About Me

Hi, please message me if you did not receive my swap before rating, I put in a lot of effort in each one and try and make it personal and I send them out in time. I am happy to resend.

I am happily married with a kid, loves my family, can't wait for baby number two :) I love traveling, crafts, crystals, incense, buddhas, mandalas, postcrossing, penpals, henna, anything bohemian/indian, bellydancing, I collect post cards (any) and stamps from all over the world. I am a typical girly girl and loves any thing fluffly and pretty :)

Life is complicated enough, so I love getting little surprises in the mailbox!

Favorite Books

I read any author from light romantic novels like Marian Keys to fiction like Dan Brown or fantasy worlds like Terry Pratchett and Robert Jordan. I have the Eragon series, Game of Thrones, Borne. I have lots of spiritual books, from reiki energy, crystals, yoga bible, Modern Buddhism, journey of the souls. I don't like western cowboys or horror stories. But I love poetry and William Shakespeare.

Favorite Movies

I love movies and will watch anything depending on my mood on that day. When it's a rainy day, I will happily cuddle up with 3 chick flicks.

My current favorites:


Love Actually

Romeo and Juliet (1994 version)

Borne Series (only 1-3, number 4 sucks)

The Other Woman

Anything Marvel!

The Holiday

Day After Tomorrow

Anything Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore

Favorite Crafts

I am a huge scrapper, but taking a little break since I discovered zen doodling :) I have a visual journal for art journaling, I love collecting postcards and stamps from all over the world, it is so simple yet it makes me so happy! I love beading, making bohemian bracelets. I paint, right now exploring water colors :) I love baking desserts, cookies, cakes, scones for my high tea parties, cup cakes (and making pretty cupcake wrappers), I love anything crafty!

What to send me...

I see allot of profiles saying what they like and dislike and what they prefer you to send them, but I am the opposite, I would love to learn just a little about the person sending me something. What is your current favorite color, favorite quote, write me something funny/sad/happy that recently happened to you, share a recipe that you just love. And regarding sending me things, share something with me that you love, if you love beading, make me a bracelet, if you love zendoodling, draw me something, share you favorite poetry, you don't have to stuff it with fillers, rather share something with me that you love and add a little note so I know what it is.

Comment: Dear Christine, as I've told you in my message, I really did like what you sent me - the 3 is because one of the items was missing. I do thank you for sending the swap out again though, after it got lost the first time. Happy swapping!

Oh My Christine! Please forgive me for the last "comment" meant for another member. I bet you're wondering why I think you need cheering up! I've had a migraine headache all day and make silly mistakes in this state. I hope you can delete it :) I hope you are having a lovely week! Smiles~ Melanie (Profile Deco Comment Swap)
