PS1: "My Mail Box" is part of the address. Do not leave it out or the address will be incomplete.
PS2: Due to the pandemic, please expect delays in international mailing. I always have photo proof of sent mail. I am unable to resend due to high postage and I usually only have one copy of the things I send out. But I can send you photo proof anytime.
🙋🏻♀️Hi! I am Wen. I am a freelance piano and music teacher.
I draw on postcards and envelopes. You are welcome to view my mail art on my instagram. :)
I also enjoy travelling, photography, cultures, history, and inspiring & thought-provoking dramas & books. Currently watching "New Amsterdam Season 2".
I can read, write and speak fluent English and Mandarin.
For sender's choice postcard swap, I will still try my best to send based on my recipient's preferences and wishes.
If you plan to flake or scam, please remember that karma exists.
Other than postcards, I collect washi tape samples in a washi tape samples journal. I also recently just got back into stamps collecting.
Please use real postage stamps when mailing to me (no sticker label postage please, if possible).
I am respectful, responsive and communicative. So I would really appreciate responsive and communicative swappers who are respectful as well.
In general, please try to avoid sending items that are or with:
Clowns, dolls, glitter, gore, horror, insects, junk, neon, mature content, monochrome, reward stickers, stickers that are raised, smoke smell, scented, tea bag, tea leaves, used/vintage, vulgar.
For postcards, if possible, please try to avoid sending:
F A V O U R I T E S (in general)
Colours: Pastels and happy colours that are not overly bright and/or loud
Animals: Rabbits, monkeys, and any other cute ones
Cartoon Characters: Mickey, Minnie, Donald Duck
Movie Characters: Wonder Woman, Paddington
Please have the postcard written and stamped (or if more than 1 non-touristy postcards then all unwritten and blank in envelope).
If you have time to spare, please check my very small collections and some postcards that are still on their way to me here. I appreciate non-duplicates, thank you for taking the time to check!
I appreciate and am happy to receive any nice postcards that you choose to send and would want to receive yourself and not from my list of dislikes above. But if you need ideas...

🖋 Writing 🖋
Please try not to cover up any descriptions about the card as I would like to read them. Please also remember to write (or draw) a message, date and your name on the postcard. Some prompts:
About the postcard or the stamps
What song or music comes to your mind when you see what is featured on the front of the postcard?
What is the greatest challenge you have ever overcome and how did you do it?
How is the music education at where you live? Is there a compulsory instrument that the children must learn? Is piano learning/studying popular at where you live?
What is a festival/holiday you are celebrating this/next month? Any music, instruments or songs related to it?
🎠 Stamps 🎠
I enjoy looking at interesting or special stamps on postcards especially:
Beautiful and/or matching stamps related to what is featured on the postcard
Stamps that are/feature:
-Odd-shaped (like USPS sports balls)
-Special effects (lenticular, holographic, foiled, etc, like USPS Art of Magic)
-Europa 2014: Already have DE and RU
I feel strongly about rating. I always rate my partners in a timely manner with comment (a word of thanks at least) to show appreciation for their efforts. If you are a non-rater, please stay far away from me. I will not tolerate such unappreciativeness.
I also try not to give a 3 unless necessary.
