📦

NaNoWriMo is taking its toll on my free time but I finally managed to get through rating everything ! If you haven't been rated for something, I probably don't have it yet.


Always on the lookout for private ATCs swaps, and now for zines too !


📧

Please please please communicate with me before rating a 3 or 1. I will always resend if needed.

Be aware that I drop my mail in the nearest mailbox. There is no pickup on the weekend, so the postmark might show a later date than what is marked as the send date on swap-bot.


💯

I try to rate promptly but sometimes work gets in the way. I will always rate though. If you are worried, do not hesitate to contact me about it.

I do not give a heart for extras. I do not send extras for a heart. I do not decorate my envelopes. I want to keep my swaps as light as possible (and as requirements allow) to save on postage.


💌

I strive to be a good host. Helpful advice is always welcome. Thank you to those who have commented and helped me along the way.

I will angel when necessary. All my swaps do mention "If you are interested and available to angel if needed, please let me know." This is meant as a precaution should I be unable to angel due to Real Life happening.

ATCs

  • Mostly hand-drawn
  • Time spent on an ATC : anything between 45 minutes and an hour
  • There are no spoilers on my Instagram account. I only post process and finished product pics after my ATCs are in the hands of partners.
  • I prefer to receive hand-drawn/hand-painted ATCs but welcome everything. I am however not very fond of very bulky ATCs. I stick by the rule "If I can fit it in a sleeve, it's all good".
  • I prefer my ATCs in portrait orientation : 2.5" at the top and 3.5" on the side

Zines

  • Digital and hand-drawn, also writing poetry
  • Available at my Etsy shop as I release them (link up top)

Comment: Great swap! Found poetry is a challenge! I always fear it will only make any sense to me lol. Your cards were wonderful. I had to translate the one but I rather liked that bit of discovery element. Wonderful collage work too. Always great swapping with you Elisabeth <3
Response: I have the very same fear. I even tried to restrict myself to use max. two pages to cut the words from. It was such a puzzle to put something together. Oh, I'm sorry I didn't think to include a translation... =_= Hope we swap again in the future !

Comment: Thank you for the cool atc! I'm not familiar with Harlock but this character design looks very nice, I might check it out sometime. Pirates are definitely interesting!
Response: I used to watch the first series in French as a kid. It's available (at least in US/Canada) on Crunchyroll in the orginal Japanese and it's been very fun to watch it again.

Comment: It's such a pleasure to receive one of your zines ED. Your storytelling skills always impresses. The cat and fish carvings are perfect with the poetry. This zine is a treasure... I also like your custom derakisu note paper and envelope.
Response: Thank you ! I had a lot of fun with this swap. It certainly gave me another hobby. I'm sure I'll be carving more stamps in the future. :)

Comment: This ATC is my new favorite! Magikarp's expression is perfect. I'm imagining that they are all trying to nibble on the lure of a fishing pole.🎣

Thank you for some awesome zeens from Zeen tag!! I love the cat food one especially!

Wanda on Aug 23, 2021:

Elisabeth, thank you so much for the two wonderful zines from the forum tag. I love them! I can see why those two are so popular! Night Magic is sparkling (mysteriously!) with such beautiful (and mysterious!) imagery.❤️ And Shedding Season is so comical. I have imagined the same thing when I brush our dogs and cats. 🐕 😂 🐈‍⬛
