Hello from Mississippi! My name is Beth! I am so appreciative of those swappers who take the time to send me happy mail ! Every bit of mail makes me feel special because someone went to the trouble just for me! :) Thank you all!
Things I love to do : I enjoy drawing, painting, and photography, gardening, driving/ sightseeing, long walks, writing stories and poems.
I'm in love with nature and all animals. I even love most insects and creepy crawlies!
I have one ancient darling Chihuahua and one sweetheart pit bull, and several precious kitties. I ADORE cats but am really allergic and have to take a lot of meds to have them. Due to the allergies, my feline kids aren't allowed in my bedroom or craft room so your swaps should be safe from cat hair. =D
I've been married to my best friend for 29 years and am the mom of 3 adult children and also work full time as office manager at our manufacturing company. I live on a used-to-be farm in a small town in Mississippi. I have also lived in Alaska, Missouri, Kansas, and Louisiana and have visited 20 states and parts of Canada. Hopefully that list will continue to grow!
If I don't receive a rating by you in a reasonable time, I'll contact you to make sure you've received your swap. I never flake on any swap so if you don't get mail from me, something has happened in transit and I would appreciate the chance to resend. I rate swaps received as I open them to make sure no one is missed. I will never give a rating of 1 without first trying to resolve the swap! Please note that I mark sent when my swap gets dropped in the box at the post office. Mail dropped off in the evenings will be postmarked the next day, or on the following Monday if it's dropped into the box on Saturday evening or Sunday.
I rate on the swap itself and am generous with hearts- but in case you just want to send something else or it's a profile based swap, here's some info about things I like.
a note about your day/ week/ where you live, etc.
tell me about your garden or pets!
pen or marker
miscellaneous regular size playing cards, any theme (Even one card I can add to the collection makes me happy!)
cute keychains or key covers
anything with pumpkins or snowmen on it
amigurumis or crochet patterns for cute ones
painted or drawn ATCs
a postcard from your area
a great cookie recipe
book or movie suggestions
odd pieces of silverware
glass or semiprecious beads
Confetti or glitter that goes everywhere when the envelope is opened!! Seriously- just NO.
Scraps of paper- I have BOXES of scraps
Label bags, decos, x-slips, fbs
Recipes unless it's a great cookie recipe or I join a specific recipe swap =)
religious items/ crosses, but I'm ok with receiving religious holiday cards
teacher reward, wedding/ baby/ graduation stickers
stick on tattoos
tea (I'm very allergic!)
anything with cigarette smell
lotions or perfume (allergies again)
any kind of food/ candy
stickers unless they're super nice/ unique or I'm in a sticker swap ( I DO love kawaii sticker flakes!)
notecards unless they're special or I'm in a notecards swap
Forever Friends bears
Anime & Manga (not obscene- lol)
Kawaii (see separate section on kawaii)
Winnie the Pooh
Mylo and friends
Alice in Wonderland
fantasy (dragons, elves, fairies, vampires)
This Is Us, Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, Master Chef, So You Think You Can Dance, Gilmore Girls, Golden Girls, Game of Thrones, Ink Master, Breaking Bad, Million Dollar Listings (all of them,) Project Runway, Home Town, Sherlock BBC, Call the Midwife, Grace and Frankie
I never played video games or anything when I was a child but I'm obsessed with Pokemon Go! I LOVE it!
I prefer postcards sent blank, in an envelope, to add to my collection. But if the swap is for naked, then Iâ€™m happy for those, too.
Some favorite subjects are:
* animals- any!
* anything autumn
* USA states
* the ocean
* any of my favorite characters listed
* any holiday, especially Halloween
* art (not crazy about portraits)
* flowers/ gardens
* covered bridges
* Greetings from...
* Studio Ghibli
I would love for you to send samples of tapes YOU like instead of you trying to match MY likes. I enjoy seeing what others find fun and beautiful. =)
I'm very allergic to cigarette smoke so please don't send smoky items.
I promise to rate quickly for every swap I receive!
My goal is to give each swap partner mail that makes them smile :)
Oh, and if by some chance you get mail from me with postage due, please let me know and I will immediately mail you the extra stamps or money! Or I can send you the difference through paypal. But please be honest about this and not take advantage of my offer if there really was no postage due. I'm very particular about putting enough postage and weigh and calculate prices on the USPS site. However, I know that things can happen and there are differences of opinion among postal workers, so....
Kawaii 101 for inquiring minds!
I love regular and mini note pads and loose sheets, envelopes, letter sheets, pencils, sticker flakes, buttons, deco and washi tapes, postcards if they exist (I've never seen any but who knows??) I love all the characters and themes except the poo ones, Zombitt, and the real children. I like the photo ones of animals and items, though! And all of these:
My newest love! â™¥ Jinbei San! â™¥
Hello Kitty â™¥
My Melody â™¥
Berry Puppy â™¥
Sentimental Circus â™¥
Kutusita Nyanko â™¥
Kinoko No Mori
kawaii kitties, puppies, bunnies, bears
older Sanrio characters
really any kawaii except Zombitt and poo. Really.
Just because it's not on this list doesn't mean I don't like it! I may have not seen it yet! :)
Quick hello back. =D
Thanks so much for the hello comment! You're in my thoughts when I'm tracking hurricanes. I hope we see more of you, with or without swaps.
Beth!!! So happy to see your comment on my profile. I've missed you. Hope you're doing well and keeping safe.
Always thinking of you! =D
Merry belated Christmas!! I greatly appreciate the compliment but you're also a contributing part of this so same to ya! ♥
OMG I wish I knew how to put pretty pretty pictures up here!!! Thank you SOOOOO MUCH!!! WHAT FUN I HAD TODAY!!! Sorry I cannot stop excitedly yelling! I must join some postcard swapping group. I already ordered a roll of 100 postcard stamps. Because OMG WOW THANK YOU! For anyone reading this on your profile, this generous lady just sent me a GIANT ASS BOX of postcards. I mean hundreds. Maybe a thousand or more. An RAK, no swap, she won't even let me pay her. She's amazing!!! I appreciate it so much!!! I just can't tell you!!!
Beth, thank you so much for contributing to one of my sticker flake bags in March 2018. I appreciate it and have received the sticker bag back.
