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!

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.
Hateful, homophobic, racist themes, though I've never received anything like that in this great community! ^_^
