About Me

Reached 100 hearts on Feb. 25. 2017!

100 Completed swaps on March. 18!

Hello there! My name is Samantha. Or, Sammy, works. I live in a small town and our little post office here can barely fit five people inside. Often we get travelers who like to take pictures next to the PO. It's so funny!

I have three dogs: Bella (dachshund lab mix)-medium sized dog; River (american staffordshire bully breed mix)-she's a big dog; and Sadie (pomeranian poodle pug mix LOL)-kind of a small/medium dog- they are not related, and all rescues and adopted), two rats (Vadalia and Aurora, sisters), and two hamsters (Lark (child) Lorlei (mother)). I just adore animals.

I am a part of the LGBT+ community, so if you are too mention it if you would like!

I suffer from bipolar disorder type one, ADD, an eating disorder, and anxiety. Getting mail calms and lifts my spirit. I feel a lot better when I can fill someone's mailbox and see the effort someone did to get the same reaction. I feel blessed when I can see mail in my box.

I have an obsession with Germany. It's such a lovely country. I am also learning the language. I plan to visit there later in life.

I enjoy learning about psychology so psychology books are also greatly appreciated. (Used book swaps.)

I love collecting things and finding new things to collect. Currently I am collecting: all stamps, kawaii goodies, Japanese ephemera, German ephemera, ephemera of any kind, journals with anything in it (art, junk, notes), used (any) holiday cards, postcards, stickers, wrappers of foreign foods/candies, foreign language book pages, anime anything. If you think there is a collection I'd like to start, mention it! I'm always on the lookout!

I mark sent AFTER the item is physically dropped into a mail bin at my PO or around town.


What I Like (i'll try and give many options because I know the stomach turning, anxiety-causing feeling when someone lists only two things!):

anything LGBTQIA+ related

clippings from a newspaper/magazine;

blind bags;

recipes;

lists;

kawaii flakes & such: goth, food, animals, pastel and dark

sugar skulls;

lisa frank stickers;

top ten lists;

kawaii letter sets (i collect) (Q-Lia is my absolute favorite)

earrings: i wear captive beads (16g, 7/16; helix) and mostly minimalist style studs (20/22g; lobes)

greeting cards (not notecards though):

mini notecards with envelopes;

kinder + dove + lindt chocolate (these are the best ones out there!);

unused postcards;

vintage used postcards;

items that are known to be from your country or state;

airmail items;

puzzles (jigsaw puzzles and puzzles to solve);

favorite line from a good book;

I have and enjoy a lot of motel postcards (anywhere) and old German church postcards.

chewing gum, esp. from other countries;

maps;

newspapers;

YA books;

magazines;

manga;

anything, and I mean anything with foreign languages on it. (E.G.: a note written by a stranger you found on the ground in Paris.)

antique menu/recipe books and such items;

novelty T-shirts from antique stores (2XL);

zines;

kawaii stationery, honestly kawaii anything;

used stamps;

ephemera!! (esp. vintage, i love all kinds though.)

anything animal related;

audrey hepburn items (like magazines and articles and such)

airplane anything;

flavorful iced tea packets;

bubble/puffy stickers;

anything i can pamper myself with (i.e.: face masks, hair masks);

real pressed flowers;

teas-i tend to lean towards more stronger fruity flavors;

bookmarks;

aromatherapy anything-such as infused mittens, socks, etc. (please make sure they are big enough, size L-XL mittens; and size 13 in women's for socks)

rubber bracelets from clubs, rallies and such (don't worry about size, these always fit just fine on my wrist)

unique card games;

alice in wonderland items;

quality stationery;

foreign language items;

kawaii items (like plushies);

foreign newspapers (especially Asian, German, and Turkish);

your used journals (notes, altered, junk, anything);

Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/people/Sadie2390/favorites?ref=prfaveitemsmore

Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/3OAKPVFG100QI/ref=navwishlistlists_1

For my doggies: chews, plush toys, squeakies, small ropes; doggy recipe book (in the summer time I make all their food from scratch)

For my small animals (rats and hamsters): Wild Harvest treats (can be found at walmarts), tiny chews

TV Shows: The 100, American Horror Story, Bates Motel, How I Met Your Mother, Orange Is The New Black, Young & Hungry, Shameless, The Middle, House M.D., Criminal Minds, Scream, The Fosters, Life In Pieces, Last Man Standing.

I like comedies, action, and some romance. I do not like the sappy comedies or romance. Things like super heroes do not interest me.

Movies: What's Eating Gilbert Grape, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, Minions, Finding Nemo/Finding Dory, The Visit, Crybaby-honestly any Johnny Depp movie, Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass, Run To Me, Look Who's Back (Er ist Wieder Da), Hush, Krampus, 10 Things I Hate About You, A Christmas Horror Story, Christmas With the Kranks, The Boy, Get Out

I like comedy, oldies, foreign, horror. I do not like most romance like The Longest Ride, or actions like TMNT or Sci-Fi like Star Wars.

Favorite Bands: Twenty One Pilots, Panic! At The Disco, Queen, Hollywood Vampires, Saint Motel

Regarding Postcards

Vintage Greetings From, Alice In Wonderland, movie posters, Audrey Hepburn, animal related, antique (made before 1945 please, check out this handy website: http://postcardvalues.com/postcardage.html...basically linen era and before), busy person's correspondence!, motels and hotels (I collect these), old German churches, holiday's (esp. antique)

Allergens, Dislikes, and No No

Coffee. Hershey's chocolate.

Chocolate in June-August.

Religion: I have been more accepting of this. Just do not try to convert me to your religion as I do not appreciate this at all.

Die cuts: I have no use for these. If a swap says you can send these I will probably just pass them along. I'm not a fan of fabric pieces either- again I have no use for them. Though if I am in a journal swap at the time, then I use these in them!!

Books: adult romance, e-books (such as sending the link for a book swap) ATTN: people have been missing the dislike tab at the top of this and mistaking that I like e-books. I don't care for them!.

Colors: brown, camo, orange

Stickers: kiddie/reward stickers, large (half a page or bigger) stickers, small plain heart stickers,

Cars (such as on PCs): sports and muscle autos.

Teas: I'm not much of a fan for teas like green, energy plain black flavors, or simple light flavors. (I have a hard time tasting things, even with food. Such as meat seasoning, most of the time I won't taste it after it's cooked.) The stronger the scent and flavor the better!

Feathers: none, please, extremely allergic!

Allergies: anything that could have pollens, any cat hair strands (highly allergic to cats).

People who don't rate. Attention seekers. Braggy people.

Private Swap

Things I'm looking for:

kawaii stationery, postcards (blank in an envelope or written on-I prefer blank for some though), candy (USA and Czechia only), plant seeds (USA only), tea (USA), movie night packages (USA), & recipe trades.

Beauty Swaps

I hardly ever, if once every other year, wear makeup. I love EOS lib balm, and fruity chap sticks. I like skin masks. Cucumber and aloe are my favorite ingredients in facial masks. I have combination skin and use sensitive stuff.

Comment: I think sepia tones count as black and white...at least they do in my book! I've never ordered anything from Ali express. I've always wondered how reliable it is. I've been burned on international online ordering. Thank you for the card!
Response: Aliexpress is pretty reliable. I've ordered 30+ things all from different people and so far no problems. :) You just have to watch feedback and the things in the title aren't *always* reliable.
