I'm Sabrina. I like to travel; a fantastic way to learn about different cultures and customs. When I'm not exploring, I like to hear from others about their country, life, customs, etc.
I got back into snail mail a few years ago, initially with Postcrossing. Due to the pandemic and mostly working from home, as well as rising postal rates, I expanded on sending postcards and simple letters to making envelope art, stamping and simple paper crafts. Most recently, I’ve started making and swapping ATCs.
Additionally, I started to make and use wax seals, which again I’m happy to send or receive. I love washi tapes and washi stickers.
I'm still experimenting and finding my style, but my inner goth and punk really enjoys things on the alternative spectrum. I favour dark and bold colours over pastels. I particularly dislike pink and baby blue.
Some of my favourite themes: - Gothic - Coffee or tea - Steampunk - Alice in Wonderland - SANTORO GORJUSS - Macabre - Nature - Vintage
Please no animals in captivity, non-vegan foods & recipes, religious, military or sexist.
I subscribe to the ‘the simple things’ magazine and receive magazines from some organisations I’m part of, including: The Ramblers, The Vegan Society, The Big Issue, Seasheperd Conservation Society. So food, compassionate and eco-friendly lifestyle, nature and the environment are the main themes.
I love coffee and a day is not off to a good start without my two cups in the morning. ☕️ Then I switch to tea, mostly flavoured black, fruit or Rooibos. Not a fan of green tea.
Mostly paper crafts: stamping, stencils, die cuts, wax seals, collage, simple card making, ATC.
I don’t journal, so have no use for bullet planner stickers, planner papers and I don’t know what to do with notepad papers either.
Instead, I love receiving things I can use in making happy mails, postcard and envelope decorations.

As mentioned, I'm not a fan of pastels, so please keep for someone who will enjoy and use such coloured items.
I have little to no use for journal cards, sticky notes, used stamps.
