I'm currently getting ready to move out of state, so I'm slowing down in joining swaps. I'll also be changing my address to a family members' to ensure that no letters are lost, so ratings may come a little bit slower. I am actively receiving mail to two addresses at this time, so if there are any discrepancies that's why! If you experience any issues please let me know and we can work something out.
I'm Makenzie, a 21-year-old girl from sunshiney California. I love mail swapping because I like to receive things that I can put in my journals, from notes to ephemera to art. My journals are a place I put beautiful things so that I can flip through them and feel my heart fill. I'm also an artist; I decorate the walls around my desk with pretty things and I use collected items in my mixed-media art.
I've been drawing for many years now. Typically my pieces are mixed-media; I use mostly markers and colored pencils but occasionally work with gouache and paint parkers. I would love to talk with more people who draw, since I don't have many other creators in my life who aim to continually practice their art. My Instagram where I post my pieces is @poppyanddaisyco or message me for my penpal information if you'd ever like to chat!
I'm currently studying Botany, with plans to become a Horticulturist and Botanical Illustrator. My dream is to start a small farm in the countryside, with fruits and vegetables and sheep and goats.
I have two cats, Daisy and Poppy. Daisy is a gray and white cat who loves to snuggle. Poppy is a brown tabby who loves to play. I also have a hedgehog, named Basil, who loves to sleep.
My mom gifted me her stamp collection, and I mostly collect nature-themed stamps and any stamps from Ireland. My collection is mostly made up of flowers, plants, mushrooms, birds of prey, songbirds, landscapes, European architecture, women with botanicals, fruits, vegetables, and farmland/farm animals. But really, I'm happy to receive any stamps, because if I don't add them to my books I can trade them!
I don't give hearts out based on extras. I give them based on the quality of the mail I'm sent and how likely I am to use it in my journaling. I take care to send out packages tailored to the recipient and I give hearts when I can tell that my partners have done the same!
