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
~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.
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!
Crochet - been a newbie for several years and love newbie projects 🤣
Paper crafts / stationary / snail mail
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 :)
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!
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 Art... I'd love to see it!

Unused stamps are appreciated as well 🙂

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.
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:
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.
