About Me

UPDATE: Isla is now 6 months old and I am now committing to swaps again! Please bare in mind that I am to undergo surgery in the month of October, so there will be little activity on here from the 8th of October onwards.

PLEASE NOTE: SHE'S HERE! On the 2nd of April at 16:03, I welcomed a lovely little girl via emergency c-section after labouring for 3 days through induction. All swaps I have committed to have been sent. If you do not receive something, let me know and I'll resend ASAP. If you think I should have received something from yourself, but have not yet rated you, let me know and I'll double check that I've received and will rate accordingly! Thank you for your patience and continued postal kindness🌻

My name is Phoebe and I'm a 21 year old English redhead - residing in South East England - with a passion for paper-crafts, snail mail, planning and gaming. I have a newborn daughter, called Isla, who means the absolute world to me.

I have been pen-palling for the past 5 years and often use Instagram as a way to connect with my fellow crafters/snail-mailers (find me at @inkyplum ). I've always adored doing anything and everything creative and it has lead me to study Digital Arts at University which I've thoroughly enjoyed thus far. However, my studies are now currently on hold as I begin my maternity leave!

I am a spoonie and suffer with a number of chronic illnesses - the main one being Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. It has been through penpalling and snail mail that I have found some form of reprieve and am so thankful for those who have taken the time to write/send me something. Creating pen-friendships and exchanging mail with various people from across the globe has truly brightened the darker days and - no pun intended - has acted like a metaphorical crutch in my life when everything else seemed to be falling apart. How cheesy.

My Likes

I am a lover of photography (both digital and film), as well as anything & everything crafty...I also like tea (of all varieties), coffee (I pride myself on my barista skills!), giraffes, the colour yellow (it makes me smile!), unique and obscure things/items, and spontaneous adventures. I love to learn about different cultures/places and more.

Favourite Crafts

As someone who crafts, plans and scrapbooks, most paper based things are a weakness of mine. I particularly like gold-embossed ephemera and watercolour effects. I'm a major washi tape lover too!

My paper crafts obsession extends beyond the above to planning as well. I have various Filofax and Kikki K planners which I love to use, customise and stuff full of relevant things. I often tend to use my planner as more of a journal & document my weekly goings-on in them. It would be safe to say that my affinity for planning is borne out of my love for stationery.

Favourite Video Games

I often find myself escaping to alternate realities in the form of video games. I have a soft spot for Bioware; Dragon Age, more specifically. I also play The Sims, Civ, Mass Effect, My Time at Portia and Mystic Messenger among a few. I also have a YouTube channel where I sometimes vlog and also play games!

Things I Like To Receive

Ephemera // Washi Samples // Teas (any!) // Letter/writing sets // Stickers // Coffee beans (ground or whole) // Handwritten letters // Postcards

If you'd like to write privately as penpals, please don't hesitate to message me with a brief bit of info about yourself...or you can find me on Instagram @inkyplum I'm currently accepting penpals from anywhere/everywhere!

Profile Quote #17

“To love someone fiercely, to believe in something with your whole heart, to celebrate a fleeting moment in time, to fully engage in a life that doesn’t come with guarantees – these are risks that involve vulnerability and often pain. But, I’m learning that recognizing and leaning into the discomfort of vulnerability teaches us how to live with joy, gratitude and grace.” ― Brené Brown

Happy Women's Day to you. Learn to celebrate yourself each day a little more. You live life only once but if you do it right. Once is enough
