About Me

I'm Salomé and I'm into penpalling and swapping for years. I’m a very sensible and daydreaming girl, suffering from anxiety and high nervoussness. I’m 38 but I feel more like a teenager, I can have difficulties to control my emotions, I can feel sad or excited for little things and I have a rich inner world ! My main passions are craft and being outside in nature when the weather is good enough and nature beautiful (Spring, Summer). I love art journalling, scrapbooking or making cards, ATC anything as long as I can use ink sprays, inks, pigment powders (brushos, magicals by lindy's stamp gang), stamps and stencils. I also like writing diaries or journal photos, making photo albums of my summer adventures, penpalling, swapping, making penpal flipbooks.

I live in a lovely little town in the country, in a house with a nice garden with my boyfriend. We have 2 cats : Pichu and Dana, a tamed cockatiel bird : Enya, a angora hamsters Leonardo and 8 chickens.

I like/don't like

NOTHING FROM "ACTION" STORES PLEASE. I already shop there and don't want to receive stuffs and cards I already have...

I love receiving photos, seeing a bit of people's life through photos. If you want to send me a little plus and make me happy, simply send me a photo, even if printed only on regular printer paper. I also like instax photos. I'd be so happy to see where you live, your pets, your garden, yourself or your family if you're ok. I prefer receiving photos rather than anything else.

I like beautiful embellishments flat or 3D, tags, paper sheets, paper/tissue flowers, enamel dots (in my favorite colors…), die cuts (including those made by yourself with your cutting machine), washi tapes. Themes I like : nature (flowers, plants, animals, instects), KAWAI, girly, fantastic, mystical creatures (fairies etc…), pets (especially cats, hamsters but also rabbits and guinea pigs). My general taste for craft supplies is for bright colors, my favorite colors are pink and lime green. Then comes light blue, purple, yellow.

Touristy brochures and leaflet, touristy postcards : cities and landscapes. No museums or pieces of art, souvenirs from your country or a country you visited (keychains, magnets, pens etc...). I especially like those with a photo from the country.

Very big dislikes

TYPED LETTERS.

NO TEA, NO COFFEE, NO FOOD!!!

Colors I hate: black, red,orange (except during halloween and christmas), all dark and neutral shades of colors. Please, don’t send me those colors as I don't use them and don't like them.

No sticky notes, small note papers, memo pad sheets.

Simple flat stickers, even as a gift, I don’t want them, I have too many.

Themes I'm not interested in and don’t want: baby, children, too childish images, vehicles, food, wedding, hello kitty.

Nothing religious.

PLEASE, BE CAREFUL AND RESPECT MY DISLIKE LIST, I REGULARLY RECEIVE THINGS I DON’T LIKE AND IT’S FRUSTRATING !

Comment: Your memories made for a great read! I wish I could speak French as well as you speak English. We Americans are poorly language educated. I like your card too. The virus will make for a lonely Christmas this year. My daughter can't come from UK.

Comment: Hi Salome ! I got your Halloween card, Yay! But you didn't sign it. Bummer! But I do love the Owl on the card & I love Owls ! Thank you for wonderful note, telling me how you & boyfriend celebrate Halloween every year to yourselves. I take France doesn't celebrate the holiday? I don't do Journals or paper crafts. Except for an occasional card making, once in a blue moon. Because it just my thing, paper crafts. But I bet your Halloween journal is fantastic! Thank you again for the card.
Response: I'm happy you loved the card! The swap requirements said blank cards, don't write in them. Halloween is celebrated a little in France but this year with the pandemic and lockdown I have no idea if kids went trick or treating...

Comment: I very much like talkative letters with some truly personal writing which this was. I found the blue/aqua ink difficult and the writing so tiny I wished for a typed message instead.
Response: I'm glad you loved my talkative letter! You're right about the blue pen, it's too light and I hesitated using it. But my writing is the way it is, it's hard to control a writing! :)

Hiya Salomé! Thank you for the lovely surprise letter :D I will definitely be writing back. I'll let you know when the reply is on its way to you :)

Hello, it's me again. I just read your profile more carefully and see that you would like deli and freezer paper. Let me know what else you would like from the USA. Denise

midge on Jul 2, 2015:

Hi Salome, I'm your partner for the June Journal page swap. I live in California, USA. Is there any craft items that you want or need that you cannot find in France? Let me know and I can include it in my letter. Denise (midge)
