About Parakeetmails


I have been noticing an influx of missing swaps and a handful of resends lately, so if you're missing a swap from me, please dont hesitate to ask me about it, I will respond asap about it and fix any issue. Thank you for understanding!

Thank you ladies for being super kind, sweet, & overall great people. @LavenderSprinkles @debtea2 (Angeled for me) @area51ufo1

BULLYING IS NOT TOLERATED. Please do not come after me, or make false accusations. Just message me if you have any questions. :)

Swapbot is my anxiety reliever ♡ so please do not take this amazing experience away from me. I NEVER flake. Please have patience if you're waiting for a swap from me! I will resend if necessary ♡ I rate generously and have patience, so all I ask is for you to do the same back. Thank you! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Hiya! I'm Chana. If you could tell by my username, i'm an absolute bird freak. I love birds, more particularly parakeets. In my overall life i've owned 10 birds! So receiving birdie related things make me extra happy. SQUAK!

I take joy in decorating envelopes, creating fun swaps, & participating in all sorts of swaps. I love to swap stickers, anything with art, collages, journals, zines (not the minizines)...to sum it all up, I've got a fat love for artsy fartsy things, and occasionally crafty things. Mail art has a special place in my heart.

I also hoard postcards, as I currently have 200 collected illustrational art postcards that I've either purchased from etsy, asian postcross, or supporting artists. And, I also have a mighty impressive sticker collection going on. I love stickers. I am always open to private sticker or journal/art swaps.


I am a bit distant with most people, but please don't let that scare you! I'm pretty friendly...most of the time;). I am also recovering from Ana & Mia. I dont tolerate rude and mean people very well. ;_;


Please do not send me cheap, kiddy or vinyl stickers!!! No, seriously. I hate receiving them.

(I dont like disney, lisa frank, minions, sponge-bob, paw patrol...)

Comment: Thanks for the great playlist. I was just going through 'open' sent swaps and see that I apparently didn't click on the "I got my stuff" button. I am so sorry that this rating is so late.

LavenderSprinkles rated for Foodie Themed Swap on Sep 12, 2020
Comment: Thanks for the foodie goodies! It was fun to swap with you! Have a good weekend!
Comment: Thanks for the nice items! Have a great day! Happy swapping!
Comment: OMG!!! I had no idea that you are such a talented artist. I love the drawings so much. Your drawing style is so freakin' cute I can't stand it!!! I already have the possum drawing framed and it's hanging up next to my crafting area. Your sister's raccoon drawing is sooooo great! Tell her "thank you," and that I love it and will always cherish it. The card you made is so pretty and I plan on transferring the quotes to my quote and sticker bomb book. The little frog is my new companion because I'm going through a really rough time rn. All the other extras are fun as well. Thank you for being a ray of sunshine in my otherwise dreary world. It means a lot to me.
Comment: Thank you for all the pinkness. Unfotunately the envi ripped badly in transit and the items were loose inside, so I'm not sure if i was missing anything. The envelope decorations and the goodies that were still inside were great though :)
Response: Oh gosh, I'm sorry! I swear I taped the sides but maybe I forgot. I'm glad you enjoyed it nonetheless, but I feel bad it got tattered up in the mail like that!

@kiddomerriweather Thank you for the support. Even the smallest of words are a significant help.♡

kiddomerriweather on Jun 5, 2020:

Glad to see you're back and hosting. :)

FeltPrincess on May 26, 2020:

I am really sorry about your uncalled for 1 rating. I had a 3 like that in 2016. No explanation. She disappeared. :(

heavree on May 22, 2020:

Hello. I hope you are doing well. I love all of the pictures on your profile. We have a lot in common. Thank you for hosting Positive comments #2. I’m sorry I misread the prompt and was a little late. During this corona virus business I like to quote Demi Lavato “ No matter what you're going through, there's a light at the end of the tunnel.” I really believe that. Happy swapping 😊

LiliLuv on May 21, 2020:

Good morning, Chana! What a beatiful name! I hope you have a beautiful day! Here the sun is shining and the birds are chirping. You would like the view from my apartment, I often have parrot sightings! I was so surprised the first few times I saw them, but my neighbor across the way has a bunch of parrots. I open my blinds in the mornings and often see one or two in the window across from me. Now that it has warmed up, he lets them out on his enclosed balcony, too. I often wonder what they think about the other birds in the neighborhood. :) Thank you so much for your positivity-focused swaps! The one about what is making me smile really helped me adjust my perspective the other day. It is a good reminder, especially in times like these, to focus on the good, however small it might seem some days. Thank you! You are a wonderful person and you are worthy of kindness. Most of all, be kind to yourself! I hope you have a wonderful day and stay well! <3
