I am starting a 4x6 inch post card collection for my son! If you have postcards with animals, plants, nature scenes, buildings, landmarks, or anything else you think a young boy would like, I would appreciate it. His name is Lach - we can set up a swap if you'd like!
Hello! I'm Kate. I'm 33 years old, and I live with my husband and infant son in Colorful Colorado. My hobbies include kawaii collecting, postage stamps, yoga, meditation, journaling, letter writing, sipping tea, and managing all of my Swap-Bot groups! I also love to collect vintage textiles, mid-century rhinestone jewelry, and old medicine bottles. An afternoon at the antique mall is like heaven for me!
The Internet is a fabulous tool, but all the artificial, surface-level communication is getting me down. I always appreciate a personal note in swaps so that I can get to know your personality - it makes the swap so much more meaningful I think!
I mark items as "sent" as soon as they're in the mail. I live in the wild woods of Colorado, so sometimes they're not postmarked until the following day. I'm also not able to get to my PO Box more than once or twice a week (especially during winter snows and at the height of tourist season in the summer!).
I'm looking forward to swapping with you!
Melanoma is a dangerous form of skin cancer that kills 90% of those who catch it too late - if you think a mole or freckle looks suspicious, get it checked out! Early detection saved my life.

I'm a founder in the I LOVE Kawaii! Group here on Swap-Bot, and I created the above Flash presentation to help people new to kawaii swapping understand the hobby better. ^_^ Please feel free to share that presentation around - I'd appreciate it if you link back to my profile. (Here it is as an Adobe PDF too.)
For kawaii swaps, I prefer to receive authentic kawaii brands. I love it when people send me some stickers that all came from the same sack, or maybe one of each of the designs from a particular memo pad. I like to coordinate things! You can find my want list and see my kawaii style on my Pinterest too!
Since I got my typewriter, I'm interested in lettersets that don't have lines! If you're looking to unload that sort of thing, PM me and we could do a private swap!
A Very Brief List of General Kawaii Themes I Love!

Kawaii Dislikes: I feel a little strange writing these out, but if you're investing a lot of money or effort, you might want to save these things for people who might appreciate them better!
I'm not sure why people are so stingy with hearts on postcard swaps, but if I see that you've read this section of my profile, I'm pretty generous (especially if you send a fun postage stamp!).
I prefer store bought cards, sent naked (without an envelope), with colorful, unusual, or old postage stamps. I LOVE hand cancellations - especially if the cancellation isn't machine-sprayed again. I mostly collect 4x6 inch cards.
Please date your postcard!
I am also collecting 4x6 inch postcards for my son. If you have postcards with animals, plants, nature scenes, buildings, landmarks, or anything else you think a young boy would like, I would appreciate it. His name is Lach - we can set up a swap if you'd like!
These are some of my favorite postcard themes (and feel free to be inspired by anything else on my profile!):

No, thank you.
Please don't interpret this as a greedy "want list" - I'm including this information so that perhaps we can identify common interests! If we're involved in a profile-based or wish-list sort of swap, then of course you may use this list and my other likes to inform your swap choice.
MY BABY BOY!
Please don't think of this as a "I hate this" list. ;) I actually feel sort of funny even writing this stuff out (I've seen a lot of long, complex "dislike" lists lately, and I think it takes the fun out of swapping)! If you have a passion for something, I'm more than happy to read about it, so please don't get shy based on this list. But if you're sending items you spent time and money on, you might want to save these items for people who would better appreciate them:
