About Me

Please make sure my surname (not my username) is clear on the envelope above my address.

I’m an Aussie, living in Berlin, Germany. I finished studying a Bachelor of Art and Diploma of beauty therapy, which I do not use. I read a lot, mainly fiction but also some informative books on a wide range of themes. I also read a magazine that I have a subscription to in German. With books I like to have one German book and one English book on the go. I like cutting pictures out of magazines and sticking them in books to make new journaling pages. I enjoy playing bingo, which is nostalgia from playing with my grandmother when I was younger. I like photography, especially black and white photos and old polaroids. I love flowers, household plants and learning about their benefits. I am learning about what plants from the weed variety are actually edible, like dandilion or nettle. I enjoy taking holidays and looking forward to exploring Europe more. Winter is my favourite season (as long as I can be warm!). I like all colours, but especially purples, reds and greens. I am quite happy with my own company and never seem to run out of things to do. That said, I have a boyfriend and a black cat and I enjoy their company too!

I love cat related things - especially black cats. I also love mice and blackbirds. Ferns, pheasants, carnations, snowdrops, ivy, oak trees, nature, dried/pressed flowers. I love gypsy caravans. Historical items. Any kind of cute stickers are welcome! Even the dreaded sticker flakes. I am religious, but in my own kind of way. I can't get enough washi tapes, I'm always happy to receive some!

I would love to receive anything with the common blackbird on it. It is my favourite garden bird.

Favourite Season: Winter Favourite Colours: Purple, Forest Green, Crimsen, Gold and Silver

Favorite Music

To be honest I don't listen to so much music anymore. But generally easy indie or something a little unique. I listen to mainly podcasts. In particular - The Higherside Chat Show Crrow777Radio Michelle Gibson (on YouTube)

Favorite Crafts

I'll try anything, I'm currently crocheting a cardigan and I am learning how to knit colour-work socks with mushroom patterns - see Stoneknits on Etsy. I enjoy cooking and will often cook something from a recipe book, but generally it should have a picture so I know what it should look like. I enjoy my junk journaling and making collages. Letter sets/notecards, memo papers are always welcome!

Stickers, even puffy stickers! (Nothing too childish). Magazine/Newspaper cut outs, dicuts, things I can use in a junk journal. Anything cat related, floral, nature, pretty.

Favorite Books

Cold comfort farm - Stella Gibbons. My Struggle (series) - Karl Ove Knausgård Anastasia (series) - Vladimir Megre Flames - Robbie Arnott Though a Glass Darkly - Karleen Koen

Favorite Movies

Indie films! Suggest some from your country please! I generally will not watch big Hollywood films including Disney. I can no longer tolerate violence or to be honest sex-scenes. I do not see how it really enhances a film. Subtle and not in-your-face is always better. I enjoy watching foreign films, dramas, especially Japanese dramas because they are quite slow and calm (but generally not Manga).

enter title...

I enjoy swimming (in a swimming pool) and try to also go to the gym regularly. I enjoy Pilates. I work full-time in an office. Unfortunately my commute to work is quite long and that makes me tired! But I do get to read a lot which is great. I love the idea of The Beartaria Times, building a community and living simply. I like vintage designs, flowers, nostalgia, old traditional christmas & snow scenes. Australiana!

Likes & Dislikes

I am happy to take any notecards, notepapers/memopapers, letter sets!

I would not like to receive food items. I do not need or want disney, hollywood, manga items.

Thank you! :)

Comment: Hello! I loved reading all your responses <3 Have you had your cat checked for diabetes? Usually senior cats develop it. My 17 year old did and he is doing so much better. I live in t shirts and yoga pants so I feel you on the clothes. And yes, I love cake. It is hard to pick a favorite but I'd have to say good ol vanillal or carrot cake and now I want some! Thank you for sharing some of yourself with me!
Response: No, perhaps that would be a good thing to do. Thanks!

Comment: Hi Carys, Thanks so much for your newsy weekend notecard. You and your boyfriend pack alot of activities into a weekend! I was sorry to read that your homemade bread didn't turn out. My significant others makes his in the air fryer. It comes out wonderful every time. We have woodpeckers here in Florida too. We even have one that visits my building in "woodpecker season". He pecks away on a drainpipe instead of a tree, silly woodpecker! Have a wonderful week and thanks again for your nice notecard and note.

Comment: So wonderful to receive from you again! Thank you for the chatty note and the recipe (I'm so curious to try it out!) and the ephemera and the updates! <3 It sounds like you've had a busy time lately! I'm so excited that you got to see Swan Lake (going to a ballet would be amazing) I love that you saw a band called Stars from Canada (are they actually from here??!) I've always wanted to try out float therapy ... oddly enough, I wonder if I'd get bored or distracted while I'm supposed to literally just float and relax. lol Thanks so much for everything! Your swap made me smile. <3

Comment: Thank you so much for all the thought and care you put into this swap! It just arrived in a baggie from the post office. I guess it got ripped, and they forwarded it with an apology-- hence the delay. Nothing was missing though because the tape you added secured it well. It was really interesting to get a glimpse into someone else's life with all the detail. Especially in another country. The stickers were all really cute too. Great swap! Thank you!

Comment: Thanks for the great letter. So many things we just don't do here in my part of the states. For example, the allotment gardens. Other swappers in different parts of the country have community gardens. I grew up on a small farm and LOVE fresh veggies. Also, we don't really bike much to places and really don't have much public transportation in my area. Again, loved reading your letter. Thanks for the bookmark.
Response: Thanks for your comment, I'm glad you liked the letter. It's nice to learn about other places.

Comment: Thank you for the wonderful letter and the little print-out stickers! I live in a relatively small town in central Iowa, so you are so lucky to be near so many wonderful things to do in Berlin. I've never been to Europe, but I would love to visit someday. I think the same thing about health, I used to take lots of medications but stopped and I have felt better since then. Happy swapping!
