About Me

Hi everybody! It's a joyful, but also busy time of the year. I need some time for myself and for this reason I'm having a little break from Swap bot. But don't worry I won't be far, giving ratings or checking what's new here! I wish everybody a Merry Christmas!

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 37 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.

At this time of the time of the year, I spend more time inside, crafting or reading. Halloween and Christmas helps me a lot to go through those seasons I really hate because of the bad weather, the cold, short days and nature going to sleep . I’m a Spring /Summer girl !

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 and 2 angora hamsters : the mum Daenerys and Leonardo her son who were born here on the 13th February.

I'm looking for

I’m strict about what I’m looking for. I always send beautiful things and I think it’s not hard. I don’t want ugly pieces of papers from your stash or things you received and didn’t like. 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). NO SIMPLE FLAT STICKERS, EVEN JUST FOR A GIFT, I HAVE TOO MANY OF THEM !

For Christmas swaps : same crafts supplies than above but with christmas theme. My favorite christmas images/characters for cards or embellishments : Santa Clause, reindeers, Christmas tree but please avoid too childish designs. You can send me die cuts from your Christmas dies or stamped labels, tags even if they're not Christmas related but stamped in RED or DARK GREEN only. Favorite christmas colors : red and dark green, white. No angels or religious themes. NO STICKERS of any kind (I have too many and don't want more).

Entire washi tapes rolls rather than samples. Preferably with motives on them (flowers, animals etc…) but patterns are ok too but not too childish motives, kawaii is ok. No black I hate this color and dislike dark shades of colors. Favourite colors: pink, lime green, purple. I also like blue, yellow. Please no plain washi tapes without motives or patterns, they're boring.

Clear stamps and stencils

Anything with fairies and other magic creatures.

Anything with hamsters, including photos of yours if you have.

Touristy brochures and leaflets.

Touristy postcards : cities and landscapes. No museums or pieces of art.

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


Colors I hate: black, red,orange, all dark shades of colors. Please, try to avoid sending me those colors as I don't use them and don't like them (black and orange for halloween is ok and red for Christmas)


Drinks and food

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

Nothing religious.

Comment: Salomé, I loved your letter very much. Reading it filled me with a kind of happiness from childhood. It's very interesting to learn about Halloween traditions (or there lack of) in your country and town. I think it's quite magical you have a life partner that loves to dress up and celebratewith you. The photos of your costumes are awesome! I love that your cat dresses up as well, it's very cute! I hope you get to have a great Halloween this year and that it isn't too cold. We usually get snow in October here. Thank you very much for the goodies as well!
Response: I'm so happy my letter filled you with so much joy! Your words are really heartwarming to read! Thanks a lot!
Comment: Got your card and letter today. Thank you for a wonderful experience. EDITED: forgot to give you a heart! Gave you one just now.
Response: Thanks a lot for the heart, I'm happy you loved everything!!

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
