Welcome!

Big Stars

Hi!! I'm Milo, and I've fallen deeply in love with swaps and mail art! I am 21 years old and use he/him pronouns. Here’s a few things about me:

  • I work at an ice skating rink in the marketing department :D I'm wildly busy all the time, so snail mail is my relief at the end of a long day.

  • I have several pen pals that I keep up very regularly, and we exchange extras- but I love swaps for the sake of swaps! It's nice putting love into a one-off gift.

  • I have a lovely partner that, thankfully, listens to me infodump about mail and my pen pals. I adore my two lovely dogs, one big one named Onza, and a little one names Pavluška! They are the lights of my life!

Favorite Media

Books

I like books and writing with a lot of vivid imagery. I don’t read too much anymore, but I reread these constantly!

  • "I'll Give You the Sun" by Jandy Nelson

  • "Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets to the Universe" by Benjamin Alire Sáenz!

Podcasts

I listen to a ton!! I’ll gladly take recommendations, and I could talk about them for ages :)

  • My Brother, My Brother and Me
  • The Adventure Zone
  • Within the Wires
  • The Big Loop
  • Limetown

Movies

I don't watch as many movies or tv shows as I would like, because I never have the time, but anything with beautiful visuals is always awesome to watch! I'm very aesthetic-oriented.

  • Anything Ghibli! My favorite is "My Neighbor Totoro", it makes me so happy every time I watch it :D They're all indulgent movies, but I have so much Totoro stationery, and I'm always open to more!

  • "It's Such a Beautiful Day" is also really amazing, I think it's a really interesting way to use animation. I rewatch it every once in a while because it's so awesome!

Favorites/Aesthetics (Please send!):

  • I love all stationery!!! Memo pads, washi tapes, stickers, you name it! Some of my favorites are:*

  • The wide but thin paper tapes that are a little transparent (I like layering them!).

  • Botanical designs- especially things reminiscent of field guides and scientific illustrations. Kraft paper is also nice!

  • Lemons!! I like any watercolor-style fruit, really, but I adore lemons in any form, including dessert!

  • Really delicate designs and stickers - I love gentle aesthetics, and they're always so fun to combine with other things. I'll always take that over neons or harsh designs!

  • Grid designs!!! Any grid tapes and memo sheets, I love the design so much!

  • The moon and stars- I adore moon aesthetics, tarot, along with anything witch-related! I'm gathering my courage to start adding to that collection :D

  • My favorite color is pale blue, it’s always so calming :) I also really like yellow! It's so cheerful, I just painted my room yellow!

  • Decorated envelopes!! I have Informed Delivery, so every morning I get pictures of the mail I receive in the evening. Decorated mail keeps me excited all day to get my mail!! They make me so happy :)

  • Handmade items! I adore new stationery, but I love crafts and items that people put a lot of love into

  • Flipbooks!! I have so much fun building them, and it’s so sweet to receive them as well :D

  • Current collections! Right now I'm collecting fortunes from fortune cookies, as well as pages from play scripts!! These would make me super happy!!!

Art I Make

I love any sort of journaling and collaging! I've absolutely fallen in love with ATCs, I've started that including them in all my pen pal letters :D

For stand-alone art, I do a lot of watercolor and liquid ink paintings, but I also do a lot of digital art. It's a good mix, but mostly two dimensional. I recently got a goache set that I’m excited to mess around with!

I’ve also started bookbinding again! It was a long journey with reclaiming my mental health to pick this specific hobby back up, but I’m excited to get back into it :)

Small Stars

Dislikes :(

  • Reward and teacher items. I also have trouble fitting them into my collages.

  • Glittery items/loose glitter. Iridescent/shimmery things are fine, though!

  • Hello Kitty stickers and emoji stickers. That sounds like a weird request, but I have so many of both of these, it's ridiculous. I love hello kitty, but I have a limit, and apparently I've hit it!

  • Vintage Ephemera. I don't dislike it at all!! However, a previous swap partner was kind enough to gift a metric ton of it, so I have to work through that before asking for more, hah!

  • Anything licorice flavored. It makes me really nauseous.

  • Confetti, charms, bling. I really only ever use flat items when I journal, I don't have the time to craft very often... I just don't use these items, and rarely enter swaps where I can pass them along.

  • Transphobic, homophobic, racist, etc. content. For obvious reasons. I try to keep it light!

  • Religious themed items. I have PTSD, this is a trigger.

  • America themed items. American flags, service themed items, anything related to it. This is also a trigger for me.

A Final Note:

I Pledge to Rate

Because I'm always busy, I sometimes forget to rate when I receive my mail (because I open it away from my computer). I absolutely want to rate everyone, my memory is just terrible sometimes -_-'

If you sent me a swap and haven't been rated, feel free to reach out to me to ask me to rate!!

Comment: Thank you so much for all of the goodies! You have my taste down better than I do. I feel your pain with the postal carriers. They get aggravated that I want to use stamps. BTW, your envelope is amazing. I love this type of decorating, but have yet to step out of my comfort zone to try it.
Response: I'm so happy you liked it!! I had a lot of fun putting this one together. I hope we get to aggravate postal workers for each other soon <3 Step out of that comfort zone, it's super fun!!
