About me

My name is Lindsey (pronouns are she/her), I'm 22 years old!

  • I'm studying to become a social worker, I am currently attending university to obtain my masters of social work (MSW) degree. I love talking about anything & everything social work - so feel free to ask questions or talk about things related to social work with me.

  • I've been sending happy mail via swap-bot for over four years now. It brings me lots of joy to receive mail from friends across the country and the world!

"It is very heartening to know that even when we get it wrong (i.e. being human) we can make it right with authenticity and kindness" - Irvin D. Yalom

Fun facts:

  • I’ve been getting into crochet a bit lately, I’m still in the very beginner stages though.

  • I love caring for house plants! I am nowhere near an expert, I would say that I am still in the newbie category when it comes to caring for plants. I have come to own quite the collection though, especially throughout this year.

  • I love writing to penpals, check out my Instagram (linked above) if you'd like to see some of the mail-art I create.

  • I love attending concerts & adore live music, the first show I ever attended was when I was only thirteen, it started a trend.

  • During my undergrad, I worked on campus at the library I worked there all 4 years (plus most summers in between) and I LOVED it! Libraries will always hold a special place in my heart.


Favorite movies & TV shows:

  • Pride and Prejudice (2005 version)
  • The Shawshank Redemption
  • The Kings Speech
  • The Wedding Singer
  • Love, Rosie
  • Seinfeld (my #1 show always!)
  • Everybody Loves Raymond
  • Home Improvement
  • Heartstopper (on netflix)

Likes:

Some of my favorite themes include:

  • abstract, colorful
  • mid century & retro
  • whimsical or unique
  • different shades of the same color
  • nature & botanical
  • historical & geographical

Some of my favorite things to receive in swaps/happy mail are:

    • whimsical or unique
    • medium & larger size alphabet
    • floral, botanical, woodland/nature themed
    • geometric, shapes, abstract, or patterns
    • hearts & stars
    • circles, especially love the kind with patterns
    • labels to use on outgoing mail (especially love the die-cut ones with unique edges!)

  • flipbooks and paper pockets: I love receiving handmade flipbooks & other similar crafty items, even if they don't have a theme! Feel free to tuck whatever you want or think I would like into the pockets!

  • handmade envies (mailable size!)


  • Some of my favorite types of postcards:

    • botanical/floral/nature scenes

  • personalized return address labels (loving the smaller & tiny ones at the moment!)

  • swap info cards to send along in my swap-bot envelopes

  • art prints or illustrations (to hang on my bedroom walls!)

  • art made by you! I especially love collage pieces, handmade cards, sticker sheets, & memo sheets/sticky notes.

Dislikes:

​​These are some types of items that I would rather not receive:

  • teacher/reward type/cheap stickers
  • tiny plain paper bits
  • horror/gory/gross anything
  • strong smells/smoke smells
  • glitter/confetti in envelopes
  • political-themed items
  • stained or dirty items
  • prejudiced/discriminatory anything

Other info:

  • 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 swap-bot.

  • I mark sent after I drop mail into the big blue postal boxes or put it in my mailbox in the morning.

  • If you happen to not receive a swap from me, be sure to message me and I will always be willing to resend!

  • I always send on time and make sure it has correct postage, but please understand that sometimes mail can get lost!

  • Be sure to let me know if there are any issues, and I will work hard to resolve them. I hope you'll do the same for me.

  • I will always be open to adjusting 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!

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile! ☺

Response: I hope you liked this postcard! Just wanted to respond to say I am sorry since I think I accidentally put a few halloween themed stickers on the side by my message. I see in your profile now that you don't like halloween themed things - that was a mistake on my part so I apologize. Thank you for the 5 rating though, and take care!
