About Me

If I haven't rated you yet, it's because I haven't received anything. Baltimore apparently has one of the largest mail backups in the country, and my mail route keeps getting new carriers. That means I tend to get mail delivered in a bulk roughly once a week, notably longer than it should have taken. I do my best to register received swaps within a day or less of getting them. You can still feel free to send me a message about it, if you think it's taking way too long, though!

I'm mostly here for snail mail. I love to send and receive postcards, letters, holiday cards, greeting cards, etc. I'm not picky about what's on the card, but I would really like to receive an actual message from you on the card/in the letter. Tell me about the last great book you read, what your hobbies are, a favorite quote, what you wanted to be when you were a child...anything, really! I just want to make connections with others.

I like tea, cats, video and tabletop games, warm weather, romance, colored pens, makeup, dark beer, cephalopods, stickers and corvids. As a child, I wanted to be an astronaut when I grew up. I still do, really. I'm a big nerd--I love video games, science fiction and fantasy, tabletop games and the like. I even founded a company with my friend to hire ourselves out as game masters!

I love stickers, especially ones with plants and flowers, mushrooms, tea, celestial/space-themed (although not so much zodiac stuff) and any of my likes below. I like washi tape, pins, lovely scraps of paper (including lovely packaging or paper bags from stores.) I do a little embroidery, and I love baking.


Favorites:

  • Colors: Green and purple
  • Holidays: Thanksgiving and Christmas
  • Places to visit: Aquariums, new-to-me-restaurants, gardens and botanical centers
  • Animals: Cats, birds (all kinds, especially the weird ones and corvids), red pandas
  • Teas: Flavored black varieties, fruity herbals, chais with extra flavors
  • Flavors/Scents: Rose, sandalwood, cedar, pipe smoke, vanilla

I've listed some preferences for swaps below, but please don't stress about it. The community here is very into lots of rules and I'm just not about that. I'm here to enjoy the swapping, not get stressed about someone meeting my exact preferences without really knowing me. If you send something I'm not wild about it, I will simply pass it on to someone else and be glad to have the chance to do so!

No Thank You:

  • pink
  • anything scented of lavender (I'm allergic)
  • anything religious
  • beads/jewelry making stuff
  • letter stickers (the kind you use to spell things)
  • things for children and teachers/elementary school theme
  • butterflies
  • anything even vaguely spicy
  • Used/cancelled stamps
  • Disney
  • hearts (unless it's Valentine's Day)
  • Postcards (I have a MASSIVE backlog I am trying to use up!)
  • Cactuses and succulents

Yes Please:

  • stickers
  • washi tape
  • pins/buttons
  • tea (but not green tea, please!)
  • cats
  • space
  • flowers/botanicals
  • memes
  • mushrooms
  • patterned paper
  • cephalopods
  • maps (any and all kinds and sizes)
  • freebie/advertising magnets
  • cute/patterned/shaped sticky notes and memo pads
  • Unusual embroidery floss (I found some that have a color gradient recently, as an example. Basically, anything other than the standard single color six-string type.)
  • Animal Crossing
  • birds, especially corvids (ravens, crows, magpies, etc.)
  • I would LOVE to receive label stickers. I use them to write quotes in my journal, so medium or larger and no words on them with lots of space to write
