I'm here to help keep snail-mail alive. I've "met" some wonderful people here and consider them friends. With that said, I try to put a bit of care and thought into swaps and encourage the same.

As far as hearts go, I give them for TPG: thoughtfulness (yours), presentation (yours), and giddiness (mine). I don't need extras with swaps since I'm in a constant state of downsizing. I prefer quality over quantity. But if I send you extras, it's because I have something I think you can use (i.e., you're helping me downsize). I love decorated envies, especially when they feature your artwork.

Note: I'm allergic to cigar/ette smoke, and anything dusty gets me sneezing, too. So please don't send smoke or dust my way.


  • colors: red, grey, yellow, aqua, purple & orange together
  • places: πŸ’— Scotland & England (hope to return)
  • flat stuff: colorful unused USA postage, personalized swap cards and address labels, anything BTS
  • not-so-flat stuff: measuring spoons, gel pens, glue-dots, anything BTS :-)
  • creativity: sewing & wreathmaking. Love pre-cuts and high-quality quilting cottons (Dashwood, Dear Stella, Art Gallery, Windham). Am a certified fabric hoarder.
  • themes: UK, woodlandia, outer space, UFO/UAPs, k-pop, chalkboard art, echinacea
  • book collections: James Thurber, Clare Turlay Newberry, Shel Silverstein, Edward Gorey, Stephen King, Brian Wildsmith
  • stationery: anything literature-themed, colorful envelopes, kawaii, BTS of course
  • washi tape: kawaii, woodland animals, Japanese, nature scenes
  • mail art: love original doodles, colorful washi, and collage on my mail
  • animation: Chicken Run, Shaun the Sheep, Teen Titans Go!, Up, Wallace & Gromit, The LEGO Movie, The Book of Life
  • movies: About Time, Parasite, Being There, To Kill a Mockingbird, Best in Show, North by Northwest, The Departed, Fargo, Stepbrothers, Enchanted April

  • Japanese kawaii: Favorite brands are Papier Platz, Saien, and Q-Lia. Kutusita Nyanko, Sumikko Gurashi, and anything Shinzi Katoh top my wish list. (Love Pusheen, also, but it's not Japanese.) Don't have much of a need for small kawaii memos but do enjoy sticker flakes/sheets.
  • animals: I'm an animal lover and on some days prefer them to people. Cats are my favorites (have 1), but I'm also a fan of donkeys, alpacas, Highland cows, foxes, owls, sheep, dogs, and unicorns (have 0).
