About Me

Hello! My name is Marta, I'm 26 and I live in Germany. Originally I come from Latvia, but moved to Germany about 5 years ago to study sociology here. Currently I'm doing my Masters in sociology.

I like and enjoy a whole lot of things some of which include nature, cooking+baking, pugs, llamas, sushi, tea, snooker, ice hockey, jigsaw puzzles, taking walks, travelling, gardening+plants (no green thumb though) and of course snail mail.

I'm trying to live my life in an open-minded and accepting way. I'm very interested in the vegetarian/vegan, environmentally friendly way of living, so I'm always happy to hear about your thoughts and experiences in these areas :) ❤

Snail Mail

I discovered Postcrossing 4 years ago and about 2 years ago I started doing more intricate snail mail. By now I have 5 penpals, all of them are completely different people and I love the fact that I've had the chance to get to know them through this awesome snail mail community.

I enjoy doing all kinds of paper crafts. I absolutely love writing and receiving long letters, but nicely written postcards are just as exciting to receive. As long as the sender puts a little bit of themselves in their mail, it's perfect no matter the length!

I like both the watercolour and the bright and happy colour schemes. My favourite colours include green, yellow, orange, pink and violet. Not-so-favourite colours are brown and gray. Floral and nature themes in general always welcome.

If there is a problem with something I've sent, please contact me and we'll sort it out!

Lists for inspiration

This is a list of things I'd love to receive. It is by no means exclusive but maybe it helps as a source of inspiration :)

• die cuts
• crafting/scrapbook paper
• washi tape
• postcards (blank or written on, except for blank city postcards)
• tea (all kinds, especially rooibos, but please not pure ginger tea)
• herb and other plant seeds with instructions (not succulents please, they just die on me every time)
• recipes that you love
• rubber or silicone stamps
• botanical ephemera
• vintage ephemera

This is a list of things I have too much of already or have no use for, but I'm sure someone else will be happy to receive!

• ginger tea
• coffee
• things with religious or political themes (if you wish to talk about your beliefs, that's fine, I'm just not interested in items with these topics)
• kawaii themed things
• cartoon/anime/Disney themed things
• magazine cuts
• blank city/tourist postcards
• ad postcards

Comment: Vielen lieben Dank für dein wundervolles Päckchen! Was bist du lieb zu mir: Washi samples, ein süßer Brief, zwei Füchsi und dann auch noch eine exzellente Tee-Auswahl? - Ich bin hin und weg! Oh, und natürlich nicht zu vergessen die Zeugenaussage, dass Bielefeld existiert! ;-)
Response: Ich freue mich sehr, dass ich dir damit Freude bereiten konnte! :) <3

Comment: Thank you for sharing:) I've never been to Latvia. I like the Rupjmaize (translation: black bread), Ķiploku grauzdiņi (translation: garlic bread) and I am very interested in the Skābeņu zupa (translation: sorrel soup:))
