About Me

Hello my dear SwapPartner!

Its been a while (well more than just a couple of days)

To make a long story short: I was due on beginning August, but somehow my babygirl wouldn't agreed on that and came 3 weeks too early. Not only the early Birth - no she's all healthy and a strong character but that means she's also a so called cry baby. I had some really hard 3 months behind me... so Coffee is still ma favorite Beverage :P

I'm rolling back to swap bot slowly and try to fix all open swaps in nearby future... whenever i have a spare minute!

greeetings sara aka zasa


I'm only once a Week online here (usually Sunday Morning) so please be patient with me!

PLEASE write the swap name on the cards and envelopes you are sending. I am in a lot of swaps and not only on swapbot. I cannot rate you otherwise. Thank you :)

Antiquarian Bookseller, Art Teacher, Girlfriend, Pregnant, Daydreamer, Paperlover, Slob, Traveller, Skylover, Autumn, Creative, James Bondlover tbc

I speak: German, English and French


... i'm a young (well turning 30 this Year - still Young, or?) but long time active user at postcrossing.com. This is my main site for swapping cards. i thought i may try this one too - and since i did my first swap here i can say: yay! it's well organized and easy to share cards and other stuff!

ATTENTION I can just swap flat Mail things as the postage in Switzerland is really a shame! So nothing thicker than 2cm (0,79")

PLS send me only NEW and MODERN cards THIS --> http://flic.kr/p/e1qPvC isn't a modern card at all!

What i love, love, love...

If you really want to make me smile, pick a card from my favourites. They all are cards I would love to see in my mailbox!

Please check my received cards to avoid doubles! http://goo.gl/Me2fM (sorted by countries, themes and for forum users by Round Robin)

✗✗ PLEASE DON'T send me girly stuff, multiviews, teddybears, anne gedes, old cards, interior views, flowers - thank you! ✗✗

What to write? Recently I got a card with this text on it: "i guess you don't care much what people write so i won't bother" THAT IS NOT TRUE!

I like fully written cards, full of Emotions, your lovestory, your day, your grocery list, you can type it with the typewriter, write down what you've learned today in school, which book you're reading, the weather forecast, a plan from your flat, whatever you'd like!

I prefer my postcards to be sent written on and stamped - but I'm also perfectly happy to receive them in envelopes if the swap calls for it or if you're sending me multiple cards (or even if you just really want to send one to me unwritten!).

What i don't like

... cause it's not me:


✗ Multiviews (no problem when UNESCO though!)

✗ colourful Frames with Postcards

✗ oversized cards

✗ cards without Real PostageStamps

✗ Animals on Postcards (except of Elephants and Sheep)

✗ Flowers

✗ Baby girlie stuff like kawaii and hello Kitty and so on...

Favorite Crafts

i work mainly with paper, scissors, glue... i love collages, mail art, vintage art, atc, mini-zines...

as i'm an art and textile art teacher (my original profession) i can sew, knit, crochet and many more textile based things... i do like to to them in the evening in front of a good movie on my couch! :)

Favorite... (what i like)

... Color: Taupe, Teal, Plum, Black, Limegreen and Pastell

... City: Paris and Prague

...Food: Vegetables from my own Garden, Pasta and French Cuisine.

... Beverage: i don't drink alcohol (but i take a glass of red wine if i'm in france for holidays), i need coffee in the Morning and drink normal Water without gaz, i'm not the tea drinker and if then mint.

... Movies: i know every single James Bond (show me a Scene i can Name it), Action-movies with Jason Statham, No Limit, all french Movies like Amelie Poulain

... Music: Mainly Indie, Electro, Jazz and Chillout.

... TV Show: Unforgetable, MD House, Bones, Death in Paradise...


I ALWAYS send out the cards and crafts - i'm into Postcrossing for over 7 years and i can say with pride that i'm a well known and reliable swapper over there. So if it happens that you didn't received a card/the stuff i owe you -

pls contact me with a message! i will resend the stuff for SURE

It annoys me to get ratings and advises what I have to do and what not - the most thing what hurts me is when another user is assuming me... :(

so please contact me in any case of lost mail!

Comment: Thank you
Comment: I am so sorry for rating this so late. I have been taking a long break from swapbot because I was preparing for my wedding. It was over now and I am back on swap bot. Thank you for your swap. :)
Comment: Congrats! On your little one! I love the vogue postcard thank you! I hope you are able to get some rest while the baby is sleeping. Best thing to do is sleep while baby sleeps! Everything else can always wait because it will always be there like housework. It's not going anywhere so it can be done anytime! Best wishes for you and your little one! And thank you again for such a lovely postcard!

Hello Sara, Just letting you know that the L tangle that you sent me had not arrived at my house before I left for 6 weeks holidays yesterday. Looking at the date you sent it, it should be close. I will contact you again when I get back from holidays. Ruth

Hi just letting you know i received my stamp journal back. Thank you so much and sorry for all the hassle you must have gone through with it. Thinking i might make a new smaller one and stick these stamps on it to make it easier. xx
