About Me

MY POOR RATINGS: Yes, there are some 1's. Two years ago I suddenly went through some very unpleasant things. My partner cancelled our wedding. I had to go to hospital for several months. I moved twice. It was just too much for me, so I disappeared without finishing my current swaps. I know this wasn't right, but I just couldn't handle it at that time. I contacted everyone in hope they'll give me a chance to fix everything. I never meant to disappoint anyone.


After a very long break I'm back! I know I got some low ratings. I had a really rough time when I disappeared and I'm very sorry for the swap partners I let down. I'm trying to fix everything as soon as I can. If I owe you a swap, please let me know!

First, let me say a few things about swapping with me. :)

I always put a lot of thought and effort in any of my swap packages. I always try to send of time, but as you might know, sometimes life happens. If I'm going to send late I will contact my partner to let him/her know what's going on. As soon as I send out my package I have no control about what might happen to it. When it gets lost, it's not my fault. If this does happen, I'll try my best to send another proper package. If you don't receive your swap item in time (may it be a package, a letter or just an e-mail), PLEASE LET ME KNOW and don't give me a low rating. I ask you to contact me if any issues might occur. I'm sure we'll always find a way to work it out. I also ask you to rate me soon after you received my swap item. I rate as soon as I receive. Electronic swaps are an exception, since I'm pretty lazy at those. Sorry for that. -_- If I'll send you something you don't like or can't use feel free to give it to someone else who will appreciate. I don't mind. :)

But know on to the fun part. ^^


My name is Jeni (short for Jennifer), I'm in my early 30ies and I live in Germany. I have a 9-5 job which can be very boring.

I'm a mom to six parakeets (Nuri, Lune, Keir, Elrik, Dillon and Chili) and a dwarf hamster named Venara. I spoil them rotten. ^^; I also have a tiny colony of Messor barbarus (ants) and currently three foster rats.

I wouldn't consider calling me a goth, but I'm close. I only wear black clothes, with just a few exceptions. I own a pink flower power dress which I love so much (and irritates everyone who sees it because they would never expect me to wear something like this XD). But I love colorful accesoires like socks or scarves or hand warmers.

My hobbies: Reading - I always loved reading and learned how to do this before I went to school. Scroll down for more information about my favourite books.

Video games - I don't play as often as I would like. I own a PS2 and a PS3. I have a love for jump&run. My favourite games are "Kya - Dark Lineage", almost every "Ratchet & Clank", "Psychonauts", "Final Fantasy X" and "Alice - Madness returns".

Crafting - I wish I would do more crafting since it's something I really enjoy. And I always love to learn new crafts. When I was about 9 my grandma showed me how to knit in garter stitch. In school I learned how to sew and spin yarn. I learned everything else I know on my own. Youtube was a great help. ;)

Cooking and baking - Most of the time I'm too lazy to work in the kitchen. But I really enjoy preparing meals, baking my own bread, bake cupcakes and try new recipes. I'm a vegetarian.

Skating - I used to attend roller derby training. After two years without seeing a chance to ever pass the MST I gave up. But I never lost my love for skating. I'm not that good (and received several bad injuries), but I love it.

I'm a bit religious, which is strange since I'm the only one in my family (expecting grandpa who died a couple of years ago). I'm okay with some religious stuff, prayers and quotes to cheer me up. I'm also interested in Bhuddism and Wiccan things.

Favorite Books

I love fairy tales, fantasy, horror, historical love stories, mangas... My favourite authors are Stephen King and Terry Pratchett. I also love to read something new that was recommended by someone else and I wouldn't have read on my own. I don't like boring historical stories (the ones that are mostly political), chick lit and crime.

Favourite books:

The Mermaid's Sister, Therdeban, Chase the moon, Room, Outlander, Mort... Okay, maybe I'll continue this later. I've read most of the books in german and have no idea what their english titles are. ^^;

Movies and tv shows

I'm not very fond of action movies, though there might be a few I really like. I almost never watch horror movies since I'm scared VERY easily.

Favourite movies:

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, The Boat that rocked, Sin City, Tokyo Godfathers, Repo - The Genetic Opera!, Ronal the Barbarian, almost every Disney movie, I'm a cyborg but that's okay, Old Boy (the korean version), My neighbour Totoro, Spirited away, #9, Housebound, The Hunger Games, Labyrinth, uhm... need to check my dvd collection to find more.

I don't watch much tv. I'm not even able to watch tv at home. And I don't miss it that much. I watch a lot of tv when I'm at my boyfriend's. I prefr watching documentaries about history or science. My current favourites are documentaries about outer space. I also like those tv shows where they reconstruct murders.

I've watched a lot aof tv shows when I was younger. Now I'm not very fond of them. But I still have a few favourite shows.

These are: Avatar - The last Airbender, Shameless, Outlander, American Horror Story (oh, how much I love Season 1!), Twin Peaks and Kingdom Hospital.

Favorite Crafts

I do a lot of crafts, like knitting, crocheting, drawing (well, at least I used to draw), sewing, quilting, a little bit of jewelry making and papercrafts. I'M best at knitting and crocheting. My sewing skills also grow with each project. Last year I learned how to quilt and got obsessed with mug rugs. One time when I was in hospital I crocheted several amigurumis each week. I had a polymer clay phase in which I made tons of canes, beads and mini foods. Years ago I made my own skirts and bags. Recently I discovered my love for homemade beauty products, but I'm still a beginner here.

CHOCOLATE: I love almost every type of chocolate. My favourites are chocolates with liquid filling. I'm not a huge fan of white chocolate. I prefer milk chocolate, but even dark is okay. I like caramel, coffee, cherry, nougat, but I always love to try new things. I also love weird flavours. (One of the best chocolates I've had was with cheese.) What I strongly dislike is orange, lemon, berry (strawberries or cherries are okay) or pineapple flavour. Lindt, Reese's, Zotter and Kinder are a few of my favourite brands.

SWEETS: I love almost everything. My favourites are gummies, but it's kinda hard to find vegetarian gummies that are actually good. I'm crazy for peanut butter and anything cherry flavoured. I'm not very fond of taffy (though I would like to try salt-water taffy just once) or chewing gum. Same with licorice. Cookies are also great, I like almost every kind.

SAVOURY SNACKS: I love everything with cheese, honey & mustard, sour cream or garlic flavour, as long as it's vegetarian friendly. One of my favourite snacks are Snyder's Pretzel Bites. I love chips, but I understand that they are hard to send. I don't like foods that are too spicy.

TEA: I love yogi and herbal teas. Orange is fine, too. And I love Christmas teas. Almost every flavoured tea would be great. I strongly dislike red fruit teas, green, white and blacks teas.

Foods and drinks I've received in previous swaps I totally loved (and wouldn't mind receiving again XD):

  • Twining's Herbal Tea Lemon & Ginger
  • Nestlé Princessa orzechowa
  • KubuÅ›, ciastka 8 zbóż żurawina
  • Cadbury Dairy Milk Caramel

What not to send

There are a few things I wouldn't be happy to receive.

I have no use for ephemera.

And I don't like kiddy stuff. Cute things are okay. For fabrics I even like prints that might be suitable for kids, but please no princesses or pirates or such.

If you send treats for my parakeets or my dwarf hamster please make sure there's no added sugar or even honey. Especially in hamster food, dwarf hamsters have a high risk of developing diabetes. Please keep it as natural as possible.

For me, please no animal parts. No fur, no bones, nothing. Unless you know where it comes from and the animal wasn't killed for it.

If you send something food related: no meat, no fish. Thank you. :) (There's one exception: marshmallows. I know this is inconsequent, but I love marshmallows!)

Allergies / Allergens

I don't have any allergies and don't even mind cat or dog hair on my item. ;) To me pet hairs are a proof that yur little darling loves you.

As I mentioned above I share my room with parakeets. Their feathers are everywhere in my appartement. So if you're allergic please let me know and I'll take care not to bring my swap items home. I smoke occasionally. Due to my featehred litle friends I smoke on the balcony only. If you're allergic to smoke please let me know and I will take extra care not to get any smoke on my swap items!

Profile Love - October:

Ich liebe den Herbst auch - v.a. die schönen, bunten Blätter, Kürbisse und Kastanien sammeln. Kennst du noch die Kastanienmännchen von früher? Hab mich gerade wieder dran erinnert. ^.^

Ot, mein Lieblingscharakter in den Büchern von Terry Pratchett ist Tod. :'D

Und kennst du die Flüsse von London Bücher? Falls nicht, ich kann sie nur empfehlen, wenn du Fantasy magst.
