Happy April & Happy Spring :)
I still just can send very flat mail. Bubblemailers get returned to me or do not arrive at all. I was informed at the Post office that it is better to send as a package... I will do that for a resend, but otherwise I will stay with flat mail until our new-normal life is here. .
My word for 2021: briskness - Frische
Mail seems still to be slow...You have not been rated by me? Then I have not received your item! I always rate the same day as I receive them!!
We open our p.o. Box at the weekend and then I rate all mail in one go.
are you missing mail from me? Then please send me a message!!
last time rated and received:: April 10th
Somebody asked if I am a smoker, because of this picture. I am a non-smoker :) But I love these Dick Bruna Illustrations from the 60ies and 70ies :)
All swaps I host are senders choice. All envelopes are prepared, have a date on it and need just to be addressed. This is for the worst case. When I am fresh :) then I do not use this envelopes and make personal ones. I had do learn this the hard way. So please be not upset, when from time to time there is no personal attach to it.
And second: I love to make my envelopes out of magazine pages, catalogues or calendars. This is my happy place. Listening tto Audiobooks and make them. If you do not like these envelopes, then please tell me beforehand, I will use a regular then. This is not about the money. It is about my happy place and my tiny-step-a-day for the environment.
MailArt. I love it.
Journaling - colourful and playful :), full of childrensbooks-illustrations, postcards and fun quotes on the left side, on the right side I journal what comes to mind :) (so not vintage, more "oh, there is another dino-page" haha)

Currently: I am looking for grid washitape, stickiistickers and Moomin-things. Folding 1000 papercranes with much needed patterned Origamipaper, 7x7 cm (under 3 inches) preferred, but all sizes are welcome!! Green tea with coconut *
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.
For me swap-bot is about thoughtfulness and inspiration, about humour, kindness and art. I maybe am more into dinosaurs and less into fairies. But if you put a little winged fairy on a dinosaurs' 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 kidfriendly things. That would be really nice :)

If you are my swap partner and are a collector of teatags or empty teabags, please let me know. I tuck as many in our swap as I can. or we could do a private swap. I am always open for a swap for other lightweight things like used stamps (preferred) or airmail labels, stickers or your favourite vegan recipe :)
