Last edit : July 7th 2021

📦

I am moving on July 17th so my address has now changed. I will have mail redirect for a year so nothing should get lost in transit.

I am midway through my pile of mail to rate. I am aiming to get everything done before the move.


Always on the lookout for private ATCs swaps, and now for zines too !


📧

Please please please communicate with me before rating a 3 or 1. I will always resend if needed.

Be aware that I drop my mail in the nearest mailbox. There is no pickup on the weekend, so the postmark might show a later date than what is marked as the send date on swap-bot.


💯

I try to rate promptly but sometimes work gets in the way. I will always rate though. If you are worried, do not hesitate to contact me about it.

I do not give a heart for extras. I do not send extras for a heart. I do not decorate my envelopes. I want to keep my swaps as light as possible (and as requirements allow) to save on postage.


💌

I strive to be a good host. Helpful advice is always welcome. Thank you to those who have commented and helped me along the way.

I will angel when necessary. All my swaps do mention "If you are interested and available to angel if needed, please let me know." This is meant as a precaution should I be unable to angel due to Real Life happening.

ATCs

  • Mostly hand-drawn
  • Time spent on an ATC : anything between 45 minutes and an hour
  • There are no spoilers on my Instagram account. I only post process and finished product pics after my ATCs are in the hands of partners.
  • I prefer to receive hand-drawn/hand-painted ATCs but welcome everything. I am however not very fond of very bulky ATCs. I stick by the rule "If I can fit it in a sleeve, it's all good".
  • I prefer my ATCs in portrait orientation : 2.5" at the top and 3.5" on the side

Zines

  • Digital and hand-drawn, also writing poetry
  • Available at my Etsy shop as I release them (link up top)
  • Use code SWAPBOT for 15% off when you buy two zines or more
