About Me

Paris: you are in my thoughts.

Hello :)

August 31st 2015:

Hello! My ratings are not perfect anymore, because I was in hospital for 5 weeks in May/June 2015. I am still not as strong and fit as I wish, but things are getting back to normal day by day.

I have resent everything that was still un-received. If there is still a swap or a rating missing please message me!

I am so terribly sorry for all of this. I will fix it!

Wow, already two years and 252 swaps, wohoo :) - I love this swap-bot so much. I am really happy to be a part of it!

I am working nine to five at day and adoring paper at night. I have a job full of all-day-long-communication. I love my job very much , but I really appreciate a few quiet minutes a day :)

Cut outs and images are a great fun to send and receive, to cut and paste. I love the texture of every paper and the sound of it. And how it looks :)

Letters, mail art and everyday-ephemera are a great pleasure to me.

And travelling, reading, gardening and spending quality-time with my almost-husband, too. :)


Favorite Crafts

✄ Mail-Art. I love it.

✄ Journaling

✄ collages

✄ Origami.

✄ everything with paper, I suppose.

✄ making my own envelopes.

✄ crocheting and embroidery.

✄ and so on :)


What I like.

Terry Pratchett. Jane Austen. Jasper Fforde.

charley harper.

address labels.

stamps. postage, rubber,un/mounted,... I love them all :)

ephemera. everyday-ephemera and postal-themed, too.

airmail - theme.

classic Paddington Bear.



bicycles :)

Richard Scarry.

first snow of the year.

flow magazine.

flow weekly :)

post-its. pencils.

small zip-bags.

garden gnomes.




temporary wishes: Clipper tea, pocket letter sleeves, Belle & Boo, anything Moomin and everything with an old school-telephone on it :)


and finally...

Do I have dislikes? Yes, of course I have. Will I list them? No.

I have met wonderful people here at swap-bot. They were carefuI with their swaps and put so much effort in them. I was happy all day long because of their thoughtfulness and kindness, although the swap might not be exactly my taste.

And I have met people, who share my taste exactly. But maybe they did not put that much effort in their swaps. Maybe they forgot to put a little note in the swap. Or maybe they just have had a really busy life. I respect that, too.

For me swap-bot is about thoughtfulness and inspiration, about humour, kindness and art. I maybe am more a dinosaur-kind of woman and less a fairy-one. But if you put a litte winged fairy on kingkongs' shoulders on your mailart: this fairy would be the most treasured fairy on the planet.

To be honest: there is no chance I would appreciate a swap which is against people (how they look like, whom they love, where they live,..) or animals. But anything put together with respect, care and humour is very much appreciated.

Please send just undamaged things. That would be really nice :)

just for me:

Vielen, lieben Dank für den hübschen handgefertigten Umschlag für "Random flat envie - Pay it forward", angefüllt mit lauter schönen Sachen. Es war sehr nett von Dir, mein Profil so genau zu lesen. Daher habe ich mich über alles sehr gefreut, auch und besonders über die Weihnachtskarten, die schon jetzt für eine vorweihnachtliche Stimmung sorgen.
