About Me

2023 September I had an accident with a surgery and then complications that led to me being put under for a while. I'll start contacting the people I owe swaps to now that I am able to again and will start sending / re-sending. I'm sorry, I kept you guys waiting for your swaps, but .. life happened. I'm in the hospital since the beginning of the month and am not able to open my mail. My family is sending out the stuff I finish here for me :).

Mail services information: our mailbox currently gets emptied 1-2 times per week still. But the good news is that I receive mail more than once per week once again :)!

Languages: English, Deutsch, ν•œκ΅­μ–΄

I love love looove playing tabletop rpgs. And board games. And card games. And computer games. And science fiction. And fantasy. And reading. I'm a geek.

I am in my thirties and share my flat with a black cat who is somewhat anti-social. But she's the cutest cat. Like all cats.

I am an avid herbal (+fruity) tea drinker (for tea swaps there's more info below). I do not consume caffeine - even as teas.

I'm a feminist, pansexual, and agnostic.

⟨ Some more stuff I like: ⟩

  • Things with a purpose
  • Things with more than one purpose that can fulfill all their purposes well
  • Good Excel sheets
  • Reading
  • Cats
  • Everything ATC related

➀ Letters & Notes

  • I enjoy reading random tidbits of information. The thing that just pops into your head. "Huh"-moments.
  • Recycled stationery (NOT trash - either stationery made of recycled materials or pages which might have had another purpose once but are beautiful to look at, eg: calendar pages, wrapping paper)
  • handmade cards and notes - I will never downrate for receiving handmade even if the swap says store-bought

➀ Tea

  • fruits and herbs
  • no caffeine [green/black/white..]
  • during the warmer months I drink the leaves from plants I grow on my balcony

➀ Reading

  • Science fiction and fantasy (and romance)
  • I don't like bad endings. I need my endings happy or at least satisfactory. Therefore I tend to read the last few sentences before I read a book.
  • My absolute guilty pleasure books are Nalini Singh's Psy/Changeling/Trinity books.
  • I have phases during which I binge webtoons and/or fanfiction (... DM/HP Auror Partners)

➀ Art

  • Landscapes
  • Flora & fauna
  • Fantasy
  • Art nouveau
  • Colorful portraits
  • Rain
  • Joy > melancholy
  • Weather phenomenon
  • Space phenomena

β‰  I don't want to put down any dislikes - because if it's important to you or you like it then I'd love to learn about it.

⟩⟩ Let's be honest here: my decorating style is more on the minimalistic side - I love washi tape and small drawings, but I'm just not that crafty and only sometimes use accent stickers.


I mend my own clothes (if they're fixable).

I enjoy painting and started making cards and postcards after joining swaps here but my craft level & style is on the more minimalistic side.

I am now apparently addicted to ATCs. Thank you, dear swap-bot community, for bringing this joy into my life! (May 2023 update)

I will not downrate for handcrafted cards / notecards even if the swap specifies store-bought! :)

If you count cooking as a craft then that's my #1. Mostly vegetarian meals. There are some nostalgia dishes that I cook from time to time which I include meat - but only well-sourced meat. I prefer salty foods over sweet foods most of the time. If you have a recipe that you just love - I'd be happy to give it a try!

About my swaps

My personal belief is that everyone who puts time into handcrafting a swap deserves a heart. I love all of you for the effort and time you put in to bring artsy joy into my life!

I check "sent" once I come home after putting the swap into the local mailbox. Please be aware that my mailbox doesn't get emptied daily.

I will rate you as soon as I've received and opened your mail. If there's a problem I'll contact you and try to find a solution before rating a low score.

Please contact me if there is a problem with my swap or you haven't received anything a few weeks after I checked "sent". I'll be happy to send something again if it doesn't arrive or didn't fulfill the requirements.

Comment: Thanks so much. Your 'thrive' section of mcorbus's postcard looks great. I'm particularly intrigued by the liquid pearls ink. If I see it in the craft stores I go to, I'll buy some to try.

Comment: Love the scary face post card!
Comment: Very interesting theme--dividing sections into colours. I like the idea. I also like how you painted your repurposed envelope. ----Regarding the weather here, it's cooled down too. We're in the mid 20s now. It's quite comfortable.
