2-1-2023 I will be taking a little pause here on swap-bot. Postage has increased recently and keeps increasing. I also plan to focus more on my new 2023 journal endeavors, spend more of my free time reading and writing, use my time to answer my pen pal letters. see the grandkids, go on vacation, get out more in nature, do some bible study, and continue my worldwide postage stamp collection. Please message me if you have ideas for a private swap.

I like all sorts of postcards for my collection, including recipe, tourist, art, weird, map cards, vintage, photo, multi view, free ad and handmade postcards. I collect Catholic holy cards and prayer cards.

I collect U.S. and worldwide mint and used postage stamps, interesting postmarks and First Day Covers. Thank you for your kindness.

I recently started a junk journal collection of decorated envelopes. It would be nice if you prettied up the front of the envelope before mailing. Just a thought and small request.

I enjoy all kinds of postcards you may send, written or unwritten in an envelope, your choice. I am starting to join more hand crafted and chunk o cardboard style postcards, open to personal trades.

About Me

We have an orange and a brown tabby who rule the household and we love them!

I would like to tell everyone that if you get flaked on in any swap, that I would enjoy sending you whatever you missed, so message me and I will send you something!

Thank you to all who helped me to complete my collection of 50 U.S. map postcards and covers. Now I am starting to collect a postmark from every country in the world on an envelope or a postcard.

Please note I do not accept food items. Also I don't need or care for reward stickers or emoji stickers or loose glitter.

Comment: Thank you for a lovely swap. I appreciate all the recipes, and extra stamps. We are -30 and snowing this last week, and very happy to have our son home from university after three days of delays due to airline issues and weather.
Response: !.5 inches of rain today and tonight. So good to look out the window and picture my anise and nasturtium seeds in the wet soil. This was a fun and easy swap with some new recipes in my book. Let's celebrate a new year of good health and contentment.

Hello Barbara, I think my rabbit postcard for CPG: Cut n Paste PC #328363 (Global) is lost. It's been 8 weeks since I mailed it. So I dropped another Cut n Paste PC in the mail today (not a rabbit this time). Fingers-crossed that it arrives by May 20.

Hi Barbara!

Hugs Indira

Hi, Barbara, Thanks for the encouraging comment. Here is a saying a saw on a poster many years ago: "We are an Easter People and Hallelujah is our Song". Have a wonderful and blessed Easter. Take care, Nathalie
