Hi all! My name is Zaira, I'm 25 and moved to Washington state to live off grid in a canvas wall tent in the woods, with my partner B and our two cats! I greatly value the elements and connection between nature/spirit. I've been a practicing green / hedge witch for nearly 10 years and enjoy deep research and discussion about it. My passions are gardening, homesteading, ecstatic dance and mixed media art. I have made bullet journals and junk journals for several years and got into snail mail swaps to extend my art and make it for specific people besides myself! I tend to prefer a messy, junk journal type page full of layered handmade features. If you only like premade cards or incredibly neat work, we may not be good partners. However if you enjoy what I sent you, I'd love to be regular penpals, just let me know and I will add you to my recurring list! I am in this for the art prompts and creative growth as well as to make awesome connections with people! I'd also love to do private swaps especially with magickal themes or for our significant others/kids.
We are a foster family and often have boys ages 3-15 in our home. Typically they come with little to no personal belongings so we are always looking for toys, books, craft supplies, and activities for them. If you are interested in donating or learning more, feel free to message me or check out the foster care wishlist above for items they need!
I've traded with the following countries so far and would LOVE to add more to the list! USA, Canada, Indonesia, Spain, Croatia, Portugal, UK, Brazil, Netherlands, Sweden, Italy, Australia, Belarus, France, Germany, Greece, Finland, South Africa, Russia
If you ever do not receive something from me please let me know! I live in a small town that sometimes does funky things with mail but I always mark "sent" the day I drop it off!
*I lost a lot of mail sent off during the beginning of this year, as did several other locals I've talked to. We have filed formal complaints but there's not much else we can do! If something did not arrive I will always try to make it right but please try to act with patience and consideration.
5/20/21 Going through an incredibly traumatic death in the family and may be delayed. Please forgive and be patient. I will send every swap and make them extra special but at the moment my focus is elsewhere. I'll be back and caught up soon.
