About Me

Hello! I'm Phoenix, a young woman currently living in Oregon. I've been all over America and lived in many of its states. My favorite places were always small towns nestled in the mountains or forests. I'm also partial to the New Mexico desert as that's the place of my birth. My father was very bad so my mum and I left him when I was young. We spent years just traveling around America and even ended up in Mexico for a bit. Now I (along with my mum and younger brother) live near a major city and so I try to travel through snail mail. We've just now moved farther out from the city and it's wonderful. It's like a small town here and so very beautiful. It's the best parts of the country with just a touch of city. And now I'm able to go out and explore nature again which is absolutely amazing. I'm also very interested in cooking and baking. My family and I are plant-based (vegan) and so I'm always making meals and snacks. It's a nice stress reliever and it's just so much fun. My family is very important to me, they've been through a lot, especially my mum. So I try really hard to take care of her and my brother and our many cats, though I'm usually the one being taken care of more often then not. I'm not currently in school due to my mental and physical health so I have a lot of time on my hands. I absolutely love gift giving and always try to find the perfect thing that will make who I'm gifting smile. I just really want to spread love and positivity because there's honestly too much pain and sadness and hurt in this world. That's why I thought I would try this site, I hope I can make at least one person happy if not more. I also love receiving mail.

Favorite Music

I love most music, especially if it's poetic. Some of my favorites are Morrissey, John Denver, Stars, Owl City, The Postal Service, and Sky Sailing. There's always music in my home and it's been that way since I was small. Whether we're cooking or cleaning or just playing a card game, there's always some type of music playing. And a lot of the music that's played brings me back to my wildly wonderful childhood. Music is very important to me. Bob Dylan was my first concert. And my mum loves to tell me about her youth when she followed the Grateful Dead around. Those are still some of my favorite stories. Morrissey is my absolute favorite though, he helped me through a difficult time in highschool and is still helping me with my mental health. My mum's gotten me tickets the last two times he came to my city and it was so wonderful. She actually really likes him too.

Favorite Books

Books (and really any literature) will always be close to my heart. My father read Where the Wild Things Are over and over to my mother during my birth. And I still have my favorite books from when I was a child, tattered though they may be. The fantasy genre is my very favorite, I love when there's magic and old languages. I don't care too much for these modern times and so when a book takes place ages ago (or even so far into the future technology is gone) I adore it. It also helps if there's just a hint of romance but I mostly love the adventure. I also adore historical fiction and especially if it's paired with fantasy. Though to be honest, I"ll read most anything (including dictionaries and textbooks).

Favorite Art

Art has always been in my life and I love every medium. But collages are my favorite. I love hunting through piles of magazines for the perfect word or image. I also love art journals. There's just so much potential. I always have a personal art journal that I'm working on, it gives me great satisfaction to create fat journals full of pretty things. And I usually make my own envelopes when I'm sending flat mail otherwise I'll decorate the envelope, mail art is a love of mine. As for receiving crafts and art, as long as it's from the heart I'll be sure to love it.

Favorite Movies & Such

I'm more interested in art or reading but when I do watch something it's usually animated like a Studio Ghibli film. I do spend time on YouTube either looking for snail mail ideas or recipes. My favorite YouTube artist is Jonna Jinton, I play her kulning (ancient Swedish herdingcall) videos on a loop a lot. I am also a proud lover of Disney especially their older movies like Cinderella and Alice In Wonderland.

Not A Fan

I'm really open to receiving most things except anything to do with meat, items containing animal by products (including honey or beeswax), items tested on animals, items containing palm oil, or anything to do with hate.

A Small Note

I do have a few mental illnesses with PTSD being one of them. I kindly ask that there is no mention of modern weaponry, violent crimes, murder, or hatred of any sort. I also do not wish to speak on my traumas, I only include this note so that I won't be unnecessarily triggered. Have a wonderful day.

A Short Update

I am now fully vaccinated as of May 20, 2021. 😊 I received the moderna vaccine and had minimal side effects. I do wish everyone well and hope we'll find a new "normal" soon. Much care to you and yours.

Comment: what a wonderful surprise I had when I returned home from visiting my daughter. They way you wrapped each present in plain brown paper with a string wrapped around, reminded me of when lived in Europe and how they would do that when I would just buy something at a gift store. Thank you for all the sweet items you sent.
Response: It's my very favorite way to package items so I'm glad you enjoyed that and I'll hope you'll find joy in the items. Thank you for the heart, have a most wonderful day.

Comment: Thank you for your letter! That's so cool that a reporter sparked interest from your IG! I've been working on a cottagecore/cottagegoth IG, but haven't posted much due to being pregnant and not really getting to wear the fashion (I'm into the fashion and lifestyle). No worries on the typed letter..I've been having to do the same since it's uncomfortable trying to write letters any other way for me right now!
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed my letter, thank you for the heart. I do hope you'll start to feel better soon, many well wishes for your pregnancy. <3
