About Me

Heya! My name is Lea, Iโ€™m a 24 year old graphic designer/tea fiend/huge nerd/Librarian-in-Training from Richmond, VA. If you're from VA too, check out the Virginia Craft Club!

I love books, reading, writing, and my job at the library! I have a ton of varied interests, including but not limited to:

  • Papercrafts
  • D&D
  • Cooking
  • Baking
  • Reading & Writing
  • Board Games
  • Plants
  • Tea & Coffee
  • Star Trek
  • Studio Ghibli
  • Thrifting
  • Scuba Diving
  • Travel
  • Cosplay
  • Tarot/Witchiness

Favorite Music

Lo-fi chillhop beats to relax/study to, Folk, Filk!, Punk, Metal, Alt; All time favorites include Lord Huron, Protest the Hero, The Wonder Years, The Oh Hellos, and The Devil Makes Three

Going to the BlueRidge Rock Festival this fall and can't wait!! Also have you heard the newest song by Sleep Token, Alkaline? It's SO GOOOOOD!

P.S. I want to learn more about KPOP but idk where to start!

Favorite Books

  • The Long Way To a Small, Angry Planet
  • Get In Trouble
  • North American Lake Monsters
  • Sci Fi Anthologies
  • Uprooted
  • Anne of Green Gables
  • Nubia: real one
  • The Tea Dragon Society

I've read over 100 books this year - check out my Goodreads! I tend to read a lot of YA/Middlegrade since that is the age group I work with. ย 

Aesthetic, Likes & Dislikes

  • Overall, I would say my aesthetic is vintage and modern combined. I love the juxtaposition!
  • I REALLY love Flow magazine and the flow book for paper lovers but it's hard to find Flow stuff where I live
  • I love plants, nature, space, witchy stuff, cats, tea, and books, so anything with those motifs always makes me super happy!
  • Sharks are my favorite animal! I also really like possum, raccoon, and cat motifs
  • I am OBSESSED with Pusheen the Cat
  • My birthday is in October, I love the fall, and Halloween is my favorite holiday! I appreciate Halloween and fall-themed stuff year-round.

  • I love cryptids, especially mothman - I have several cryptid pins, mothman mugs, and even made an intro to cryptids zine! (P.S. Now I made a cryptid swap group, check it out!
  • I like goth aesthetic stuff, eldritch horror stuff, ghosts, monsters, paranormal, general spookiness~
  • Cottage core is also great!!
  • My favorite colors are black, purples, blues, and greens, and metallics. But I love all colors! I think monochromatic color palettes are super cool, and I also like rainbows.
  • I love graphic design, type elements, and illustrative lettering. Jessica Hische and Aaron Draplin are two of my favorite graphic designers today, and I am fascinated by vintage branding/packaging/type.
  • I don't mind inappropriate or snarky designs! (I thrifted this set of postcards for 10c and I am in love: Baron Von Fancy)

ย 

Dislikes:

  • I don't really like paisley
  • I don't like dolls... they creep me out!
  • Not a fan of kid/reward/teacher stickers, unless it's specific to my likes
  • No planner items, please! I don't really use them
  • No rose scents or flavours
  • No skincare products (except from Lush, I have sensitive skin and that's the only brand that doesn't make me break out)
  • Not a big fan of plain chamomile teas (which is funny because I have a chamomile tattoo)
    ย 

Wishlist

Supplies I'm currently using a lot of or really wishing I had.

-FLOW magazines, cutouts, or papers! (I can't find these anywhere so if you have any old flow magazines, scraps, or cutouts, I'd love them) - Maggie Holmes anything - Chipboard embellishments - Stickers or washi tape with books, tea, mushrooms, typewriters - Typewriter die cuts! - Envelopes of any size - Shaker supplies - Eyelets - Enamel dots - Nuvo drops (partial bottles are fine too! I just really want to try them out) - Tarot card stickers or stamps - Stamped images - Paper with forest/trees (I can't find this anywhere for some reason!) - Unused US stamps

Allergies

I'm very allergic to dairy, and I am not a fan of rose scented or flavoured things. Sorry! I like it in theory, but it's just not my thing (it gives me a headache).

I keep a (mostly) vegan diet, but I'm not terribly strict about it.

Re: other people's allergies, I have a VERY fluffy Australian Shepard named Austin! I try my very best to keep his hair out of my swaps but he is a furry beast... apologies in advance if he sends you a little fluff as an extra.

Decos

Last signers, international, and excess welcome. I am in need of extra decos as I just passed on quite a few, so send them my way!!

Hi Lea, thank you so much for the grid washi and I love your clever and witty Zine of Angry Haikus! I love the '"Cool Stuff Inside" stamp, where did you get it? For the life of me I cannot remember if I sent you my MTV zine?

Profile Deco Swap - Fairy (or Faery) Day

Have a wonderful day! Hugs, Diane

bethe on Jun 29, 2021:

Hi Lea! Thank you for the heart rating on the Mini Happy Mail Swap #5! I purchased the washi from different locations and they were each part of a set. If I recall correctly, the book and mushroom washi were from Amazon and the tea and typewriter from Hobby Lobby. I read your profile and wish list and just had to share!!
