I am a collector at heart and I love swapping. :) I've been a stamp collector for many years. I've also been actively collecting and swapping stamps, postcards and other paper via many different sites, though I'm new to swap-bot. Sounds fun! I send promptly and never flake, so please message me if you don't receive a swap (postal service isn't infallible).
I live in a busy tourist region of Canada, and am looking forward to getting back to normal. I am happily married and we have have two cats, Jessie and Pepper who are very adorable but also badly behaved. They are pictured in my avatar, based on an illustration I had commissioned (because I cannot draw sadly).
I wish I was more creative and artistic. I love seeing what people can do with their mail, but I tend to keep things simple, with beautiful stamps, nice stickers/washi and (far too many) pens/markers.
It's far too hard to put a small list here, but I am a sucker for mysteries from classics like anything by Agatha Christie, to procedurals from Michael Connelly, private eye novels from Sue Grafton, Robert P Parker or Janet Evanovich.
I read most genres, including science fiction, fantasy (Patrick Rothfuss), non-fiction, literature and the list goes on.
I usually read 50-100 books a year (my record is 126).
In terms of postcard (and sticker, and paper) topics .. I love cats, glitter, sparkle, owls, foxes and really anything cute! I preferred illustrated cards vs. photo (though I'll take animal cards in any way), and very open to brand new cards and vintage (new or used) cards.
When it comes to stamps, because I've collected for so long, I have many different topics and countries that I prefer. A few of them are coffee/tea, UNESCO, jazz, comics, owls, books on stamps, and stamps from all the countries of Scandinavia, plus Ireland, Austria, Japan, Botswana, Tonga and Germany.
