About Me

Hey y’all! I’m Emily :) I’m in my late twenties and work as a full-time Graphic Designer and I also work in a retail “hippie” shop part-time in a small city in Louisiana. I have always loved crafts! I recently discovered the art form pen palling has taken on and I am looking to try my hand at this.

For a quick about me.. I most enjoy spending my time loving on my dogs, listening to music, and crafting. I think my style could probably best be described as “bohemian.” I’m a total sucker for anything with lace, bows, or florals.

I’ve been getting a lot of letter inspiration from Brittany McCowan and The Paper Letter Blog. I plan on creating pen pal packages with little goodies like washi tapes, stickers, mail tags, and playlists. Please let me know if you share any of these interests and would like to pen pal with me!

I also have an Instagram account under the same name if you want to check out anything else I’ve done 🙃

Favorite Music

CURRENTLY LISTENING TO: Incubus. Black Pumas. Reggae. Glen Hansard. Lo-Fi.

I LOVE MUSIC. I’m always looking to discover new bands. I’m open to almost any genre of music but I’m partial to rock (indie, alternative, classic, some metal), folk/Americana, cultural, instrumental, classical, and Studio Ghibli soundtracks.

Favorite Books

I am a HUFFLEPUFF. Harry Potter remains my favorite books because it sparked my love of reading when I was a kid. My dream life exists in the Harry Potter realm where my two dog babies would have been able to accompany me to Hogwarts. I’d love to receive any HP/Hufflepuff goodies!

Sadly I have not been reading much lately but I hope to get back into it very soon. Suggestions welcome ☺️ The last book I really enjoyed was The Little Paris Bookshop. Lots of insightful and thought-provoking quotes from that one.

I love fantastical worlds that make you use your imagination like LOTR and Eragon. I also like thriller/suspense or romance novels.

I like really enjoy historical fiction (also currently reading The Dress Maker) as well as memoirs like A Long Way Gone.

One could say I have a major Flow Magazine obsession.....💕 it’s just so beautiful.

I love listening to Podcasts and I feel like that could be categorized in this group. Dr. Death, Dirty John, Up and Vanished, Serial, S-Town, Someone Knows Something, Death in Ice Valley, and Thinking Sideways are some of my favorites.

In addition to podcasts, I’ve been listening to The Moth talks. I bought a published book of The Moth stories and have fallen in love with it. If you’re unfamiliar with The Moth, you should look it up!

Favorite Movies

Honestly, there’s way too many to list so here are some top favorites I can think of...

CLASSICS: Jurassic Park, Jaws, The Shining, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

COMEDIES: Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Nacho Libre, Shaun of the Dead

ACTION: The Bourne Series

FANTASY: Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Kubo and the Two Strings

ROMANCE: You’ve Got Mail, When Harry Met Sally, The Holiday



ANIME: Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Castle in the Sky, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, Howl’s Moving Castle, Ponyo, Spirited Away

Favorite Television

Favorite Crafts

I’m currently crafting miniature things like mini journals, mini paper houses, mini dream catchers, and researching mini mail ideas. I also have an Amish knot rug made with old t-shirts in progress.

Fun Fact: I LOVE tiny things! I always have. I just find them so adorable!

Working on watercolors, whipping up some homemade essential oil bath salts and scrubs, and I’m looking forward to starting my pen pal journey!

Favorite Animals

I LOVE ANIMALS. I’m definitely a dog person. I spoil mine shamelessly and I find no fault in that 😌

In addition to pups, I’m definitely partial to the cute, fuzzy, and cuddly, but I’m obsessed with elephants, orcas, and deer. if you send me anything with elephants, orca, or deer on it, there’s a 100% chance I will scream with elation


CURRENT FAVORITE: Rhododendron Tea 💕

I’m willing to try any type of tea! I love black teas, white teas, green teas, herbals, whatever! Any teas you might send would be greatly appreciated!

side note: not a fan of caramel... in any form


I LOVE CULTURES. I definitely am looking for pen pals and swaps from various countries.

Sadly, I only speak English and my high school Spanish classes have left me with “Me gusta la playa y pina coladas.” And “la hoja de papel.” i definitely want to broaden my Spanish!! 🤣

I have always been intrigued by cultural customs and traditions, artwork, music, clothing, etc. I am fascinated by the people I share this world with!

I’m also convinced Disney World’s Epcot was made just for me.


I LOVE TRAVELLING. I haven’t been to nearly as many places on my bucket list as I would like, but I plan to make it to all of them someday.

My top ideal travels I want right now are Bali, New Zealand, Scotland, India, Japan, Greece, Italy, and the US west coast.

Comment: Emily, I received your mail on time and a while ago. Thanks for waiting for me to score you, as I like to wait sometimes to sit and read my mail because I like to enjoy reading it and not feel rushed. This is one of the most beautiful mails I ever received. I am new to snailing/swap bot in general and crafty things, and when I saw your mail I fell in love. It has everything I love - floral, flowers, pink, crochet, bows, just wow. I literally couldn't stop smiling looking at it. Had to show my husband. It was totally my cup of tea, and thanks so much. I never seen anything like it since I am new to all of this, but I hope to learn about the type of mail you did, and become as crafty as you are. It looks so nice that I do not want to mess it up. I am looking forward to enjoying everything you included in the mail. Thanks again. I appreciate it and maybe will see you around in the swaps or message you sometime. I see you are fairly new too. I hope you enjoy yourself on here as well :).
Response: I am so glad you like it!! I had a lot of fun making yours because it was in my style as well ☺️ I hope you enjoy all the extras! *also, the mini doily and the burlap bow should be easy to remove in case you want to use those on a different project. 💕
