--- I'm moving! Mail to my PO box will be forwarded. ---
Hallo! I am a 28 year young German girl, living in the USA. I just got married and I am now a housewife until my paperwork is through. So I have a lot of extra time on my hand to craft, swap and write letters :)
I am in love with mail. Letters, postcards, stamps, used and unused, mail art!! my mail lady, mailboxes.... I love it.
I swap for the joy of making others happy and getting mail myself and not for the rating.
If I participate in penpal swaps, I am actually interested in becoming penpals. I write long, personal letters and I would love to hear back from you :)
Though I haven't had very many cases of lost mail, it seems to happen, so please let me know if my swap did not reach you, thank you :)
Also, please be aware, that my P.O. Box is only 3.5 in x 5 in. If you are sending a larger envelope to me, please write "Do Not Bend" on the outside. (Or they will fold it to fit inside the box.) Thank you!!!
I concentrate on making stationary (or embellish stationary I have), mail art and well..it's not good enough to be called mail art yet..I guess. But I love mail art ;)
For my own wedding, I created a everlasting bridal bouquet (not silk flowers..) and my own invitations. I enjoyed that a lot and I would love to do it for living.
I love to get different stamps, I am collecting them :) I like Spring and Fall, I can't stand the heat. I like the South, have not been anywhere else yet. I like the United States in general, I was dreaming about coming here since I was 14 years old. So I like all "red, white and blue" items such as stickers and so on. I like Germany, it's where I was born, where I grew up and where my family lives and where I met my cow-boy-friend ...now husband.
I like all things mail related, everything.
Postcards: I love love love mail related postcards - mailboxes, mail man/woman, stamps, you would make my day!!! I also like country/cowboy and cowgirl themes. I also like touristy postcards from your home or vacation, please tell me about the postcard in a few words.
I had to get my first one to understand, that I don't want ad-cards. I appreciate to read some more on my card than just the name of the swap. ;) I also don't like anything religious related. I don't like Kawaii, at all. Sorry.
Netflix is a very good friend of mine, because I like to watch whole seasons of TV shows. Currently I am not watching anything, but it used to be Gossip Girl (never thought, I would like it, but I do..), Desperate Housewives, Two and a half man, How I met your mother, Weeds, Malcolm in the middle, Dexter, LOST, Walking Dead and of course ARMY WIVES.
I love to read and listen to Audiobooks. Still reading "Black" from Ted Dekker and I cannot tell you whats going on, bc I have no idea, but I am faszinated ;) Still listen to "Under the dome" from Stephen King. (I wonder, why I don't have time to read anymore ;) I am also reading a few German books. It is taking me forever to finish a book, I will concentrate on reading a little more, now that I have time.
Water for Elephants (Awesome movie!) Amélie (Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain), The Blind Side, Inglorious Bastards, Elf!, Up, ....
It is very important to me that you know, exchanging letters is one of my most important hobbies to me. Mail connects people and since I am a foreigner in my own country, it is an important way to stay in touch with family and friends and I have learned it is possible to build friendship through letters, too.
I write long, chatty, personal letters and I trust my penpals.
I also like to decorate my envelopes, you might say it's not mail art, but it's art on my mail and you will never get a white envelope from me. If I join a penpal swap it is because I am actually looking for penpals and I really hope, you are, too.
I will always! reply to my letters. Oh and I am participating in the www.lettermo.com in February, so drop me a line, if you would like to have a piece of mail from me :)
