Hi! I'm Natalie, I'm 19 and I'm from the UK. I'm relatively new to snail mail and swapping (been doing it properly since around September 2017) but I adore it and have even set up a blog and instagram all about it! @penpalsandbooks / penpalsandbooks.com if you want to check them out!)
I would love to swap with people who would want to carry on letter writing or swapping afterwards; I want to make friends with people who have the same interests as me!
I would also love to be able to share things from my home and get to know about your hometowns more, I love travelling and I love learning about different countries! Maps, postcards, facts and badges/patches from different places are probably my favourite things to collect.
If you have any questions feel free to drop me an email at email@example.com
I love everything Disney: my favourite film is Aladdin (the genie is my favourite character EVER) but I love prints from Alice in Wonderland (I just love the look of the characters), and I love movie posters and vintage prints and the classic Disney characters are so adorable! I also adore Sherlock, Doctor Who (doctors 9 and 10) and of course, Harry Potter (I'm a hufflepuff) I love anything to do with Space, I am absolutely fascinated by it all, especially exploration in space. I love vintage prints and patches to do with space and anything with planets or astronauts on.
I'm trying to get more into paper crafts, and I'm trying to find more ways to use all of my stationery: I have random boxes filled with bits all over my room, and so I would love to be able to share some of it with you! I also wouldn't say no to adding more to my own collection... My two favourite stationery items are washi tape and stickers! I'm trying to collect as many colours and patterns of washi as possible, I want to have my own rainbow. I love all kinds of stickers, I love flowers and leaves, word and letter stickers and character stickers as well.
My favourite band would probably be the Red Hot Chili Peppers, as I was brought up listening to them by my mum. I've seen them live 3 times now, even travelling to Spain to see them! I also adore Coldplay, another of my mum's favourites. I think their songs are so beautiful, and they are all so talented! A guilty pleasure of mine is McFly, who I actually didn't become a fan of until I was about 14 years old, but have now seen live 5 times and met twice. Their songs always put me in a good mood and the band are so funny. My favourite artist is probably Tom Odell, who is a slightly smaller singer from the UK. I've seen him live 5 times as well. He's more about the lyrics of the songs and they definitely make me feel things. He's amazing on the piano, and can really hit the high notes when he sings. I'm rambling sorry.
I love sending and receiving herbal teas! I mostly drink chamomile, sometimes with Lavender, sometimes with Honey. I also love mint teas and fruity teas! I also am starting to collect postcards, especially the Greetings From series, of which I already have Slovakia and the UK. I also love anything Disney, and I definitely do not have enough stationery. I'm mainly on the lookout for Disney washis and postcards at the moment. I love Aladdin, Alice in Wonderland and the classic Mickey and friends. I'm obsessed with sloths, and so any stationery with Sloths on is more than welcome, they're just so cute!
