I'm offline for a while - holiday! :) I'll get back to you as soon as, well, I'll be back. :)
I've had my name changed - for not swap-bot related reasons. :) So no worries. My old one used to be naurwen.
I may not join as many swaps in the upcoming couple of months. I'll be helping a family member financially and there may not be any room for buying crafts items and spending lots of money on postage. So I'll have to be very selective.
If you haven't received a swap from me and the due date's running out - please contact me. I always send my swaps and things can get lost in the mail. Also if you're interested in a private swap, contact me. If I can do it I'll be most definitely up to it. :) WATCH OUT FOR MY CURRENT SWAPS:
... and of course feel free to join. ;)
About Journal Swaps: I’ve been flaked a couple of times before, especially on those journal swaps I’ve both attended and hosted. That’s why I don’t really plan to join or host any further of them anymore. I might consider doing one or another as a private swap, but then you should be someone I've known for a while. I'm sorry about this, but considering the fact that I haven't hosted or joined that many and that many have gone wrong… :(
Medieval Faires & similar historical events, history (especially ancient, Celtic, Viking, Medieval), myths & legends, ancient sites, crafts, drawing, reading, nature, movies, pilates, irish dance, archery, fantasy art, wolves, cooking & baking, paganism & wicca, herbs, Ireland, UK, Paris, travelling, PS2, LOTR & the Hobbit, and I love the Twilight-saga (team vampire but wolves are cool, too! :)),...... and much more I guess. :) I also like fairytales, but more the old type and not the too fluffy ones. Nothing against Disney and similar, but I would only join certain swaps which are themed as such. Some of my favourite fairytales are Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, ...

I love trying new things. :)
AKA What I definitely wouldn't mind to receive :)))
Pagan / Wiccan Items:
I LOVE natural incense and oils (also selfmade, of course!), crystals, natural things in general. I'm mainly interested in Celtic pagan beliefs, Avalon, ogham, runes, herblore, Lugh and Maeve, also Brighid, Herne, Danu, Venus, Aíne, Gaia, ... (kind of in that order). Recommendations are just as welcome, be it for books, webpages, or whatever else! :) Here be a very special recommendation from myself... a book by a very dear friend of mine which I quite simply love: The Temple Of The Twelve
As for animals, I love (especially) wolves.
Cosmetics / Bath / etc.:
I must say that me and my skin really prefer natural products if that's any possible. I know sometimes they're not available and it's not that I'm being picky, but I DO feel the difference. I love nice scents - many types, just don't like too overpowering one. If in doubt - ask me. :) I don't need whole loads of shower gels as I seem to get them whenever someone decides to give me bath products, so please no piles of them sent my way? ;) In fact I like using nice natural soaps even more than shower gels. If you know those shops: L'Occitane and Lush, those are for example products I love. No need to send me exactly those at all, that's just to give you an idea as they're international. I do love handmade stuff by YOU just as much! :) All that goes for all such products… bath, shampoo, body lotion, perfumes, etc. Now as for make up: I'd rather not receive any and if you really want to send me something - please ask me first. I do wear make up but there are many things I don't use at all.
Wishlist! :) (also see my Etsy and Amazon favourites link higher above ;))
• Anything to do with Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit - basically Middle Earth :) handmade or bought - all is welcome. Love the elves, love the hobbitses, Gandalf is great, of course Aragorn for king! :) And so on... heeheeh
• Basically anything I really like… see favourites :)
• feathers! From birds of prey, owls, crows, ravens, ... of course that doesn't mean that anyone has to hunt down birds for me and pluck the feathers off them! You know what I mean. ;)
• some nice and old metal keys :)
• some nice and old other interesting things :)
I’m looking for Crafts stuff out of this reason: There are certain things that I can’t get here, either not at all or no nice ones anyway… If anyone would like to help me out – I’d swap. :) Maybe I can get something you’d like or maybe I could make something for you. PM me?
What I’m currently looking for (crafts stuff and others):
• gem stones / crystal beads of any kind (this can also mean a gem stone bracelet you don't need anymore - I will happily cut it apart and take the beads ;))
• scrabble tiles, dominoes or domino-sized tiles and similar - basically all that you can use to make pendants from AND those little hangers that you glue onto them - can't get them here.
• Nice ribbons and lace
• Embellishments in general
• Nice beads in general, big, small, anything nice. :)
• Anything pagan – out of interest and I may craft with it anyway :)
• Nice fabric bits and pieces (no matter how big, ok, not microscopic… :D)
• I LOVE essential oils, I also love oil blends – if there’s anything you want to get rid of, yes please. Just no synthetic ones, please.
• Pens… and such… anything special I can use for drawing in general, drawing on ATCs, decorating a bit here and there…
• Fairy and fantasy stickers that are NOT Disney
• Elfquest… I love Elfquest…
• Nice paper’s always welcome as I do quite some paper crafting
• Journals – because I love them and use them quite a lot.
• Anything on or from ancient pagan sites (I don’t mean you to steal anything out of there though! LOL)
I respect other people, their interests, their believes, etc. and I expect them to treat me the same way. :)
Please don't send me any religious leaflets, be they christian or otherwise. I'm pagan and I really don't need to be preached upon. I respect other religions, so please respect mine, too. Thank you! :)
Please, NO incense sticks or cones for me. My eyes are a bit sensitive and prefer natural incense (blends) - they don't deal well with smoke from sticks or cones.
If you'd like to do a sweets / chocolates swap with me - I'm up to it, BUT I don't want to do too many swaps like this or receive loads in other swaps. I love chocolate, I love some sweets, but there's only so much I can eat without getting headaches (a slight allergy to some...) and I'd just have to give the things away. :( I'm mentioning this because what with me being in Switzerland, people tend to think CHOCOLATE... LOL
Music... I don't really like rap, too electronic sound and jazz.
Other things and the likes...: I love faeries, but mainly the bit more grown up sort... and I'm sorry, but please don't send me any Disney's Tinkerbell goodies - nothing against her but I've kind of had enough - because most people seem to assume that because I like faeries I must be totally into Tinkerbell and for a time I got showered in stickers and other things and well... :)
... about sending me something, making something for me - just ask! :) If you're unsure whether I'd really like something, simply ask. I'm online quite often so replying shouldn't be a problem (unless there's an I'll be absent message in Important Information). If you're in a pagan-themed swap with me and are unsure about what to send me or what not - ask, too. I didn't quite list details about pagan / wiccan interests here as I'm not sure how relevant they will be on here - depending on how many swaps there are which are themed like that I might change that at some point. :D
