About Me

hello everyone :) my name is Febriani. I love cats, handwriting, reading, crafting, and some more things mentioned below. I had been registered in this site for a long while, until finally I have more time to actually participate in swaps in April 2018. I enjoy writing postcards, note cards and letters, zentangle, zendoodle, and just started to learn watercolours to be applied in ATCs or smaller formats. I write daily journals with minimal decorations. You can look at them on my Instagram.


  • cats, big or small (I have four cats. My husband loves snow leopards and pallas cats)
  • cute animals
  • nature themed goods (cut-outs, stickers, note papers, postage stamps, etc)
  • general book themed goods (not specific series unless it is from the authors mentioned below)
  • postage stamps
  • stickers
  • note papers
  • blank note cards
  • art prints (especially watercolour based)
  • Higuchi Yuko and Nara Yoshitomo's merchandises
  • washi tape samples
  • pretty things I can stick on my journal :D
  • teas: green, darjeeling, oolong, genmaicha, almost everything I guess
  • East Asian traditional culture
  • traditional houses and clothes
  • the art of mindfulness
  • fountain pens (if you would like to send FP ink cartridges, please mind that I can only use Pilot ones)
  • Touken Ranbu... I'm a seasoned saniwa and I love all my sword boys. I will be over the moon if you send anything related to this game. My favorites are Izuminokami Kanesada, Hasebe and Higekiri.
  • if you have any oversized postcards you do not want (with decent image on the front), I am willing to receive them unwritten in envelope. I tend to experience word explosion that I often run out of space to write in the postcard, LOL!
  • also if you have some damaged postage stamps you do not want, I can take them for my journal :)


  • religious
  • political
  • all bugs (except butterflies)

also please do not send me banknotes. surely other people who collect or will most likely use them will appreciate them more than me :)

please take note that overseas mails can take a while to arrive to their destination. as in 21 May 2018, I recently did a quick research on Postcrossing and found that postcards from my country tend to take more than 30 days to reach the U.S. and some European countries :( please be patient if you are expecting something for me. if you have not received any thing you suppose to receive from me after 60 days, kindly notify me so I can remake and resend the mail.

also, please take note that the date in my place changes way earlier than in the west. the postmark date may be a day later than the "sent" date recorded here.

due to personal circumstances, I have to stay at my in-laws' place for two weeks every month. some mails with earlier signup date may be ready, but I usually can deliver them to the post office only when I am not staying there. however, kindly be assured that I only sign up to swaps I know I can send on time.

next mail out schedule: June 25 - July 6, 2018

if there is a chance that you think we can be good letter-focused penpals or postcard pals after receiving something from me, let me know :)

Favorite Music

I've been a big fan of Plastic Tree, a Japanese rock band, since around 2003. my other favorite bands are MUCC, merry, coaltar of the deepers, sleepy.ab, guniw tools, cali=gari, the cure, the strokes, radiohead, kings of convenience, sore, tika and the dissidents, melancholic b1tch, and a lot more. Recently I listen to DKFM shoegaze radio and some jazz playlists on Spotify a lot. Please share to me if you know some nice shoegaze or jazz playlists on Spotify.

Favorite Books

works of Haruki Murakami, Hiromi Kawakami, Milan Kundera, George Orwell, Jostein Gaarder, Jane Austen, Natsume Soseki, Ryunosuke Akutagawa, Osamu Dazai, Yukio Mishima, Nawal el Saadawi, and some authors from my country (Seno Gumira Ajidarma, Nh. Dini, Pramoedya Ananta Toer, Danarto).

Recently I read some of Kafka's short stories and have been thinking to give his novels another chance (excluding Metamorphosis which may be more of a short story, I found them very confusing). However, I have been occupied with Indonesian classic literature for some time.

all time favorite books:

  • 69 by Ryu Murakami
  • The Solitaire Mystery by Jostein Gaarder
  • Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami
  • Immortality by Milan Kundera

I also read mangas! My recent favorites are Mahoutsukai no Yome, Somali to Mori no Kami-sama, Totsukuni no Kanojo, Akatsuki no Yona, Minato Machi Neko Machi and Otoyomegatari.

Favorite Crafts

crochet, cross stitch, and knitting. Recently I learned sewing.

Favorite Television

I don't watch a lot of things these days, but here are my recent favorite anime:

Psycho-Pass, Shinsekai no Yori, ACCA, Hoozuki no Reitetsu, Touken Ranbu Hanamaru, Katsugeki Touken Ranbu, Mahoutsukai no Yome, Houseki no Kuni, Tatami Galaxy, Uchouten Kazoku

TV shows I enjoy:

The Royals, Empire, Next Top Model franchises, Masterchef franchises, Mad Men.. looking for period dramas recommendations (I have Downton Abbey on to-watch list).

enjoyed randomly when my parents have them aired on their TV:

NCIS franchises, 9-1-1, Criminal Minds, Chicago series, Law and Order: SVU
