USA Happy Mail

I'm a mailbox addict from way back (anyone remember all the cool toys you could order from the backs of cereal boxes?), so I'm here to help keep snail-mail alive. I've "met" some wonderful people here and consider them friends. With that said, I try to put a bit of care and thought into swaps and encourage the same.

I send on time and rate the same day swaps are picked up from the post office. As far as hearts go, I give them for thoughtfulness (yours), presentation (yours), and giddiness (mine). I don't need extras with swaps since I'm in a constant state of downsizing. But if I send you extras, it's because I have something I think you can use (i.e., you're helping me downsize). I love decorated envies, especially when they feature your artwork. It's mostly USA swaps for me.

Note: I'm allergic to cigar/ette smoke, and anything dusty gets me sneezing, too. So if you're a smoking swap partner or are contemplating sending me some dusty musties, please help a girl out by airing everything before mailing. I'd do it for you. :-)
