Hello! I'm 28 years old and live in Austria 🇦🇹, in the middle of Europe, with my partner and our one-eyed orange/white cat, "Mister". 🏴☠️🐈
I love making handmade postcards, greeting cards and little drawings and doodles and I'd love to share them with others!
Postal Service Info 📮
My local Post office is unexpectedly closed from Nov 27 to Dec 1!! Anything I post during that time will be processed on December 2!!
Apparently, when you receive my address for a swap it is formatted weirdly and there is an empty line with a comma. Ignore that. There is nothing missing but I had to leave the zip code/state empty because otherwise swapbot tries to make it a US formatted address which is the wrong order!
Mail outside of Europe can take up to 4-5 weeks. If you haven't received anything from me 1 month after the sent date, please contact me and we can work something out! ⏳
The cancellation date on my mail might not match the sent date! If I put something in the mailbox at the weekend or after collection, it only gets processed the next working day. ⌛️
✅ Animals - especially cats, but also butterflies, corvids, dragonflies, bats... Foxes are cute but not my favourite animal, despite my username! 🐈🦋
✅ Cards and postcards that have been written on. I like to get glimpses into people's lives, traditions, countries...
✅ Anything handmade - you can always send me handmade cards even if it's not explicitly in the swap description! ✂️
✅ Languages, cards in different languages. I can understand German, English, Italian, Finnish or Spanish. If you want to write in another language feel free to, but please provide a translation :)
✅ Nature, especially forests, mountains, anything floral ⛰
✅ I love travelling, so anything travel-related, e.g. tell me what to visit in your area!
✅ Colours: green, blue, pink, purple
✅ Glitter unless it's loose and shiny things, holographic paper and stickers, gold foil washi. I'm a magpie!
✅ Patterns, floral and geometric
✅ Photography (your own or store bought photography cards)
✅ Art, especially impressionism and urban sketching, but really anything handmade because I love seeing and learning new styles! 🎨
✅ Anything "unique", even if weird (think a weird postcard that you are not sure why anyone ever decided it should be printed)
✅ "Textured" cards that have some 3D or otherwise textured elements!
✅ Space themed stuff 🪐
✅ witchy and "creepy" things (think illustrations of skeletons with flowers, black cats, potions - no gory things) 🧙♀️
✅ cards with feminist/Pride/"stop climate change" slogans and messages on them 🏳️🌈
❌ obviously anything hateful
❌ religious items and cards - with the exception of Christmas cards, but then I prefer not to have Bible verses on them
❌ illustrations/photos of babies or children or drawings made by children 👶🏻
❌ not a big fan of apes, monkeys and horses 🐒
❌ balloons, I have a weird phobia of them 🎈
❌ Disney, kawaii, superheroes, anime 🦸🏼♀️
❌ fine and loose glitter that gets everywhere
❌ blank touristy cards as extras because I don't collect and it feels weird to pass on cards of places I've never been
❌ "toxic positivity" quotes and quotes like "live laugh love"
❌ strongly scented items because they give me a migraine 🤯
Current favourite is papercrafts, especially making my own postcards.
You might also receive a painting done with ink or watercolour pencils, or fineliner doodles from me.
I'm also a fan of fountain pens and writing in pretty ink colours! I'm also always happy to write short or long letters. 🖋
I also sew when I have the time and energy. I mainly make and fix clothes for myself and friends but every now and then I also make other projects. 🧵
Crafting supplies I like to use and receive:
✅ Washi tape, all kinds of designs but not kawaii/extremely cutesy; I really like floral designs, gold foil washi but what I really end up using most of is simple designs or even uni colour washi
✅ Stickers in most shapes and sizes, just not too puffy ones because my country's rules for flat mail are strict; see likes and dislikes for possible designs
✅ Doodles, drawings and paintings in all styles
✅ Paper scraps for crafting, except really tiny ones
✅ Die cuts (the paper cutouts, not the forms to make your own cutouts) because I cannot get them here
You do not need to send me extras to receive a heart, I will give a heart if I feel like you put love, thoughts and effort into choosing something that I will like or your art but not for the extras :)
If you send me snacks or recipes, eggs are fine or a little bit of dairy is ok, but nothing full of dairy and no meaty things please. 🥕
I like sweet snacks, but also crisps (or chips, or whatever you call them where you are). I prefer crunchy snacks, not a big fan of anything gummy-bear-like.
I don't need any more tea right now.
