Christmas Cards 🎄

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!

About Me 👩🏼

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!

♻️Read more about the zero waste lifestyle here

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

Tea 🫖☕️

*I love tea! I try to drink a cup every day and I've loved "tasting the world" through the teas that other lovely swappers have sent to me. Some of my favorites have been:
* Fruit-flavored (blueberry, orange, strawberry, etc.)
* Novelty (gingerbread, lemon loaf, Canada maple syrup, etc.)
* Floral (lavender, chamomile, hibiscus, rose, jasmine)
* David's tea, for some reason I struggle to find it here in Texas!

I have no tea dislikes besides licorice

Swapping With Me ✉️

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.

Wishlist ✨

Just a few special things I've been looking for!

  • "Please deliver to" labels for writing addresses
  • Any magazine cutouts / magazine pages
  • Strawberry, blueberry, or orange flavored teas
  • Blank postcards
  • Paw Patrol, Winnie the Pooh, or Frozen stickers; I have a 3-year-old niece (Alivia) who jumps for joy when Aunt Heidi sends her fun-looking mail :)

🚫Please avoid sending...

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!

📬Pen Pals

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 😊
