Hi Snail Mail Friends

Hi, I'm Jessica, 31 and I live in Texas with my husband and family of animals. Two cats and two dogs. I enjoy making happy mail and paper crafts. I try to make things that people will really enjoy.

Note regarding my 3s

I'm not perfect and I was tempted to give up and delete my profile after my 3s, but there are great things about swap-bot that you cant find on other forums. Therefore, I've decided to wear these 3s as not a point of shame but as a reminder that I can pick myself up and try again and be successful. A 5.00 would be lovely to have but I am still valuable and I still have a lot to offer as a swapper and as a person in general. :)

If you haven't received a swap from me please message me, I will be happy to resend. If it is a package then I will have a tracking number with it.

Bob's Burgers

I ❤️️ Bob's Burgers. Fox cartoon show for adults. They're a family that cooks specialty burgers, they live above their restaurant and they're tightly knit. They can break out in song at any moment. It's got everything I need and I love everything about it. HintHint*

Books & Music

CURRENTLY READING... Absolutely nothing. So if you have any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate them.

I usually don't like scary movies but I enjoy Stephen King and Neil Gaiman. I grew up with Harry Potter, so of course there's that. Outlander series, Gillian Flynn, Liane Moriarty books, David Sedaris is good for a fun laugh. I also like toI read/listen to books in all forms. Paperback, e-reader, audio. I love a good audio book, I can get twice the house work done without skipping a beat. Who am I kidding, I rarely get housework done.


I really enjoy alternative. If you listen to Sirius radio, my go to stations are Alt Nation and The Spectrum. Love: Cold War Kids, The Black Keys. Travis, 1975, Daft Punk, Death Cab for Cutie, Sondre Lerche, The Shins, Norah Jones, Ben Folds, Vampire Weekend, Florence + The Machine, Kelly Clarkson, M83, Muse, Nouvelle Vague, Spoon, The Killers. Pretty much anything that was popular in 2007, I love, LOL.

Movies & Television


Game of Thrones on HBO (it's been such a long journey) and Shrill on Hulu (updated April 2019)

Shows I've loved: Hannibal, Happy Endings, Mad Men, Six Feet Under, Breaking Bad, The Killing, Better Call Saul, Downton Abbey, Fargo, Archer, How I Met Your Mother, Transparent, Red Oaks, Outlander, Penny Dreadful, Broadchurch, Sherlock, The Fall, Stranger Things, GOT


Bohemian Rhapsody Thoroughly enjoyed it (I need to go to the movies more)

I like but am not limited to: independent films, comedies, romantic comedies and dramas. I have been oddly dipping my toe in some scary flicks

Some favorite movies include: Eternal Sunshine for the Spotless Mind, Secretary, Step Brothers, Annie Hall, Rushmore, Howl's Moving Castle

Useful Info for Swaps

Postcards: I prefer PCs to be sent naked. But if it needs protecting, it's fine to send it in an envie, just use your judgement.

Teas: I like most teas except for chai tea. I'm so sorry Chai Tea, I really wanted to like you, but I just don't.

Comment: Thanks so much absolutely love the cookie post card 🤣 would have no idea that’s what it was lol
Comment: Thanks for the fun package!
Comment: Hello Jessica -- thanks for the nice note and stamps. I love using the older stamps. I find many at stamp collector shows -- the guys there (it's nearly all men!) sell off "regular" unused stamps cheaply -- like 70 cents on the dollar! You might google and see if there are any in your area. you're in a big city, so I'm sure there are. Also, I see packets of unused stamps for sale on ebay & etsy -- again, often sold for less than face value. PM me if you need more info! Love sharing stamps! Best, al
Response: Thank you for the useful information! I'll have to check out the nearest Stamp Show near me. :)
Comment: Oh my goodness! This definitely brightened my week! My car got clipped yesterday and the person drove off, dragging off my front bumper. So that sucked. But this envelope of amazingness helped! I love the card, and all the items you tucked inside. SO MUCH!!! Thank you thank you! <3
Response: Oh no! That sounds awful! I'm sorry that happened to you. I'm glad to hear that I was able to make your day a little brighter, even in a small way. :)

Comment: Hello Jessica. I got your swap, at first I was a little bit confused because I couldn't find the note and I did not know what swap this belonged to! It has been a couple months since the deadline. But regardless I loved everything you sent and I can clearly see how much thought you put into this swap and there is not one thing in this envelope I do not love! Just remember to always keep in touch with your partners when sending late :] Thank you, happy swapping!
milamilamura rated for Happy Mail, Yay! #27 on Jan 21, 2019
Comment: Dec 9, 2018: It's been almost 4 months since you marked this swap as sent and I still haven't received anything. I sent you a message but you haven't been online in almost 3 months, so no idea if you'll be back to fix your ratings, but I hope you do. UPDATED January 21, 2019: Jessica, thank you SO much for this wonderful happy mail. It was truly happy and this is by far one of the best pieces of mail I've ever received, I loved how it was all Valentine's Day themed, which is my favorite theme ever. I wish I could rate you a 5 but this was sent very late, however, I'm very thankful for what you've sent and I'll make sure I give it all a good use. I appreciate how much care and effort you've clearly put into this swap, thank you!
Response: Sorry for the delay milamilamura. I will be working on your swap and will message you once it is on it's way to you. Your package is on it's way! Hope you get it soon.
Comment: Aug 06, 2018: I'm sorry, but sending deadline was June 11. I messaged you on July 22 and you answered the same day that you'll message me once it's been resent. I didn't hear anything since this and I still didn't receive anything. I recently got some swaps from US within a week, so the resend should be here already. // Re-rated on Jan 21, 2019: You contacted me on Aug 8, 2018 about another re-send and the next time I heard from you, was on Dec 31. I finally received the so-called *re-re-re-send* postmarked Jan 2, 2019. I re-rate a 3 as it's more than 7 months after the sending deadline. Thanks for the tea and the extras.
Response: I'm sorry for not messaging you about the resend. I took a picture of the swap just in case this happened again and can send it to you if you would like. Nevertheless, I will surely send you out a re-resend promptly and message you about it. Sorry for this inconvenience, if I could track international letters I would. I'll try to make this one extra special for you. Re-resend sent out on 8/8/18. Fingers crossed! You never know when a swap is going to give us a hard time or not. I sent this and several several weeks later it was returned to me damaged and labeled undeliverable. I don't know why. But I won't give up. I will send you your swap. And keep on trying until the day you tell me it has gotten to you.
