About Me

My name is Tamara, I'm 22 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 recently started drawing manga characters, I also do little watercolour illustrations and I like to draw my own stickers. What I like about manga drawings is just that I think the characters are very pretty, even though I don't usually read mangas. As I'm getting better at this, I want to recreate characters from books and movies as manga characters.


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.

Favorite Crafts

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.

Bullet Journaling

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.

Favorite Books

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 ;).

Favorite Movies

I like a lot of movies, except scary ones and I really love Disney movies. If I had to name my favourite movie, I would probably say Passengers, because I watched it in the cinema last year and it was just amazing. 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 currently I'm also trying to grow my own vegetables.

Other Cute Stuff

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.
Another thing I like are stamped images. I don't have a lot of stamps, so I'd love to receive stamped pieces of cardstock. Also, I think those stamps that you can use to create the back of your ATCs are really cool, so if you have one of those and want to stamp a blank ATC for me, I'd be very happy.
Also, I love everything Harry Potter themed.
I'd really like to make pocket letters, but I don't have any of these 9 pocket sleeves and the one I saw on Amazon were quite expensive and really, I don't need a pack of 200 pieces. So, if you send me one of those sleeves, I'd love you for sure ;). Also, if you know where to get them for cheap (and I also mean shipping to Austria), please tell me.
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 :).

Comment: Vielen Dank für die wunderbaren Karten. Ampelmänner mag ich sowieso und die Wien Karte war sensationell. Bei Dir war ja ganz schön was los, das war spannend zu lesen. Und eines kann ich Dir versichern: auch mit zunehmendem Alter wird es immer wieder Anflüge von Unvernunft geben. Und das ist auch gut so. Danke für Deine Karten. Ich hatte heute bei meiner Rückkehr aus dem Urlaub große Freude daran.
Response: Danke, es freut mich sehr, dass sie dir gefallen haben :)

Comment: Thank you for re-sending! I loved reading your thoughts about Othello. I have been wanting to read Shakespeare but have never gotten around to it. I would love to read The Taming of the Shrew. I love the musical Kiss me Kate that was based on that play. Glad you decided to join and challenge yourself. I myself had an awful time with the play I picked, LOL!

“Thanks,” I said. Creepy, creepy, creepy. I didn’t add that he smelled like meat. Not that I could. Apparently, choking helped me keep my mouth shut and mind my manners.

Book Quote - September

"But Rink himself had the most special talent of all: during the full moon he sprouted flowers all over his body. It was a beautiful sight, and they were the prettiest, sweetest-smelling and longest-lasting blossoms you ever saw.

Some folks might stay home sick in bed if they happened to sprout - but not Rink. Every morning following a full moon, his mama would gently clip the flowers from her boy and off he would go to school."

Book Quote - September

From Yamas & Niyamas but Debora Adele:

• • • For reflection: “Truth rarely seems to ask the easier choice of us.”" In what ways are you living an inauthentic life?

“We carry with us, as human beings, not just the capacity to be kind, but the very choice of kindness.”

From Wonder by R.J. Palacio

Book Quote - August

“Over time, Xan had started making certain preparations - a blanket woven of the softest lamb’s wool to wrap the child and keep it warm, a stack of cloths to freshen a wet bottom, a bottle or two of goat’s milk to fill an empty tummy. When the goat’s milk ran out (as it invariably did - the trek was long, and milk is heavy), Xan did what any sensible witch would do: once it was dark enough to see the stars, she reached up one hand and gathered starlight in her fingers, like the silken threads of spider’s webs, and fed it to the child. Starlight, as every witch knows, is marvelous food for a growing infant. Starlight collection takes a certain knack and talent (magic, for starters), but children eat it with gusto. They grow fat and sated and shining.”

“Some of us worry, though, about living a life that’s so grounded on handouts. Idleness leads to trouble. We’re seeing more alcohol. Our kids are using more drugs.”
