I'm a fan of snail mails! I want to make our mailman happy by continuing this handwritten art. A mailman once said what a wonderful feeling for him/her to see smiles of recipients when snail mails come from friends and loved ones! ^^
Favorite themes (in no particular order):
(a) Traditional Weddings/Bridal Attire, (b) Tribal/Ethnic Performing Arts, (c) Tribal/Ethnic Attire & Accessories, (d) Traditional Kitchens/Cooking, (e) Traditional Feasts/Food Festivals, (f) Open-Air/Local Markets, (g) Fun & Laughter, (h) Unusual Facts, (i) Irregular sized/shaped cards
If swaps require profile based, please select non-touristy types. Real and colorful postage stamps on mails are appreciated.
I'm also interested in odd sized/shaped postage stamp, bottle/boxed letter, and unusual material made cards/note cards & envelopes (i.e., magnetic, pressed flowers & leaves, textile, wooden).
I'm fond of quotable quotes. If you've one or more, feel free to share them.^^
I'm not fan of subjects and images on royal families, celebrities, head shots, politicians, statues/sculptures, reptiles, monsters, horrors and religions. Please save these themes for others who like them.
I don't collect ad/free/used, zazzle/etsy, cut-out and self-printed card. Exceptions are when I join "ad/free"/"used" card titled swaps.
Other than having loyalty for handwritten art, personal hobbies and likes include traveling, reading, cooking, tea & coffee drinking, musical drama, flowers, handkerchief & scarf, and organic goods.
I collect matchboxes, souvenir & fridge magnets, unusual bookmarks, airline poker cards/souvenirs, stuffed hearts, foreign bank notes, collectibles of Pepsi/Coca-Cola/McDonald's, cookbooks, and delightful taste of healthy food and drinks!
Though I enjoy certain dessert and specific sweets, please DO NOT send me candies, gums, chocolate, cookies and any food items which easily melt, spoil or crush. They don't survive well in overseas mail journey!
As for tea, I like natural/original/organic flavors. Please save instant coffee/cocoa/milk tea mix and rooibos tea for those who like them!
(1) To Recipients: Mail delivery from my country to overseas is unpredictably between efficient and relaxed travel.
Please allow up to 1.5 months for arrival of the swap. INFORM ME via PM BEFORE RATING if the mail has failed to reach you, and also, for concern on what you've received.
Your PATIENCE, Courtesy, and Willingness TO COMMUNICATE are Appreciated.
(2) To Senders: Kindly request to indicate full date, and personalize the written postcard/card/letter.
My preference on how postcard is sent is according to the swap requirement. If it indicates the written postcard to be sent is profile based, please have it mailed in an envelope (with the postcard written on as requirement indicates).
If you're going to or might send the swap late, please INFORM ME NO LATER than the deadline. It's a courtesy.
For ideas on what to write on naked card/postcard, for examples, describe where or how you got it, what you like about the image. Or, write about yourself. your thoughts, or your inspirations.
Swapping is not just about give and take, it's more of get to know who's who, and what's out there via the fun and sharing method! ^_^
