About Me

Hi! I'm Rivi, I'm a preschool teacher and writer in Berkeley, California (USA).

Mental Health Advocate. Neurodivergent (ADHD). Jewish. Blogger. INFP. Avid Knitter. Pisces. Planner Lover. Murderino. Ace/Demisexual. Ravenclaw. Preschool Teacher. Creative Writer. Old Soul.

I'm super crafty and creative, and love writing and sending happy mail.

I always send out my swaps on time, so if you haven't received something from me, please let me know/reach out so I can resend.

If there is an issue with postage, message me and I will venmo or paypal any costs. I can also mail you USPS stamps to balance out the cost, and I will send more than what is owed when I do it that way (I have a lot of extra postage! I love to collect new and pretty stamps)

I'm not picky about my dislikes; if I get something I can't use I will just pass it along.

Happy Mail and Swapping

I love swapping and happy mail! I am always looking for new penpals and swappers.

I just started doing friendship sheets and friendship books. I will happily return any and all homers-- send them my way! (I know a lot of the swaps have a limit on how many homers you can send-- no limit for me)

I have a lot of excess of bags, books, and sheets! If you are looking to get started swapping friendship books, friendship sheets, label bags, sticker bags, memo bags, etc. message me and I will happily send you some of my excess.

Since I am a preschool teacher, I am happy to take any of those kiddie/reward stickers off your hands to use in my classroom. (I prefer regular decorative stickers for journaling, but I know a lot of people don't like the kiddie stickers and I am happy to receive them)

Comment: Thank you for sending four decos: Sonya’s open theme, Rivi’s Fairy theme (for Jennifer Hsu), Jenny’s snoopy theme, and Rivi’s open theme (for Debora Stamper). I’m looking forward to working on these and welcome any others that you want to pass along. It amazes me that all these shipped from CA to FL for only two postage stamps too. You have nice postmasters!

Comment: Thank you for post cards. I believe they are re-prints of the old. Thank you for the fall stickers. I can use them next year. The recipes for play dough Plus are not in my league. My children are approaching 50 years old. Bookmark I can always use. The circular thing--What do I do with it? I honestly do not know.
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart! The circular thing I think you're referring to a die cut sticker, so you can use it as a sticker or as ephemera in a junk journal. You could also always use it to decorate an envelope or anything else you can put a sticker on :)

I see you love old playing cards- I've been collecting those too. Every time I find a loose card laying on the ground it makes me smile, and I HAVE to take it home.
