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 (over 1000 tapes!) 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! Open to private swaps- 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 very satisfying.
