About Me

7/20-After taking a break from Swap-Bot, I am back. I'm mainly interested in book and postcard swaps for now. My boys are now 19 and 20 and attend college. We lost our two Boxers to cancer and an accident. We have a new Boxer, Aria who is one year old.

I’m a mother of two teenagers (16 & 17) living in a small town. I also have two Boxers. I love to read, create mail art, take pictures, and hang out with family and friends. I can't survive without coffee. I try to treat others the way I would want to be treated. I love everything that has to do with snail mail and stationery.

Favorite Music

My taste in music ranges from "you need to listen to this" to "I know, please don't judge me." Al Green, Otis Redding, Adele, Gwen Stefani, Twenty One Pilots, Maroon 5, Blake Shelton, Marvin Gaye, Bruno Mars....the list goes on.

Favorite Crafts

I love to scrapbook but I am so behind and overwhelmed so it’s an ongoing struggle.

Favorite Television

My current favorites are Queen Sugar, Peaky Blinders, Ozark, The Voice, Mayans and Yellowstone. Past favorites were 24, Big Bang Theory, Being Mary Jane, Nashville, & Scandal.

Favorite Postcards

Themes I like

Postcards of your photography,

Humming Birds,

Coffee,

Butterflies,

Royalty (My name means "Queen" in Spanish.)

Anything Marvel

Street art, Banksy

Fountain pens, letters and journals

Books, libraries, reading, or writing

Mail, airmail, or postal themes

If you need a topic to write about, I would love a book recommendation or your favorite book quote.

Wish list

You don't need to send me anything just to include something with the original swap. I won’t rate down for not receiving “extras”. If this happens to be a swap where you are required to include something extra I’ve listed some likes below.

My favorite things are

  • Bookish ATCs - Someone sent me a book shelf ATC and I use it for a bookmark now.
  • notecards with envelopes
  • unused non-touristy postcards
  • Bookmarks!! From homemade to the magnetic kind
  • anything air-mail, travel, postal themed
  • BookCrossing labels
  • Book themed washi
  • doll/girl stickers like La Dolce Vita or Capital Chic designs or similar ones.
  • anything Baby Yoda

BookCrossing

I recently discovered BookCrossing and I am hooked! Most of the books I own are registered and labeled with BookCrossing labels. If you receive a book from me with a BookCrossing label, all you have to do is enter the BCID number at www.bookcrossing.com and let me know you have received it. You can create a journal entry anonymously or you can sign up for a free account. If you sign up, please consider using Queen72 as the one who referred you.

Swap-Bot

Please take the time to rate me and I will do the same for you. If for some reason you are missing my rating, please feel free to contact me so we can resolve this matter quickly. My goal is to get swaps completed so they can be archived in a timely manner.

Favorite Books

I am a voracious book reader and love bookish swaps. My favorite genres are the classics, contemporary, true crime, general fiction, historical fiction, memoir, mystery, thriller, and YA. My least favorite genres are science fiction, horror books, self-help, or religious books

My favorites include:

  • The Book of Lost Friends by Lisa Wingate
  • Warcross by Marie Lu
  • Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
  • It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
  • All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood
  • The Power of the Dog by Don Winslow
  • Castle of a Water by Dane Huckelbridge
  • Beartown by Fredrik Backman
  • My Dark Vanessa by Kate Elizabeth Russell
  • Columbine by Dave Cullen
  • When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi

Thanks for returning my NM mapcard. If I had another I would send it to you. I swapped heavily on Facebook for my US mapcard collection which I completed over a year ago. There are so many different maps for each state. Love the cute stamps you decorated my card with. Take care!
