My name is Tamara, I'm 23 years old and grew up in Austria, but now I have moved to Germany to study Marketing. I like swaps with handmade things best and I will always give my best when creating something for you. Here are some of the things that I like.
I really enjoy drawing, especially characters. I mostly recreate character out of movies or books, but right now I'm also working on my first original character! If you like to draw too, I'd love to see your art and find out about different styles. And I also love mailart! Receiving decorated envelopes makes me super happy, so if you'd like to put a bit of effort into your envelopes, I'll appreciate that for sure!
I love to write which is why I started my own blog. I own an old typewriter and I'm in love with it. And, of course, I love writing and reading letters, so if you want to include a little note about yourself or even a longer letter (even if it's not necessary for the particular swap) you can be sure that I'm happy to read it.
I like little DIY projects and one of my favourite things in the world is making and wrapping little gifts for people. I also like knitting and my best piece of knitting is probably my scarf that looks like a raccoon. I love to recycle because I think that we are producing enough waste already and if everybody did a little bit of recycling, even that would help the environment. So I like to recycle paper from paper bags that you get for free when you go shopping for clothes and turn them into envelopes. I also try to reuse all the plastic bags that I get. If you send me for example a pretty envelope that is decorated with pretty stickers or washi tape, I will take those off and reuse them in another swap or my bullet journal.
I keep a bullet journal and I really like creating and decorating my pages and trying out new spreads and designs. A lot of the washi tape and stickers that I receive go into this journal and I'm always looking for more stuff I can decorate it with.
I read a lot and I'm an absolute Harry Potter fan. But I really read all kinds of stuff, recently I read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and Game of Thrones is another of my all-time-favourites. I also like listening to audiobooks. I recently listened to The Boy I Hate by Taylor Sullivan and I'm in love with it!! The only books that I don't like are criminal stories and horror stories, because then I'll be scared for the next few weeks ;).
I like a lot of movies, except scary ones and I really love Disney movies. But in general, I don't watch so many movies and almost no series. I just prefer to do other things.
I love cacti and succulents, because they look pretty and are easy to grow, but even those I sometimes manage to kill haha.
I really love everything that's cute, from cute washi tape and patterned paper to unicorns and fluffy baby animals. And I love dragons, by the way. They are the one thing I'm sad don't exist in reality. Well, not really, but sometimes I imagine it would be sooo cool to have a dragon ;).
If you're wondering, I generally like every colour, but I especially enjoy pastel and metallic colours.
I'd love to receive washi tape samples because I'm quite addicted to washi tape. I'd especially love to get washi tape that I can use in my Bullet Journal (ones with numbers or the days of the week or something like that) and cute animal washi tape.
I like little cards, project life cards, cut outs and stickers because I can decorate my Bullet Journal with them, so I'd be happy to receive those.
Also, I love everything Harry Potter themed.
Other random things that I like: stickers, pens, enamel pins, pretty postage stamps, journaling prompts, patterned paper, die cuts, tea, hot chocolate, art that you created.
But generally, I'm not that picky, I just wanted to include some things that I'd love. I'm sure I'll like everything you send me, especially if it's hand-made, so don't worry too much about it :).
