photos can be printed on regular paper or photo paper--either is fine!) Thanks thanks! And guinea pigs! I would totally be into a Guinea Pigs of Swap-bot album as well! :-D
PLEASE NO BUTTERFLIES!
PLEASE NO DIE-CUTS or scrapbook paper!
PLEASE NO Tiny sheets of paper! (2x3 size eg.)
please don't send these items. They go right in the bin and make me sad.

I STRONGLY DISLIKE BUTTERFLIES!
Please do not send me butterfly anything. (in real life they're fine, but I really really don't like them on paper, and I hesitated even mentioning it, but it became necessary when over the course of a month EVERY SWAP I RECEIVED had a freaking butterfly on it. I had to take a stand!) I love swapbot, but getting butterfly stuff in the mail makes me want to cry..
I will not rate you down if you send me butterfly things, but I might light them on fire.
PLEASE NO BUTTERFLIES! But other insects are fine!
NO SCRAPBOOK PAPER
NO TINY SHEETS of paper, (2x3 size eg.) and
NO LIST PADS.
please don't send these items.
I read people's profiles and try to send them things they'd like.
I rate 5s and hearts. If I really like what you send, I'll write you a comment to thank you. I don't do drama over a missing postcard or something mailed a few days late. I try to rate the day I receive, but sometimes I get swamped. If you're missing a rating please let me know.
I click "sent" when I put the swap in my mailbox and put the flag up. (My mailman is named Jim and he is the sweetest man in the world! He likes to see all the incoming and outgoing fun!)--Update: Jim retired! :-( Now I have a rag-tag bunch of millennial mail carriers who misdeliver everything and lose our packages. I MISS JIM!
