About Me

UPDATE!!!!! Hello dear friends, I am sorry to leave definitely Swap-Bot, or at least in a long time. There was an unfortunate fact in my family, my dear mother has suffered a stroke and is in hospital in very bad condition. Fortunately is out of danger, but their ability to speak, walk and move have been seriously damaged. I've barely had time to reach the hospital and run to write for your pardon. From now on I will not participate in any swap, I will try by all means send in time those swap that already had assigned partners, but some may arrive a little later, I really will do everything it is in my power to not fail anyone. As you will understand my mother will need a lot of support and I'll be too busy then I will take over the care of her. I really hope that you understand the plight that has been in my family since my father is ill, has severe kidney failure and we are afraid that this new situation can worsen his state because he is in predialysis. I hope to return one day when the situation returns to normal. Thanks to all.

Dislikes

I don't like hello kitty items, I'm tired. Please don't send any mobile keychain. I've grown watching disney movies, but I don't like disney stuff like stationery, stickers, etc... I prefer any other cartoon character, prefer japanese ones.

Love

I like to collect things, Nowadays I'm doing a The little prince books collection in different languages, I've got french, Italian, German and Portuguese ones, and I loved to have in other languages, as English, Russian, etc...

I also collect bookmarks, in many different ways, handmade, reproductions of famous paintings, in several materials, etc....

I am currently loving carving stamps. I've just known what atc cards are, and although I still have not made ‚Äč‚Äčany, I would love to see this kind of art.Love mail art and make mini zines, love all related to journals, zines, mail and stationery and art doing something, jaja!!

I am crazy about stationery in any subject, adress labels, tags, chalkboard ones love, envelopes, notebooks, journals...

I love diy things, and crafts, and I'd love all these kind of materials that are not easy to find here in Spain, as baker's twine, bleach pens, marbles to make magnet marbles, etc...

I'd like postcards too, I love to know how is the place my partner came from, any historical information, where to go, museums, monuments etc...

For many years, I collect such metal cans usually contain tea or biscuits and pincushions too. I am currently obsessed about cupcakes and cake pops.

Lists, I make list of everything, and I love, so notebooks or any place I can write a list it will be wonderful.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, women in arts, since my studies has been about philosophy and literature, I love women literature, I love Virginia Woolf, Terry McMillan, Kate Morton, Agatha Christie... and I would like to know new authors, also love painters, I have such a special relation with Frida Kahlo and her works. Gustav Klimt and the Vienese Secesion members also prerrafaelites. Love any kind of art, collages, black and white photos, quotes in cards. Love knitting, so yarn in any color or knitting or crochet needles will be so good.

Like

I love tea, any kind of tea , fruity, spice, sweet ones... Love also chocolate and coffee, and I love to try different kinds from different places.

My grandparents have a little house in the countryside, we have a garden in which we like to grow different types of organic vegetables and flowers, so I love getting seeds from different plants typical of each country. Love spices, from all over the world, and specially those are hard to find here in my little village, as turmeric, asian spices, mix for baking or seasoning in any way.

About Me

I'm 33 years old. I love swapping things and have friends everywhere. I fulfill every swap I participarte in. If there's any problem with my package, please give me the oportunity to rectify the situation before rating a 3 or 1. I am a newbie to swap-bot, however my first swap was in 2006 and I was given a 3. In that time I was going through a bad time, I have suffered a nervous breakdown, today I am fully recovered. It isn't an excuse, but I guess I didn¬īt understand the rules, and even my english wasn't good enough, anyway. I've rediscovered swapping and I am totally in. I hope, I can do something to rectify and remedy this 3.

I love crafting, makes me feel very good. I try every technique at least once. I like yarn, crochet and sew, because are the first I learned from my mother, who is a true master in the craft. Although I grew up thinking I had no talent in the midst of a family where both my parents and my brother were very good with their hands, I find that I am crazy about Crafts and DIYs, and now I can not live without them. I also like reading, writing, watching movies and series, cooking, baking, making photos and discover new places.

My career is about all type of cultural manifestations, especially arts, crafts and writing. Love languages too, I can read/speak in English, French, Portuguese, and I have begun to learn German. I Love postcards and any kind of stationery, journals, notebooks, handmade paper etc.. I've just discovered ATCs, inchies, homemade cards, art journals and book binding, and I am crazy about it, but but I'm starting, so do not judge my work too harshly, please!! I am totally in upcycle, love to give things new use or find the artistic side in something that could be trash for anybody. Please warned I sometimes reuse or make my own envies, hope you don't mind.

I have no allergies. I am not vegan, but I love to know any kind of vegetarian recipe, because I love vegetables. Love to have molds to bake things or to make some homemade soaps, love little ones, I am particularly crazy about mustache ones right now and letters and numbers, hearts, stars...

Any craft material, specially the ones are very difficult to find in Spain: Baker's twine, bleach pens, any kind of tape, in any color or subjet, washi tape, textile, magnets to do glass marbles, any kind of stationery, any kind of tea, I love teacups, teapots and mugs, chocolate and coffee.

I would like to receive: -Tiny buttons (for dolls) -Craft Supplies: As I am unemployed due to the economic crisis, I can not get much material for crafts, so I'm using things I have at home as newspapers, old books and dictionaries, etc ... Even trying to find the homemade version of some supplies such as gesso, mod podge and some more. So whatever you have in excess or duplicate will be very, very welcome. I would be happy receiving any paint, inks, embossing powder, bone folder, edge distresser, watercolor pencils, foam tape (I can not find in my city), Citrasolve (I've just discovered Transfer with this thing that I can not have here and it is amazing). I don't know, any craft supplies.

I would love to have Kool Aid in each and every one of the flavors / colors, to dye wool.

Swapping

I always send my swaps. So if you don't receive a swap from me, please message me before rating, sometimes spanish post it is very slow, so if you have any problem, please, let me know and if you finally don't receive your package, I will send you again. I always rate your swap when I receive it, so please, do the same. It is extremely difficult for me to receive a package I do not like, so I always start with a 5, and then I give a heart if it is especially amazing. I'm always up for private swaps and penpals! Just message me!!

Welcome to the Goddess Reborn Group. Nice to have an original member joining us. I hope you find many enjoyable swaps with us. Privet message me if you have any questions, concerns or ideas.

luleemik on Jun 24, 2012:

Welcome to the I Love Frida Kahlo group! Stop by our forum and introduce yourself:)

cassiecards on May 8, 2012:

With the last swap I think you should have sent their book home & sent yours out again with this swap. That's what I did. As far as I know, everything got messed up last time and we all sent the books home to start from scratch again. If you need to send mine home, I can drop from the next one & just join the one after that. No biggie. Let me know when you find out :)

cassiecards on May 8, 2012:

If you still have yours, I'm not sure... You should ask the swap Swap Coordinator @Pyxidragon

cassiecards on May 8, 2012:

Thanks for letting me know you have the Recipe book. I don't think your supposed to send it back to me though, unless your not going to participate in the next swap. If you are going to do the next swap, then you would send it to the next partner :) Let me know if it's coming home to me or going somewhere else :)
