Updates

3/31/20: There was a rash of mail thefts in my area, so if you have not received your swap, please message me!! I will do my best to correct it/resend immediately. Happy swapping!

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.

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!

Please read my dislikes at the bottom of my profile. They include triggers.

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!

Queer literature in general has my heart, and I love a good romance, or any story with magic. YA novels never lost their glamour for me!

I also love poetry anthologies! Anything with vivid imagery is wonderful, and I also like Shakespeare :) My favorite poems are “The Eighth of September by Pablo Neruda, and “A Primer for the Small Weird Loves” by Richard Siken (tw for violence!).

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!

Small Stars

Favorites/Aesthetics (Please send!):

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

  • Washi! I like layering washi in my collages/spreads, so I don’t like the waxy/thick ones too much- but I love any with pretty designs!

  • 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! Hand bound books, mini collages, folders, tags, stickers, everything!

  • 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!! I LOVE them, they’re so lovely in collages. These would make me super happy!!!

Small Stars

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!

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!

  • 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!!

Thank you so much for angeling the space themed happy mail. It's wonderful! I really love the envelope, washi, and stickers. And I'm so sorry about your dog. I had a cat when I was a kid and she was everything to me. When she passed I was absolutely devastated. It's really the worst feeling. But I did give each of my kitties kisses for you. :)
