things I will buy... some day...

Oh, hello! :)


Hi! I am 36 and a mom of a 3 year-old boy - the joy of my life. Me and my wonderful husband have a cute little house in a small village in southern Germany. Here we live with our silly cat Emmy. We adopted her from an animal shelter when she was one year old. She was terrified about little children when she moved in. But our son is so in love with her, he cozened her with treats - her weakness! Now she is very relaxed when he is around her - she even searches for him when she is hungry. He is the guy with the mouth-watering food.

Our neighborhood is very nice. In summer we meet with our neighbours and make great BBQs. And it is absolutely normal that there are more kids in your garden, than you have together with your husband.

I like my small garden and I love to make trips with my family!

I am a bit nerdy. My husband, at least, says that. I love playing video games (RPGs & Adventures) but I have nearly no time for that anymore since I have a kid. And I like everything video game related.

Luckily my babyboy likes crafting as much as I do. He creates so cute washi-tape-cards. :D And he is using my cuttlebug like a pro!

Favorite Crafts

For years sewing was my favorite! Since I am a mom I have nearly no time - and nerves - for it. But thanks to the lovely @mgallardo68 I am back in sewing again! If you are interested in a private sewing swap, feel free to write me a message! :)

After the birth of my son I started with paper crafts and I LOVE it! I make mini albums for my whole family. It is something that I can do for just five minutes after breakfast or for two houres in the middle of the night. :)
I am completely into ATC-making right now and I try to work on my watercolour painting skills.

In 2016 I discovered PocketLetters and had a lot of fun whith it. But since you have to pay a fee on the official PL-website, I am not a part of the community anymore.

But I try to do a lot of different DIY projects. I am a real self-made-woman.

Favorite Books

Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams wrote the books of my youth. I grew up with their fantasy novels.
I read all books from Christopher Moore. He has kind of a dirty imagination and the language he uses is very... adult... :D
I also like Science-Fiction and Crime Thrillers.

Favorite Movies

Definitely Horror movies! My favorite one is Shaune of the dead. And the classic Night of the living dead.

But I like not only zombie movies.

I like most Disney movies, especially the classics. My favorite is Robin Hood - so cute!!!


Besides familytime I love my 4 Cs:

Cats - Crafting - Coffee - Cupcakes


I love bright colors. Gold - more than silver. And glitter...

Dots - more than stripes.

I have a good amount of washi-tape and I love to use it for album decoration or for postcards.

I had lots of fun making Pocket Letters and would like to swap some again.

Flip-Books and mini-Flip-Books.

For my mini albums (I make about 15 every christmas for my family and friends) I use a lot of embellishments. I make them from scraps - I can use every small piece of paper for it.

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. I can`t throw things away! This is the reason why I need so much space for my crafting hobby.

I am a craftster and I appreciate it when I get self made stuff from others. I think that it worths a lot when people invest their precious time to create something individual.

not my cup of tea...

Sports. The nearest that I come to sports is by playing videogames...

I am not a planer-girl. I had planers years ago but now I don`t use one.

Dark colors and dark chocolate - and I also don`t like spicy chocolate.

would love to receive...


♥ bright colored stuff

♥ embellishments

♥ dotty stuff

♥ tropical prints

♥ stickers (if I don`t use them, my son will!)

♥ everything golden

♥ all about video games - especially the old ones from the 80s and 90s

♥ Art déco

♥ stamps (clear or rubber - not postage stamps)

♥ cutting dies for my Cuttlebug

♥ embellishments for mini albums

♥ tiny pieces of paper - I use every small bit of paper to make embellishments (and if you have any paperscraps you don`t like, send it as well: my son loves to use his little scissors and cut paper into smithereens)

hints for the Christmas calendar swaps:

♥ all my likes from my profile :)

♥ Christmas decoration made of wood (or other natural materials) or metall (no pottery, please)

♥ small fairy-lights

♥ I like Santas, reindeers, Jul, winter wonderland, Jesus... I am open to nearly everything

♥ handmade Christmas decorations and ornaments

♥ Christmas colours for me are red, green, golden, creme, brown, teal, pile and even pink - the only no-nos for me are silver and blue.

♥ handlotion (the only kind of lotion I would be super happy about!)

would not be too happy with...


◔̯◔ cosmetics and lotions (other than handlotion)

◔̯◔ food with wheat

◔̯◔ dirty stuff (really....)

Comment: Vielen Dank für die coole Karte zum B! Das Spiel klingt genial. Das hätte ich sicher auch gern gespielt. 🙂 Vielen Dank auch für die schönen Postkarten. 🙂 Tut mir sehr leid, dass du schon die Hoffnung aufgegeben hättest, weil bei mir leider die Post oft nur so selten kommt... :(
HippieChick rated for supplies for surprise on Feb 6, 2019
Comment: This arrived yesterday and I am still blown away! Thank you so much! I love it all! Those little watercolour cubes a so sweet. We have that brand here but it is rather pricy, and hard to come across, so I haven't had a chance to try them yet, thank you for sharing! I am amazed the little porcelain (?) stars survived the trip, only the 2 largest had cracked but I was able to repair them and they will be wonderful! I have a project to make little crescent moons with a friend and they will be perfect accents for them! They are the cutest! Romy, you spoiled me. I feel like I didn't send enough for this exchange. I continue to keep an eye out for cute stencils for your little one. ;) Thank you so much. Mail from you always brightens my day/week and I always appreciate it. And your little watercolour practise pieces are wonderful. I think I shall make a small journal to practise watercolour in. Thank you for the inspiration!
Response: Narf.... I knew it! I should have wrapped the stars better. I am sorry that they were damaged but luckily you were able to fix them! They are handmade of clay. In a tiny pottery in the region where I grew up. :) The watercolors are ridiculous pricy here, too! But I found them for such a good price, I just had to try them. Now that I found my favourit watercolors I woun`t use them anymore and thought you could practice with them. :) I like their quality. The idea with the journal is fantastic! perhaps I should try that as well... Nothing is better than making others happy. Mission complete! :D Looking forward to swap with you again!
Comment: Love how they turned out. Thank you a lot for the extras I can use in the album
Response: Thank you!!! :)
dorcii rated for IPC: One Word Swap on Feb 3, 2019
Comment: Thanks for your parcel :) I really liked the gifts, but you forgot to mention the name of the swap, so I really needed to do a research from which swap it came from
Response: Thank you for the 5 and the heart! :) And sorry that I did not mention the swap name. I am always only in a very few swaps and can keep track of every one of them. I just forget that other swapers are way more active then I am... XD But I am glad you like the swap and I hope you can use some of the content.

Comment: I love the ATC you made, such a great work ^^ I saw it on Instagram earlier, thought it was awesome and I'm happy to notice it looks even better live ;) I also appreciate the little letter you wrote and all the extras, thank you so much!
Response: Some days after I sent it, I realized that you are one of my few followers and I was SO sorry that I gave you this giant spoiler.... :( Sorry! I will be a bit more careful with the timing I post images there. But I am happy that you like this small ATC. :) Although it did not look exactly how I expected it, I was quiet happy with this tiny watercolor painting. :) Thank you for your rating and the nice comment...!

Comment: Thank you so much for your card and description of your Christmas preparations!
Response: It was a fun swap and I enjoyed to write something in two languages to you. :) Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Wish I could give you more than 1 heart. The watercolor on the ornaments and the background is great. Love the dimension. The book is amazing. I am really a huge fan of the sscrap samplers. I would like to know about the latex binding. (I am not allergic) Thanks too for the german texts and the book page with the illustration, how cute!!!!
Response: Yeah! :D Thank you for the rating and the awesome comment! I am completely into watercolors right now - I am not really good but even tiny exercises are able to fully relax me and that is worth so much... The scrap samplers are so easy to make but I like them as small gifts for other crafters and already made a bunch. :D I will send you a message about the binding. :)

Comment: Danke dir für die schöne Weihnachtskarte. Und sogar mit Weihnachtsbriefmarke. Wollte Samstag welche holen, aber die standen bei der Post Schlange bis raus auf die Straße und da hatte ich keine Lust, mich anzustellen.
Response: Sehr gerne! :) Unsere Postfiliale hat nicht mal besondere Briefmarken... Ich bestelle sie mir gerne online (versandkostenfrei). :D Frohes Fest!
pahasiga rated for CPG 2018 Flat Ornament - Global on Dec 5, 2018
Comment: Thank you so much for the shaker ornament!! I now want to try to make one like this myself. How did you get the thickness (sides)?
Response: woahr... O_O This needed only two days to arrive! I am glad you like the ornament. I couldn`t stop making them and now I have a couple for our tree... :D I used some layers of rubber foam (I hope this is the right translation) - the colorful stuff small kids use for crafting. The clear foil is some old packaging. Befor you glue something on the plastic, try some different glues. I realized that some of my best glues did absolutely not stick to the plastic. And to pevent the glitter to fall out, I put some Glossy Accents around the outside edges. I would love to see the ornaments you make...! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for such a wonderful box to open, and the awesomely wrapped gifts! I'm saving them for advent calendar gifts, but already I'm so so happy, due to the wrapping with cat themed fabric <3
Response: I was hoping you could use the wrapping for your quilt! :D

Swan on Jan 7, 2019:

Thank you for the little gift that turned out to be a set of clear stamps! I opened it just recently.

user6937 on Dec 29, 2018:

RAK advent box! Romy, I ended up saving ALL of your little gifts and opened them on Xmas day - my husband and I decided to leave town and spend it in a nearby mountain town (Canmore, near Banff) - we were hoping for snow, but this year the town was bare). THANK YOU! I took a picture of everything and will post it on my profile. I saved almost everything (the numbers, the paper, the stickers, etc). Only one question - what is the white pencil crayon? Is it an art pencil of some sort? Your wonderful present is truly appreciated. HUGS!

mgallardo68 on Nov 17, 2018:

((❤️❤️❤️)) THANK YOU

user6937 on Nov 13, 2018:

Totally surprised with your Xmas RAK today, Romy - a wonderful package that I'm over the top excited to open each day starting Dec 1!

anicka22 on Nov 7, 2018:

Romy! Thank you for all the beautiful stamps you sent for Make A Wish September!! They are very fun & colorful : ) Also thank you for the postcard from your vacation. Sounds like it was a very nice trip. I’m glad your son enjoyed it. The sea is amazing! And the Peanuts stamps, yay!! xxxx

Weird Profile Deco #3 - Art

I went with sculptures:

Erika Sanada

Erika Sanada - I love her stuff; it's cute and creepy at the same time.

Beth Cavener Stichter

Beth Cavener Stichter - another great artist who does weird fabulous things.

Cameron Stalheim

Cameron Stalheim - his most famous piece is a merman, but it doesn't lend itself to the 300x300 format.

Xooang Choi

Xooang Choi - Does some weird shit.
