I enjoy all types of Christmas cards, even glittery ones as long as the glitter doesn't shed off of the card and make a mess!
Hello! My name is Heidi and I am a 22-year-old college student living in the Lone Star state of Texas! 🤠I'll be graduating on December 11 with my BA in communication studies and a minor in consumer experience management.
I live a zero waste / eco minimalist lifestyle. If possible, please reuse some scrap paper for letters or to be upcycled into an envelope- thank you!
I LOVE the color pink💖 (it's my favorite color), hot air balloons 🎈, rainbows🌈, and strawberries🍓! If you send me anything with those on it I will love it!
I'm the founder of the International Stamp Collectors group, check it out and join in if you enjoy postage stamps
If you're sending a postcard, I tend to like these themes. If you could send a touristy postcard from the place that you live, those are my absolute favorites! I also love....
⛪️Chapels / churches / monasteries (photos, paintings, drawings, all types)
🎈Hot air balloons
💌Postcrossing (meetups, Postcrossing themed, etc.)
🌈Rainbows or rainbow colored things
✨Special postcards (cork, wood, lenticular, shaped, seed packet, things like that)
For postage stamps, here are some themes I like: (used/mint, on/off paper, any country) Feel free to send me your damaged stamps, I use them for craft projects :)
🍏Fruits and vegetables
🎈Hot air balloons
✨Special stamps (lenticular, clear, shiny, gold foiling, etc.)
My boyfriend Nick also collects postage stamps and participates in stamp swaps with me, if you're wondering why some return address labels have both of our names on them :)

I always send my swaps out either by the due date or right after partners are assigned! If you live in the US, please let me know if you haven't received my swap 2 weeks after the deadline. If you are international, feel free to send me a message if it's been a while and you haven't received anything. I know with the pandemic there's a lot going on with the postal service in everyone's countries! :)
Feel free to send me a message if you're a newbie and would like to do a private swap with me, I know it can be hard to get ratings under your belt when you first join.
Just a few special things I've been looking for!
Anything witchy (besides Harry Potter) / pagan / wiccan, as I am a Christian and just not into those things. I am okay with confetti as long as it isn't teeny tiny, but please do not send me loose glitter as my pet rabbit could get into it.
Other than that, I'm not picky at all! Send me whatever makes you smile, it'll probably make me smile, too!
Letter updates for pen pals! Don't hesitate to send me a message if you would like to start a pen pal friendship with me 😊
