About Me

Hei!

I am a student in my early 20's, whose favourite colour is green. Hoping to spread the joy of receiving a letter in the mail!

Things I like :
  • Green Hellebores and Tuberoses
  • Old botanical illustrations
  • Expanding collection about colour and pigments
  • Reading about medival art and coulture
  • Interior design, more specifically; Hollywood regency and mid-century modern.
  • Knitting socks in various designs.
  • Journaling
  • Coffee
  • Green tea
  • Some of the most memorable books I read last year:
    • Beautiful Losers by Leonard Cohen
    • Blue Horses by Mary Oliver
    • Empire of Senseless by Kathy Acker

I own two Traveler's notebooks in Vegan leather (aka plastic). One is for my artsy every day diary, a regular size journal. I try to keep the theme close to nature and art. I also have journals that I do not decorate.

Things I like in Journaling
  • fountain pens
  • floral stickers
  • art stickers (e.g. Van Gogh art stickers)
  • cute post-it's and post cards
  • I use a lot of botanical and astrological references to draw flowers and constellations.

My personal size journal is for the more boring stuff, like to do lists and school work, so I like to spice things up with small stickers and strips of washi.

Favorite Books

2019 Front Runner (so far): Beautiful Losers by Leonard Cohen - The Moon and the Sixpence by W. Somerset Maugham - The Lord Of the Rings -trilogy by Tolkien - The Distance of the Moon - short story by Italo Calvino (a short story)

Favorite Music

Sigur Rós, The Smiths, and Amanda Palmer are some whose whole albums often play at the background in my house. Everything from metal to Disney goes!

lil bit more of me

I am 22 going on 80, drinking way too much coffee, reading, an playing video games. Well...now everything is on pause while I wait for my finger splints. Also obsessing over my strawberry childer growing on my livingroom!

Lately

My interest into mindfulness has grown a tremendously in the past 6 months. I have found walking meditations to be the most helpful for myself. Been playing a lot of Eastshade, meditatig with Plyne (pc)and Pokemon and eating lingonberry porrige.

I am on sickleave for now until the reason why my joints hypermobility is suddenly causing me a lot of problems and taking a toll on my mobility. Gudetama has been my soul sister this year abd been a big part of my last two journals.

I have already gotten new finger splints and other splints for my hand that make my handwriting a lil different from what it was and it is taking me a lot of time to get used to.

Future

I am hoping to switch fields of study in the next year or so from International Business to Art History to later continue to Art Business' Master's Degree.

NOTE

Even though I love receiving tea, I am terribly
ALLERGIC to:

  • Pineapple
  • Wheat
  • Dairy
  • Eggs
  • Banana
  • Hazelnut
  • Paprika
  • Carrots

Because of my allergies I don't want to receive any items of food. Some artificial sweeteners can also cause migraines on me.

Do NOT send
  • Butterflies
  • Snails
  • Children's stickers
  • Religious items or texts

.

Wishlist

  • Stamps (used post and for ink stamping)
  • Pretty papers
  • pre-cut diecuts
  • vintage book pages
  • stickers
  • project life cards
  • things for a Traveler's journal (I have regular and personal sizes)
  • wax seals
  • letter writing paper and sets
  • atlas'
  • green (dark emerald and pine shades) things; plants, flowers, trees, stones, paper, stickers, etc.
  • Short stories, book pages, etc.

Anything I can use to make cute flipbooks and happy mail :)

Comment: Thank you for the lovely things, I have an odd feeling the peach themed memo's were something I had sent out in the course of these happy mail swaps. I love them, Ended up with four of the same book and have been sharing them with others loads. No surprise one has come back. They are ace. I love the tarot cards and the sweets. Thank you so much for this swap.
Response: I bought the peach memo a couple months back to use in journaling. Good thing the rest weren't something you already own :)
