About Me

Hi all! My name is Zaira, I'm 25 and live in the forest in Washington state, off grid in a canvas wall tent with my partner B and our two cats! I greatly value the elements and connection between nature/spirit. I've been a practicing green / hedge witch for nearly 10 years and enjoy deep research and discussion about it. My passions are gardening, homesteading, ecstatic dance and mixed media art. I have made bullet journals and junk journals for several years and got into snail mail swaps to extend my art and make it for specific people besides myself! I tend to prefer a messy, junk journal type page full of layered handmade features. If you only like premade cards or incredibly neat work, we may not be good partners. However if you enjoy what I sent you, I'd love to be regular penpals, just let me know and I will add you to my recurring list! I am in this for the art prompts and creative growth as well as to make awesome connections with people! I'd also love to do private swaps especially with magickal themes or for our significant others/kids.

I do have a 3yr old foster child in my life with no family for the holidays who would be over the moon with items of the following themes: Shaun the Sheep, Curious George, monsters, ghosts, farm animals, fish or cats. They love stuffed animals, wooden toys, sensory toys, play cars/trucks, and ANY kids books. (Wish list linked above)

Fav colors- GOLD, Earthy (green, brown, terracotta) and Bright (yellow, orange, teal, purple)

Postcards- Love non-touristy! If it is touristy I like a beautiful nature view or funky tourist trap (big road tripper here!) Would enjoy international postcards, photography, art, graffiti, nature, funny, abstract, metallic, quotes, jokes, shaped, holographic or sticker slapped. Loupaper "doodle" style pcs will make me happy dance!

I've traded with the following countries so far and would LOVE to add more to the list! USA, Canada, Indonesia, Spain, Croatia, Portugal, UK, Brazil, Netherlands, Sweden, Italy, Australia, Belarus, France, Germany, Greece, Finland, South Africa, Russia

If you ever do not receive something from me please let me know! I live in a small town that sometimes does funky things with mail but I always mark "sent" the day I drop it off!
