About Me

January 2021–I have NEVER sent a swap late. I received my first 1 rating, which was due to lost/misdirected mail; the recipient didn’t message me about it before giving me a rating of 1, three+ months after the swap ended. I re-sent the swap the same day I was alerted it had not been received, but I haven’t heard from her since then. I have sent her 5 PMs and left a comment on her profile. There is nothing more I can do.

I enjoy hand-writing letters so much, but my dominant hand has developed a pinched nerve or something that makes it difficult to grasp a pen. Some days are better than others, but I often have to resort to typing letters. Sorry if that's disappointing to a swap partner!

I always appreciate tuck-ins on swaps, but if you’re my partner don't feel it's necessary or expected to send any.

A few things about me:

  • 47yo, female, married w/ 4 kids (2 grownups, 2 teens)
  • atheist homeschooler--no denim jumpers here!
  • I cook several hours a day--all gluten-free and vegan
  • paper addict, esp unusual writing paper
  • washi paper addict as well
  • constantly reading, don’t leave home without my kindle or a book
  • unrepentant potty mouth
  • I love coffee!
  • allergic to nature IRL but gravitate toward colors found in nature, especially autumnal colors
  • after 5pm you WILL find me drinking white wine
  • NPR is my jam
  • Most of the day I listen to podcasts or news shows while working, driving, crafting, etc.--I'm always looking for recommendations, so feel free to suggest. There are about 70 podcasts on rotation in my ears.
  • I like to write and receive long, newsy letters, though I warn that I'm not terribly efficient at time management so I might not write for a month then three times the following month. I'm full of surprises that way!


  • books! Fiction, non-fiction, mysteries, thrillers, classics, poetry...I will read pretty much anything except fantasy/sci-fi. I like there to be at least some semblance of realism
  • pen-pal letters
  • sarcasm
  • Indigo Girls
  • washi tape/stickers
  • colors: olive/jade green is favorite, followed by purple, silver, mustard, burnt umber, brown, gray, teal, turquoise
  • men in kilts
  • podcasts, especially humorous or political
  • vintage/retro
  • art nouveau
  • art deco
  • mandalas
  • daisies, sunflowers, bonsai
  • botanical images
  • butterflies/dragonflies
  • unusual typography
  • book pages or type in languages other than Englis
  • kaleidoscopes & similar imagery


  • hair
  • rodents
  • housework
  • stereotypical "girly" stuff
  • animal prints
  • camel toe
  • fantasy/sci-fi
  • traditional holiday stuff; it just seems so artificial, especially xmas
  • anything containing lavender (I'm allergic). Love the color, not the plant
  • sweets/candy
  • ribbon/fabric
  • religious or faith-based ANYTHING
  • “cute” or kawaii
  • kiddie/juvenile stuff


  • out-of-the-ordinary
  • artsy
  • funny
  • eccentric
  • vintage
  • non-touristy

Comment: Will re-rate if I ever get anything
Response: I re-sent the swap the same day you let me know it hadn't been received, when you rated me a 1 without letting me know, even though it had been 3+ months since the swap ended. I have sent 5 messages and there's nothing more I can do.

Comment: Hi Debbie and thanks so much for the big selection of gorgeous envelopes!! The one with the unicorns is perfect for my grand-niece, she will love it and the map of Paris made me really nostalgic, we haven't been there since 2016 and really miss it. This was a great swap, thanks so much :0) Happy Swapping!

Thank you for the notecards and understanding my goof. I will enjoy using these cards for my chemo buddy (I send once a week to a woman on IV chemo).
