About Me

Hello, my name is Ellen! I'm in my late 20s, I'm married, I'm an animal lover, I have 4 pets!

As of Jan 2021, I'm officially in Remission!!

I love to eat and I love candy, gummies (apple, strawberry, cola), and snacks :D

If i'm in a gift swap and you don't know what to get me, snacks are always liked! My favorite flavors are strawberry, apple, chocolate; I like savory things too!

I really love to travel. Always looking for International Penpals!

My favorite animal is the Dragon, favorite color is blue, I don't enjoy coffee but I am all about tea! Christmas is my favorite holiday, I love the Christmas themed postage stamps!

I love gardening, sewing, knitting, quilting, painting (oils and acrylics), drawing, scrapbooking, papercrafting, all things crafty! I'm a board game and video game fanatic!

Big Nintendo fan :D I collect Pokemon Cards still!

I use penpalmanager.com to keep track of my pen pals, swaps (from all different sites), and letters!


I like YA, Fantasy, horror, thriller, Folk lore, Fairy Tales...I'm a huge Harry Potter fan (Slytherin here)!

OI, Manhwa, Webtoons

Things I like

I love to collect things! I collect cute stationery, washi tape, Pressed Pennies, All things Animal Crossing, cats, dragons, Pokemon...

I really like Kawaii things (like memo sheets, stickers, washi, letter sets, etc) and i'm not too picky :)

non-sheet face masks, candles, moomin cups,

...I adore anything Gudetama and cats!

Tea: I will enjoy most teas, but I don't like minty, herbal, or chai kinds! I don't drink any of those. Fruity ones are well enjoyed. I LOVE pickwick, Karel Capek brand, Lupicia Brand too.

I love hot chocolate, hot cocoa, any kind!

I love seeing those postage Moon landing stamps, the new Sun Science stamps (so cool), T Rex stamps, and Halloween/spooky silhouette stamps on envelopes!


I'm allergic to blueberries, pumpkin, and pineapples > <

I don't really like: Sheet face masks


Chai, Mint Tea, Herbal Tea

Dark Chocolate

smoky items or perfumes, the smell is so strong and gives me a headache

Religious Items

kiddie/baby items

I don't need pencils/markers/pens unless they're gel pens

I think I have enough journals now to last me a lifetime haha, too many to use

If you do not receive my swap, please tell me and we will get it fixed! If you do not contact me, how will I know?

Happy New Year! It's February but I wanted you to know just how much I'm enjoying the fabric coaster you made for me back in the WIYM: Stuff the Stocking - October swap. It's still on my desk in the studio, being used daily and I think of you and your talents & generosity every single time I use it. Woo Hoo! The gift that keeps on giving. Love it!
