Who Am I?

My name is Abby, I'm on the older side of Millennial, and I love collecting stationery and trying all kinds of arts and crafts. I'm on a stationery no-buy for the rest of 2021, so please spice up my life with some happy mail!

I love reading, crafts and video games. I have a fluffy Maine Coon cat with thumbs named Chowder and I live in Witch City (Salem, MA) with my spouse and my younger sister.

I have almost 2000 rolls of rare and weird washi (hence the no-buy x_x) and I love to share! I'm open to private swaps, so if you're interested, shoot me a message.

Send me these!

Goodies: Art prints, postcards (I love illustrations, not so much photos), letter sets, Japanese & Korean stationery, patterned paper, postal stamps, ephemera, string and twine (I love Avril yarn!), stamped images, handmade envelopes, enamel pins.

Themes/ Aesthetic: I love all shades of green, watercolors, abstract patterns, nature/botanical, painted landscapes, field guide illustrations, bizarre/surreal, cityscapes, graffiti, video games, grungy edgy fashion, rainy days, daily life/monotony, cozy scenes, outer space (especially Saturn), creepy, Halloween, skeletons, sweary or crass, butts/nudes, 420.
