About Me

Hello! My Name is Rachel, I'm 22yrs old and from Canada. I speak English, et je peux aussi parler un peu de français.

I have already been a snail mailer for 3yrs now, and have an instagram where I post pictures of stationery, mail, youtube videos I make about stationery crafts & mail, and other goodies.

I made this account a while back but have recently decided to give it a go. I know I don't have a lot of ratings yet, but feel free to check out my instagram because I post all the mail I send out there to my penpals & postcard swaps I've done, so you can see I am reliable. haha. Incase the Insta link doesnt work my username is also : @journaling_rachel

Halloween is my favourite holiday, so I am a spooky girl at heart. Anything creepy/halloween related is welcome all year round.

I am super cheerful, LGBTQ+ friendly, and very excited to use this website to expand my social circle, as well as share my love of stationery with others.

GOODIES & TEA:

Things I would love from swaps:

stickers (not childish, or alphabet), washi samples, journaling cards, die cuts, pressed flowers, post cards, stamps (used or unused), any tea, wax seals, enamel pins/lapel pins, I LOVE ALL PAPER EPHEMERA


TIME FOR TEA:

As for tea swaps, I do not have any allergies. I will enjoy any tea's that you send me, but if you are looking for some ideas: I like fruity, herbal, and not caffeinated. Also any flavours that are unique to your country!

Favorite Crafts

I have always had a passion for writing and crafts. Ever since I was a child I have loved writing. I hope to publish a novel (or 2 , or 3 haha) some day. I write daily journals, and even have one from way back when I was in grade 3!

For my 8th birthday, my Nana bought me my very first scrap book and I have been hooked on paper crafts since!

My love for stationery has caused me to pick up the hobbies of: scrapbooking, journaling, bullet journaling, planning, and snail mail!

I recently started making junk journals as well, so any cool (and good sized) scrap paper is welcome for you to send my way.

I LOVE postcards, and I LOVE seeing all the stamps from around the world. I plan on starting a stamp collection as well. :)

I also am an artist, and have recently been designing my own stickers. I enjoy making and trading ATC cards as well.

Favorite Music

I love all music honestly. In my house growing up we ALWAYS had the radio on. SO I have listened to so much older music from the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's grunge, and 2000's pop. I also play violin and I have a love for classical music.

AESTHETICS

Themes I enjoy for items, postcards, etc:

  • HALLOWEEN/SPOOKY ITEMS WELCOME ALL YEAR ROUND BABY

  • city view

  • MUSHROOMS / cottage core/ woodland

  • bats & snakes

  • anything mail related (postcards, stamps, post boxes, mail boxes, letter writing, etc)

  • faeries, gnomes, elves, gargoyles

  • LOTR

  • horror / creepy

  • vampires

  • ALICE IN WONDERLAND

  • Tim Burton

  • vintage

  • cacti & succulents

  • coffee & tea

  • crystals

  • water colour paintings

  • attractions of your city & country

  • sharks (and other deep sea creatures)

  • mythological creatures

  • lemons & strawberries

  • crystals

  • anime of ONLY: Jojo's, Fairy Tale, or Fruits Basket

  • witchy & paranormal

  • astrology & celestial

DISLIKES:

PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME:

  • any country postcards, not from your country (eg. say you live in England and have an Italian postcard - do not mail me that thankyou)

  • any religious cards

  • holiday cards that are not in season, (exception is Halloween because I love that holiday)

  • any animes that I have not specifically listed

  • any KPOP stuff since I do not follow the bands

  • ONLY send handmade cards if it is directly listed in the swap description


I will rate you fairly, and I expect the same from you. I do understand that mistakes happen AND due to covid mail shipping times are greatly delayed, If your swap is late (and or missing) please contact me by the deadline. If you do not, I will rate you accordingly.

I will take a photo as proof that I have sent something out. Why would I write the address & have postage on something that I was not sending? This is just incase that something would be lost in the mail - which is not my fault. But I would be open to resending. Some of my mail may have a different day it is stamped by the post office because I drop my mail off in a postal box and it could take some time to be processed after it is picked up.

If for whatever reason you have a problem with something I sent you, again please contact me directly and we can try and work something out. :)

Comment: Thanks for the card. :) A few of your negatives could be positives, too - sore from basketball means you played basketball and it was fun? :) I guess that's just the way I see things.

Comment: Wow! Thank you so much for all the Canada themed goodies! I'm blown away by your generosity! Also it's hilarious that Canada does the "yeah, no / no, yeah"thing because I've heard that is a California thing from people in other states lol. I understand you! lol

Comment: Thank you for a well prepared, well presented, very informing Swap! I appreciated it. I enjoyed reading about the 3 men who you wrote about. I have heard of Tim Horton's restaurants but none I know of in Texas. I think it is more of a Northern US thing. I knew who Terry Fox was. I wish I could giver you a higher score,like in school this would have been a 105!
Response: Ahhh thankyou so so much! You are so sweet! I am really glad to hear that it's arrived safely and that you enjoyed reading it! <3 Hope that you are well :)

Comment: Thank you for the Moth Man profile deco. I would like to think he was a warning to the bridge falling and not the cause. Happy swapping.

Comment: Thank you for the lovely Pc. It arrived in perfect condition. I’m not a fan of Mod-podge. For me, it has caused more problems than it’s worth, it never seems to dry, and i have received more PCs damaged with it. I don’t think the USPS sorting machines like the tackiness of it.
Response: Oh I am so glad to hear that! And haha, I am glad that I didn't end up sealing it then :)

I thought you'd like the bat wings on the Jersey Devil! I definitely do. I love when there's a ton of corroborating descriptions of a creature, even before cameras and recordings. Hope you enjoy! :):) jd
