My name is Michelle. I live in (mostly) sunny California with my husband and my twin toddlers. I enjoy handicrafts, travel, reading, and MAIL! I have my degree in History of Art and Visual Culture from UC Santa Cruz (GO BANANA SLUGS!), but love working with children. Currently a stay-at-home mom.
I am an avid Postcrosser, LWA member and pen pal. :-)
I love mice, hedgehogs, bumblebees, mermaids, sea horses, otters, maps, stickers, washi tape, and glitter. I'm inspired by a lot of artists from my college studies, especially Klimt, Camille Rose Garcia, Frida Kahlo, Kandinsky, and children's book illustrators.
UPDATE: Our vacation to the Pacific Northwest was great! Thanks to everyone who gave travel recommendations! 😊
I just started working on the weekends at Paper Source again (YAY CRAFTS!), but my time at work will cut down on my crafts and letter-writing at home, so I won’t be signing up for quite as many swaps. This also means I might not check on the status of my sent swaps, so if you have not yet received a swap that I have sent you, please contact me.

I am very new to ATC's and flipbooks. If you like making them and I have signed up for an open-ended swap I would love to build my collection of them and get more inspiration on what to make for my own.
If you are wondering what to send me in a swap, I am fairly easy to please. Just show that you put a little effort into sending me something that you yourself would like to receive. I always like hearing why you sent me what you did, something that we may have in common, a strange fact or secret about you, or what you had for breakfast.
I don't have many dislikes, and anything you send if it is something you enjoy will be welcomed. BUT I don't prefer Disney items (unless it's Tim Burton), super feminine or masculine items, or any politics regarding #45.
Always open to direct swaps, just send me a message!
