About Me

If you like lame calligraphy and bad photography WELCOME you are on the right profile hahaha! this is me!

ABOUT YOU: I WILL RATE YOU ALWAYS, IF I DON'T RATE YOU THAT MEANS I DID NOT GET YOUR POSTCARD, CARD, ENVELOPE. I ADORE PEOPLE SO MY RATINGS ARE 100% LOVELY, I follow the old adage if you don't have anything positive to say, you better don't say anything. I'm all about positivism and love and wanting to be friends.

I’m a full time graphic designer I’m a transplant from Mexico, then England then here California (I still have the mexican accent tho’ lol) I have traveled a bit, mainly Europe and South America, my husband is from Sweden and my daughter has 3 citizenships (random comment lol). I design advertisements for cars for the main brands out there, the style is very corporate, however when I freelance I do a lot of handcrafted design (think like I create my own fonts) I also design cakes for weddings birthdays etc… as often as time allows me I squeeze a customer or two, because I have to rent my own kitchen etc…so it’s kind of hectic. I love to practice calligraphy on the side, rubber stamp carving and hand lettering, I enjoy craft blogs, I’m very laid back when it comes to relationships and friendships I don’t expect too much but rather accept people for who they are and love them as they are, I think life is too short and should be lived in the here and now with respect acknowledging that time is the material life is made of.

Favorite Music

I enjoy opera and classical music, but I also enjoy modern music like pop rock like the Kinks, Belle and Sebastian, or classic Rock like U2, Leonard Cohen The Ramones, that sort of thing, I'm very mellow I would "endure" any music as long as it's not being played super loud bahahahaha!

Favorite Books

I am avid reader probably about 3 to 4 every month and more during holidays, I read on my ipad, I listen to audiobooks I absolutely enjoy narratives (such as My name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout, The Sense of an ending by Julian Barnes) but mostly intriguing books like Girl Gone by Gillian Flynn, when I was young I read a lot of the classic literature, so now that I am older I enjoy contemporary literature, love James Cain (MIldred Pierce) and loved loved The Analyst by John Katzenbach, but very much enjoy books about philosophy about life like "You're a badass" by Jen Sincer or the War of Art by Steven Pressfield, this book it's truly amazing for the creative types it talks about how to motivate you when you are a freelance artist so to speak, he says the important thing is to take action and do something every day and a more serious one based in Seneca's teaching is "The Obstacle is the Way" by Ryan Holiday such a good book! My 2 favorite authors are Ishiguro and Murakami they are amazing!!! Ok I have to stop otherwise I will run out of characters Or I would become a writer myself bahahaha!

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy rubber stamping and rubber stamp carving, paper origami and collage I love to make small packages and receive them :) I practice calligraphy and handlettering and I also very much enjoy exchanging vintage stamps and using them for my mailers, I am not an avid collector of them since I use them mainly for my mailers but love to have a stash for my envelopes I love ephemera, flower packet seeds, airmail, California ephemera, birds and butterflies ephemera, small parcels, wax seals, antique vintage things, tombow handlettering, dennison labels.

Comment: Firstly, that was the most BEAUTIFULLY penned envelope I think I've ever received (and I've been palling since I was 13!). Secondly, you are just a wonderful person- I loved the humor and personality that bounced right off the pages. Are you looking for another pal? I'd love to reply and see if we have any commonalities- other than a clear appreciation for neat penning and paper! I'll see you in the post soon. ♥Debbie
Response: Ohhh eemm geee! Yes reply to my letter, just like "introductory" telling me what you like in general, yes! let's be penpals, thank you for taking the time to rate me, such amazing comments!!!

Oh my word! My heart is full of thanks! I cant believe that you sent me these lovely note papers I wanted so badly. I didn't reply with my address because I felt terrible asking you to send me any since you had so few left. I should have replied still I suppose. And yet you took the time to send them to me! You are a sweetheart! Thank you so much!!! They will be collaged into some lovely art! <3 Rebecca
