About Me

I`m in my 50s and mom of three adult children.. As a teenager I have had a great number of penpals. During parentship it went lost, because of little sparetime. Now I started again.

It is gorgeous to find wonderful swaps in the mailbox, but I have to say that making swaps is the same important thing for me.

Anyone interested in a one-by-one-swap? I would love swapping and making crafty penpals. If you love this too please send a message.

May I please you

Please do not add my swapbot name to the mailing adress. Thanks!

Comment: Ich habe heute auch Post bekommen! Unsere beiden Karten müssen sich ja auf halber Strecke getroffen haben. :) Danke für das wundersame Wesen! Das helle Brustgefieder sieht fast wie zwei Hasenpfoten aus. Macht das Tier gleich noch einen Tick seltsamer.
