About Me

Cécile • non binary • they/them

If you live in France, I have a group for domestic mail : En France Uniquement, please join us :)

I am also on Postcrossing and r/RAoC because I love snail mails. I love stuffing my mails with whatever I can find that matches the person's interests :) From France, I can send up to 20g and then it's up to 100g for double the price, so I try to stick to the 20g limit ! When I send naked in a clear plastic envelope, I often go to the clerk's office and ask for a handcancel :)

I live close to the sea in France. I am vegan. I live with my partner, our cats, Perceval and Lancelot and our dog, Merlin.

I enjoy reading, doing embroidery, cooking and baking vegan food.

Favorite Books

I am a big fan of Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, books from Robin Hobb and fantasy in general. I don't like manga, except Sailor Moon (favourites : Mars ♥, Uranus, Neptune, Saturn, and Luna !).

Favorite Crafts

I make ATCs and cards. I like collage and watercolour style, I do both and I know sometimes it takes longer to create collage cards/ATCs than paint. I try to do very different things to please people so I enjoy receiving ATCs that are related to my favourite themes or aesthetics.

I also love to decorate envelopes !

Favourite Stamps

I collect USED stamps (= I prefer when they have travelled !) :

  • mushrooms
  • birds
  • butterflies
  • sea-life related (fish, lighthouses, sailboats etc)
  • magic (dragons, folklore, HP and more),
  • space
  • (vintage) maps
  • jewels and minerals.

I am also very interested in anything related to US/Canada/UK/Australia/NZ history and landscapes !

I collect maxicards, but not FDC.

Europa stamps 2022

Dear European friends,

I am collecting stamps and this year's Europa stamps have been a wonder to my eyes. I am trying to collect them all, used (not mint) so if your country has one, I'd be extremely happy to get it ! So far, I have :

Austria, Finland (both), Ireland (both), Lithuania (both), Germany, Switzerland (both), the Netherlands (both), Spain, Croatia (both), Russia, Portugal (MISSING THE DEVIL), Cyprus (both), Belarus (both), Vatican (both), Latvia (both), Ukraine (MISSING THE MAN), Poland, Czech Republic, Estonia (both) and France.

Favourite Themes or Aesthetics

My favourite colours are the cold tones : (peacock) blue, (cold) purple, dark green, copper and silver. I also like gold, yellow and orange when they are paired with one of my fave colours.

No to : ❌ kawaii stuff ❌ traditional girly stuff (high heels, lipsticks etc) ❌ religion, religious references

I love :

  • mushrooms / floral
  • postal-themed
  • medieval / Renaissance / Victorian
  • steampunk
  • dark / gothic
  • witches, skulls, dragons, fantasy
  • under the sea
  • space
  • vintage

Favourite Extras


I like

  • pages of books (written and/or illustration), interesting fonts, bonus points if it's not in French or English !
  • music sheet papers
  • stamped images
  • anything Tim Holtz
  • birds ephemera/illustrations

No to : ❌ stickers, ❌ planner stuff, ❌ tags please ! (except for my favourite aesthetics/books/themes etc)


See my fave to collect !


I prefer black tea over green or herbal, but I prefer most of all the "liquid dessert" flavours (vanilla for instance). I don't like red fruit teas or flower tea. No honey please as it isn't vegan :)

Favourite Cards

I prefer :

  • simple postcard (rather than notecard)
  • personalised (if you can write something on the back of the card, and not just your name/date etc)
  • standard size (it's easier to store !), roughly the same size as a printed photo 10x15cm / 4x6 inches
  • good quality print (I don't like zazzle for instance)
  • illustrations (I collect : https://eu.zonerama.com/DPClamavi/)
  • an envelope (clear plastic is good if it's "sent naked" requirement but I prefer the stamp cancelled and on the card, not on the plastic sleeve if possible !), if it's cheaper for you naked without anything, go for it !

Comment: Merci de me faire découvrir ta marque de thé préféré, j'ai hâte de les goûter. Connais tu la marque française "So Classy" ils font des packs découverte très sympa si tu veux tester. Bon teatime 🫖
Response: Non je ne connais pas, je vais regarder :) Merci à toi !
Comment: What a fun swap! I enjoyed your ATC and your paper bits! I also loved that your beautiful French postage was not cancelled by the postal system of either country so it is in pristine condition.. It is an interesting design. and your washi tape. Never seen that design. Isn't it wonderful that washi is reusable? Happy swapping!

Comment: Thank you for the pretty notecard which is decorated. Twinings is an excellent brand easily bought in the US. I like English Breakfast tea from Twinings...

Comment: Thank you for the envelope and ATCs! I was a bit confused at first, seeing stamps from "DDR" and "Jugoslavija". :D
Comment: Thank you your wonderful Halloween card. Happy Halloween to you in France.
Comment: Coucou ! Je te confirme donc que ta carte a bien passé 20 jours à se promener quelque part en France avant d’atterrir dans ma boîte aux lettres ce matin ! (Du coup je me demandes d’où tu l’as envoyé ?) Ça valait l’attente cela dit ! Elle est très belle cette petite carte ! (J’adore tes autocollants de pensées olala !) Belle soirée ! :)
Response: Juste de l'autre côté du pays XD merci pour ton retour !
Comment: Cecile, I love the collage postcard that you created! The colors look so pretty together and such a variety of images to discover! The mail machinery had loosened a couple of edges of some parts, but I was able to glue them back down with no problem. And I understand your feeling about not adding a focal point; I struggled with that also. Thank you for such a beautiful creation!! 💗
Response: Ty for your sweet comment ♥
