Due to some really unfortunate morning sickness I am cutting back on swapping. I'll still be around. If I owe you a rating please let me know and I will rate right away.
The swapper formerly known as panykattack. Rachel was kind enough to change my name on here (for a variety of reasons).
I'm 30. How the heck did that happen? I've been married for the last 6 years to a truly awesome guy named Shawn and we have a one-year-old son named Asa. We also have another little one on the way. I play piano in our church band. I am a stay-at-home mom and feel it is worth every penny 'lost' from my old job. I'm a liberal Jesus-lover. I enjoy playing games, especially mah jong (the four player version with actual tiles), and would rather hang out with friends than go out. I geocache and I just started with Postcrossing.
Cup & Chaucer is a group I was appointed co-founder of. We do lots of awesome book/reading related swaps. If you're enjoying a good book with a cup of something yummy then come check us out.
Naked Postcards is a group I started. We hold a variety of postcard swaps, all of which require that the postcard be sent naked - meaning stamped and written on and not in an envie. If this is how you like to trade postcards please visit our group.
My obsessions tend to run in phases and my current obsession phase is postcards. I love the huge variety of postcards that exist and want to collect as many as I can. If you are sending to me I prefer my postcard sent naked (no envelope) and written on. To me, that's the point of sending a postcard!
I enjoy most kinds of postcards but here are a few of my fave subjects: anything vintage, France, owls, gnomes, castles, pictures of real people (as in non-celebrity), quotes, libraries/books, mail/mailboxes, roads, windows, doors (especially blue doors). This list is not complete and I like a great number of things.
The only real dislike I have is touristy cards from the United States (though I like vintage map cards).
I am always up for a private trade for postcards.
Oh, and if anyone has postcards based on the artwork of Jordan Crane, especially is "Uptight All Night" collection, you would be my best friend if you wanted to trade for them.

I'll add more as I think of it.
You will not get rated down for sending something on this list (unless it's a profile-based swap) so don't stress too much about what you send me. :)
Twilight, Hello Kitty, black licorice, raisins, patriotic items/themes, anything to do with feet
I do not mind receiving items about other religions but I do ask that you not send me anything related to atheism. I respect your right not to believe but do not want to receive anything about it.
Stuff that smells like smoke! I am extremely sensitive to it and will probably just end up throwing away whatever you send me. I'd rather you didn't send me anything. Icky icky poo!
Currently Reading - The Chronicles of Narnia (a re-read)
ANYTHING by L.M. Montgomery, she's my favorite author.
Irresistible Revolution by Shane Claiborne
Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning
All of Jane Austen's books.
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
Most anything by C.S. Lewis but especially the Chronicles of Narnia
I love Piers Anthony. I'm not much into sci-fi or fantasy but I love his books. The Xanth series is what got me hooked. I want to live in Xanth!
A Wrinkle in Time and the books that follow it by Madeline L'Engle
Harry Potter series
That's just a start. I'm a book nerd.
Disclaimer: This is not a shopping list. If you have me as a partner in a swap, I am not at all expecting you to send me any of these things. (If you choose to it will obviously be much appreciated.) I participate in lots of tags on the forums and this list is for people looking for ideas that have tagged me.
I am not always able to send extras with my swaps but, when I can, I try to include something I think will make my partner smile based on their profile. I will not just throw random things in an envelope and call them extras in hopes of a heart. I would like to be rated on the actual swap item. A comment about what you liked means so much more to me than a heart.
On the flip side, I rate the same way I ask to be rated. I base my ratings on the swap item itself. Please don't feel you have to include extras to get a heart. I do appreciate it when someone passes along something extra that they feel I will enjoy based on my profile, but I don't appreciate an envelope crammed with random 'stuff' that nobody has a use for. Please just put your heart into your work! Extras are just that - extra!
PLEASE pm me if a swap does not arrive before rating a 1! Pretty please! If it didn't arrive, I promise it's because of the post office. I will never flake.
