Who Am I?

My name is Abby and I'm a bored artist watching my twenties fade away working a desk job. Please spice up my life with some happy mail!

I'm an avid reader, anywhere from 60-100 books a year. I love to curl up with my fluffy Maine Coon cat named Chowder and read until we both pass out. I also have a bratty black cat named Jafar who can turn you to stone with his glare.

I love collecting washi tape. I have a ginormous collection of rare and weird washi tapes & would love to share and swap unique samples, hit me up for a private swap if that sounds good to you :)

Send me these!

Goodies- Art (prints or originals), stickers, washi samples, postal stamps (used or unused), ephemera of any kind, stamped images, handmade envelopes.

Themes/ Aesthetic- All shades of green, bright colors, watercolors, abstract patterns, nature/botanical, creepy, goth, halloween, skeletons, plague doctors, bizarre/surreal, sweary or crass, butts/nudes, 420, cityscapes, graffiti, grunge, landscapes, rain, daily life/monotony, outer space (especially Saturn- my swapbot namesake!)

Animals- Cats, alpacas, insects, raccoons, skunks, pandas, birds (crows, ravens, owls, seagulls, parrots) field guide illustrations.

Rare animals like Tapirs! Okapis! Axolotls! Capybaras! Sloths! Walruses! Quokkas! Lemurs! Pufferfish! I'm not picky when it comes to animals...

Comment: These washis are fantastic! I can immediately use two of the designs just beautiful and rare! I can't believe you have a dancing Santa Washi as well. Thank you very much
Response: You're so welcome! I really hoped you'd like the dancing Santa washi- it cracks me up every time I use it. Glad you can use the other ones as well, I'm happy to share ๐Ÿค—
Comment: Thank you for these fabulous tapes! They are so different than what I have and what I would be able to find in Canada! I adore them and canโ€™t wait to play.
Response: You're so welcome! Lol I didn't find most of those tapes in the US either, most I ordered from Taiwan or Japan--I love hunting for tapes made by independent artists, those tend to be my favorite designs ๐Ÿ˜

darkpeppermint rated for KPOP Happy Mail #1 on Jul 9, 2019
Comment: Thank you for the B1A4 themed flip book! I've never actually seen a flip book before so I was definitely stunned by this! I loved all the little surprises inside of it like the washi samples hidden in the top pocket and the stickers and playlist in the side one! I especially enjoyed your commentary/thoughts on the the songs you typed onto the playlist and I 100% agree with you that "Our Summer" by TXT is a perfect summer song and that Dean's vocals are super smooth. Also, the handmade stamping you did on the back of it looks really cute! This swap was really special. Thank you!
Response: Hehe I'm so happy you liked it! I just followed a tutorial on youtube for the flipbook using an envelope and it was fun, I've never done one shaped like that before. If you ever want to do a private swap for flipbooks or something, hit me up!
Comment: GREAT postcard! Thanks!
Response: No problem!
