About Me

Hello my name is Bell. Im 38 years young. I was just recently diagnosed with MS so that being said my nerves in my body hate me. I break out in hives almost every night head to toe and average 2-3 seizures a week. I just moved from Florida to Illinois, so I'm a little home sick. I have never lived in an apartment before so I am just kind of getting used to everyone else noises and smells lol. I am a single mom to 3 wonderful kids 19,18, and 16. I have 2 cats who are both 2 years old and female. I also have a mouse that super cute! So my family is very crazy all the time. I work at the U of I as a ceramics instructor (my dream job) .

my favorites

my favorite things: I have lots of favorite things. I have a huge collection of anime and comic books. Even though my kids are older I still like to read children's books. My favorite holidays are Christmas and Halloween. I tend to out do myself when it comes to Halloween I start decorating in September. We do not attend a church but we are a christian family (so religious thing are fine)! i enjoy teas and coffee of all kinds. I am really into mermaids (^o^)/ and anything sea creatures. I also love art work from the 20's and 30's . My boys and me also collects coins from all over the world. Aquaman is my favorite comic and totally enjoyed watching Jason Momoa play him at the movies lol .

Favorite Music

my favorite group is Studio Killers. I love watching their videos and following "cherry". I also like Melanie Martinez and her album Cry Baby.

Books and Movies

Books and reading are not one of my favorite things to do. I do like reading articles form magazines. I also enjoy reading about art history. I don't really consider graphic novels and comic books "reading", I do love them both very much. I compare them more to eye candy that takes you away to a different world. Okay movie time !!! I watch a lot of YouTube videos on a lot of different things, mainly Japan. I really would like to travel there one day. i also enjoy watching Game of Thrones. I enjoy watching Netflix, Love, Death + Robots, Glow, Umbrella Academy, ect....

postcards

ok since I have been doing more swaps I figured I might want to expand my page a bit. POSTCARDS: I really like getting cat postcards, sea creatures, mermaids, Fairies, gnomes, woodland animals, super heroes (DC and Marvel) anime, unusual or oddity, I am fine with vulgar or nudity, Halloween, anything vintage, fairy tales, Star wars ( I love yoda) I don't really like getting state or recipe cards. Since I have been doing more postcard swaps I figured I should include that I prefer my pc dressed/ un-nude. npcw I now is coming up and I would really like to be a part of. Now that being said if you are sending me a postcard or postcards please please please put them or it in an envelope. I cant tell you how many times I have had awesome postcards get damaged (sad face) Please do write on them I really enjoy reading about every ones lives. I actually have a wall by my desk that I want to cover in my postcards

Stationery & cards

I love getting new stationery of any kind. I love kawaii envelopes and post its . I also love desk junk. My desk at home is full of fun kawaii gadgets and my department desk is full of kitty cats and unicorns. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't send any note cards my mom gave me 2 whole box right before I moved so I am totally good lol. Even if I mailed a note a day I think I would have enough for 3 or 4 years. My moms friend used to work for Hallmark and when they get there new waves they throw the old ones away :(

Foods and tea

foods: I love trying new things from all over the world and I really enjoy candy of all kinds just not chocolate. Actually chocolate is the one and only thing edible wise I am ALLERGIC to (sad face). I enjoy gummies so very much! There are a few things I would love to try form other countries but can't find them her locally so if you are feeling generous and want to send something. I am looking for Japanese candy diy drink kits, J-cola (cherry blossom), bread in a can, Turkish delight, marzipan, any dagashiya, French candy creams. Teas: I am a huge tea drinker my new favorite is apple rose-hip. I have an entire 2 cabinets in my kitchen full of tea and tea stuff. I am more partial to fruit teas and I love matcha of any kind !!

update on my life

Ok my life has been under going a few heavy changes so please bare with me. I would just like to note that I do send swaps out either in the morning before work or sometimes I will mail them at night.If you don't receive something from me please please please just send me a message I will gladly resend. Things get lost in the mail all the time. Ok down to business cause I just need to vent a bit and were else better to do it than swapbot right! I am in the process of trying to switch my daughters group home some place a bit closer than were she is currently so I can better manage her care. At the same time I am also trying to find a new personal support worker to help my sister while I am at work. Lastly I just started a second job at night I am mega tired. I have not cashiered in a long time so being on my feet in one place for 5 hours kind of sucks.

coins & or paper monies

since I have been dabbling a bit in coin/banknote/paper monies I figured why not add something about that. So here it goes.... I collect all kinds of different coins with my 2 boys now yeah!! We started off by collecting pennies (US&Canada) and expanded to Buffalo nickles(US),Mercury dines(US) ect.... I always love getting Indian head pennies any time and half dollars. ohh there are 2 US coins that we do not have is the Susan B. Anthony dollar coin and 1878-1904 Morgan Silver Dollars. Other counties, ect: I would be just as happy with a one cent coin as I would with any other coin from your country. I value pennies so very much, I know many countries don't have pennies. I am hoping by the end of this year I will have money from each country that's our family goal !!!!

V.I.P News

I just wanted everyone I swap with to be informed when I was at the post office I was told due to the amount of mail going out and coming in I and you may see delays. I haven't nor will I ever flake on anyone. If I can't mail your package out for any reason I will message you. If you don't get something from me please let me know I will gladly resend. This is a pretty big week here in Urbana Illinois due to graduations back to back for U of I, High school, Middle school, and Mothers Day. I am a very down to earth person just talk to me. Just one more thing. I am having my mail held for me at the post office due to volume of mail I am getting. My mail box is to small lol . So if you have not received an instant rating please be patient with me. I will be checking it periodically and try to get your rating done as fast as possible. Thank you for your understanding
