Updates & Intro

8/4/2020 from a postal worker local to me :

From my neighbor, Maureen- a dedicated postal worker.

Are you angry about the lack of mail delivery in your neighborhood? Believe me so are we, as president of the letter carriers union I can assure you none of the issues are the fault of your letter carrier. As an example today August 1st 2020 some of our post offices received zero mail for delivery. letter carriers in those stations received parcels for delivery only, this is a problem which is being manufactured from the top of the leadership pyramid.

Recently we received a new postmaster general who is instituting changes, and it is these changes that are driving the non-delivery of mail. Below is a statement from our national office of the Union explaining that we are not in favor nor endorsing any of these new changes that are happening. I have been with the postal service going on 33 years and I have never seen a day like today where zero mail showed up at the post office for delivery. I have lived through severe snow storms, the ice storm of 1991, 2020 pandemic, riots, hurricanes, ect. the list goes on and on and through all these issues and all of these national or local emergencies the mail still went through. With the hiring of a single individual who has never had anything to do with the postal service and has zero postal experience, we are now seeing days where mail does not show up.

I know you the mailing public find this completely unacceptable please understand your letter carrier also finds this completely unacceptable, we ask you to stand with us in support of your postal service contact your congressman let them know you find this unacceptable and demand answers. Calling the postal service to complain will do nothing you need to go further and contact Congress. This is your postal service and once it's gone it will be extremely expensive to send a letter across the country we're not talking cents we're talking dollars. If we sit by and do nothing the postal service we'll be gone and you'll never get it back.

For the first time in 33 years I am worried I am concerned for the future of the mail delivery, the careers of 700,000 employees and for the service that we provide the American public everyday.

8/3/2020- my mail has not got any better sadly. I am not going to join many swaps still. but--- if i owe you a rating or swap i am happy to try to resend.

please let me know if you did not get a swap from me. i have stopped joining bc i have been having so many issues.

I AM HAPPY TO RESEND ANYTHING.

5/14 it would appear that an entire batch of my sent mail got lost. I am resending all swaps that’s are missing. I am sorry I honestly I’m not sure what happened but i It was everything I sent out on the same day that has not made it to anybody yet

I READ ALL MY COMMENTS AND RATINGS. It’s really hard to respond to them all.

If I owe you a rating, please ask! Gonna be late? No problem, just let me know.

Or if for some reason you had to pay postage I’ll repay you

I do appreciate it if you take the time to rate me. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

TLDR:

i love postcards! blank and written on. I love stickers to share. I have an amazon wish list. Swap Ideas below.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I try to read my partners profiles for individual swaps! I don’t always have something that will be specific to you, but I will read your profile bio!

Mail pick up- even if I drop it to the desk- they do not process till after they close. They collect from boxes daily at various times and process that at the end of day too. If it gets dropped off on Saturday it’s probably not moving till Monday. Just want to give you a heads up!

If you some how get a double from me - #or nothing at all- # please let me know ! Communication is key! I’ll replace or resend !

NOTES FOR ANY SWAP

I will accept new (unused not written or stamped) postcards in place of anything listed on the swap choices. Just give me a note too on a slip of paper saying I chose postcards instead of ______.

I really only like postcards, stationary with envelopes, and stickers! I’ve started to like washi samples too! I don’t have any to share yet though!

I’m working on my stash and it’s crazy how hard it’s been finding postcard in Cleveland that don’t cost $2!

I’m gonna have to pay to drive to the rest stops on the turnpike to Buy postcards I hope aren’t crazy expensive! Any direct suppliers you know of, I can order through my company !

If you’d like to do a direct swap for a postcard let me know!

I AM PRIMARILY HERE FOR POSTCARDS

those are my happy mail :D anytime you have a choice- i would prefer a post card ! Landscapes are my favorite. And cats.

Love the postcard surprise!

Feel free to write facts or quotes or draw a picture. A poem a story or just the weather today! Stickers are cool too! I’m a huge fan corny jokes too.

I am happy to send anyone a birthday postcard just ask! I have over 165 people on my 2020 list!

Landscapes are my favorite. A beautiful scene always brings me joy. I also love tourist cards from anywhere !

I LOVE MAKING POSTCARDS TOO. I use 110 lb heavy cover stock and my cameo silhouette machine. I also love printing pictures and glueing them. I am a huge fan of cut n paste postcards too! If i have the time i even try to put my notes with the machine bc it looks so pretty! I use images ive created, as well as fair use images.

I’m in Ohio - home to cedar point and I love roller coasters-

any roller coaster postcard i can get i would love!

Huge fan of cats as well. I have three.

I’m in a few other exchanges but so happy to find swap bot. This is truly something I’ve been searching by for. (postcrossing, postcards united, 50 states exchange, and my birthday exchange and few on Facebook and Reddit)

I really enjoy helping make people smile.

I also buy postcards - my favorite souvenir when I travel! I always only got for myself, but from now on I’ll grab at least 2-3 extra of what I get!

Thanks! For reading

My only dislikes

are strong smells of perfume. I havent had any issues with this, but i figured id write this out for safety sake!

About Me

I am 35, and i live in Cleveland, Ohio. (im about 15 minutes from the city) I am happily married. My husband and I tied the knot on 10/13/18 at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum! IT WAS INCREDIBLE! We have been together since 2009!

Swap wishes :) thanks!

This is only for swaps based on wishes (or profile surprises):

So thank you in advance!

Cool Stickers

I love the sticker postcard swaps. And I always get neat stickers. So anything you would want to get in a swap! I really don’t have a stash.

Stamps

Any denomination ! $.01 - $1.20 ! I’ve had to lay off international swaps as much since it’s getting so pricey!

Any postcards

If they are touristy - I like to get doubles so I can keep one and send one ! Non-touristy I don’t need doubles of but always love them to be able to share as well! (I usually end up keep most Bc I don’t have them haha)

Stationary sets

I used to have a ton, and now those are not as easy to find either haha!

Anything off of my amazon list

The amazon list started for my birthday postcard exchange. And I know some of that stuff on there is pricey - but it also serves as my quick access to buy for myself ! Anything towards an item is awesome too.

Lately I’ve been sending so much I’ve been going through all of my stashes!

If you’ve read all of this, I totally appreciate your time 😬!

Comment: I have reached out a few times since the swap deadline in April and while there was communication there has still been nothing received on my end. I hate to give a low rating but nearly 4 months have gone by at this point. I have also not received a rating even though I have confirmation from USPS and my partner that the package was delivered. I put a lot of thought into what I sent and am very hurt to not have that same courtesy given. I’d be willing to change the rating in the future if we can working something out but for now I have to give a 1 rating I’m sorry. 😢

Comment: Hi Amanda! I did not get the first swap but I just got the second. I know how frustrating it gets with the post office (my crazy story is too long to tell). Don't let them get you down with swapping! Hopefully you get your grove back to get in your happy place with swapping! Thank you though for the cute goodies!
