PSA

Last edit : June 22nd 2022

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 received. We still have our mail delivered to the door.

I'm caught up on ratings. If you haven't been rated, I haven't received it yet ! :)


Always on the lookout for private ATCs swaps, and now for zines too !


📧

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
