About Me

My name is Anicka, I am married and have three awesome childeren.

I love sending ( and receiving) mail and always try to match your profile.

Favorite Crafts

I wish I was an artist, but I am not. I do love all kind of things from paper crafts to knitting to embroidery, but I am afraid I have no huge talent. That is the reason why I don't join much craft swaps: I don't want to disappoint my partner. If I join I promiss I do my best very, very much to send something nice.

Like list

I love mail and I am very easy to please, so this is not a wishlist, just a list of things I like , to , perhaps, get inspired:

  • love anything I can use for snailmail: pretty stickers, washitape, stamps, labels etc.
  • red riding Hood.
  • etsy fav or something inspired by it.
  • fabric for quilting.Just started to learn it. Please no fabric for childeren. I prefer flowers, batics etc.
  • Karel Capek tea.
  • Micush
  • nice letters.
  • Micush.
  • moomin.
  • embossing powder.
  • lettersheets from la papierre

  • illustrations by Quentin Blake.
  • unicorns ( for my daughter).
  • stickers: love them all except stickers for a boy and reward stickers. O, and I don't like Dora, Bob the builder etc.
  • red riding Hood.
  • vintage fairytales.
  • good paper glue ( glue which holds good and don't make the paper bubbling).
  • friendly people.
  • Belle and boo.

Please do not send

Please don't send me :

  • trash ( I really don't understand why people send food with an expired date from three years ago).
  • make-up : I am allergic to almost anything.
  • anything with cruelty to people or animals
  • loose memosheets, I have billions.
  • tea with mint, chamomille or vanilla
  • please no pieces of ribbon or lace , have to many at the moment.


Themes for postcards I love:

  • fairytales ( especially snowwhite and red riding Hood).
  • botanical drawings.
  • reading people.
  • pretty illustrations.
  • dinosaur.

I am not a very big fan of touristy postcards.

Comment: Thanks so much for your beautiful envie! I loved everything, starting with all the cute things you included inside (I love the illustrated postcard so much that I will frame it and put it near my desk) and finishing with the lovely decorated envelope (I am glad it didn't arrive damaged). Thanks for making me smile :)

Comment: Thank you so very much for a fabulous swap! Such wonderful postcards that you chose so well to fit my profile! I truly enjoy them all, but my favorite is the Chihiro Iwasaki - what a lovely watercolor portrait of the child! I love the card with all the bees buzzing, too -- and thank you for sending an extra postcard, beautiful postage (especially the Tour de France and Van Gogh stamps!) and the sweet Little Red Riding Hood note paper! Everything was perfect.

Comment: Thank you so much for this wonderful swap! First, I love the paper that you used for the envie! Anything, covered with birds, is perfect for me. I also love the birdie postcards! Charlie Harper is a favorite birdie artist! The last postcard, with the named birdies, is the most fun! I loved to see names birds are given in your country! Thanks again! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
