About Me

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 🤯

Favorite Crafts

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 :)

Snacks and Tea

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.

Comment: Sounds like you had a busy weekend. Hope you found some treasures at the Christmas market
Response: You're welcome! I bought a plate with candles and decorations to use instead of a wreath, so it was worth it :)

Comment: Thanks for joining my swap. The pink rose washi is really so pretty, I love the details of the drawing. Have a nice day !
Response: You're welcome! I'm so happy that it was a 10 metre roll!
Comment: I very much enjoyed reading your answers. I am also an only child, however I am not happy about it. That's interesting that you play the ukulele. I don't play any instruments anymore; however I used to play the piano, the guitar and the violin. I was in the school orchestra with the violin. I enjoyed it very much. I don't like tiramisu, due to the coffee. I normally order cheesecake. I also admired my grandma. She has since passed away. I miss her terribly.
Response: Thanks for the heart! I don't really practice playing any instruments nowadays but I have different hobbies now that take up all my time haha
