About Me

Heya! My name is Lea, I’m a 24 year old graphic designer/tea fiend/huge nerd/Librarian-in-Training from Richmond, VA.

I love books, reading, writing, and my job at the library! I have a ton of varied interests, including but not limited to:

  • Papercrafts
  • D&D
  • Cooking
  • Baking
  • Reading & Writing
  • Board Games
  • Plants
  • Tea & Coffee
  • Star Trek
  • Studio Ghibli
  • Thrifting
  • Scuba Diving
  • Travel
  • Cosplay

Favorite Music

Lo-fi chillhop beats to relax/study to, Folk, Filk!, Punk, Metal, Alt

P.S. I want to learn more about KPOP but idk where to start!

Favorite Books

  • The Long Way To a Small, Angry Planet
  • Get In Trouble
  • North American Lake Monsters
  • Sci Fi Anthologies
  • Uprooted
     

Aesthetic, Likes & Dislikes

  • Overall, I would say my aesthetic is vintage and modern combined. I love the juxtaposition!
  • I love plants, nature, space, witchy stuff, cats, tea, and books, so anything with those motifs always makes me super happy!
  • Sharks are my favorite animal! I also really like possum, raccoon, and cat motifs
  • I am OBSESSED with Pusheen the Cat
  • My birthday is in October, I love the fall, and Halloween is my favorite holiday! I appreciate Halloween and fall-themed stuff year-round.

  • I love cryptids, especially mothman - I have several cryptid pins, mothman mugs, and even made an intro to cryptids zine! (P.S. Now I made a cryptid swap group, check it out!
  • I like goth aesthetic stuff, eldritch horror stuff, ghosts, monsters, paranormal, general spookiness~
  • Cottage core is also great!!
  • My favorite colors are black, purples, blues, and greens, and metallics. But I love all colors! I think monochromatic color palettes are super cool, and I also like rainbows.
  • I love graphic design, type elements, and illustrative lettering. Jessica Hische and Aaron Draplin are two of my favorite graphic designers today, and I am fascinated by vintage branding/packaging/type.
  • I don't mind inappropriate or snarky designs! (I thrifted this set of postcards for 10c and I am in love: Baron Von Fancy)

 

Dislikes:

  • I don't really like paisley
  • Not into "shabby chic" designs, if you make something for me with this aesthetic I'm sure I will love it, but if it's just supplies I will probably pass it along to someone else
  • No planner items, please! I don't really use them
  • No rose scents or flavours
  • No skincare products (except from Lush, I have sensitive skin and that's the only brand that doesn't make me break out)
  • Not a big fan of plain chamomile teas (which is funny because I have a chamomile tattoo)
     

Deco Books

I recently got into these & I'm already obsessed. Message me if you want to set up a swap, or if you even want to offload a bunch of decos - I'm happy to take them on! Last signers are fine by me.

Allergies

I'm allergic to dairy, and I am not a fan of rose scented or flavoured things. Sorry! I like it in theory, but it's just not my thing (it gives me a headache).

I keep a (mostly) vegan diet, but I'm not terribly strict about it.

Comment: Thank you for the insightful reading - I definitely have some things to think on. I have been working towards a goal lately so it was good to get some outside perspective on that. I also really love the paper you used, and the protector sticker! Blessings and again, thank you!

Welcome to Weirder Every Day!

Hi Lea!

We are partners for the Cryptif Profil Deco #1. I picked the chupacabra for my cryptid. I have fond memories of my grandma sending all her grandkids to bed with supernatural stories of her childhood in the countryside of Mexico. My favorite was always the tale of the chupacabra.

Sorry for the late send. I mixed up the deadline for a later date.

Here's an extra. Sorry again for the tardiness! It's a pic of a baby Peryton!
