Hi swappers !
My name is Delphine, I am a woman of 41.
I live in France, just next to Bordeaux city, with my boyfriend ('old boyfriend' as we know each other for 19 years now !) We are the human friends of 2 cats Confetti and Doowy.
My job is quite time consuming (I work as an export logistics assistant) and I would like to have more time to go around, take more pictures and do some scrapbooking ! I also like home decoration and furniture.
For me, the best in life is to be curious and quite open minded, that is why I love discovering and travelling. Swapping is a good way to discover also.
This is a quote I like :
â€œAbove all, we are coming to understand that the arts incarnate the creativity of a free people. When the creative impulse cannot flourish, when it cannot freely select its methods and objects, when it is deprived of spontaneity, then society severs the root of art.â€ - John F. Kennedy
My favorite hobby is scrapbooking/smashbooking and I really appreciate mail art, it is so fun to be creative !
For my scrapbooking, I like to try to recycle coasters, bottles caps, maps, tiny stuff I can find. The type of paper I prefer is brown kraft paper, decorated or not. I really like mail art too.
I am used to swap with French people and I am interested in swapping with people around the world too. I see that on Swap-Bot many persons have the same kind of thinking as me : it is funny and I like this ! I always take the time to read the different profiles to get interesting information on the person I am swapping with.
I like to swap different kind of things.
I prefer :
- black/dark colored alphabets in cardboard, stickers, plastic, metal...
- Things related to papers : maps, old ads, vintage stickers, various types of tickets...
- air mail items
- travel related items
- letter sets
- washi tape
- cartoons/comics from newspapers
- various small embellishments in metal
The scrapbooking pages I make are usually colored (my favorite colors are turquoise blue, fuschia, metallic grey) but with black letters/typo. I also like black and white pictures.
I do not collect specific postcards but I am keen on receiving mail in general (since I am a kid in fact !) I like photographies nature views, cats (big or small !), white and black pictures.
*** Please, do not send items with babies, Disney or Fantasy. I am not found of things like Hello Kitty or Disney for example, nor religious things.***
I drink tea from time to time (green tea, tea with red berry fruits and rooibos) but please, do not send me any tea bags which are not correctly sealed as I will not use them.
I like to cook, especially chinese dishes with soya sauce+noodles+marinated meat all shaked into a wok pan ! I like to walk in the nature and ride my bike when it is sunny but not too hot. But I also appreciate to walk into cities, just to contemplate what is around me...
I like to listen to various types of music from pop, rock, electro music, except maybe heavy-metal.
I can watch different kind of programs on TV. I like Two and a half men (in France, the translation is My uncle Charly), Friends, nature and home decoration programs. 5 minutes of Nascar race sometimes is fine for me to get the adrenaline rush. I also like romantic comedies. The movie I hate, hate, hate is Project Blairwitch (the atmosphear of I am Legend makes me suffocate also)
Happy to be a part of Swap-Bot and ready to swap with you !
