About Me

-SPOILER- I post pictures of recent swaps on Instagram. Usually shortly before or after I send it off. Flickr will be updated from time to time. -SPOILER-

My name is Monique and I'm from Germany.

I've always liked to receive letters. And I also like the idea of random act of kindness. Swap-bot seems to be the connection of both things. :) These days I enjoy creating mail art like postcards.

Favorite Crafts

I try to do a lot of things. After a while I always have to try something new. Things I've done: Pocket Letters, Zentangling...

Latest interests are handmade postcards (never getting old), decorated envelopes and InkBox cards (7,6 x 7,6 cm).

  • Working with paper (collages)
  • Watercolour (my latest craft)
  • Acrylic painting with youtube tutorials
  • Some sewing (mostly on paper these days)
  • Crocheting / Knitting (abandoned)

Favorite Music

Alternative, Indie, Garage, a bit Folk, 50s Rock'n'Roll/Rockabilly...

To name a few (often changing): Temples, Kasabian, Katzenjammer, Florence + the Machine, Hot Boogie Chillun, Public Service Broadcasting, Wanda, Arctic Monkeys, Depeche Mode, Måneskin...

And I would be glad if you could recommend me something.

Favorite Television

I'm not a movie fan, instead I love TV Series even more!

Pushing Daisies, Sherlock, White Collar, Grimm, Rizzoli & Isles, Death in Paradise, Father Brown, Doctor Who, Burn Notice, Chuck, Warehouse 13, Perception, Agatha Raisin...

Lately I'm starting in classic series: The Avengers (Peel & Steed!), The Persuaders!...

Some ideas for sending: ~I don't collect anything but I like surprises!~

big postage stamps with heads (for creating postage people) - collage material - black & white pictures (collage material) - fabric - handmade things - "consumable" things for crafting e.g. paper, vintage paper, washi, ephemera... everything that I could use for creating mail art (as I don't have enough space for dust traps :)) (or just ask)

I don't like

planner stickers - dogs - Disney - Emojis - something with vanilla or sweet fragrance - Manga - off-season Christmas (I'm starting slowly to care about one month before, at the earliest) also not overly excited about Halloween

Tea

Teas I love: green (plain or + herbs...) - white - herbal - with lemon and ginger - fresh tastes in general ... (no matter if it comes in bags or if it's loose- as long as it's sealed)

I'd like to try again: Four O'clock - Green tea with rose

Teas I don't like: all fruity or sweet teas (apple, hibiscus, rose hip, berries...) - vanilla - black tea - cinnamon - instand tea - honey - something with vanilla or sweet fragrance

Comment: I love the mushroom postcard! And I agree- I can see why the pilzkopf made you think of the Beatles. Also your colorful paper was beautiful!
