About Me

Hey y'all! My name is Amanda and I'm 30 years old. I live in the United States - Missouri to be exact, just about 30 minutes away from the Gateway Arch. I am single, childless, but play mother to a green cheek conure and a sassy orange tabby cat that I call Tater. I currently work as an Office Administrative Assistant at a car dealership and have been in that industry for about 12 years.

-That Weird or Slightly Offensive Card

I am not picky on if they are sent "naked" or in envelopes, all I care about is the message you write. Feel free to share your favorite quote, tell me about yourself, share a recipe (desserts are my favorite,) or tell me a secret. You can share historical facts, fun facts, make a word search on it, write in secret code (as long as you send the "key" to decipher it.) Or share anything else you feel comfortable with. Tell me your favorite song lyric, write a poem, or share an excerpt from a book you're reading. Make a list of books, favorite authors, favorite movies or songs; I'll be happy regardless (:

Just please do NOT send ad cards, color yourself cards, or handmade/home printed cards. While I can appreciate anyones artwork, I really prefer to keep my postcard collection store-bought. I hope you understand (:

What I've Got To Offer

I have all kinds of things available for swap! Some of these things include Stickers, Sticky Notes, Embellishments, Washi, Paper Samples, Book Pages, Paper Clips, PocketLetters, ATC's, Buttons, Project Life Cards, Die Cuts, Postcards, and so on. I am also willing to do one-on-one trades - themed, Random, senders choice, Specific items, a mixture of items, etc. In addition, I very much enjoy email swaps, so I'm always up for those if you are! If you're interested in a swap or wonder if I have something you may be looking for, just shoot me a message and I'll take a look. I'm sure we can work out something!

How I Swap

I, like everyone else, join USA Regional swaps (and International swaps from time to time) that I'm interested in and I frequently check in on them for updates and changes. I look through the list of participants before partners are assigned and check everyone's profile. If any problem or questionable members are included, I will avoid joining the swap. (I refuse to join a swap if any members have blocked me - this will impede communication later on and cause greater issues.) If all looks good, I'll join. When a swap allows me to prepare before partners are assigned, I do. I like to get swaps ready to be mailed as soon as I am able! I mark swaps as "Sent" as soon as they hit the mailbox or post office - when they are out of my hands, they are "sent." Because things may be placed in my mailbox at home, and then picked up by the mail carrier, the postmark on it may be dated a day or two off from my "sent" date. For example, If I place something in the mailbox on Sunday, it will be picked up Monday but may not be postmarked and dated until Tuesday. I don't even pay attention to the postmark when I receive something because it is so unreliable and rarely accurate. If something happens and the swap isn't as expected or it doesn't arrive in what you feel is a reasonable time, please message me before leaving a rating and I will do my best to rectify the situation. I do generally add extras to all of my swaps as well, so I very highly doubt you'll be disappointed (; When I receive a swap, I try to rate it the same day! If for some reason I accidentally forget to rate you, just shoot me a message and I'll be sure to do so. If I haven't received a rating from you, I'll most likely reach out to make sure you received your end from me and remind you to leave a little rating. It's the polite thing to do (: And I generally always leave a comment and give hearts when I receive extras or if the swap went above and beyond my expectations!

For your Information

I keep a physical journal of ALL swaps I participate in that include the following information:

-Swap Name and Hosts Username/Name

-Signup Dates and Send By Dates

-Name of ALL Participants and MY Partners as well as their Physical Street Address and their Email Address.

-Dates I Mail Out/Dates I Receive

-Date I Rate/Date I Receive Rating

-Names of Problem Swappers, Questionable Swappers, Non-Raters, Non-Hearters and a description of the Issue/Situation.

Comment: Thank you for sharing. I think I also would not tell anyone about my lottery win too. It is so sweet that you will take care of your beloved ones. My plans would be similar. Pay off depts, put aside money for my kids and for the time when I am retired. Maybe buy a nice apartment, travel and donate.

Ask Me Anything ~ESwap #9 I joined a swap hosted by her and I wasn't rated yet so she had to drop me. However, right after that we were paired up in this swap and we laughed at how funny that was. Turns out she gave me my first rating and a star. Now I can participate in her swaps and we've learned a lot about each other! Swapping is a great way to make friends and I'm glad things are working out wonderfully well.

A big hello from the heart of Texas! We are sweltering here this week, but it is Texas after all. Bone baking heat is a given as we struggle our way into Fall. I hope this finds you cool and comfy.
