Since October 1 is World Postcard Day, my goal for the month of October is to mail 100 postcards! Please send me a message with your address if you would like to receive a postcard or do a private swap for one! I will be mailing all 100 postcards at once on October 29
Currently on postcard 76 of 100 (14 Oct)
Hello! My name is Heidi and I am a 22-year-old college student living in the Lone Star state of Texas! 🤠I'll be graduating in December 2021 with my BA.
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!
I'm the founder of the International Stamp Collectors group, check it out and join in if you enjoy postage stamps!
If you're sending a postcard, I tend to like these themes! (Size 4"x6" and I prefer PCs being sent naked unless the swap says otherwise! Written on and no envelope, I think a blank postcard is a sad one)...
If you could send a touristy postcard from the place that you live, those are my absolute favorites! I also love....

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.
Just a few special things I've been looking for!
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 and hamsters 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!
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 😊
