About Me

I'm excited to be back on swap-bot after a bunch of years!

When I turned 40 recently I wasn't able to have a party due to covid-19. Instead I asked people to send me letters, as an alternative way of "meeting" in these crazy times. Of course I wrote back to everyone and I realized how much I've missed writing and receiving letters. So that's one of the reasons I'm back here.

I used to be in mostly tea swaps when I was an avid swapper more than ten (!) years ago. So far, this time, I've just signed up for a pen pal swap, but we'll see how this continues...

I am: - vegan - married - a mother of two - a web developer - an aspiring writer - a bookworm - a geocacher - loving the outdoors

Random things I like: Birds. Tea. The color green. Trees. Stickers. Stationery. The ocean. The sky. Washi tape.

TEA

When it comes to tea I prefer "the real stuff" (black, green, oolong, white... anything with actual tea leaves) over herbal, rooibos and infusions without actual tea in them.

I absolutely detest the flavour of hibiscus, so if you could avoid sending teas with hibiscus I would appreciate it. :)

Just wanted to let you know your July Birthday Swap went out this morning. They assured me it would arrive by your birthday. I hope you enjoy your day :) Best of luck on your pregnancy! -Gayle

SwePost is zippy! (What would it be called in Swedish? Royal Mail?)

Your package is the very first thing I've mailed to someone in Sweden; the guys at my Spelbutiken were surprised.

The first swap is up in the Vegans Kick Ass group!

Hello Helena

I just wanted to say thankyou for hosting the swap - flickr mosaic, Just for You.

Such a simple idea, but I've enjoyed myself so much doing it! Already received my first one back (marvelous) and can't wait for the other two.
