November 2016 - Things start to fall into place. I am in love and he is such a great support and always by my side. He surprises me on daily basis. We have started running together and he introduced me to ice hockey. My kids like him as well. Yay! January 2015 - My life has turned upsidedown of recent and I sometimes loose the overview of the date, coz I can only take one day at a time. I just hope you can bear with me and get in touch with me before you give mne a bad Rating ! Thanks for your understanding !!! I 've moved !!! NEW ADDRESS !!! It is already changed here on swap-bot, so let's swap on :-)

Favorite Crafts

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 ;-)


Reading, dunno how people can live without reading

Soccer, 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.

Card- and board games great and fun way to be with family and friends.I love Carcassonne, Monopoly,..... Just now I got Qwirkle,wonderful !

I am addicted to the audio-books of " Die drei Fragezeichen" (three investigators) ! We have been to their live show 2009 and I love them the more by now ! I grew up listening to the LP's, now CD's and I have given it over to my son !!!!

Comment: Slyvia, Danke fur die nette Leckereien! Ich mag das Tee, die Aufkleber, und die Postkarten! Hallo von der U.S.A.!
