About Me

I love books, they are my one true love. Except, I do cheat on books with gaming - especially Nintendo. I'm a bit of a geek, basically. A good book or a good game with a cup of tea is my idea of heaven. I'm introverted and a bit shy and somewhat of a recluse so it is easier for me to enjoy swaps or pen pals online than it is to actually interact with real human beings in real life. Eeek. ;-) Besides English, I'm also fluent in Polish. I'm a vegan but not the mean, scary kind - I promise! I'll only share the delicious recipes, no whole wheat, bran muffins here. :-D

I would never flake on a swap, I always send, so if the worst happens and you do not receive, I'd be happy to re-send. Please contact me. :-)

Favorite Television

Supernatural, Hannibal, Once Upon A Time (but really only season 1), The Kettering Incident, Fortitude, Doctor Who, Agatha Christie's Hercules Poirot series, Grimm, Torchwood, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Pokemon, (yes, I am an adult), Avatar: The Last Airbender, True Blood, Mr. Robot

Favorite Movies

Labyrinth, Pan's Labyrinth, Enchanted, Beauty and the Beast (both versions), Tangled, Harry Potter (Slytherin!), anything by Studio Ghibli, Addams Family, What We Do In The Shadows, Let the Right One In (Swedish version)

Favorite Crafts

I love to write snail mail and have pen pals. I like to embroider and hand sew. I collage. I like to work with beads - either to make bracelets/necklaces or for embroidery.

In terms of receiving - I love art and poetry, so anything in that category is awesome. Postcards, sharing poems, making poems, making art, interesting magazine cut outs, photographs, etc. Anything creative, interesting, unique to who you are is always special. I love discovering new things through different people. Anything fairytale is lovely too. Also, I love glitter. Like I would marry glitter and have its glitter babies. I also love tea.

Favorite Music

Iron and Wine, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Marylin Manson (yes, I have eclectic tastes), Imagine Dragons, Apocalyptica, The Black Ghosts, Christina Perri, Coldplay, David Bowie, Digital Daggers, Florence and the Machine, Leonard Cohen, Lana Del Ray, Mumford and Sons, OneRepublic, Siouxsie, all the Disney soundtracks ever made

Comment: Absolutely loved the ensemble from the tea packaging to all the extras including that quirky magnet and badge. Thank-you!!
Response: I’m glad you liked everything. I always get nervous when picking out things to send, that they won’t be right for the person. So I’m really glad that worked out!

Comment: Ahhhh...it's a holiday snowflake bomb! LOL! Thank you for the lovely letter & the little card kit. It's so cute. I love the little snowflakes :) I am a wannabe early decorator. I always have good intentions, but I seem to always get snowballed. It's my resolution every year. Thanks for being a great swap partner. I loved everything.
Response: I’m so glad you enjoyed everything! Warmest wishes!

Comment: Thanks for the cards! I love the idea of enclosing a note so that the cards can be reused!
Response: I'm glad you liked them. :-) I read this is how cards are given in India, and I really liked that idea.

Comment: Thank you for your card and your card within the card with the extras! We also put up our tree over the Thanksgiving weekend so I guess we are early birds too (really, it's my husband and daughter. If it was left up to me, it would probably be up closer to Christmas!) How exciting that you lived in the village! I would have loved that! Merry Christmas!
Response: I'm glad you liked it. :-) My family puts up their tree on Christmas Eve! I need like two months with my tree, haha.

Comment: Hi Miss! thanks for your story. It's a little creapy but I understand what you meant hahaha!! It's nice to see different point of view on things: that's one of the reason I started penpaling.
Response: Haha, I'm glad you weren't too scared off by my true love. ;-) I agree, I love to penpal to discover new ideas and people. :-)

Comment: Thanks for the notecard and extra notecard. Good luck with your book and working out. I hate gyms too--they make me feel judged. Good luck to you though.
Response: I hear you on the gyms. I've esp always hated the weight equipment because I also felt judged. It is why I prefer to stay home. Thanks for the luck. :-)

Comment: I'm right there with you! I really want to work on gaining more strength and muscle.What's the book about? How awesome that must be! Keep going!!! You got this!
Response: Thanks for the encouragement! It's very appreciated. The book sort of crosses boundaries in the sense that it can be read as fiction (or non-fiction, depending), as both story and/or a spiritual, new age, self-help type of thing. It is very fluid in that sense, and hopefully this will come across in the work. Right now, it's a bit of a hot mess! Good luck with your strength training! It is hard to stay motivated during the holiday season, but we can do it. :-)

Comment: I hate to say it, but at times lots of alcohol during the holidays doesn't hurt! :) I too noticed that my tolerance for drinking is WAY lower when I eat mostly vegan/vegetarian. I was reading that book too - "How Not to Die" - very good! I have to finish it!
Response: Dr. Gregor has ruined eating for me, haha. Especially with his mini youtube videos where he talks about the evils of arsenic levels in rice and too high salt content in kimchi (my two loves - rice and kimchi). At least he's OK with red wine. ;-)

Comment: Thank you for the lovely extras! But most of all I like the bookmarks! I love your use of black and white. Just one thing - your letter seems to have gotten wet on the way, the pen bled and I couldn't read most of it. But thank you anyway!
Response: Oh no! I'm sorry my letter got wet. I should have put it in a plastic sleeve. I'm glad everything else made it through OK. I mainly wrote a list of book recommendations for use with the bookmarks. I am glad you liked them, I was worried they might be a bit too weird in shape. :-)

Comment: The cards are beautiful!. I think I want to come to your house for Christmas. Your traditions are what Christmas is all about, family and time together. I really enjoyed your letter, thank you so much.
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. :-) If we lived closer, you'd totally be welcome for Christmas!
