Favorite Books

I'm a teacher/journalist and mom of two wonderful girls, one 12 years old and the other is 8 . Being a cat person there are also two cats in the house: a regular housecat and a norwegian forest cat.Then there are the five hens and of course, our dog; a cocker spaniel.

I've always loved languages and that's why I chose french at the university, as well as mass communication theory. Since then I've added a master's degree in journalism and a teaching degree.

What do I like...lemme see. I'm an avid role-player along with my husband (two nerds in the family, our poor children!) and usually play once a week or so. Our system is a home-grown space opera :) I do like playing fantasy and vampire too though...happy sigh.

More? Ok. I love travelling, reading (mostly sci-fi and fantasy), cinema and spending time on the Internet doing meaningless but highly entertaining things like babble on Facebook, exchanging jokes, browse on-line shops and see what's out there. I also like writing. I write fantasy (yeah, big surprise there!) and short stories. One day I'm gonna be published...one day....dreamy sigh.

I think that's about it for now.

Favorite Music

Katie Melua, Cesaria Evora, Queen, James Blunt, A-ha, Coldplay, Keane, Lilly Allen, Abba, 80's music.

Favorite Books

Fantasy is what I mostly like. Mercedez Lackey, George R R Martin, Robert Jordan, Laurell K Hamilton, Tolkien, Charlaine Harris, Sherrily Kenyon (what can I say, I'm a sucker for good looking guys, romance and myths all rolled into one!), Kim Harrison, Ilona Andrews.

Also some fine authors such as Alice Sebold and Carlos Ruiz Zafón (Shadow of the Wind, what fantastic work of fiction!).

Favorite Movies

The Scarlett Pimpernell, The Princess Bride, Willow, A Fish Called Wanda, Top Gun.

Favorite Television

Medium, SG series, Firefly, True Blood, Dexter, House, Game of Thrones.

Favorite Crafts

Writing. I have dabbled in other things such as painting but it is not my strong suit although I enjoy it :) Just now discovering ATC! Looks promising :)

Likes

Let's see....what do I like. Hand-drawn/painted cards. Purple, blue, deep red. Not so much into black. Fantastical creatues, magic, fairies. Cats. Travels, languages. Vintage, books, poetry. Action, adventure and romance. Impressionism, Renoir: You were a genius :) Northern lights and starry nights. I'll probably add to this later :)

About Me

Please take note that like others I often use that last available day to finish the things I am sending as the last day to send is usually a Saturday. Here in Iceland, however, there is no mail service on the weekend. So if I put things in the mailbox on that day it will only be taken by the mailman on Monday. My postage date will therefore usually be 2 days after the date given as last day. Sorry!

Dislikes

Having the envelopes simply stamped instead of getting a real postage stamp on them ;)

Comment: This swap was sent 3 days late with no communication. In the future I recommend letting your partners know if you are going to be late, or you risk getting a 3. I am rating a 5 this time because 3 days is not super late and because it does not look like a habit. Thank you for the swap.

Comment: Hello Sigrun, Thank you for your lovely and creative ATC of Victoria that you drew for me for this swap. It is absolutely gorgeous. It will be a special ATC in my Vintage Collection. I appreciate also the information you shared about Victoria in your note. It was information I did not know. Thank you also for the leaves, the paper with blueberry juice mashed in it and the lovely postcard of your home. I would love to visit Iceland. I have a brother-in-law and sister and 2 nephews who have been in your beautiful country. Thank you for your generosity in this swap. Barb sleepingrover2010

Comment: This was my only atc ever from Iceland, though I had to throw everything away due to the red leaves in the envie. So many people are allergic to them here. So sorry, but please don't send these again.

Comment: Thank you for my little pink Snork Maiden - I love the fact that she is hand-drawn. Thanks also for the letter; I like the snow too but we haven't had much this year. In fact, last weekend it was warmer in England than in Greece, and the mild dry winter means now we have a water shortage!

Comment: Thank you for the sweet card ^0^ I like handdrawn stuff a lot! The leaves were a nice extra (I feel like holding a piece of Iceland in my hands) and I tried to read the sheet they were wrapped in... My favourite word was 'kakkalakkarnir' ^0^ Btw, you can still join the Nr. 8 of Moomin swaps here (http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/110912)
