About us

Dear swappers, thanks for visiting our profile!

love

We’re a fresh-married couple who lives under the Switzerland’s border, surrounded by the northern Italian lakes. Our names are Andrea (or Andrew, in English: it turned out to be not-so-easy to understand that I'm a male) and Serena, my wife. We’re both 23. We own a 3 years old lovely cat called Ariel, she’s our little princess and she completes our family. We love our historical city and we enjoy our life here but we also dream to travel more. I’m an assistant machinist employed in a multinational industry and then my wife is a housewife, instead. Actually she’s waiting the calling to start the firefighting academy.

foreveryours

In our spare time we like to find new ideas for decorating our tiny apartment, take a trip anywhere anytime we can, play with our cat, take pictures, writing and drawing, read books, try new foods and restaurants, watch tv shows in bed or movies at cinemas, playing video games, creating new fashion styles, planning and crafting and then, most of all, having cuddles.

Our experience​ here

heart

We’re managing this profile together. We love sending and receiving mail so swapping has became one of our favourite hobbies. Currently we’re interested only into European swaps (regional or private) and have recently made our first step further hosting our ones too.

We firmly believe in this activity as a form of altruism and source of gratification: a small present that comes from the heart can turn the day of each of us. That’s why we always put all our efforts in everything we do. We want you to feel special through something that’s been made (and picked) especially for you.

We always will contact you to clarify any doubt we have before shipping. Relating that, we always send swaps with a value higher than 5€ via registered mail, a bit expensive way which allows you to receive faster your parcel and it's also safer from a possibility of loss.

Thoughts & impressions

thoughs

After gained awareness of that we became really picky when it's up to join a swap; so that's the main reason we rather to host swaps.

We got burned many times while joined a swap in which the host doesn't really care about setting up guidelines and requirements or who doesn't care about correctly vetting the subscribed users... it could be really frustrating, much more being a newbie, if you can't trust neither in the one who's hosting the swap in which you're in who also has the main responsibility to safeguard the swap's course at all its stages! So you know, as anything else in the world, you need to experience that before finally learn how to look for good hosts (and their swaps).

We strongly believe that being a good host is a very great responsibility and also means caring about your work, don't only "write down something and push buttons". We care about keeping our swaps as flaker-free as possible so everyone who's going to join them will free safer exactly as we should first. By setting specific parameters and guidelines and also ensuring that all those who joined are respecting them before, we really do our best before assigning the partners.

We can't control what people is going to send but we can control the senders! You also will have all the help you need before and after sending/receiving the parcel so please don't hesitate to ask, whatever doubt you have.

We really wish that this site will be a safer place soon thanks also to these small acts and to all of you beautiful and honest people out there, too. Maybe we're still younger already but we chose to believe in the human race. peace

If you're not going to send handmade items as extras, firstly be sure you're respecting the directions the swap requires. ~~~ Check our DIY project boards (go to the top > see below our Swap-bot ID) for introducing into our likes and get inspired. We tried to pin really many different things for any crafter - practiced or beginner, and for any wallet too. Well, if you're going to pick anyone of them we promise that your efforts will be truly appreciated!

Comment: Oh my goodness it's here and I love my presents. Thank you so much for my gifts. I'm so glad I joined this swap, and have found some new friends. xxx
Response: Oooh yeah finally we're so grateful it found its way to your home! We were so worried about it because we couldn't choose the registered mail this time (REALLY too expensive, literally twice the total swap value due to its weight) but yaaay, we done it anyway! We're so happy you enjoyed your gifts and also that you joined our swap becoming such a great friend! XO

Comment: .today I got your lovely letter which was sent 14.07. Uff.
Response: We're happy you received our letter Anna and we hope you're satisfied with it. However, my wife has already written the re-send letter for you so I guess we'll send it anyway. \\\ **COMMENT ON PREVIOUS RATING** What the hell? I sent your letter on Jul. 14, it's only Aug 1! Plus you haven't even told me about that before leaving this rating! How could I be aware of that?!! I can prove what I've sent to you with pictures and I also can resend but I don't deserve this rating! This is totally unfair. I'm not a flaker and this was also a swap hosted by me, I can't believe what you've done to me: I'm truly disappointed and hurt. We need to talk!
