About Me

UPDATE : I'm back! Finally after a year of hiatus, now I have spare time to get crafty again. I really miss receiving happy mail! ❤️

Hi everyone! My name is Melli & live in Indonesia. I am 21 college student. I really loveee to do craft, art, cut, fold, cute & vintage things, diy. I love decorating envelopes with vintage style. I already have some penpals, check out my instagram @melli_penpal . I usually make mailart / simple flipbook for my penpals. I love to express my creativity on it.

My envelope decoration

I love playing with paper since I was child. I've filled up a room with paper, cut it and make paper doll & play with it. I love to make Pop Up Card. I have my own online shop for it. But since I entered college, I can't handle this shop anymore. But, I really want to express my hobby. Fortunately, I found snail mail community. Quickly in love with my new hobby. Now I love to collect pretty pic to cut to make a pretty mails. No need to think twice when I find cute stationary in shop. Oh goshhh, this hobby make me bankrupt. LOL *English isn't my mother tongue so I'm sorry if there are some grammatical mistakes. I hope you understand what I mean

Here's my email for contact me or e-swaps : [email protected]


Because very difficult to find snail mail supply here , I always excited when I found my penpals insert some goodies inside. I'm thankful for every things they sent to me. But please send something you love to receive too!

So here's my wishlist & favourite things :
🔹Washi tapes (especially vintage style)
🔹Old papers
🔹Paper pads / paper stock
🔹Die cuts
🔹Hot drinks
🔹Snacks (from your country maybe?)
🔹DIY / Handmade stuff
🔹Vintage stuff
🔹Pocket letter
🔹Words Sticker

Favorite Books

I love reading books in my spare time. When I was child I'm happy to visit school library. Also I like to read (full color) encyclopedia, so fun & full of knowledge in it. Around 6 years (since elementary school-junior high school) I subscribe children magazines. I like to reading comics too! I have some Doraemon comics. I really lovee any books written by Roald Dahl. You know children movie : Charlie & the Chocolate Factory? Yess, I read the novel before watching the movie. It is one of my FAV!! I love fiction story that can turn on our imagination & creativity.


  • Broken/dirty/damaged/poor used items
  • Chewing Gum (I ever received these & they melted & fused with its wrapping paper :( )
  • Sticky things (like chewing gum, sticky candy, but I love sticky notes)
  • Not really fan of postcard, but I would love to received unique/handmade postcards
  • I'm not a planner girl so I won't able to use any planner things, but it's okay if you want to (I will give it to my planner friend)
  • Anime/manga
  • Childish / too colorful things (like kawaii memo or reward/teacher sticker)
  • Don't worry I don't have allergy

About Swap

I will inform you if I sent it late and I always click 'sent' if I really sent it on that day. Sometimes I post the outgoing swaps on my instagram @melli_penpal but sometimes I forgot to take a pic (lol). Please be patient with me, because I live in country with uncertain mail speed. I sent all mail with postage stamps without mail tracking number. So, it could arrive (fastest) 2 weeks or (slowst) 3 months to your mailbox! Even I sent mails to Indonesia (the same country!) and never arrived in weeks, but months (2-4 months). Don't worry, sent to the overseas usually faster than to Indonesia itself. And if you haven't received it yet in 3 months please tell me first (don't rate me 1!) and I will resend your swaps.

Hello there! I am glad that you like at least some of the things that I have included in the swap (: It was fun setting the goods for you!

I just came back from Bali too.. it was lovely!! The beaches are lovely! I really enjoyed the Kecak dance in Uluwatu Temple... its so interesting! Cultures are interesting! But I hope it wouldn't annoy the people who were actually there to pray.. I mean I can understand us tourist in an-actual-operating temple... tourist can be over at times...

BUTTTTT, no one warned me about the roads! Haha! It was like a roller coaster, mind you I got motion sickness... I am bad with long, curvy car rides... I am odd that way, haha! So after the ride, I went out of the door and puke so bad! Haha!

Anyways, you have a lovely brand new week!

Cheers, Jan (:
