About Me

!!!!****My family has been through two horrible tragedies in the past month. My grandmother lost her battle with Alzheimers a few weeks ago. As we were working through that, my younger sister went missing. 10 days later, her ex husband confessed to murdering her and dumping her in the woods. I am broken, but trying to remain strong for my children and my nieces and nephew. We have a long road ahead. I will be taking some time away from Swapbot. I hope you understand.****!!!!

Hi! I'm Elle! I'm 31. I have two awesome kiddos, three doggos and two rat babies! I am stamp and postcard collector from Missouri, USA. My goal is to receive a postcard from every state in the USA!

I am also an amateur photographer. I stick to mostly nature and macros. I am obsessed with natural patterns. Spring and fall are my favorite times for photography. Daffodils are my favorite kind of flower to photograph.

My favorite colors are purple and teal. I love space themed things. Galaxies, nebulas, planets, etc. I also love owls!

I am a bit of a nerd. I love Star Wars and Harry Potter. Theyโ€™re two of my favorite universes. I am a Hufflepuff/Ravenclaw hybrid and wouldnโ€™t change it for the world!

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy paper crafting most, but I love all crafts. Collages, scrapbooks, painting, knitting, quilting. I even tried making stained glass once. It didn't end well ๐Ÿ˜‚

I love happy mail of all kinds!! I love mail art. I have more stickers and washi tape than anyone really needs. Etsy and Ali are two of my weaknesses! I could spend hours wandering through staples too!!

I have a day planner that I update religiously. I dream of one day going to a planner convention!!

Favorite Books

-Harry Potter (Prisoner of Azkaban is my fave)
-Thrilers/Suspense - I Love Gillian Flynn
-To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
-The Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger
-Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen
-One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey
-The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath -Anything by Roald Dahl
-Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls

Honestly, I will read just about anything!

I am a bibliophile. I could spend all day in an antique bookstore. I love used books. They have so much character. Reading is my favorite thing to do!

Favorite Music

I love everything from Classical to Dubstep. My playlist is rather...eclectic! My favorite band of all time is Queen. Classic rock is my go to!


I prefer my cards naked with a note of some kind. Iโ€™m a sucker for puns and lame jokes if you donโ€™t know what to write!
