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, going to estate sales, and spending time with dogs.
Dogs and puppies are by far my favorite thing in the world.
I also collect wrapping paper. It’s weird, I know. I love it, though. =) I have a book with pieces in it, much like a sticker album or my washi book. They’re all fun to add to and admire.
I’m also completely obsessed with Animal Crossing (since 2005) -- I've played it on pretty much everything. If you play the Pocket Camp app, send me your ID and I'll add you as a friend!
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.
Also, 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!
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:
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.
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. So please don't feel bad if there's a little one that you didn't notice until you sent. =)
Other items I'd rather not receive...
I do not spell my name with a Y. About half of all swaps I've received from this site, so far, people spell my first name wrong. Which is crazy considering the super Polish last name I have that everyone seems to get right. ;) But, I will likely not give you a heart rating if my first name is not spelled right. It just hurts my feelings. The crazy last name I'd understand. =) Just please double check before mailing. Thank you!
[Of note, something I don’t think people consider: Personally, it irritates me when a swap host sends mass emails to everyone who signed up for their swap. I will always immediately drop from the swap because that is so inappropriate—I didn’t sign up so you could email me and blast my email address to dozens of other people’s inbox.]
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.
