If you'd like to get to know me a bit...

I’ve moved around a lot & have lived in Austin, Boston, New York City, Los Angeles & Istanbul, but now I call Houston home. I've worked in book publishing, as an ESL teacher & now do marketing for a university. I’m married, no kids but am a dog mom. I’ve worked in dog rescue & am kind of obsessed with dogs and animals in general! I'm a vegetarian and love all animals, including farm animals.

I LOVE Fall, Halloween and Christmas!

I’m definitely a child at heart and enjoy silly and funny stuff and small details. Swapping has been SO MUCH FUN to see all the beauty in details in the packages I get. And planning and sending swaps has been such a great creative outlet too!

I love to explore nature and take my dog to a beautiful nearby park & observe the birds, wildlife & constantly blooming, changing plants.

I've evolved over the time I've been doing swapbot. Less Dollar Tree since I started receiving the same items and cards back as I was sending out. Now I try to buy on Etsy and am always surprised by some of the value, especially with card sets. I've also been doing more doodles and mail art.

Likes & Dislikes

LIKES

  • LOVE washi

  • Pop culture stuff, memes!!!, humor

  • Dogs, terriers

  • Black cats

  • Flowers, plants, cactus, trees

  • Birds, owls, raccoons, opossums, woodland creatures like deer & foxes

  • Camping, campfires, forest, pine cones, cabins

  • Blue sky and clouds. Stars & night sky, outerspace.

  • Magnolias!! are my favorite flowers/trees

  • Hot pink, polka dots, stripes, black and white, gold, RAINBOWS! 🌈 + GLITTER & SPARKLE!

POSTCARDS I've started swapping postcards this past year. I love nature pcs, illustrations, black and white, and interesting photography. But really anything is fine. I very open to a surprise.

ARTS & CRAFTS

  • Mixed media, collage, illustrations, acrylic painting, lino cuts, photography, line drawings, doodles

DISLIKES

  • Meat, seafood, leather. So that extends to pictures of meat, fishing, hunting, too.

  • Along the same lines, I prefer not to get pictures of animals as carriage horses, in rodeos, zoos, circuses, dog sledding, etc.

  • Don’t love tea, pine-scented holiday candles or cinnamon-scented things

While I don’t dislike religion, I’m not religious so those items aren’t for me.

I LOVE having the opportunity to be creative and giving & doing swaps! I get just as much enjoyment if not more out of planning, preparing and sending swaps, although a mailbox full of happy mail is a pretty joyful thing! :)

Comment: Happy Holidays Heather! Thanks so much, for the so very very pretty Christmas tree card and the stickers & Vintage stamps! I love all you sent me so very much! Esp. the vintage stamps! Thanks so much again! You were saying in your card, you went completely overboard with cards, vintage stamps, washi, and stickers. I did the same thing. Except Vintage stamps. I wanted to get some from etsy.com. But I also went overboard on Christmas gifts. Especially for my 11 grandchildren. Yup, I said 11. I always start getting their gifts right after Christmas & work my way up to November. Always looking for sales. In between, I get for my 5 adult children. But I have to start right after Christmas, since I am on SSDI. As there is no place I know of who even does Layaways anymore. I hope you have a very special Christmas Heather!

Comment: Many thanks for the fantastic mailing. I love all of the stamps you sent - probably my favorite is the 1963 Christmas stamp, which I believe is the first US Christmas stamp. I like all of the stickers,especially the snow globes. And your envelope is a keeper! The Christmas stamps look terrific along with your mail art.

@takehimaway Hand lettering books got my attention! I'm trying to catch up on swaps after an insane month. Once I catch up, I'd like to do that. Thanks!

If you wanna do another private swap, I do have some hand lettering books.
