About Me

Sarah - she/they - 29 years old - Austria ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡น/Europe ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ - working in education ๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿซ - living with my husband and one-eyed cat ๐Ÿˆ- autistic, so forgive me if I sometimes come across as a bit blunt, I don't mean it :)


โœ… Animals - especially cats, but also butterflies, corvids, dragonflies, bats... Foxes are cute but not my favourite animal, despite my username! ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿฆ‹

โœ… Cards and postcards that have been written on. I like to get glimpses into people's lives, traditions, countries...

โœ… Anything handmade - you can always send me handmade cards even if it's not explicitly in the swap description! โœ‚๏ธ

โœ… Languages and cards in different languages. I can understand German, English, Italian, Finnish and Spanish, feel free to write to me in any of these languages. ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฒ

โœ… Nature, especially forests, mountains, anything floral โ›ฐ

โœ… I love travelling, so anything travel-related, e.g. tell me what to visit in your area!

โœ… Colours: green, blue, pink, purple

โœ… Glitter unless it's loose and shiny things, holographic paper and stickers, gold foil washi. I'm a magpie!

โœ… Patterns, floral and geometric

โœ… Photography (your own or store bought photography cards)

โœ… Art, especially impressionism and urban sketching, but really anything handmade because I love seeing and learning new styles! ๐ŸŽจ

โœ… Anything "unique", even if weird (think a weird postcard that you are not sure why anyone ever decided it should be printed)

โœ… "Textured" cards that have some 3D or otherwise textured elements!

โœ… Space themed stuff ๐Ÿช

โœ… witchy and "creepy" things (think illustrations of skeletons with flowers, black cats, potions - no gory things) ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ

โœ… cards with feminist/Pride/"stop climate change" slogans and messages on them ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ

Do not send me extras please. I need to get rid of what I have.


โŒ artwork or envelopes with lots of transparent type - it's difficult to recycle

โŒ religious items and cards

โŒ illustrations/photos of babies or children or drawings made by children ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป

โŒ not a big fan of apes, monkeys and horses ๐Ÿ’

โŒ balloons, I have a weird phobia of them ๐ŸŽˆ

โœ๏ธ drawing with ink or watercolour pencils, fineliner doodles, alcohol markers

โœ’๏ธ writing with fountain pens and pretty inks

๐Ÿงต sewing - mainly clothes for myself and friends

Postal Service Info

Please be aware that my mail can be SLOW! Up to 2 weeks in Europe, 2 months (!!) to the US and other parts of the world

Update March 2024: Something very strange has been going on with mail to the US specifically. Mail that I sent in October and November 2023 all seems to arrive at once now in March 2024, like it's been sitting somewhere in a distribution centre all this time. Only to the US though! If you have not received something from this period from me, I hope it will arrive now, but feel free to ask me for a resend!

If you haven't received anything from me 1 month after the sent date (Europe) or 2.5 months after the sent date (outside of Europe), please contact me and I'm happy to resend โณ

I live rurally. The "post office" is just a supermarket, so I can't guarantee it will be stamped and processed the day I drop it off. โŒ›๏ธ

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful bumble bee card and for sharing your weekend with me. Sorry about the travel annoyances getting home from your business trip... that's always stressful and frantic when you miss your connection like that. But glad hub was there to make the rest of the day enjoyable! Your cute little pond! but, oof, the heat. Way too hot for the beginning of april, hope it's cooled down to normal since then. Happy Spring!

Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely postcard! It's so sad to hear that your book file was corrupted! D: That suuuuucks. I don't know if I have as many "unfinished" books so much as "books I am still trying to finish," haha. But I think my biggest book nemesis is/was "Guns, Germs, and Steel." I tried. I tried so hard. But it was a *tome,* and I failed. XD Anyway, thank you for joining my swap, and have an awesome day! <3

Comment: So nice to hear from you again! Wow you do travel a lot for work, that must be fun, especially not the same place all the time. I'm happy that you found some nice clothes and I enjoyed the little updates about the people around you at the cafe, that was fun to read. I just came back from Spain and the weather was perfect :)

LOL, you're a genius. I was wondering how the heck to make ink swabs. A brush makes total sense.... and I don't have a spare one for this purpose. Oy vey. Only makeup brushes in my house... but I'm not risking those, lol. I already get ink stains on my fingertips. I'm going to look super weird with ink stains on my face. Hahahaha... Anyway, cheerios!
