Hi everyone! My name is Ankita and I am 23 years old. I have been snailmailing for 2 years and I love to make crafty mails and swaps. I am currently a student and I love to explore my interest areas. I am from India , the country which is known for its diversity. I am very friendly and open minded person. I really love making friends specially through correspondence. Some of my interest include painting, crafting , snailmailing, travelling and cooking. I love to watch Netflix tv shows a lot My fav theme would be: botanical and florals as well as shabby chic. I have this thing for plants and pretty flowers that I just love to adore them. Other than that I also love vintage botanicals too. I love nature , whenever I go to somewhere green I always take picture of lake, sky, trees , plants , birds because it’s very soothing to my eyes. I really like cats, butterflies and bees themed stationery. I collect coins, postage stamps, postcards and shaped Paper clips. My fav colours are mostly pastels and soft colours like shades of blue , pink and purple. I love stickers, ephemera, doilies , embellishments, sticky notes, pretty papers , washis, flip books , anythung handmade. I know we all are a stationery hoarder and who doesn’t love stationery?
If you want to see my creations you can check out my Instagram @paintcraftart where I post my mails. I am also open for private swap , feel free to reach me out.
I love making flipbooks, layered pockets, side pocket mail, pocket letter , decorating envelopes and postcards. I have improved a lot in making these now , earlier I wasn’t really that great but now I am surely better with making more crafty mails. I love to checkout YouTube and Pinterest for inspiration when I want to craft.

I always look at my partner’s profile and try to make swap as per their likes. ( even if its senders choice) Because I believe swaps are supposed to bring joy and I take my time to curate these.
I am very patient person and I am not fussy if you send your swap late but please inform me. But before rating you a 1 or 3 i will reach out to you first and wait for your response. I’ll only rate you 3 if don’t meet the swap requirements and I receive no communication from your side.
I will give you a heart ♥️ if it’s special. By special I mean if you have put efforts into making the swap and took your time to see my profile. I do swaps for fun and to bring joy to other person, not for the sake of rating or just getting it done.
I prefer sending proof image of my swaps to my partner either via Instagram or email whatever works for you. If you wish to do the same then you can inbox me :) You can always reach me out @paintcraftart on Instagram
On April 20th , my family and I were infected with COVID-19, due to which I couldn’t send my swap on time and I informed my partners about it (these swaps were hosted by me myself). I am now healthy and have recovered fully.

Also, mail is really slow due to pandemic so guys please be patient. If you haven’t received or didn’t like what I sent, please reach me out before rating me 1 or 3. I am sure we can work this out.
