About Me

Hello! I'm a woman living in the US working as a financial accountant by day and a snail mailer at night! I prefer doing INTERNATIONAL swaps because I like discovering interesting stationeries from other countries!! So, if you are from a foreign country, I would love to receive some stationery that you can only find locally! :)

I enjoy spending time with my husband and my kids (2 sons and 1 daughter)! My family and I like to spend time with our dog, our puppy is starting to get old (noooo). During my downtime on the weekends, I like to papercraft and journal early in the morning with my coffee. In my journal, I do mostly collaging with stickers, rubber stamps, washi tapes, and journaling cards. My journal entries consist of recipes I want to try, list journaling prompts, and just my inner thoughts and life in general.

I found swapbot on accident! I did quite a bit of sticker swaps on a Facebook group, and swapbot was briefly mentioned. I was addicted to sending and receiving happy mail, but I wanted more than just receiving stickers. I'm very glad I found this site because I have a tendency to hoard stationery supplies and now it is forcing me to share my stationery goodies!

I used to live in Hawaii and I had access to unlimited Japanese stationery, but I've moved to a different state and I miss it so much.. I LOVE Japanese, Korean and Taiwan stationery!!

I LOVE STICKERS!! I have a stash in a Size 9 Nike shoe box. I'm an avid sticker collector :). I would like to share my sticker collection as well as do some mail art with my rubber stamp and washi tape collection.

MY FAVORITE AESTHETICS/THEMES- botanical illustrations/floral/mushrooms/sakura, woodland theme (birds/fall/autumn/nature/bees/owl/🍄/fox), Valentine’s/XOXO/hearts, under the sea/beach/mermaids/nautical theme, kawaii (the ones with the little cute eyes haha), constellation/celestial (stars, planets, galaxy), desserts/sweets/pastries/baking/kitchen, Hawaiian Theme (hibiscus, flamingo, pineapple, seashell, coconut, toucon, hula girl, volcano etc.), winter theme (ie snowflakes, snow, hot chocolate, fireplace, reindeer, sweaters, scarf) NOT Christmas

To date, I’VE SENT HAPPY MAIL to Australia, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Slovenia, Sweden, Taiwan, Ukraine, and United Kingdom. I hope to add more to this list YAY!

I’ve received INTERNATIONAL MAIL from Australia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, and United Kingdom. :)

If at anytime, you do not receive my swap, please please message me! I am happy to resend another. I am never late with swaps and am on time with meeting swap deadlines. If their are multiple swap partners for a swap, I mail altogether at the Post Office. I do read all my swap partners profile and tailor accordingly (even sender’s choice swap) because I want to brighten everyone's day with happy mail!

Comment: Holiday greetings, Thank you for all your wonderful answers. I so enjoyed reading all of them. Have an awesome holiday season.🌲
Comment: Thanks. Your list was pretty different from mine, mostly because of our temperatures here in the South versus yours in WI. Made for interesting reading. Just found the 14!! Believe it or not I counted all the stickers front & back looking for a hidden 14 and there it was written in red. Thanks!!
Response: Looks like you missed the #14 oh well ;). Hehe, I'm glad you found it! I thought that was pretty interesting!
