A little bit about me: My names M. I'm a born New Yorker, but I grew up in California, and i've got traveling in my soul. I love all things creative, artistic, unique and DIY, I'm involved in waaaaay too many fandoms,spend many hours on Tumblr, obsess over the perfect photograph and where to go eat, and basically i'm a weirdo who thinks she's pretty cool as well :D
I"m on here because I love snailmail (I'm been doing it for over 5 years now!), mail art, and penpalling. I have a couple of penpals already, but i'm always open for another if we've got a ton in common and you love mailart too :) (Some examples of my mail art are on my blog)
I do put tracking on all my swaps now (in the USA) and/or customs #'s are attached (for international swaps).
Currently the things I'm most interested in: Books and Blogs, traveling/roadtrips, scribbling furiously into my many notebooks, drawing random things I hope will one day be super-awesome things and always always, music!
I like sewing things, whether itâ€™s stuffed animals or clothes, and I like messing with mixed media projects. I love to draw, simple and complex things, mostly portrait based pieces. Photography is a old and new hobby, something I always come back to. I write,, as if my life depended on it somedays, poems, songs, short stories and stories I wish I could turn into more...one day i'll actually finish one, maybe?
