Hi fellow Swappers and Happy Mailers
My name is Sabine, I'm a 30something singe Gal from Germany and I Am A Child Of God. Yup... I love Jesus and he loves me. I enjoy spending time studying he bible, journaling what I discovered and, since I just discovered Bible Art Journaling / Illustrated Faith, I'm turning some of that into art. I also love worship and prayer time at home and in my church community. I'm very involved at my church volunteering in the kitchen cooking for events and co-leading a youth group.
FYI: I've been in and out of hospitals in the past 2 years and therefor not active on here. I wan't to get back into swapping a bit, without breaking the bank so I'll probably only do 3-4 swaps per month.
I also just opened two groups of my own. I couldn't find a Bible art journaling group os similar here and all the Sweets swap groups are pretty much dead. So since I live by the motto "be the change you want to see" so I started the groups myself. They are called "Shameless Chocoholics and Candylovers" and "Faith heART Swaps". I think the first one doesn't warrant an explanation. The second group is for all people who love to praise God through their creativity, through Bible art journaling, prophetic art, illustrated faith,... . So if you want - come and check us out and I would be delighted if you joined us.
some of the things I like to do: - Baking, Traveling, some crafts, especially bible art journaling, Crocheting, baking, cooking, sports, did I mention baking yet? just to name a few. I'm also very involved in my church, a non denominational church here in Germany.
The Bible, Any book by Charles Martin, John Eldredge and Francine Rivers. I also like historic novels, and well written and cute and funny children books. Astrid Lindgren is just amazing
Things that might be helpful:
Things I enjoy:
crazy socks especially holiday themed socks (christmas socks make me very happy!!!)
Funny or pretty paper napkins
Anything that has to do with midwifery (pregnancy, babies,...)
I'm a big circus fan. Not really the animal acts but acrobatic and especially clowns. My favorite is almost any show by cirque du soleil. I like vintage circus themed stuff too.
Sakura Gelly Roll pens bright, glittery or pastels
micro pens with super fine tips in black for sketching and writing
stamps: alphabet, nature (foliage) and season (spring, summer,...) designs, vintage or shabby chic designs And you would make me so happy if you'd send me pretty Christian faith based (acrylic) stamps
stickers but not childish or kawaii
thickers or other alphabet stickers
rub ons (they are almost impossible to get here)
Buttons (mainly for art) in all shapes colors and sizes
characters I like are: Calvin& Hobbes, Peanuts, Disney characters (but not the princesses), People of the Bible
bakers twine in all colors
cute cupcake liners
my favorite colors are : aqua, Hot pink, white, dark blue, I like the combination of these colors too
and to be honest I like all bright happy colors
I love trying new recipes, especially old family recipes, traditional foods from your region and even more if it's for something sweet!
Things I don't really care about:
Hello Kitty, and other Kawaii or overly cutsie stuff
most ephemera, like monopoly money or magazine clippings, or tiny paper scraps, unless it's vintage tag's or something unique that fit's my other likes or personality
Kawaii and other ubercute and childish designs
Skulls, Vampires, Ghosts and other "scary stuff"
anything adult themed paganism, witchcraft, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam,... I'm a Christian and I hope you will respect that
bath salts, bath oil, bubble bath,... anything to use in bath tubs - Besides rubber duckies :-) I don't have a bath tub and even if I did I probably wouldn't use it. I am one of those weird females that doesn't looove taking baths.
I've been doing quite a few food swaps, so I decided to put my food related likes and dislikes in one convenient location.
...pretty much anything but some fav's include:
I always wanted to try:
I like almost anything here as well but you will make me very happy with: - spicy - beef jerky - unusual unique things
Not to keen on...
The only thing I'm not a fan of (besides coffee) is green tea
With all the dislikes above please note: I have plenty of family and friends who really enjoy these things, so if you send it, I won't rate you down at all!
No dislikes here :-)))
But I like/need especially basic things that are hard to get here, like chocolate/peanut butter chips (all forms and sizes), pumpkin purée or graham crackers.
I know those are heavy and make it expensive to ship, so don't worry about it if it's not in your budget!!!!
I do enjoy private swaps a lot.
So if you wanna swap for anything or looking for something special/particular from Germany or Austria (I live right at the border), just let me know.
If you are a newbie and have 3 swaps or less I'm happy to help you out with a private swap to get some ratings. I then only ask you to send first and I send mine out once I received your package.
... the subject of packaging, sending and rating:
Packaging: I do reuse packaging. Why? because A) I think its a waste of material not to, and B) I'd rather use the money, that I would have to spend on boxes and (padded) envelopes, to be able to join more swaps and/or make the packages more special with extras.
Sending: I vow to send on time or let my swap partner know in advance if I will be delayed.
Rating: I always Rate the day I have received and opened my swap mail. And I will not rate a 3 or a 1 without contacting my swap partner first.
Happy swapping everyone!
