UPDATE!!!!! Hello dear friends, I am sorry to leave definitely Swap-Bot, or at least in a long time. There was an unfortunate fact in my family, my dear mother has suffered a stroke and is in hospital in very bad condition. Fortunately is out of danger, but their ability to speak, walk and move have been seriously damaged. I've barely had time to reach the hospital and run to write for your pardon. From now on I will not participate in any swap, I will try by all means send in time those swap that already had assigned partners, but some may arrive a little later, I really will do everything it is in my power to not fail anyone. As you will understand my mother will need a lot of support and I'll be too busy then I will take over the care of her. I really hope that you understand the plight that has been in my family since my father is ill, has severe kidney failure and we are afraid that this new situation can worsen his state because he is in predialysis. I hope to return one day when the situation returns to normal. Thanks to all.

I'm 33 years old. I love swapping things and have friends everywhere. I fulfill every swap I participarte in. If there's any problem with my package, please give me the oportunity to rectify the situation before rating a 3 or 1. I am a newbie to swap-bot, however my first swap was in 2006 and I was given a 3. In that time I was going through a bad time, I have suffered a nervous breakdown, today I am fully recovered. It isn't an excuse, but I guess I didn´t understand the rules, and even my english wasn't good enough, anyway. I've rediscovered swapping and I am totally in. I hope, I can do something to rectify and remedy this 3.
I love crafting, makes me feel very good. I try every technique at least once. I like yarn, crochet and sew, because are the first I learned from my mother, who is a true master in the craft. Although I grew up thinking I had no talent in the midst of a family where both my parents and my brother were very good with their hands, I find that I am crazy about Crafts and DIYs, and now I can not live without them. I also like reading, writing, watching movies and series, cooking, baking, making photos and discover new places.
My career is about all type of cultural manifestations, especially arts, crafts and writing. Love languages too, I can read/speak in English, French, Portuguese, and I have begun to learn German. I Love postcards and any kind of stationery, journals, notebooks, handmade paper etc.. I've just discovered ATCs, inchies, homemade cards, art journals and book binding, and I am crazy about it, but but I'm starting, so do not judge my work too harshly, please!! I am totally in upcycle, love to give things new use or find the artistic side in something that could be trash for anybody. Please warned I sometimes reuse or make my own envies, hope you don't mind.

I always send my swaps. So if you don't receive a swap from me, please message me before rating, sometimes spanish post it is very slow, so if you have any problem, please, let me know and if you finally don't receive your package, I will send you again. I always rate your swap when I receive it, so please, do the same. It is extremely difficult for me to receive a package I do not like, so I always start with a 5, and then I give a heart if it is especially amazing. I'm always up for private swaps and penpals! Just message me!!
