Before you Swap with me....

Hello! I'm just a silly girl born and raised in HOT Arizona. When I used to do swaps I would go above and beyond. If the requirements are to send three items, you'd receive well more than that from me because I wanted you to have a wonderful experience when partnered with me. I am a woman of integrity! When I commit to a swap event, you better believe that it will be sealed with love, sent with great pride, and delivered on time. Know that I've read your profile to see if I have anything that you might like and of course I pay attention as to not send things that you don't like. I've always done this for others, but somehow it seems that I'm I always partnered with someone who has some reason to send late or sometimes not at all. And sadly most times the envelopes I receive contain something thrown in without any care at all. An obvious unwanted item. It's very hurtful and discouraging. For that I definitely do not give Hearts or nice reviews. Honestly I'm just asking you to please send your swaps with Love and Kindness PLEASE. Not just for my swap but with everyone's mail that you send. It doesn't require you to spend money (other than correct postage) and you don't have to even be artistic to do the swap. If it was difficult, you would not have signed up for it, right?

How to have fun swapping with me:

  • Have FUN and enjoy what you do, you signed up for the swap for a reason and with hope, right? Let it shine!

  • Include a happy note about yourself. Please don't send a letter about death, surgeries, or other sadness. I don't know why people send me sad news like this when this is supposed to be Happy Mail. We are all going through hardships right now and need this swap for Happy Vibes not sad news.

  • Decorate your envelope. Make me excited to see your creativity.

So many things can make me smile from ear to ear. I don't require you to spend money or be artistic:

  • I love realistic looking things like honey bees, sparrows and robins perched on a branch, butterflies, and I love anything with real looking roses.

    • I absolutely love anything with big bows. And I love love love leopard print.

    • And here's a fun idea that I got from a friend... If you've read this far in my profile, my favorite number is 14. So here’s a fun Challenge for you: Try to incorporate the number 14 in your Happy Mail that you send to me. Let me see who is creative! Writing the number down is not creative. Creativity, kindness, and Happiness is key to winning my heart

Favorite Colors & Patterns

Even though my favorite color is White, I love lots of other BOLD contrasting colors!! Such as fun black polka dots dancing on a yellow background. Or big black and white stripes pared with bright pink roses. Pop! Wow! Speaking of Wow, leopard print is to die for! Dark and mysterious. Pare it with Blingy rhinestones and I am hooked! When it comes to White: imagine tonal off whites, with chalk board black, tied together with a brown jute string and a few sprigs of fresh greens. Refreshing! Clean! Don't forget about my favorite number 14.Think about how you can include 14 into your swap. Don't just write the number on a card. Here's your opportunity to be creative! Use your imagination and challenge yourself.


  • Disney
  • kawaii
  • anime
  • Anything cartoony
  • Take note that I do not celebrate Holidays.
  • witchy, mystic, fantasy is just not me
  • not fond of receiving religious items
  • please please please do not send me bits of scrap paper, old unwanted cards, or stickers cut up from a sheet where you took the ones you wanted from it and tossed me the cut outs of the ones you didn’t want. Hurtful but happens too often.

I love receiving things like:

  • glassine envelopes

  • rub on transfers

  • bows bows bows! I absolutely love Bows!!!

  • I prefer realistic looking things, not abstract, cartoon, watercolor. I love things that are real looking like flowers, bees, and perched birds.

  • lace or tulle samples are always needed at least 14 inches please

  • flower stickers that look real not cartoony

  • I'd really love to read an encouraging letter from you, please nothing sad. There's too much sadness around me.

  • I'd love to see how you like decorate your envelopes

  • show me your artistic style, hand made items warm my heart

  • I can't get enough chipboard pieces!

  • I love gourmet aromatic teas (not fruity) and rich flavored coffees. I'd really love to receive a tea pocket

  • I'd really like to receive keychains. Fuzzy ones are the best!

  • I love Roses but not the scent of roses

  • I'm in need of rubber stamps not acrylic stamps

  • I'm always in need of metal cutting dies, used is fine.

  • don't forget to use the number 14 in your swap somewhere!!! Do not just write it somewhere. Have fun with this challenge and use your imagination.

Things that make me cry:

Ok so here it goes. Here's my final rant. Keep in mind I've been doing swaps for many many years and I'm just explaining what I've found discouraging lately. Please don't be angry for my honesty....

  • When something is sent without CARE it shows and I don't think that deserves a good rate at all.

  • I would rather receive something that you made from the heart with items that you may have found at the Dollar Store, than receive a left over Dollar Store item from your pile that was just shoved in the envelope to give to the next victim who doesn't want it.

  • I really really really Dislike receiving pointless scraps of paper. There's no Heart or thought behind it. It confuses and upsets me. Sorry but it's true.

  • illegible handwriting

  • if your profile has a list of ABC Likes, it does not help me make the right gift for you. Example: someone might list "Candles" under the letter C. Well I can't very well send you a candle. So what do I do, send you a picture of a candle????

  • I'm part of many swap groups, please make sure to state which group you're sending from. If I don't know what I received from which group, I can't give you the credit you deserve for what you sent.

  • many people misspell my name and it hurts my feelings greatly. My older brother's name is similarly spelled and all while growing up I've had to put up with mail that was always opened first by him. How would you like it if I put someone else’s name on your things?

  • PLEASE do not send scrap pieces of unwanted paper. I’d rather you make something with it first, then send it. Or use it to decorate the outside of the envelope.

Always make your Swap worth your time and effort. Don't commit to something that your heart is not into.


When I send my swaps to my partners, I always read their profiles. If I believe we might have something in common, or I have allot of things that you stated that you like, I may include an S.A.S.E. with your package to stay connected to you. If you do not know what an S.A.S.E. is then just throw it away. But if you do know what it is and you would like to get more Happy Mail ...Yay! We are now friends!!

See you at the mailbox!

Comment: Heart for being such a thoughtful swapper. And especially thanks for the birthday card. It was a very good day. I don't list a lot of items I'm interested in receiving (but I LOVE the PCs you sent). I didn't join Swap-bot to receive stuff, it was to write to and hear from people from all over the US and also from other parts of the world. I love sending and receiving informational letters and I also love the question filled swaps both to receive and send. Other things may be delightful but they aren't the point.

Comment: Thanks! There's an envelope in there addressed to you with a stamp, I'm not really sure what it's for?
Response: Oh my! I put allot into this particular swap and I even customized it to your likes. I’m sad that after all that time and effort it did not earn your heart. I guess I really really really have to try harder and harder next time. The enclosed envelope is an S.A.S.E. If you’re not familiar with an S.A.S.E. please disregard it. No worries friend.
Comment: Thank you so much
Comment: All kinds of unique & fun items in my envie -- much thanks.
