ALL SWAPS DUE ARE SENT THIS WEEK. I am taking a hiatus from swap bot. My business is growing and work is crazy. I will rate all incoming swaps,but keep in mind I will be slow to answer messages .
Pronouns :she/her. Zodiacs : Capricorn/metal rooster
I am a Teacher’s Aide for for the Los Angeles Unified School District.I haven’t been active on here for a long time ,but am going to try it again.
I am on here mainly for postcard swaps.I am in many groups on Facebook and also on postcrossing and Postcards United. I like to have many options.
I also recently got a few slams sent back. One had been traveling 12 years ! I see there are still those types of swaps and want to get into them again
I am a recent widow,( not to Covid-19)but I don’t let that stop me. I know My James wouldn’t want me to stop travelling or postcard trading ( he thought it was so neat to get postcards ) We travelled all over Europe,and I was planning on going solo inJune,but had to cancel. It’s ok cause I will have more funds,and can splurge more.I am interested in postcrossing meetups,so let me know. Mainly West,East and South . I really don’t go to the Midwest .
I don’t have kids,but I have fur babies .two rabbits and my cheagle Lucy. I also have Stari the tortoise. The other kids in my life are apart from me right now. I dearly miss my students. We actually have a postcrossing/trading group. It was really cool to see them share in my hobby
RATINGS Before giving me a 1 or 3 I would appreciate a message or email letting me know so we can work things out. If you are going to sign up for a swap please rate. It takes 5 seconds
I like to give hearts for especially beautiful postcards or people who seem to just take the extra time in a swap.. and actually take the time to read my profile
As for people worrying about getting bad ratings...Especially with all going on right now,I know swaps are going to take longer to get here. Just don’t lie about when you sent . That is what I hate. If you are going to be late just send me a dm. Life happens.
I’ve been swapping so long I know when people are bulls’#$%ing. Example : the girl whose grandma “died” five times.
I appreciate everything sent to me. I don’t have too many dislikes,and If I cant use it I have my students( look at their list)
If I do ask to resend and the original swap shows up. I will gladly return the extra swap. ( for postcards I will send one in return based on your profile)
Dec 2020: all postcards from my dislikes list will be tossed out. I have a pretty extensive list of likes so this is not ok . Remember I may be the one sending to you so ,just putting that out there

I usually sign up for naked postcard swaps, cause I feel they are more personal,but sometimes I do sign up for ones in an envelope..

Thank you for the January CPG wishes! I'm thrilled with all the vintage motel PC's. I think I'm going to have to get a new album now. I love the pink banana Pipstickers. I was going to order those the other day, but for some reason I always abandon my Pipsticks cart. I tell myself, "It's just an impulse buy; don't do it!" I love the Dolly mail art, too. The envelope is definitely going in a journal.
Thank you for the ‘Rick and Morty’ ATC (CPG ATC jams). They arrived on the 24th as a very nice Christmas surprise. I love the snowman ATC as well. Thank you so much! Wishing you a new year in good health and filled with joy and creativity. ❤️
Thanks for the lovely wishes you sent my way!
I just realized that I have one of his Halloween craft books, and have for years! I was looking at his shop on the Glitterville website and I want so many things!
Thank you for the goodies from my November LSRUS wishlist. Lots of stuff I can use.
THANK YOU for my RBG cross stitch bookmark from my November wishlist at CPG! I love her!! She is too cute to hide in a book:)
Thank you for the LSRUS Nov wish. I love all the goodies. The images are great.
Thank you for the LSRUS wish and the mail art. I drawing and the papers you sent.
Yes, I learned the Hawaiian Island holiday song when I first moved down to FL. The Polynesian WDW resort hotel plays this island greeting song every Christmas season. You should see their Christmas - Island style decorations. Yes, greetings from a place where the sun shines, the palm trees sway, you could get a tan, no snow, no ice. I'll make sure to listen to this song during December to bring good cheer.
