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.
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. 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.
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 :).
