UPDATE 8/7/17/: It has been more than 2 years since I've logged on to swap-bot; I miss it. If you read below in my "about me" section, only about 10% of what is there is still true... I am now 41, divorced, have moved twice, and only still have one of the dogs that I posted about before (and no human babies). The past few years have been difficult to say the least, but I'm I'm a very good place in life now; I had forgotten how much I enjoy not having to answer or consult with anyone else on my life and choices. I am very happily (legally) single, and am on my way to being truly ME again!
I absolutely flaked on my last swap, it was a crappy thing to do, and I have no right to try to blame it on anything but me. I found so much joy here on Swap-bot that I bit off more than I could handle hoping to fill an empty space emotionally. I am back (I hope I'm allowed back!) And am working to contact my last swap partner to try to send her item... she has also not been on swap-bot for over a year, so I'm hoping I can still find her!
Craftiness/swapiness: Mostly I am here for postcard swaps, but sometimes feel a bit crafty, or gifty. I like to make ATCs, and postcards (sometimes), and am slightly obsessed with glitter glue. I also do a little cross stitching, gardening, and would like to get back into photography and printing my own photos again... Yes, film and paper photography!
I enjoy messing around in my yard and doing things to personalize my house, and traveling. Of course, I always end up coming home with stacks of postcards after a trip!
I have many likes and interests, and it's rare I receive something in a swap that I don't like, or appreciate as long as it fits the swap description. I will never rate down for a card sent naked, stamped, and written on even if it is against swap guidelines!
old: Hello! My name is Heather, I am new here, so not sure exactly what I should put here! I am approaching 40 faster than I'd like to admit to, married, mom to 4 ridiculous rescued dogs, and working on making a human baby;) I am a Paramedic working in a Pediatric ER so that I have a schedule that is more conducive to going back to school. I am taking a math class and Spanish (eeeek!) this semester with the goal of getting in to the Health, Physical Education and Exercise Science program to pursue Physical Therapy.
These things I'm just not into or can't use.
At one point I think I started collecting collections! I try to keep it to just a few things now that don't take up a ton of space:)
I LOVE getting little things in the mail; isn't that why were all here:). I think postcards are fun because they don't take up a ton of space, and can give a little glimpse into someones world. When I am sending postcards, I like to try to find one specific to the person I'm sending for... I'm sure I don't always hit the mark, but I've spent days looking for cards that I think my swap buddy will like.
When receiving cards, I like naked (no envelope!), stamped, and written (preferably with more than just the swap info:) I would LOVE any cards related to my "likes"or "collections" listed above. If you are sending a "touristy" card, and you have been there and can share something about the location it would be nice (I love the London Eye because...) Handmade cards are awesome!... If they are more than just a cut out from a box. I would be open to regular pen-palish postcard swaps.
Gift type swaps: I LOVE glitter glue, so smaller tubes would be nice since they seem to tend to dry out. Stickers or washi that look like they would fall under my likes. Vintage postcards - I especially like the linen ones, and the ones that are "Greetings from..." and the place (with pictures in the letters), lighthouses, or Halloween pc's. Unused postage is always nice! Fine point Sharpies (purples, blues, greens) since a lot of my pc's have glossy backs. Cobalt blue bottles. Cool nature finds like sand dollars, sea glass, small drift wood, cool rocks, stones with holes in them, crystals. Anything New Oleans/ New Orleans Saints. Starbucks gift cards. Interesting seeds or plants (or cuttings) for my yard or garden (bee friendly). Prayer cards (especially ones given at funerals - makes me sad to think they get thrown away), misc nativity pieces (I have adopted a few random Baby Jesus...es and Josephs, and a stray Mary from thrift/Goodwill, and make them one big happy extended family). Funky pins/buttons, pins or patches from lighthouses, National or state parks, states. Miniatures of any of the animals I have listed. Just some ideas, I am grateful for anything you see fit to send :)
