About Me

My name is Missy. I am a wedding photographer. I started penpalling in February, 2020, and have found it a great way to make new friends. It's also been a fresh new way to fuel my creative side.
I just turned 50 and live in Illinois with my husband and 2 children. I grew up in northern Wisconsin and it is truly one of the prettiest places I have ever been (imo) :)

Favorite bug - luna moth

Favorite animal - Orangutan, ducks, whales, jellyfish, and polled herefords

Favorite flower - Dahlia and Peony

Favorite color - blue, olive, peony, and mustard

I tend to gravitate towards a lot of different styles, but nature and everyday life either vintage or not, makes me happy. I really like anything watercolor, clean and modern, torn and vintage, quality stickers are cool, and I LOVE sending postage stamps. One of my favorite parts of sending a letter is choosing the stamp to put on it. Call me odd.

Walking out to the mailbox to find a pretty letter in it is the best. Anyone else bummed when it's a national holiday and there's no mail?

@postalstamplife and @misselitephoto on Insta.

Would like to hear your favorite thing about living where you live. Honest answer, not what you think I would like to hear. :)

Please note: My address is correct as is with the "W" in the postal code. A lot of people ask me about that. :)

I Love

-Original Contemporary Art - Watercolor, Acrylic, etc...

  • Vintage Ephemera of botanicals, bugs, animals, fish, and marine life.

  • beautiful, vintage stickers (2 inches and larger)

  • Modern, comtemporary art stickers, papers, and stamps.

  • Vintage or new unused USA postage stamps

  • Pretty, vintage, or cool address labels

  • Blank watercolor papers, watercolor bags, or watercolor envelopes (the thicker the better and homemade is 100)

  • Heartfelt letters and notes.

  • Unusual or rare items I like - Polled hereford cattle (they have the white face and red body)

About My Swaps

I am very punctual and I always try to send my swaps out early, before the deadline. If someone doesn't receive one of my swaps within 3 weeks after the deadline date, please let me know right away, before rating me for the swap. I will gladly send out a replacement. I used to say 2 weeks, but the mail has been sporadic lately.

Please be kind. Things happen in life. Reach out first if you feel something is not a 5 for any reason.

Currently Excited About....

  • Vintage stickers or stickers that look vintage
  • John James Audubon images/vintage birds
  • Mushrooms (vintage paper, stickers, notes)
  • Handmade paper or thick quality watercolor papers.
  • Pretty or Cute Address Labels (blank I can address to my penpals on the front of my envelopes)
  • Photo pro magazines (or black and white images torn from them)
  • Unused vintage USA stamps
  • Vintage circus themed items
  • Ducks, whales (save the whales)
  • 4x6, or larger, colorful envelopes. Particularly looking for black or blue.
  • Quality writing utensils (what's your favorite pen to write your letters?)

Tea Swaps

I LOVE all teas, but mostly drink herbal. However, if you only have black or green teas, that's 100% fine. There are other tea drinkers in the house. My favorite right now is Rooibos or "red bush" tea.

Collections:

Currently collecting Pokemon cards for my son, so if you have any laying around.... even one is great.
