My name is Lindsey, & I'm from a very lovely city that is named after the Netherlands, but is in Michigan, USA. I love everything and anything that involves soft colors, pretty stationery, and cute stickers or stamps. I also love getting to know new people!! I'm very excited to get to know lots of new cool people from around the world! I've had pen pals before but never through a set up website like this - I cannot wait to see all it has in store for me!
I love keeping journals! At the moment, I have a bullet/art journal and its my favorite thing ever! I also like to make little cards and notes. I have a big collection of washi tape and stickers. I used to always keep sticker books as a kid, I never thought I would still have a love for them!!
I have a very diverse music taste - I like anything from pop to alternative. I really like older 80's bands as well that I've dug up from my dad's collection. U2, The Killers, Oasis are just a few of the older bands I like. For new music, I adore Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. I also listen a lil bit to The 1975 and other british bands, I guess it's the accent I don't really know hah.
I really like having deep conversations and getting to know people through their life stories or things they're really passionate about! I love the look on someones face when you get them talking about their favorite band, favorite book or favorite person in their life!!
My favorite movies of all time are Pride and Prejudice (2005 version), Pretty in Pink, The Kings Speech, The Wedding Singer, and Love, Simon. If you have any favorites in common with me let me know! I would love to talk about them with you. 80’s chick flicks are so dear to my heart. I wish I lived in that era! such a great time for music, movies, and clothing.
I’ve only been using swapbot for a very short time & I already adore it!
i’ve just graduated from high school this past year, and i’m very excited to attend a liberal arts university in my hometown. i plan to study psychology! the brain in general have always really interested me so I cannot wait to dive deeper into the field in my years at college. i work at the library on campus so i enjoy being organized! sometimes!!
stickers of any kind!! but i really enjoy stickers with symbols like hearts or shapes that i can use in my bullet journal, also stickers with cute sayings and pastel colors, flowers
old fashioned looking washi tape (old postage, music notes, old writing)
scraps of paper to use in journaling (old fashioned, craft paper, cardstock, floral, pastel)
die cuts (smaller shapes, flowers)
letter sets (floral)
i love flowers (if you couldn’t tell) and i also love pastel colors and soft colors!
i love learning about other cultures and areas around the world, and also love seeing pictures/polaroids from other countries/states.
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!!
I will get all my swaps sent out on time, I am a beginner on swap bot, so please don’t hesitate to be honest with me if you dislike something or give me tips on how to be a better swapper! I will rate the 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. 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.
