About Me

NEWS NOV. 18: I'm on vacation and will return on Nov 17. I won't be able to rate until then, but send swaps from Portugal.

My name's Kira. My age? Forever 29 ;) I'm from northern Bavaria in Germany. I work as a social worker. I live in a historic palace. I'm a big lover of mountains, forests, all mountaineering activities, orchids, the color pink, butterflies and the universe. Let the sunshine in :D


hiking, mountaineering & rock climbing & bouldering, LARP (live action role-play), Yoga, surfing waves, sewing, genealogy, traveling, reading & writing (poetry/fiction), playing Blues/slide guitar, dancing (Burlesque, Rockabilly Jive, Blues, Charleston), swing music & 50's era / Rockabilly, astronomy, going out with friends, cooking & baking (I'm vegan)

Favorite Crafts

I can't live without my planner and love creating (and buying^^) tons of stuff for it.

Mail art - e.g. lovely envelopes, pocket letters and flip books - make my heart beat faster.

I like creating stuff with my Cricut.

I recently fell in love with creating Zines!

HelenG6 rated for IWTS: Half & Half Swap #2 on Nov 8, 2018
Comment: Thank you for the variety of tapes sent. Squirrels are great to see, but don't see that much tapes in the craft stores where I mostly get them. I order online for different washi, or go crazy with the same olds at the craft stores I see. I love Fall, my favourite season. I use to hike when single, over a dozen years ago and hope to get into it when daughter will grow up and schedule less busy. Have a great Fall!

Comment: I received your lovely washi envelope with the cool tapes you chose for each of the letters (watercolor, animal, stars, hearts, & ice cream), along with the extras! :) I know what you mean - even though some of the tapes aren't really true washi, they are still pretty! Did you make the card you sent them in? It was neat too.

Unimportant question purely from curiosity: your zine envelope arrived without postage. Does this mean the stamp fell off along the way, or do you have some option in Germany where you can pay to mail but they don't affix a stamp?

Just read your first paragraph - I sent you a pm abut being rating. Can understand now.

What a great package. I put the stocking stuffer in my stocking and plan to send the post cards to my Mother who is in a nursing home. Her parents came from Austria and I know she will love them. Many thanks

Thank you so much for the beautiful envelope of pink! I love everything, and I'm so grateful for the address labels. May I ask where you found the mermaid graphic? I'd love to make some matching stationery! Thank you again, for being such a fab Angel host <3
