About Me 👩🏼

Update (8/22): I recently moved from Texas to Iowa. If you need my new address, please send me a message!

Hello! My name is Heidi and I've loved being here on swap-bot for the past few years. I graduated from college in December of 2021.

I have a little bunny named Dumbledore (or Dumby for short) and a long-haired blonde hamster named Pancake.

I live a zero waste / eco minimalist lifestyle. If possible, please reuse some scrap paper for letters or to be upcycled into an envelope- thank you!

I LOVE the color pink💖 (it's my favorite color), hot air balloons 🎈, rainbows🌈, and strawberries🍓! If you send me anything with those on it I will love it!

For postage stamps, here are some themes I like: (used/mint, on/off paper, any country) Feel free to send me your damaged stamps, I use them for craft projects :)
☀️Bright colors
🍏Fruits / vegetables / food
✨Special stamps (lenticular, clear, shiny, gold foiling, etc.)

Tea 🫖☕️

*I love tea! I try to drink a cup every day and I've loved "tasting the world" through the teas that other lovely swappers have sent to me. Some of my favorites have been:
* Fruit-flavored (blueberry, orange, strawberry, etc.)
* Floral (lavender, chamomile, hibiscus, rose, jasmine)
* David's tea, for some reason I struggle to find it

I have no tea dislikes besides licorice

Swapping With Me ✉️

I always send my swaps out either by the due date or right after partners are assigned! If you live in the US, please let me know if you haven't received my swap 2 weeks after the deadline. If you are international, feel free to send me a message if it's been a while and you haven't received anything. I know with the pandemic there's a lot going on with the postal service in everyone's countries! :)

Feel free to send me a message if you're a newbie and would like to do a private swap with me, I know it can be hard to get ratings under your belt when you first join.

Wishlist ✨

Just a few special things I've been looking for!

  • "Please deliver to" labels for writing addresses
  • Return address labels
  • Strawberry, blueberry, or orange flavored teas
  • Blank postcards
  • Kids' stickers / stationery / postcards, especially ones with tigers or Winnie the Pooh. I have a 4-year-old niece (Alivia) and a 16-month-old niece (Ellie) who jump for joy when Aunt Heidi sends them fun-looking mail :)

🚫Please avoid sending...

Anything witchy (besides Harry Potter) / pagan / wiccan, as I am a Christian and just not into those things. I am okay with confetti as long as it isn't teeny tiny, but please do not send me loose glitter as my pets could get into it.

Other than that, I'm not picky at all! Send me whatever makes you smile, it'll probably make me smile, too!

Comment: Thank you for the cool Haiku, fellow Potter head! I visualised the scene reading it.
Comment: Hello Heidi ! Thank you very much, for the so lovely/pretty and decorative Valentine card and the goodies. I really love them! You asked me in the card, Any fun plans yet for Valentine's ? No none here. We are still afraid to go to eat, with the Covid still lingering. But I plan to make my husband & I a small Pot Roast slow cooker meal and some Pineapple cookies with pineapple frosting. Yum!. I hope you have fun making your pasta and baking. Happy early Valentine's Day!
Comment: Thank you so much for the card and the enclosures! No plans as of yet, but Valentine's Day is also my little granddaughter's birthday. She will be 4

Hi! Here's a simple dream of mine in a form of a haiku:

I dream of softness:
gentle colors, quietness and
endless cups of tea
