First, please let me know by PM if you do not receive your swap in a reasonable time frame or if you happen to owe postage before down rating and I WILL make it right! I NEVER flake, and will send on time. I will let you know if something out of the ordinary comes up. The mail system is not normal right now so please reach out to me!
Hello, my name is Beth and I am a swapaholic. I love to create and share all things paper, crafty and happy mail goodness.
I consider myself to have very eclectic style, tastes and preferences. General aesthetics/ things my eyes love are:
~Abstract with bright colors
~Retro 80’s & 90’s
~Mid Century Modern or
~Pop Art themed.
Quite honestly, anything you put thought, heart and effort into I will love. I adore creating and receiving all things handmade.
I'm happily in a relationship with my long time friend/boyfriend & life partner. He takes care of me like no one else has in my entire 37 years of life. We reside with our 1 year old crazy beautiful Tortie sisters (Stella & Luna). They are my world.
11/20/20: I lost my sweet girl Camielle, and although it gets a tiny bit easier every day, she will always be my first love. You never forget and will always miss your best friend and first love. She was my sidekick for almost 16 years 🐈 💔 💔💔
I love arts & crafts but I am not super artistically talented. When I'm really into a craft I will pour my heart and soul and tend to be OCD about it. Lately, I have been really into paper crafts such as ATCs, journal making, penpal/snail mail and happy mail art. I want to get more into collage/mixed media too.
I am currently trying to find my true passion. Sometimes I am all over the place and my craft mood switches up a little. I struggle to find "the one" and what I am truly meant to be spending my time on. Therefore, I have tons of crafty supplies and my craft room is in need of organization.
I discovered Swap bot in July 2020. I used to love trading books and other items on Swaptree.com. I was HOOKED. I love receiving quick notes, letters, and snail mail and I have many interests. I am open minded and looking forward to seeing your items throughout all cultures and walks of life.

I don’t binge a lot of TV or shows, but from time to time I’ve been hooked on something and usually love to have something playing in the background.
My favorites: The Office, The Golden Girls, Family Guy, Two and a Half Men, Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, Adult Swim, True Crime, Unsolved Mysteries, Dry/Dark Humor, Shock Humor, Offensive light-hearted Humor/Sarcasm, Drama, Thrillers, Horror, Cheesy slasher and/or 80s horror, Original MTV / MTV Classic
Generally my tastes are themed around colorful, abstract, kawaii/cute, 80's/90's retro themed.
Kawaii washi tape or cat themed washi
Regarding Kawaii Swaps: I love authentic Kawaii & Kawaii inspired artists, Japanese and Korean stationary, especially cat themed, the teddy bear (Rilakkuma) or that cute little duck (Kamonohashikamo). Love strange & weird and with food incorporated in the theme or if it has grammatical errors 🤣 I ADORE mini letter sets!!
I don’t usually prefer Kawaii that is easily purchased in the US (Pusheen, American Hello Kitty, etc) or Kawaii with actual humans as the theme.
Blank address labels
Cool, colorful, pretty or interesting looking buttons or charms
Abstract art with bright colors
ABSOLUTELY LOVE Magazine pages or clippings from Project Calm Magazine, Flow, Origin, Daphne's Diary or ArtJournaling Magazine
Used stamps from all over the world - if already removed from envelope/paper, or if the adhesive easily allows it to be removed.
Unused stamps are appreciated as well 🙂

Interesting Newspaper Articles
Old Postcards People Actually Wrote and Sent
Your Art... I'd love to see it!
Dad Jokes/ Light-hearted Sarcasm/Offensive Stuff/ Shock Humor/ Satire
Regarding Tea Swaps: Please no chai, licorice, plain green tea, or plain chamomile tea.
Please protect your items when sending. It's really a bummer when someone takes the time to create a lovely swap, and later to find the post office has damaged or SCUFFED beautiful & usable goodies or artwork. I understand things happen, but please double check your stuff.
I am RARELY offended, have more likes than dislikes, and totally understand and respect that everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and opinions.
That being said, the following are things I do not have a use for:
Planner stickers or kiddie stickers
Postcards (unless the swap calls for them or they refer to my likes list) I like post cards, but currently I have SO many :)
I will read your profile and try to cater to your likes and dislikes.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read about me! Happy swapping!
