About Me

Hello! I'm Sabine - a mother of two lively and bubbly boys (4&10) and you can find toy cars, lego parts and train tracks on my home floors. I'm a practical nurse working in homecare taking care of the elderly. I work in shifts and there are days I'd like to crash on the couch when I get home (I do occasional napping) :) Luckily my workplace is within 10minute walking distance and when weather allows, I hop on my bike :)

I enjoy multiple things like exploring flea markets (you can find the strangest of things!), good movies, goodnatured kids (own! They just fight over the smallest of things sometimes! Haha), a good book that swipes you away and with what you realize at 2.30am that you just can't stop reading!

Travelling, seeing new places and meeting people - if only I could do that always! But haven't found the moneytree yet. We do try to travel abroad once a year though :)

I just love, love, love snailmailing and all that comes with it! I'm also active in Postcrossing. You see me often in postcard-swaps due to my 'obsession' over them :) I'm not all that crafty even though I'd love to. Did my share with decos once but seeing all the possibilities these days, I find myself googling what is what.. I love lettering and calligraphic styles. Mail art is something I find myself looking up on Pinterest. I love my mail with real stamps - the more the merrier

Favorite Books

I'm reading too little these days, I just can't find enough time but the last book i read was Harry Potter and the cursed child, Lord of the Rings is amazing and then i enjoy Robin Cook's books and I'm a big fan of Torey Hayden's books as well.

Favorite Movies

Romance, comedy and action - separately or all together. Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts - just to name two actors whose movies I truly enjoy. There are only a few movies I can say I could watch over and over again.. Pretty Woman definitely is one. Die Hard movies are my favorite "Christmas" movies!

Favorite Television

I get hooked over tv shows and I can easily snitch an hour from my sleep to watch an episode of whatever I am looking at the time. I thought I'd never get Netflix.. I was wrong. I loved Friends, Bones, Prison Break.. now I'm all over Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow and Elementary :)

Favorite Crafts

When i have time, i make my own Christmas cards. I do an occasional flipbook with various goodies inside and decorate my envelopes. I did buy a punch board for making my own envelopes and I love to make address labels.

Favorite postcards

I'm a BIG fan of postcards!

I always check everyone's profiles for likes/preferences (even though it would be sender's choice!). I always try to find the right card among that, if it just is possible. I appreciate if you read mine, I basically have just a few no-no's and a huuuuge list of likes. I never send unwanted leftovers to anyone, even if it'd be Sender's choice - I'm sure you wouldn't appreciate getting them either, right? :)

Which kind do I like then? All kinds actually, sure I've got my favorites, but as long as YOU find the card beautiful or interesting - then there's a meaning for it! Here goes a few ideas..

  • Mapcards, of your surroundings/country/ USstates

  • Scenery. Cards of your surroundings/country are always fascinating, as that way I get a glance at your life.

PLEASE I prefer you wouldn't send touristic cards BLANK (I really prefer them Only written & stamped and preferably Only from origin/region. Thank You!

  • Lighthouses / bridges / castles / windmills / gardens

  • Rain, fog, wind, thunder, natural phenomenons of your area

  • Mailboxes

  • Unesco

  • Folklore tales& stories, urban legends, ghost stories

  • Artistic (fairytales, stories, modern, illustrated)

  • Colorful, shaped, untypical, zany

  • Black & white

  • GF (Greetings from..) - Official or unofficial, as far as it comes from the origin! So far I have: France, Belgium, Lithuania, Thailand, Taiwan, UK, USA, Jordan, Germany and Bulgaria

  • Holiday related; Christmas cards in December, Easter cards around Easter etc, Birthday cards welcome too.

All in all, I'm happy with all - every single card makes me happy, just surprise me! But keep the erotic/nudistic or religious cards for someone who collects them. Selfmade cards ok if made well and with thought.


Other things that I like

  • washi
  • clear stamps
  • greeting cards/ note cards
  • stickers (good quality please!)
  • self made address labels
  • self made envelopes
  • stationery/ writing paper
  • flavored tea (black/green)
  • Something your area is known of


I don't really care for Disney (or such), manga, reward/teacher/Action hero stickers or confetti/Glitter. Torn or bent postcards or cigarrette smell in goods. I'm not the greatest fan of basic "box-shaped" stickers (I prefer shaped for some reason) but surely I act like an adult if I get some ;).
