Admin-y Stuff

Please use stamps whenever possible, even on packages! I can never get enough stamps! If you are a swap-botter who doesn't collect stamps, please clip the stamps you get from envelopes and send them to me. I will send you some goodies back!

If we're in a stamp swap, please try to pick out ones for me with legible postmarks, where you can read the year or name of the town. I would rather have a current stamp with a legible postmark than a really old or rare one without. Countries I collect are US, China and Russia. Topics I collect are Cats, Finance/Banking and Spaceships/Planets/Stars (all countries).

If you have ANYTHING with a legible June 17 postmark, please send it to me. I will reward you handsomely!

I'm downsizing my belongings right now, so I'm definitely doing fewer swaps, and when I swap "stuff", I am mostly trying to get rid of things, with a few exceptions: tea, makeup, books, bath+body, candy, postage stamps (used and unused), non-touristy postcards.

I collect beautiful postmarks, tasteful used envelopes with pretty handwriting / calligraphy, and current commemorative stamps. If your letter includes these I will be wishing I could give you more hearts.

I LOVE the round hand-stamped postmarks that say the name of your town.

I will probably be happy with anything you send me! I mostly just enjoy opening mail.

About Me

Artist / Bookkeeper in NYC. Nearly 30. Child free career girl, but I do have awesome kids in my life to babysit. I'm a colorful minimalist, a postage nerd (love stamps!), and a cat at heart.


I love ALL Written + Stamped Postcards from where you are, or ANY subject you're interested in. Surprise me!

If it's a blank postcard swap, please do not send me touristy postcards unless they are of New York or Ohio! I don't really have a use for them.

I'm not really interested in ad cards- not enough room to write and I feel funny sending them on.

Handmade postcards are fine if you spend time and effort on it: I bring out the postcard boxes to show to friends when they come over, so make sure you're sending me something that you are proud of!

I am not easily offended, at all. If you're holding on to some cards that you're worried will offend someone, write 'em up and send them to me!

Of course, postcards are just as much about what you write on them as the pictures :) I look forward to reading it!

Please Do Send

Things I'll love:

Cat Anything

Bath and Body

postcards with cats

Postage Stamps- even ones clipped from your junk mail


Anything I can't regularly find in the US

Kawaii Anything

Unusual Tea

** Hair clips and rubber bands **

Instant Heart

Instant heart if you...

  • Use unusual stamps on your letters! Current commemoratives cost the same as the boring ones- might as well get the fun ones right?

-Anything involving candy.

  • If you are at the post office anyways, please have the person at the window hand-cancel the stamp with their round cancel-stamper-thingy. It is WAY prettier than the machine's cancellation, it has the name of your local PO on it :) This is an "instant heart" thing and it doesn't even cost money :)

Please Don't Send

I'm not a picky person at all, generally. But please don't send me:

  • Teacher stickers
  • Religious items
  • Blank Touristy Postcards

I would rather get a smaller amount of nicer things than a larger amount of dollar store stuff. So if a swap says "send 10 things" but you only send me one nice one, I will probably be delighted and give you a heart.

Wish List

I'm looking for someone who is sewing-inclined to sew me a laptop-sized tote bag or backpack with cats on it. I have absolutely zero sewing skill. What I can offer in return are custom drawings (portraits of your family or a watercolor of your home), packages full of papercrafting and other goodies, pretty much anything you like :)

Here's an example of my drawing: A picture I drew of someone's daughter at the beach

Comment: Thank you for the tea and lovely letter. I look forward to drinking it and writing you back!
Comment: Thank you for the Emancipation Proclamation Abraham Lincoln postcard. This has to be by far the most interesting (and important) postcard that I have ever received. It led me to read up a lot of American history. I have put the postcard in my blog at: .. http://flynnfrogg.blogspot.sg/2015/08/wc-94-532-emancipation-proclamation-of.html .. Once again, thank you.
Comment: awesome envelope, thank you so much, happy swapping

Comment: Don't worry about it.
Response: Whew. Glad I got in touch with you. I swear the color left my face for a few minutes. You sure? I'd still be happy to re-send, or send you something else like a postcard.

Comment: Hey hun!! I got the book today in the mail!! looks interesting, i'll have to buy the first book first ! thanks for sending me it!!
Response: No need to buy the first book first-- I read it alone and it stands alone very well! The characters even change throughout the book- it's more like a collection of short stories.
