About Me

๐Ÿ‘‹๐ŸฝHello! I am new to swap-bot. Thanks for visiting my profile!

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:

  • Collecting and using vintage postage stamps (philately)

  • Letterpress and stationery (love anything gold foil, pretty illustration, or snail-mail related!)

  • Collecting stickers and gift tags (not really into puffy stickers, love animal and snail-mail related ones!)

  • Traveling (favorites are Florence, Paris, and Tulum)

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

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

  • 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 a few days before the "sent by" deadline date. I appreciate that immensely, and will extend that favor 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.

Comment: Thanks for the lovely PC and the interesting words. The opposite of sesquipedalianism would be Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia, the fear of long words.

Comment: Great card!!! Thank you very much. Does that size card take that much postage? Love the fun facts too. Only rode the cable car twice when on two visits.
Response: Hi! So glad you liked it! Yes, anything over 4x6 inches takes at least the standard rate in postage for letters :)

Comment: Hi Micaela! Thank you for your lovely started notecard! Was wildly exciting seeing it and your lovely hadnwriting addressing the envie with such a lonely free style hand! I enjoyed the note you wrote me as well as, the tea bag from the good earth company! I remember not that long ago the Sweet and Spcy was made by the Good Earth but in a different label. I remember that so well and i do enjoy the flavor as it is very strong compared to other teas. So that you for the tea bag and what a gift it is.1. Thank you and hope you are having a wonderful New Year 2019!

Comment: Thank you for the bravo-cado card. I have never been to San Francisco before. I lived in Paramount, California for awhile and loved it. We are thinking of going to Disneyland this summer. It's been a long time since we've been there.
