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.

Dogs and puppies are by far my favorite thing in the world.

I love roller skates, gum ball machines, cartoons, Lisa Frank, ice cream, zoos, cemeteries, Halloween, roller coasters, 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. =)

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 already have (though duplicates are totally OK by me):

  • Spades: Ace, King, 10, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3
  • Diamonds: Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, 8, 7, 6, 2
  • Hearts: King, Queen, Jack, 9, 4
  • Clubs: Queen, Jack, 10, 6, 4

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


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)
  • 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.

Please note...

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/Czech 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!

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.

Comment: I've only been to WA once. It looks a lot like it does here but there is no Kudzu there, thank goodness. Google evil Kudzu if you don't know what it is. It grows on EVERYTHING! I will definitely check out this doughnut shop if I'm ever back in the area!

Comment: Hi Becki - Thank you for a batch of really nice PCs! All new ones for me. Paria Canyon in AZ looks so beautiful. Hope you're well.
Comment: Wow, Becki, this was an envelope of Happy Mail for sure😃‼️ I like how you decorated the envelope pinkly, the tiny make-up stickers, beautiful big washi bird sticker, corner stickers, Rt 66 postcards (wasn't that an amazing road trip?), the papers with words, and those "cheesy" note papers are so cute. You are a super swapper!! Thank you so much!!

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!
