About Me

I love making and sending happy mail. My postage stash is kind of epic. I stock up whenever the post office gets new postage artwork that I like. It turns out this happens a lot. Haha!

I’m a bit of a planner nerd. I have lots of planners and enough planner stickers and washi tape for a lifetime. There’s no such thing as too many stickers or washi, if you ask me.

I take lots of photos are mostly with my phone but sometimes with my Canon or Instax. I love naps, family adventures, mail, books and coffee. These are my hobbies. I write every day. I love to write almost as much as I love coffee.

My husband and I have two living children. Miles is 6 and Aurelia is 4. It's lots of fun, mountains of laundry, and buckets of coffee around here. I apologize in advance for my poor penmanship.

If time and money were limitless, I would take every art class available and learn all the things! I also love to read. I'm in the Book of the Month club and I love it. I've discovered so many authors and novels thanks to BOTM. If you're interested, you can read more about it here: https://www.mybotm.com/aighwdgg6j7i7ldi

My favorite places to shop/browse are Target, Michaels, Etsy and Paper Source. I work part-time as an Editorial Consultant at a local college. I’m also a contributing writer for Dallas Moms Blog.

  • stationery/notecards/postcards
  • flake stickers - I loooooooove them
  • kawaii stationery and office supplies are always welcome
  • I love all colors, but prefer primary colors
  • planner stickers and supplies are always welcome, especially from The Happy Planner

Styles/images I like...

If you're wondering what themes I like, here's a little list:





Odds are I'll like whatever you choose to send but these are some of my favorites.

No Thanks

  • fabric and yarn (already have too much)
  • religious items (If it's a Christmas swap, it's fine.)
  • please don't send food. But coffee and tea are welcome
  • please save the paper napkins and loose bits of paper for someone else; not really my thing
  • not a fan of loose glitter. I love sparkles but if a glittery card sheds, it ends up getting all over everything

I am allergic to animal fibers so please no wool, rabbit hair, etc.

Destash freebies

I'm (still) trying to destash and you can help! If you would like an envie full of happy, send me a message with your address and I'll get an envelope of mail goodies sent your way. Thanks!
