About Me

Hi all! My name is Zaira, I'm 25 and moved to Washington state to live off grid in a canvas wall tent in the woods, with my partner B and our two cats! I greatly value the elements and connection between nature/spirit. I've been a practicing green / hedge witch for nearly 10 years and enjoy deep research and discussion about it. My passions are gardening, homesteading, ecstatic dance and mixed media art. I have made bullet journals and junk journals for several years and got into snail mail swaps to extend my art and make it for specific people besides myself! I tend to prefer a messy, junk journal type page full of layered handmade features. If you only like premade cards or incredibly neat work, we may not be good partners. However if you enjoy what I sent you, I'd love to be regular penpals, just let me know and I will add you to my recurring list! I am in this for the art prompts and creative growth as well as to make awesome connections with people! I'd also love to do private swaps especially with magickal themes or for our significant others/kids.

We are a foster family and often have boys ages 3-15 in our home. Typically they come with little to no personal belongings so we are always looking for toys, books, craft supplies, and activities for them. We are strong believers in lots of screen free time! If you are interested in donating or learning more, feel free to message me or check out the foster care wishlist above for items they need!

I've traded with the following countries so far and would LOVE to add more to the list! USA, Canada, Indonesia, Spain, Croatia, Portugal, UK, Brazil, Netherlands, Sweden, Italy, Australia, Belarus, France, Germany, Greece, Finland, South Africa, Russia, Thailand, Poland

If you ever do not receive something from me please let me know! I always mark "sent" the day I drop it off! I also take photos of my envelopes and contents. USPS wait times are getting longer and longer so let's be kind and patient for the love of the art!

What I Like

What I like-

*Homestead/ farm themes, chickens, cows, pigs

*Country home and kitchen, canning, jars, prepping

*Camping, outdoors, tent, yurt inspired

*Garden, floral, insect, herbs, fruit and veggie themes (strawberry, lemon, cherry, root veggies, broccoli, heirloom tomatoes, bees, ladybugs, worms, snails)

*Vintage seed catalogues or garden book pages

*Fairies, mushrooms, gnomes, dryad, woodland

*Witchy, spiritual, oracle, tarot inspired

*Fav animals - bears, bunnies, octopus, snails, worms

*Creepy or vintage Halloween

*Old school horror, Hitchcock, Universal Monsters, Weekly World News, Creepshow, Elvira

*Cyptids, conspiracy, mysteries or true crime

*Adult only snarky, sexy, sassy, scary, stoner, trippy

*Aliens, UFOs, stars, space, sun & moon

*Themes of meditation, mindfulness, Ram Dass, Be Here Now

*Geometric patterns such as Moroccan tiles, grids or mandalas

*Cultural tokens, language, songs, recipes etc from non US country

*Characters from Pooh, Snoopy, Curious George or 90s childhood classics

*Stickers - especially metallic, holographic, foiled, washi or clear background

*Bigger brands like Graphic 45, Echo Park, Amy Tangerine, or any small creator!

*Hot cocoa, (especially dark, peppermint or raspberry), chai, coffee, green tea, fruity tea, medicinal tea

*Chocolate, sour candy, gummies or sweets!

*Handmade everything! Show me your art, your style, your passion

*I do collect ATCs and enjoy being gifted printables

Fav colors-


Earthy (greens, browns, terracotta)

Bright (yellow, orange, teal, purple)

Postcards- Love non-touristy! If it is touristy I like a beautiful nature view or funky tourist trap (big road tripper here!) Would enjoy international postcards, photography, art, graffiti, nature, funny, abstract, metallic, quotes, jokes, shaped, holographic or sticker slapped. Loupaper "doodle" style pcs or other small artist prints will make me happy dance!

Holiday Aesthetic notes- I mostly celebrate the Wheel of the Year of Pagan holidays and don't enjoy Christian based holiday materials. For Easter I prefer Spring garden type themes. For Christmas time I prefer winter, woodland, cozy, baking type aesthetics. For HALLOWEEN I love golden Autumn energy, spooky nostalgic house party, and/or creepy horror aesthetics. Sheet ghosts, witches with cauldrons, apothecary bottles, shadow figures, creatures with many eyes, and pumpkin heads are some of my favs.

Not My Favs

x anime/kawaii/k pop

x alcohol/wine/beer

x Santa

x dogs/horses

x dragons/princesses

x mermaids

x animal prints

x bows/ruffles

x sports teams

x coloring pages / cards

x number two or mechanical pencils

x recipe cards or bookmarks

x spell jars / bottle magic

x chaos, voodoo or black magick

x any God or deity related religion

DuhBe rated for FAD: Ocean Inspired Art Doll on Nov 29, 2021
Comment: Thank you for the art doll. The addition of the crystals and tentacles was a nice touch. The tentacles came unglued but I've figured out how to reattach them and like how you designed them. (I'm rating a 3 because the doll was received several months after the swap, otherwise I would rate a 5)
Response: 11/26 Resent today! 11/29 I am so happy you got it and liked how I adorned her. Sorry again for the delay. Thanks for letting me make it up!
