Hi swappers !
My name is Delphine, I am a woman of 42.
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, travel, do some more mail art and scrapbooking ! I also like home decoration and vintage furniture.
For me, the best in life is to be curious and open minded, that is why I love discovering and travelling. Swapping is a good way to discover also.
This is a quote I like :
Above 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. - 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 metal embellishments
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 (all organic 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 !
