I will not be participating in swaps from July 15, 2022 to August 15 2022. I will be moving from Texas to Iowa!

Hello! My name is Heidi and I live in the Lone Star state of Texas! 🤠I graduated on December 11 with a BA in communications and a minor in consumer experience management. I love hamsters, and recently welcomed a new hamster into my life named Frank :)

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 recently started making / collecting ATCs. If you would like to send one as an extra or do a swap for one, I would love to.

I'm the founder of the International Stamp Collectors group, check it out and join in if you enjoy postage stamps

Tea 🫖☕️

* Fruit-flavored (blueberry, orange, strawberry, etc.)
* Novelty (gingerbread, lemon loaf, Canada maple syrup, etc.)

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!

Foxtales rated for Cereal Box Only Postcard #5 on May 21, 2022
Comment: Your postcard is so much fun! ^^ The shape, all the cute stickers, the stamps, everything! The closest thing to Honey Bunches of Oats we have here are Honey Loops. I tried them once when I was a little girl (in a time where dinosaurs still roamed the earth), and I think I didn't like them. We don't have such a variety in cereals in my country, mostly a few different cereals and then 1-2 knock-off brand versions, each store has their own. Thank you so so much for the postcard! I still need to find a way to keep it safe, it won't fit into my postcard box. :D
