About Me 👩🏼

Update (8/22): I recently moved from Texas to Iowa. If you need my new address, please send me a message!

(11/22): Thank you to all of my swap friends for praying for a full-time job for me! I will be a plasma technician at a blood donation center starting in January 2023. I'm beyond excited and grateful, this is the job that I really wanted! Next February, my International Stamp Collectors group will be up and running again and I will join more international swaps!

Hello! My name is Heidi and I've loved being here on swap-bot for the past few years. I graduated from college in December of 2021. I have a little bunny named Dumbledore (or Dumby for short) and a long-haired blonde hamster named Pancake.

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!

For Christmas Cards🎄: I like any type of Christmas card. Handmade, store-bought, religious, I love them all! Glitter is okay as long as it doesn't easily fall loose

Tea 🫖☕️

* Fruit-flavored (blueberry, orange, strawberry, etc.)
* Floral (lavender, chamomile, hibiscus, rose, jasmine)
* David's tea, for some reason I struggle to find it

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 / stationery / postcards. 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 pets 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!

Comment: Thank you so much sharing such funny videos ! I had a really good giggle. I esp. loved the Christmas candle. Because I went though something similar some years back. Only it was a regift to me. A friend (so called) gave me back the gift I gave her a year before. She did it out of spite. I never did anything to her. So, I never understood why she did it. But we aren't friends anymore. Anyway, Thank you again.😀
