About Me

Currently inactive, but can't wait to get back!

Dear partner, please before rating me poorly, message me and I will sort it out. Thank you. I always send my swaps on time, but post service is snaily slow.

It normally takes longer to reach Russia, especially from overseas. Please be patient with it. I am :)

If you will have any problems to get rated for the swaps I host (non-rating, unreasonably late rating, unfair rating, etc), please contact me! Contact me if you have any issues with my swaps though :)

Hello! My name is Tanya.

I love making envelopes. Basically I send my mail in handmade envelopes. But sometimes it is better to send in a standart purchased envelope though. Besides, I happen to ship items in used (secondhand) envelopes. I reuse everything I can! As they say, keep calm and reuse, reduce, recycle!:D

I collect souvenirs, Punch studio goodies, stickers, stationery... I would appreciate if you put nice postage stamps on the envelope instead of a label. Especially I'm fond of Christmas stamps. Those are the prettiest!:)

I love snail mail. Like most of us, I have been swapping and penpalling for a very long time. Factually, for 11 years. So I take swaps here very seriously, not as a joke. I send my swaps always on time. If life will happen, I will contact my partners.


I'm easy to please and I don't mind surprises!:) I have a wishlist, so you can have an idea what I might like.

  • books in English needed so bad! (in any conditions). I already have The Scarlet Letter, Pride and Prejudice, Tom Sawyer, Moveable Feast, A Tale of Two Cities, Harry Potter 1, Jane Eyre. I'm desperately looking for The house of the seven gables.

  • New York Times, Washington post, the Guardian, etc (clean second-hand is fine)

  • Anything related to Christmas, Autumn, American Football, American history, American presidents, flag, etc

  • decotapes (especially Christmas ones!!!)

  • washi tapes

  • Healthy life style brochures in eng.

  • tote bags

  • reusable shoppers from your local shops

  • nice or funny socks (size 40 European, 9.5 US, 7 UK)

  • letter set

  • writing paper

  • stickers

  • notepad

  • glittery items

  • rubber stamps

  • any women's accessories

  • any useful or decorative items for kitchen (tea towel, oven mitten, apron, cutting board, coasters, mugs, glass shots, pepper&salt shakers, pack of napkins, etc)

  • touristy souvenirs

  • Any periodicals in English (second hand is fine, as long as it is clean and non-freebie).

  • Forever 21 goods

  • Body shop goods

  • Starbucks souvenirs

  • Punch Studio stationery

  • anything I love NYC

Favorite themes of goodies:

  • cupcakes
  • cats
  • words, quotes
  • postal
  • flowers
  • fairies
  • Disney
  • Hello Kitty
  • Autumn
  • Christmas
  • turquoise

ATTENTION! If you send glass, ceramic or other fragile items (including magnets), make sure you wrapped it well. Note, that post workers shake parcels up like hell!!! )))


  • drinks/sachets (eg. tea, coffee)

  • anything related to insects and gothic

  • anime, manga

  • religious items

  • I'm SICK of everything vanilla

About mail delivery and rating

what I pledged

Generally packages travel 2 weeks to 2 months worldwide. The average term of delivery is 1 month. Seriously, 2 weeks... it's not enough to arouse concern.

As the rules say, it is good etiquette to contact your sending partner before rating them poorly. If you didn't receive the swap from me in reasonable amount of time, please contact me. We will find a solution.

I always send my packages before their deadline. But if anything, I will contact the coordinator and the partners.

I will rate you as soon as I've got your package instantly. If I didn't rate, then I didn't receive the package yet. Be patient, it can take longer to reach Russia.

Привет! Давно меня тут не было. Будем в этом году НГ обмены в русской группе делать?

betty194 on Sep 14, 2014:

I am so glad to see you back :)!! Best wishes, Betty

Hi! Yes, it´s me, your swap-friend 4ever <3 Funny it´s you who will be my partner, hehe. What a coincidence!

inthewild on Jan 13, 2014:

A very big thank you for the angel parcel that arrived today; I just love all the interesting items that you wrapped so beautifully. You deserve more than a star!! Much appreciated!!

kafekafe on Jan 2, 2014:

Тань, с Новым годом!! Надеюсь, у тебя там всё хорошо!

betty194 on Nov 22, 2013:

LOL, yes I think so :), but really, Russian post is getting faster and faster :), best wishes!

kafekafe on Nov 22, 2013:

А у меня уже закрутилась адская машина)) Надо что-нибудь для группы придумать новогоднее, но я кроме открыток пока не соображу ничего.

Lizard on Nov 22, 2013:

Would you believe, an envelope arrived today. I had to do a LOT of research to find the swap. It is from you for '$1 Christmas Stocking Filler #5' and took me AGES to find it. Turns out it hadn't arrived and you did a resend - which DID arrive. Now the first one has just shown up all these many weeks later. Thank you so much, it is a lovely angel card you made and I am keeping the special Russian toffees until Christmas Day as well.

kafekafe on Nov 21, 2013:

Привет! Как дела? Ощущается уже предновогодний ажиотаж? :)
