About Me

I'm a graphic designer currently doing marketing/branding/advertising in mobile game development. I used to practice my handwriting every summer as a kid and my dad was a traditional sign painter, so my love for hand lettering runs deep (though I'm still very much a novice) which leads me to this site! I got back into journaling earlier this year and all the trappings involved in it and I miss the days when I used to get letters from my cousins in other countries as a kid, so this seems like a cool way to recapture some of that joy. Feel free to check out my Instagram linked above to get an idea of what I'm into!

Favorite Crafts

I write daily in my journal and love to decorate the pages with washi tape, stickers, and ephemera. My style goes anywhere from kawaii to vintage.

Besides that I like to mess around with hand lettering, writing letters, mail art, paper crafts, and collaging.

I tend to like found object ephemera rather than the printed stuff that you can buy in stores. I'll be much more interested in stuff like candy wrappers of your favorite stuff if you're from outside of the US than a die cut with "Live Laugh Love" on it or a similar sentiment. :)

Favorite Music

I grew up listening to hip hop and soul/R&B so those will always be forever loves, but as I've gotten older I've gotten into other genres like house, rock, alternative, classical, and jazz.

I try to go to live shows regularly since I live near a major US city where artists always come to tour, it's one of my favorite things to do! It's a bit terrifying how well Spotify's algorithm works, but I discover a lot of new music I dig on there as well.

Favorite Television

Breaking Bad

Westworld

The Handmaid's Tale

The Great British Bake-Off

Desus & Mero

Watchmen

Favorite Books

The Red Tent by Anita Diamant

Lamb by Christopher Moore

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Comfort Woman by Nora Okja Keller

Her Wild American Self by M. Evelina Galang

Likes

Gudetama, Sanrio, Sailor Mercury, video games, Orangetheory, dining out, Star Wars (Rose Tico is my jam), photography (used to shoot weddings as a side gig), reading anything and everything, boring anyone within earshot about the importance of good kerning in typography, love cute weird stuff, and sometimes just weird stuff, vintage paper and ephemera, and anything that comes off as super "designy": excellent typography, graphic shapes, clean lines, that kind of stuff. But, my style is really all over the map.

Dislikes

I consider myself pretty easy to please, but generally can't get into the following:

• herbal tea (but love black and green teas)

• pre-printed quotes/sentiments ("Live Laugh Love" type stuff)

• journal cards (no use for them)

• anything with glitter (microplastics... boooo!)

• fabric/ribbon/lace

Comment: I love this stationery you used. I am totally recycling it for my journal! The backside is so pretty! Did you use stamps to number the pages? I love that ink color! Thank you for the stickers too! <3 <3 <3
Response: I've been wanting to use that letter set for ages, but it's hard to find the right time as my usual pen pal letters are really long. Glad you enjoyed it! Yes, the numbers were stamped. :)

Comment: This might be my favorite swap ever. Truly! Your envelope and all the contents are just so amazing! I absolutely am inspired to make my envelopes this way, with beautiful and vintage decorations, in brown kraft envelopes, and pretty hand lettering. I love the tickets - I have a few like these but have always wanted more, so thank you!!! (I have now followed you on IG and I can't wait to learn and be inspired. And look at pretty things.)
Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed everything! Once I saw on your profile that you were interested in vintage tickets I knew I could help you out. :D Thank you for the wonderful review and the follow!

Comment: To begin with the envie was a bit torn😢 (I'm guessing from the travelling) but luckily the contents were intact. 😅 I absolutely loved everything you included in the blind envie for me,they were fantastic.💕 Everything was packed neatly, your love & care came through and filled my heart. Your mail made my day and I can't thank you enough for everything.😘😍 I especially adore the fiber bits and papers(as they are completely different and not something I've seen in my country) 🤗

Comment: You would get 10 gold stars from me. I LOVE my ephemera. It's been a long time since I received stuff as nice as I send. This was perfect for me. The Queen Eliz. telegram put it over the top -- my hubby and I did the crossing to Europe on the QE2 and just were so thrilled to see that. Also, the French card with the old art on the front -- ahhh, my fav city -- Paris. I went to school there and we love that city! Thanks for making my MONTH! Cheers!
Response: Such high praise! I love putting ephemera swaps together, but I know that my tastes don't necessarily align with the majority. I'm so glad you enjoyed everything so much!

Comment: I like these types of swaps, because I often receive things that I like. Such as fragile stickers, bus tickets, the time card and library card and the sunny chips bag. I actually like it all. Thank you!
