I love sending mail and opening my mailbox to find a surprise but have slowed down on my swaps due to the disappointments I have experienced. I am way more selective. I am generous with my hearts and only ask that you put in some effort!
I paint (oil), am an amateur photographer, love music and poetry. I am very curious about the world and those who are in it and would enjoy another person's perspective on the every day. My over-used saying is that there is beauty in the breakdown. In other words, it's the every day details that give me the greatest joy.
I believe that all people, regardless of sex, sexual preferences, religion or race, deserve respect. Anything contrary will not be appreciated. Please do not send me anything religious in nature, I respect your beliefs but am not interested in discussing them.
I love all things vintage. Old paper dolls, cards, paper, envelopes etc. I have just started collecting stationary supplies such as stamps, wax seals and crafting paper. I have a HUGE collection of antique buttons and linens!
Please don't send food, candy or tea. I don't like things from the dollar store, plastic jewelry or cheap feeling items. I will not use generic printed (picture) envelopes unless really spectacular, preferring instead to make my own envelopes.
I am so looking forward to sharing and experiencing the joy of letters.
It kind of exasperates me to have to be specific but after a few swaps I see why everyone has such detailed profiles.... so see below.... G
Black and white photography, landscapes, art, Victorian, architectural and the unexpected.
I don't really like multi views or printed off postcards. I spend a great deal of time hunting out cool and beautiful cards to send you, it would be nice to know you did the same.
Or if you wanted to create a postcard, I would love that! I have really enjoyed receiving recycled postcards made of book covers etc.
I always send something special. I live for this stuff! I imagine you opening my swap and being excited and pleased.
I will not send you dollar store items. Old food or candy. I refuse to send you something I wouldn't want and I will NOT pass on those items to another swapper. Please, please... keep this in mind. I am not a junk deposit.
It amazes me how many swaps I get without a letter included. I love reading about your little corner of the world and am so disappointed when I open a package to a swap sans letter.
I always, ALWAYS send a letter. It doesn't mean you have to write back, but if you do that's wonderful too!
A letter, if thoughtful, will usually earn you a heart.
Please don't send me these. I am careful about the weight of my packages due to postage charges, I weigh every letter prior to sending. I will not be using up space in my swaps to forward these on.
If anyone would like to do an "off the record" letter swap, I am open to that. Especially if we have swapped before.
Oh! Or REAL junk journals. I would love to exchange those. The kind where we use very little scrap book paper and include items (crap) from our day to day.
Just send me a message.
