Cara here. Irish girl. Lover of letters & crafts. Maker of things. Drinker of tea. Reader of poetry. Hopelessly in lust with wander.
Hello there, I'm Cara. I'm from Ireland and am currently studying English literature and French. I am a native English and Irish speaker, and am on my way to becoming fluent in French.
I have just started learning Hindi! Anyone who speaks it or is learning too, message me and we can correspond!
I upload pictures of my incoming & outgoing letters / mail art to my instagram account: Carasloveletters. I would love to interact with Swapbotters more on IG, so be sure to contact me there x
I am a lover of every culture, currently using Swapbot to travel the world without leaving my bedroom. I would love to receive tokens from your country which express your culture. Some ideas include:
I also adore maps, bucket lists, ticket stubs, etc.,
I am a self-diagnosed Francophile. I adore everything related to French culture and language, from des croissants to Les Miserables. I would love to receive anything related to
â˜…Aussi, si vous parlez franÃ§ais, Ã©crivez-moi en franÃ§ais. Je ne suis pas encore couramment, mais j'aime Ã penser que je suis proche.â˜…
I am an obsessive reader, and this love manifested itself in the form of an Etsy shop I run independently to put myslef through university. CarasBookishCharms, in which I sell miniature books and quote pendants. It's my ultimate display of craftiness!
I love everything vaguely literary:
My favourite writers include: Oscar Wilde; Anne, Emily and Charlotte Bronte; William Shakespeare; Alfred Lord Tennyson; Pablo Neruda; Jane Austen; F. Scott Fitzgerald; George R. R. Martin; Khaled Hosseini.
Favourite YA authors: John Green; Stephanie Perkins; Rainbow Rowell; Rae Carson; Laini Taylor; Wendy Higgins; Veronica Rossi; Suzanne Collins; Veronica Roth; J.K.Rowling; Neil Gaiman.
I am an aspiring author and have a passion for writing. I genuinely believe there's a novel in me somewhere, I just have to dig it out. What I write varies according to my mood: soaring euphoria usually results in some epic fantasy, and heartbreak (which is frequent) makes for some deeply melancholy poetry.
I love tea in all its many splendid forms. Especially
I love loose tea leaf or bagged.
Everything, everything, everything vintage. Anything reminiscent of another time or place. Real or replica:
I love history, especially Tudor England, the Renaissance, the Borgias, Classical Civilasiations of Ancient Rome and Ancient Egypt.
My greatest dislike is plain envelopes! Draw on them, college them, stamp them, make them ART!
Also, I don't need more art supplies. I would prefer you included some used postage stamps or some vintage tickets than a sheet of stickers.

I love one on one mail art swaps. If you are interested in exchanging some postal beauty with me, please send me a message. We can set up a private swap and spread the mail art love.
It's a pleasure to make your acquiescence!
