About Me

I'm taking the summer off but will check in here every few days and be back ready to swap again this fall!

Hello from Mississippi! My name is Beth! I am so appreciative of those swappers who take the time to send me happy mail ! Every bit of mail makes me feel special because someone went to the trouble just for me! :) Thank you all!

Things I love to do : I enjoy drawing, painting, and photography, gardening, driving/ sightseeing, long walks, writing stories and poems.

I'm in love with nature and all animals. I even love most insects and creepy crawlies!

I have one ancient darling Chihuahua and one sweetheart pit bull, and several precious kitties. I ADORE cats but am really allergic and have to take a lot of meds to have them. Due to the allergies, my feline kids aren't allowed in my bedroom or craft room so your swaps should be safe from cat hair. =D

I've been married to my best friend for 29 years and am the mom of 3 adult children and also work full time as office manager at our manufacturing company. I live on a used-to-be farm in a small town in Mississippi. I have also lived in Alaska, Missouri, Kansas, and Louisiana and have visited 20 states and parts of Canada. Hopefully that list will continue to grow!

About swaps

If I don't receive a rating by you in a reasonable time, I'll contact you to make sure you've received your swap. I never flake on any swap so if you don't get mail from me, something has happened in transit and I would appreciate the chance to resend. I rate swaps received as I open them to make sure no one is missed. I will never give a rating of 1 without first trying to resolve the swap! Please note that I mark sent when my swap gets dropped in the box at the post office. Mail dropped off in the evenings will be postmarked the next day, or on the following Monday if it's dropped into the box on Saturday evening or Sunday.

I like these!

I rate on the swap itself and am generous with hearts- but in case you just want to send something else or it's a profile based swap, here's some info about things I like.

  • a note about your day/ week/ where you live, etc.

  • tell me about your garden or pets!

  • a poem

  • pen or marker

  • foreign coins

  • miscellaneous regular size playing cards, any theme (Even one card I can add to the collection makes me happy!)

  • state magnets

  • cute keychains or key covers

  • anything kawaii

  • anything with pumpkins or snowmen on it

  • amigurumis or crochet patterns for cute ones

  • painted or drawn ATCs

  • Scraps of paper- I have BOXES of scraps

  • Label bags, decos, x-slips, fbs

  • Recipes unless it's a great cookie recipe or I join a specific recipe swap =)

  • religious items/ crosses, but I'm ok with receiving religious holiday cards

  • teacher reward, wedding/ baby/ graduation stickers

  • stick on tattoos

  • tea (I'm very allergic!)

  • anything with cigarette smell

  • lotions or perfume (allergies again)

  • any kind of food/ candy

  • stickers unless they're super nice/ unique or I'm in a sticker swap ( I DO love kawaii sticker flakes!)

I never played video games or anything when I was a child but I'm obsessed with Pokemon Go! I LOVE it!


I prefer postcards sent blank, in an envelope, to add to my collection. But if the swap is for naked, then I’m happy for those, too.

Some favorite subjects are:
* animals- any!
* anything autumn
* tourist
* landmarks
* landscapes
* USA states
* the ocean
* insects
* birds
* Disney
* Jetoy
* fantasy
* illustrations
* any of my favorite characters listed
* any holiday, especially Halloween
* art (not crazy about portraits)
* flowers/ gardens
* barns
* covered bridges
* mailboxes
* lighthouses
* steampunk
* Pokemon
* Greetings from...
* Studio Ghibli


I would love for you to send samples of tapes YOU like instead of you trying to match MY likes. I enjoy seeing what others find fun and beautiful. =)

By the way...

  • I'm very allergic to cigarette smoke so please don't send smoky items.

  • I promise to rate quickly for every swap I receive!

  • My goal is to give each swap partner mail that makes them smile :)

  • Oh, and if by some chance you get mail from me with postage due, please let me know and I will immediately mail you the extra stamps or money! Or I can send you the difference through paypal. But please be honest about this and not take advantage of my offer if there really was no postage due. I'm very particular about putting enough postage and weigh and calculate prices on the USPS site. However, I know that things can happen and there are differences of opinion among postal workers, so....

Kawaii Needs Its Own Section!!

Kawaii 101 for inquiring minds!

I love regular and mini note pads and loose sheets, envelopes, letter sheets, pencils, sticker flakes, buttons, deco and washi tapes, postcards if they exist (I've never seen any but who knows??) I love all the characters and themes except the poo ones, Zombitt, and the real children. I like the photo ones of animals and items, though! And all of these:

  • My newest love! ♥ Jinbei San! ♥

  • Hello Kitty ♥

  • My Melody ♥

  • Cinnamaroll ♥

  • Berry Puppy ♥

  • Kuromi ♥

  • Tokidoki ♥

  • Rilakkuma

  • Sentimental Circus ♥

  • Chou-fleur

  • Tarepanda

  • Piggy Girl

  • Puku Puku

  • Kutusita Nyanko ♥

  • Clover's Town

  • Sugar Bear

  • Kinoko No Mori

  • kawaii ghosts

  • fairytales

  • kawaii kitties, puppies, bunnies, bears

  • older Sanrio characters

  • really any kawaii except Zombitt and poo. Really.

Just because it's not on this list doesn't mean I don't like it! I may have not seen it yet! :)

HelenG6 rated for IWTS: Animal Theme Washi Tape on Apr 15, 2018
Comment: Than you for the great animal washi. Where did you get the Suzy's zoo washi? I don't see any in Canada, and the locations in U.S. I check out. Weather is not good here. There was an ice/freezing rain and heavier precipitations continuing. It was an inside day today and hope for improvements by Wednesday.
Response: I sure hope spring finds you there SOON! Winter seems like it doesn't want to let go this year. I don't remember exactly where I got the Suzy's Zoo washi... Ebay or etsy... There's a seller on ebay called wangrea and the store is called Qlychee. Super selection of washi tapes and I'm thinking that's where I got the Suzy's Zoo. Hope that helps! =) ETA: I checked out that seller today and didn’t find any great tapes. =(
ArtyBeth3 rated for WOW: Roy G Biv - April on Apr 14, 2018
Comment: I love getting swaps from you! You always present them in such cool ways and you are always so very generous. These tapes you've chosen for me are wonderful, and you are super sweet to have included some unused vintage postage for me (cactus stamps, how fun)! Thanks for a wonderfully happy mail day. :)
Response: Any chance to look through the washi stash makes for a good day! LOL! I'm glad you like what I sent! Thanks for the nice rating! =)

Hi! I love the creepy crawlies, too. And I've lived in Alaska. What town were you in? I was stationed at Ft. Richardson, near Anchorage.

Nice timing! I got your mail yesterday, but we were out all day at a SM event so I didn't get to open this until just now! How delightful! You're just too sweet and I can't thank you enough. XOXO
