  • I'm a totally bird fan: i'm learning how to ring and identify them, i'm in love with every bird i see (even though my favourite are european robins, sparrows, peacocks and owls). I collect every thing with birds on it. Really. And my favourite birds are robins, hummingbirds, owls, sparrows...


  • I love mail. I enjoy a lot writing letters, putting together packages, decorating envelopes, creating overloaded pieces of art mail, making/writing postcards, sending/receiving handmade stuff, sharing inspirations, etc.

  • I'm a washi tape (hoarder) collector. I can't help to have a large washi tape wishlist! Actually on the hunt of some washi with stamps on it and other with paperclips! ;D

  • I'm also a paper junkie. I ♥ making collages and i always keep looking for nice patterned paper, retro & vintage images, typography, etc :D

  • I'm just like a gossip raven, amazed by all the glittery & sparkly stuff, no glitter no party hehehe ^,^ Well, i'm a night owl too; i adore the night!

  • Being in an artistic mood helps me to keep my mind in a good health :D


  • I'm a very musical person, i can't live without music. Really; i like to think that music was my first crush, and it will be the last :D~♥

  • I love underwater life and all the mistery lying there. I would love to own a big aquarium.

  • My favourite colors are: Turquoises, teals, blues (indigo, intense sea tones, deep sky), greens (forest, jade, emerald), vibrant purples and magentas. My heart is of the color of a peacock! :D


  • I love to collect (and try!) teas/coffee/cocoas from around the world! Hot drinks makes me smile :)

  • I make Zines! And i just love to read every Zine i can catch :)

  • I LOVE snowflakes and i'll love you forever if you send me something snowflake-ish. I also have a great obsession with snowglobes :D

title title

  • I am a book worm and my idea of a good evening is a sassy cup of coffee or tea, a great book and a rainy day :D My favourite genres are: science-fiction, fiction, fantasy, myths (every culture), classic tales and fairy tales, graphic novels and every kind of poetry. always willing to discover something new!

  • I recently discover i can sew :D So, i am a BIG fabric junkie :D I collect every tiny piece of fabric to make clothes for Mockingjay, my orange haired Blythe :)

  • And i'm an expert creating a world on a blank space. Even sometimes new worlds don't mean a better situation. To change is the key.

  • Anything with apples (i like apples, but lately i got tired of this flavour in a tea).



Important info for you :)

  • If you haven't received a swap from me around 4 weeks after end date, & you plan to rate me a 1 or 3 please contact me BEFORE YOU RATE ME, so we can work something out. Feel free to contact me :D! packages come all the way from Spain and it can take some time sometimes. Thank you!

  • I understand that sometimes life gets in the way and you can't send items on time. All I ask is that you drop me a note to let me know you are running late and that you not mark the items sent until you actually send :).

  • I recycle the envelopes, so if they're not broken I use them again. You can do this too when you send to me, don't worry, i'll be happy ;D Recycling is good for our planet, but if you want a new envelope, please, let me know.

  • I try to always rate my partners. Please do the same if you can :D & Please do not write 'swap' or 'swapbot' or the name of the swap or anything at all web-related, on the outside of your package.

Thank you sooo much for understanding :D



Comment: As always Pat has surprised me with the most astounding swap ever! Who knew there were so many birdy treasures to be found in Spain. She has thought so much about what I would like and will find useful. She has also made the most exquisite brooch for my daughter and a charm for me that brings sparkle and happy smiles to our lives. Thanks Pat for being you and swapping with me

reader44ever rated for WIYM - Penfriend Letter Swap on May 24, 2017
Comment: Thank you for your letter, Pat! I love it! I will reply! I will hope to get a reply written by next week (for mailing no later than Thursday, June 1, but hopefully earlier!). I LOVE to read, and am working on finishing an 18-book series (just three left!) and I've started another - 15-book, I think - series. I need to read Book Two for a swap. So...busy reading! But THANK YOU! I did not mind the pink accents you used. I should update my profile... To say more here would mean I wouldn't need to reply, so I'll just say. . . Thank you!!! :-)

Ola Lilian, I was reading your profile for the "nice to meet you #8" swap. Lipton no longer tests on animals, Unilever stopped that after Peta actions. So that's good news. I didn't even know some tea brands tested on animals. Good to know, I'll keep an eye on brands that still do so I can avoid them. Love your profile, will send you something nice! Marieke

Jess79 on Jul 9, 2014:
