I just moved to France!!!!!, henceforth I live and swap from Toulouse, but I hope to travel to Spain often, so I guess I could include French and Spanish items alike in my swaps
I am a 33-year-old girl from Guadalajara, a little town in Spain but, as it is very near Madrid and I work there, I spend almost the whole day in Madrid (the capital city of Spain).
I studied Economics and Law and a MsC in International Relations.
Travelling is one of my passions, I love to visit new cities and countries and to learn about other cultures. I lived in Belgium for a year (as a student) and I worked in Tunisia several months with an NGO. IÂ´ve also visited Israel, Jordan, Morocco, Venezuela, Cuba and many European countries.
I usually use snail post and, sometimes I reuse some envelopes, please feel free to do the same.
I always send muy swapts, so, if you do not receive it, please let me know before rating me.
I love rock music!!
But I also love latin rythm, swing, jazz or rumba.
I love reading. One of my favourites writters is Isabel Allende. I usually read historical novels, classical litterature, black/mistery novels, humourous novels or even terror stories (from Stephen King to Edgard A. Poe). I do not appeciate science-fi or fantastic novels
I love comics, specially Calvin and Hobbes, Le petit Spirou and anything by Quino or Maitena.
I like short stories a lot.
I usualy read Spanish or Latin American writers, but I also love to read French litterature (in French) and I am trying to read more in English (sorry for my poor English, by the way)
I absolutely dislike Bret Easton Ellis, but I would like to find someone who can convince me to give another opportunity to the X-generation.
I do not like poetry
I love classic films.
I have the poster of "Gilda" (with Rita Hayworth) in my bedroom...It is my favourite film ever, even if I know that it is not the best one I have watched.
I also love "Gone with the wind", "Casablanca", "Sunset Bulevard" (well, I love everything by Billy Wilder)...
I also like the films that make you think, but somedays I need just some thing funny and easy: love films, thrillers...
I hate terror films....they scare me!!!
I love handmade things.
well...I must admit I do not like "fofuchas" (sorry, I do not know the name in English, but you can check it in google).
I do NOT do scrapbooking!!!. PLEASE, DO NOT SEND ME SCRAPBOOKING SUPLIES
Patchwork and crochet usually impress me...I just got basic notions of sewing and crocheting.
I love modern and classical or vintage style alike
I am a passionate of crafting, I do jewelery, I sew softies, bags and, eventually, some garments and I do some small decorative objects. You can visit my blog in order to see what I do in detail.
I would enjoy almost every supply: charms, chains, fabric, buttons, whashi tape, pearls, threads, wool, stamps...
I love maps, specially if they seem old.
In Spain it is dificult to find sharpies, blackboard painture or wax paper.
If you want to, you can check my blog (sorry, it is just in Spanish)
Or my pinterest:
I love cooking, even if I am not the best at it.
Lately IÂ´m trying to improve my cooking skills. Every baking supply and recipe is welcome, but in Spain it is specially difficult to find supplies to do cake pops, colorants, etc.
I love chocolate, specially dark chocolate and flavoured (mint, orange, berries...). I appreciate every kind of sweets, but chocolate is my favourite.
I also love salty snacks and every kind of nuts.
I like to try exotic food (by exotic I mean everything different to spanish food), so, feel free to send me any recipe, I hope not to have problems to find the ingredients. Spices and herbs are a wonderful world that I am slowy starting to discover.
In Spain coffe is the typical hot drink (and a veeeeery thick chocolate) but I always drink tea. I generally prefer black scented tea (earl grey and so on), but I also love green and white tea.
