About Me

Hello! Nice to meet you! :)

I love writing. I have spent over 30 years journaling alone, and now I run a snail mail group where we gather together to write letters to pen pals, exchange paper goods, and do paper crafts. I love everything about snail mail from writing the letter or postcard to decorating the envelope and finding the perfect vintage stamps to finish it off!

I am basically obsessed with snail mail, so I love stationery paper, note cards, flat cards, postcards, stickers, washi tape, notebooks, pens, stationery sets, unique or handmade envelopes, scrapbook papers, envelope labels, stamps etc. I love things related to mail or postage, especially vintage type stuff.

ABCs of Me:

A: April is my birthday month, Air Mail Stickers, Address Labels

B: Budapest, Bagels, Board Games, Botanicals, Baking

C: Copenhagen, Crochet, Card Making, Crafts, Coffee, Chocolate, Christmas (the secular version of the holiday – lights, trees, Santa, etc), Chickens, Cooking

D: Diamonds (my birthstone), DIY Craft Projects

E: Envelopes, I’m kind of obsessed with small envelopes right now. I also love unique shapes and sizes of envelopes.

F: Flowers, Fruits

G: Green is my favorite color

H: Helsinki, Happy Mail Packages

I: Iceland, Ice Skating

J: Journals and Journaling

K: Korea, Knitting

O: Office Supplies

P: Postcards, Potatoes, Plants, Postal-related items, Paperclips (cool or unusual ones), Pens, Puzzles, Pen Pals

Q: Quiet

R: Recipes (vegan or vegetarian), Rubber Stamps

S: Seoul, Stockholm, Stamps, Stickers, Stationery, Santa, Snow, Star Trek: The Next Generation is my all time favorite TV show, Snail Mail

U:

V: Vintage or Vintage Themed Items, Vintage Shopping, Vegetables

W: Washi Tape, Winter is my favorite season, Waffles, Walking
