About Me

2022 June UPDATE:

Mail is starting to get a bit better where I am, but it's... sporadic? Some of my mail takes about 16-17 days to reach overseas addresses, but others still take 30+ days. There seem to be no rhyme or reason to this (stuff sent to the same country on the same day, can arrive v far apart from one another.) So if my swaps are slow, please bear with me!

I do check on my older swaps around the end of every month, and automatically resend the ones I think should have arrived.


Marisa (she/they)

I'm a bookseller from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Currently I'm a Children's/YA and Comics buyer for the store I work at.

I'm aro/ace, enby, and autistic.

I love stationery, journaling, writing/making zines, postcarding, and reading. I don't craft, though!

I have two cats, Ollie (a calico) and Enjin (all black) - both are rescue cats.

I keep seeing these A-Z lists on other profiles and thought it would be fun to do! I guess I see this more of a "get to know me" thing rather than a wishlist or anything like that, though :)

Swapping & Rating

  • PLEASE remember to indicate which swap your card/package is from.

  • If you think your swap should have reached me and I haven't rated you yet, please contact me.

  • I try to send my swaps as early as possible, as mail takes longer to reach the US/Europe. And I do NOT flake! If you think you should have received a swap from me but have not, please contact me and I will resend.

  • I always contact my swap partners before rating a 1, and would appreciate it if my swap partners do the same for me.

Preferences

I like most postcards, but I especially like cards related to art, books, comics, cats, or any of my interests. Touristy cards are nice, too!

While I generally love anything related to children's books, please do NOT send me anything Harry Potter/JKR related.

I prefer store-bought postcards to handmade or ad postcards (although I do appreciate well-made handmade cards and interesting ad cards, so send away!), and I prefer naked postcards to those in envelopes.

Comment: Thank you for that cute sleeping kitty. I like Diana Wynne Jones since childhood. It's great to "meet" another fan of her ;). I have a fondness for her series of books "The Worlds of Chrestomanci". How about you?

Marisa, I have been so anxious sending something over seas that you might not get my card. I mailed on 11-17 BUT I did not put it was from the Int'l Xmas card swap. It was my first and I forgot that major detail. It was a small handmade card in a clear envelope (I think - I can't remember if I might have put yours in a white envelope thinking it might be safer) I signed my name Janitha Bardos. I sure hope you might have gotten it. If not I will get another to you right away. Please let me know.

NorthernBorder on Nov 23, 2008:

Thank you for the very nice postcards stash swap. I appreciate the postage stamps you used and your pretty handwriting. Happy holidays!
