About Me

I love sending and receiving mail, and I enjoy crafty things as well (see "Favorite Crafts"!) Photography is one of my favorite hobbies, although sadly most of my photos live only on my hard drive these days. :(

I'm a member of postcrossing.com and enjoy connecting with people all over the world through swapping postcards, and attending the local San Diego area Postcrossing Meetups.

I love travel and anything travel related. One of my goals in life is to always have a current/valid Passport - then the potential for adventure is always there!

For swaps, I tend to participate only in flat, 1-stamp swaps. I prefer to keep my postage budget on the more modest side, and I really don't have the space for much "stuff." :) .

Social Media

INSTAGRAM -- Spoiler Alert! I post most of my ATC's on Instagram before sending them, so don't look if you are worried it will spoil a surprise being sent your way!

https://instagram.com/religt/ .

Favorite Crafts

Photography, scrapbooking, zentangle, digital scrapbooking and design, rubber stamping, sewing, writing, blogging. I love hanging out on Pinterest and finding more craft ideas than I can possibly make in a lifetime. :) .

Likes

I like...

  • bright and bold colors, especially cool colors (black, purple, blue, green and dark reds)
  • travel, transportation (especially trains), scenery, art, architecture
  • flowers, florals, trees
  • ocean, beach, seaside
  • National Parks (U.S. or other countries)
  • England, English stuff, Cadbury, "Look Right!" and "Mind the Gap"
  • anything Dutch, as my mother and grandparents are from there! Delft, Tulips, etc. Unfortunately, I don't speak/read/write much Dutch, so please send any messages in English. :)
  • reading, words, thoughtful quotes
  • finding surprises in my mailbox .

Dislikes

I dislike...

  • creepy things (insects, spiders, snakes, etc.)
  • depictions of violence, gore, etc.
  • sexually explicit material (tasteful/artful nudity is fine)
  • I'm not really an animal lover, so although I love flowers and plants, and don't mind most animals, they aren't a favorite subject of mine .

Mailing Preferences

If you are sending at ATC, you need not send it in a protective sleeve as I save all my received cards in larger album pages for cards so I can enjoy them.

For postcard swaps, naked and addressed cards are fine, no envelope needed.

Please don't send ephemera (paper odds and ends) as I haven't been doing much crafting where I can make use of them and I'm VERY limited on space. I do love collecting postcards for my Postcrossing and swap-bot swaps, and it is always a delight to find mail in the box with decorated envelopes, but I really don't expect anything extra with your swap - please give it your best, and mail on time.

I am not a stamp collector, so any ordinary stamp will do! I know there are many stamp collectors on swap-bot, so I will not mind at all if you hoard your stamps for someone else (or yourself!) :) .

Wondering where your swap is?

Please...

  • if you receive a swap from me and for some reason you feel it doesn't meet swap expectations, please contact me so I can make it right

  • if you don't receive your swap, I will do my best to re-send something (because let's face it, sometimes the USPS is the flake!)

  • if you feel you can't give me the highest rating, please contact me so I can try to work something out with you

Thank you!

*** 8/23/2015 *** I have been having some issues with swaps taking a super long time to get to people - one sent within the USA took 3.5 WEEKS! To make matters worse, I've just learned today that at least one swap-bot private message didn't get to me either! AGH! I've been meticulously tracking all my swaps and I usually take a photograph of swaps and the addressed envelopes/postcards before sending, so please do your best to let me know if something isn't reaching you. .

Comment: I love your tangle! Also, how did you make your swap card?? So cool!
Response: Thank you! I designed the swap paper using digital scrapbooking supplies and Photoshop, and then had it printed through Shutterfly. You could probably adapt one of their designs to be a swap-themed notepad. I get their emails and they are always offering me free stuff, although the shipping $ is kind of high. :)

Hi! I'm glad to know another Pinterest addict! And I'm glad I'm your sending partner in the Nice Profile Comment Swap! I read mostly non-fiction, so if you ever want a book recommendation, I'll try to help! Photography? That sounds wonderful! I use my phone to capture patterns in nature... I have a collection, but other than that...lol;) Hugs!

Nice to meet you! I've never met so many people who are interested in the Royal Family and the UK until I started getting to know people on swapbot. We share many similar interests, including a love of travel and photography. I love Pinterest, but sometimes it gives me idea anxiety.  althello
