About Me

I'm Elizabeth, 35, currently living in the very southern tip of Illinois, and very excited to climb out of my hermit hole to meet new swap friends! I've been creative journaling for years without realizing that there was an entire community of people who love happy mail and swapping things just as much as I do!

As for me, I identify as a stationery hoarder, I've got one teenage son, and a very fluffy cat. We live a quiet life in a quiet town in the middle of nowhere, and it's honestly pretty great :)

Currently, I'm working in both an art journal and a vintage theme junk journal as well as several daily writing journals. I make my own stationery and really enjoy most paper crafts as well as some light watercolor painting and just a tiny bit of line drawing.

If anyone is interested in swapping letters or even just postcards let me know! I'm a huge introvert, but I love meeting new people from different cultures so I'm open to exchanges from anywhere and everywhere!

Newest Obsessions

*Help me! I want to set up my Christmas Tree in October and my family thinks it's a problem! -Captain's log day 192 with the scrooges: Christmas tree has been successfully installed in the living room despite family protest. Everyone loves it, I'm sure of it :)

*The color teal.



*Crystals and Stones

*Textured Paper

*Miniature Painting

*Board Games!

*Mystery Bags

*Advent Calendars


*Journaling: as previously stated, and I'm really interested in creative pen palling.

*Art: Your own, famous artworks, recommendations, tips and tricks ... really anything to do with it I would be glad for you to share with me!

*Traveling: Sometimes it doesn't have to be a physical trip. I've taken many great journeys through novels so send me your latest favorites :)

*Vintage things: I enjoy themed things, but I really love actual vintage items like old letters and tickets! I'm also into cottagecore recently for some reason.

*Nature/botanicals: I've got a flower press and love to use it!

*Photographs: I love to receive photographs of any kind, but especially polaroids. I don't know why, they just tickle me pink!

*Films, music, and novels: All genres. Seriously...I can find something to like in just about all of them.

*My son is a teenager and thinks my snail mail obsession is silly, so please save children's items for mothers with small children :)_

Wish List

This is only here because I never want anyone to be anxious when they are picking something out to send to me. It is by no means the entire list of things I would like and if none of it matches your style or personal aesthetic don't worry! I would rather have something that is authentically you, than anything on this list! Send me something wacky and then tell me why! I'll love it!

*Washi stickers and tape


*Interesting paper scraps

*Wax seals

*Pressed flowers

*Things unique to where you live

*Unused Postcards (I'm having a hard time finding them in my area right now)


*Vintage Ephemera

*Stickers of people or architecture

*Book pages in languages other than English

*Shaped Paperclips

*Stamped images and phrases

*Address Labels

*Recipe Cards

Christmas Stuff and Things

This is for the 2022 season and is by no means an exhaustive list of things that I like, just some general things that I think would make swapping easier for my partner. However, I really like to try new things like foreign candy and salty things so don't be afraid to send something different! Also I linked an Amazon and Etsy wishlist just in case none of this floats your boat! Note, there is a secondary Etsy Wishlist just for miniatures I'd like to paint if anyone is interested in browsing that, any one of them would thrill me!

*I love teas, hot chocolate, and flavored coffee!

*I'm a big fan of sour things

*A million times yes, to all things chocolate

*I'm not allergic to anything food related

*I like "Cozy and Comforting" scents as classified by the highly scientific bath and body works scale. Think vanilla bean and butterscotch, but no cinnamon please, it gives my son headaches!

*I'm totally down for some private Christmas swaps! Just DM me and I'll set it up!

*I don't really wear makeup, but I love lip glosses and chapsticks!

*Art supplies are always my jam!
