About me ๐ŸŒŒ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ”ฎโœจ

Hi there! I'm Jen, a 28 year-old programmer and dachshund mom. Binary is for computers, though ~ Iโ€™m non-binary and my pronouns are they/them.

In my free time you'll most likely find me working on something crafty. Be it DIY projects, practicing calligraphy/lettering, journaling, creating snail mail, graphic design, crochetting, knitting, making collages, painting with watercolors, or sewing. Moreover, I practice mindfulness + meditation, sing and take a great interest in psychology.

I absolutely love creating, as well as receiving your creations. Share your art with me! No matter which medium, no matter if you're a beginner or experienced, it would make my day!

I'm an eclectic witch, so I enjoy things such as crystals, essential oils, candles, incense, pictures/paintings/illustrations of the Moon (phases), zodiac and astrology things (Libra ๐ŸŒž, Aquarius ๐ŸŒœ, Leo โฌ†๏ธ), rituals + spells, tarot/oracle cards and readings thereof, and herbology.

I'm always up for private swaps of different kinds! Send me a message if you're interested! :)

Love ๐Ÿ’•

I collect old/special playing cards. Right now I'm trying to build my own Franken Deck (a deck made of cards from different decks), so any playing cards are most welcome :) I am obsessed with Batman & Wonder Woman! Animals I particularly love are sloths, koalas, narwhals, axolotls, lions, and otters. I like the Moomins, Krteฤek (The Little Mole) and Sailor Moon a lot. Outer space + celestial and botanical (especially poppies, lavender, hydrangea) are my favorite themes. When it comes to crafts I love anything glitter, floral, pastel, or neon. My favorite colors in particular are dusky pink, royal blue and mint. I love pastels and muted colors just as much as neons and bright colors; a huge sucker for rose gold and holographic too. I enjoy die cuts, stickers, patterned paper, and washi samples.

ย Random crafty things:

  • washi stickers
  • round stickers
  • kiddie stickers ~ for my 6 year-old niece who's just as obsessed with stickers as I am hehe
  • airmail stickers ~ crafty/pretty ones, not the real ones
  • alphabet stickers ~ but please only if there are multiple of each letter
  • return address labels
  • (patterned/colorful) vellum
  • journaling cards
  • (patterned/colorful/special) paper doily
  • writing paper ~ I'll lovingly adopt your single sheets/leftovers
  • colored grid/lined/dotted paper
  • anything marbled
  • anything watercolor
  • (old) dictionary/encyclopedia pages
  • labels and tags
  • journals ย 

ย 

Random imagery/objects/things:

  • Flora, Fauna, Merryweather (Sleeping Beauty)
  • Black Mirror
  • Steven Universe
  • Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
  • astronauts
  • Flow magazine
  • dachshunds (obviously :p)
  • pretty lettering
  • constellations
  • unicorns
  • mountains and forests
  • typewriters
  • Aurora Borealis
  • citrus patterns ~ lemons, oranges, grapefruits, etc.
  • vaporwave and pastel aesthetic
  • sea/beach glass
  • queer/feminist/fatpositive art
  • the 90s ~ esp. polaroid pictures, cassette tapes, roller skates, arcade machines

ย 

Yummies ๐Ÿญ๐Ÿซโ˜•

Teas I like are flavored black/green/white, citrusy, calming ones and anything with lavender. Not really fond of anything else, to be honest. Any type of candy/snacks are welcome! If I don't like it, my partner will most likely love it :D He loves to try foreign candy! However, we both don't like chewing gum. Things we especially enjoy are sour gummies, anything peanut butter, anything pretzel, chocolate bars, the combination of sweet and salty, and chewy candy.

ย 

Please do not send ๐Ÿšซ

  • beauty product samples ~ face masks are okay
  • religious stuff and non-Pagan holiday-themed stuff ~ Christmas, Easter, Valentine's Day, Hanukah etc.
  • kids stuff & Disney (except for stickers)
  • Kawaii, Emojis
  • puffy/3D stickers ~ yes to epoxy stickers, though
  • friendship books and alike
  • blank touristic postcards
  • problematic phrases like "always smile, be positive, life is good, calories don't count on the weekend", etc.
  • cultural appropriation anything ~ dreamcatchers, headdresses, "yaaas", sugar skulls, etc.

ย  ย 

Favorite Books ๐Ÿ“š

  • The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender
  • Eleonore & Park by Rainbow Rowell
  • I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
  • Borne by Jeff VanderMeer
  • They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera

ย 
Basically I love YA, magical realism and dystopian literature. Feel free to recommend any books you love! I'm always looking for a good read :)

Your Instagram is amazing, those pictures of the envelopes you draw are gorgeous! As a YA book lover myself, I would like to recommend you to read "The Every Boy" by Dana Adam Shapiro. I once read in a review this being called "The New Catcher of the Rye for the 21st century" but imho it is much better than that classic.
