About Me

Quick comment: I received a beautiful package from someone named Suzanne :) It was purchased through Amazon and it's extremely thoughtful and I absolutely love it!! Unfortunately there is no swap name or user ID on it, so I have no idea who it's from. If this was you, please contact me on here (by sending me a description of the items that were sent) so that I can thank you properly and send something in return!! 💖

Hey there!

My name is Lizzy :) I'm currently a 21 year old college student who's studying criminal psychology, with a minor in anthropology. I was born and raised in sunny Southern California (and live there til this day). I love learning new languages, it's an absolute beautiful thing. At the moment, I'm only fluent in English and Spanish, but I hope to improve my German as well. To me, every new language learned opens up a portal- one where you're able to communicate with new groups of people. It expands your knowledge & possibilities, plus it's so fascinating! :) I don't have any pets at the moment, but I had a zoo growing up (okay not literally, but I had all sorts of pets from dogs and cats, to turtles and bunnies). When I'm not working on my studies, you can easily find me reading a book at a quiet coffee shop (or at home curled up with a cup of coffee & replying to my penpal letters), binge watching a new favorite TV show, spending some quality time with my family, or wandering around the sleepless city of L.A.

As far as interests go, well I'm practically all over the place haha for starters- I love to read :) I'll read anything from YA to a good horror book. I also like hiking, camping, and going on road trips; basically anything involving the wondrous outdoors. Sightseeing, crafting (snail mail in particular), baking, and photography are also high up on my list :) And my absolute favorite colors are rose gold and pastels :)

As far as music goes, I seriously can't live without it :) My taste in it is quite broad too, but some of my all time favorite genres have to be; rock, alternative, electro, pop, indie, and even classical and instrumental for times when I feel like relaxing or studying.

My biggest dream is to travel the world. I believe that travelling is not just for pleasure, but also serves as a learning experience in many ways. Any fellow wanderlusters out there? :)

â–ªTop things on my bucket list:â–ª

  1. Travel the world

  2. Study abroad in Europe

  3. Become fluent in at least 5 different languages

  4. Face a fear of mine

  5. Go on a good old fashioned roadtrip across the U.S.

Current Favorite Quotes

"The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

"We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us."

Anonymous

"To me, a rich and satisfying life means one full of contrast. Give me sleep ins. And soft rains. Coffee shops and conversation. But also adrenaline and adventure. And drunken bellows to the stars. I am determined to embrace this extravagant life for all that it has to offer."

Beau Taplin// A Disparate Life

Favorite Crafts

I first began my crafting journey about a year ago through snail mail. I love it, it's been one of the best experiences that I've come across in my life. Snail mailing with my penpals has inspired me creatively, as well as in many other areas. Some of my favorite things to create are flipbooks (still quite new at this), small pencil pouches, bookmarks, tags, handmade cards, envelopes, drawings & soft pastel artwork, envelope/mail art, and of course snail mail (my favorite).

Although I haven't been crafting for as long as a majority of the talented people on here, I do put a lot of thought, effort, and love into the things that I create and send. I hope to get inspired along this journey, with every swap that's exchanged and through each of my swap buddies :)

Hugs!

Regarding Swaps

I joined this website to have fun and make people smile upon receiving one of my absolute favorite things in the world- happy mail. With that said, I will never flake on a swap. I click "send" the very same day that I mail swaps off. However, I know that sometimes mail can get lost or delayed, so please message me first before rating. If you have any concerns whatsoever, please contact me firstly so that I can figure out if there's an issue. Ultimately, if a swap never makes it to its destination (which would be tragic- but has happened to me with a few penpal letters), I am more than willing to send a new one! :)

Happy swapping, everyone!
