About Me

I'm back, missed the swapping. Many things happened, broke up with my ex, moved across the border. Oh and new job which I started in Jan. So I turned my life around and it's still difficult to adjust. But here I am, 37 now, still German and surrounded by Germans but living in the Alsace, France. Work is in Germany and this is where I post my mail. It's cheaper.

I deleted all about me when I left so this is under construction. But let's see which facts are important to start with.

My cats. Well, they are my babies, the most important part of my life. Lissy, 2, Persian. Linus, 1, a rescue who has some long hair genes as well. Cat hair all over, lol.

Penpalling. Most important hobby. Well, the friendships I have and hold dear.

Medicine. Well, I worked in the medical sector and just switched to software support. But I study to become a Heilpraktiker as we say, it's a kind of alternative healer, lots of possibilities though psychology and psychosomatics/ chronic pain is what I'm really into.

Languages. I looove them. Well, currently I try to study Dutch, also speak Italian and a little French and Spanish.

Others. I love soccer. And traveling. Depends on money of course. Chocolate, really important. Well, now I try to go to the gym and loose weight, but chocolate is still important. Paper crafts. So little time and motivation. But I hope this changes once I'm back on here.


Well....for the beginning I will do some fast and easy swaps and see how it goes. Maybe something crafty.

And postcards.Topics I like:

Landscape, beaches, cities, historical sites



Black and white

Something funny, unusual

I love tea, especially in the colder seasons. Herbal teas (just no plain ones), chai, yogi tea, green tea are always welcome.

I'm addicted to paper. Really, I love making handmade envelopes. And I can never have enough paper, stickers, washi tape. Oh and writing paper. Penpalling is my main passion. So there can never be enough.

Inspirational stuff. Be it quotes, articles etc. To be continued....

Hello! Could you please take a couple of pictures and send them to mgallardo68@gmail.com? I would need to open a claim for the stage of the envelope!! Thank you

Sternenfee on Oct 6, 2017: Thank you for granting me a CPG September wish. Unfortunately the envie got wet at some stage so most of the things I can't use anymore :-( (good that it arrived as even the address was difficult to read) not you fault of course, the things were really beautiful that you sent.

for the CPG September wish!

Paige1900 on Sep 17, 2017:

LOL...Thank you for the funny cow postcard and wonderful message for WG Sept wishes. Your life sounds fantastic. I would love to be able to visit France...I would also love to be able to speak a language other than English. I guess I could take a class, although not sure at my age I could pick it up. LOL.

BTW: I also sent you CPG wishes for Sept...hopefully you will receive it soon. I mailed it on 4 Sept.
