About Me

Hi! I am Caitlyn and I am from rural Missouri. Recently, I became obsessed with 'stationery' (I find that word a bit strange), bullet journalling, markers and whatnot. None of my friends share this certain affinity, so I thought I would try out this website!

Personal Life

  • I have two dogs and three cats that I absolutely adore! The cats are black, grey, and a tabby. The dogs are a Border Collie Husky mix and an American Eskimo, Mosey and Colby respectively. Mosey has one brown eye and one blue eye!
  • I am currently in college pursuing an engineering degree. I am enjoying learning new things, but classes can make me pretty busy.

What I Love!

  • The color green! Especially lighter greens, lime green is okay but definitely subpar to the lovely, earthy tones the color is capable of!

  • Pens and markers! I love Zebra Mildliners, they are definitely my favorites. I also own a lot of pilot g-2 pens and Crayola Supertips -- can you tell I'm on a budget?? I've heard of Tombow dual-brush pens, Pigma Micron pens, Muji and the like, I just can't buy it all at once. Slow and steady wins the race?

  • If I had to choose an animal, it would probably be the bear. Polar bears, grizzly bears, sun bears, panda bears, black bears, you name it and I love it! While I probably wouldn't like to encounter a bear out in the wild I enjoy what they represent to me. I think I may eventually even get a tattoo of one.

  • My favorite city is Chicago! I have visited twice and each time I was absolutely enamored. The first time was with my family and we mostly went around the museum scene. The Museum of Science and Industry is a must see! There are so many things to see and interact with there, including a gigantic, realistic train set!

Stationery I Love!

  • My favorite color, like I said, is earthy green!
  • Washi tape! I have a whole bin full and love to send and receive it, specifically ones that match my other interests.
  • I gravitate towards things with prints of leaves. I have five leaf washi tapes!
  • I really enjoy things like plain brown card stock or paint swatches. Just like they say, "keep it simple, stupid". Stationery is, for me, calming - but it loses that effect if complicated.
  • Simple watercolor-like designs and repetitive prints.
  • Sticky notes, I'm even hosting a sticky note swap. They're just so cool and useful.
  • Have you ever heard the word "bucolic", or "pastoral"? I enjoy that sort of vibe.
  • "Vintage" things also catch my eye often.
  • Architectural things, if that makes sense (:

Food?

  • When it comes to teas, I am okay with practically anything. I haven't really tried a wide variety of teas and am eager to try more. I lean towards mint- or fruit-flavored, though.
  • I have no food allergies.
  • I don't enjoy especially sugary stuff, like the majority of candy

Specific Wants

I would really like some gift tags to use for washi samples! I am using playing cards right now, while functioning I know it could be a lot prettier (:

I have a very small variety of mint stamps as well.

Also, I didnโ€™t know the word ephemera existed until a month ago, and therefore have NONE! I would love some unique stuff, especially botanic themed

Please avoid sending....

  • Bright colors with insane patterns and glitter and pop-ups and the like. I am open-minded to them, these things just usually aren't pleasing to me so please don't make them the main shebang.
  • Extremely scented things. Light scent is okay.
  • Please no nudity, political stuff, or quotes (:
  • No children's, cartoon, or teacher items. I do not have any use for these things and do not like them.
  • I'm not really into kawaii. While I won't complain, save it for somebody who loves it.

Comment: Because this was sent very late, I am rating a 3. But also, two of these tapes are not washi, they are deco tapes. You should be able to easily tear washi, and two of these are shiny plastic tapes that require scissors. Reply to your comment: I donโ€™t know what kind of super human strength you have, but I cannot tear these two tapes by hand. I have been swapping washi tape for a couple years now and I know deco tapes when I see it. The rating will remain.
Response: Hello. This was not sent late, I had to resend (as you asked) and my post office is horrendously slow, not to mention that I got the envelope returned to my P.O. Box for unknown reasons. The two tapes I believe you are referring to are indeed washi, as the qualification is โ€œeasily tearableโ€ and they are most certainly as easy to tear as any other washi by hand, I do it myself every day (theyโ€™re just shiny. I bought them from hobby lobby, and the package says washi tape). I donโ€™t know why you are being so picky with this swap but Iโ€™m sorry you feel this way. Please consider rerating as I have met all qualifications of the swap, including resending for lost mail.

Comment: Thank you for the playlists! I am just checking out the songs from Spotify. Never thought country would be something for me, but now these ones are stuck in my head... How they make them so catchy?
