About Me

Hi there. My name is Alix Grubel. I live in the capital of Kenya, Nairobi. Nairobi has an amazing climate and weather. It is also currently home to the world's largest in city forest and I take my dog for walks there quite often. He is a miniature schnauzer puppy by the way. I also forgot to mention that the forest called is Karura Forest. I made this account for my teen who loves snail mail. She makes and sends the snail mail, and I supervise. The rest of what she write is her description, not mine.

Swap-Bot allows me to be creative in what I send to my partners. I adore washi tape, stickers, gel pens, scrapbook paper, as well as other craft supplies. I also love the outdoors and I usually get inspiration from the animals and plants outside. Some of the animals I fancy include unicorns, llamas, t-rexes, squirrels, elephants, and dogs. I also love floral anything and cacti. I delight in trying new things and I'm very excited to be part of swap-bot. I hope my swapping partners enjoy what I send them and have fun creating what they send to me.

Favorite Animals

Unicorns, Foxes, T-rexes, Dogs, Squirrels, Llamas, Elephants, Birds, Turtles, Butterflies, Cats, and Penguins

Tea

I love trying new things, including tea! I mostly drink non caffeine type drinks like herbal or fruity teas. But I am not picky and would love to try anything even if it is caffeinated.

Favorite Books

I am a huge reader, and I just love, love, love, getting away from reality and being in another world. (yes, I consider myself a nerd) I honestly can't understand people who don't read! Some of my favorite books are, The Fault in Our Stars, The Michael Vey Series, Wonder, and The Hunger Games. I'm going to stop myself there before I list a million books! I highly recommend the book wonder. It's a kids book but is filled with life and color. I read it all in one day and found it very touching and lovable. Okay, I would love getting your favorite book quote or something similar. Last thing, I read on a kindle so no bookmarks please.

Wishlist

I'm sure I would love everything you send me, but here are some things I adore and that would make my day: Washi tape! Love it, so easy to use, yet so beautiful. Gel pens. The colors can be super fun to mess around with and they will totally spice up every boring note or message I leave for myself or others. Stickers. I think stickers make all the difference. They can spice up just about anything and make everything look so beautiful. Vintage anything. Scrapbook paper. Also, animal, cacti, or floral anything.

Cacti and Succulents

I love, love, love cacti and succulents. I think that they are so beautiful and fun. If you have anything related to them please send them. They will be highly appreciated and will probably get you hearts!

Thank you

Lastly I just want to say, if you are looking at my profile you are most likely going to send something to me and I just want to say thanks a ton! I love getting mail from swap bot and the anticipation of waiting to see what I will get from you guys is to much! THANK YOU!! :)

Comment: Edited April 20: Package finally arrived. Was sent nearly two weeks late with no communication. Thank you for following through, but next time please let your partners know when you are running so late. Thank you. Original rating April 11: Rated "1" because I did not receive anything for this swap. Sent a message, which is still unread. I will change the rating if I receive anything.
Response: Yes, I did send a few days late but definatley not two weeks. The package took so long because this is Kenya we went to the post office to have it sent and they said it was more reliable to use the higher calss mailing system and we diddent use it cause it cost ALOT of money. So the people at the post office waited a week to sent it, to get us back cause they wanted money.

Comment: It would have been so sad not to receive your envelope...Your gifts made me very happy just because it came from so far away and because I could feel a piece of this world. Thank you very much! Maybe we'll meet in another swap !

Comment: When I open the envie it had such a nice smell. The teas will be delightful and the beads will be fun to work with. I liked the stamps too, they are keepers. You did a nice job with your swap. Perhaps we will cross paths in other swaps. I would like to hear about your life in Kenya. My girlfriend just got back from a church mission there and loved it. Cheers Lauri
