About Me

Hello!

I'm Sabrina. I like to travel; a fantastic way to learn about different cultures and customs. When I'm not exploring, I like to hear from others about their country, life, customs, etc.

I got back into snail mail a few years ago, initially with Postcrossing. Due to the pandemic and mostly working from home, as well as rising postal rates, I expanded on sending postcards and simple letters to making envelope art, stamping and simple paper crafts. Most recently, I’ve started making and swapping ATCs.

Additionally, I started to make and use wax seals, which again I’m happy to send or receive. I love washi tapes and washi stickers.

I'm still experimenting and finding my style, but my inner goth and punk really enjoys things on the alternative spectrum. I favour dark and bold colours over pastels. I particularly dislike pink and baby blue.

Some of my favourite themes: - Gothic - Coffee or tea - Steampunk - Alice in Wonderland - SANTORO GORJUSS - Macabre - Nature - Vintage

Please no animals in captivity, non-vegan foods & recipes, religious, military or sexist.

I subscribe to the ‘the simple things’ magazine and receive magazines from some organisations I’m part of, including: The Ramblers, The Vegan Society, The Big Issue, Seasheperd Conservation Society. So food, compassionate and eco-friendly lifestyle, nature and the environment are the main themes.

I love coffee and a day is not off to a good start without my two cups in the morning. ☕️ Then I switch to tea, mostly flavoured black, fruit or Rooibos. Not a fan of green tea.

Favorite Crafts

Mostly paper crafts: stamping, stencils, die cuts, wax seals, collage, simple card making, ATC.

I don’t journal, so have no use for bullet planner stickers, planner papers and I don’t know what to do with notepad papers either.

Instead, I love receiving things I can use in making happy mails, postcard and envelope decorations.

Comment: Just enjoyed the lovely tea that you sent. What a fun envelope full of so many tea related goodies. I really enjoyed your letter. I also experienced tea at Fortnum and Mason this past November. I love a good afternoon tea and F&M did not disappoint. We had the same problem. Had to pack up the cakes for later. Thanks for the fun swap.

Bonne Année, Happy New Year! May 2023 bring you the best of health, happiness, and wonderful swapping!

My apologies for the late greeting! My New Year's Eve curse continued and I've been sick in bed since 8 PM on NYE. At least there was no snowstorm this year! laughs
