If I were a fairy, I'd be a forest fairy who tends a garden filled with beautiful plants. It'd be an oasis of peace and happiness for humans, fairy creatures and all of the animals.
However, I am not a fairy and I don't live in a forest. Instead I am an INFJ with empahsis on the "introvert" who devours anything clean fantasy, especially if it has fairytale vibes, drinks tea like it's the official drink of this realm (and it should be!), draws a little whimsy whenever she can, and grows a garden because that at least really does bring peace and happiness...and some tasty food sometimes too.
I am in my 30s, married for double digets to my longtime best friend. We have two fairy children with red hair and spicy personalities and so much beauty and creativity that we can hardly believe we got so lucky. I'm a born and raised PNW country girl living in Southern small town suburbia. I love the south, but I miss the country.
Mail has been one of the happy things of my past and present and these swaps give me a chance to hopefully send a little sunshine your way!
I read as much as I can around adulting. CLEAN fiction, particularly fantasy fairytales and historical fiction are my weaknesses.
You can find me on Goodreads and see what I'm reading and what I think of it:
I drink a lot of tea. I love trying new things and teas from different parts of the world. I love green tea with fruit, black teas and anything interesting.
I report on my daily cups of tea on TikTok (hopefully other places soon) and you can find me there: https://www.tiktok.com @teacupdaily
I spent most of my life secretly creating art, but never confident enough to share it. I'm not going to win any awards for my art, but I like to think it shows a little of my love for nature and whimsical things and art is not about being good, it's just about creating.
Art I enjoy: + Dabbling in Watercolor. I love how soft and flexible it is. + Papers. I play with a junk/art journal and love to use little tidbits of paper, washi, stickers and repurposed items to make pretty things. + Stickers. I loved them as a child and I never grew out of it.
I love woodland, fairy (but not victorian fairy), garden, nature vibes in everything. Books, fairytales, tea, coffee, greens and purples and anything about the ocean make me happy.
I live in zone 7b. I love growing herbs, especially interesting types of basils, and every year I try new peppers and tomatoes. Zinna are one of my favorites because they are so easy and the birds and butterflies love them.
