About Me

Hello!

I'm Sabrina, I was born and raised in a little village in Southwest Germany, but moved to London, UK over 20 years ago. I like to travel; a fantastic way to learn about different cultures and customs. I also really like food; cooking but even more so tasting ;) I've been a vegan since 2002 or so and while it's becoming more popular, travelling as a vegan can still be somewhat tricky. That's why I volunteer time for an online vegetarian/vegan restaurant guide.

I have gotten back into snail mail about three years ago, first with Postcrossing. Due to Covid and working from home, I am expanding on sending postcards and simple letters, making envelope art, stamping and simple paper crafts.

I love washi tapes and washi stickers. I'm still experimenting and finding my style, but my inner goth and punk really enjoys things on the alternative spectrum. I favour dark and bold colours over pastels. I particularly dislike pink and baby blue.

Some of my favourite themes: - Street art - Punks / Goths - Local fruit/veg/spices - Coffee or tea - Bold colour illustrations - Nemi - Alice in Wonderland - SANTORO GORJUSS - Macabre - Nature

Please no animals in captivity, non-vegan foods & recipes, religious, military or sexist.

Favorite Crafts

Beginning to explore paper crafts: stamping, stencils, die cuts, collage, simple card making.

I also do a spot of colouring and hand lettering here and there, but struggle to find (or rather make!) the time for regular practice.

Favorite Books

Patricia Cornwell novels Shantaram by Roberts, Gregory David Baudolino by Umberto Eco

Comment: Thank you for the fab Happy Potter postcard :-) I have read the first three books, but never got any further. I have to admit I prefer the films! I went to Harry Potter World a couple of years ago, and am dying to be able to go again! Great swapping with you again, thank you <3

Comment: This is a lot harder than it looks. I have only managed to work out one of the pairs so far. I am glad it arrived before I posted mine off because I did it wrong. I put the answers in the middle so, I will re-write it. I will need to rope the rest of the family in solve the puzzles.
Response: Brain teaser 😀 Sometimes it is the word on the second row that gives me the idea of what it could be more so than the first and then i just check if it forms a word for the first line too. Oh, Id be quite interested to see what you had prepared so feel free to send me what you have 😊

Comment: i am glad that there are people like you, who still write letters and send cards. i like to get mail, I like receiving letters, but I never know to write back. Sorry I forgot the heart
Response: I even write to some of my friends/family members that don’t write back. As long as I know they appreciate the mail. Swaps are a nice way to brighten up our mailboxes as well.
