About Me

Sarah - she/they - 29 years old - Austria 🇦🇹/Europe 🇪🇺 - working in education 🧑‍🏫 - living with my husband and one-eyed cat 🐈- autistic, so forgive me if I sometimes come across as a bit blunt, I don't mean it :)

Current: we have had some flooding... It's possible that some of my mail was lost or is delayed. If anything I sent at the beginning of June does not make it to you, let me know.


✅ 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 and cards in different languages. I can understand German, English, Italian, Finnish and Spanish, feel free to write to me in any of these languages. 🇦🇹🇪🇦🇮🇹🇫🇮🇺🇲

✅ 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 🏳️‍🌈

Do not send me extras please. I need to get rid of what I have.


❌ artwork or envelopes with lots of transparent type - it's difficult to recycle

❌ religious items and cards

❌ 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

❌ "toxic positivity" quotes and quotes like "live laugh love"

Favorite Crafts

✂️ papercraft, especially making postcards

✏️ drawing with ink or watercolour pencils, fineliner doodles, alcohol markers

✒️ writing with fountain pens and pretty inks

🧵 sewing - mainly clothes for myself and friends

Postal Service Info

Please be aware that my mail can be SLOW! Up to 2 weeks in Europe, 2 months (!!) to the US and other parts of the world

If you haven't received anything from me 1 month after the sent date (Europe) or 2.5 months after the sent date (outside of Europe), please contact me and I'm happy to resend ⏳

I live rurally. The "post office" is just a supermarket, so I can't guarantee it will be stamped and processed the day I drop it off. ⌛️

Comment: Thanks for sharing your weekend. I get the whole awkward family thing, I'm not close to my dad's side of the family either. Hope your husband's birthday went well!

Comment: Thank you for your PC. Ha, ha, my cat also likes to drink from a mug I keep on my nightstand or on my desk. ;)

Alocin07 rated for June 2024: What did you read? on Jul 5, 2024
Comment: Loved your book reading and I'm impressed you can read in two languages. I've seen Lisa's "None of this is true" book a few times over the last month or two. Perhaps a sign I should give it a go :)
katcon rated for June 2024: What did you read? on Jul 2, 2024
Comment: Thanks for sharing your June reading list with me! I like how you presented it, and I'm glad you included quick descriptions for each book. I've read a different book by Lisa Jewell (The Family Upstairs) and really enjoyed it, so I may have to pick up None of This Is True. Radio Sarajevo sounds really interesting, I have never heard of the siege of Sarajevo. It's a shame you didn't enjoy it more. I wonder if there are any other books written by those who experienced that time in history.

MeetSarah87 rated for Anti-Bucket List - Email Swap on Jun 30, 2024
Comment: Danke fürs Teilen. Bungee Jumping war auch auf meiner Liste. Andere Dinge von deiner Liste könnte ich auch ergänzen. Kein Namens Tattoo oder kurze Haare schneiden. Mindestens schulterlang müssen sie bei mir sein. Warum man unnötig viel Geld für Designer Klamotten ausgeben muss werde ich auch nie verstehen. Meistens sind die nicht mal hübsch.
UKrebel85 rated for May 2024: What did you read? on Jun 28, 2024
Comment: Thank you for sharing. I really struggled to read The Thursday Murder Club and I really wanted to like it. I might try it again.

Comment: Thank u for sharing! :) I agree with the cave exploring like just hell no, no.
hellojett rated for TGIF Weekend Notecard #398 on Jun 24, 2024
Comment: Thank you for your nice weekend card and aussie animal stickers :) Sorry to hear about the floods what a pain, I hope things are back to normal now and you could save and clean a lot of things. The tour sounds good, must be a nice job that doesn't feel like a 9 to 5 monotonous style.
MeetSarah87 rated for ESG: This or That? on Jun 18, 2024
Comment: Vielen dank fürs Teilen. War wie immer interessant deine Antworten zu lesen. Happy Swapping
Comment: Thank you for your letter! Your school year sure seems to last very long - but maybe it starts later. By whom is the card with painting and what does it depict? Looks very artistic.
Response: It starts in September! Hmm I don't remember what exactly I included, if it's some watercolour style it's no specific artist but from a no-name pack from Amazon
pahasiga rated for CPG Watercolor ATC #2 - Global on Jun 17, 2024
Comment: Thank you for your umbrella ATC! Looks like mine when I have put it to dry out in shower stall. Thank you also for beautiful swaps in this and other swaps!

LOL, you're a genius. I was wondering how the heck to make ink swabs. A brush makes total sense.... and I don't have a spare one for this purpose. Oy vey. Only makeup brushes in my house... but I'm not risking those, lol. I already get ink stains on my fingertips. I'm going to look super weird with ink stains on my face. Hahahaha... Anyway, cheerios!
