About Me

i am very close to nature and love being outside. i hate empty mailboxes and am a passionate pen-paller. i like traveling a lot and have a thing for planes (still hoping to get on the a-380 soon). my heart beats a country rhythm and I don't really feel right in big cities. It's fun for a trip, but i'd never wanna live there. i m a freelance photographer specialized on animals, but i am open to everything.

I am a TOTAL introvert an sometimes I can be a grouch. . I rather write a letter than make a phone call. I rather dig in the dirt than use make up. I don't like crowds or many (which means more than 1) people around me at the same time; but feel awesome if I am surrounded by lots of animals. I love tattoos. I ride my own motorcycle. I believe in love and would do a lot for my loved ones. I get annoyed fast. Often, I feel alienated from other people - it's always been like that.

on my swaps - i usually send them out pretty early, but i always do send them out. so if u re waiting on something and think it should ve arrived already, please contact me before giving a bad rating. i really take this serious and do not flake. i like making mailboxes happy. :)

if u have any questions feel free to message me.

Favorite Crafts

3-D sheets (people from germany and probably europe in general should know what i mean - the one for crafting 3-d cards) -- rubber and clear stamps -- stickers -- paper -- embellishments, gemstones, beads,... -- ribbons -- ephemera -- everything Tim Holtz --

Wish List & Faves

I like (no particular order):

everything Tim Holtz -- souvenir magnets -- stationary (actually, this is my big quirk - i can hardly resist letter supplies, esp paper and stickers and all kinds of things to make my own envies) -- 3-d-sheets -- rubber and clear stamps -- ephemera -- long, chatty, beautiful letters -- sentimental circus (kawaii) stuff -- kawaii in general -- decotape/ washi tape -- notecards -- ATCs and anything that can be used to make them -- anything for my planners (post-its, tape, stickers, page flags,...) -- vegan recipes always welcome

if u need a profile surprise and can't find anything here, check out my etsy faves. Link above with all the other links.

my fave animals: birds, horses, turtles --- fave colors: green, yellow, lavender --- fave characters: sentimental circus (kawaii), my little poney, jack skellington (nightmare before xmas), eeyore, ratatouille (rémy), rebella, angry birds, lady and tramp, oscar the grouch and cookie monster, muppets... --- fave themes: owls, birds, cowgirls&country, travel, love, birds, nature, sea, tattoos


faves: beautiful scenery, sea, animals of ur region, owls, budgies/parakeets, mediterranean scenery, city and night views, country/cowgirl/cowboy, US state birds, maps, classic motorcycles

i love busy postcards with a note, maybe a lil drawing, rubber stamps, stickers... whatever u like to use. i just love interesting cards with a lot of postage stamps, of course. make them interesting, write me something... there s so much to say about you and your life, i am sure... and if you really don't know what to say - draw, collage or do something. just don't let the message look sadly empty cause i am pretty sure postcards love to carry sweet messages and creative things. :)


well, first these are your lil artworks so i don't really wanna limit your creativity... but i know that sometimes one just wonders what the receiver might like best, so i will tell you some things:

i don't like it too much when atcs get too "bulky" - with HUGE embellishments. some are just too much for a lil atc - but i love embellishments. i just don't like things that are overdone...

i love making atcs with interesting postage stamps and i love receiving such, too.

i love rhinestones... but i am not really big on typical girly things and themes like fashion. i am not really a fan of manga either - i love cute things like kawaii, tho.

i love animals, esp. birds, owls, parakeets, sea turtles, bees, horses.

digital ATCs are welcome, too. i like to experiment with those using my own photographs.

just be creative - i love different, unusual styles. so don't let my likes and dislikes scare you away - be yourself and create.


i absolutely love everything with parakeets/ budgies and owls. if u have anything u dont need, esp PARAKEET stuff(this is rather rare), i ll be happy to get it :) the second big quirk is: snail mail supplies .... stationary, deco tape, stickers, rubber and clear stamps, postage stamps, address labels, shipping labels,.... I absolutely love letters and beautiful envies.

Favorite Television

i m not big on tv, actually, but there s a couple shows i really like: house m.d. (dr. house) -- once upon a time -- dexter -- six feet under -- grimm -- ALF

Do NOT send

any kind of food or drinks (allergies!!! and diet) -- cosmetic products - except "alverde" - germans will know that brand (allergies!!!) -- anything not vegan -- religious things -- jewelry --

Honestly, I'm not really picky or easily offended. I just tell you what you don't have to send at all in order to to waste both our time and material. Yes, I do have a bunch of allergies. Besides food, it's dogs, cats, rabbits... But, seriously, it does not affect me if you have pets (I love them anyway) unless you put them in an envie and send them (well, then I'd find a loving home for them - I volunteer at an awesome rescue farm with lots of animals ;) ) ... So even tho my allergies are pretty bad: Animals hundreds of miles away do not affect me, even if there might be a hair in a swap, or even two... I just cannot be in a house with those animals . I still love playing with them outside.

Comment: Thank you for the card. Love the view. We were in Germany 5 years ago and I loved the atmosphere in the small towns.
Response: Happy you like it. Thanks for the heart, too. :)
Comment: When I opened your ATC, it took my breath away because it is stunning! It really captures what could be a moment in time on a winter day. The title is perfect, since the image evokes a feeling of calm. I love everything you sent me. The envelope is really cool as well. Thank you! It brought me bunches of sunshine on this cold, gray day 🌞
Response: Aww, I am so glad you like it. Happy to have made your day! Have a great weekend, and happy swapping!
