IMPORTANT (F.Y.I): .

Everyone, I live in northern BRAZIL. That means:

  • I never flake and never will!
  • If it's still too long, tell me! Mail do get lost anywhere in the world.

Smells: vanilla, hibiscus, jasmine, melon, pear, herbal, ocean/marine.

Flavours: vanilla, caramel, chocolate, coffee, cinnamon, honey, green apple, watermelon, melon, mint, pineapple, anis, fruity, coconut, peppermint.

Coffee: Brazil's favorite hot beverage and mine too! I love tasting different blends from overseas!

Colours:: rainbow, acqua, lavender, light red, and light blue.

Tea:: I only really-absolutely-deslike green tea. Prefer mild rather than strong flavors. (like: caramel, rooibos, toffee, herbal, fruity blends, etc).

Food::Healthy snacks, bars, gluten-free, dark chocolate (40-90%cocoa) and also milk chocolate! I love trying foreign candy, but not Hersheys nor peanut/peanut-butter please.

Comment: Lucky me to get your package!!. I opened it and keep saying Wow at the tall beautiful embellished card with the pink roses. I have a friend about to have her 85th b-day and she raises roses. I have searched for weeks for the perfect card and now it arrived from you. It is perfect and so elegant and one of a kind. The small card made me laugh. I'll carry it in my purse this week and show friends and family and to the salon. Enjoyed your letter and cute envie. Beautiful stamps- I want to visit Brazil. Very clever swap card you tucked in. I love it all . Thank You
Response: Tried to send a reply from the tablet but now I see it didnt work, lol. Oh, i'm so happy you liked them! :) I really hope u can manage to visit my country one day, specially the northeast where I live. If you're interest in a private swap, I could design and print some swap-cards for you , just let me know. Hugs and happy holidays! :)

Comment: Your mail makes me so happy!! Thank you so much Adri - everything you sent was wonderful (especially the nail polish!) :D I felt like I had a 'second' Christmas when your parcel arrived! ;) yay! You're such a lovely, kind swapper! Thank you!!!! <3 hugs, Livvy x
Response: Yay!!! I'm so relieved it finally arrived! ♥ Sooo happy you liked the nail polish! I love your parcels too, my mom specially loved the candy canes and I was lucky it arrived on Three Kings Day the last day around here before we put away Christmas decorations, so we had a small celebration and had fun opening a few crackers. Saved the others to next Christmas ♥

Comment: Hi Adriana, Thanks for all the goodies you sent! I love the 3D card (I've always wanted to find a way of making my own 3D artwork like that... it must be possible!). The little stocking is already hung on my tree and I've just eaten the Pick Nick. Hope the crackers arrive by Christmas!
Response: :)) Happy to know it reached you safe and sound! Post these days over here is a bit lazy, but we still have tomorrow to get some mail. Crossing my fingers! ♥
