About Me

๐Ÿ‘‹๐ŸฝHello!

My name is Micaela and I live in Seattle, Washington, USA. ๐Ÿ’Œ

I recently moved to Seattle in January 2020 from San Francisco with my fiancรฉ. I work as a graphic designer in the tech industry, and he works as a recruiter also in tech. Iโ€™m 27, was born in the Napa Valley (St. Helena) and went to college there as well. My parents still live there and I love going back home and visiting them and their mini dachshund, Cashew.

I also have a small online shop where I sell stamps and stationery. Go to viamicaela.com to check it out! โค๏ธ

.

Loves

๐Ÿ“ฎThese are just a few of the things I love:

  • Dachshunds! (my family has a small English Cream long hair dachshund named Cashew, so I love anything dachshund-related)

  • Collecting and using vintage postage stamps (I especially love animal stamps, architecture & art stamps, mail-related stamps, and floral/nature themed stamps)

  • Cards and stationery (love anything letterpress, gold foil, pretty illustration, floral/nature, coffee, or snail-mail related!)

  • Stickers (love animal, floral, nature, kawaii ones, coffee, travel, books and snail-mail related ones! Also love mrs grossman's, stickii and pipsticks too)

  • Traveling (favorite places are Florence, Paris, Big Sur, Carmel-by-the-sea, and Tulum in Mexico)

  • Reading and baking (love cupcakes and chocolate chip cookies)

  • Calligraphy (I'm a novice)

  • Favorite foods are Mexican being that I'm half Mexican, and I love Italian food, and any yummy vegan soups (recipes welcome!)

  • Typewriters (I own an Olympia DeLuxe Cursive one)

๐Ÿ“ฎPostcards I like to receive:

  • Animals: My favorite animals are dogs/dachshunds, horses, elephants, tigers, turtles, humpback whales, and hedgehogs.

  • Nature: I am a big fan of cacti and succulents, and always welcome more flora and fauna in my mailbox. I also love fruit, tulips, and redwood trees.

  • Abstract: I love abstract and modern art so if you have a postcard lying around, I'd love it! I used to visit the SFMOMA often, and love Ellsworth Kelly. I also love impressionist art like Monet, Degas, Cรฉzanne, Matisse.

  • Landscapes: I like tourist postcards that aren't the usual tourist postcards. But I also love natural landscapes and cityscapes and landmarks. Tell me about your town/city!

Please: If you don't receive something from me, private message me.

It is likely that it is lost in the mail or just delayed, as I usually send out swaps during the first two days after partners are assigned. I will appreciate a private message asking to resend immensely, and will extend the courtesy to all of you out there as well ๐Ÿ˜ŠThank you! I take pride in my swaps and getting them to their homes as quickly as possible.

Comment: Hi Micaela ! Thank you for the house PC. It's actually very nice in my eyes. Although, I wouldn't want that huge house. Would be so hard to heat. We have a double wide mobile home we own, with 3 bedrooms & that's good enough for us.
