About Me

7/2020-After taking a break from Swap-Bot, I am back. I'm mainly interested in book and postcard swaps for now. My boys are now 19 and 20 and attend college. We lost our two Boxers to cancer and an accident. We have a new Boxer, Aria who is one year old.

I’m a mother of two teenagers (16 & 17) living in a small town. I also have two Boxers. I love to read, create mail art, take pictures, and hang out with family and friends. I can't survive without coffee. I try to treat others the way I would want to be treated. I love everything that has to do with snail mail and stationery.

Favorite Music

My taste in music ranges from "you need to listen to this" to "I know, please don't judge me." Al Green, Otis Redding, Adele, Gwen Stefani, Twenty One Pilots, Maroon 5, Blake Shelton, Marvin Gaye, Bruno Mars....the list goes on.

Favorite Crafts

Scrapbooking and junk journaling.

Favorite Television

My current favorites are Queen Sugar, The Voice, Mayans, Law and Order, Dateline, House of Dragon, Succession, and Yellowstone. Past favorites were 24, Big Bang Theory, Peaky Blinders, Ozark, This Is Us, Being Mary Jane, Nashville, & Scandal.

Favorite Postcards

Themes I like

Lou Paper Cards

Lantern Press cards

Game of Thrones

Art by Mario Sanchez

Postallove greetings (I’m starting my collection over)

Postcards of your photography,

Humming Birds,



Royalty (My name means "Queen" in Spanish.)

Anything Marvel

Street art, Banksy

Fountain pens, letters and journals

Books, Jane Mount Bibliophile, reading, or writing

Mail, airmail, or postal themes

If you need a topic to write about, I would love a book recommendation or your favorite book quote.

Wish list

You don't need to send me anything just to include something with the original swap. I won’t rate down for not receiving “extras”. If this happens to be a swap where you are required to include something extra I’ve listed some likes below.

My favorite things are

  • any ephemera for junk journaling
  • notecards with envelopes
  • unused non-touristy postcards
  • bookmarks
  • anything air-mail, travel, postal themed or envelope seal stickers
  • Washi Samples-I have access to Hobby Lobby so any themes from other (online) stores would be appreciated.
  • doll/girl/people stickers like La Dolce Vita or Capital Chic designs or similar ones.
  • anything Baby Yoda, Marvel

*Vintage playing cards


Please take the time to rate me and I will do the same for you. If for some reason you are missing my rating, please feel free to contact me so we can resolve this matter quickly. My goal is to get swaps completed so they can be archived in a timely manner.
