I love kawaii, happy snail mail and am looking to meet new friends and pen pals -- I haven't done mail fun since my youth. I originally joined swap bot because I heard there were fun tea swaps. I love sending teas and receiving teas. I love getting a sweet letter or a lovely ATC in the mail that was made for me as well as filling out decos for others~ Snail mail art and penpalling (and crafts!) sometimes seem like such long lost art forms. I'm glad to join group that appreciates them!

I’m a blogger, cat hugger, internet sunshine-spreader, artist, and heart stylist that knows what it’s like to feel stuck. I’m a “mama” and am spoiled with art by my contemporary realism painter husband, in a home from 1912 that sits in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. I love thrift shopping, zines, sugar, and brainstorming sessions. I’m endlessly inspired to try and find new things for us to go gaga over and my obsession with design knows no limits.
In life, things can come at you so fast that you lose your grounding. Sometimes it feels as though no one understands the obsessions and the heart-ache. I understand.
My past was painful so I’m on a mission to show others another option. I continue to collage my future with love and adoration for the beautiful world we share and the many different people and ideas that we share it with. I’m always learning new ways to see the world and to enjoy life in a way I never dreamed of back then. My writing, artwork, and design are my obsessions and what I pour my soul into during my workday; my family is what I pour it into every other moment.
The most precious thing I’ve learned on my journey is that we don’t have to live in darkness; we can choose to live in color.
