About me:

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 - it's a good thing for me to be close to home and my family, so I'm so happy to attend the school I do!

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!!

Crafty items I LOVE:

  • stickers (flakes or sheets) & lately I have been loving patterned stickers, map/atlas stickers, and air- 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!

  • mailing-size envelopes / mini 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 Iโ€™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.

more ideas for you:

  • 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

Movies & TV I LOVE:

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

Music I LOVE:

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

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! Iโ€™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 itโ€™s something mentioned from your profile or a common interest or a cute sticker or two on your PC. Iโ€™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!

Comment: I envy you - you get to see the leaves change color in the Fall. In Ohio where I grew up it was like that, so beautiful. But here in Texas it is not the same. Most trees are still green, or dropping dead, brown leaves because it's so HOT! But later in the season we will often see the foliage change. More subtle, but still lovely. Thanks for the PC!
Response: So glad you enjoyed the PC! I hope youโ€™ll get to see a bit of fall color by you this season. Thanks for joining my swap!!
Comment: Beautiful cards, thank you for this selection.
Comment: I love your envie and the goodies you enclosed. Thanks so much.
Response: Iโ€™m very happy that you liked it. Thanks so much for the heart!!
Comment: What a beautiful bridge! I have not been to the UK but I love bridges. The Tower Bridge is often confused with The London Bridge but the Tower is prettier! Thanks for the nice choice. = )
Response: So glad that you enjoyed the PC! Thanks for the heart!!
Comment: Very nice card, thank you very much. My daughter may have been there, will show the Anaheim Arena card to her.
Response: I'm so glad that you liked the Anaheim postcard! It seems like such a cool spot to visit. Thanks for the heart, it's much appreciated!
Comment: So much fun stuff! Thanks for doing this one last swap with me before your school started. I would like to try penpaling with you :) I think we have a lot in common.
Response: Hi! I'm so glad that you enjoyed the items I sent you!! Would love to be penpals - if you're up for it feel free to send me a private message, that way we can see what we'd like to do! I can't wait to be able to send more to you!!!

Many thanks for the CPG Pick 2 Tag. I just love the Anderson Design city cards - all new to me, as i only have some of their national park series and I appreciate the postage stamps, even an extra! Very classy swap tag and pretty washi on the envelope, too.
