About Me 👩🏼

I'm engaged! My wonderful boyfriend, Jeremy, proposed to me at a lake where we had one of our first dates. We aren't sure on when we're getting married yet, just enjoying our engagement for now. We're over the moon happy and excited!

I'm a member of Mrs. Grossman's Sticker Club! You can use code STICKERFRIEND for $5 off your first month at this link if you'd like to join. (I don't make money off of this, just sharing some stickery happiness!)


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 with a degree in communications and consumer management. I work full-time onboarding car dealerships for a bank in the auto department, but my dream is to be a stay-at-home mom.

I have a little bunny named Dumbledore (or Dumby for short) and a long-haired blonde hamster named Pancake. I also have notoriously neat handwriting. Some people have told me that it looks like a font or something printed off of the computer! I love handwriting penpal letters and swaps :)

I am a Christian and my faith is the most important thing in my life. I enjoy Bible journaling, keeping a prayer journal, and having fellowship with others. I am always willing to talk about Jesus to anyone who will listen! ✝️💒🛐

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!

Postcards & Stamps 💌

If you're sending a postcard, I tend to like these themes. If you could send a touristy postcard from the place that you live, those are my absolute favorites! I also love....

🦋Butterflies
⛪️Chapels / churches / monasteries (photos, paintings, drawings, all types)
🌸Flowers
🐹Hamsters and guinea pigs
💜Hearts
🎈Hot air balloons
🐞Insects
💌Postcrossing (meetups, Postcrossing themed, etc.)
🐰Rabbits
🌈Rainbows or rainbow colored things
🕊Saints / Christianity / Christian figures
🎆Stained glass
📬Stamp-themed
✨Special postcards (cork, wood, lenticular, shaped, seed packet, things like that)
(If you want to send me a previously used postcard, feel free to put a piece of paper over the back and reuse it!)

For postage stamps, I collect ones with plants and animals on them.

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)
☕️ Chocolate mint
☕️ 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.

I trade and accept excess of the following:
* Friendship books / sheets
* Label bags
* Used stamp bags
* Sticker bags
* Traveling postcards
* Slams
* Crams

Wishlist ✨

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

  • Prayer cards (usually the size of a playing card, they have a Christian image on the front and a prayer on the back)
  • "Please deliver to" labels for writing addresses
  • Stationery paper
  • Return address labels
  • Strawberry, blueberry, or orange flavored teas
  • Blank postcards
  • Kids' stickers / stationery / postcards for my nieces (age 5 and 2)

🚫Please avoid sending...

Anything witchy (besides Harry Potter) / pagan / wiccan, swearing, and pride flags/insignia, as I am a Christian and these things go against my beliefs. 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 pretty oil painting postcard. It seems like every time I turn on the tv there is always a Harry Potter movie on at least one channel. They're so popular.
