Hello!

My name is Lindsey, & I'm a college student living in lovely Western Michigan! The school I attend is less than five minutes from my house - so I commute back and forth daily to save lots of money.

As of right now I plan to apply to my college's social work program this fall, and if I'm accepted, that will be my official major/area of study!

I've been penpalling & writing letters for years, since I was maybe around twelve, my first penpal was a lovely gal from England, we shared a lot of the same music tastes!!

It has always brought such joy to my life to receive physical "snail mail!" Everything I get in the mail (especially through this site) is special to me and brings a smile to my face!

I hope that the mail I send out through this site will do the same for others!

IMPORTANT: if you happen to not receive a swap from me, PLEASE message me before rating and I will always be willing to resend! I will always send on time and make sure it has correct postage, but do understand that sometimes mail can get lost! Please let me know if there are any issues!!


I love...

  • stickers (flakes or sheets) & lately I have been loving patterned stickers, map/atlas stickers, and mail themed stickers.

  • flipbooks! I love receiving handmade flipbooks, even if they don't have a theme! Feel free to tuck whatever you want/think I would like into the pockets!

  • mini envelopes / glassine envelopes for pen pal goodies. I really love handmade envelopes! I am starting to get more into creating them myself as well! I use the We Are Memory Keepers envelope punch board.

  • old fashioned looking washi tape (old postage, music notes, old writing)

  • scraps of paper to use in my journals my favorites are anything old fashioned, kraft paper (brown), card-stock, floral, or light hues of color, espeically yellow and lavender. Please don't send super small pieces though!

  • die cuts (smaller shapes, flowers)

  • letter sets preferably lined, no need for matching envelopes though.

  • project life/journal pocket cards I really love the ones with quotes or motivational words.

  • POSTCARDS!! lately I’ve been really into new postcards, especially with art / botanical images! I also love almost all touristy postcards!

  • anything made by you! I love to see other people's creations! I will never rate down for crafty items handmade by you, everyone has their own talents and varying abilities! I hope you will do the same for me.

  • vintage postage stamps! if anyone is interested in swapping I have begun collecting quite a variety of vintage US postage stamps - just send me a message! My favorites are usually anything floral/social event themed.

honestly i am not very picky so i’ll probably love anything i receive, but if you’re looking for ideas this is a great place to start!!

Favorite music

I have a very diverse music taste - I like anything from pop to alternative. I do catch myself listening to more of the music that isn't from "my time" as I really like older 1980's bands that I've dug up from my dad's collection and fallen in love with myself!

  • Queen (Freddie Mercury has my heart)
  • Oasis
  • The Stone Roses
  • U2

For new music...

  • Harry Styles (Saw him on his first solo tour this past June!)
  • Louis Tomlinson
  • The 1975
  • Twenty One Pilots

Favorite Movies & TV

favorite movies:

  • pride and prejudice (2005 version)
  • pretty in pink
  • the wedding singer
  • sixteen candles
  • the sound of music
  • the fault in our stars
  • the notebook
  • me before you
  • dirty dancing
  • bohemian rhapsody
  • tommy boy
  • son-in-law
  • the king's speech

... can you tell that my favorite genre is romantic-comedy & I really love cheesy 1980's chick flicks??

favorite TV:

  • boy meets world
  • home improvement
  • awkward
  • saved by the bell
  • everybody loves raymond
  • parenthood
  • last man standing
  • seinfeld
  • jeopardy

My Crafty Wishlist

  • anything handmade by you

  • personalized things!! anything with my name on it!

  • inspiring quotes written on other mediums (pretty paper, journal cards, postcards)

  • bullet journal supplies (small stickers, floral washi)

  • personalized address labels

  • penpal items

Swap Info

I mark sent when I drop my swaps into the blue post office bins. Most often I do this before the pickup time so they will go out on that same day.

I will strive to always rate the same day I receive your package/PC. As long as you follow swap guidelines you will receive a 5. Even adding just a little bit of an extra touch will get you a heart! I’m very easy to impress so a little effort will go a long way. Please message me if you're running late on getting a swap sent out. As long as I hear from you beforehand, you will still receive a 5 if you followed swap guidelines!!

I will try my best to add personal touches to my swaps, whether it’s something mentioned from your profile or a common interest or a cute sticker or two on your PC. I’m thankful for anything I receive through swapbot.

I will always be open to adjust ratings if you message me and are willing to work things out. I know life gets in the way sometimes and no one is perfect, just please be open to talking about what happened and I will be happy to adjust my rating if I feel that is the right thing to do! This site is above everything else supposed to spread joy and kindness through the act of sending physical mail, I want my account (especially) to be treating people with the same kindness I would also like to receive!
