My interpal profile
Hi everybody! I'm SalomÃ© 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. Iâ€™m living in a small town in the country which is great as I hate big cities. Iâ€™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...
Iâ€™m a lot into art journalling and ATC but Iâ€™m still a beginner. Itâ€™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 doesnâ€™t help because although art journalling is supposed to be relaxing, Iâ€™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. Iâ€™m a stamp addict ! I like working on textures with modeling paste, gel medium or creating fun effect with anything I find at home...
Art journalling, ATC, scrapbooking, coloring (art therapy), cross stitch and small sewing work, sometimes making cards.
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
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.
