About Me

Hi! I'm Becki. I'm a Chicagoan who now lives in the Seattle area. I've been participating in swaps and happy mail projects for a few years, but never tried swap-bot... until now! =)

UPDATE 3/30/20 — I've moved back to Illinois! After about 3 years of living in Washington, I'm back to being in my home state.

I enjoy street art and graffiti, traveling, photography, collecting postcards, stickers, anything with stars on it, VHS and cassette tapes (and watching them), going to estate sales and flea markets, and spending time with dogs.

I love roller skates, gumball machines, cartoons, Lisa Frank, ice cream, zoos, cemeteries, Halloween (all year!), roller coasters, autumn, and lots of other random/wacky things.

I’m also completely obsessed with Animal Crossing (since 2005)—I've played it on pretty much every platform. If you play the Pocket Camp app, send me your ID and I'll add you as a friend! Or add me, mine is 1159 4676 795. I hope to one day get the Switch so I can play New Horizons! #goals

Favorite Music

Any 1980s pop culture references (music, television, etc.) makes me smile. Prince and George Michael are my favorites for music, and one-hit wonders are high up there, too. I mean, Vanity 6 and Terence Trent D'Arby both rank really high on my daily playlists. And if you just searched for either of them and found something familiar, that's awesome. =) If they're new to you...enjoy!

I love to receive music recommendations, or links on YouTube to something you've been watching/listening to. Lately I've been on an electronic and dance music kick. Oh, and Bollywood—can’t forget that!

More about me...

I have an insane sticker collection. I'm absolutely obsessed with stickers, and am not ashamed of it. ;) If you have any stickers you could share with any swap we do, that would ALWAYS be welcome! Oh, and I love washi!

I also collect wrapping paper. It’s weird, I know. I love it, though. =) I have a book with pieces in it, much like my sticker album or washi book. They’re all fun to add to and admire.

My favorite color is black, and rainbow (love rainbows). I also have an affinity for purples.

Some themes that I would love to receive cards/postcards/stickers of include:

  • Your city / country / town / province
  • Halloween-themed all year long (no spiders, though, please)
  • Animals (especially dogs, pigs and polar bears)
  • Desserts (doughnuts, cakes, chocolates, cookies)
  • Muppets or anything related to Jim Henson (personal hero of mine)
  • Vintage hotel/motel cards (or any vintage, unwritten postcards)
  • Adult-theme cards (something suggestive, naughty and fun)
  • Cartoons or illustrations (I love kawaii!)
  • Architecture and bridges
  • Moon and stars, landscape/nature

Sending a postcard in an envelope is absolutely OK, but don't feel you have to—either way is fine by me. I tend to do postcard swaps with a preference of blank and in an envelope, but written and stamped is a treasure in itself, too.

Also, love all things Lantern Press, LouPaper, and the Postcard Fair U.S. state map series. =) Non-U.S. favs are Ever&Ein and Shine (such cute artists).

New collection I'm starting!

I've started collecting playing cards (thanks to washi swaps) and I'd love to make a whole deck of mismatched cards! If you have any you can spare—with or without washi samples on it—I'd love to complete a Franken-deck.

Here's what I still need for my second full deck—woo, I’m on two now: (duplicates are totally OK by me):

  • Spades: 10, 7, 6, 4
  • Hearts: 10, 7, 6, 5, 3, 2
  • Diamonds: 10, 8, 7, 2, Ace
  • Clubs: 8, 7, 6, 4, 3, Ace

I've joined a few playing card swaps, but I wanted to mention it on my profile, too, in case it inspired anyone. =)

Favorite Television

I seldom watch TV, but when I get a chance to pop in a DVD or get into Netflix, I really enjoy these:

  • Breaking Bad (and Better Call Saul)
  • Chappelle Show
  • Rick & Morty
  • Disenchantment (and Futurama)
  • We Bare Bears
  • Fargo
  • Family Feud (and other gameshows)
  • Hoarders
  • RuPaul’s Drag Race

I'm sure there are many others, but those immediately came to mind.

Dislikes

Please, if you can, do NOT send anything with bugs on it. I have an immense fear of all insects and spiders.

So please no bugs (that includes butterflies, ladybugs, bees, and dragonflies).

It won't kill me or anything, it's just a strong dislike in terms of preferences.

Other items I'd rather NOT receive...

  • Anything with children or babies on it
  • Anything religious
  • Glittery things (so messy)
  • Bath bombs
  • Coffee-related items (I don't drink/like coffee)

If I do receive any of these, it's OK, I'll just pass them along in other swaps. Just wanted to add some, just in case.

If you only send me things from my dislike list (it's happened) then I will likely not rate with a heart.

Gift-giving swaps

With the hopes of doing more Type 3 swaps, here are some fun items I’d love to receive (note—I have no food allergies and an Under $10 Amazon Wishlist available, too):

  • Lotion (Gold Bond Ultimate Radiance; Aveeno; Nivea; anything from Bath & Body Works)
  • Candles (especially if they’re black or have a food smell)
  • Hair or face masks (my guilty pleasure splurge items, for sure)
  • Serious scrunchies (I have really long hair)
  • Hot chocolate (or ANY chocolate, for that matter)
  • Tea (herbal, please)
  • Snack foods (i.e. Oreos, Pringles, Goldfish crackers, Doritos, Hershey bars, Fig Newtons...pretty much any snack I will enjoy, or share with loved ones!)
  • Chapsticks, lip balms, salves, gloss
  • Squishy, fuzzy socks (it gets real cold by Lake Michigan in winter!)
  • Washi, stickers, postcards, stationary, memo sheets, unused postage—the usual happy mail awesomeness =)

No rating yet from me?

If I haven't given you a rating from a swap, it's because I haven't received anything. I always rate the day I receive something. Please feel free to message me. I'm still learning the process and would rather not rate than give someone a 1—we've all been there when something doesn't arrive in the mail. No fun!

Please don't hesitate to contact me, too, if I'm someone who has sent you something that you haven't received. I'm happy to send another card, postcard, etc.

I got your notecard today and the cute die cuts - thank you so much! I love black :-)

Thank you so very much for the RAK of wonderful goodies you surprised me with! Love the Greetings from Illinois, where I grew up and the cute Small World pc - one of my very favorite attractions, especially at Christmas time! That fragile orchid arrived with a few tiny crumbles but mostly intact and the color is just spectacular! What an amazing surprise! Sweet Paddington (easy to use a gluestick if needed on these classic treasures.) Such fun Barbies - oh the memories - for myself, my daughter and even a son who was convinced collecting Barbie Happy Meal toys would eventually pay his way through college - didn't work, but I have a box full to pass along to his daughter if they have one! Cute Kawai and such a colorful and fun envelope. Thanks for such a super treat!
