Hello! My name is Ilyse. I'm 64, have been married for 35 years and I'm mom to 2 grown kids, who are still my "babies". I've been pen-palling and swapping all my life and love it!

I love to travel and look forward to the day we can do so safely again! Till then, I'm happy to meet people via snail mail, online and on social!

I live in Virginia, on the east coast of the US...we're 2 hours inland from the Atlantic Ocean, 2 hours south of Washington, DC, and 2 hours east of the mountains.

I sell software and digital signage for VISIX, and I'm a YOUNG LIVING distributor. I'm passionate about living a healthy lifestyle!

In case you're wondering...My name is pronounced the same way as 'what you sign when you rent an apartment': A-LEASE. Now you know 😁 us

Things I love

10/2020 - I’m back to swapping Friendship Books, Sticker books and Slams. I prefer "High Quality" or "Nice & Neat" FBs -- No sloppy books with jagged edges please. No label bags, lyrics, FSS, etc.. Thanks for sending nice books - I will do the same!

I ❀️ Summer, hot weather, beaches, lighthouses, tropical flowers, palm trees, trade winds, volcanoes and anything Hawaiian.

Christian themes are welcome. Scripture, devotionals, journals.

ATC's, Postcards, Pretty stationery.

Anything wine-themed or coffee-themed!

Dogs & puppies, sloths, kittens, pandas, giraffes, owls, deer, eagles, sea life, birds and butterflies.

Handmade things with extra love!

Motivational or cute sayings, stickers, ephemera, stationery, planner and scrapbook supplies, journal supplies, Washi tape.

Papyrus, Rifle Paper Company, Lantern Press, Mary Englebreit, Suzy's Zoo, Hallmark, Dayspring, Punch Studio, Anna Griffin, Current, Life is Good.

Other Interests: Scrabble, business networking, computer-geek stuff and photography. I spend way too much time on social media! Look me up!

Postcards

I ❀️ postcards!

**Beaches and tropical scenes

**The Northern Lights

**Hot-air balloons

**Mountains

**Rock-climbing and hiking

**Lantern Press cards

**Lighthouses

**Typography and Graphic Design

**Pretty churches, castles and historic buildings

**Children playing

**Animals

**City skylines

**Handmade art cards welcome

Not a fan of vintage postcards, unless they're from Hawaii.

Favorite Television

This Is Us, New Amsterdam, A Million Little Things, The Rookie, Mrs. Maisel, Call The Midwife, Gray's Anatomy, Chicago Fire/Med, Hawaii 5-0, Shark Tank, Catfish, all the HGTV stuff and House Hunters or Buying Hawaii/Hawaii Life. And, don't ask why, but Married at First Sight, The Bachelor and Bachelorette too.

Dislikes

Please note - I'm very sensitive to cigarette smells and can't receive swaps that have a strong odor.

Kiddie, reward or tiny stickers, poor quality notecards, dark-themed or evil things, out-of-season holiday items, candy or snacks. I don't do Halloween, but I love Fall and Thanksgiving.

The Golden Rule

Please rate promptly - I promise to do the same!

When I host swaps, I promise to angel any not received. I check profiles and swapping history, as well as rating consistency before assigning partners.

Good communication is key. If you're going to miss a deadline, let me know. I prefer quality over quantity and believe in accountability. If you don't receive something from me, or if you have a question about a swap I host or participate in, please PM or email me.

Overall, I'm easy to please and almost always enjoy and appreciate everything my swap partners share!

I’m having a lot of fun with ATCs and trying new things and I’m blown away by the talent people share here!

Thank you to all who uphold high standards and who share my values about this great site!

Comment: We are all ready to be done with this covid nonsense, I have had cabin fever since the cold weather started, it made me start hibernating, I only go out for food and doctors... I do my church online (kind of getting used to sitting there in sweats with a cup of coffee and watching it now)
Response: Mee tooooooo! Thanks for the nice comments and the heart :)
