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.

Favorite colors that I like: Bright Pink or Fushia, Lime Green, Sunshine Yellow, Purple, Navy, and Red,

Favorite room colors, I like cream, light brown, so I can accent it with a brighter color. Accent colors purple, reds, greens, blues, 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, lighthouses, snow capped mountains, covered bridges, famous buildings, and countryside, . 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

Decorative paper napkins for tea or company

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.

Any tourist card

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 like real photos for the most part. I do like Christopher Arndt Postcards as well.


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: What a fun envelope - and matching snail mail card and goodies inside! : ) Thank you, Jo!!! It is always fun getting mail from you! xoxo
Comment: Hi Jo! Thanks for the nice selection of pcs - as always I enjoy swapping with you! I noticed you mailed on 01/30 and it just got here today - what is up with the post office?? I normally don't fuss about them but 22 days seems a bit extreme - pony express or maybe bad weather? Anyhow they got here safely and I do appreciate that! Just did not want you to think I had been holding onto them! Until our next swap! LOL! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
