About Me

Hey there! I'm Ana, a 38-year-old living in the north of Spain.

I'm all about cozying up with a good book, fueled by endless cups of coffee. You'll usually find me with knitting needles or a crochet hook in hand, accompanied by my two adorable cats. I'm also a big fan of international TV shows/series, so I'm always eager to hear your recommendations – please share your favorites from your country with me!

When it comes to sending letters, I like to add a personal touch – think questions, curated playlists, stickers, quotes, tea bags, and other little surprises.

I always mark my swaps as 'Sent' as soon as I take them to the post office, and I always rate and leave feedback once I receive an envie.

Please, if you ever don't receive my envie in a swap, I ask that you send me a message. If something gets lost along the way, I'll be happy to resend it.

During the day, I'm a psychology grad turned web developer. I love technology, but I'm here to reconnect with handmade crafts and the analog world.

I enjoy role-playing games, especially investigative ones like Call of Cthulhu, but also medieval fantasy ones like Dungeons and Dragons and other narrative-driven games.

Random things that bring joy to my life: cats, geek glasses, people with very long hair, feminism and LGTB+ rights, the sound of ocean waves during beach walks, Spanish omelets, silence, origami, bubbles, lollypops and daisies, purple things, hiding under blankets, a good night's sleep and all kinds of cacti.


Here are a few things I'd love to receive (of course, these are only suggestions in case you are out of ideas!):

  • Zines (made by you or others)
  • Bookplates
  • Cool stamps from your country or other countries (I've recently started collecting them)
  • Lists of your fave TV shows, movies or books
  • Tarot cards, if that's your thing (it is mine!)
  • Origami
  • Cute paper and sticky notes
  • Decorative Washi tape
  • Maps
  • Coasters from your favorite places
  • Foolproof recipes (I'm not much of a chef!)
  • Stencils
  • Magazine cutouts for collages
  • Small notebooks/journals
  • Sweet treats
  • Pretty pictures that catch your eye
  • Stickers
  • Art supplies for my journal (like diecuts, rubber stamped papers...)
  • ATCs
  • Bookmarks
  • Eyelets and brads
  • Enamel pins
  • Paper clips
  • Postcards
  • Little trinkets
  • Nice buttons
  • Anything else you'd like to share or create!


Let's dive into this swapping adventure together!

Comment: Thanks for ur generosity. I have the same set of stamps that u used on the dictionary paper. It will definitely come in handy. Love ur choices of washi. I'm so curious abt the note and address u printed. It's so unique. What did you use?
Response: I'm glad you liked the stamps and washi samles. For the note and address, I used the Cricut Joy, but instead of using the "official" pen, I used a regular pen. I'm happy you found it interesting!
Response: Thanks for your rating! :)

Newbie Friendly - Profile Hello #7

Hello, Ana!!

I have been to Spain last year for field trips! The place i choose to research for this class is Santiago de Compostela. Really want to re-visit. Do you have any recommendations of beautiful church in Northern Spain ?

Have a great day -Autumn

Newbie Friendly - Profile Hello #7 Hello Ana, We are preparing for winter here in the southern part of the state of Maine in the US. We typically have temperatures averaging 0C with snow every few days, totaling about 2m. Of course, it doesn't get that deep as some melts and it packs down. They get more inland but we are 8 km from the ocean, which tempers it some. I am wondering if this is at all like your winters as we are at about the same latitude. I look forward to winter as I enjoy snowshoeing and am not bothered by the cold. I also feed the birds and like to watch them through the window. I am most happy that we have had five different species of woodpecker for several years now. In the summer, I keep flowering plants and milkweed for the hummingbirds and butterflies. I like working outside, around the yard and in the woods. I volunteer with the local conservation group maintaining trails. I am retired and have grown more conservative than I used to be but I am still politically active. I used to be active in the anti-Vietnam War and civil rights movements. Now I am work for Human, Women's, and LGBTQ+ Rights. I'm pretty new to Swap-bot too. I came for postcard swaps but have tried and enjoyed other swaps too. I am currently working on my first Zine. I like the crafting but most enjoy "meeting" the people. Best Wishes, Neal NRGordon

Newbie Friendly Profile Hello #6

As I sip my coffee, in which I've recently become addicted to, I wonder if it's the maturing into my 30's that has changed my taste towards something that I used to loathe....for now, I leave you with a quote I found to share, "A cup of coffee shared with a friend is happiness tasted and time well spent."

Newbie Friendly Profile Hello #6

I hope all is well with you and your family. I am in Ottawa, Ontario. You are going to love swap bot. Just be careful it can become an addiction! I have 3 cats and 1 dog. My cats are PJ, Peim and Raccoon and my dogs name is Aspen. I love travelling. I spent a week in Cambodia this past September. I have also done a portion of the el Camino trail, just over 300 Kms. I also like to crochet. I'm working on a few projects for Christmas although I can't follow a pattern to save my life :) Wishing you all the best. & Catina
