About Me

๐Ÿ‘‹๐ŸฝHello!

My name is Micaela and I live in foggy San Francisco, California, USA. ๐Ÿ’Œ

I work as a graphic designer in the tech industry. I have recently started and run a letter writing group called the San Francisco Correspondence Society, which you can read more about below. โ†“

I'm 26, I was born in the Napa Valley and went to college up there as well. My family still lives there and I love going back home and visiting them and their new dachshund puppy, Cashew.

.

Loves

๐Ÿ“ฎThese are just a few of the things I love:

  • Dachshunds! (my family has a small English Cream long hair dachshund named Cashew, so I love anything dachshund-related)

  • Collecting and using vintage postage stamps (I especially love animal stamps, architecture & art stamps, mail-related stamps, and floral/nature themed stamps)

  • Cards and stationery (love anything letterpress, gold foil, pretty illustration, floral/nature, coffee, or snail-mail related!)

  • Stickers (love animal, floral, nature, kawaii ones, coffee, travel, books and snail-mail related ones! Also love mrs grossman's, stickii and pipsticks too)

  • Traveling (favorite places are Florence, Paris, Big Sur, Carmel-by-the-sea, and Tulum in Mexico)

  • Reading and baking (love cupcakes and chocolate chip cookies)

  • Calligraphy (I'm a novice)

  • Favorite foods are Mexican (I'm half Mexican), Italian, and any yummy vegan soups (recipes welcome!)

  • Typewriters (I own an Olympia DeLuxe Cursive one)

๐Ÿ“ฎPostcards I like to receive:

  • Animals: My favorite animals are dachshunds, horses, elephants, tigers, turtles, humpback whales, and really any dog.

  • Nature: I am a big fan of cacti and succulents, and always welcome more flora and fauna in my mailbox. I also love fruit, tulips, and redwood trees.

  • Abstract: I love abstract and modern art so if you have a postcard lying around, I'd love it! I visit the SFMOMA often, and love Ellsworth Kelly. I also love impressionist art like Monet, Degas, Cรฉzanne, Matisse)

  • Landscapes: I like tourist postcards that aren't the usual tourist postcards. But I also love natural landscapes and cityscapes and landmarks. Tell me about your town/city!

Please: If you don't receive something from me, private message me.

It is likely that it is lost in the mail or just delayed, as I usually send out swaps during the first two days after partners are assigned. I will appreciate a private message asking to resend immensely, and will extend the courtesy to all of you out there as well ๐Ÿ˜ŠThank you! I take pride in my swaps and getting them to their homes as quickly as possible.

SF Correspondence Society

I run a letter writing group called the San Francisco Correspondence Society. We love everything about handwritten correspondence, from the stationery to the postage! We host socials for members to meet and write letters, and soon I will be opening up a snail mail shop on our website to buy artistamps, stationery, and more!

You can visit our website to learn more: SF Correspondence Society website and our Instagram is very active: @sfcorrespondence :)

And if you are in the Bay Area, consider joining! It's a fun group.
