About Me

Hi!

I am a piano teacher from Arizona who loves mail! I love fancy postage, anything watercolor, big beautiful florals, gorgeous scenery, and succulents. My favorite colors are pinks, blues, and purples. I like fresh colors the most - mint, light pink, light green, lots of pastels! Colors I don't usually go for are dull ones, browns, reds, and oranges. Don't be afraid to send me something in those colors though, if you think it's pretty I probably will too! I usually go for black and gray instead of brown and tan, but there are of course exceptions!! Kraft paper and vintage ephemera are a couple. :)

All kinds of birds are my favorite animals, but I especially like lovebirds, parrotlets, flamingoes, finches, and chickens. :)

Also, I love Jack Russells, elephants, baby animals, and rabbits.

I love being crafty and making beautiful things with watercolors and pretty writing. I love urban sketching. I took a bookbinding class in college and have been making my own journals ever since! I enjoy calligraphy and other typography as well.


---FOR THE LOVE OF TRAVELER'S NOTEBOOK SWAP--- I like anything watercolor or pastel or big messy florals. Anything that can be glued in is great! Vintage ephemera (actual vintage or just vintage styled), MAPS!!, cactus/succulents, travel themed washi, urban sketching, brick or wood, typewriter/typography/modern calligraphy, anything from Tim Holtz, Project Life, SMASH book stuff or any other scrapbooking supplies you think I might like based on any of the rest of my profile! I really do like most things so don't worry. :) And feel free to message me if you're feeling unsure!


Send me tried and true recipes you love! (I don't need blank recipe cards for myself, but if you write a recipe on them I would love to receive that!) Cooking is another favorite activity of mine. I'm not afraid of making recipes from scratch. Right now, it's just my husband and I, so if you have any recipes to share that are for two, I would love that! It's way too easy for me to go overboard and cook for an invisible army and then wind up with way too much leftovers that eventually get thrown away!! I do not cook with or drink alcohol, coffee, or tea. (Herbal tea is great though! If you send me some of your favorite kind, tell me what you like to mix into it. I'm an herbal tea newbie.) :)

Preferences:
I am sure to drool over anything watercolor, birds, succulents, washi, watercolor flowers, Mini Cooper, or pastel colors! I don't really have a use for unused postcards, but if you do decide to send me one, I would prefer it to be a fun pattern or design that I can send anytime to a friend, or a cool photo of scenery that is meaningful to you.. like an insight into where you live! And then tell me about it in a few words. :)

Other themes I like: Arrows, gemstones, geometric, mermaids, flowers, succulents, cactus, birds, watercolor, travel, fresh, fruity, bright, happy, calligraphy, stripes, feminine, lace, regency, sheet music, maps.

My redheaded toddler daughter goes crazy over horses ("hoasies"), zebras ("zebees"), and dogs ("goggies"), so if you feel like destashing anything with those animals on it, she would love it!

Also if you happen to have any type of illustration or anything with a redhead girl on it, I would love that!!

**Not my favorite: Kawaii cartoons, emojis, cheesy cutesy, gothic, or skulls.

**I don't drink regular tea, but am starting to enjoy herbal tea. I LOVE hot chocolate and enjoy other caffeine free drink mixes, like propel, lemonade or koolaid.

Thanks for reading! I am not picky about what I receive and will try my best to make really good happy mail to send!

Response: Thank you! I can hardly take credit for the sunflower.. I was so surprised it grew so well! The rest of the ones I planted were mediocre at best. Nature truly is amazing. You are so sweet!! 💜
