About Me

I'm a 33 year old female, NY native who now lives in Pennsylvania. I’m going to school for my nursing degree, and I have my Criminal Justice Degree.

I married my wonderful husband Aug 2020. We live together in our house with our two kitties, Aaron Purr, Sir, and Piper. I gave birth to my amazing little boy on Sept 8, 2022, and he’s my pride and joy.

I love to do penpalling stuff (swapping, making FBs, looking for new swappers, and being a LLP), read, browse the internet, or just relax with a nice cup of coffee or tea, although my chances to relax are few and far between.

I love when people add comments to my rating... telling me something they particularly liked, or hey, something I could use some effort on.


*FBs, Sticker bags, Label bags, Goodie bags, and Lyrix. I especially love getting Lyrix and goodie bags because they're so rare, I think! I think I’ve seen maybe 2 lyrix in my 15 years of swapping!

*Anything relating to Hamilton the American Musical, or Lin-Manuel Miranda. I’m super obsessed. No, really... I have a Hamilton tattoo, in Lin’s handwriting.

*Labels are always welcome. They also don't need to be sticky- even on regular printer paper would be totally helpful, as I use those for label bags!

*Unusual teas- Never was much of a tea drinker until I joined up for swap-bot and got some really cool teas! MUCH better then lipton :) I am trying to drastically cut down on my caffeine intake, so caffeine free would be great!

*those little packets of powder that you put in a glass of water to make it flavored... I usually don’t drink water on its own, so these help me stay hydrated!

*Stickers... As odd as this may sound... please no holographic stickers! The texture freaks me out, lol. Also if you send loose stickers, please note that on the envelope so I can be sure to open it with care, instead of having a bunch of stickers fall onto my lap. If you forget to do so, no big deal :) Stickers are extra nice right now, since I use some pretty tape to close my envelopes with a sticker at the point since the covid outbreak.

*Animal related items (pigs, penguins, dogs, cats, frogs, and monkeys mainly. But any cute animal item I'm sure I'll love)

*Swap cards. Ya know, those things that say "you have rec'd a swap from HeidiJean" with a spot to write in the swap name and the date

*I LOVE TO READ, specifically fiction. If the swap is a smaller one, bookmarks are always more than welcome. My favorite author is Stephen King. If anyone has me for a swap, and wants to send a book, I’d love a copy of his book, “Rage.” (I’m laughing because even a poor quality copy goes for almost, if not more than, a grand!)

*Gum or candy, just not chocolate!

*Candles- especially anything Vanilla, cookie, fruit flavored. I tend to shy away from pine/floral scents, because if they're too strong I get a headache.

*Washi tape— especially now with the whole COVID-19 business, I’m using that to seal my envies for everyone’s safety :)

*Anything bath related.... wash clothes, bubble baths, lotion, wash, soap (no bar, unless it's home-made- those are awesome!), soaks. Again, I tend to skip over floral when shopping for myself. No bath bombs though, it deeply saddens me to say that they cause me to break out

*Chapsticks/lip gloss. I kinda have an addiction ;)

*Adult/sexually themed items are welcome! I have a lovely collection of adult themed ATCs!

*anything crescent moon themed

*Anything lotus themed


If you send me something I don’t like/can’t use, it’s not a huge deal, I just save it until I can find someone who will appreciate it :) But if you’d like to make me happy, please no...

*chocolate- I'm only a fan about two days a month ;)

*Yarn, I have no use for it.


*Anime; I never could get into it... sorry!

*Holographic stickers, as listed above in the "wishlist" section... I can't stand the feeling! [shudder]. Also bubble stickers- I have no use for them.

*Brads. I don't even know what these are...

*CONFETTI. I always get super frustrated when I open an envelope and get covered in glitter and/or confetti. If you're a confetti fanatic, and you feel as if you MUST include it, then please at least warn me on the envie :)

*Anything with tea tree oil in it. Apparently I'm allergic to it, and I get a rash :(

*I have a bunch of those ATC sized papers that are kawaii, I think? They look like mini memo sheets...? I usually pass them along... I’m never sure what to do with them...

*American Flag/USA/patriotic items

Checking mail...

My PO Box WAS 5 min from my house until I moved 30 min away. Changing your swapping address is a hassle (it wouldn’t be a big deal if I didn’t have FBs, LBs, etc with my current PO Box on it!). I try to check my PO Box about once every week, week and a half. I can mail from my house so I can still send on time, but if I haven’t rated you, I wouldn’t sweat it! I ALWAYS rate, and I rate it the day I check my box. Don’t worry, every now and again I go through my unrated swaps, and if the send by date was more than 2 weeks ago, I’ll reach out!

If for any reason you have to pay extra postage, PLEASE let me know ASAP and I will 100% rectify the situation!

Thank you so much for the sudoku puzzles via RAKs Only June. Hubby said to thank you as well for the variety of skill levels. He was very happy, also, that they are on separate pages... makes them easy to slip onto his planner to take with him for breaks at work.
