About Me

Hello ! My name is Dani Mason! I am from the city of New Haven , CT . I love junk journaling , snail mail ,postcrossing and art 🐻I am so excited to be on the website and swap ! I enjoy learning about people from all walks of life and I feel that learning through mail is the best way too do it! It is a way to connect with people through something tangible besides the screen which I love . If you want to see more of my snail mail art \ my cat rescuing you can follow me on IG @ xthemasonsx P.s. my email I am using is my husband.when is signed up I wasnt getting my activation email so I used his instead. Lol! πŸ˜› Also Please note if my swap has not arrived please message me first. I NEVER not send. I will resend if I have to. But please message me first. I am very friendly and NOT a flake so please don't message the coordinator if you don't try to contact me first.tysm! Swapping means a lot to me and I want people to understand that.❀ I also would like to say that I work very hard in my swaps and tend to try to go above an beyond. I send what inwould like to receive, a well thought out package. So please don't forget to rate me....❀update on Nov 10th 2019: I am getting dishearted at the amount of non-raters on here. I have packages I know got to people and they haven't rated 😿 So PLEASE rate me. I hate having to message people multiple times.😿 Update Nov 28th 2019:this is getting frustrating. I have messaged people numerous times.&still nothing. I put a lot of love an care into each of swaps. Even the simple ones take min. 1.5hrs to put together most are on average 4hrs.....I put a lot of time into my stuff and love. I double an triple check profile preferences. So please rate me. I really aim to make you smile and happy. So knowing my package got there and made you smile means so much.

Favorite Crafts

junk journaling. I just recent found out the junk journaling is an actual thing. When I was younger I used to always mish-mash my journals. I always added to it with stickers or things from my day. I started doing it again but more how would you say more junky? Lol finding the IG junk journal community inspires me so much! 🌟 *sketching \drawing . I have started to draw again and I really am enjoying . I would love to swap cutesy drawings with someone!😸 *painting . I have started to work on painting and upcycling wood and different things I fins. I love putting a new spin on what was once trash πŸ’° *mail art (been loving really working on my penpal letters ) I love making my happy mail letters beautiful. I think it is a waste of a letter to just slap and address on it. I love how having a different "canvas" makes it more of a challenge. πŸ“ *collage πŸ’– I have always loved collage. When was was a kid I collages a whole wall of my bedroom with pictures from magazines. My parents weren't too thrilled though lol! I started to pick it back up again recently.πŸ’ž VERY interested in ATC swaps. I love the idea of making art in smaller form. I can't wait to make some for others .edit: I have done a few private via Instagram and one private swap on here.love ATCs edit: I have now down a few swaps on here for ATCs I love them so much.If you ever want to do a private illustration based ATC swap or send me one I would be so happy to do that/get that. ❀I also recently started trading postcards! Not picky though I love all kinds .any theme you see me mention on here I love. πŸ’ž I also love to color! Recently have been using my pages as backgrounds , in mail art and for junk journal pages ! I love to use them in a variety of crafts. 🌟

Favorite Movies

My favorite movie of all time is The Nightmare before Christmas. I have always loved it since I was a little girl. I love the art of it. I have always love creepy stuff and creepy but cute stuff! I know every word to every song πŸ’– I don't have any other favorites but recently I have seen these movies and truly enjoyed them! As you can tell I love horror \ thrillers *Alien trilogy *Terminator Trilogy and the 2 new movies *Olympus has fallen *Pulp Fiction *Hannibal *Redemption *jumping the broom *The madea movies *my mother's eyes πŸŽ₯ And too many more to list!

Favorite Music

My favorite bands of all time are Blue October and Panic! At the Disco. I have been listening to them for 13-14yrs and over that time have helped me numerous times. I truly feel like their music has saved my life many times. I love music that makes you realize you are not alone and if then could get through it so could you πŸ’– I highly recommend them!

Things I collect

*postcards. I love all kinds even ad and homemade. I am not picky πŸ’– if swapping multiple postcards please put them blank in an envelope and write your not separately. Single postcards send naked and if you could answer one of the following questions your choice. 1.what is the weather like where you live and do you like it? 2. Recommend a good movie\TV show or book 3.describe your pet or pets to me 4. What is your favorite place in your hometown? 5. Send a recipe from your country\state πŸ’– *art work *interesting "junk" *keychains *vintage emphemera *vintage books *fabric scraps (use them in my projects!) *stickers 🌟🌟🌟🌟 *cute stationary *junk journal supplies *buttons (pins and sew on)

Why I love swapping

Every since joining the world of penpal\postcrossing\ swap I feel that my days are so much better. This community inspires me to craft more and there is so many wonderful people to pull inspo from. I work very hard on making sure my letters a beautiful inside and out sonplease do the same if swapping .😘 I love how I get exchange culture with others from all over the USA & world . there is nothing like the feeling of getting a swap \happy mail that someone put time in just for you πŸ’ž I also love knowing when someone loves what I get \ make for them. I spend hours literally on each letter \ package I send because I truly feel that the love I put in shows in how comes out. ( not to toot my own horn) If I interested in what I have sent others you can check out my Instagram @xthemasonsx . I can not wait to swap with you and please rate a 5 I try very hard to curate something you will love and use 🌟If something is wrong please message me so we can resolve it. sending good vibes your way!-DaniπŸ˜»πŸ»πŸŽ€πŸ‘ΈπŸŒŸπŸΆ

A few of my favorite things.

*I love animals. I am a crazy cat lazy for sure and I love dogs just as much. I rescue,foster ,TNR and feed community cats in my neighborhood 😻 I currently have one adorable foster named Clarice after the character in the Hannibal Lecter movies. *I am a huge fan of outdoors. I love nature. It is where I always feel at peace. I actually press flowers alot . I love using botanical and nature themes in my crafts. *I love candy! I have a huge sweet tooth and love anything with a sour or fruity flavor. I am not a fan of chocolate unless it is with caramel or peanut butter. If anyone can get ahold of the old recipe butterfingers you would be my hero! I hate the new recipe it ruined a candy I love. *tea is something I would always be happy to get . πŸ’– *washi tape is something I adore but always have trouble finding at the stores by me. Any would be much appreciated πŸ’– *spending time on my letters and swaps. I truly love doing this. It makes me so happy knowing someone is going to get something from key I have spent hours. It is like therapy for me! Lol I hope when you get your swap from me you love it. I put a lot of time into and I hope what I get from you is filled with the same love πŸ’– *I also skateboard alot! I live in a city and don't have a car. So I skateboard to get around a lot. I love my longboard πŸ’– *my favorite color is purple. So anything with purple is awesome.

😀DislikesπŸ˜₯ Please don't send me anything to do with: I am very religious so anti-Jesus/ God jokes , cards anything is not cool at all. I have been a vegetarian for 11yrs so nothing to do with animal abuse. I don't think it is funny or o.k. so no hunting or fishing stuff either. I will take recipes with meat(for my husband),cutesy meat stuff. Ex: a doodle of a cute burger, a hotdog pin a bacon sticker. That is okay. I really only want political stuff that is pro-democratic/ anti-trump. I am respectful of your views I just don't want them in my mailbox I get very heated about that type of stuff. Lol!


These are items if I receive I will always give a heart! ❀❀❀❀❀ Please READ: my husband has been going through a rough time. So anything specifically labeled for him will always get a heart . that k you for those who sent birthday wishes. He likes cats, dogs, nature, r&b music, rap music,heavy metal(Metallica ,Led Zeppelin etc) ,journaling(I am making him ajunk journal actually),coffee/ sugar packets ,coloring(we have wayyyy to many coloring pages but pencils/markers are nice) and he LOVES anything sweet. Tysm for anyone who included something for him just label it "David"

I am in a real need of rubber/clear/quality foam/handcarbed stamps and ink stamps or even stamped images on paper is cool! blank postcards, mint US stamps, used stamps, anything Christmas, Halloween/fall , something you handmade , stationary, vintage anything, bird feathers/ pressed flowers , whole sticker sheets, interesting flavor tea . I would really love to get a Polaroid or a picture from where you live .especially from the new instant Polaroid camerasπŸ’– I would love anything kawaii πŸ’œ I have trouble finding stuff like that near me. So anything like that is welcome πŸ’œ I am in a real need right now of stationary, fall /Christmas crafting supplies ,blank notecards and blank postcards& stamps . If you have anything like this &want to do a private swap just pm me.

Mail related issues.

Hello I am posting this on Oct 25th 2019. Problem one : if you are mailing me something that is not a flat envelope/ lumpy/3D embellishments. Please write in clear letters front an back "non machinable " I had something come back recently slit and most of the stuff in the envelope was gone. There is a 20 cents surcharge for non machinable envelopes as well. Thanks for understanding πŸ’– Problem two: I just had someone tell me that they had to pay postage of 15cents for something I sent them. I didn't even know that could happen.I mail from my apartment mailbox. I have to because every single time I go to the post office they refuse to mail it because of the mail art. They also don't understand for INTL mail that is correspondence you do not need a customs form. So I send from my apartment because it SO much better. I normally am good a judging how much I need for postage and normally will put extra rather than have it not go through. BUT if this happens PLEASE lmk . I will make it right by sending you something of equal value of the postage/ the missing change/$ if you. are located in the US. Problem 3- if the date is different from when I clicked send it is because I already dropped it in the mailbox but , sometimes the mailman/lady will come at different times. (They come between 1130am-3pm) but if I clicked sent it is waiting in the box on its way out. Thanks for understanding.
