About Me

Hello! I'm Makenzie, a 21-year-old girl from sunshiney California. I love mail swapping because I like to receive things that I can put in my journals, from notes to ephemera to art. My journals are a place I put beautiful things so that I can flip through them and feel my heart fill. I'm also an artist; I decorate the walls around my desk with pretty things and I use collected items in my mixed-media art.

I've been drawing for many years now. Typically my pieces are mixed-media; I use mostly markers and colored pencils but occasionally work with gouache and paint parkers. I would love to talk with more people who draw, since I don't have many other creators in my life who aim to continually practice their art. My Instagram where I post my pieces is @poppyanddaisyco or message me for my penpal information if you'd ever like to chat!

I'm currently studying Botany, with plans to become a Horticulturist and Botanical Illustrator. My dream is to start a small farm in the countryside, with fruits and vegetables and sheep and goats.

I have two cats, Daisy and Poppy. Daisy is a gray and white cat who loves to snuggle. Poppy is a brown tabby who loves to play. I also have a hedgehog, named Basil, who loves to sleep.

Other things I dabble in include video making, Tarot reading, poetry writing, and stamp collecting. My mom gifted me her stamp collection, and I collect nature-themed stamps. My favorites are botanical and bird-themed. I also love tea and enjoy just about anything.

I don't give hearts out based on extras. I give them based on the quality of the mail I'm sent and how likely I am to use it in my journaling. I take care to send out packages tailored to the recipient and I give hearts when I can tell that my partners have done the same!

WoodlandBanshee on Jun 9, 2020:

Hey there, and welcome to swap-bot!! Please don't be discouraged by @ceydaodemir rating. She rated me a 1 as well and has 5 different accounts and is a notorious 1 rater. I also got a 1 from her for the same swap. Because she has been fully suspended, you can delete the rating (there should be a place for you to do beside "reply". Unfortunatley this happens sometimes.
