Sarah - she/they - 28 years old - Austria 🇦🇹/Europe 🇪🇺 - working in education 🧑🏫 - living with my husband and one-eyed cat 🐈- autistic and chronically ill, but doing my best 💪
A heads-up: In June, I am on a long break from work and will check my PO box only intermittently (because it's near my workplace and not where I live).
✅ 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 🏳️🌈
I like to receive these kinds of extras:
You do not need include extras though, I have a lot of crafting stuff already and I don't give hearts based on the amount of extras.
✅ 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
❌ 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"
✂️ papercraft, especially making postcards
✏️ ink or watercolour pencils, fineliner doodles - and I recently bought alcohol markers!
✒️ writing with fountain pens and pretty inks
🧵 sewing - I mainly make and fix clothes for myself and friends but every now and then I also make other projects.
Apparently, when you receive my address for a swap there is an empty line with a comma. You can just ignore that. If you have any doubts, message me to confirm.
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! ⏳
I live rurally. The "post office" is just a supermarket and they hand cancel all mail on top of their regular jobs, so I can't guarantee it will be stamped and processed the day I drop it off. ⌛️
I use a PO box to receive mail. It can only receive letters from the national mail service. If you need to send something via EMS or another service, PM me first and I will give you a different address.
Returned mail: Vintage fashion ATC was returned to me undeliverable as addressed to @mlbstudios I'm waiting for confirmation on their address before resending but they have not been online in a month
