About Me

Housekeeping:

All my swaps have been sent by the deadlines and everything I have received has been rated. Yet I still have 25!!! swaps that have either not been received or rated that are more than 3 weeks overdue. I don't mind resending, but I really dislike having to chase ratings - if you didn't get it, let me know so I can resend, if you did, please rate. As for the ones I am waiting on; I know mail has been slow but I have been sending out messages to the swappers that are extra late to check in, and many of them are just not replying. I've yet to rate anyone down, but I am afraid I will have to start and I really don't want to. So if you have sent something late, please let me know and I will hold off rating.

I've gotten a postcard with no name or swap name (postmarked Peoria), but I can't rate it, so message me if it is from you

I enjoy books, letter writing, camping, travel, train trips, hiking. I am a Nurse, and I've worked in a ton of different areas, but right now I work in a plain old doctor's office. I'm fairly new to swap-bot, but took up letter writing and sending postcards as a new "covid hobby." I thought it wold be a good way to be able to use some of the great stationery and postcards I have found. But I keep getting such great goodies from other swap-bot members, that its hard to use things up as fast as I am gaining new things.

When it comes to letters/postcards I love anything vintage or retro. Actually when it comes to paper goods I like all of it. So if you have a postcard or bit of stationary that you have been hesitating on sending out because you think it’s “not good enough” then now’s your chance - you’ll still get a 5 from me as long as it fits the swap's criteria. I've always weirdly loved mail and paper/pens, so I'm surprised I never found this website before now. And I mean all paper...like one time my cousin was working for a company that was throwing out old fill in forms, for like an insurance company or something, I was probably 8 years old, and he gave me two paper sacks full of these random tablets of forms. My parents threw all of them away except about 2 inches worth because they didn't think I'd actually want them and it made me cry when I found out. And I was the kid that didn't even cry when the school nurse had to pick rocks out of my face from falling while hanging upside down in the playground...anyway...

Comment: Hi Carri. It arrived safely and I will be passing it on in swap #15 (I will take good care of her...hehe). I liked your cute little note. I think that I will start doing that too. Also I am in a swap where I need to send a painting so I will be painting the lovely squirrel picture that you included with the notecard. Going to affix it to cardboard.

Comment: Reading your letter was like reading the letter I sent to my swap partner! I have a similar complaint about Postcrossing except mine was RUSSIAN addresses. They take forever to receive and I'm so impatient. Long live Franki Valli :)
Response: I think I'm going to try sending some more cards on post crossing, and hope I get some different countries. The last one I got was from Latvia so that was cool.

Comment: Carrii, Thank you for your card. I've found that it's easier to use an old fashioned die cut machine rather than my Cricut to cut card stock. I haven't practiced much with the Cricut. I think your card turned out beautifully.
Response: Thank you, I am determined to figure it out!

Comment: Hi! I'm so happy to hear that you've planted more rose bushes! I'm terrible at keeping anything alive lol, but we've planted mini peppers and they're in our enclosed porch and they've been thriving! I hope that they sprout fruit in the spring/summer time. I know the roses will be beautiful! I'm so curious as to why you call them "Ketchup and Mustard." That's so cute! Stay safe and healthy!
Response: That's their real name!! I wish I could share a picture on here, but I don't know how, just google "Ketchup and Mustard Roses" and you will see why they are called that, they are amazing!
