About Me

Hi! I’m Esh and I’m from Singapore. I’m a freelance illustrator and artist. I enjoy working with a variety of mediums and crafting. Most recently I’ve started journaling and love the endless possibilities of putting together various ephemera to create a spread.

I’m also a full time chef and run my own business with my fiancé. We run a pop up kitchen called Taco Mantra, doing kitchen takeovers serving up Indian-Mexican tacos.

I’ve always been very drawn to all things Wiccan and magical like crystals, the moon, nature, tarot readings and the works. I’m more of a kitchen witch and I enjoy working with herbs and spices. I’ve recently started to put together my own Book of Shadows as I learn more about all things witchy.

I send out all my mail by the deadline. If I foresee a delay, I would definitely let my partner know in advance. But due to the current COVID-19 situation, please expect some delays in the mail getting to you.

If for some reason my mail doesn’t reach you within 2 months, please let me know before rating and I’d be happy to send you another mail. Please allow me to rectify before rating and I appreciate your patience! :)

**I’m currently unable to send any mail to Israel due to Covid and the post office won’t accept my mail. I will hold on to those and mail them out as soon as allowed and update my partners!

I love to try different teas but I’m especially fond of Chai, Vanilla, Chocolate and Berry flavors. I'm just not a fan of anything with licorice and fennel.

I really love hot chocolate! I would love to try different kinds that I can’t get in my country. :)

I love collecting...

  • I LOVE old/vintage paper like ledger paper, book pages, postcards, tickets, receipts, recipes, music sheets, apothecary labels, vintage ads, etc. I can never find them from where I am and would treasure any that you share with me!

  • journal kits and flip books. I love making flipbooks filled with ephemera! I take great pride in it, and you can be sure it’ll be filled with goodies. If you’d like to do a private swap, let me know!

  • I love collecting skull themed things! I have a collection of skull themed mantle pieces that friends and family randomly get for me that brings me joy!

  • pagan/witch related things, tarot/oracle cards, your favorite magical recipe, grimoire pages, small crystals

  • hand-made or dyed papers

  • kraft paper or brown paper, printed on or plain

  • washi tapes

  • postal stamps, old or new

  • Any stickers (no kiddie, reward ones though as I have no use for them)

  • pressed flowers

  • patterned paper to make junk journals with (botanical, vintage, gothic, steampunk, neutral tones)

I’m not super picky and would probably love whatever I’ve been sent. If I have no use for something you’ve sent, I’ll send it along to someone who might. :)

Television shows

I’m a HUGE fan of The Office - I watch it in sickness and in health. ;) I also like Brooklynn 99 and The Chef Show. I probably watch way too many cooking related shows. What I really enjoy though are mysteries and crime related shows.


I love listening to podcasts whenever I’m crafting and making happy mail. I generally listen to podcasts about true crime, witchy things or conspiracies. My current favorites are My Favorite Murder, The Witch Bitch Amateur Hour and Office Ladies.

Comment: WOW WOW WOW, what an absolute wonderful package. So many many lovely items, I cannot even tell you what I like most. No, wait, I can, the bookmark ruler is SO ADORABLE, or, no, the bird stickers. Or is it the handmade paper with the gold flakes. Luckily I don't have to choose, for it is all mine. Thank you a thousand hearts for this absolutely fabulous swap 💙💜💛❤💚💕💙💜💛❤💚💕💙💜💛❤💚💕💙💜💛❤💚💕
