About Me


I am a student in my early 20's, whose favourite colour is green. Hoping to spread the joy of receiving a letter in the mail!

Things I like :
  • Green Hellebores and Tuberoses
  • Old botanical illustrations
  • Expanding collection about colour and pigments
  • Reading about medival art and coulture
  • Interior design, more specifically; Hollywood regency and mid-century modern.
  • Knitting socks in various designs.
  • Journaling
  • Coffee
  • Green tea

    Some of the most memorable books I read last year:

    • Beautiful Losers by Leonard Cohen
    • Blue Horses by Mary Oliver
    • Empire of Senseless by Kathy Acker

I own two Traveler's notebooks in Vegan leather (aka plastic). One is for my artsy every day diary, a regular size journal. I try to keep the theme close to nature and art. I also have journals that I do not decorate.

Things I like in Journaling
  • fountain pens
  • floral stickers
  • art stickers (e.g. Van Gogh art stickers)
  • cute post-it's and post cards
  • I use a lot of botanical and astrological references to draw flowers and constellations.

My personal size journal is for the more boring stuff, like to do lists and school work, so I like to spice things up with small stickers and strips of washi.

Favorite Books

All time & 2020 Favourites:

  • Beautiful Losers by Leonard Cohen
  • The Lord Of the Rings -trilogy by Tolkien
  • The Distance of the Moon - short story by Italo Calvino (a short story)
  • Paradise Rot by Jenny Hval
  • Bunny by Mona Awad

Favorite Music

Sigur Rós, The Smiths, Desire Marea, Florece + the Machine, Ursus Factory and Amanda Palmer are some whose whole albums often play at the background in my house. Almost everything goes!

lil bit more of me

I am 22 going on 80, drinking way too much coffee and tea, reading, an playing video games, and doing art & crafts.


I've been painting more portraits and finding my style, doing physio, eating a lot of noodles and oats. This year I am really loving turtle necks!


I am hoping to switch fields of study in the next year or so from International Business to Art History to later continue to Art Business' Master's Degree, move to overseas, build my dream house, and grow tuberose.


Even though I love receiving tea, I am terribly

  • Pineapple
  • Wheat
  • Dairy
  • Eggs
  • Banana
  • Hazelnut
  • Paprika
  • Carrots
  • LATEX - means also if you have used a latex sponge in crafting.

Because of my allergies I don't want to receive any items of food. Some artificial sweeteners can also cause migraines on me, and no animal products.

Do NOT send
  • Butterflies
  • Snails
  • Children's stickers
  • Religious items or texts



  • Stamps (used post and for ink stamping)
  • Pretty papers
  • pre-cut diecuts
  • vintage book pages
  • stickers
  • project life cards
  • things for a Traveler's journal (I have regular and personal sizes)
  • wax seals
  • letter writing paper and sets
  • atlas'
  • green (dark emerald and pine shades) things; plants, flowers, trees, stones, paper, stickers, etc.
  • Short stories, book pages, etc.

Anything I can use to make cute flipbooks and happy mail :)

PS I just wanted to add that sadly I don’t do well with gore so I haven’t been watching Dragula! But I know some of the artists that have been on it. Just recently listened to a long podcast interview with Landon Cider, absolutely lovely person.
