About Me

Hey there, I’m Adriana! I'm 28 and I live with my boyfriend of 5 years and our two perfect cats, Cooper and Bagels. I'm a 20+ year resident of Florida and currently live in Clearwater, famed for its beaches and the creepy cult that took over our downtown area haha. I've almost graduated from my Public Policy and Administration bachelors program but the pandemic made me realize I wanted to slow down and really work with what I love and value. Then I figured out that includes a lot, so now I'm just allowing myself to learn and explore and just do what I want to do! And basically, that just means hanging out with a lot of plants and dirt :)

How I Craft

I really only do paper crafting and mail art. I love spending time on making an interesting and eye catching envelope when I can and often do so even when the swap doesn’t call for it, because that’s half the fun for me! I love collages but I use everything from washi and stickers to recycled bits of ephemera and paints. I wouldn’t call myself a talented artist, but I put a lot of love and effort into my work and I think it results in something pretty cool :) I don’t have much of a need for supplies for other art forms like knitting or jewelry making- my creativity is certainly a very 2D kind. However if you have a special bit of ribbon, twine, or a stunning bead you’d like to share just for it’s individual beauty, I can appreciate that :) I’ve received such odd surprises that have become treasured parts of my snail mail collection, I’ll appreciate anything sent with love!

I love it, some don’t, and that’s totally cool!), Tea (No fruity flavors please!),
V- Vintage,
W- Woodland imagery, Wildflowers, Washi, Witches
Y- Yule/ Christmas ( I was raised celebrating Christmas and the holiday means a lot to me, but as an adult I’ve come to celebrate the season as Yule instead. I love Christmas greetings too, and can appreciate a religious card if that is how you celebrate. Either way, it’s the happiest season of all :), Yellowstone (and the Tetons!), Yellow

I’m Not Such A Fan Of:
Fandoms/ Disney ( I love the animated movies, but I’m not interested in any disney related ephemera or stickers)
Stickers for kids, reward stickers, etc
Anything fruity
Excessive plastic
Touristy postcards (I’ve had exceptions of course :)

Comment: Adriana, what a lovely job you did on these envies. Each one is unique and no not too busy or me. I like all your fun elements. Thanks for joining my swap and for the extra goodies. Such cute butterflies and flowers. Hugs from Arkansas
Risna rated for Ugly PC Swap #56 on Jul 25, 2022
Comment: Thanks for the "ugly" PC. Just like you I wouldn't exactly call it ugly but I agree that it's just too busy. Plus I'm not really into floral designs. But hey... that just makes this card perfect for this swap! ;-)
Comment: Thank you

I wish I could put it into better words. You have truly brought so much happiness into my life with this beautiful swap! I also can't believe this is only your 4th ATC! It look AMAZING in every single way and it is so perfectly put together!! It looks like you have been creating them for years!! Thank you so much for your kind words about my graduation and about my Kiwi. I truly do appreciate that and you so much! I loved how you went into detail with your thought process in how you created this ATC! It was so fun to feel like I was watching the process in my head! And to also know how much thought you put into it, made my heart feel so full. I truly love every single that you sent with my whole heart. I am super excited to add the ATC into my collection and I love the adorable extras that you sent as well! I truly wish I had better words to describe how much I love and appreciate everything. I am so grateful for you<3 You are such a beautiful soul<3 Thank you so so much for everything<3<3
Response: Oh my goodness now I'm crying!! Thank you so much for allowing Kiwi to be my muse for that card, it was such a joy to make, but not nearly as amazing as reading your response! I really appreciate everything you said, and equally have no words to express how squishy and happy your comment has made me! What an awesome website and world :)

wolfeagle rated for ATC Love on Jul 6, 2022
Comment: Thank you so much. It's a great ATC, especially as it's one of your first. Dr. Strange is one of my favorite movies, so it's what I thought of also for the bottom. And your envelope and letter is fantastic too. Definitely qualifies as amazing mail art, and I would be happy to swap with you anytime.
Response: Oh yay!!! I'm so happy to hear you liked it, thank you so much!! And of course thank you for setting up the swap :)

Byn0604 rated for ATC 4 you and me on Jul 1, 2022
Comment: Thank you for the lovely note and ATC for this swap. I think you don't have anything to worry about- your ATC techniques are spot on! There's only 2 tiny things that I might suggest, and that is to make sure to trim any elements that might hang off the main body of the card to make sure it slides into and out of the protective sleeve easier. You shouldn't have to force it into the standard trading card sleeves, if you do its just a hair too wide. Second is just a tiny thing, You forgot to put your swap-bot user name on the back of the card! Now on to the things I LOVED- I loved the color scheme that you chose, and I really like the layering and the golden triangles over the girls eyes. Thank you for such a cool and interesting and frankly, AWESOME ATC.
Response: Oh my goodness I can't believe I forgot to put my SB name hahaha. Thank you so much, I'll definitely make sure to trim a little more! But mostly thank you so so much for being my first ATC swap and giving such great and kind feedback! I'm so glad you liked the card, I'm sure I'll be making many more after this great experience :)
Comment: I absolutely love everything you have send me! These stickers are so precious. Thank you! ❤️ I'll pass on your postcard in the next round 😊. If you ever want to do a private swap let me know and I can send you Flow Magazine goodies I'm not using 🙂
