Updates June 2020:

--Although the postal services have been partially restored, there are still some countries to which we cannot send mail. In case my swap partner is from such a country I will inform her/him immediately. --Friends from Bulgarian postcrossing group share they have returned postcards from USA, Canada and Belarus with note that these countries reject the incoming mail. If you are from these countries and you are waiting to receive something from me, PLEASE give some more time to the postal services. In case the mail will be returned to me, I will let you know and I will resend it ASAP. Thank you!!!

About Me

Hello there! My name is Mariya and I am from Bulgaria. I am a chemist and because of my work I live in the capital – Sofia city. I spend the weekends in my home town – Yablanitsa. It is located in the area of the Pre-Balkan, north of the Stara Planina mountain. Here I have a cute white cat, called Angel and as it is said “The home is where the cat is”, so this is my home :-)

Contact me:

I look forward to swapping and because I am a newbie here, please feel free to contact me with any notes, questions or issues, especially if you think I am doing something wrong.

Keep in mind that sometimes it takes 8 weeks or more the overseas mail to arrive. So, please give the postal system reasonable time to send first, especially during National Holidays, Easter, Xmas, etc., or if you are on the other side of the world from me.

It is also possible the mail to be lost (I have unpleasant experience with postcards – the record is for USA, followed by Netherlands, UK and Russia; doesn’t matter if I send the mail from Bulgaria or Germany). Please let me know if you have not received anything before you rate. I can't be reponsible for items that the post loses, but I WILL RESEND.

My hobbies

  • Crafts – scrapbooking and handmade photo albums, handmade greeting cards, embroidery, sewing (beginner). Craft styles I love are steampunk, vintage, shabby chic, but also like any others. My beloved device is the Big Shot and I possess many cutting dies, but of course – not enough ;-) [Note: cutting-dies-addicted will understand me]. Because I am practicing this hobby more than 8 years, I have plenty of craft supplies. The items I do not use in my handmade-paper-projects are foam shapes or kid crafts.

  • Postcards exchange – I am a member of postcrossing, but I also love to do private postcard swaps. I like almost any kind of postcards, but NOT self-made and free advertising cards! So, if we are participating in postcard swap, please keep these types for somebody else who will appreciate them! I prefer the postcards to be send without envelope, written and stamped. If the swap is for self-made or recycled materials send as postcards - anything is welcome - it's your choice.

Please do not send me:

  • foam shapes or kid crafts;
  • self-made and free advertising cards (in postcard swaps) if they're not require in the swap;
  • coloring pages.

Comment: Mariya, this is such an incredible ATC and package! Did you crochet these flowers????? They are so beautiful. I can't wait to show my daughter who crochets. I love the quote and way you used brads and buttons in the middle of the flowers and the flower you made with the lace. They look so amazing against the weathered background and the antique lace. WOW, so much awesome work! I'm very touched to have this piece of artwork for my own. THANK you for the lovely lace and flowers, too. They will be lovingly used by both my daughter and myself. Bulgaria has the most beautiful stamps as well! Such a special gift, thank you so much! :):):)
Response: It's nice to hear you like the ATC! 😊 Unfortunately I never learned to knit/crochet :( Тhese beautiful flowers are crocheted by our elderly neighbor lady. I love them and often use them in my projects. Thank you so much for the rating and the heart 💚 All the best to you and you daughter!

Comment: Thanks for you obsevations about the books. I feel much as you do about short stories (a forget them almost as soon as I put them down -- love a nice full story ...but no the book you didn't like. I wouldn't like it either.)
Response: It's nice to hear I am not the only one "short-stories-not- lover". Happy reading, happy swapping and take care 😊!

Comment: I'm so glad you've discovered Stephen King! I've been a fan of his for many years and collect his books :) I really love the cover of "Needful Things" in Bulgarian, it's so different from the English language version. Can I recommend "The Stand" and "Cell" when you're looking for more of his books, those are my favourites! :)
Response: I've heard reviews for "Cell" and with your recommendation this book will be among the first on my list "what to read next". Thank you for the recommendation and the heart 🧡!

Thank you so much for the beautiful Stained Glass ATC. It arrived safe and sound and will find a home in my "Favorites" binder.
