ANNOUNCEMENT: On May 7, 2014 I changed my username!! I am a Swap-bot Original Member, from the days when usernames were assigned numerically - no personalization. I am no longer user3296 but now velmalikevelvet - don't freak out if you see user3296 on a swap postcard, it's really me!
Mostly, I swap postcards here. My favorites land on my Wall of Shame in my house.
Postcard theme LIKES: + vintage + tacky + unusual + kitsch + weird + creepy + offensive + your art + handmade
Postcard theme DISLIKES: - cutesy - generic - pets - religious - boring
Things everyone should include on postcards: + date + swap-bot username + return address + why you chose the card + a note
Extras I appreciate on postcards: + stickers + art + rubber stamping + what you are reading + hand-cancelled
Please, just don't on postcards: - solicit anything - envelopes
Other things I do/like besides snailmail: + voracious reader + avid bicyclist + intermediate knitter + spinner of yarn + rubber stamp carver + Doctor Who fangirl + old-school feminist + IPA beer lover
