Who Am I?

My name is Abby, I just kissed my 20's goodbye, and I love collecting stationery and trying all kinds of arts and crafts. Please spice up my life with some happy mail!

I'm a huge bookworm, I read 75-100 books a year. I love to curl up with my fluffy Maine Coon cat named Chowder and read until we both doze off. I also have a bratty black cat named Jafar who can turn you to stone with his glare o.o

I have almost 2000 rolls of rare and weird washi tapes & I love to share! If you have a special interest I can (probably) find a washi in my collection for it. I'm open to private swaps, just message me!

Send me these!

Goodies: Art prints, postcards (I love illustrations, not so much photos), letter sets, Japanese & Korean stationery, patterned paper, postal stamps, ephemera, string and twine (I love Avril yarn!), stamped images, handmade envelopes, enamel pins.

Themes/ Aesthetic: I love all shades of green, watercolors, abstract patterns, nature/botanical, painted landscapes, field guide illustrations, bizarre/surreal, cityscapes, graffiti, video games, grungy edgy fashion, rainy days, daily life/monotony, cozy scenes, outer space (especially Saturn), creepy, Halloween, skeletons, sweary or crass, butts/nudes, 420.

Animals: Cats, insects (scarabs and beetles), raccoons, skunks, pandas, red pandas, birds (crows, ravens, owls, seagulls, parakeets).

Rare animals like Tapirs! Okapis! Axolotls! Capybaras! Ostrich! Walruses! Quokkas! Lemurs! Pufferfish! Blobfish!

Comment: Hi Abby...wow...these are really well done! Your geometric washi collaging is perfect and the colors you chose are just beautiful. I absolutely adore seeing typewriting on a page, too, so that gave me a thrill! The enclosed galaxy/constellation envelope is no less gorgeous than the one with my address--I love darker colors on envelopes because it's really rare. Again . . . beautifully done. I see you live in Salem, MA . . . I'll bet Halloween is a LOT of fun! Many thanks for a wonderful swap.
Response: Aww thanks for your sweet words, and you're so welcome! I'm glad you love what I sent, I loved creating it, it was so meditative and calming! Yep I do live in Witch City and Halloween is usually a month-long bash... I know things will be different this year, but we'll still have fun :D
