About Me

March 8th 2022: Will take a break from swapbot, when my last swap on my Dashboard is done.

And the people stayed home.

And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still.

And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows.

And the people began to think differently. And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.

And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.

profile-update: February 2022


Heya, my name is Moni. Well actually Monika, but since most of the people wrote Monica and all of my friends and family call me Moni anyway, I decided to change it in my address-box too. :-)

I work in a library (since 1993) and enjoy it, although I don't read as much as I used to read. Being together (since February 14th 2006) with the love of my life @LillyLupin formerly DarthD and I'm really happy! :-) ♥♥♥ We got legally married on November 5th 2021. ♥♥♥ We share the same address of course, but it's all sorted out with Rachel Johnson!

We don't have any pets (would love to live with a dog someday!), but our balcony totally belongs to the birds! :D We feed them all year round: blue and great tits, eurasian jays, magpies and now crows, doves and woodpeckers are visiting the whole day. We love to watch them, when we're sitting in our living-room, or working in the kittchen. :-)

Me in a nutshell: Introvert philanthrop with misanthropic tendencies.

No, thank you!!!

  • war
  • weapons of all kinds
  • please don't send me any (paper) bits and bops!!! I have so many papers for crafting, I could open a store! And please no buttons and knick knacks!!!
  • no loose memo sheets or sticker flakes!
  • no scrapbooking-supplies too, please!!!

- no stickers, or notecards (I have more than enough!!!)

Extras in general!

I hate tests on animals!!! So I try to avoid those products!

About hearts:

I don't give hearts for extras! I'll give a heart when I feel/see that the swap was made with love! :-) You can earn a heart if you write a friendly note (including adressing me with my name and not only a hello), or fold/prepare/cut your letter or other stuff properly and not hastily or careless like you do for a school subject you don't like! Send something nice! It is really sad to have to write something like this, that should be required! :-/

'Stolen' from my sweetie's @LillyLupin profile:

I don't like scary stuff, so no zombies, evil clowns (or clowns in general actually), horror, splatter or anything else that gives me nightmares

I don't like brutality. Neither in real life nor in fiction. My mind cannot comprehend what people do to each other (or animals) for absurd or no reason! And I find nothing entertaining about it to watch it


Communication is the key!!!

If you can't send your swap in time, please tell me! I have no problem with it, as we all have lifes outside swapbot. But before the deadline ends!!!

packages and re-swapping:

I recycle bubble-envies and boxes. Means, if they are not torn I use them again to protect the environment. You can do this too when you send to me. :-)

I also don't wrap the swaps I send, in nice papers. They may look nice, but I think, this is not necessary. Another way to protect the environment. So you don't have to do that either in the swaps you send me! That doesn't mean, that I don't wrap them up carefully if necessary!

If you don't like/or can't use something I've sent, you can reswap/regift it. I too will give things away, that I can't use or don't need. With that said, I will never claim that I created something, that I didn't!!! When I pass handmade things to someone else, that are not mine, I will say so and I will never send them as a replacement of my part of the swap, but as an extra!

I'll angel all of my swaps I host myself.

I love:



A animals (my favourites: crab, dragon, bat, wolf, sloth, snail, blue and great tit, robin, hippopotamus, octopus, marabou, kiwi, magpie, bumblebee, duck, especially baby ducks, dog, starfish, sea horse, hedgehog, fox, turtle, birds, animals from New Zealand) Jane Austen, Ellen Auerbach, autumn, astronomy

We met on May 8th 2017, here in Cologne and she and her husband are so sweet!!! @denimblu14 @rexypants ), Santiago de Compostela (I want to walk the Camino one day!), sitting on our lovely balcony, San Francisco, ships

W Walking barefoot where ever I can, wind, Wikipedia, writing (poetry and letters), wet wood, Wallis Simpson the late Duchess of Windsor (I collect everything about/with her!)


I believe some people like them sent naked and some, like me and many others, unwritten in an envie. I will respect and send both ways. I always take a look at my partner's profile or ask and I don't judge anyone about the way she/he likes it. :-)

I'm not into handmade-pcs!

I prefer to get my postcards unwritten in an envie (unless the swap-description says otherwise). Thank you! :-)

Comment: Why did you break my heart with today's owl post??? I kept trying to work out who was the writer and was not prepared for it to be Teddy! You are very wicked to make me sober up...well thankfully it's Friday and I'm going to go get a few pints of Butterbeer to make me cheery again. I do forgive you just a bit for the neat HP playing cards you enclosed. Never seen them before and now I want them all! LOL. Thanks Moni for hosting one of the most creative swaps - I look forward to each and every one of them! xxMuggleMom
