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 doze off. I also have a bratty black cat named Jafar who can turn you to stone with his glare o.o

I have 1000+ 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!
