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!
Hi! My name's Beth. I'm a reliable swapper, share ad min job in a great facebook USA swap group and ran one international Yahoo group for a time, belonged to several others (until postage went sky high.) Was in the penpal world for about 23 years and still friends with a lot of my original pals- plus so many newer ones- although these days, with facebook, we enjoy talking there instead. Started swapping on a regular basis several years ago and really enjoy it!
Things I love to do : Besides paper crafting, I love drawing, painting, and photography, gardening, driving/ sightseeing....
I'm in love with nature and all animals. I even love most insects and creepy crawlies!
I have 2 very spoiled Chihuahuas, a big lab mix rescue and 2 pit bulls, and a varying amount of cats since it's well-known in the stray cat world that a free meal can always be found at our house. :) I ADORE cats but am really allergic to them and have to take several meds to be around them- which means no fur kids are ever allowed into my craft room....
I've been married to my best friend for 27 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 the southern state of Mississippi. I have lived in Alaska, Missouri, Kansas, and Louisiana and have visited 17 states and part of Canada. Our business and paying for college keeps us near home these days but hopefully someday we'll get to do some traveling....
I always read the profiles of my partners and include something extra I think they'll enjoy. Every swap is personal to me! I send most swaps out within a day or two of partners being assigned (the make new items might take a bit longer). 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. Please know I'll give great ratings for great swappers and hope you'll do the same when you see that I am a great swapper too :) 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.
You definitely don't need to send me extras- 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.

anything with cute/ whimsical forest creatures (fox, deer, raccoons, frogs, etc, as well as mushrooms, fairies, elves)

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 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 ♥
Berry Puppy ♥
Sentimental Circus ♥
Kutusita Nyanko ♥
Kinoko No Mori
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! :)
