About Me

18 JUNE 2017 All swaps that have been received have been rated!

Hi! Greetings from Australia! I’m 28, currently on a break from studying design, and am a mummy to my beautiful four (almost five!) year old bunny, Cuddles ♥. She lives in my room, which is just the best!

I love snail mail, all things paper, and brightening someone’s day, which is why I love swapping! Putting together little happy packages for people around the world based on their profile makes my day! I love private swaps, so if you have anything in mind I’d love to hear from you!

I am a very visual person, and my world revolves around colour, design, stationery, patterns, illustration, painting, interior styling and crafts! I am an introvert and a homebody, but I love animals, nature and the outdoors.

Random things about me:

• I'm an Introvert with a capital I

• I love organization, yet I think I am more creative when my work space is messy

• I’ve never travelled outside of Australia

• I’m a champion procrastinator

• I'm an HSP - highly sensitive person




I always comprehensively read my swap partner's profile before putting together a swap and always do my best to send something I think matches their likes, or at least avoids their dislikes/do not sends.

I’m here to send and receive happy mail, not to count how many hearts I have. I almost always include extras with my swaps (or in the case of naked postcards, I put a lot of effort into decorating the naked side), not because I’m fishing for hearts, but because I think what I send will make my partner happy and maybe put a smile on their face. Hearts are lovely to receive and always appreciated, but they are not my goal.

If you are my partner for a swap and don't receive anything from me within a few weeks after a swap deadline please message me before rating and I will happily re-send. Please keep in mind that I live in Australia and it can sometimes take a few weeks for mail to arrive overseas.



If I don’t receive a swap a few weeks after the deadline I will always contact my partner, not just rate them a 1. I hate rating a 1, and will give my partner every chance to send the swap. I will only ever rate a swapper a 1 if a very long time has passed (months) since the swap deadline and I haven't received the swap or any communication.

I’m pretty liberal when giving out hearts, but sending extras, while appreciated, does not guarantee a heart. It’s about the quality of the swap. If something makes me smile/I see effort has been put into it/someone’s read my profile and tailored a swap to something I like, then I will give a heart.

If possible, I’d appreciate real postage stamps on swaps rather than the printout label from the post office that is often used instead. I’m not a true stamp collector, but I do love stamps and love seeing all the different ones from around the world. I keep all the pretty ones I receive. Thank you in advance :)


One final note...

I take swapping seriously and will always send out swaps that I have signed up for and rate my partners in a timely fashion. However, swapping isn’t a life or death situation…it’s meant to be FUN! If I am late in sending a swap for any reason, I will always message my partner/s.

No thanks...

I've tried not to make this list too long, but please note that Australia has very strict rules for what can and can’t be mailed here! Please do not send any magnets/anything magnetized, animal products, or any perishable foodstuffs. Also please do not send any food in general, including gum, tea, chocolate, etc.

I would also prefer not to receive the following:

• items that smell of cigarette smoke

• scented products - candles, soaps, perfumes, make-up (they initiate migraines)

• items with LOOSE glitter (I LOVE glitter, but I’d like to prevent a glitter shower when opening my mail ;) )

• themes: hunting, clowns, the circus, pirates, goblins, gnomes, witches, wizards, magic, gothic, owls (sorry owl lovers!), army/military, war, overly "dark" themes

• colours: murky colours, browns, dark greens, or mustard.

Comment: Hello Margarita! :) I was very excited to receive your delightful envelope of goodness today--SO pretty and fun! I'd forgotten about this swap and was just admiring your stamps right away anyway--the "have a wonderful day" stamp and the hello stamp and the air mail stamp are my favorites. I like how you included other paper and sticker elements to make it colorful and add some dimension, and you know how I love those forest creatures! Thanks for the beautiful papers in some of my favorite themes, the little extras and the neat joker playing cards (my first all-plastic, and a new design to me). I always am very happy to find something from you in my mailbox!
Response: Phillaine, I'm so happy that you enjoyed the stamped envelope! It was so much fun choosing the stamps to decorate it for you, and getting to use some forest stickers to personalise it ;) Glad you liked the goodies inside, too! You're very welcome, it was my pleasure to put this swap together. What a sweet comment that you're always happy to find something from me in your mailbox! Thanks so much for your lovely words, rating + heart ❤ xo

Thank you for the delightful little bundle of surprises you sent me for the April IFM WTA. I appreciate the time and care you put into choosing things especially for me, and your GORGEOUS mail art is just breathtaking. I very much like everything you sent, and I know just the place for that glittery rainbow uni-kitten: it's the perfect birthday card for my college roommate! It does make me smile and smile. You're such a sweetie--thanks again!
