I'm aiming to get the last RAK mailed before the end of the month. So sorry this took way longer than I planned.

I have an ongoing RAK : Give me themes, I'll draw you an ATC.

Current status : [Closed]

Progress on current requests :

  • LilysMama : Still sketching
  • user6937 : Sent
  • Mayje : Needs address
  • Ruie : Inked


  • If you are a gamer or know a gamer, join or invite them to join the group Game Start.
  • If you are Canadian and love ATCs, give a think about joining Canuck ATCs


Please please please communicate with me if you do not receive something I sent and I haven't contacted you. I tend to send a worried note after three weeks. I will make it right. Be aware I am shipping from Canada and the usual delays are :

Regular mail to the U.S.A

The delivery standard for regular mail sent from Canada to the U.S.A. is four to six business days.

Regular mail to an international destination

The delivery standard for mail sent from Canada to another country (except the U.S.A.) is four to seven business days.

Please understand that parcels take longer.

Lately, mail from Canada seems to take longer to reach US addresses. It may take as long as 15 days before delivery. As for international destinations, the more realistic estimate should be up to ten days.

I drop my mail in a street box, unless a stamp won't cover postage. Mail is picked up once a day. This means it's possible the postmark will show a later date than when I mark sent depending on when my mail makes its way to the local sorting center.

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 rate promptly : usually the same day I receive but sometimes I delay to the closest weekend after, only if it's hectic at work. I rate according to swap-bot's rating guidelines.

I do not give a heart for extras.

If I haven't rated you within a month of you sending, please contact me. It probably means I don't have your swap in my hands yet but you never know. Maybe I relapsed into my chronic problem of piling mail up until the end of the month.


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

I like the idea of public swaps, if only to help newbies gather ratings, and will do my best to weed out questionable swappers and keep my swaps safe.

I will angel when necessary. All my swaps do mention "If you are interested and available to angel if needed, please let me know." This is meant as a precaution should I be unable to angel due to Real Life happening.

If you need an angel for ATC swaps, you can e-mail me with the theme. I'll probably be able to help. :)

ATCs information

  • Private swaps ? Yes please ! Contact me to set something up.
  • Time spent on an ATC : anywhere from 45 minutes to over an hour between initial idea and finished product
  • I suck at backgrounds something fierce. I apologise about that. I'm trying to get better at it but it's a long and dark road.
  • There are no spoilers on my Instagram account. I only post process and finished product pics 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

Comment: Your one of my fav artists! I followed your whole inktober& love your ig so getting something from you was so exciting! Lol . I loved how the kitty was the sorcerer! Most of the time they end up being a familiar to a witch .so I thought that was a very cool take on it. So sorry again for the late rating! I thought I had rated you love.my b! Hope you have a happy holiday season.❄
Response: It's so kind of you so say. I still fell like I've got a long way to go, LOL ! :) I guess when you have a cat, they tend to turn into the main character. I sure think cats would be very happy to summon bird friends. No worries, better late than never ! Happy holidays to you too. ❤️
