About Me

Hello, my name is Ellen! I'm in my late 20s, I'm married, I'm an animal lover, I have 4 pets!

As of Jan 2021, I'm officially in Remission!!

I love to eat and I love candy, gummies (apple, strawberry, cola), and snacks :D

If i'm in a gift swap and you don't know what to get me, snacks are always liked! My favorite flavors are strawberry, apple, chocolate; I like savory things too!

I really love to travel. I really love eggs.

My favorite animal is the Dragon, favorite color is blue, I don't enjoy coffee but I am all about tea! Christmas is my favorite holiday, I love the Christmas themed postage stamps!

I love gardening, sewing, knitting, quilting, painting (oils and acrylics), drawing, scrapbooking, papercrafting, all things crafty! I'm a board game and video game fanatic!

Big Nintendo fan :D I collect Pokemon Cards still!

I use penpalmanager.com to keep track of my pen pals, swaps (from all different sites), and letters!


I like YA, Fantasy, horror, thriller, Folk lore, Fairy Tales...I'm a huge Harry Potter fan (Slytherin here)!

OI, Manhwa, Webtoons

Things I like

I love to collect things! I collect cute stationery, washi tape, Pressed Pennies, All things Animal Crossing, cats, dragons, Pokemon...

I really like Kawaii things (like memo sheets, stickers, washi, letter sets, etc) and i'm not too picky :)

non-sheet face masks, candles, moomin cups,

...I adore anything Gudetama and cats!

Tea: I will enjoy most teas, but I don't like minty, herbal, or chai kinds! I don't drink any of those. Fruity ones are well enjoyed. I LOVE pickwick, Karel Capek brand, Lupicia Brand too.

I love hot chocolate, hot cocoa, any kind!

I love seeing those postage Moon landing stamps, the new Sun Science stamps (so cool), T Rex stamps, and Halloween/spooky silhouette stamps on envelopes!


I'm allergic to blueberries, pumpkin, and pineapples > <

I don't really like: Sheet face masks


Chai, Mint Tea, Herbal Tea

Dark Chocolate

smoky items or perfumes, the smell is so strong and gives me a headache

Religious Items

kiddie/baby items

I don't need pencils/markers/pens unless they're gel pens

I think I have enough journals now to last me a lifetime haha, too many to use

If you do not receive my swap, please tell me and we will get it fixed! If you do not contact me, how will I know?


Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely penpal letter.

Comment: Thank you! Sorry it took so many tries to get it to me! Not sure what that was all about. Received it today :)
Comment: Thank you so very much for your letter and surprise goodies. As we have a long weekend coming up, I will pop you a letter. Sounds like we have lots of activities in common. Thank you for the sea glass :-)

Comment: OMG thank you soo much Ellen!! You literally made my day! I can't stop being excited about it haha I loved everything :DD The envelope is so cute too! I will treasure it as well. You're such a creative person ^^ Also to answer your question about the meaning behind Yobi's name... The meaning behind his name is the following: It was back in quarantine. At first I thought that he has an owner because of his collar, but it ended up him being stray. He was always in my backyard even at like 3 AM haha. And I could always hear him thanks to his collar with a bell whenever he was outside, even in front of my door. It was almost like a doorbell. So from the Japanese word 'yobirin' which means bell so Yobi for short :33

Comment: Ellen, oh my goodness! When I first saw the envelope with all the Pokemon drawings on it, I geeked out! I plan on hanging it up on my art wall because it is so perfect! :D When I opened it up, my jaw dropped! Everything is so perfect! I love your letter that you wrote, I love the cards you chose and I love all of the extras you included! I also LOVE Arceus and I hope that there are more games like that one that come out as well! I wish I had stronger words to describe and truly portray how much I love everything! I am so beyond grateful and appreciative for everything! I am going to cherish it all forever<3 Everything is just so perfect in every single way!! I have tears of joy in my eyes because of this swap :,) I can't begin to thank you enough, but thank you so much again!! <3

Comment: I so enjoyed reading your calendar! Wonderful things you wrote… we are very far apart in age but alike. I enjoy working out (at home though). I love to dance- David dances with me sometimes. I have indoor only plants for now and I baby them. It seems that you and your husband share the same birthMONTH. Awww how nice! Thank you for all of the extras… I love them ALL. Happy future Swaps!
Comment: Thank you for your letter! So sorry for such a late rating, I am working my way through a giant snailmail pile. After having covid through the holidays, I put off snailmail mountain XD! 2021 was good to you! Let's hope 2022 is a great year ^^ I hope to do more traveling soon!
Comment: Your writing on this letter is *PERFECTION* ^^ I loved all the fun colors and little rilakkuma and friends stamps throughout! so cute! :) I can't believe they don't really teach cursive in schools anymore - a lost art form now!
Comment: When I finally make it to Japan, I would LOVE to go during one of the region's hanami! That would be incredible~
Comment: So sorry for such a late rating! Just getting through my snailmail mountain pile after having gone through covid. Thank you for a nice letter! ^^ Japan is on my bucket list for SURE! I hope you get a chance to go!

Happy New Year! It's February but I wanted you to know just how much I'm enjoying the fabric coaster you made for me back in the WIYM: Stuff the Stocking - October swap. It's still on my desk in the studio, being used daily and I think of you and your talents & generosity every single time I use it. Woo Hoo! The gift that keeps on giving. Love it!

Merry Christmas,
