Hello!

My name is Lindsey & I live near the coast of beautiful Lake Michigan.

I've been sending happy mail via swap-bot for over five years now. It brings me lots of joy to receive mail from friends across the country and the world.

Fun facts:

  • I have two pet rabbits named Leo and Lucy.

  • I love caring for house plants! I am nowhere near an expert, but my skillset has definitely grown as I have come to have quite the collection, especially throughout the last few years.

  • I love writing to penpals and postcard pals, check out my Instagram (linked above) if you'd like to see some of the mail art I create.

  • During my undergrad, I worked on campus at the library I worked there all 4 years (plus most summers in between) and I LOVED it! Libraries will always hold a special place in my heart.


Favorite books & genres:

Currently, I am re-reading the Harry Potter series. I first read them back in the 5th grade and now decided all these years later to revisit them. They are just as magical (or even more so) as before!

If you'd like to follow my profile on goodreads.com

I love historical fiction, mystery, and non-horror thriller genres, but also love a feel-good novel or memoir.


Favorite movies & TV shows:

  • Pride and Prejudice (2005 version),
  • The King's Speech
  • The Wedding Singer
  • Seinfeld (my #1 favorite show - always!)
  • Everybody Loves Raymond
  • Home Improvement

Favorite music:

  • U2 !!!
  • Harry Styles
  • The Beatles
  • Coldplay
  • The Killers
  • The 1975

I have many other favorites and listen to a pretty wide range of artists within my favorite genres. 1980's new wave/rock/alternative rock will always have a special place in my heart.

Things I love:

Some of my favorite themes include:

  • abstract, colorful, collage

  • mid century & retro

  • whimsical or unique

  • different shades of the same color

  • nature & botanical

  • historical & geographical

  • paper collage


Here are some of my favorite types of stickers:

  • pipsticks or stickii club brand

  • holiday "american greetings" brand sheets

  • words & short phrases

  • vintage or vintage-looking

  • whimsical or unique

  • floral, botanical, woodland/nature themed

  • geometric, shapes, abstract, or patterns

  • hearts & stars

  • circles, especially love the kind with patterns

  • larger size labels to use for addresses on outgoing mail. I especially love the die-cut ones with unique edges!

  • animals

  • stickers featuring people


  • anything from or inspired by my etsy wishlist

  • any mail art created by you! I especially love collage envelopes

  • flipbooks and paper pockets: I love receiving handmade flipbooks & other similar crafty items, even if they don't have a theme! Feel free to tuck whatever you want or think I would like into the pockets!

  • handmade envies (mailable size and using sturdy paper are great!)

  • MT brand washi tape

  • KITTA brand washi tape strips


Some of my favorite types of postcards:

  • unique cityscapes and landscapes - I love European touristy cards!

  • patterns/shapes/abstract

  • unique artwork/illustration


  • USPS postage stamps! unused please, & any amount / style is fine! I do use vintage postage as well as more recent stamps.

  • anything cut out from FLOW magazine or similar papercraft magazines

  • personalized return address labels (loving the smaller & tiny ones at the moment!)

  • swap info cards to send along in my swap-bot envelopes

  • art prints or illustrations (to hang on my bedroom walls!)

  • tim holtz, crate paper, simple stories, & echo park brand anything

  • art made by you! I especially love collage pieces, mini zines, handmade cards, sticker sheets, & memo sheets/sticky notes.

Dislikes:

​​These are some types of items that I would rather not receive:

  • tea bags (I am not a tea drinker)
  • teacher/reward type/cheap stickers
  • tiny plain paper bits
  • horror/gory/gross anything
  • strong smells/smoke smells
  • glitter/confetti in envelopes
  • political-themed items
  • stained or dirty items
  • prejudiced/discriminatory anything

Other info:

  • I will try my best to add personal touches to my swaps, whether it’s something mentioned from your profile or a common interest or a cute sticker or two on your PC. I’m thankful for anything I receive through swap-bot.

  • I mark sent after I drop mail into the big blue postal boxes or put it in my mailbox in the morning. If you happen to not receive a swap from me, be sure to message me and I will always be willing to resend it!

  • I always send on time and make sure it has correct postage, but please understand that sometimes mail can get lost! Be sure to let me know if there are any issues, and I will work hard to resolve them. I hope you'll do the same for me.

  • I will always be open to adjusting ratings if you message me and are willing to work things out. I know life gets in the way sometimes and no one is perfect, just please be open to talking about what happened and I will be happy to adjust my rating if I feel that is the right thing to do!

  • This site is above everything else supposed to spread joy and kindness through the act of sending physical mail, I want my account (especially) to be treating people with the same kindness I would also like to receive!

THANK YOU for taking the time to read my profile; happy swapping!
