About Me

First, please reach out 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

~Modern Bohemian

~Kawaii/Cute

~Mid Century Modern or

~Pop Art themed.

Quite honestly, anything you put thought, heart and effort into I will love. I love 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 38 years of life. We reside with our crazy, beautiful 1 year old Tortie kitty sisters (Stella & Luna). They are my world.

Lately, I have been really into paper crafts such as ATCs, journal making, flip books, and happy mail art.

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/ creations throughout all cultures and walks of life.

Favorite Crafts

  • Currently working on a journal with beautiful (mostly flat) mail art. I'd love to receive your artwork or decorated envelope/mail art as a piece to treasure forever!

  • Mixed Media

  • Collage

  • ATCs

  • Art Journaling

  • Crochet - been a newbie for several years and love newbie projects 🤣

  • Paper crafts / stationary / snail mail

  • Soap making

  • Miniature crafts / kits

  • Plants & Gardening...we have a wonderful garden and I give ALL the credit to my amazing boyfriend.

  • Sometimes I like to cook and bake :)

Wish List

Please don't send extras unless the swap calls for it or it pertains to my likes/wish list below.

I really appreciate the thoughtfulness but I am currently trying to declutter my messy craft room :)

  • Ephemera/cut-outs to use as subject or focal point for ATCs

  • Would love a few postcard pen pals! Send me a PM or if you have my address drop me a line. I love quick notes and to hear about your day, some drama/gripes, a happy moment, etc...from all walks of cultures and life.

  • Your mail art or artwork. I would love to add to my journal. I also LOVE thoughtful, decorated envelopes!

  • Cat Items

  • Miniature things

  • Blank address labels

  • Colorful, pretty or interesting looking buttons or charms

  • Mixed Media/Collage pieces/magazine cut outs

  • Abstract art with bright colors

  • Magazine pages or clippings from Project Calm Magazine, Flow, Origin, Daphne's Diary or Art Journaling Magazine

  • Your ATC

  • Your Art... I'd love to see it!

  • Zines

  • 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 🙂

  • Original MTV

  • Happy Mail', 'Thank You USPS/Mail Carrier', 'Air Mail', or 'Non Machinable' stickers

  • 80s/90s Vintage Items

  • 80s & 90s memorabilia - Love Rainbow Brite, Jem, Strawberry Shortcake, etc.

  • Comic Strips

  • Interesting Newspaper Articles

  • Old Postcards People Actually Wrote and Sent

~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 🤣 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.

~Regarding Tea Swaps: I’d love to try Autumn, Winter or Christmas themed and Sleepy Time teas as well. Please no plain chai, plain matcha, licorice, plain green tea, or plain chamomile tea.

I ask Kindly not to send

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 consider before sending.

I am RARELY offended, have more likes than dislikes, and totally respect everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and opinions.

That being said, the following are things I do not have a use for:

  • Religious stuff

  • Political stuff

  • Planner stickers or kiddie stickers

  • Blank postcards, not sent as a note (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.

Favorite Music

  • 90s Alternative, Grunge, Rap, Hip hop & pop (grew up in the 90s 💕☮️💾📟)

  • Modern Rock/Modern Alternative Rock

  • Punk, Ska, Reggae

  • 80s / 80s pop / 80s New Wave / 80’s Hair Bands

  • 60s, 70s & 80s Rock

  • Electronic

Favorite Television

I don’t binge a lot of TV or shows, but from time to time I’ve been hooked on something and usually like to have something playing in the background.

Some of my favorites:

The Office

Handmaids Tale

The Golden Girls

Shameless

Family Guy

F Is For Family

Two and a Half Men

Adult Swim

True Crime

Dry/Dark Humor

Shock Humor

Offensive light-hearted Humor/Sarcasm

Drama

Thrillers

Horror / Cheesy slasher and/or 80s horror

Original MTV / MTV Classic

Comment: Thanks so much for the cute card! I bought some of the same card :) The extras are all very cool too! We usually don't get many trick or treaters either but this year we seemed to have more than in the past. Hopefully it will stay that way. It is so much fun to see all the little kids dressed up and having fun.
