Hi there! 👋😊
My name is Mel and I am a pet mommy, living in an old, (1800's) farmhouse in rural, northeastern PA with my roommate, a dog and 3 cats.
I collect ATC's, books, dolls, Eeyore, eye shadow pallets, handbags, hand-made by you things, hat boxes & other pretty boxes, journals, lace, pens, Pioneer Woman, planners & planner accessories, plushies of my favorite animals, stationery, stickers, tarot decks (for the artwork) & washi tape.
I suffer from agoraphobia, depression, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder and PTSD therefore do not leave my home very often.
I am also a type 2 diabetic with fibromyalgia, neuropathy, and a slew of other health issues. I am a stage 1 uterine cancer survivor! I am soon to be getting tested for lupus. HOWEVER, I do not let my physical/mental health issues define me as a person and I do not talk about them very often unless something major is going on. I like to try my best to remain as positive and upbeat as possible because life is too short to not be as happy as you can be.
I do the majority of my shopping online, especially for happy mail goodies. 😊 Etsy is my favorite site to shop at! So many cute and gorgeous things! 💙
Happy mail is my favorite way to connect with the outside world and I love putting together special packages to make people smile.
I try really hard to put thought into each and every package I send to make it special for the person receiving it.
Thank you for taking the time to read and I look forward to swapping with you all. Have a beautiful and blessed day. 🥰
Matchboxes (Large or small.)
I love almost all colors, but my favorites would have to be teal/turquoise, purple and pink. (I love all shades of those colors!) I also love metallic colors, especially gold and color combos: pink/gold, purple/gold, black/gold and blue/silver. But seriously... I love all the colors. :)
My favorite themes would be anything to do with any of the following:
Alice In wonderland
Breakfast At Tiffany's

Tea (Individually sealed bags only, please.)
I am allergic to chamomile, seafood, walnuts, cigarette smoke & bees, so please do not send me any of those things... especially the bees!
I am type 2 diabetic, so please, no food items.
As for "dislikes"... there is not much I dislike, but the two biggest things for me would be anything satanic or anything to do with animal cruelty. Other than that, I am a pretty open-minded and non-judgemental type of person. :)
I love, love, LOVE books and tend to "hoard" them.
