My name is Arwen, 32, and from Germany.
I'm mainly on Swap-Bot for swapping ATCs and postcards.
As most of my swap partners are in the US I would just like to reiterate that it can take anything from 5 days to 2 weeks for mail to arrive from Germany (at least that has been my experience in the past). No idea why it can take so long sometimes. But my swaps are ALWAYS sent on time!
Right now I'm really into making digital ATCs which I print out and embellish and gloss and such. My favourite motives to use are vintage or kitsch subjects. Apart from that I usually make ATCs (at least in parts) out of fashion magazines as I like the photography and the sometimes lush colours used in ads. I think that when you look hard enough you can find some great gems in those mags. I also prefer to use those as I find the art and craft suppliers are really exploiting the scrapbookers by having outrageous prices for sometimes such little things (even though they are great of course). However I do invest in the odd little things myself so I'm not pointing fingers. :D
I collect my postcards new/blank/unwritten and store-bought only. I prefer cards that are the size 4x6 inch (10x15 cm) because anything bigger doesn't fit my postcard sleeves and boxes. Themes I like include:
PLEASE DON'T SEND ME ZAZZLE POSTCARDS. I THINK THEIR QUALITY IS VERY DISAPPOINTING.
Stigmata, Pulp Fiction, Heathers, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Leon the Professional, Aliens, Dracula, Office Space, Breakfast Club, Star Wars (only the old ones) and lots more I can't remember right now.
Supernatural (!!!), Doctor Who, Highlander, X-Files, Twin Peaks...
Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Cure, Sisters of Mercy, Massive Attack, U2, Madonna, David Bowie, Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, Muse, Radiohead, Mumsford & Sons, Alice Cooper...
