Updated June 2016 Starting on Feb. 1st I will work about 200 miles away from home. So usually I will be gone from Monday through Friday. I will check messages in between and make sure that all swaps I join will be send on time. Especially because I prefer sending from my work place. the post office here is so much more reliable.
Hello you :)
Have been a while on swapbot and I love it here. I decided to shorten my profile, so if you have any questions or are unsure about what to send, please ask me.
Very important for packages and biiiiiiig envelopes from outside of Europe:
our customs can be very strict. so please add CN22 form (even though you print it from the www).
Swaps should be marked as a gift.
I have to pay taxes for everything which values more than 25 $, even if it is a gift. I won't sign up for this kind of swaps and kindly ask you to make sure you aren't above this value.
Consider tracking around special holidays (eg. Christmas) to lower the chance that it gets lost or stolen.
Some things about me:
My name is Bianca, originally I come from Northern Germany - but live now ath the border to Switzerland with my partner Michael and our cat Jinx. There are a couple of funny stories around her.
In my freetime I love to practice yoga, read, cook (especially for lots of people), hang out with friends or make craft gifts for family and friends. I love the ocean, can't imagine a better way to spent a full day than being at the beach, listen to the waves all day long.
For me it is very important to make the people around me smile and I think it is an honor to do this internationally too. So I always think about what I sent and I really hope you like it :)
In general I like things who look nice or elegant, but please check my wishlist and do not send list for further details. My wishlist should give you an idea of things I like. You don't have to send something from the list, but I kindly ask you to pay close attention to my don't send list. There are food allergies and other things which are very important. These things can make it difficult to choose something for me. Even if it spoils the surprise: you can always write me a message and I let you know. This way you don't spend money on something I throw into the garbage.
Have a nice day!
I don't do crafts for myself, only to gift others.Either a birthday present, something for a wedding or just because I like to make them something.
Disney (When it comes to Disney I think the old fashioned movies like arielle, beauty and the beast, bambi peter pan and mickey mouse, but I do love Tinkerbell a lot and big hero 6, frozen, brave is okay too. don't like cars, planes or incredibles) No childish things though.
elegant stationary (matching envelope and paper preferable about the size of Din A5)
things around airmail: stickers or nice envelopes (no plain color or white envelopes : maybe make them out of wrapping paper)
I love these kind of pop-open cards: http://www.live-inspired.com/Pop-open-Cards-C225
scented tea candles from party lite (no others please)
sox all kinds as long as there is more than one color (maybe a print, christmas themed or so). I CAN'T wear sox with polyamide, polyacryl and especially wool. So my sox need to be 100% cotton. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Size: 36 / 5.5
selfmade gift tags not christmas related and no plain colors. Not store bought please.
English books for babies and toddlers (new condition). No other languages included and also fantasy books (no science fiction) for myself in English.
kitchen towels with spring / summer thanksgiving / easter theme / winter theme. Not in yellow. Our kitchen has green accents (this kind of glaring green, spring, green apple type of green) so if it fits to that color it would be nice.
nice,very thin pens (3mm and thiner) to use for writing (love colors like purple, pink, red, turqoise, gold, silver). I especially love pens from le pen. No gel pens, ball point or pencils though. Please check the difference if you aren't sure.
love the color purple and turquoise
hand crafted stamps to use for swaps / writing. Can also be christmas themed .
christmas or disney used/mint stamps for my collection
Stickers - NOT reward / teachers / label ones though.
used postage - my cousin is collecting it them. No stamps from Germany please.
washi tapes. For example with snowflakes, or flowers. I am looking more for realistic / artistic ones. No animal prints or plain colors.
Christmas Time and everything about it. Christmas themed items (stationary, stickers, paper), teas (organic)- just love it. I love to see what special Christmas Items your city/ country has. See what kind of wrapping papers you have or what are your traditions around Christmas. Please no decorations, I am very specific if it comes to that, but stationary, cards, etc is fine.
No religious themed items
No hazelnuts or peanuts - I am allergic to them.
No beauty products which are not organic. I have atopic eczema/ neurodermatitis and can't use non organic.
Earrings other than silver ( have to be nickelfree).
No rose smell on any items.
No paper scraps
No sticky notes or office supplies
No dairy products (high quality milk chocolate is okay - only exception to this)
To add up to allergies / intolerances: I have fructose intolerance. Which basically means no wheat products, all things with fruits (weather dried fruit, fruit in candy bars or even fruit tea).
Thanks for keeping this in mind :)
Only for postcards swaps, otherwise postcards aren't on my wishlist:
I do not like: - funny postcards
postcard send in envelopes (prefer them naked and written on)
Thank you for reading my whole profile :)
Please beware that this section is only for special tea swaps I join. Otherwise I do not wish to receive teas at all. Please pay attention when it's just a profile based swap, because then I don't wish to receive any tea. Thank you for understanding.
and hello to you tea-swapper,
Just a short information about teas: I prefer tea bags over lose tea in swaps, but if you wrap it well it's very nice to receive lose tea too.
Tastes I like: - Black Tea without flavor (not Earl Grey and English Breakfast though) - Ice Teas (this would be a tea who is made to be cooled down or can be made with cold water) - Green teas with natural flavors - Teas which taste like Christmas - Herbal teas - I prefer organic over regular teas
and about my dislikes: - I do love to drink fruit tea, but due to intolerance I am not really able to enjoy it. Please do not send it. - No Earl Grey or English Breakfast - No (flavoured) white tea - No tea where the only flavor is vanilla - Rose as the main ingredient
