About Me

Sarah - she/they - 28 years old - Austria πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ή/Europe πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Ί - working in education πŸ§‘β€πŸ« - living with my husband and one-eyed cat 🐈- autistic and chronically ill, but doing my best πŸ’ͺ


βœ… Animals - especially cats, but also butterflies, corvids, dragonflies, bats... Foxes are cute but not my favourite animal, despite my username! πŸˆπŸ¦‹

βœ… Cards and postcards that have been written on. I like to get glimpses into people's lives, traditions, countries...

βœ… Anything handmade - you can always send me handmade cards even if it's not explicitly in the swap description! βœ‚οΈ

βœ… Languages, cards in different languages. I can understand German, English, Italian, Finnish or Spanish. If you want to write in another language feel free to, but please provide a translation :)

βœ… Nature, especially forests, mountains, anything floral β›°

βœ… I love travelling, so anything travel-related, e.g. tell me what to visit in your area!

βœ… Colours: green, blue, pink, purple

βœ… Glitter unless it's loose and shiny things, holographic paper and stickers, gold foil washi. I'm a magpie!

βœ… Patterns, floral and geometric

βœ… Photography (your own or store bought photography cards)

βœ… Art, especially impressionism and urban sketching, but really anything handmade because I love seeing and learning new styles! 🎨

βœ… Anything "unique", even if weird (think a weird postcard that you are not sure why anyone ever decided it should be printed)

βœ… "Textured" cards that have some 3D or otherwise textured elements!

βœ… Space themed stuff πŸͺ

βœ… witchy and "creepy" things (think illustrations of skeletons with flowers, black cats, potions - no gory things) πŸ§™β€β™€οΈ

βœ… cards with feminist/Pride/"stop climate change" slogans and messages on them πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ

I like to receive these kinds of extras:

You do not need include extras though, I have a lot of crafting stuff already and I don't give hearts based on the amount of extras.

βœ… Washi tape, all kinds of designs but not kawaii/extremely cutesy; I really like floral designs, gold foil washi but what I really end up using most of is simple designs or even uni colour washi

βœ… Stickers in most shapes and sizes, just not too puffy ones because my country's rules for flat mail are strict; see likes and dislikes for possible designs

βœ… Doodles, drawings and paintings in all styles

βœ… Paper scraps for crafting, except really tiny ones

βœ… Die cuts (the paper cutouts, not the forms to make your own cutouts) because I cannot get them here


❌ obviously anything hateful

❌ religious items and cards - with the exception of Christmas cards, but then I prefer not to have Bible verses on them

❌ illustrations/photos of babies or children or drawings made by children πŸ‘ΆπŸ»

❌ not a big fan of apes, monkeys and horses πŸ’

❌ balloons, I have a weird phobia of them 🎈

❌ Disney, kawaii, superheroes, anime πŸ¦ΈπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

❌ fine and loose glitter that gets everywhere

❌ blank touristy cards as extras because I don't collect and it feels weird to pass on cards of places I've never been

❌ "toxic positivity" quotes and quotes like "live laugh love"

Favorite Crafts

βœ‚οΈ papercraft, especially making postcards

✏️ ink or watercolour pencils, fineliner doodles - and I recently bought alcohol markers!

βœ’οΈ writing with fountain pens and pretty inks

🧡 sewing - I mainly make and fix clothes for myself and friends but every now and then I also make other projects.

Snacks and Tea

If you send me snacks or recipes, eggs are fine or a little bit of dairy is ok, but nothing full of dairy and no meat please. πŸ₯•

I like sweet snacks, but also crisps (or chips, or whatever you call them where you are). I prefer crunchy snacks, not a big fan of anything gummy-bear-like.

I don't need any more tea right now.

Postal Service Info

Apparently, when you receive my address for a swap it is formatted weirdly and there is an empty line with a comma. You can just ignore that. If you have any doubts, message me to confirm.

Mail outside of Europe can take up to 4-5 weeks. If you haven't received anything from me 1 month after the sent date, please contact me and we can work something out! ⏳

I click sent the day I drop off my letters, but I live rurally. The "post office" is just a supermarket and they hand cancel all mail on top of their regular jobs, so I can't guarantee it will be stamped and processed the same day. βŒ›οΈ

I use a PO box to receive mail. It can only receive letters from the national mail service. If you ever need to resend something via EMS or another service, PM me first and I will give you a different address.

Comment: Thank you for sharing your lists. It was fun to see that we have some answers on common.I also would love to learn Spanish and stop postponing. See the moonlanding would be awesome. If you ever learn how to make the Lambada cake please share the recipe. Never heard about the cake but the song is one of my favourites so would love to try it :-)

Comment: Love the super cute Bun Bun card, and the awesome decorations! So cool to see the wildlife at your Park&Ride...

Hugsie86 rated for ESG: Recalling some memories #2 on Mar 16, 2023
Comment: Thank you for your memories! I particularly liked the server/mountain one. I'm sure that view was amazing and it also reminded me when I worked in customer service. I wasn't a server, but I worked with customers in a bookstore. Just like you, it made me appreciate cashiers and I would never be rude to one. You never know what they went through during the day!
