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 💕

Often, I make my own envelopes, using double sided tape, and adhere items, for cover my envelope or handmade postcards, with another adhesive. I’m curious to know, if these handmade items hold up in the mail as well as I hope/think. If you receive something from me that looks like the adhesive isn’t doing what it should, please let me know, so I can adjust my glue products accordingly.

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.
