About Me

Because of the health issues I have with my hand at the moment, I will not join any crafting-swaps for some time!

If you can, please use "real" stamps. I do not collect stamps. But I have a real nice old man living next to me: he takes care of my mail when I'm on vacantion and he takes my mail (the bigger envelope that do not fit in my mailbox) from the mailman when I'm at work. And he really loves stamps, especially international ones, and collects them. So I'm happy when I can give him some stamps that you sent me! It's so nice when I can give him something and make him happy.

I'm a 26 year old girl from Germany that loves movies, crafts and writing all kind of letters and postcards. And I love my pets (rats)!

I'm always interested in private swaps about my interests. I'm very interested in:

  • Pen pals from far away
  • Swapping rat-related things
  • Bigelow "Cinnemon stick" tea!

My Rats











Aren't they cute? ;)

Favorite Music

A lot of different things. Rock, celtic stuff, 60s&70s,... I cannot really say something special. I just love so many different...

Favorite Books

My favorite books are the books written by the German author Walter Moers. They are fantasy-books. But I also read many other different kinds of books! I'm always happy for new suggestions.

Favorite Movies

I love all kinds of movies. My favorite movies are: Matrix and all movies with Robert Downey Jr. in it ;) I have them ALL on bluray or DVD^^ But I also watch all other movies. I never miss a chance to go to the movies. I'm at my local movie theatre once a week or sometimes even more often. If I can choose, I like SciFi, Horror and Thriller the most. But I also really love the creepy Tim-Burton-Movies and I like some animes, but not all...

Favorite Television

Big bang therory, Gilmore Girls, Ally McBeal, Fringe, X-Files, Mad about you and many more. I love American TV shows.

Favorite Crafts

I do knitting and crochet most of the time but I also like painting. I'm doing something all evenings. I love doing those little amigurumi-puppets.

And I started sewing little puppets and animals with fur and felt.

A Super Mario Mushroom Amigurumi



I like my postcards written and naked. No envelope please!

So most of all I'd like cards about:

  • movies
  • music
  • animals (rats!)
  • dragons and fantasy stuff
  • something "geeky"
  • map cards from the US

Things that I do not love:

  • stickers (but it's okay if you send them because the sister of my boyfriend loves them)
  • some special teas (see below)
  • card making supplies (I'm more of a "wool"-worker than a "paper"-worker^^)

Things I love (to receive)

Hot drinks: I like all kinds of tea and I'm always happy if I can try something new and special. I also like coffee and all kinds of hot chocolate ;) Special hot chocolate would be the best! My favorite is black and green and "chai tea".

Teas I love the MOST and love to receive because I cannot buy them here:

  • "Bigelow - CinnamonStick" or
  • "Bigelow - Eggnogg'n"

You make me the happiest human being on earth if you sent me one of these!

Hot Chocolates I love:

  • I'm always looking for "Land O Lakes - Cocoa with Mint"!

I do NOT like:

  • Kukicha(twig tea)
  • All teas with apple
  • Chamomille tea

But I do not have any allergies as far as I know ;)

my wishlist

  • movies
  • Typically american things (I love the USA and american food)
  • American candy
  • crochet and knitting
  • cute japanese stuff
  • Dragons
  • Tattoos
  • Rats
  • something that I would call:"geek-crafting" (always looking for other inspirations)
  • stuff that I can put inside my rat-cages like hammocks, swings or stuff where they can snuggle in. Or "rat-candy" from a different country
  • Earrings
  • Wool for knitting socks
  • tea (see above)
  • postcards(see above)
  • knitted socks and gauntlets
  • super mario and other video games related stuff

rats are strong


If my swap for you does not arrive in a appropriate time, please contact me before giving me a bad raiting! I will re-send another envelope/package/whatever for you when things get lost in the mail. And please tell me if the envelope/package arrives ripped or broken. I always try to send it save and pack it carefully but sometimes the local postal service just handle the envelopes/packages badly. In this case please tell me and if some items get lost or broken I'll re-send them, too.

When receiving swaps, I always wait for about one month until I get a little impatient. I know that mail can be slow some times. I always contact you before giving a bad raiting and give you the chance to resend.

Comment: Oh my goodness, I LOVE my little Yeti!! He is so adorable - he really couldn't be any cuter!! I think he ate some of my yummy German chocolate on the trip over, and it went straight to his hips like it does on me - ha, ha!! And thanks for the warning about the bath stuff - I was ready to pop it in some hot water and drink it (yikes!)... Loved the package, thanks so very much!! รขโ„ขยฅ
Response: If there were less than five bars of chocolate in the envelope, yeah he must have eaten them ... no, just kidding =P I'm glad you like it all. I had much fun making the little guy.

Hi! Popping over from the Read and Comment swap...Anyone who likes the Big Bang Theory is great in my book :) I'm an American living in Germany, so if you ever want to be penpals, let me know! I love to write letters. I collect postcards too, and while I haven't had the desire lately, I crochet and knit when the mood strikes me.

Hope you have a great day!


Traceyk on Jan 12, 2011:

I'm glad you can start each day with your fave tea! :) It makes your day start out right!
