About Me

profile-update: July 2018

Faultier

Heya, my name is Moni. Well actually Monika, but since most of the people wrote Monica and all of my friends and family call me Moni anyway, I decided to change it in my address-box too. :-)

I work in a library and enjoy it, although I don't read as much as I used to read. Being together (since February 14th 2006) with the love of my life @LillyLupin formerly DarthD and I'm really happy! :-) We share the same address of course, but it's all sorted out with Rachel Johnson!

We don't have any pets (would love to live with a dog someday!), but our balcony totally belongs to the birds! :D We feed them all year round: blue and great tits, eurasian jays and magpies are visiting the whole day. We love to watch them, when we're sitting in our living-room, or working in the kittchen. :-)

Me in a nutshell: Introvert philanthrop with misanthropic tendencies.

No, thank you!!!

  • war
  • weapons of all kinds
  • please don't send me any paper bits and bops!!! I have so many papers for crafting, I could open a store!
  • no loose memo sheets or sticker flakes!
  • no scrapbooking-supplies too, please!!!
  • no stickers, or notecards (I have more than enough!!!)

I hate tests on animals!!! So I try to avoid those products!

I don't give hearts for extras! I'll give a heart when I feel/see that the swap was made with love! :-)

'Stolen' from my sweetie's @LillyLupin profile:

I don't like scary stuff, so no zombies, evil clowns (or clowns in general actually), horror, splatter or anything else that gives me nightmares

I don't like brutality. Neither in real life nor in fiction. My mind cannot comprehend what people do to each other (or animals) for absurd or no reason! And I find nothing entertaining about it to watch it

---------------------------------------------------------

Communication is the key!!!

If you can't send your swap in time, please tell me! I have no problem with it, as we all have lifes outside swapbot. But before the deadline ends!!!

packages and re-swapping:

I recycle envies. Means, if they are not torn I use them again to protect the environment. You can do this too when you send to me. :-)

I also don't wrap the swaps I send, in nice papers. They may look nice, but I think, this is not necessary. Another way to protect the environment. So you don't have to do that either in the swaps you send me! That doesn't mean, that I don't wrap them up carefully if necessary!

If you don't like/or can't use something I've sent, you can reswap/regift it. I too will give things away, that I can't use or don't need. With that said, I will never claim that I created something, that I didn't!!! When I pass handmade things to someone else, that are not mine, I will say so and I will never send them as a replacement of my part of the swap, but as an extra!

I'll angel all of my swaps I host myself.

I love:

  • Everything Harry Potter, Downton Abbey, Queen Elizabeth II and Queen Victoria.

postcards

I believe some people like them sent naked and some, like me and many others, unwritten in an envie. I will respect and send both ways. I always take a look at my partner's profile or ask and I don't judge anyone about the way she/he likes it. :-)

I'm not into handmade-pcs!

I prefer to get my postcards unwritten in an envie (unless the swap-description says otherwise). Thank you! :-)

The word "gift" means "poison" in the German language.

The word "tag" means "day" in German.

The word "wand" means "wall" in German.

The word "angel" means "fishing rod" in German.

The word "kind" means "child" in German and so means "kinder" = "children".

Comment: Hi Moni! I've never actually read or listened to or even watched lord of the rings. I also love the Harry potter books but I've never heard them as an audiobook. I'm going to check my library right now. Currently I'm listening to Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan, There's also a movie but I'm about to start a speech pathology graduate degree that involves neuroscience so I'm loving it. :) Hope you are well
Response: Stephen Fry is the narrator of the English Harry Potter audiobooks and he reads them very good. Wow, that sounds very interesting! Thank you for the rating, Audrey. :-)

Comment: Thank you Moni for another amazing letter and taking the characters to such interesting places. I often wondered how Lily being the sweet and smart witch she was could have turned her back on her dear friend. And let him be bullied. Thank you so much for the stamps - those are so cool! thank you for so much - Perry loved the post cards!!!! thank you, darla
Response: Thank you for being such an inspirational partner, Darla! I had to think a little, until this idea came to my mind. :D Exactly my thoughts about Lily and Severus!!! :-*

Thank you so much for my birthday card and goodies for Make A Wish April (which I saved and opened on my bday, May 5) Bright and happy tulip card and lovely stamps on the envelope! I love the cute mason jar envelope of all the pretty sticker flakes, including lots of bunnies and hedgehogs! Thanks also for the wonderful set of hedgehog mini notes -they are just adorable! What a fun birthday treat!

Thanks for leaving a message on my profile! It sounds like we enjoy a lot of the same things. I'll keep an eye out for the Harry Potter swap. it sounds like a challenge. Have a great week!

Thank you for using a Snoopy stamp on my swap! : D

shirleyinCA on Apr 16, 2018:

Thanks for the lovely tulip birthday card and goodies! Once I saw it was for my birthday, I didn't look through all the treats enclosed - I set it aside for May 5 but I know I will love what you so thoughtfully sent to me!

CrystalZ on Apr 13, 2018:

Thank you the everything you sent for my April wishlist in the Make A Wish! group. I very much appreciate the birthday card and all the stickers. My mom will love the postcard you sent her and I find it hilarious you even had a postcard from my neck of the woods The Sunshine Coast! It is such an obscure little place I would of never thought a postcard from there would have made its way all the way to Germany! Thank you!
