PSA

Last edit : February 9th 2024

I'm only just starting to feel better and return to art. I'm hoping to go through my huuuuge backlog of mail and get some very very late ratings in. I apologise and I'm so thankful for your extreme patience with this.

I've created Let's Zine! - Discord server with a couple of friends. We welcome all zines enthusiasts ! It's shiny new and will be built around what members contribute.


🔒

Don't hesitate to DM me for private ATCs or zines swaps. :)


📮

My local post office has closed because Canada Post is sucky like that. Anything I need to have checked for non-standard postage needs to go through a friend's, as I have no car. Most mail doesn't need me to do that, and I'll let anyone know if a delay should occur. This doesn't impact mail I receive. We still have our mail delivered to the door.


📧

Please please please communicate with me before rating a 3 or 1. I will always resend if needed.

Be aware that I drop my mail in the nearest mailbox. There is no pickup on the weekend, so the postmark might show a later date than what is marked as the send date on swap-bot.


💯

I try to rate promptly but sometimes work gets in the way. I will always rate though. If you are worried, do not hesitate to contact me about it.

I do not give a heart for extras. I do not send extras for a heart. I do not decorate my envelopes. I want to keep my swaps as light as possible (and as requirements allow) to save on postage.


💌

I strive to be a good host. I will angel when necessary. Helpful advice is always welcome. Thank you to those who have commented and helped me along the way.

ATCs

  • Mostly hand-drawn
  • There are no spoilers on my Instagram account. I only post (long) after my ATCs are in the hands of partners.
  • I prefer to receive hand-drawn/hand-painted ATCs but welcome everything. I am however not very fond of very bulky ATCs. I stick by the rule "If I can fit it in a sleeve, it's all good".
  • I prefer my ATCs in portrait orientation : 2.5" at the top and 3.5" on the side

Thank you for some awesome zeens from Zeen tag!! I love the cat food one especially!

Elisabeth, thank you so much for the two wonderful zines from the forum tag. I love them! I can see why those two are so popular! Night Magic is sparkling (mysteriously!) with such beautiful (and mysterious!) imagery.❤️ And Shedding Season is so comical. I have imagined the same thing when I brush our dogs and cats. 🐕 😂 🐈‍⬛

Wow, we like some of the same Manga/Anime, also, we like some of the same characters. I hope we will meet up in ATC swaps as I'm working on ATCs showing Manga & Anime characters. It would be fun swap. - Kathy
