Who Am I?

My name is Abby and I'm a bored artist watching my twenties fade away working a desk job. Please spice up my life with some happy mail!

I'm an avid reader, anywhere from 60-100 books a year. I love to curl up with my fluffy Maine Coon cat named Chowder and read until we both pass out. I also have a bratty black cat named Jafar who can turn you to stone with his glare.

I love collecting washi tape. I have a ginormous collection (over 1000 tapes!) of rare and weird washi tapes & I love to share! If you have a special interest I can find a washi in my collection for it! Open to private swaps- message me!

I'm getting really into typewriters lately! I have a Royal Touch Control model from the 1930's and I love writing letters on it, it's very satisfying.

Send me these!

Goodies- Art prints, postcards (I love illustrated, art or vintage postcards, don't like photo/view/tourist cards), letter sets, writing paper, patterned paper, postal stamps, ephemera, string/ yarn samples (I love Avril yarn!) stamped images, handmade envelopes, enamel pins.

Themes/ Aesthetic- All shades of green, bright colors, watercolors, abstract patterns, nature/botanical, creepy, Halloween, skeletons, plague doctors, bizarre/surreal, sweary or crass, butts/nudes, 420, cityscapes, graffiti, grunge, illustrated landscapes, rainy day, daily life/monotony, outer space (especially Saturn- my swapbot namesake!)

Animals- Cats, alpacas, insects, raccoons, skunks, pandas, birds (crows, ravens, owls, seagulls, parrots) field guide illustrations.

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

Characters/ Fandoms- Gudetama, BT21 especially TATA, Studio Ghibli, One Punch Man, Mob Psycho, My Hero Academia.

Tea- Jasmine Green and Earl Gray are my faves.
