Hi Everybody, and welcome to my profile!
My name is Heidi, and I´m 32 years old. I live with my husband, Mikael, and our two cats Kandis and Sambo. The newest addition to our family is our son Jonas, who was born in november 2014. He is our sunshine and the center of our world.
I teach at the local school, and i am very passionate about my job. I teach danish, german and music.
When i don´t grade papers, i am usually in the kitchen - i love baking! Or I am reading or playing with my son - which is my all time favorite activity.
We love travelling, and have been many places around the world (our favorites for now are Germany and USA)
Although I love travelling, I am absolutely in love with Denmark, where I have lived my whole life. If you are looking for any danish specialities (food, candy, souveniers, postcards, and...) please let me know, and we can set up a private swap
colors I guess my favorite colour is orange (and fall/autumn colors in general), but I love many colors:) I try to keep our home happy and bright, so we use a lot of orange, lime green and yellow in our house. (except for december when everything magically turns red:))
Books I also really enjoy a good book. I read a lot of chick-lit . Favorites are Lindsey Kelk, Sophie Kinsella, Marian Keyes and others in the same style. I love to sit down after a long day and just switch off all contacts and relaxe with a good chicklit-book:)
Stephen King is my favoriteauthor. I have read all of his books (several times), and i´m still as scared as the first time i read them!
movies I love watching movies, but I am not really a "fan" of any movies or actors. . I am crazy about older movies like "the goonies" and "the neverending story", oh and "back to the future":)
Please think of this as inspiration and not a shoppinglist - I love to receive thoughtfully selected mail from my partners:)
you are welcome to take a look at my etsy wishlist (link at the top of my profile:)). It can also be used just for inspiration (I have items in many categories and prices, because I also keep it for my personal shopping:))
candy and chocolate ( I have a separate list below, but I am exited to try most things:))
hot chocolate (yum yum)
I do not collect stamps, however, if it is possible for you to put real stamps on your envelope to me, I would be very happy, since I put all of the envelopes in my smashbook:)
Anything for my christmas journal (I love receiving christmaspapers, stickers, embellishments and such all year round!:))

things for wrapping presents (boxes, wrapping paper, bags, tags...) I love to wrap presents, and I can use both for christmas and for birthdays (I would love something to wrap toddlerboy presents with:))

useful rubberstamps (with either my likes or with general sayings like "hello", "thank you" or mailthemed. Please no stamps with quotes or other random images)
Postcards/greetingcards/notecards suitable for birthdaywishes and thank yous (but please no random cards!)
I keep a planner mostly for my job. I can not add pages, but I would love things to decorate it with. Especially in following themes: teacher, books, music, toddlerboy, but also useful pieces to use in a planner (but remember, I mostly use it at work).
I love receiving thoughfully decorated envelopes
washitape and samples with following themes: books, cats, toddlerboy, baking, school, halloween, fall and christmas
for my husband Mikael. He would also love a treat, and I am just as happy to receive something for him as for myself:) He loves anything with baconflavour (but please don´t send real bacon, my mailman won´t like it:)). He is crazy about Kinder Happy Hippo (which we can´t get here) ,and He also loves anything with oreo-flavour (would love to try other flavours, we only get normal and chocolate here). He is a big hockeyfan, and would love a hockey-souveneir, or perhaps something from Raiders NFL. He also love spraycheese (he buys a can every time we are in the US:))
wearables for my son, Jonas (from november 2014). The best thing I ever received from a partner, was a handmade NFLhat made for him. (but please no stickers, craftitems, edibles or toys, he usually plays outside. In all kinds of weather:))
anything made with inspiration from my profile.
I would be much happier to receive one item in good condition than 5 items in poor quality.
I would love to get all sorts of candy/chocolate - i love trying new things!
Some of the things that I have tried and really love:
m&ms with peanutbutter or raspberry - mmm they are so yummy!
anything with watermelonflavour
Dorina chocolate with Jaffa (dark chocolate with jaffa cake inside, yum! I think I received it from Slovenia?)

Betty crockers: Reeses dessert bar mix or any other special bake mix (especially halloween/christmasthemed)
any chocolate with berry or fruit taste
i love things with fruit/sour flavour (esp lemon - yum yum!), as well as salty licorice.
If you are in Norway I love Troika trippel nydelse! (And urge-soda, but I guess that will not be suitable for mailing:))
anything with pumpkin spice flavour! (muffinmix, candy, coffe, chocolate, cookies, cakes...
I do not eat hardboiled candies, or chewinggum, because they hurt my teeth) also I am really not crazy about mintflavour or raisins.
For some reason I have received some of these items, even though they are on my "no thank you - list". I am sorry, but most of it will just go straight in the trash. ( I do not mean to sound ungrateful, but I truly have no room for it)
hard boiled candies and chewinggum
Please NO make up, beautyproducts, jewelry (exceptions above), lotions, nailpolish and similar
please no random scrap/paper/stickers/postcards/quotes/magazine cutouts/similar unless they are related to my likes (Unless I am in a "random envie swap" or similar, then the above is of course just fine!:))
I also have no need for souveniers, keychains, cat toys, erasers, pencilsharpeners, kawaii and random bits and pieces (I really have no room or use for them, sorry)
I always send out on time, and usually shortly after partners are assigned.
I re-use envelopes.
Post to and from Denmark is very reliable (sometimes the weather can cause a minor delay, especially in winter).
Please notice, that I deliver my mail in a small post"office", and I can not guarantee, that my envelopes will be stamped on the same day as I deliver it to the postoffice! (They do not stamp it untill it arrives to the mainquarters of the postalservice).
If you for some reason are not happy with something I sent you, please let me know. I aim to make my partners happy, and I really enjoy putting a lot of thought and effort into the things that I send out.
