About Me

Cécile • non binary • they/them

If you live in France, I have a group for domestic mail : En France Uniquement, please join us :)

I am also on Postcrossing and r/RAoC because I love snail mails. I love stuffing my mails with whatever I can find that matches the person's interests :) From France, I can send up to 20g and then it's up to 100g for double the price, so I try to stick to the 20g limit ! When I send naked in a clear plastic envelope, I often go to the clerk's office and ask for a handcancel :)

I live close to the sea in France. I am vegan. I live with my partner, our cats, Perceval and Lancelot and our dog, Merlin.

I enjoy reading, doing embroidery, cooking and baking vegan food.

Favorite Books

I am a big fan of Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, books from Robin Hobb and fantasy in general. I don't like manga, except Sailor Moon (favourites : Mars ♥, Uranus, Neptune, Saturn, and Luna !).

Favorite Crafts

I make ATCs and cards. I like collage and watercolour style, I do both and I know sometimes it takes longer to create collage cards/ATCs than paint. I try to do very different things to please people so I enjoy receiving ATCs that are related to my favourite themes or aesthetics.

I also love to decorate envelopes !

Favourite Stamps

I collect USED stamps (= I prefer when they have travelled !) :

  • mushrooms
  • birds
  • butterflies
  • sea-life related (fish, lighthouses, sailboats etc)
  • magic (dragons, folklore, HP and more),
  • space
  • (vintage) maps
  • jewels and minerals.

I am also very interested in anything related to US/Canada/UK/Australia/NZ history and landscapes !

I collect maxicards, but not FDC.

Europa stamps 2022

Dear European friends,

I am collecting stamps and the 2022 Europa stamps have been a wonder to my eyes. I am trying to collect them all, used (not mint) so if your country has one, I'd be extremely happy to get it ! So far, I have :

Austria, Finland (both), Ireland (both), Lithuania (both), Germany, Switzerland (both), the Netherlands (both), Spain, Croatia (both), Russia, Portugal (MISSING THE DEVIL), Cyprus (both), Belarus (both), Vatican (both), Latvia (both), Ukraine (MISSING THE MAN), Poland, Czech Republic, Estonia (both) and France.

Lunar New Year 2024

This year is dragon and it's my sign ! I collect dragon stamps and cards already but I'd love to get your country's dragon stamp for 2024 if you have released one :)

Favourite Themes or Aesthetics

My favourite colours are the cold tones : (peacock) blue, (cold) purple, dark green, copper and silver. I also like gold, yellow and orange when they are paired with one of my fave colours.

No to : ❌ kawaii stuff ❌ traditional girly stuff (high heels, lipsticks etc) ❌ religion, religious references

I love 💙💙💙 :

  • mushrooms
  • postal-themed
  • medieval / Renaissance / Victorian
  • steampunk
  • dark / gothic
  • witches, skulls, dragons, fantasy
  • under the sea
  • space

I also like vintage and floral.

Favourite Extras


I like

  • pages of books (written and/or illustration), interesting fonts, bonus points if it's not in French or English !
  • music sheet papers
  • stamped images
  • anything Tim Holtz
  • birds and fish ephemera/illustrations

No to : ❌ stickers, ❌ planner stuff please ! (except for my favourite aesthetics/books/themes etc)


See my fave to collect !


I prefer black tea over green or herbal, but I prefer most of all the "liquid dessert" flavours (vanilla for instance). I don't like red fruit teas or flower tea. No honey please as it isn't vegan :)

Favourites Cards

I prefer :

  • simple postcard (rather than notecard)
  • personalised (if you can write something on the back of the card, and not just your name/date etc)
  • standard size (it's easier to store !), roughly the same size as a printed photo 10x15cm / 4x6 inches
  • good quality print (I don't like zazzle for instance)
  • illustrations (I collect : https://eu.zonerama.com/DPClamavi/)
  • an envelope (clear plastic is good if it's "sent naked" requirement but I prefer the stamp cancelled and on the card, not on the plastic sleeve if possible !), if it's cheaper for you naked without anything, go for it !
