About Me

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 80โ€™s & 90โ€™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 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 ๐Ÿˆ ๐Ÿ’” ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”

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.

Favorite Crafts

  • Soap making (tiny business & hobby)

  • Miniature crafts / kits / paper crafts

  • Mixed Media Collage art (newbie)

  • Art Journaling (newbie)

  • Crochet - been a newbie for several years ๐Ÿคฃ

  • Paper crafts / stationary / snail mail

  • Plants & Gardening (dabble just a bit here & there)

Favorite Music

  • 90s Alternative, Grunge, Rap, Hip hop & pop (grew up in the 90s ๐Ÿ’•โ˜ฎ๏ธ๐Ÿ’พ๐Ÿ“Ÿ)

  • Modern Rock/Modern Alternative Rock

  • Punk, Ska, Reggae

  • 80s / 80s pop / 80s New Wave / 80โ€™s Hair Bands

  • 60s, 70s & 80s Rock

  • Electronic

Favorite Television

I donโ€™t binge a lot of TV or shows, but from time to time Iโ€™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

Things I Love/Wishlist

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 ๐Ÿคฃ I ADORE mini letter sets!!

I donโ€™t usually prefer Kawaii that is easily purchased in the US (Pusheen, American Hello Kitty, etc) or Kawaii with actual humans as the theme.

  • Miniature things

  • Blank address labels

  • Cool, colorful, pretty or interesting looking buttons or charms

  • Mixed Media/Collage

  • Abstract art with bright colors

  • ABSOLUTELY LOVE Magazine pages or clippings from Project Calm Magazine, Flow, Origin, Daphne's Diary or ArtJournaling Magazine

  • Your ATC

  • 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Original MTV

  • Weird / Out of the Ordinary things (especially Horror or Halloween-themed)

  • Gifts to use for mail art, swaps and happy mail are always appreciated

  • 80s/90s Vintage Magazine cut outs

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

  • Comic Strips

  • 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

  • Cat items

  • Regarding Tea Swaps: Please no chai, licorice, plain green tea, or plain chamomile tea.

I ask Kindly to Not 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 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:

  • Religious stuff

  • Political stuff

  • 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!

Comment: Thank you so much for sending the book and the cute extra stickers! I'm sorry the post office made you pay package rate. It seems so strange that this one got flagged as a package- but now I'll know I need to take it to the post office when I send it on! Thanks for making sure it got to me.

Beth, Thanks so much for the thank you letter/card/memos/stickers in response to the mail booklet that I made you. Itโ€™s nice to know that it was appreciated. Most times we just send it blindly out into the world and hope for a positive reaction. Thatโ€™s the goal right? Anyway- thanks again, I really appreciate it and yes- Keri Smith is actually my sibling and congrats on your garden successes! Warmly, Jenny ๐Ÿค“

Thank you so much for the LSRUS wishes! Your collage sheets and zine especially. Thanks for the note, too - I'll continue sending you stuff when I make or happen on things you might like.

Thank you so much for the cheesecloth piece and the floral die cuts for the CPG wishlist. I use cheesecloth in a lot of my mixed media works (ATCs, etc) and it creates a nice texture.

Thank you for the rad zines! You've given me a new favorite snarky saying: if you find me offensive, quit finding me. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Thank you so so much for your gift for our foster children! It made me tear up to receive something for them and your kindness is going far!! The pencils were so cool and the memo sheets were hilarious. I know the sweet reminders in the book will be needed as well. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!!

TeaNi on Jun 15, 2021:

thank you so very much

for granting a CPG wish for me with the wonderful assortment of seeds to plant- my husband and I plan to move to some land where we are building a house by the end of the year and I'm so excited to have a country garden next year, I'm storing up a little treasure chest of seeds! Thank you for your contribution!
