About Me

Update 5/29/2024--- I am mainly doing private swapping at this point in time due to internet security concerns. However, I have a lot of excess (books, bags, etc.) to move along, so PLEASE message me if you are interested in receiving some!

Hi! I'm Rivi, I'm a preschool teacher and writer in Berkeley, California (USA).

Mental Health Advocate. Neurodivergent (ADHD/Autism). Preschool Teacher. Jewish. Type 4 Enneagram. INFP. Avid Knitter. Pisces. Planner Lover. Ace/Demisexual. Ravenclaw. Creative Writer. Old Soul.

I'm super crafty and creative, and love writing and sending happy mail.

I always send out my swaps on time, so if you haven't received something from me, please let me know/reach out so I can resend.

If there is an issue with postage, message me and I will venmo or paypal any costs. I can also mail you USPS stamps to balance out the cost, and I will send more than what is owed when I do it that way (I have a lot of extra postage! I love to collect new and pretty stamps)

I'm not picky about my dislikes; if I get something I can't use I will just pass it along.

Happy Mail and Swapping

I love swapping and happy mail! I am always looking for new penpals and swappers.

I just started doing friendship sheets and friendship books. I will happily return any and all homers-- send them my way! (I know a lot of the swaps have a limit on how many homers you can send-- no limit for me)

I have a lot of excess of bags, books, and sheets! If you are looking to get started swapping friendship books, friendship sheets, label bags, sticker bags, memo bags, etc. message me and I will happily send you some of my excess.

Since I am a preschool teacher, I am happy to take any of those kiddie/reward stickers off your hands to use in my classroom. (I prefer regular decorative stickers for journaling, but I know a lot of people don't like the kiddie stickers and I am happy to receive them)

traceyj rated for UHM: Pick A Theme Mail Art on Apr 10, 2024
Comment: hi Rivi, thank you for resending after that postage issue, I am assuming your first decorated envelope was destroyed so I will happily accept this plainer envelope filled with cheery happy-mail (such a fun little flipbook with lots of profile-based goodies!). And even though it was technically sent 'late' I can cut you a break on that for being in the hospital (so glad you are ok!) - let's hope the rest of your year goes smoothly without any more unexpected hiccups :) 💌💛

Response: Thank you! I will check it, I've been dealing with some family issues recently and so I've been away from my computer. I'll respond as soon as I can!

Hey Rivi, I'm reaching out here again because the message I sent March 11th about postage due on a swap I received is still unread, it looks like.

I hope everything's ok with you and that you're able to enjoy a well-deserved spring break (if preschool teachers get a spring break). I noticed it's been a while since you signed in and your UHM: Pick a Theme swap is still marked unsent--I'm your assigned partner and just wanted to check in with you on that; please message me when you get a chance. Thanks!

Myself333 on Mar 20, 2024:

Hey Rivi, check your messages when you sign back in pretty please! Thanks :)

Hey girl …!
I just wanted to let you know that I saw you were chosen as my partner for the Slam swaps…. And I wanted to let you know that ….
If you were still interested in PenPalling / Swapping with me …. You can just send the slams with your “First” - you don’t need to send 2 separate bits of Happy Mail…. Lol 😝!
(But …. If you already sent out and I just haven’t received it , or otherwise don’t have the time to send out a First Letter at the moment , just disregard this comment - lolol 😝 !)
Regardless I’m going to send you a slam swap in return for yours when it’s received - Okay…!!!?

MWMBpageants on Feb 16, 2023:

I’ve been spotting you across some FBs I’ve been receiving , lol..! Your labels are so cute! I’m going to send you another Swap- if you don’t mind …?!
