Thank you for visiting.
My name is Callie, and I am behind everything here. I grew up with a love for magic, spending my childhood between the pages of a book or in the forest next to our home. I saw the wonder of the mushrooms growing on fallen trees, the ripples across the water, and the spiders beneath the leaves. I often wondered where faeries and gnomes would live, or if mystical beasts tread the woods at night. This little letter business began in a pantry, believe it or not. With a little time, a little patience, and a lot of work, Charm Post exists as it does today. It's still humble, and still small.
To be honest, as an adult, the real world can be disenchanting. There is a lot of information we encounter each day that's filled with sadness. I figured I could use my skills to create a subscription for people to add a little magic to their day-to-day lives.
Grimbriar is my dream, as a school for mages where everyone is welcome and encouraged to learn about the world. As an adult, I'd say there aren't too many opportunities to use my imagination beyond creating materials for a job assignment. True, silly, fantastical imagination. I'm hoping that Grimbriar gives people of all ages the chance to imagine, create, and wonder again. Louise, your instructor and main character of these letters, travels the world to learn and teach magic. Her adventures are written to be bright, creative, and delightful. They encapsulate the essence of magic, pinging every sense for an immersive reading experience.
As I said, my name is Callie. I'm a cat person with a deep love for creating things. I was homeschooled K-12, as my family traveled a lot. I graduated from the University of Kentucky with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Digital Media and Design, though I've been an artist for many, many years. I'm in my mid-20s and spend my days tending to Charm Post. I write and illustrate the letters and cards, design and manage the social media and website, and fulfill orders each month. In my free time, I enjoy playing Dungeons and Dragons with my friends, crafting props and costumes, and learning about video game design and creation.
One day, it's my dream to renovate an old victorian home and open a home for senior cats.
