About Me

Hi there :) Welcome to my profile! Although I registered ages ago, I recently got back into the world of swapping, being crafty and penpalling. Getting rated seemed so hard back then and my rl has been busy, but now that I got my degrees and a full-time job, I'm ready to start over :) I'm a 29 y.o.(30 soonish and probably the only female in the world who's excited about it^^) "girl" from Germany. (scratch that...I'm 30 now *yay) I love the old-fashioned way of getting snail mail. A letter is a gift to me and I like putting effort into it. I like to decorate my letters, giving them themes and create a nice envelope (I just found out that there's even a name for it - mailart^^).

I also like watching movies and tv-shows, reading and crafting. I like being creative and love languages and other cultures. I'm a introverted person but can be very chatty^^.My friends call me pessimistic, I rather think I'm realistic.^^ I love to laugh and I'm fluent in irony and sarcasm. I'm a coffee-addicted bookworm and a summer-child - I rather sweat than freeze^^. I love animals and I'm a vegetarian...not a very militant one, though...in other words: I'm strict about my diet - I don't eat any meat, fish or gelatin but I'm not going to argue about what you eat ;). My favourite animals are (sting)rays but I love pretty much the entire animalkingdom. You know the way most women react when they see a baby...I do that whenever I see an animal^^^. I recently moved together with my bf - it was about time after being a couple for more than 10 years.^^ Now we are living together with our cat (although I'm more of a dog-person) in a cute little house. I enjoy sitting outside in the garden with a cup of coffee and writing letters and postcards - let's see how the gardening part will work out...^^ I work in the social field in a kind of children's home/protectory as manager and social worker. I'm interested in psychology and social sciences in general, philosophy and neuro sciences.

You can find me with the same username on postcrossing ;)

Feel like we could click? I'd love to find a new penpal...

Favorite Music

I like all kinds of music - it's really depending on my mood. Lyrics matter most to me (and the melody of course ;-)). I'm into rock & alternative mostly, but classic, pop...everything goes...

Favorite Books

I'm a bookworm. I usually read 2 or more books at the same time. I'm addicted to crime, thrillers and mysteries. Yes, I'm a adrenaline-junkie. I also like vampire-stories & urban fantasy (I'm pretty obsessed, actually^^ - my addiction started with Anne Rice not with Twillight ;)), classical stuff, teenage flics,...not really into science fiction and classical fantasy. I love Jane Austen, too.

Favorite Movies

I tend to watch movies only once (I'm a bit quirky about that)...there are a few exceptions to this rule, though: Mansfield Park, Scream, Jenseits der Stille ( a good german one) and Becoming Jane (I love James McAvoy). My favourite genres are horror, comedies and teen flics.

Favorite Television

I don't watch much TV, if I do I like to watch documentaries and quiz shows. And I'm addicted to dvd-boxes. Some of my favourite TV-Shows:

♦ Sherlock ♦ Fringe ♦ True Blood ♦ Vampire Diaries ♦ Gossip Girl ♦ Torchwood ♦ Supernatural ♦ Warehouse 13 ♦ Buffy the Vampire Slayer ♦ Veronica Mars ♦ Psych

Favorite Crafts

Drawing, Collages, Mailart, Smash Books

I love...

I collect / things I like to receive: ~ these - as well as my links- are just meant as hints (I find it easier to look at pics to get an impression of what my partner likes)...I don't expect anyone to spend a fortune on me or expensive/brand items..if you send me something similar or somethings that's free but matches (e.g. a used and empty starbuck's card, an m&m ad card, a poster from a magazine), a personal letter, something handmade...it will be loved and appreciated. I don't give hearts because someone send me extras - if I have the feeling that someone read my profile and put effort into the swap, it deserves a heart :)

♣ Postcards (esp. goldfish, (sting)rays, Tinkerbell, Sesame Street, M&Ms, Absolut Vodka, Starbuck's & coffee in general, Ratatouille, Finding Nemo, ladybugs, b&w, Audrey Hepburn, Barbapapa, movies & TV shows (especially with James McAvoy) rubberducks)

♣ stickers

♣ Notepads & nice and unusual post its

♣ everything with Maneki Neko/lucky cats

♣ Mugs

♣ Totebags

♣ stationary

♣ Candy / coffee / chocolate / chewing gum

♣ deco tape / washi tape

♣ everything about/with M&M, Starbuck's, Absolut Vodka, Finding Nemo & (Sting)rays (especially plushies), James McAvoy, my favourite TV-Shows, rubberducks, Sesame Street - free stuff like empty gift cards, postcards, posters are absolutely welcome

♣ beauty & bath products (vegan & organic products)

♣ fridge magnets

♣ things for scrapbooking/smash books

♣ elongated coins/pressed pennies

♣ notecards/swapcards

♣ copics (I got a teal-coloured one now *yay) and sharpies as they are really hard to get here or any similiar pens...I don't really write with gel pens

♣ jewelry ( I like beads, pearls, paua, bronze)

♣ I recently started weight watchers...so foreign products would be loved

♣ I tried Cool Aid and would love to try more...same with Swiss Miss (all kinds without marshmellows)...I love dove chocolate and milky way midnight which I can't get here in Germany and I would love to try Twizzlers (I guess I watched too much Warehouse 13^^)...I'm also in love with Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf - no shops in Germany :(

♣ stampers (clear and wood mounted ones)

♣ I fell in love with Tim Holtz products...another thing that is hard to get here...everything that looks similiar or punch outs or something like that is very welcome

♣ Ephemera

♣ everything London and Eiffel Tower related

I love: coffee (I'm addicted^^), letters & postcards, crafts, orchids, hibiscus flowers, frangipani flowers, lucky cats, (sting)rays, having a good chat, sunshine, books, movies, fish, being creative, spending time with my friends, foreign candy (especially american), quotes, adding little gifts to my letters, hunting in 1€-shops, movies with James McAvoy, jewelry

...colourwise I like black, wine-red, teal, cream-white, fuchsia...in general I like all colours depending on the purpose^^

I like everything floral, ornamental, shabby, boho, gypsy, vintage...

Things I really wanna do this year:

♥ starting a smash book

♥ starting my own book with travelling sheets

♥ doing my first ATCs

♥ filling a jar with paperstars

As it seems impossible for me to find deco tape and other scrapbooking/smash book stuff as well as elongated coins here, I would love to find someone who's willing to do a private swap with me. I'm also looking for (instant) coffee trades, candy and penpal supplies...or something from my "I collect"-section :)

I like less

There isn't really anything I truly hate...but I'm not so fond of:

♠ candy with gelatin (->vegetarian) or alcohol...I prefer pure milk chocolate

♠ raisins (I secretly call them dead grapes^^)

♠ artifical peach scent

♠ beautyproducts with parabens & mineral oil

♠ leather & real fur

♠ neon-colours (I'm a summer child, but colourwise I'm more the autumn-type^^)

Comment: Well it finally arrived! It turned out that the package actually went by ship mail rather then air (lol) and unfortunately the nougat chocolates you put it melted - there was bits of them all through the package (might be worth putting them in a little bag next time to prevent this from happening). But nothing really got damaged thankfully. The ink pads & stamps are gorgeous, love the Copic marker and can't wait to make something from the flower-y paper & chipboard. My favorite thing though.. was the postcard. Hands down the most lovely wolf postcard I've ever seen! Thank you so much!! :D
Response: Gosh, I'm so glad it finally arrived and you liked the things I chose for you. Nougat chocolate was a last minute idea and obviously not my most brilliant one...*lol...Tushita cards are always great, but I fell in love with this one, too. I keep my eyes open for wolf postcards... :)

Comment: Hi Sandra. Thank you for every goodies you sent to me: teas, pens, spices, toothpaste and lip balm ;) I loved the map flag pen from Berlim. It´s different! I love your hand-lettering too, so beautiful ;)
Response: Looks like our mail-connection is really quick! I'm glad you like everything! I was so excited to find that pen in Berlin...it's really funny...after I packed the box, I saw so many multifunctional pens...while it was really hard to find some when I went shopping for you^^

Comment: Yes, I must admit, that I was bit disappointed when I saw, that my partner was from Germany too. But now that I have received this package... I could not have bought something more fitting myself. All the items are such, that I have never seen around here in the 1e-shops. I love the glow-in-dark fairy. The hair pins are very Lolita, and I will for sure use them a lot. The notebook is the type I have been searching. Hard. Small enough, exactly. And how practical is the pen - I usually keep like ten with me, because I all the time loose them or it takes so much to find one from the deeps of my bag. This notebook even fits to a pocket. 3D-card is cool. Ribbons in christmas-colors and the tape are things I should have in my supply, but for some reason I have not managed to get any. Now I don´t need to. I boycott Néstle because of their milk-policy, but in other hand, I have nothing positive to say about that company, so even without that big reason, there would be enough small ones. I will enjoy cup of the hot chocolate already today. All together, thank you very much for the thoughtful envelope. It´s like pre-birthdaygift.
Response: I would have felt the same way...*lol...I think getting something from a foreign country you can't get here is part of the swapping excitement...but now I'm sooo relieved that you liked my package! *yay I When I had a first glance at your profile, I thought it's going to be a challenge...especially as I thought my small town doesn't offer that many great items compared to Munich but I could have easily bought a million more things once I got started ;) I've just recently read about their milk policy, I should boycott them, too...

You can write german, but don´t expect me to answer in geman, since I am too lazy to get the grammar right. Shame on me.
