** So excited to be back to swapping after a move to the wonderful 49th State of Alaska in December 2018! I may have some traveling postcards out there with my old CA address, please PM me for an update! **
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." :) .
INSTAGRAM -- Spoiler Alert! I post many of my swaps on Instagram before sending them, so don't look if you are worried it will spoil a surprise being sent your way!
Photography, scrapbooking, Zentangle, digital scrapbooking and design, rubber stamping, sewing, writing, blogging, knitting & quilting. I visit Pinterest when I want more ideas than I can create in a lifetime. :) .
ATC: 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.
POSTCARDS: 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!) :) .
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
*** 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. .
