About Me

Hi everybody! I'm Salomé and I'm into penpalling and swapping for years and I have great fun on swap bot since I joined it, I even met some penpals. I’m living in a small town in the country which is great as I hate big cities. I’m unemployed but doing volunteer work at times in a social/cultural center. I have a boyfriend, no children., 2 bunnies.

About swaps related to penpalling : I'm not looking for new penpals as I already have too many but I like sending letters to unknown people time to time when I have enough time. I have to be honest, I'm quite picky about letter writing: I just hate typed letters, they're very disapointing, for me it's not penpalling and it can't replace the joy to receive an handwriten letter. I'll never join a typed letter swap and if it can be handwritten or typed, if you really want to make me happy, please, make the effort to handwrite it. Or if you really want to type it, just send it to my e-mail address and I'll print it myself. it really won't worth the money to send it as I'll be very dissapointed... Sorry to be rude but it's how I feel about typed letters...

I’m a lot into art journalling and ATC but I’m still a beginner. It’s not really known in France (mostly in the world of scrapbookers) and most of the advices/tutorials/supplies I got are from USA. My favorite artists and inspiration are Dyan reaveley and Dina Wakley. Doing art journalling is a real journey for me, there are moments I feel very happy of what I do and moments I feel very bad, feeling self doubt and without inspiration. My struggling with anxiety doesn’t help because although art journalling is supposed to be relaxing, I’m just unable to create anything when I feel too anxious or under stress.

My favorite media are acrylic paints, gelatos, ink spray and watercolor paints, I have a large collection of markers, roll gel and all kind of pens/markers. I love using stencils and stamps. I’m a stamp addict ! I like working on textures with modeling paste, gel medium or creating fun effect with anything I find at home...

Favorite Crafts

Art journalling, ATC, scrapbooking, coloring (art therapy), cross stitch and small sewing work, sometimes making cards.

Rubber/clear stamps

I'm addicted to them (also stencils) but I have my likes and dislikes about them.

I like: backgrounds and textures, flourishes and arabesques, flowers, butterflies and other insect, leaves and nature in general, animals, vintage, dylusions, Tim Holtz

I don't like: baby/child theme, city and vehicles related, food, too childish or simple images, teddy bears, disney

I'm looking for

BEFORE ALL, PLEASE BE CAREFUL TO MY LIKES/DISLIKES LIST! I'M FED UP WITH RECEIVING THINGS I DON'T HAVE A USE FOR AND I'M NOT INTERESTED IN!!!

About Christmas: my favorite theme for cards or other Christmas things are Santa Clause, reindeers, snowmen, christmas decorations. I don't like too simple/childish images or humoristic theme.

Stencils

Stabilo all pencil black

Some pieces of deli paper and freezer paper

Clear/rubber stamps

Posca/sharpie pens

Sakura souflle pens especially the white (not the glaze and stardust, I already have all of them)

Any other kind of pens (no pencils), glitter pens etc...

Ink pads

Embellishments/ephemera for my art journal or scrapbooking (flower papers of good quality, metal embellishments, ephemera paper)

Inktense blocks

Twinkling H2O

Themes I like: vintage and steampunk

Anything monster high except stickers, I have too many but I like the photocards collection and i'm dreaming of a fountain pen or even simple pen

My favorite colors are fuschia pink and lime green. Then comes purple, blue, yellow

Dislikes

NO STICKERS SHEETS PLEASE, I have too many

NO PIECES OF PAPER OF ANY KIND, NO TAGS etc...

Memo pads or writing paper/sheets

Postcards of any kind

Hair stuffs

Candies/food/drink make up

Nail polish

Jewelry, clothes

Disney princess

Pieces of fabric

I don't especially like earth tone colors and I hate black so please, try to avoid sending those colors (except for vintage and steampunk themed items...)

I'm not keen on red and orange.

Favorite books

I'm a lot into fantasy, especially books for teenagers but lately my favorites are all the Sherlock Holmes stories!

I'm a Lord of the rings fan

Comment: Thank you for the very glittery card! I learned to drive on snow, so it's no big deal for me =) But we haven't had much of it yet. It has been cold, but when nothing falls from the sky, there will be no snow ;P

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

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)
