About Me

Last year, I fell behind on a lot of swaps for various reasons and messed up pretty badly on a couple of swaps. I decided to take a break from swap-bot until I was in a better place and life wasn't so stressful. I've missed swap-bot so much! I have a few snail mail friends who I enjoy writing to, but I've missed the randomness of swap-bot. Life is treating me quite kindly at the moment and so I've decided to return.

In type 2 and 3 swaps: If you don't receive anything from me within a reasonable amount of time, please get in touch with me and let me know. I always purchase proof of posting for international swaps.

If you haven't received a rating from me, don't hesitate to send me a message and remind me. In email swaps, I tend to get confused with rating as there are often so many partners!

Some shameless self promotion: I've just released an EP called Here We Are, which you can download on band camp https://elliefountain.bandcamp.com

I'm a 22 year old music student. I love meeting new people and learning new things. I have a strong desire to travel. I went to Bali in 2015 and absolutely loved it. I'd love to travel more of Asia, particularly Vietnam, Cambodia and Japan. However, I have plans to go to Iceland in the next couple of years and would like to explore Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

Favorite Books

I love reading. If anyone has any book recommendations, they'd be very welcome. My favourite authors are Jodi Picoult, Jojo Moyes and David Levithan. Some of my favourite books are:

  • The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult
  • Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
  • The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender
  • The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan
  • One Day by David Nicholls

Favorite Movies

Boyhood, Juno, Never Let Me Go, The Spectacular Now, The Place Promised In Our Early Days, 10 Things I Hate About You, Lost in Translation, A Letter to Momo, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, Children Who Chase Lost Voices, When Harry Met Sally, Spirited Away, Donnie Darko, Mulan, 500 Days of Summer, Blue Valentine.

Favourite TV shows: New Girl, Once Upon A Time, My Little Monster, Grey's Anatomy, Orange is the New Black, One Tree Hill, Suits.

Favorite Music

I love a lot of different music and love music swaps. Some of my favourite artists are...

Bon Iver, Patrick Watson, The Smiths, Keaton Henson, Mothers, Sharon Van Etten, The Kinks, Field Division, The Cure, Ludovico Einaudi, Lindisfarne, Sóley, Marika Hackman, Lucy Rose, William Fitzsimmons, Angel Olsen, Phantogram, Fleetwood Mac, salvia palth, Bombay Bicycle Club, Perfume Genius.

I collect postcards, my preferred postcards are:

Any used postcards (I'm so nosey and love reading the messages on the back)

Vegetarian recipes







Woodland creatures (photos and drawings) - especially foxes and squirrels

Elephants (photos and drawings)

Owls (photos and drawings)



I really don't like anything tacky. No "wish you were here", unless it's a vintage postcard. And no multi view tourist postcards.


I am a vegetarian, so please don't send me anything with meat or gelatine in. I'm going vegan, so non-dairy/egg products would be great, but I won't get mad if I'm sent dairy or egg products. I understand that vegan food can be super expensive.

I like pretty much every food. The only foods I don't really like are liquorice, carrots, olives, tea and cinnamon.

Please do not send me

Tea (unless herbal)

Lavender or geranium scents



Hello Kitty

Anything offensive

Anything violent

Anything tacky
