About Me

Hi! I'm Carla from Santiago, Chile...I'm a 34 years old pisces, animal lover, I'm a cat person (probably because I've never had one & I would LOVE to), but I love dogs as well. I like crafts in general (drawing, doing portraits, knitting...) cooking, traveling, learning about new cultures and languages so feel free to include any info about where you live and anything in your language :)

Favorite Books

The Harry Potter books are my favorite ones. I would like to have them in different languages (even if I don't understand :) so if you want to do a private swap with me for an HP book in spanish, english, another book or anything else of the same price, just let me know.

I love the Harry Potter movies.

I also like vampires, werewolves & such, sci-fi & fantasy movies

I don't have any strong dislikes or allergies. If you took the time to pick something nice I will definitely like it :)


Please don't send me anything that contains wood, seeds or honey, as they will be held in customs. The SAG (Agricultural and Livestock Service) is very strict.

I promise to take the time to pick something very nice for you and always send every swap I join. However please remember that things may take longer than expected to get to you, they might get lost or stolen. It usually takes like a month. In any case please send me a message and I will make it right =)

Also mail usually takes anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks to get here. So be patient please, if I haven't rate you, it's because I haven't received it yet.

Have fun!!


I love touristy postcards of any kind!! (single view if possible) landscapes, nature, cityviews, landmark places, arquitecture, traditions, markets, festivals, people, food, beautiful or unique places that are not so touristy...anything!! You can send it written and stamped or blank in an envelope. I'm cool with both.

I love Maxicards too!!

I also like vintage postcards, used or unused!! ..... and seasonal popular in your country (i.e. Halloween, Christmas, New Year, Easter...) wich I can't get here.

But if you want to send me any other kind of postcard, you're welcome! just send it blank in an envelope please, thanks!

birgitph rated for January Free-Form Subject: WATER on Feb 23, 2013
Comment: I came home to a beautifully decorated envelope from Chile today - just looking at that made me happy. And then I opened it to find some absolutely stunning pictures. Just beautiful work! My favorite is the one of the glacier, I think, but I love the glacier lake, too! I recognize the color of the water - we went to a river recently that also was glacier run-off, and it had that same blue-grey color. Thank you so much, you totally made my day!
Response: Hi Birgit! I'm so happy that you liked the photos!!! =D thank you! And the envelope too :) I think those were my favorite too. I had no idea that the grey color of the lake was due to the glacier! It makes sence now though :) I saw your photos too, they're amazing!!! ...Thanks for the rating and the heart :)
Comment: Thank you for amazing postcard! I have a question though... would you consider to be my PC pen-pal? Let me know... :)

Comment: Nice postcard, thank you! Here in Bulgaria we have both snow and sand too. But I live near a mountain and far from the sea so I sent snow postcard to my swap partners. :)
Response: You're welcome! Oh I love snow! Here I live about an hour from both, but the snow it's a little more exclusive, so the beaches are always more popular and you can go all year round :) thanks for the rating!
