I love writing letters and creating mail packages - I used to do it all the time when my friends lived far afield! The people I know now live close at hand and I yearn to make up some fancy packages for fun.
Collage is my jam, but i also enjoy drawing, stamping, painting, stickering, and (unrelated craft) knitting. I enjoy dabbling in book binding, and I've been known to alter books like crazy too. I'm always on the lookout for new ideas of paper crafts. I adore ephemera of all sorts, and want to swap flat pack like those beautiful envelopes by kpop fans all over IG. I am not however a kpop fan (too old yo) and would feel like a weirdo sending mail to a young person.
As a side note: I try to avoid glitter if I can ( sometimes very difficult to do in crafting), please try not to send me things with glitter. Its the devil to clean up and the plastics are hell on the environment!
I like postcards showing artwork - famous, ads from shows, artists cards, you name it. Sculptures, paintings, photos, monuments, all good. I'm not crazy about tourist memorabilia style cards.
Pride and Prejudice
The museum at Purgatory
Harry Potter Series
Everything is Illuminated
Big Hero 6
History, Castles, Ancient Cultures
Witches - Baba Yaga, Arthur Rackham illustrations
Handmade things, wobbly edges and all
Textile design, Fashion, Vintage magazines
Cats- pretty much anything with cats on it is gold.
Coffee (in the morning) and tea (in the afternoon)
Pink, girly, flowery things, bows, lace, Marie Antoinette (the film) is totally my fantasy aesthetic.
Leopard print is a neutral
I adore orange (the color)
Super touristy cards
Effusive sentimental poems
