About Me

mama to three dirt-loving, dreamy wild-things who i homeschool alongside my love in an old farmhouse filled with books and herbs hanging from the ceiling.

i've been snail-mailing for years now (letter writing, artist-trading-card & happy mail swaps) and my passion lines in lovely put together packages, vintage stamps, and composing letters by hand and using my vintage typewriter.

Favorite Crafts

letter-writing, happy mail, greeting & postcard exchanges, homemade zine exchanges, artist trading cards, pocket-letters /// non-mail crafts: needle-felting, herbal tinctures, salves and sprays using plants, flowers and herbs i grow & harvest myself, mixed-media and collaging, terrarium & fairy garden magics, and pottery


vintage ephemera (flowers, plants and ferns) + fairies + pagan/witchy things + spells and zines + embroidery + foxes & toadstools + lace & bits of ribbon + old stamps + nature + homesteading + waldorf & forest school

no thank you

im not particularly picky when it comes to swapping, but i ask that no edible/food items be sent, unless i specifically join a themed swap.


i would love a fellow witchy pen pal (letters, pagan-themed swaps) or really anyone who shares a love for nature and simplicity. homeschooling folk that have an interest in forest or child-lead learning, lets exchange homemade learning supplies! busy-bags, lapbooking, nature journals. i have made all sorts of things for my children, and have swapped with fellow mamas in the past.

i love receiving natural things. dried herbs or flowers from your neck of the woods would rock my world. anything having to do with foxes would be equally lovely


abc of me

a: animals, for which i have quick the variety. dogs + cats + ducks + rabbits + chickens + a cat & lizard + beta fish, mostly rescued or purchased from those raising them for 4-h or local farms.

b: books. im a reader, especially science-fiction & fantasy..i also have quite the soft spot for diy & how-to books, as well as field-guides, which i collect.

c: cooking, eh. im not the best cook in the world, and although i dream of putting together a 5-course farm to table feast, the reality is..nope. my husband is our in-house chef.

d: dogs, ever since i was a little-one, i loved dogs. i had a pet-walking & sitting business at nine years old, and later as a "grown up" i did both, for some famous folks as well. now i am a rescue & foster mama for pups, pit bulls being a favorite.

e: ephemera. vintage especially

f: the forest. i love wandering about with my wild-things looking for rocks to turn over, and wildflowers to pick.

g: gusts of wind, on a sweltering summer day are one of my favorite feelings.

h: herbs. i love them! i grow most of my own herbs here on our little homestead, and i make my own teas, tinctures, essential oil blends, and the likes.

i: indigo. im experimenting with dyes lately, and this is a favorite.

j: jasmine. since i just made a sleepy-time jar for my niece, which had herbs to promote a restful night, and jasmine was one of them.

k: kings and queens, fairy tales, princesses and princes.

l: life, love and light. which i try to send to anyone who needs it.

m: motherhood. being a mama is perhaps, my calling and my passion. i have three littles who light my world, and im so glad i get to spend my days teaching, adventuring and lovin them.

n: nature. im a naturalist at heart.

o: open-mind. i believe in kindness, and second chances. i never judge someone for their hardships, or lifestyle, and i wish the world were more open minded in general.

p: paige, my daughter who's ten. she is kind, and brave (not afraid to stick up to a bully for one thing..) she loves to draw, sing, and read. one day she wants to be an animal-rescue kinda chick.

q: queens (to go along with my king)

r: rarely on time. i try!

s: soulmate, the man i married, my best friend and true love (if such a thing exists)

t: tinctures. i love making them and helping folks heal

u: underneath my stairs, there's a little secret spot the kids like to hide in.

v: valentines. handwritten of course

w: washi-tape! im a little smitten with all the nature/foresty/folk designs, and am a collector for sure.

x: xerox copy machines. i have a memory of standing my my dads office, scanning my hands over and over.

y: yodeling. my daughter often does this to annoy me, and it absolutely works.

z: zero. has in, i had zero ideas for the last few letters.

Comment: Dear Tracy, Thank you for the profile hello! You wrote so much and I appreciate it ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป My favorite country to travel to is definitely Japan because it is just great๐Ÿค˜๐ŸผBut the most memorable 'adventure' I had is definitely my trip to Morocco. There was just too much story to tell. It is really great to hear that you try to take your kids to travel! I believe that must be very different experience from traveling alone. I recall when I was young, my mom also loves to drive me around northern Taiwan during the weekends. (And I used to hate it because I prefer playing video games with my classmates.) The coast experience you have in Maine sounds cozy. I would love to spend a day by the sea with my partner some day. The other experiences sounds really cook as well! The weather is turning cold, please stay warm! -- Jess
Response: hope you stay warm too! we have the most un-november weather here, right now the kids are running around in shorts while it's drizzling, playing!

Comment: Hello mama! ))) We don't partake in costumes & treats. Halloween isn't traditional holiday for Russia. But some people do partake in costumes and go to cafe or party
Response: i had a feeling, but couldn't resist asking! costumes are a blast, but sometimes the stress of choosing one gets to me as a mama. last year i was a steam-punk girl, whatever that means. this year, im going to be a woodland elf/fae type creature. thanks for the feedback xx

Comment: Thank you for the lovely note on my Profile! I love hearing about people's lives, I can just imagine that porch of yours and everything going on with your sweet kids. I miss my kids being young. They're all teenagers now. We have 3 kitties but I also take care of neighborhood ferals. I laughed when I read that your kids call the kitty "meow meow", When I was young I had a cat that I named "meow meow" as well lol! I love what you do with the pumpkins and leaves with the wax! How neat! Hope you have a very Happy Fall!!!!

Comment: Tracy I mostly taught third grade.
Response: neat! that's the grade we are working through now -we follow a waldorf curriculum, so no formal stuff until 6/7 (sort of like sweden's style of learning) so far so good!

I read something very interesting today which i wanted to share with you.

'Every person reaches a point at which they owe it to themselves to hit refresh-to reenergize, renew, reframe and rethink their purpose. May each of us be strong always.
