About Me

Huge wish item: I would love to swap with someone for this coin: “France celebrates the 25th anniversary of the pink ribbon as a symbol of the fight against breast cancer with a new circulating commemorative €2 coin. Released on September 25, 2017.”
Please let me know if you have one that you would be willing to swap 💝

Hi there! My name is Nitisha, and I live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. The city I live in is Prince George, BC. I moved here in 2001, and I really do love it 💕
I have enjoyed collecting stamps and coins since a young age, and the novelty never wore off!!

My life is currently undergoing massive changes. I've needed to adjust the time spent on swapping to focus on the challenges. (I'll be very limited on the swaps I join for a bit) I will be back more hopefully soon though.

I had a beautiful sweet short haired, orange and white 18 year old cat named Baylea. Autocorrect would often correct her name to "Battles" so she was dubbed my battle cat. She went to the rainbow bridge on March 10th 2017. 💔😿 You never really notice all of the idiosyncratic habits that you have with your pets, until you don't have them around anymore, each one is a reminder of how much she was loved and will be missed.

Thankfully, I am generally an overly positive person, I'm always continually looking to see positives. This passed year has been full of changes, challenges and loss, so some days are less positive than others. Feel free to send your favourite inspirational or positive quote(s) if you're my partner for a postcard swap...or any swap really. They seem to show up when I need them most 💕

Swapping 💕

I have NO intentions of flaking. If you don't receive something from me PLEASE let me know before giving me a bad rating so I can resend if necessary. Thanks :) Sometimes I take stuff to the post office (especially if I am concerned it may not fit through their lil slot checker) but I do also use the red mail boxes when I know weight and size shouldn't be a concern...I have no idea how often they get picked up from those things, but I mark as sent after I drop off, be it the post office or a post box.

Also, if for some reason there is postage due; please Please PLEASE let me know, and we can figure something out that works for both of us. I would like to know if it does happen though in-case it becomes an issue.

I want mail swapping to be enjoyable and I hope that my swap partners feel the same way.

Comment: I kinda really loved this PC. Thanks for sending it to me. Fall has really taken hold here too (finally) and sleeping with the windows open at night with it being 3.3 degrees C is great because you get to snuggle under a lot of blankets. :)

Comment: Thanks for the beautiful photo card. I do not have anything like Photo Shop but it's on my wish list. I really like what you did with your photo. I gave this rating when I received the card but evidently didn't save it. Sorry! It is a very unique card.
Response: Thank you for the positive feedback 😊 I've had that happen to me with rating too, where I'm positive I've rated, but it hasn't saved! Thank-you for taking the time to rate, again. I am happy to know my swap arrived.

Comment: Thank you for the amazing package you sent me. I love all those metal embellishments and can't wait to start using them!!! The stamps on canvas were super cool too. Did you make or buy those? I have some blank canvas I use as book pages in my junk journals so I'm definitely borrowing that fabulous idea 😍😘
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the package, that makes me happy!😊 I'm glad I picked out stuff that you can utilize. The stamps on canvas were bought, glad they have inspired some further creations for you!! Thanks for the wonderful rating! 💕
