About Me 👩🏼

alt text Have an extra postcard? A sheet of kids' stickers you won't use? Click here!⤴

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. As I ran out of product, I replaced everything with plastic-free, package-free alternatives, or packaging that is compostable if possible. All of my clothing and housewares are secondhand, reducing the demand for more items to be produced. If possible, please reuse some scrap paper for letters or to be upcycled into an envelope- thank you!

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

✨SPECIAL REQUEST✨
My mom has breast cancer, and recently finished her chemotherapy and a double mastectomy. She has quite a road ahead of her with another surgery, radiation, and reconstructive surgery. She absolutely loves cardinals (the bird), so if you have any cutouts of cardinals, cardinal stickers, or just want to draw a cardinal and toss it in a swap, I'm putting together a scrapbook of them for her. She also loves Bible verses. Thank you to the people who have sent extras in their swaps with me for her, I appreciate it more than you can know!

Collecting / ISO 💌

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....
🐝Bees
🐤Birds
🦋Butterflies
⛪️Chapels / churches / monasteries (photos, paintings, drawings, all types)
🌈Rainbows or rainbow colored things
🌸Flowers (any kind)
❤️Hearts
🎈Hot air balloons
🐞Ladybugs
🐰Rabbits
🎆Stained glass

For postage stamps, my current goal is to have one from every country, but if you want ideas for themes I like: (used/mint, on/off paper, any country)
🏁Flags
🐤Birds
🦋Butterflies
🌈Rainbows
🌸Flowers
🍏Fruits and vegetables
❤️Hearts
🎈Hot air balloons
🐰Rabbits

My Pets 🐰🐹

I have two little hamsters and a pet rabbit. My hamsters are:
-Charmin (short-haired female Syrian)
-Miss Strawberry (dwarf mutt, probably a Campbell's dwarf)
I have had 9 hamsters since 2016, and I love them! They all have their own personalities and likes / dislikes, just like any other pet. Such sweet little buddies!
Update 3/6/21: My hamster, Muffin Man, passed away peacefully today. He was very old and got more than his fair share of a healthy and happy life as a hamster, but I still miss him ❤️

My bunny's name is Dumbledore or Dumby for short. He is 8 years old and such a spunky little guy, he loves parsley and being rubbed on the nose! He is a tortoiseshell Holland Lop.

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
  • Handwritten Bible verses
  • Book pages
  • Any magazine cutouts / magazine pages
  • Strawberry, blueberry, or orange flavored teas
  • Postcard books or box sets
  • Paw Patrol or Winnie The Pooh stickers / stationery for my niece

🚫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 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!

Comment: You clearly picked these with my stamp collection in mind! Thank-you. So many great stamps on the inside, including an old Canadian precanceled face stamp I didn’t have. And the outside envelope stamps were a treat too!!! This sun solar flare stamp is a stunner 🥰

Comment: Thank you for the Paris postcard. I did have to pay 39 cents postage. The post office said because the stamp was on the tall side of it, it had to have a regular stamp on it. No big deal, just wanted you to know for future swaps.
Response: Oh I'm sorry about that!! Thank you for letting me know :)

Thank you so very much for all the goodies you sent for the PF tag, cheap postage--pib.I had never gotten an origami ornament before and I've gotten 3 within the past 2 weeks! I love them so much! I would never have the patience to make something like that. The pressed penny is too cool as is the PC (I love TX). Thanks for the Gudetama sticker flakes. I was making chicken flavored ramen the other night and noticed that he is now the mascot on the outer packaging. Your envelope was a delight to receive. Thank you for brightening my day. =D

ariestess on Jan 5, 2021:
