Hi I am Cassandra. I live in a small town in the middle of Denmark, and have just obtained a master in English and Litterary Science from the local University. I spend most of my time reading, writing and playing various computer games. I live with my husband (from 1st of april 2011) and two beautiful and energetic male cats. We live in an almost shared appartment with our neighbour, who is also our best friend.
I don't have a drivers license as I am scared of driving a car. So I mostly walk and take the bus or train everywhere. I love shopping in second hand stores and making things look like new.
I am fascinated by spirituality and religion, and love learning about what other people believe in. I am a Wiccan, but my interests are also in all the general field of paganism. My field in Paganism includes; Divinition (Tarot, mirrors and fire scrying mostly), fairylore, dragonlore, druididy, shamanism, herbs, candlemagic, folklore, sabbats, meditation, dreams. I also study the paranormal, am very interested in ghosts stories, hautings and so on.
I am an active roleplayer and have been for 15 years. I play both tabletop and LARP and will gladly swap scenarios one on one, if anyone might be interested. I also do the occasional medieval fair and I love everything from that period. I am also in love with steampunky things and the Victorian era.
Lastly let me say that I am really devoted to any project I get into, so instead of giving me a bad rating, please give me a chance to check where your package is. I treasure my good ratings and staying friends with people.
From 2012, I will be attempting to take on an almost vegetarian diet, so if you send me recipies please try to make them meat free!
I try and live a somewhat wastefree life, so I do recycle paper and packaging.
I am a huge reader, I will read almost everything and have recently scored a job at a publishing agency editing books about cooking, bad Crimis and mathematical books for undergraduates.
I am a huge fantasy fan! Love it and wish there where more hours in the day where you could read. Some of my favorite authors include:
Neil Gaiman, Tamora Pierce, Ken Follett, Garth Nix, Lynn Flewelling, Oscar Wilde, Jane Austen, George R.R Martin, H.P Lovecraft and the danish writer Dennis JÃ¼rgersen.
Of pagan books, I will vouch for Scott Cunningham and Cassandra Eason any day.
I could do a pretty long list here, as I like all kinds of music, techno being maybe the only exception. I love musicals, even the really weird ones as Doctor Horribles Sing-a-long blog, I like classical music, general pop music, soft rock and folk.
Painting, sewing, designing, redesigning secondhand stuff, costumizing, medieval craft, writing, ATCs!
Cats!!, my totem is a cat! owls, ravens, crows, bears, butterflies, fairies, dragons.
Colors: Purple, Blue and Green. I am not a big fan of yellow or red, but don't let that stop you.
Other stuff I like: The moon, nightmare before christmas, nature, bonfires, halloween or any chance for a dress-up, stars, mirrors, fairies, elfs and general fantasy creatures, the forest, the night, autumn, candle light, gypsies and old scrying tradtions, fairytales, things that tend to be a bit macabre or ghosty (would love to do a local ghost-story swap sometime), small bits of fur and skin, Tim Burton, Neil Gaiman weird universe things, Amanda Price, online series as the guild and dr. Horribles sing along blog, British comedy (Love love love Ricky Gervais)
Would like to recieve: - Stuff for crafts: vintage ribbons, boxes, fabric, yarn, small metal thingys, stones, pearls, buttons.
Special breakfast cereal (not containing honny)
Pop Tarts ( Love them, but they are so expensive over here)
Interesting mineral water with taste.
Cake-mix for muffins, pancakes or cheesecake.
I am in love with anything mexican so refried beans, salsa and speciel spicies, would be loved to bits!
General exciting candy, but no dark chocolate as I am allergic to anything with +40% cocoa.
Posters with pagan imagery
Pagan statues or figurines
Anything to do with the Indian Pantheon will be most welcomed.
Vintage movie stuff + anything from Nightmare before Christmas, Tim Burton movies in general or Neil Gaiman merchandise.
Handmade BoS pages
Steampunk or Medievel inspired things.
Spellstuff, recipies and ingrediens. Also anything witchy is welcome, either suplies or decoration.
No thank you list: - religious things outside pagan
Anything with dogs, neither postcards, teddybears or anything the like.
Candy containing over 35% cocoa.
Pink or otherwise baby coloured things.
Make-up, I don't use it or intend to start using it.
Overly cute things. This includes Kawaii. I dig skull hello kities and would love to get more, but these are the only ones.
drinks: peppermint tea (recently found out that it disagrees with me) green tea
Things you would throw out yourself, it belongs in your trashcan, not in mine ;)
From 2012 I am attempting to fall back to my original vegetarian diet, so if you send me recipies please make them vegetarian. Not vegan, as we still drink milk, eat cheese etc.
As of now, please don't send me stickers as extras, unless they are profile specific. I have enough stickers to get through several years of swapbot.
BIG NO NO'S: I am allergic to paprika and peas, so if you send me food items, this can not be included.
I have read more than one place that people think a swapper that does not have an equal amount of hearts and 5s is a dodgy swapper. I don't put in extras if I don't feel like it, sometimes when you spend 2-3 hours on making something like an atc, you think that this should be enough. If people don't give me hearts because I don't send them loads of extra things, that is fine. But don't make me out to be a bad swapper because of it!
I always resend! Lately I have had problems with addresses that have not been clear enough and if I get a package back, I will PM you. Posting in Denmark is piss expensive, so I try my best to get it right the first time.
Last but not least. The postoffices in Denmark close at 1 pm on saturdays, so if I don't make it, I will have to wait until monday. I will always PM you if this happens.
I, like many others on this site have a husband. He is a tiny man who wears size S in everything and has a hard time finding stuff he likes. Other than that he likes;
Vegetarian recipies for me to cook (I don't like charcoal or overly spicey food, hence why I cook)
