Oldie but Goldie ;-) I am already 50 years old (sigh LOL)....fun loving talkative, who doesn't like phone calls n hates cell phones ! Mom to 2 gorgeous Kids (20 & 12 years old), divorced, but truly, madly and deeply in love again! Home is where my heart is :-) Always busy, must keep my hands working, addicted to letters, books, journaling, ebay, crafting and.... swaps !!!!!!!!

I love the idea of re-duce, re-use, re-cycle, re-gift, re-..... ! You can do it for me as I might do it for you !

ANGELS NEEDED: I never got something from cmarois for this swap: http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/67945 Now her profile is deleted :-( Generously angeled by PINKKIAPILA ! Thank you bunches !!

I will never ger back my journal for this swap: http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/68369 and the profile is also deleted :-(

Seems it is more safe to swap in groups... Very sad !!!

I am vegan, so please consider that, if you wanna send edibles.

Favorite Music

Since many years I'm in love with Queen ! - Freddie forever ! Unfortunately I went to my first Queen-concert, after Freddies death. - Paul Rodgers is great. Queen still rocks !!!!!!!!!!

Journals + Journaling I have several journals going on and of recent I fell in love with making them myself. For myself. I just send them out to friends or in swaps before, now I Keep some :-) I love those journals where you stick in the remnants of the day and journal little. I am always open for private Journal swaps !!!

Cards Not very often, but for special occasions !

any kinda "paper works", e.g. Origami, window decos....

And recently I discovered the great fun of making ATC's and inchies as well as Rolos.

If you have any left over pieces of paper, you can always include them in your swaps or letters !!! I am crazy about them ! I am looking for some Chevron patterns, green(with or without patterns), Polka dots, glitter, patterns in General... I love them all ;-)

Hobbies

Soccer/football, my club is FC Cologne,watching is enough stress, lol

Cooking, very creative and relaxing for me, no matter if 5 or 50 people are coming to eat. But I hate to eat alone, very sad. I am on my way to be vegan, very interesting and so delicious !

Comment: Thank you for sharing your facts. It was interesting to read. Have been to Cologne in July and was happy to go there again after a while. But I have to admit that I prefer Düsseldorf ^^
Response: NO WAY !!! Not D'dorf.... Cologne and D'dorf are "enemies", coz both cities believe they are the better one ;-) Why do you prefer D'dorf? Thanks for the rating and the <3!

Greetings. I hope you are well. I have not gotten a response from you for two months now and the messages I've sent you remain unread. I do hope everything is OK. If you feel the need to simply cancel our swap, please just delete it. The last message I received from you said you were moving but I have not received your new address and therefore not mailed the journal for this swap. Please stop moving the due date and just delete the swap. Mayne once things settle down we can try it again. Be well.

I'm sending a letter your way after work today 🐌🌿

Just got your letter, and I'm so excited, and eager to sit down and write back 🥰
