. I'm Polish living in Cyprus with my South African partner and our 2 beautiful daughters aged 6 and 4. We love animals and we have 4 dogs and 2 cats, all of them rescued from the streets of our town. I'm new Christian and I'm proud of it! I love food. I love everything about food, cooking, baking, eating... I collect cookbooks and I really love when my friends bring me cookbooks from their holidays. I also bake novelty cakes to order and Im busy opening my own shop :) Christmas is my favourite time of the year, because I'm crazy about gingerbread smell. I just love it!!
I'm not crafty. I love hand made notecards, bookmarks etc. I'm not crazy about handmade postcards though... I love things made from fabric (especially useful ones) like tote bags, aprons, oven mitts etc.
Im crazy about cupcake, cake and sweets patterns!
I try to recycle packaging so please, don't feel offended if you receive recycled envie. I also re-swap thing I don't have use for.
jazz, blues, rock I love Pink Floyd, Sting, India Arie sometimes I relax listening to classical music and opera, I adore Mozart's "Don Giovanni"
I really enjoy gospel music and Christian rock like Skillet, 12 Stone or Red.
I really DON"T LIKE honey flavoured anything. It reminds me of eating or drinking soap, so please, do not send me anything with honey flavour to it (pure, natural honey is ok, though)
please, DO NOT send me crafty stuff unless I ask for it or it's for kids.
I'm easy to please :) - Twinings Voyage tea (all of them) - recipes from your country - TEA (see below) - cocoa mixes, flavoured hot chocolate - it's unavailable in my country :( - flavoured coffee (as above - unavailable in Cyprus ) - coconut flavoured hot beverages - I would love to try flavoured coffee creamer - kool-aid - peanut butter chocolate I love peanut butter, who doesn't? ;0) (reese's is it??) - SOUVENIR FRIDGE MAGNETS - second hand children books in either English or Polish - view postcards - anything with kokeshi dolls on it, they are sooo cute! - anything with cupcakes on it!! - notepads - cute hair bands, clips and any hair accessories - kitchen towels - aprons - or anything from my likes above - Christian themed bookmarks, stationary or jewelery (nickel free, handmade welcome) - tote bags - craft stuff for children - painting brushes (various sizes)
I always send my stuff, no exceptions! But sometimes people don't receive it... The best way to solve it, is to send me an email or PM, so I am aware of any problems and I can re-send it for you. Cyprus post is funny... I received postcard sent from USA quicker than registered letter from capital city sent on the same day...So please, be patient. If by any reason you don't have your stuff after 6 weeks from "sent date", please, let me know!
If I send on Friday, package will leave post office only on Monday. There is no banks, post offices and government on weekends, so please, don't rate me down because of it. I can't change this laws (and believe me, I would if I could).
I never rate 1 & 3 without prior message, so I expect the same from other swappers.
I have 2 great, easy going daughters.
Eva is 6 years old, she loves High School Musical, Monster High, musicals in general and Disney movies. She is dancer doing lots of different kinds of dancing. She absolutely loves animals and nature. And she is crazy about her sister and chocolate ;) She is daddy's little princess.
Maria is 4 y.o .She is in love with her sister. She adores vegetables, bread and rice cakes. She loves playing with dolls, crayons, "sparklies" and water. She loves Minnie Mouse and Hello Kitty and watching Peppa Pig and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. She is very active and doesn't sit still. She is mommy's little angel.
They are both crazy about "Frozen" movie and Minions from "Despicable me"
Wishlist for them: - hair accessories (hairbands, clips, etc.) only new, not used - stamps - stickers - crayons (there is never enough of crayons...) - small and easy craft kits for children - anything to do with dancing - anything with their favourite cartoon characters - socks (EU size 31 and 25) - puzzles and colouring/activity books - glitter pens, glitter glue, glitter - silly bandz - funny band-aids - sparklies (sequins, confetti etc)
I take part in lots of tea swaps. To be honest, I'm real tea addict. I like my tea flavoured, the weirder flavour the better ;) I love Stash teas, I love them all and until now I haven't found one which I didn't like. I also really enjoy Bigelow teas (constant commet is my number 1). I love chai teas and all cinnamon-y, ginger-y and spicy flavours. Until now, Numi Ruby Chai is my number one. I love lemongrass and herbal teas, however I'm not a big fan of hibiscus and fruit teas . Fruit flavoured teas are ok though. I DO NOT LIKE honey flavoured teas or banana flavoured anything (I'm not sure if there is banana tea, but just in case, I probably won't like it) UPDATE: I actually bought by accident banana&toffee tea and it was AMAZING!!
UPDATE: I recently discovered that all Yogi teas give me terrible headache, so please don't send it to me. I really can't drink it...
I do not need anymore mint green tea (a.k.a.moroccan green tea) or jasmine green tea (I think I drank my share in my time;) )
I really enjoy vanilla, nut creme, chocolate, caramel, toffee etc. teas.
I love Pickwick teas.
Please, try not to send me plain green teas.
I also like earl gray, lady gray, irish breakfast tea and black teas with this earthy, almost soil like taste (I received tea from China and I went nuts over it)
tea wishlist (but don't feel obligated, this is just list of teas I really liked and can't buy in my country or would love to try. I love all teas)
I own 4 dogs and 2 cats, so if you are allergic, please let me know, so I can make a plan, so you will be safe. Last thing I want is to make you sick.
I am allergic to nickel, so please, nickel free stuff, otherwise I will scratch myself to death ;)
