About Me

I love making and sending happy mail. My stamp 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 take lots of photos – 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 also write every day. I love to write almost as much as I love coffee. 😄

My husband and I have two living children. Miles is 5 and Aurelia is 2. 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!

My favorite places to shop/browse are Etsy, Paper Source and Target. I work part-time as an Editorial Consultant at a local college. I'm also Social Media Director for a local artist collective.

  • 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

Styles/images I like...

If you're wondering what type of stationery, postcards, etc. themes I'll like, here's a little list:




Bright and primary colors





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 for someone else; not really my thing
  • not a big 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.

Special notes

I got a PC that reads "Greetings from Slovakia!" but there's no swap title and no name signed. If this was from you, let me know so I can rate you! 😊💌

Comment: First off, I'm very sorry for the late rating! Secondly, I LOVE this "Penguin Cookery Book" pc! I do like cooking and baking, but I don't do it very often. I don't have any Kitchen Common Sense, so while I love to follow recipes, if the instructions are off in any way, I don't know enough to recognize that and so disasters ensue. (I once almost set my kitchen on fire; "heat pan, add oil" . . . if it hadn't been for that glaze put on the wooden cabinets above the stove. . .) But again, THANK YOU for this pc! :-)
Comment: Thank you so much! I love the happy mail you sent me. By the way I like the washi tape you used on the outside of the envelope!
Comment: Such a fun envie! LOVE the happy mail stickers and the vellum envie! Thank you!
Response: Aren't those envies cool? I found them on Amazon after someone sent one to me in a swap. I'm glad you like what I sent. :)
Comment: Thanks for sharing your resolution for 2018. It's one of mine too. I like the carousel PC. Happy Swapping!
Response: I'm glad you liked the PC. Happy swapping and happy 2018 to you :)
Comment: Thank you! I loved everything that you sent me :D
Response: You’re welcome! I’m so glad you like everything I sent 😊💌

Comment: SO, long story, but I'm going to go ahead and type it here, as succinctly as possible ... there's a woman at work who wears a black hoodie (hood up) and there are times that she will look at someone or something with that hood, and so, kind of behind her back, I call her Darth Maul... SO, I get to the PO, and what's staring back at me when I open my box???? I could have peed myself I was laughing so hard. So many 5s and hearts for the AWESOME PC and your amazing resolutions!!!
Response: Lmao! That is hilarious! Glad you enjoyed the PC and thank you for sharing the story 🤣💌
Comment: thank you very much for your envelope.
Response: You’re welcome ☺️💌

Comment: Hello Rori! Thanks so much for the neat postcard! My husband got the mail out of the box today and immediately recognized it as a scene from Star Wars! Your resolutions sound like good ones to me! Some of mine are to be less of a procrastinator and a more proactive person overall and to travel as much as I can!
Response: Those sound like good goals! Glad y’all like the Star Wars PC. I bought a big box of them and I love that they’re big so I have more space to write. 😊💌
Comment: Thank you for the lovely swap. I was thinking about writing my penpal today, I’ll be using this paper as she would like it. I also like the postage stamps that you used, ones I haven’t seen yet, so excited about them. Everything was wonderful thank you very much and the best to you and your family in 2018.
