About Me

Calvin and Hobbes


My name is Lidia and I'm 34 years young, non-human ( ;D). I share my life with three cats (common europeans), a dog (Cocker Spaniel - all of them are males and rescues) and of course, lots of humans... I live in a small city in the north of Spain, already too big for me. I dream about moving to, for example, Alaska or Yukon.

I'm interested in politic themes, community and self-management projects, eco living and I would like to travel much more than I do =/


I arrived to swap-bot looking for pen-pals. I love writing and receiving letters from people with common interests: art, nature, vegan style of life... I'd like to have artists and vegan penfriends all over the world, so, if you too... just write me a message or send me a letter and be sure I'll write you a.s.a.p!

About swapping...

I love handmade items so it'll be a pleasure receiving it specially if it's from recycled materials and made by you. Drawings and paintings are much more than welcome! I'm interested in private swaps so if you think we have something in common and you'd like to swap with me, send me a message =)

I'm a member in the


come and join us for Gender/Anarchy/Fairtrade/Veganism/Feminism/Unconventional Swaps!

I always send my swaps if I'm late I'll contact you, I'll never mark as sent when it's not sent. Please if you do not receive my swap just contact me and I'll re-send as soon as possible.

If you're going to be late just write me a private message. Don't worry about it, I don't mind if you're late. Life changes all the time and maybe you're sick, or tired, or blocked, or lazy, or whatever, we're here to have fun and I'm sure you're not going to flake, just contact me.

About angels: Yes; I also have been falked! But it was a risk I took (we all took) when I started using swap-bot and it's the reason because I do not accept angels =) Angels send something and then they have nothing back, it's not fair either. Nevertheless it would be a pleasure if you want to set a private swap ;)

Please, let me know if you have received my items! If I don't receive your rating, I think you've not received my swap =( And I'm worry and I have to send you a message... well you know... I always rate the same day I receive your swap so, if you see I'm not rating you, send me a private message.

I love and I'd like to swap...

You already know that I lo ve handmade but used items in not bad condition are also welcome =) You can destash with me ^_^ If you need any idea, héroe it goes!

  • I'd love to receive labels with my address
  • Bookmarks (any kind)
  • Ex Libris
  • Seeds (I love growing flowers and all kind of plants!)
  • Dry flowers and leaves picked up by yourself
  • CHOCOLAT and easy dessert recipes

  • Stationery / Notecards / Cards / postcards made by you sp. with recycled materials
  • Store bought postcards (sp. vintage or/and nature/animals related)
  • Mail art

But the most important thing is that I really like surprises, feel free! Although.... Please, remember I'M VEGAN. Avoid sending products made from animals (included milk, honey, gelatine, fur...), tested on animals or showing any animal abuse (included circus with animals or zoos, even in postcards!).


If you also have adopted or plan to adopt a vegan style of life, come and join us! We're waiting for you in the Vegan voices group!

Favourite themes / colors

My favourite themes are:
cats wild animals landscapes lost villages flowers and plants forest autumn literature art Pre-Raphaelite Beatrix Potter folk and primitive looks David McKean vegan and feminist messages adventure typography The Storyteller tv. show (by Jim Hensom) Dr. Who Classic Sherlock Holmes Labyrinths (and the 80's movie with that title! ^_^) Calvin and Hobbes Alaska Antartica North Pole William Morris Mafalda William Blake

I really love all colors so you shouldn't be worry about that but, that's true, my absolute favourite color since I was a child is....


Some songs I can't stop playing those days...

Dropkick Murphys "Rose Tatto"
Interpol "Evil"
Gregory Alan Isakov "Big Black Car"

You should know....

...that I'm 100% ANTI-BULLFIGHTING


Please read more about it (in English, Spanish, French or Dutch)

Two Spanish regions have already baned the bullfights: Catalonia and Guipuzcoa. Please if you travel to Spain do not assist to this cruel show. It's not art or culture, it's just torture.


Comment: Yes, you sent the postcard and added additional ones plus a separately mailed postcard. Thank you for those :) However, your notes inside the envelope and on the mailed postcard admitted that you sent late. The postmark was 31 July 2015. You marked sent on 29 July 2015. The send by date was 24 July. The swap was late.
