About Me

My name is Holly, I'm 24 and career-oriented. I love lots of things, some of them being fat books, cozy sweaters, adult beverages, Netflix marathons, new places, fun cookbooks, glitter and hobby jumping. I have strong opinions about faith, politics and just about everything, but I expect you to absolutely not care about my opinions at all.

I have loved to penpal since I was about 12 years old. I am always up to accepting a new penpal, but I have a few requirements to keep us from wasting our time.

  • Must be at least 20+

  • Must write first

  • Must be looking for a long-term penpal relationship, not just a few letters here and there.

And that's it! :)

Flaking & Rating

I DO NOT LIKE FLAKERS. IT IS STEALING. Therefore, I do not flake. If you have not received something from me, let me know. My post office is sometimes quite slow. Also, I always rate when I receive, so PLEASE do me the same courtesy.

Current Non-Raters:

@fruitbat5150 for Adventures of the Traveling PC R18

@queencordy18 for Adventures of the Traveling PC R19

@crafts4me for Traveling Letter Round #8

@CrystalTenshi for NH: Basic Profile Surprise Swap

Tag Flakers:

@lillianmarie for US Tag Aficionados 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 Tag


I absolutely love collecting and hoarding craft/scrapbooking/journaling/ATC/mail art/mixed media supplies! I love it when people send me their leftover supplies, no matter what it is. One person's trash is another person's treasure!

Although I love crafting, I'm a bit of an amateur (or at least I think I am). I do some ATCs, some crocheting, some mail art, some scrapbooking, some painting, but I'm not dedicated solely to one crafting medium. I'm always up for a new project!


I only dislike receiving a few things -

  • Items featuring cats (except for Halloween black cats, they're okay)
  • The color yellow (like neon yellow, pastel is okay)
  • Items geared towards younger kids (I don't need anymore kid-themed stickers, please, unless they're Barbie or Disney princess)
  • Patriotic themes
  • Teacher/Reward stickers
  • Spicy foods/smells
  • Masculine items

Comment: Thank you, nice snowman card! Merry Christmas to you too!
Comment: Thank you for the funny Christmas card, it really made me laugh. And no, we don't spend Christmas on the beach, although I sometimes do wonder why we are roasting turkey breasts and vegetables in the middle of summer...
Comment: Thank you for the candycane Christmas card, it’s when I don’t have. We have very little snow and unusually warm weather, but I’m sure the snow will come just as Christmas will. Sadly I don’t actually have a favourite Christmas movie, maybe I’ll start watching some this weekend and see if I can find one 😀
