About Me

Hey there, I’m Adriana! I'm 28 and I live with my boyfriend of 5 years and our two perfect cats, Cooper and Bagels. I'm a 20+ year resident of Florida and currently live in Clearwater, famed for its beaches and the creepy cult that took over our downtown area haha. I've almost graduated from my Public Policy and Administration bachelors program but the pandemic made me realize I wanted to slow down and really work with what I love and value. Then I figured out that includes a lot, so now I'm just allowing myself to learn and explore and just do what I want to do! And basically, that just means hanging out with a lot of plants and dirt :)

How I Craft

I really only do paper crafting and mail art. I love spending time on making an interesting and eye catching envelope when I can and often do so even when the swap doesn’t call for it, because that’s half the fun for me! I love collages but I use everything from washi and stickers to recycled bits of ephemera and paints. I wouldn’t call myself a talented artist, but I put a lot of love and effort into my work and I think it results in something pretty cool :) I don’t have much of a need for supplies for other art forms like knitting or jewelry making- my creativity is certainly a very 2D kind. However if you have a special bit of ribbon, twine, or a stunning bead you’d like to share just for it’s individual beauty, I can appreciate that :) I’ve received such odd surprises that have become treasured parts of my snail mail collection, I’ll appreciate anything sent with love!

Comment: Adriana~ Thank you for your Halloween Card #13. I loved the envelope decorations~ just perfect! I also loved the packet of Blue Lotus herbs and suggestions for use!! I loved the Wax Seal you sent and absolutely adore the glassine envelope and Earth Element tag! Do you buy your envelopes or do you make them? If you purchase them, do you mind sharing your source? I love that you are right across the bay from me, too!!! Thank you, again, for your Happy Halloween swap thoughtfulness! Be Blessed!!! Karen Rinehart
Response: Hey Karen! I wish I had a source for you, I actually got a giant bag of them from a friend of a friend who was decluttering- they were all just loose in a publix bag!

Comment: Thansk for the great Smokey Bear cut and paste postcard! It makes me curious about the Smithsonian magazine issue that it came from. I'm glad that Ian missed you... I certainly understand your relief having been through, and been missed by, a few hurricanes myself. Best wishes!
