About Me

Hello Swapbotters! Hello Friends!

Update November 2023: Im working on Sending all the missing parts. Hope they'll reach you ´til Christmas. Maybe I will ask for one or two addresses. If you are waiting for pieces from me and you moved this year, please tell me the new post address. Mine changed only a little from Number 5a to 5. But most will be ok.

Again, I have to excuse for letting you wait for so long. It was the most exhausting year for me, and I wish I could have finished all the tasks before my surgery. The move and finally taking care for grandpa.

Hope you will like my belated sendings. I missed you a lot. Please don't think I did not care, I simply couldn't. I appreciated everything I received from you and I will show every piece on my Insta and try to rate whatever I can. All the best for you!

AK4Swap

Update 28th of May’23: Good News! It seems my arm will recover fully. I just started training. Also we are moving to a bigger flat right now. There I can start over and prepare some wonderful pieces for you hopefully soon. Still I am very sorry you have to wait a little longer, but I’ll do my best to surprise you with whatever you might appreciate. I look forward to send out mail. I guess I’ll start with the ratings soon. I received a lot of mail and I can’t wait to start. You are awesome! Thank you! 🥹💐🙏🏼💗 ——————————————————————

I case of delay of mail and ratings, please read first. You are not flaked or forgotten. I tried to send out messages to everybody who is waiting for my mail or rating but I might have missed someone. I am very sorry. Please give me some more time. I thank you a lot for your patience. Please don’t rate me too soon.

After an accident in January I was told I have to undergo surgery of my left arm in April. I need some time for myself to prepare for that and the upcoming semester in university. There are lots of problems to be solved.

Hope I can rate all the beautiful pieces I received from you over the last weeks in two weeks from now, but I can’t tell for the first. Maybe it will be the end of summer.

I think about you everyday and miss creating and sending out colorful mail to you. I just wanted you to know what’s going on in my life and that I will be back.

I will have a lot of appointments to recover this spring/summer. I have no idea what is lying in front of me but I feel thankful grateful and blessed. The Lord is protecting me and he will provide what is right for me.

I’ll include you into my prayers and hope you are well. Sending hugs and all the best wishes! 💐💕

💁🏻‍♀️ your friend Anik4

—————————————————————-

My Name is Anika. I am a nurse, labtechnician and teacher living in Germany at the countryside with my fiancé and dogs „Live“ (11 y.o. Curly black fur Mudi-mixedbreed from Romania) and „Happy“ (1y.o. Little cutie born in Germany by a mother rescued from Romania - she is white with brown spots looking like a jack Russel but slim and sporty.) I looove dogs and children! For ten years I lived in the city of cologne and near Bonn, but now I enjoy nature and trees, animals and gardening, walking and hiking.

I organize monthly international ATC-Swaps for Cards and Coins of every style and technique on instagram (I don’t like Facebook) I love connecting artists. You can find me: #anik4swap @ani k4paper and @ani k4swap

When checking my Insta be careful for pictures of something our swap is about. -> Spoiler alert.

I really like every color and everything self made. I love to be inspired by your style, so don’t worry about my taste or anything. I prefer something self made over something bought. I am happy about every mail. I also like paper scraps from self made paper, colored paper, patterns, gift wrap, book pages. I can use pockets and envelopes and ephemera and fodder. Blank Postcards I collect for a friend of mine if not self made or written to me. If you collect postage stamps, I can send some with my letter. I also collect those for friends.

I love vintage style, everything collage, steampunk but also kawaii, I do scrapbooking, mini journal, junkjournaling (I love bookbinding) and I have sent some postcards, happy mails and journal giveaways in the past already. I collect newspapers from other countries. I love making waxseals and I have a lot of washis, stickers and pieces of fabric. Old playing cards are cool for making apcs, tell me if you want to swap those or ATC-backgrounds. :D

I like Christian/religious stuff. I am a believer in Jesus, Father and the Holy Spirit! You can send me all your crosses and fishes and psalms and bible passages. I can also pray for you if you tell me. I was only a Christian by name when I was young and since I am 30 I started to read and study the Bibel. If you are in a similar situation or if you know bsf or the app word go. Let’s talk about it! Maybe we can study together.

Oh and I like sailor moon.

Dislikes:

Satan Zombie Yoga/Buddha/spiritual Witchy stuff Tarot/oracle Harry Potter Jewelry Sweets Loose glitter

With the swaps I am reliable! I message when I can’t send for any reason. Please do this too. And please contact me if you haven’t received anything before rating or if you really dislike the style. Let me try again if I got the challenge wrong.

I offer swaps for Senders Choice technique and style ATCards and -coins, APCs, HMPC, ATC-Backgrounds/masterboards, waxseals, christian ATCs and Postcards on swap-bot.com public but most of them in our group “Anik4ATCs”. Our group is supposed to be a place where anybody is invited to open up his favorite kind of swap. But you can also tell me how I could design the perfect swap for you. Help us to grow and develope.

You might also know me from the monthly international collaged altered playing card swap #micpce or the #cwcraftsatcswap which is now #nodramaswap or the swaps of #kandthepostcards because I like to participate there too. You can also invite me to your swap! I’d love to discover new groups.

So nice to meet you! Feel free to ask. I am looking forward to an exchange with you!

Comment: Anika, thank you for your fun chocolate bar ATC! It looks fun and delicious! I am so glad that you like the idea of chocolates. Actually I find that overly specific swaps are at much high risk of ending up "ghost" (meaning no participants) especially if hosted in groups with limited audience, but I feel that overly generic swaps are not as exciting. So I am still at a dilemma what to host - come up with bizarre swap ideas and worry about ghost swaps, or just go mediocre and relax? 😂
Response: I think at the moment it’s quite balanced at our group and there is something for everybody. It was a great start and now it’s challenging to keep it at that level. At the moment I feel a little tired - hope that more people decide to host some swaps too. Thank you for your great ideas! 💐💕
