Hello there :-)

If you haven't received a swap from me or you are still waiting for a rating, please let me know! It's not in my intention to confuse, hurt or even betray my penpals! So just contact me and I will correct things, whenever a mistake might happen. I will also re-send the swap at once, if necessary.

In return, please do me the same favour and let me know if there are any problems on your side, like a delay in the send-date or lockdown or such things. I'm mostly rating generously, as long, as I can see you put some effort in your swap (for example: I love decorated envelopes XD). And even if this sometimes lack: Swapping is just a hobby and for fun and life can be too busy from time to time, so don't worry. The most important thing for both sides is to have fun.

About Me

A little bit about myself...

I'm Maxi, 30 years old and from Germany. So my mothertongue is German and I'm working to improve my English (while on the other hand I'm about to forget everything I've ever learned in French).

I'm single, have one older sister, but no children and I like to be aunt and babysit once in a while. :-) Finally I'm living in my new flat, where pets are allowed (I always wished for a cat), but than came the second lockdown in Germany and things got delayed. (Dogs are cool, too, but cats are far better! XD)

I like to decorate my letters and put some goodies in, but I'm not used to the fat snail mail I can see here in many swaps. It will probably take its time, until I will try this myself... I'm also far more interested in letters, to be honest. The longer the letter, the better. ;-) I'm also okay with sticker flakes and the dutest or most beautiful always come to some extra box, where I put all the stuff I use for decorating my diary. g - Thanks to the second lockdown and the lack of other spare time activities I might started to get addiccted to stationary, stickers, Washi tapes and such things.

Favorite Music

I like Heavy Metal, Pagan, Steampunk und something called Neue Deutsche Härte (and from time to time songs from musicals or Disney). Some favourite singers/bands are:

Favorite Books

That's a lot! I'm a bookworm and love fiction, history novels, classics, murder mystery, thriller... almost anything, aside these typical "How to imprive your life"-books about how to be more hapy, more active, sleep better and so on and aside from love stories.

  • Horror short stories, like "The Vampyre" by Polidori
  • the "Sherlock Holmes"-short stories by Doyle
  • "The war of the Flowers" (Williams) ...

I also love mangas! I read comics from time to time, too, but I always prefer mangas over it. My favourites are: - "Angel Sanctuary" (Yuki) - "Shaman King" (Takei) - "Pandora Hearts" (Mochizuki) - "The case study of Vanitas" (Mochizuki) - Sailor Moon" (Takeuchi -> It's the best!) - "That time I got reincarnated as a slime" (Fuse)

Good to know for swaps

I'm an easy-going person and even when I don't get exactly what I like, I will still give you a heart, when I can see you tried your best in a swap. Things I don't like, I will reuse in other swaps and I don't have any allergies you need to keep in mind.

I also don't care if you send whole sticker sheets or sheets you cut in half or single stickers. I like them all. I prefer PCs to be send naked (without an envelope), but I'm fine with one also. Only some highlights would be...

... Harry Potter: I like many characters, such as Harry, Hermione, Dumbledore, Malfoy and Snape. In terms of houses it highly depends an my daily mood: On good days I'm according to tests in Ravenclaw, but on cynic ones in Sliytherin.

... tea: I got a lot of chamomille tea lately, so I would prefer to have a break from it, because it will take some time to use it up. ^^°

... TV/book/movie-characters in general: I like Sherlock and Moriaty, Sailor Moon and Sailor Saturn and Sailor Pluto, Dipper and Bill, Steven universe and his mother Rose/pink diamond (but Spinell and White are cool, too), Aang and Zuko, Conan Edogawa, Luz and Amity and Eda, Spiderman and Loki, Batman and the Joker, Vanitas, Oz and Gil and many more. My favourite pokémon are bulbasaur, psyduck, Mew, Mewtwo and wooloo (yeah, I've been grown up with the first generation g).


USAFwife rated for G: Movies for Halloween! on Oct 24, 2021
Comment: Can you believe I've never seen 'A Nightmare on Elm Street'? I did watch the 'movies that made us' episode on the movie on Netflix recently, but right now, it's a hard movie to find for rent/viewing. I'll have to see it soon, though! The "Sleepy Hollow" that you mentioned - I really like that one too! :) "The Headless Horseman" is one of my all time favorite stories/movies (I had an odd childhood, didn't i?) and I thought that movie was a good version! There's a TV series here called Sleepy Hollow as well - it's pretty good, overall. The writers really updated the story a lot, it's hard to explain. :) Thanks for sharing your movies!

Comment: Thanks for your little papers with happy thoughts! I hope I can leave them a long time closed (that I don't need it!! ;)
Stachel rated for ESO: Send Happy Thoughts round 2 on Oct 20, 2021
Comment: Thank you very much for your happy thoughts 😊❤️ Ich habe bereits in zwei Situationen in mein kleines Happy-Thoughts-Säckchen gegriffen und etwas gutes daraus mitnehmen können. Ich freue mich sehr, deine zehn Gedanken mit in diesen Pool an Lebensfreude schmeißen zu können. 🤗
Stachel rated for ESO: A letter to my younger self. on Oct 20, 2021
Comment: Wow, so ein schöner, persönlicher Brief und trotz der Schwere des Inhalts hinterlässt er in mir ein friedvolles und positives Gefühl. Ich ziehe den Hut vor dir, vor dem, was du in der Vergangenheit überstanden hast und vor deiner ansteckend lebensbejahenden Art und Weise, damit umzugehen und auch in die Zukunft zu blicken. ♥️ Ich bin mir sicher, dass du eine wirklich wunderschöne Seele hast. 🤗
Comment: Hi Maxi! My goodness, you really filled my my envelope with goodies upon goodies. I love each & everything you sent. You are too sweet. Thank you for the sweet card & note. Xo- Loreta
Response: Dear Loreta, you're welcome! :-) I had fun putting this swap together and I wish you a happy Halloween soon! Have a great day! 🎃👻🍬

MuggleMom rated for Harry Potter letter #64 on Oct 12, 2021
Comment: You write the most tender letters!! 💖 This time you didn't break my heart💔 like the last letter from Snape to Lily 💗 Love the paper the letter was on - did you make/cut it yourself? And the envie was gorgeous also! I think Hermione is quite ready to leave the US...I know I need a break from here, LOL!!! COVID be over already!! And you inspired my next HP letter - Ron throwing an epic party - I am stealing your idea!! xxMuggleMom
Response: Hello ^.^ So glad I could nail it for you. I really love these swap ideas and I'm curious how the party went. I could already imagine the men standing over some pretty expensive things, totally broken and Ron trying to convince them, to not tell his wife about it! XD - Oh yes, I love this paper, but this version was brought in a surprisingly cheap paper store, who has some gems from time to time. *.* Stay safe and have a great time!
Comment: It made it here!
Response: You're welcome. ^.^

Comment: Ganz lieben Dank, Maxi, für die tolle Überraschung! Die Dresdner Essenzen sind super. Werde es mir demnächst mal - vielleicht schon heute - in der Badewanne gemütlich machen.
Response: Freut mich, dass sie wohlbehalten bei dir angekommen sind. ^.^ Ich liebe diese Gerüche! BleibÄ schön gesund und alles Gute.
Comment: Your swap finally arrived! wow, is the mail slow! haha - but it's here, that's the important part. :) I know of a few of the books your listed - isn't Sherlock Holmes great? :) Thanks for sharing. Happy reading :)

Comment: Thank you for you package. I loved all the beautiful things you included.

Loosefolia rated for R&W: What I'm reading postcard on Oct 2, 2021
Comment: I've read Anne Elliot before! I believe it's also titled Persuasion? I remember relating to the story so much because it reminds me of my ex-boyfriend.... :" Anyways, I love it, too! <3
Response: Yeah, first i thought the title is "Anne Elliot" in English, too, because it doesn't make sense in my eyes to choose a totally diffrent title... but by now I learnt only the German title is "Anne Elliot" and the English one is "Persuasion". XD

RealRhinoMan rated for ESO: September Tea Swap on Oct 1, 2021
Comment: It's lovely to meet a fellow autumn fan. It's my favourite season! Thank you for the teas.
Response: You're welcome! ^.^ - It's always great to meet someone, who also loves autumn the most. XD
iolair rated for R&W What I read in August Snail Mail on Sep 30, 2021
Comment: Hi Maxi, thank you for the nice chatty letter and the goodies (the Hamtaro page is so cute and I <3 Ponyo!). Some very interesting reading - funnily enough, I'm currently reading a book about a serial killer atm! I'm also curious about the webcomics you listed. I used to read webcomics more often and for some reason fell out of the habit. But there's some really creative people out there, I should have a look online again :)
Response: Hello ^.^ I'm glad it matches your taste and especially Ponyo is such a cute movie! *g* First I've read Dojinshi (Fancomics about my favouite animes and mangas) and slowly I drifted into the webcomic section, too. ^.^
Comment: Thank you for all the great tuck-ins.
Response: You're welcome! ^.^
Itti rated for ESO: Send Happy Thoughts 🥰 on Sep 28, 2021
Comment: Love your happy thoughts! Really thoughtful and original.And nice letter! I'm with your family though, I think pumpkin in a pie is weird haha! I much prefer it in savoury dishes.
Response: Enjoy! ^-^ My grandmother loves "sour pumpkin" as dessert, but even as an adult I still can't smell it, let alone eat it! XD
lovetherain rated for G: Haunted dolls on Sep 23, 2021
Comment: Thank you Maxi, for the letter. Loved your stationery with the red foxes! I agree, haunted dolls creep me out so much. I've heard of Robert, but doubt I'd ever want to actually see him in person. I've about bad things happening to people who've seen him.
Response: Yes, I can't understand how people can know of such things and still think: "Nah, I'm staying in this house/with this creepy doll and see what will happen." ^^° Thanks for the heart! And have a great day.
