I enjoy sending and receiving swaps! I do rate the day I receive them. I rate everyone because that way I can Thank you and also you know I did receive it. If I don't rate, I probably didn't receive your swap.

collecting postcards ( I don't mind you writing a note and just dropping them in the mail without an envelope) Please make the postcards be child friendly. No Nude pictures, please!

stickers, papercrafts, ink stamps, washi tape, gel pens, colored pencils, markers

I like to journal as well!

notecards, stationary


pen pals(I really like chatty letters too!)

travel(anything to do with your area or country)I like beaches with the mountains in the background. Like Maine coastline or the Great Lake Region. Lighthouse are interesting along with Covered Bridges.

Paris, London, Venice, this interest me.

Tea cups and teapots(anything with tea cups or teapots on it )notecards, postcards, stickers

Drinking Tea and Hot Cocoa! I love Peppermint Tea, but open to try all kinds of tea. I also love Southren Sweet Tea in the summer.

country life(old rustic barns, chickens, jersery cows, bikes with baskets, pictures with an old truck on them like the Walton's truck, picnics ) Sunflowers too Any notecards, stickers, with these items is great as well.

I like to eat ice cream! Ice cream stickers are great too! Or any notecards, writing paper with ice cream on it.

Love to "Read" Cookbooks and collect them too

I like to read Christian Fiction on Mysteries, Romance, Biographies, homesteading stories, tea books, devotionals, and well anything you think I may like.

learning about other foods and cultures

I like all flowers! I enjoy fresh flowers on the dining room table. I love flower gardens but mine aren't like the professional ones. Some of my favorite are Sunflowers, Tulips, Roses, Star grazer lilies, and Lupines.

shabby chic


Favorite colors that I like to wear and use in crafts bright pink, lime green, purple, yellow and sometimes red.

Favorite room colors, I like cream, light brown, so I can accent it with a brighter color. Accent colors purple, reds, greens, and yellows.

I like collecting postcards from other places that show the person's town, historical place, flowers native to that area, scenic postcards, and local foods. I don't mind if you write something on it! No nude ones! I like them so, I can share them with my children.


My dislikes are: Fairies Dark or evil looking items Snakes I don't care for Halloween so please don't send anything that pertains to this. I do like Fall looking items, apples, pumpkins, Thanksgiving.

About Me

I enjoy traveling around the USA, but would love to travel abroad again someday. Since traveling is expensive, doing swap-bot can help knowing other from other countries and the USA.

When I was a in grade school, we got a pen pal from another local school. That is where I learned to love have pen pals. Than I went to camp and learned more friends to write too. That was back in the day of no electronics. In High School, I got my first try at an international pen pal.

I am a wife and mother to 3 children.

Send me anything listed here:

anything from another country

tourist books

Frig magnets


Christian Fiction books you have read and liked, Biographies, Non-Fiction books on Flower, Herbs, picture books showing your area, inspirational coffee table books


Note cards or Stationary(I like Punch Studio products, Lang, Leanin' Tree, but them are just some favorites. I really like anything you send me.)

Stickers(not teacher ones)

Address labels

Letter openers

Anything to do with teapots, teacups


cloth napkins

Decorative paper napkins for tea or company

recipes or cookbooks

journals and things for it

gel pens

washi tape

Tea, coffee, or hot cocoa


Gift Cards too: Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Chick fi la, Cracker Barrel are some of my favorites!

or anything that is listed above and not here!

I do like pocket letters and getting in to making them.

Things not to send me:

make up samples don't care for tattoos stick ons Halloween things nude postcards ( want child friendly)

Postcard Wishlist

Prince William and Kate plus the family

Eiffel Tower of Paris

Any Europe Landmarks

Coastal pictures with the mountains and ocean

Beautiful Snow covered mountains


Scenic pictures

Flowers(like roses, star gazer lilies, lupines, sunflowers, tulips, as my favorites but like almost all Flowers)

Keep Calm postcards

Your town or city

That would be my preferences right now but I am sure I will like it whatever you do send. Just keep it child friendly!

You can write on the back and send it.


I always send swaps and rate as well! If you don't receive a rating, I probably didn't receive the swap as of yet or it was lost in the mail. I usually contact the swap partner if I don't receive something in a months time, before I rate a bad rating. Life happens and this is to be a fun experience, not a stressful hobby.

If you don't receive a swap let me know before given a bad rating. I don't flake, so message me first!

Comment: Thank you for the postcard, note card and the 2 pieces of writing paper. I didn't give you a heart because minimum weight to send was 50 grams, the items you sent barely made 30g. (I don't like giving 3's to anyone so still gave you a 5)
Response: Oh my I didn't convert to grams. I will pm you!

ArtyBeth3 rated for IWTS: Washi Tape Pen Pal Letter on Jul 9, 2018
Comment: I received your lovely washi tape pen pal letter today (with fun tapes; plus the 2 super skinny whole rolls too). There was not "right or wrong" way to make the letter. As long as it had some washi on it, which yours did, it was all good! It was a great pen pal letter, and as we are going to be pen pals anyway, I'll use this one to respond to, to get started on our pen pal friendship/journey. :)
Response: Thank you for the great rating! I look forward to your letter too! I have actually sent out another washi tape pen pal letter to someone else! It was fun!
Comment: Thanks for interesting postcards and extras! Cute summery envelope too.
