About Me

Hi! I'm Rivi, I'm a preschool teacher and writer in Berkeley, California (USA).

Mental Health Advocate. Neurodivergent (ADHD). Jewish. Blogger. INFP. Avid Knitter. Pisces. Planner Lover. Murderino. Ravenclaw. Preschool Teacher. Creative Writer. Old Soul.

I'm super crafty and creative, and love writing and sending happy mail.

I always send out my swaps on time, so if you haven't received something from me, please let me know/reach out so I can resend.

If there is an issue with postage, message me and I will venmo or paypal any costs. I can also mail you USPS stamps to balance out the cost, and I will send more than what is owed when I do it that way (I have a lot of extra postage! I love to collect new and pretty stamps)

I'm not picky about my dislikes; if I get something I can't use I will just pass it along.

Happy Mail and Swapping

I love swapping and happy mail! I am always looking for new penpals and swappers.

I just started doing friendship sheets and friendship books. I will happily return any and all homers-- send them my way! (I know a lot of the swaps have a limit on how many homers you can send-- no limit for me)

Still trying to figure out how to do label/sticker/etc. bag swaps. I will update this section when I get more into it.

Since I am a preschool teacher, I am happy to take any of those kiddie/reward stickers off your hands to use in my classroom. (I prefer regular decorative stickers for journaling, but I know a lot of people don't like the kiddie stickers and I am happy to receive them)
