About Me

01/23/19: I'm looking for someone (or someones) to pen pal with! I'd love a more long term letter/card/etc.exchange.

Edit: I'm collecting wedding themed stickers and items for my scrapbook. We're having our ceremony next October!

I drop my letters in my mailbox and wait until the mail carrier picks it up to mark it as sent.

I love Disney, but especially The Little Mermaid (including the sequel, prequel, and animated series)! I love the Princesses, and most of the modern movies. I'm generally fond of animated movies/series!

My favorite holiday is Halloween (hands down). I love all kinds of witchy/pagan things. My second favorite holiday is Christmas. Since we've moved, I had to downsize my decorations. Unfortunately, I don't have any Halloween decorations anymore!

I'm a writer from the midwest. I have my Masters in Creative Writing, with several works published online and in magazines. The first issue is out. Find it on Amazon under The Novice Writer. I'll have a call for submissions for our next issue soon, so if you're interested, you can check back here or on The Novice Writer's Instagram.

I enjoy reading, making soap/bath products, scrapbooking, coloring, writing letters, cards, and watching youtube videos.

I really enjoy writing and receiving letters, as I assume most people on this site do! Nowadays most people prefer texting or email, but I love letters and cards too much! So I'm always sending friends and families cards and letters, and hardly ever getting anything in return. I thought I'd change that by joining a site of people just like me, who love snail mail! It's always wonderful to see a card in your mailbox.

Recently, my boyfriend (28) and I (27) have taken up the art of soap making. It's been a challenge! But we have lots of goodies to give our families this Christmas. I always feel like a home gift (especially a decently made one) is better than store bought.

Hmmm, what else can I say about myself? I have a dairy allergy, which sucks. No cheese, chocolate, or milk products for me. (I can have eggs. You'd be surprised how many people think I can't!) One day, I'll jump off the deep end and stuff myself full of donuts, Hersey's chocolate, sour cream and onion chips, Taco Bell, and ice cream. It'll be totally worth it.

I use crafting to help with depression, stress, and anxiety. Crafts give me something else to focus on and help me calm down.

Comment: Hi Chelsea...you did a fabulous job on everything!!! I thought your watercolor was great.. I think it is supposed to be a little imperfect, all handmade stuff is right? The journal page was gorgeous, love all of the extras on it plus the added touches of adding the Halloween sleeve to put everything in. LOVE all of it. Thanks a ton. I would give 5 hearts if I could. I would love to hear about your magazine, what a great idea!
Response: You're welcome! Halloween is my favorite time of year, and I love sharing October goodies! And my magazine is a collection of artworks, prose writing, and poems created by 25 different people! I'll be announcing the second issue pretty soon. :)
