About Me

Hello!

I'm Sabrina, I was born and raised in a little village in Southwest Germany, but moved to London, UK over 20 years ago.

I like to travel; a fantastic way to learn about different cultures and customs. I also really like food; cooking but even more so tasting ;) If you have a vegan recipe to share, please do.

I have gotten back into snail mail a few ago, first with Postcrossing. Due to Covid and mostly working from home, I am expanding on sending postcards and simple letters; making envelope art, stamping and simple paper crafts. Most recently, Iโ€™ve started making and swapping ATCs.

Also started to make and use wax seals, which again Iโ€™m happy to send or receive.

I love washi tapes and washi stickers. I'm still experimenting and finding my style, but my inner goth and punk really enjoys things on the alternative spectrum. I favour dark and bold colours over pastels. I particularly dislike pink and baby blue.

Some of my favourite themes: - Gothic - Coffee or tea - Steampunk - Alice in Wonderland - SANTORO GORJUSS - Macabre - Nature - Vintage

Please no animals in captivity, non-vegan foods & recipes, religious, military or sexist.

I subscribe to the โ€˜the simple thingsโ€™ magazine and receive magazines from some organisations Iโ€™m part of, including: The Ramblers, The Vegan Society, The Big Issue, Seasheperd Conservation Society. So food, compassionate and eco-friendly lifestyle, nature and the environment are the main themes.

I love coffee and a day is not off to a good start without my two cups in the morning. โ˜•๏ธ Then I switch to tea, mostly flavoured black, fruit or Rooibos. Not a fan of green tea.

Favorite Crafts

Mostly paper crafts: stamping, stencils, die cuts, wax seals, collage, simple card making, ATC.

I donโ€™t journal, so have no use for bullet planner stickers, planner papers and I donโ€™t know what to do with notepad papers either.

Instead, I love receiving things I can use in making happy mails, postcard and envelope decorations.

Favorite Books

Patricia Cornwell novels

Shantaram by Roberts, Gregory David

Baudolino by Umberto Eco

Currently reading: The book of two ways by Jodi Picoult

Favorite Television

Dislikes

Colours

As mentioned, I'm not a fan of pastels, so please keep for someone who will enjoy and use such coloured items.

Miscellaneous

I have little to no use for journal cards, sticky notes, used stamps.

Comment: Sabrina, WOW! Thank you so much for this beautiful ATC that you made for me! I love everything about it! The colors are beautiful, the way all of the elements work together... its all perfect! The first tattoo that you get is always the scariest LOL! But it is never as bad as you are expecting:) Even though there may be a totally different reason why you haven't yet :D Piercings are a great less permanent option though :) Anyways, thank you so much for everything, I am so excited to add your ATC into my collection! <3
