About Me

Hi! I'm new here. My name is Simone, I am in my mid 30's, and recently re-discovered pen palling again, and then stumbled upon this amazing site.. I have a strong love for stationery, mail art, pens and paper.

I am an art lover, love the outdoors, I consider myself spiritual but not religious.

I am an entrepreneur and have a bit of a rebellious streak, and am a tomboy at heart. I was raised in a small town that felt stifling sometimes growing up, but very much appreciate the small town values I was raised with, to be good, helpful, cheerful and kind. I am very thankful of the good people I have and have had in my life; good people have made all the difference!

Things I like are: kawaii, cute illustrations, Japanese stationery, European stationery, paper, pens, letters, interesting ideas, anything off the beaten path, mildly offensive and weird are ok with me too. I love design, mostly modern design. I like rural country themes sometimes, but lean more towards minimalism. I love worldly things, items collected from travels, that tell a story.

I HATE GLITTER with a passion! Not big on religious, political ephemera, mainstream media like "Game of Thrones, "Harry Potter", etc. I don't dislike these necessarily, I just don't know anything about them.

Favorite Books

Books are a passion and I read mostly non-fiction. Some favorites are Letters of Note and Lists of Note. I love self-help, spirituality, business biographies, home decoration and projects and how-to's. I do occasionally read comics (based on cartoons) or graphic novels. I have recently become very interested in zines after seeing some at Art Basel. I love quirky zines.

Favorite Television

I am not into television much, but when I do watch it is usually social and cultural documentaries. I am very interested in seeing how other people live.

Favorite Crafts

-Writing letters to pen pals - I am super dependable and have never flaked on anyone (this hasn't happened to me yet, but if you did not receive a swap from me - please message me first. The reason will never be that I didn't send!) -Mail Art -Modern Calligraphy and lettering -Making Stickers -Drawing -I would like to get into gardening next! -Am currently renovating a house, so anything DIY, home improvement, home decoration, I lovvvveee

Comment: Yay, got it. Your writing is so pretty and so is the envie great esp in the plastic. lol Yes, I really get a kick out envies in plastic. Its fun when the address is on the envelope itself so when I pull the plastic off I have a treasured envie for my stash. But I love your plastic engineering. lol Your zine rocks. I've never seen one so in depth before. Crazy nice! THANK YOU so much! x
Response: Aw, thank you :) Yesssss I love when they have plastic over them too, it's the best! Still trying to figure out how to put the address on the plastic - use labels I guess? Would love to do more mail with you :-D

Comment: Ok everything about what you sent is perfection. I love the envelope and it will be going into a scrapbook. I LOVE the zine and the story behind it -- the fact that you made it on copy paper and markers and stuck to the 20 minutes. Exactly what I had in mind. :) Thanks for joining my little silly swap and I hope to see your around the 'bot!
