Jan 2018: I've taken a year break to travel and TCB but am checking in periodically to say hello to friends, play some of the word games, and join a few swaps. ⚘⚘⚘

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). If I send extras, it's because I have something I think you can use. And I love decorated envies, especially when they feature your artwork. It's mostly USA swaps for me these days.

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. :-)
