About Me

๐Ÿ‘‹๐ŸฝHello!

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

I work as a graphic designer in the tech industry and love it! However, most of my work is digital therefore I looove getting back into analog hobbies of mine, such as snail mail and mail art. 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 25, I was born in the Napa Valley (yay for wine country) 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!)

  • Collecting stickers and gift tags (not really into puffy stickers, love animal, floral, nature and snail-mail related ones! love mrs grossman's too)

  • Traveling (favorite places are Florence, Paris, and Tulum in Mexico)

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

  • Calligraphy (I'm a beginner)

  • Art and design (I love impressionist art like Monet, Degas, Cรฉzanne, Matisse)

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

  • Typewriters (I own an Olympia DeLuxe Cursive one)

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.

Hello,

Thank you for joining my swap. I'm leaving you flowers for the March, Plant A Flower Day Profile Swap. I hope your week is going well.

A flower cannot blossom without sunshine, and man cannot live without love.

If we could see the miracle of a single flower, clearly our whole life would change.
