Hello! I'm a woman living in the US working as a financial accountant by day and a snail mailer at night! 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 journal early in the morning with my coffee. I do junk journals where I do mostly collaging with stickers, rubber stamps, washi tapes, paper scraps and ephemera. My journal entries mostly consist of recipes I want to try and just my inner thoughts and life in general.
Why I joined swapbot: With the whole COVID-19 fiasco, I needed to find a new activity and with some googling I stumbled upon this site! I wanted my mailbox filled with happy mail, now I'm finding myself buying more postal stamps than ever lol. Also, I have a tendency to hoard stationery supplies haha so I joined this site as a way to force 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 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/floral, woodland theme (birds/fall/autumn/nature/bees/owl//fox), Valentineās/hearts, under the sea/beach/mermaids/nautical theme, kawaii (the ones with the little cute eyes haha), constellation (stars, planets, galaxy), desserts/sweets/pastries, kawaii halloween, baking/kitchen, Hawaiian Theme (hibiscus, flamingo, pineapple, seashell, coconut, toucon, hula girl, volcano etc.), musical (ie music notes, piano, rock n roll etc)
Looking forward to receiving and sending happy mail. :) And just a fair warning, I tend to sticker bomb/decorate my envelopes to my swap partners haha! My daughter also helps me decorate these envelopes too.

If at anytime, you do not receive my swaps, please please message me! I am happy to resend another. I am never late with my 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 senderās choice swap) because I want to brighten everyone's day with happy mail!
