About Me

Please note:
I click "sent" as soon as I put the swap in the outgoing postbox. It might be processed a day later by the post office, so the frank might show a different date than shown in the swap. Please note that this is nothing I can influence in any way.
Another reason for a different date can be that we are sb-time + 9h over here, so it might already be the next day here anyway.

Also, I always send my swaps on time. I only join (as many) swaps I can manage to send. If by any chance I'm late I would warn you ahead of the deadline. But usually I'm one of the first to send out a swap, with few exceptions.
So if you didn't receive what I sent you, please contact me. I'll be happy to resend. That hasn't been necessary until now.
And last but not least: I rate as soon as I have opened and looked at/read the swap. If you think I should have received something but you didn't get a rating, please contact me.
I always take a photo of what I send and one of the stamped envelope with the address. So if there is an issue, we can check what the problem was.


My friends call me Stachel, I'm 30yo. I've studied filmdirecting and apart from films I love letter-writing, dogs (especially Akita Inus), books (writing and reading), friends, music (as much as film actually), dancing, making lists and writing in general. My daily life is mainly about my family (husband, son and dog) and doing creative things. We're outside a lot because we're nature-lovers. Also I'm always looking for new experiences and ideas. I'm quite excited about this swapping - this is completely new to me, although I have always had pen pals since I was 12yo and I did a lot of postcard-swapping via another website.

Favorite Music

I love many kinds of music. For example I listen to different styles of rock and metal music but also appreciate the singer songwriter solo artist with a piano. Something special I enjoy very much is original motion picture soundtracks and movie trailer music, orchestral mostly.
What I don't listen to is jazz, rap and country music.

Favorite Books

I grew up with the Harry Potter series and have never found just anything quite like it :-D

Other than that I read some of Trudi Canavan's works and some German writers like Kerstin Gier. Anything fantasy that is not medieval/war/kingdom/... is fine actually.
Oh, and if there are any dragons in there, they have to be either good creatures or just a natural wild animal, nothing ferocious or bad to the bone(!!)

I also like some non-fictional stuff, like about psychological topics, dogs and the way to happiness kind of content.

Favorite Movies

I love children's movies and realistic movies, also sad endings. And my 3rd favourite is fantasy movies, that are placed in our real world (like Harry Potter eg). And I like thrillers, if possible with a psychological aspect.
There's one movie I love in particular that doesn't match the description: Cloud Atlas

And just like with books:
If there are any dragons in there, they have to be either good creatures or just a natural wild animal, nothing ferocious or bad to the bone(!!)

I don't like any horror or splatter, anything designed to shock and disgust only. And I don't enjoy any action movie with less of a story than a short film.

Favorite Television

Just some series I liked:
Stargate SG1,
Golden Girls,
The Last Airbender,
Murder, She Wrote,
Columbo,
Catweazle,
Game of Thrones,
Atypical,
Anne with an E,
etc.

Aaaaand again:
If there are any dragons in there, they have to be either good creatures or just a natural wild animal, nothing ferocious or bad to the bone(!!)

Stuff I collect and use

I have quite a big collection of Washi Tape, and I can't walk past any Washi Tape in shops. My favourites are painting-like designed tapes with a nature-, deepspace- or multi-coloured theme. But actually I like most of them. The only styles I don't like are uni-colour (except the glittering ones, they're fine), simple geometric shapes or anything pink.

Also I love stationery with matching envelopes. I prefer those with atmospheric nature sights like foggy fields, bridge somewhere in nowhere on a winter day, etc.

I usually use a pen and inkpot for writing letters, but I also have a stylish quill (with which I suck at writing, haha) :D

Dear swap partner of...

...any swap including tea:
My favourites are a mixture with green tea, white tea (plain or mixed), mild fruity teas (not too sweet and not too sour) and also mild herbal teas. I don't care much for black tea or ginger and turmeric. But I will gladly try and taste any tea you feel like sharing with me; that is what swapping is all about, after all 🤗

..."Secret Santa light 2020 (Flat Mail)":
I don't consume any alcohol and I am allergic to any kind of nuts. Anything else is fine. Thank you. :-)

..."Secret Santa 2020":
I don't consume any alcohol and I am allergic to any kind of nuts. Please also make sure that when sending self-made cookies for example they haven't been baked at the same time/in the same room with cookies containing nuts. Anything else is fine. Thank you. :-)

Comment: Great list. It's cool. I don't know a lot of German artists. I'm quite limited (I only listen to Rammstein, who is recording their new album in my area right now).my little cousin is learning german and he also sings non stop "the schnapi"
Response: Thank you for the rating and heart ❤️ I was careful not to put Rammstein in the list, as I believe they're way to well known around the world and thought the point in this was to learn about new artists. 🙃 Oh yes Schnappi! I totally forgot about that one. 😅🐊 I hope you enjoyed listening to the songs 🤗

Comment: Thanks for sharing your list of movies. I also love The calendar girls :) Not to mention, SÃ¥ som i himmelen.I love that movie myself. I haven't watched it since Michael Nyqvist passed away though :( He was my favorite actor.
Response: Thanks for the rating and heart <3 Oh yes, such a shame.. ;-( But I love watching the old movies with dead actors I liked because then I can feel like they're still around. :-)

Comment: Great tv serie. I grew up with "stargate SG1. I am a big fan of geek gatherings, I went to see the stargate convention with Corin Nemec.I couldn't go to the one with Richard Dean Anderson. I am a great fan of "malcolm in the middle", I watch every tv broadcast. i love dewey but i prefer Reese. Little one, I watched "murder she wrote" ("arabesque" in french), I didn't miss an episode
Response: I'm not a big convention fan - too many people.. XD But the one with Richard Dean Anderson would've been great to see. I'm kind of biased against Corin though because he was replacing Daniel. I couldn't really open up to Jonas, even if he was a good man.. It seems we have quite a similar taste in tv series ;-)

Response: Thank you for your rating and heart <3 Yes, I think since Aviator he hasn't done even one bad movie! :-)

Have a great day! Hugs, Diane
