About Me

I'm Nickol Ortiz, 22 years old. I've loved art all my life and have recently gotten into trading ATCs, and I love it!

Currently obsessed with : my planner !! I have an Erin Condren planner and notebooks and I love them. I love planner stickers, so that is mainly what I am looking for!

I love the colors pink, browns, and light Blues. I like all colors but those are my favorites.

I love animals. I have 4 cats and 3 dogs (but cats are definitely my fav!)

I have been a vegetarian since 2010.

I love to drink tea, especially loose leaf teas. I love all flavors except lemon flavors. I really enjoy a nice seasonal tea, as well as green and oolong teas.

I love burning candles and incense, I love the smell of lavender, and other fruity or floral scents.

I do NOT have any allergies.

I love candies, and love the flavor hazelnut. Not a big fan of candies like skittles, laffy taffy, etc.

Literally any "extras" in a swap make me happy! :)

***If you have any "squished pennies" from those machines, I would love to have any extras you have. My mom collects them :)

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy drawing with colored pencils, using watercolors, and making Artist Trading Cards. I am also new to crocheting, and about to begin a smash book.

If anyone had any beginners crochet advice please key me know.

Things I like

I love these things:



  • Animal Crossing (video game)

  • 90's themed

  • Mermaids

  • Positive quotes

  • something from where you live

  • Cinderella

  • hearts

  • any patterns/shapes

  • flowers and nature

  • eric carle

  • anything with an "N" or my name (Nickol)

Favorite Books

I'm currently reading The Hunger Games series. I have not really read much lately because of college (excuses!) but I do love to read! My favorite themes are any young adult book, and non-fiction. I love learning!


I could always use more:

  • thin pens (for drawing)

  • cute stickers

  • any washi tape

  • cute things to add to my planner

  • cute sticky notes (small or large)

  • alphabet stickers

  • small stickers

  • anything from your country

  • Lisa Frank

  • ink for stamps

  • anything with hearts


I love all teas, I will try any of them once. I buy a lot of loose leaf teas for myself. My current favorite is a passion fruit oolong. I also love flavored black teas and flavored or plain green teas. I have not tried many white teas. I also like to drink herbal tea before bed sometimes. There is one flavor I am not a big fan of and that would be lemon.

Things I Don't Like.

There is not much that I do not like or will not at least try to use. If I get something I do not like, I could always send it to someone else in another swap, so it's not really a big deal to me. If I think of something later I really don't want to receive, I will add it here.

  • anything that has to do with animal cruelty/hunting
  • anything racist or homophobic

Pen Pals and others

To anyone sending me anything, just know that I am totally okay with:

  • cursing

  • nudity (in art)

  • any religions. I don't consider myself to be anything religious, but I'm open to hearing what other people have to day, just don't be too pushy!

  • using things like "lol" "omg" "wtf" and things like that, I use them too (I am only writing this because I've seen other people say they hate this lol)

Comment: Hi Nickol, Thank you so much for the tea. I was so excited when I opened up the package I literally went and put the kettle straight on and brewed up the passion fruit oolong tea, which was delicious. I am sure I will enjoy the other teas just as much too.
