About Me 👩🏼

Hello! My name is Heidi and I live in the Lone Star state of Texas! 🤠I graduated on December 11 with a BA in communications and a minor in consumer experience management. I work full time as a lab technician with PCR tests for a living.

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!

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
  • Any magazine cutouts / magazine pages
  • Strawberry, blueberry, or orange flavored teas
  • Blank postcards
  • Paw Patrol, Winnie the Pooh, or Frozen stickers; I have a 3-year-old niece (Alivia) who jumps for joy when Aunt Heidi sends her 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 pet rabbit 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!

📬Pen Pals

Letter updates for pen pals! Don't hesitate to send me a message if you would like to start a pen pal friendship with me 😊
