About Me

Hello, I’m Serviana. I have been crafting practically most of my life. In early 2020 I started my pen palling journey and since then, I have been ‘meeting’ people around the world through letters and I have been enjoying it so much. I love collecting ephemera, stickers, all stationery items you name it! I also journal regularly so I could also use my stationery collection and to help me unwind after a long day.

I enjoy making tags, stickers, and watercolours. I normally mix these elements in my happy mails / packages I sent to my penpals. I always decorate the envelopes, either minimally or heavily, even though it’s not required.

I hope I can share my joy of paper addiction & bring smiles to my partners.. 🧡

NOTE: I’m open to private swaps for happymails. Please drop me a message if you want to do one with me. 💌

I created a group called “Wax Seals & Dried Flowers Enthusiasts” (see on the right hand side of this page). Please join if it suits you.

My HOBBIES include crafting, journaling, playing piano / classical music, creating macramé items. In the past, I used to cross-stitch as well as create macramé items (such as wall hangers, keychains, dreamcatchers).

I have INTEREST in nature, history, classics, cultures, languages.

Wish List

These things win my heart straight away when I find in my mail: old postcards with handwriting & date stamp, authentic vintage tickets, ledgers, letters, handmade papers, vintage laces.
