About Me

My name is Missy. I am a wedding photographer. I started penpalling in February, 2020, and have found it a great way to make new friends. It's also been a fresh new way to fuel my creative side.
I just turned 50 and live in Illinois with my husband and 2 children. I grew up in northern Wisconsin and it is truly one of the prettiest places I have ever been (imo) :)

Favorite bug - luna moth

Favorite animal - Orangutan, ducks, whales, jellyfish, and polled herefords

Favorite flower - Dahlia and Peony

Favorite color - blue, olive, peony, and mustard

I tend to gravitate towards a lot of different styles, but nature and everyday life either vintage or not, makes me happy. I really like anything watercolor, clean and modern, torn and vintage, quality stickers are cool, and I LOVE sending postage stamps. One of my favorite parts of sending a letter is choosing the stamp to put on it. Call me odd.

Walking out to the mailbox to find a pretty letter in it is the best. Anyone else bummed when it's a national holiday and there's no mail?

@postalstamplife and @misselitephoto on Insta.

Would like to hear your favorite thing about living where you live. Honest answer, not what you think I would like to hear. :)

Please note: My address is correct as is with the "W" in the postal code. A lot of people ask me about that. :)

I Love

-Original Contemporary Art - Watercolor, Acrylic, etc...

  • Vintage Ephemera of botanicals, bugs, animals, fish, and marine life.

  • beautiful, vintage stickers (2 inches and larger)

  • Modern, comtemporary art stickers, papers, and stamps.

  • Vintage or new unused USA postage stamps

  • Pretty, vintage, or cool address labels

  • Blank watercolor papers, watercolor bags, or watercolor envelopes (the thicker the better and homemade is 100)

  • Heartfelt letters and notes.

  • Unusual or rare items I like - Polled hereford cattle (they have the white face and red body)

About My Swaps

I am very punctual and I always try to send my swaps out early, before the deadline. If someone doesn't receive one of my swaps within 3 weeks after the deadline date, please let me know right away, before rating me for the swap. I will gladly send out a replacement. I used to say 2 weeks, but the mail has been sporadic lately.

Please be kind. Things happen in life. Reach out first if you feel something is not a 5 for any reason.

Currently Excited About....

  • Vintage stickers or stickers that look vintage
  • John James Audubon images/vintage birds
  • Mushrooms (vintage paper, stickers, notes)
  • Handmade paper or thick quality watercolor papers.
  • Pretty or Cute Address Labels (blank I can address to my penpals on the front of my envelopes)
  • Photo pro magazines (or black and white images torn from them)
  • Unused vintage USA stamps
  • Vintage circus themed items
  • Ducks, whales (save the whales)
  • 4x6, or larger, colorful envelopes. Particularly looking for black or blue.
  • Quality writing utensils (what's your favorite pen to write your letters?)

Tea Swaps

I LOVE all teas, but mostly drink herbal. However, if you only have black or green teas, that's 100% fine. There are other tea drinkers in the house. My favorite right now is Rooibos or "red bush" tea. My least favorite right now is Chamomile.

Collections:

Currently collecting Pokemon cards for my son, so if you have any laying around.... even one is great.

Comment: Missy, I apologize for the late rating...I had a bad fall and gave myself a concussion, and haven't been in the craft room very much (the headache!)...I want you to know that it's beautiful! Thank you also for the spectacular bunch of extras you sent. (Apparently I'm in my second childhood, and the extras are so thrilling...I should be embarrassed to admit that!)
Response: Hope you are recovering and so glad you enjoyed the swap. :)
