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 love reading! I typically finish 60-100 books a year. I love to curl up with my fluffy Maine Coon cat named Chowder and read until we both get to cozy and sleepy to stay awake. I also have a bratty black cat named Jafar who can turn you to stone with his glare o.o

I have over a thousand rolls of rare and weird washi tapes & I love to share! If you have a special interest I can find a washi in my collection for it. I'm open to private swaps, just message me!

I'm getting really into typewriters lately, I have a Royal Touch Control model from the 1930's and I love writing letters on it, it's so satisfying!

Send me these!

Goodies: Art prints, postcards (I love illustrated postcards, don't like photo cards), letter sets, writing paper, patterned paper, postal stamps, ephemera, string and twine (I love Avril yarn!), stamped images, handmade envelopes, enamel pins.

Themes/ Aesthetic: All shades of green, watercolors, abstract patterns, nature/botanical, painted landscapes, field guide illustrations, bizarre/surreal, cityscapes, graffiti, video games, grungy edgy fashion, rainy days, daily life/monotony, cozy scenes, academia, outer space (especially Saturn), creepy, Halloween, skeletons, sweary or crass, butts/nudes, 420.

Animals: Cats, insects (scarabs and beetles), raccoons, skunks, pandas, llamas/alpacas, birds (crows, ravens, owls, seagulls, parrots).

Rare animals like Tapirs! Okapis! Axolotls! Capybaras! Sloths! Walruses! Quokkas! Lemurs! Pufferfish! Blobfish!

Characters/ Fandoms: Gudetama, BT21 especially TATA, Studio Ghibli, One Punch Man, Mob Psycho, My Hero Academia.

Tea: Jasmine Green and Earl Gray are my faves.

Not a fan of bows, cutesy butterflies, hearts, princess, fairy, mermaid, unicorn, Disney, pink or cutesy-pretty stuff. Kawaii is okay, but I prefer kawaii animals to kawaii girls.
