!!!!! 🚫 NOTHING SCENTED EVER - no candles, no incense, no perfume, NOTHING. - If you send me something sprayed with perfume or with some of this in it, I WILL ABSOLUTELY THROW YOUR SWAP AWAY - NO QUESTIONS ASKED. I would HATE to throw away a gift, but I literally CANNOT be near that sort of thing PERIOD, EVER, FULL STOP. I have chronic [seemingly unending] migraines which are very difficult to treat, so I do hope you will be willing to be understanding about my WORST trigger. [This is the VERY FIRST thing in my profile for good reason!]
My legal name is Jamie -- which is what all mail has to be addressed to, but I do prefer Dane, so if we're sending notes, please make sure to use my preferred name! MY PRONOUNS ARE HE/HIM/HIS - PLEASE. I will not give you a heart, if you can't do something as simple as use the name I prefer. I also identify as male, so please keep that in mind as well! ⚧
As of 2/4/21 , I am in DEEP TROUBLE. I am totally and entirely out of literally everything - envelopes, stamps, flat mailers, all of it. If there's anything we can work out, please drop me a line.
Eager to see the sort of swaps I put together? Take a peek.
I sell swapping and penpalling supplies on my Etsy store and you can ALWAYS use coupon code: SWAPBOT10 for 10% off any order. US Shipping is only a buck, and I do ship Worldwide for just $2. I also run a Happy Mail Group Chat. If you're interested in joining my work from home group, join us here!
Due to my transportation situation, I will never, ever turn down FOOD (or cat food/supplies for my boy).
If you would prefer not to have a 'surprise' swap, I am a member of a forum where I do have lots of pictures of what I have. If you would prefer to take a peek, just let me know via message.
If for any reason my swap comes postage due, I would feel simply terrible. Please, TELL ME IMMEDIATELY, so I can pay you for it AND send you a token of my appreciation for your patience. I do use a postage scale, extra ounce stamps, and I print all of my postage for anything heavier than a few ounces, so you'll always have a delivery confirmation number. I sent either first class or priority depending on weight. I do my best to ship the same day partners are assigned; it's easier for me. If you're missing a swap, please don't hesitate to contact me directly, so I can make it right.
If I've somehow joined a swap and I'm required to send you just one or two things, I will absolutely be messaging you to do a private swap on top of the small one, because I hate to waste postage on one little washi card, a few stickers, etc. I hope you can be understanding.
THERE IS NO NEED TO MUMMIFY THE ENVELOPE, Y'ALL. Come on, tape is the enemy of the precious paper within! As @SunflowerRose put it, there is no need to tape the envelopes like it contains a mission from Inspector Gadget! Just washi will NOT hold an enevelope shut. I use the Peel & Seal envelopes, washi, and a single piece of tape to cover the washi. DON'T LICK, EVEN IF YOU AREN'T SICK!!!
I would really prefer if y'all used a playing card to wrap my washi - they fit perfectly in my binder, and I can display them. Not to mention, the tape doesn't stick to cardboard or anything. Truly laminated cards or plastic are fine too. If you want to wrap on cardboard tag or piece of cardboard, just keep it for someone else.
I live in a food desert in bumblefuzz. I can't drive, due to medical reasons, which is why I said food for me or my kitty is ALWAYS appreciated.
If you are from Winton, California, your swap got lost in the snowstorm; please let me know, so I can rate you! https://informeddelivery.usps.com/box/pages/secure/packageDashboardAction?selectedTrckNum=9500115451661040236508&selectedTypeOfLabel=Package
As of this writing, I live in Hot Springs Village, ARkansas, which for my international friends, is in the south, near Texas. It's fairly warm here.
I take care of a handsome grey and white kitten that we call Charlie. 🐈
I work from home as a freelancer, and am always interested in hearing about unusual gigs or ways to earn a few bucks!
I have both carpal tunnel and tennis elbow, so my writing skills are not very high. I had bilateral arm surgery, so I'll try to leave a note, but there's no way I could hand write something like a two page letter. Also, due to this limitation and my lack of creative ability, I try not to join any crafty swaps! Please cut me some slack about my handwriting; I understand it is hard to read. I do the very best I can. I am not loving postcard swaps for this reason. I feel like I have to have a ton to say, and people have told me that my writing is difficult to read -- letters that are most especially hard are - A, N, G, R, E, O, C, M, S. If you're having trouble trying to read what I'm saying, put some of those letters together. :P
I NO LONGER smoke cigarettes, but I still am ALWAYS willing to trade cigarette coupons. Just ask me for what you need.
I have three tattoos - cherries on the nape of my neck, a double infinity symbol on my left wrist, and the first three verses of Amazing Grace down my leg thigh.
In regards to stickers, I am addicted. I run a Sticker Swap/swapping group chat where its really easy to share photos as well! I love joining sticker swaps!
I'd rather be a baddie than a biddie. ;]

I work on holidays all year long - Mother’s and Father’s Day, Christmas, and birthdays. I’m always looking for goodies to make others in my life happen. These are not things /I/ particularly like, but they will certainly be appreciated! My twin sister, Suzy, is OBSESSED with Pokemon; she loves being kind to others, and yellow (especially sunshines)! My mom was a stewardess for forty years and really enjoyed seeing all the different countries she flew to. She does enjoy snail mail as well, and she was the one that instilled my love of words, reading, and writing within me! My dad is more of a laid back guy, but he DOES collect floaty pens (the ones with the water in them)! My parents have been married since 1976! My childhood best friend, Shellz, has been working on saving the dolphins for what feels like a decade now. She and Suzy have both helped to bring out an appreciation for creatures I never knew I had!
If you're simply perplexed on what to send me, I would absolutely love more soup: https://amzn.to/2JUsWu4 and applesauce: https://amzn.to/3n1pn41 - PLEASE.
Every time you think you got it bad, You can find someone who's got it worse. All the things you take for granted now, They started out as blessings first. If you got someone who loves you, And a steady job that puts food on the table. If you're strong and able, Man, be grateful. - Be Grateful by The Farm
My Favourite Murder
It seems my interests are kinda narrow: true crime and mysteries, aviation and all forms of transportation, hiking, and WWII.
Do you know about the brave POSTMEN, who herically defended their post office in Danzing, Poland in 1944? (Definitely a story that needs to be told time and time again!)
(If you send me something on this list, I just put it DIRECTLY into my to swap pile.
Plants/Floral/Succulents [I have a brown thumb, and just not into this. I like NATURE, yes, but by that I mean landscapes, mountains, scenery [NOT OF FLOWERS OR PLANTS, THANKS!], trails, vistas, that sort of thing. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, stop sending me plant stuff!!!]
I put all of my postcards in a 4x6 photo album or on my wall. I don't send them naked. I don't have any postcard stamps.
I don't chew gum very often. Less so after my wisdom teeth removal.

About my (EXTREMELY TEMPORARY) one rating or the Wall of SHAME: Without even reaching out to contact me, @bpl76 consciously chose to go out of her way to obliterate my perfect five rating earn over a whopping EIGHT years here on Swapbot, by giving me a one on 3/2/2021, despite just twenty-seven days passing since the send date. There was also a freak snowstorm here in Arkansas, which is always unprepared for any snow at all, (in which I was not able to get mail in or out for an unprecedented TWO WEEKS, with record lows here in BOTH our states, not to mention, overworked, underpaid, and underappreciated postal workers. She must have thought she was special, as she was the ONLY ONE out of TWENTY partners to CLAIM she never received this swap, despite being shown multiple instances of photo proof of sending. She insisted she was jUsT fOLlOwInG tHe RuLeS by rating me the one, despite failing to follow swapper etiquette to reach out someone before leaving a poor rating. She asserted she had dOnE nOtHiNg WrOnG and to not take things so personally - it could easily change. She never once apologized or rerated, and after dealing with her nonsense ALL NIGHT LONG during my night shift, I IMMEDIATELY went out and bought some new stuff to satisfy her vague profile. After I told her I emailed her (and showed her the screenshot) of where I did say that one day the mailman did not take my totally stuffed mailbox to the post office, she asserts, she, as a grown adult in the modern day world just dOeSn'T cHeCk HeR eMaIlS. She said I was over the top, but.. I'm just not sure how she could act totally clueless about the situation and oh soooooooooo confused about why I would be livid. Instead of actually communicating about the situation, being mindful of others, even asking about her swap, you'll see that her choice to rate without reaching out speaks volumes about her and her character. Please keep situations like this in mind when considering one ratings - as she even admitted that she tarnished mine ON PURPORSE.
Goodness, we can't forget her loving sister, @Burger1girl who said new laws are in effect. (WAIT, IS TODAY THE PURGE?!?!), and that I need to cEaSe AnD dEsIsT contacting her sissy AT ONCE. Just as her big sister has falsely accused me of lying, she is saying I must cease or be rEpOrTeD - which is actually pretty freaking stupid, considering how quickly I emailed admit about her sister, rating without messaging, since she just wanted to have a bit of us excitement. Must be getting kinda boring for y'all in quarantine, huh? Forward this to your oFfiCiAlS.
