About Me

I like sending and receiving mail-postcards, letters, treats, random stuff.

I love fonts, typography, graphic design, popular culture, photography, letterpress design, and calligraphy.

I collect cameras/photography related stuff and postcards and ephemera and craft supplies and books.

I am a high school English teacher, single without kids, and I have a dog named Gulliver. I just love sending treats to people by mail! Swapping is something I take pride in doing, and I would never intentionally flake. If you haven't received something from me, please message me and I'll resend.

POSTCARDS

LIKES I love photography, black and white cards, cards with unusual typography, cameras or typewriters, and alphabets or text.

I have ordered unique pcs from Redbubble, a site that enables artists to sell their designs in a variety of formats (note cards and pcs, towels, art prints, etc.). I really like the quality of the pcs I ordered, and I got 30% off because I ordered more than 8 pcs. (I don't know if that discount was a promotion or if it's standard.)

DISLIKES Touristy postcards are okay but not my favorite.

CRAFTS

I sometimes do Project Life (not every week, just when I have the time), and I usually do Ali Edwardsโ„ขs yearly One Little Word project. I love sending and receiving mail. I have a subscription to Pipsticks, a the monthly sticker pack.

I'm single without kids so my PL album is kind of a journal mixed with some photos of my dog and me. I don't use that many embellishments, but sometimes I can't resist. Punctuation marks and alphabets are two of my favorites.

STUFF I LOVE

Washi tape--Chevrons, silver, stars, stripes, rainbow, ombre, and unusual patterns

Pens--I love Pigma Micron 05 (that's 0.45 mm) by Sakura in any color, and I like Sharpie pens (not the markers). I use a black one to write pcs & notes. I also like PaperMate InkJoy gel pens; they come in a rainbow of colors and medium & fine tips. JetPens is a great online source for good pens. They sell component pens in many varieties so much cooler than the 4-color ballpoint variety. And I just discovered Pentel Hybrid Dual Metallic pens; I love them: glittery goodness!

Markers--I mostly use a bullet-tip set by Stabilo and dual-tip set by PrismaColor for my coloring needs. I wish I could get PrismaColors in every color, but at $3/marker, that's not going to happen. They are so smooth and saturated though! (Although that saturation means they bleed through thin paper.)

Notecards--I love clever, ironic, and/or endearing cards. If they're letterpress, even better. Some brands I love: Elum, Hello!Lucky, Smudge Ink, Snow and Graham, and Greenwich Letterpress.

Mini-buttons/badges--I collect the 1 inchers. They usually have a pin backing but sometimes a magnet backing--either type works for me if the design is to my liking. Badge Bomb has a lot of styles I like:Badge Bomb

PLEASE DON'T SEND

  • food, coffee, or tea
  • lip balm, lotions, or soaps
  • make-up
  • teacher/reward stickers

Comment: What a dandy PC! Thank you. I like the sloth washi tape! Where'd you get it?
Response: Iโ€™m 90% sure I got it at Hobby Lobby; it was part of a tube set that included other patterns: mixed tape, astronaut, lips, and cherries. (Those are the other ones I can remember.)

Comment: Thank you Jennifer for the El Venado PC. I love how you really spiced it up with all the stickers & stamps! It also feels so personal how you can just โ€œgabโ€ in the message... I need to work on that as I think I tend to be more formal & structured.
Response: Thanks for the heart and the kind words. My ability to โ€œgabโ€ probably varies on the kind of day Iโ€™ve had; with the postcard swaps Iโ€™ve done recently, I have been thinking, โ€œI always write about the weather...how boring.โ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚ But, I must admit, living in a place that is so hot most of the year, the weather (i.e, the awful heat) is often on my mind!!

Comment: Jennifer, this was such a great swap. Your envelope alone deserves a heart! It's decorated so beautifully. I also love all the little bits you sent--perfect for collage, which is the art technique I love the most. Many thanks.
