About Me

***FYI I will be out of town until July 20th, so unable to rate swaps during this time!****

Helloooooo, my name is Rosei, I am (almost) 33 and I live in a small city in Minnesota. Yes, it gets really, really, really cold here in the winter! I am the mother of two very fluffy cats.

I have always loved sending snail mail (my grandmother was my first pen pal!), and am so happy to have discovered swap-bot. I love postcrossing as well!

Looking forward to many more fun swaps - I love to send as much as receive I think!

Loves/Wish List

-Your mail art! Stamped! Handmade envie!

-Vintage (or vintage-themed) postcards, clothing, stickers... Everything :-)

-Fancy-Pants postage stamps on swaps! Old or new, the more the better. I don't officially collect stamps, but I love to get stamps from all over the world and I adore using old mixtures of stamps on my own swaps.

-STICKERS!!! Please no teacher/reward stickers/little kid themes, unless having to do with classic children's books or something silly like unicorns. =)

-Edward Gorey


-Air Mail themes

-Sparkle! Glitter! Shiny!

-Anything by Cavallini

-Black and white, photography, people. Nudity is fine.

-Ships and boats, nautical themes

-Cute woodland creatures (deer, squirrels, wolves, raccoons, badgers, etc)

-Bunnies (though I don't think they are so nice in real life... never as cuddly as they look)


-Mexican loteria cards, tarot cards

-Mayo Clinic collectibles (stamps, postcards, magnets?!)

-Unicorns! Pegasus! (Pegasi?) Horses!!

-Anatomy/Medical illustrations/Vintage medical and science stuff

-Art cards of all types

-Italy, Sicily (my boyfriend is from Messina, Sicily)

-Pigeons, owls and other birds


-Illustrations from classic or foreign children's books

-Unusual, interesting or funny (don't worry, I'm not easily offended)

-Any postcard from Puffin or Penguin sets

-Nature views (waterfalls, mountains, sunsets, ocean)


-Flowers, gardens, produce

-Oregon, Minnesota or Utah

-Foreign languages

-The Little Prince

-Alice in Wonderland

-Dr. Seuss

-Ballerinas, dance

-Ribbon, bakers twine

-Hand-made envies, little tiny envies, bags and boxes


-Kawaii - especially stickers and kitty stuff/weird little animals.

-Rubber stamps! On swaps or in swaps!

-Washi tape!

-Stationary sets, note cards, papers and postcards

-All sorts of tea, especially black tea and chai

-Dark chocolate (especially with added nuts, berries, caramel, yummm!)

-Photos - love to take them and love to see yours

-Sewn/fabric crafts (I can't sew at all, I am in awe of those who do).

-Your doodles, drawings and creations, regardless of perceived talent level ;)

Not so much...

Things that I don't like as much... Worst case scenario I will pass along in another swap =)

-Touristy postcards (unless called for in the swap)

-Perfume samples and other strongly smelly things, unless they are naturally scented

-Modern Disney stuff, vintage is fun

-Smily-face stickers or "good job" teacher type stickers/overly cutsie/kid stickers

And finally...

Please contact me if you haven't received a swap, I always send, and if something gets lost I will gladly send a replacement!!! And feel free to pester me to rate, sometimes I get behind when I am working a lot/taking call, and I don't mind being chided one bit!




Comment: Thank you for the great swap PCs and the extra PCs and very cool stickers!

Comment: Thank you for the lovely postcard! And I especially love the vintage stamps that you used! <3
Comment: My mailbox was happy with *four* swapbot offerings for me. I chose to open yours first because so awesome it was (do you speak Yoda/apparently, I do) , with stamps and washi bits. And now, I've decided to wait to open the others tomorrow (or maybe this evening, I'm weak-willed) because your postcard set for me is so perfectly funny and awesome, nothing can top it! Thank you! very! much! -Rhonda

Comment: Wow ! What a brilliant selection of cards. You really made my day. Wonderful selection. I love them all and also the great envie and stamps. Great your boyfriend is from Sicily. This isle is still on my Italian holiday wish list. Well the language of love is more important for you than knowing Italian ;-) And I'm sure he will help you if you want to learn more Italian. Happy swapping !

Comment: Hi Rosei - Thanks for a beautifully decorated envie (as always), and fun PCs. I almost couldn't stop laughing at the 'sales-oriented' dude in order to rate you for this swap. Still laughing, in fact. Thanks for joining and I hope you're having a great June. (P.S. Fab return address label! Drool...)
Response: Ahaha, isn't that card fantastic?? I got a few of those from a museum gift shop (my favorite places to shop, always), and I'm obsessed with them.
Lexidh rated for QUICK 50 stamps swap #203 on Jun 9, 2015
Comment: Thanks! There was 9 stamps in here that was damaged, mostly missing corners, please be more careful in the future! My cats could make their own bad cat calendar ;P Old grumps makes for photo material! They have quite the following on Google+, many more than my own posts!
Response: Aww, I'm sorry about that! I try to include lots of extras just in case. Have been moving so my brain is a little wonky. ;) That's very funny about your popular kitties, haha.
