About Me

UPDATE: I'm looking for partners for private "send postcard back" swap.I have tons of blank postcards I would love to come back to me written and stamped. I used to do this swap with a swappers from Korea and New Zealand. Usually we would send 1 or 2 postcards to be sent back and 1 for the partner to keep. If you're interested - send me PM, please.

Hello. my name is Ksenia. =^x^=

I was born in Russia, Moscow. When I was 14 my family moved to Israel. Currently I live in Tel Aviv. (I speak Hebrew, Russian and English) I am a painter / IT operator. I have BFA in Arts from Bazalel Academy of Art and Design. I love painting and drawing a lot, but I like my job too. Once I thought computers and art have nothing in common. Now I know it's not true.

I have very very eclectic taste... I enjoy contemporary art, urban culture and character design. When I'm traveling aboard I will go to at least 10-15 galleries and all of the museums. I'm a big fashion geek... (My favorites: Red Valentino, Ulyana Sergeenko, Meadham Kirchhoff and Orla Kiely) I'm crazy about shoes! I love all kind of music: pop, j-pop, j-rock, indie, folk, goth and metal. All together! but not classics... Currently most played: Elliphant, LP, Teagan & Sara, Beatrice Eli, Zella Day and Noonie Bao. Last live gig I went to and loved: Lola Marsh.

I love to cook! I like Japanese, Chines, Indian, Mexican and French foods. ( I'm not so much into baking thought) I could live on Eggs and Sushi... I love Strawberries and drink my Tea with Soy Milk. I adore Oysters and love any sort of raw fish dishes. My latest food-addiction: soy milk based cappuccino and bacon&egg salad sandwich

I read mostly fantasy books and watch SiFi movies and TV shows. I love comedies and romantic dramas.

  • Last book I loved: Storm of Locusts by Rebecca Roanhorse

  • Last TV show I loved: Bonding and Fleabag

  • Last movie I really enjoyed: big screen - Avengers: Endgame; TV - Ralph Breaks the Internet; Netflix - Dear Ex.

  • Stuff I am obsessed with right now: my niece comming from Moscow for a visit

I love opera and ballet.

I go to Zoos a lot! I love pandas and lemurs :)

Kawaii - is state of mind! I adore Japanese street fashion and I'm in love with Japanese products and sweets.

I collect Christmas ornaments. I have 359 of all kind: store-bought, hand-made, vintage; they come from more than 20 different countries. I always open for more... :)

Oour poor Kitty, left us for a better place. RIP sweet pushosh, we loved you so so much!

We have a new furry friend - his name is Soni. He is a cute rescue sweetie (his previous owner left him for reason unknown at the animal shelter when he was 9 months old...) Now he lives with me. And he is the sweetest kitty I ever honer to meet.

I like anime and cosplay; for every con at which I and my partner have our Steampunk goodies stall (and especially) for Purim I make one adorable (or NOT) character; one I can relate to. My last cosplay was Emily the Strange

Previous cosplays: Angel Crawfordfrom White Trash Xombie series , The Stalk from Saga graphic novel. Also last autumn I re-imagined my Delirium cosplay. It was the best version so far. ( Past ones : Daria from the 90's MTV animated series, Silent Hill Nurse, Nadia from First Squad, Pino from Ergo Proxy, Konata Izumi from Lucky Star, Dejiko from Di Gi Charat, Chii from Chobits, Delirium from Sandman)

I'm addicted to GoodReads...

I really like to do private swaps, if you're interested - please don't be shy :)


  • IMPORTANT: I will always always sent my swaps. Israeli post works as best as it can, but it may take time. If anything goes wrong - please contact me! Also I will always rate you and give you my heart. Anyone who invests in - some thought and creativity with regard to ones preferences - deserves it.

By the way - not rating someone's effort or not saying simple "Thank you" is just RUDE! (I checked it takes only 5 sec to type 8 letters, but it feels so nice)

Things I like:

  • anything and all about Christmas

  • pandas, red pandas (my all time favorite animal)
  • Hello Kitty
  • Alice in Wonderland (except Disney)
  • Steampunk

  • I prefer my postcards naked, stamped and with a little nice note from you :) Write something about your day, your family, your favorite things or just your favorite quote.
  • If the swap calls for sending postcards in the envelope or you're sending them as extras, please write something on their back anyway, with addition of your name and country.
  • I never send postcards forward. Even those I don't like 100% are keepers, because they were send by you. In time I will not remember from where and whom they come, so please write your name and country at least :)
  • I like stickers on the backside, but it's not a must. After all it's your card :)
  • Check my favorite received postcards for inspiration and to avoid doubles.
