My name is Evan. I am a girl 🎀. I love things with my name on them!!
If you make my name (just the EVAN part) pretty on my envelope or letter, I will be adding it to a collage I am making of my name.

FACTS ABOUT ME
July 2020 was rough. I lost my sister to AML Leukemia. Upon returning home from her funeral, I was diagnosed with RRMS. It has been a lot for me to process. I have begun being a lot more selective of the swaps I participate in and create. Focusing on RAK and Wishlist type things. Thank you everyone for your understanding and grace.
PLEASE NOTE: I am only on Swap Bot a MAX of ONE hour a day (I literally have my ipad set to disallow me to be on longer) So if I don’t get back to you straightaway that is why. Be patient, I will be back tomorrow.
September 20th, My husband and I are moving into our first home on our own (we have lived with roommates up till now). It’s exciting. But as we have always had room mates, meaning we also do not have a lot of household items of our own. We have a home wishlist above. Anything inspired by things on the wishlist is fine too. It doesn’t even have to be new.
My whole life pretty much revolves around PETER PAN. It’s my main special interest. When I was a little girl I struggled to make friends - I was a bit awkward, autistic, and we moved a lot. The book became my best friend (I have read it well over 150 times to date) and that fondness grew and grew. GOOD RULE OF THUMB: If it makes me (or you for that matter) think of Peter Pan or Neverland it is a winner!
I also have a PETER PAN GROUP now!!!!!! Check it out!! Copy and Paste:
🚫PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME PACKAGES WHERE EVERY SEAM IS TAPED SHUT. THESE ARE VERY DIFFICULT FOR ME TO OPEN AND CAUSE ME PANIC, AS I HAVE BROKE, CUT AND TORE ITEMS INSIDE TRYING TO GET INTO ENVELOPES. I UNDERSTAND IT IS REINFORCEMENT BUT THERE HAS TO BE ANOTHER WAY. (Like - leaving one corner available is super helpful)
🚫ALLERGIES: Walnuts (other nuts are okay)
🚫Anything musty or smoky smelling - it kills my senses and overwhelms me and goes in the garbage.
🚫AUTISM SPEAKS anything - puzzle pieces, blue pieces especially. This organization is not supportive of actually autistic people. I don’t agree with their philosophy, nor do they speak for me. (Advocating moment)
🚫 Propaganda of any kind
I had found Swap Bot on someone’s profile on Postcrossing, and instantly fell in love. The thought of filling my postbox (and others) with Happy Mail was so intriguing. In the beginning I signed up for everything that caught my fancy. When I suddenly found my self overwhelmed with stuff. Being Autistic and a bit of a Minimalist it got to be a bit much. When I tried signing up for swaps to get rid of the stuff, I always forgot I just end up getting stuff in return. I started doing RAKs and Tags, to eliminate the excess. I am now in a comfortable place swap bot wise and stuff wise. I now try to sign up for things I would be happy not only to send, but receive as well. Aside from my group founder responsibilities to keep my group busy, that is.
When I sign up for a swap, I usually have it finished and packaged before the swap is assigned. Except for profile swaps of course. Once it is handed off to either the post box or someone to take it to the post office (as I am blind and getting there is hard) I will mark it “sent”. Once I receive a swap I ALWAYS leave feedback promptly. If I have not left feedback on your swap yet, I have not received it. After I leave feedback I move the swap to “archived”. Because of this I do not know if you have received your swap or not. I don’t chase feedback. So, if you have NOT received something from me that was marked sent, please reach out to me. I am always open for communication.
I am here for fun. This is a leisure activity for me. A get away from the normal monotony of life, so to speak. If I have to stress over dates, ratings and hunting things down it is no longer fun. Then what is the point? I do not take part in drama or gossip. If I am faced with either I will walk away, and most likely block the people involved. This is NOT what I am here for.
My rules of swapping:
Also - I do reuse items that I do not find useful. There is a slight chance you will get something you sent me back in a different swap if we are partnered again.
