About Me

Hi everybody!

I'm Caddi, 26 years old and from Germany. I'm studying environmental law and live smack in the middle of Berlin, the capital of Germany, together with my partner and our son (born in 2014).

I love mail (and mail-art), books, sewing, traveling, project life and boardgames.

I started snailmailing when I was in elementary school, my first penpal was my cousin and I wrote letters ever since. I got back into the penpalling world (meaning writing to people I don't know in person as well) in 2011 and love receiving mail from far away. Most of my penpals are around my own age. If you'd like us to write regularly, let me know!

Reading has also been among my favourite pasttimes since elementary school. I can't imagine a life without books and could go through fat books in a day if it weren't for my son, university, housework - you know, the daily obligations :).

I only started sewing recently, but I love it already :) I got my sewing machine a few years ago and it's also great for crafts :)

I love traveling! I would love to see and get to know at least one new country every year - I'm three countries behind currently :( So I need to hit the road!

I also really like to play boardgames, currently I'm playing lot's of Dominion. Awesome game!

I started Project Life when my son was born and I'm already a Core Kit Hoarder... I think I have 8 or 9 core kits by now, so if you're interested in a swap, let me know! I'd love to get some travel related cards so I can finally scrapbook our travels of the past years!

I'd love to get (back) into swapping Friendship Books, if you're interested in a private swap please let me know! I'd also be happy if you'd add one to the regular swap you're sending my way :)

I speak German, English, Spanish and understand most of French, so feel free to use any of these languages :)

Likes

  • Colours - I would say anything that has a colour is great and I really enjoy blue and green.

  • Stamps - I really like stamps with wild animals (also fish and frogs!), lighthouses, landscapes or anything ocean related - turtles, palmtrees, shells - on them, or with a historic meaning. I'm very much a fan of single-coloured stamps (like the older stamps with a portrait of someone). Please always use real stamps on your envelopes - I prefer the lick and stick ones. It would be great if you could try not to cover them up with tape!

  • Project life cards (I currently own the following core kits: Jade, Kraft, Rain, Baby Edition for him, Midnight, Amber, Kiwi, Honey, Seafoam)

  • Stationery - letter sets, letter pads, envelopes (purchased or handmade), masking tape, note cards, post its, stickers, ephemera, scrapbooking style ephemera - anything really!

  • Airmail related stuff - labels, envelopes, rubber stamps etc... I would be very grateful if you could send me a few airmail labels of your country with the swap, they're usually free in the post-offices :)

  • Postcards - colourful touristy postcards (preferably with a single view) are my favourites :) Please stick to postcards from the country you're sending from. Some ideas: I really like lighthouses, pictures of local food or costumes, landscapes, wild animals and natural phenomenas. I'm not fond of cityviews.

If you send me a postcard, please write a few sentences! Tell me about the picture of the postcard, about your day, about the last book you read, something you witnessed that day - anything! Just please write something on the card :)

  • Maps (I love them!!) and sheet music (so pretty!)

  • Washi Tape - I mean - who doesn't?

  • Magnets - touristy or funny ones - we have loads of postcards and magnets on our fridge :)

Dislikes

I'm very easy to please and think that anything personal sent through the mail is wonderful, but of course there are things I don't get too excited over.

Among these there would be religious things - although if it's an explanation of something from your religion it might be highly interesting! So I'd say if you don't try to convince me to join your religious group it's fine :) Postcards of churches, mosques, cultural traditions etc are fine of course.

I'm not a fan of creepy stuff.

I rarely wear jewelry or makeup so I'd prefer not to get any - send it to someone who's happy about it :)

I'm not a fan of cigarette smoke / smell. No allergies!

Swaps:

If you haven't gotten my items in a reasonable amount of time, please contact me so we can figure something out! I usually take photos of the envelopes/boxes and contents before I mail them to have proof that I actually completed them.

I mark my swaps as "sent" as soon as they are in the mailbox. However, if that is on a weekend then it might get Monday's stamp, because not all mailboxes are emptied on weekends. The mailbox at my university always gets emptied at 8 a.m., so everything sent out later than that will start its travel the next day. :) Other mailboxes will only get emptied late at night. What I mean to say is that since I usually don't hand in the mail to the post office, I can't really control the day they stamp it. I hope you understand! It's also good to remember that the swap-bot-time is keyed to the USA-time zones.

If you realize you can't meet the swap deadline, let me know before the deadline is over please. I understand life can sometimes delay you from sending for a few days, but you have to let me know, otherwise I will rate a 3.

Have fun swapping!

Hello Caddi! I received the most beautiful envelope in the mail today - I was so surprised and happy to realise it was from you! It genuinely makes me so happy to know you appreciated my swap so much - I am thrilled with the little gifts you sent me (also the leaflet too!) and that you took the trouble to send this to me. It really made my day! BIG thank you, You're wonderful! Livvy xx

Hi Caddi! Greetings from sunny Hawaii! I'm so happy to hear that you received the envelope I sent you for the "Adventures to the Traveling PC" Swap! How's the weather in Germany? Is it getting cold now that winter is nearing? Hopefully one day you'll be able to visit Hawaii! I work at a resort and we get a lot of visitors from Germany- they are always so sweet and friendly!!! Anyways, I hope you have a lovely week! ♥Cindi
