I will never ger back my journal for this swap: http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/68369 and the profile is also deleted :-(

Seems it is more safe to swap in groups... Very sad !!!

I am vegan, so please consider that, if you wanna send edibles.

Favorite Music

Favorite Crafts

Journals + Journaling I have several journals going on and of recent I fell in love with making them myself. For myself. I just send them out to friends or in swaps before, now I Keep some :-) I love those journals where you stick in the remnants of the day and journal little. I am always open for private Journal swaps !!!

Cards Not very often, but for special occasions !

any kinda "paper works", e.g. Origami, window decos....

And recently I discovered the great fun of making ATC's and inchies as well as Rolos.

If you have any left over pieces of paper, you can always include them in your swaps or letters !!! I am crazy about them ! I am looking for some Chevron patterns, green(with or without patterns), Polka dots, glitter, patterns in General... I love them all ;-)


Reading, dunno how people can live without reading

Soccer/football, my club is FC Cologne,watching is enough stress, lol

Cooking, very creative and relaxing for me, no matter if 5 or 50 people are coming to eat. But I hate to eat alone, very sad. I am on my way to be vegan, very interesting and so delicious !

Card- and board games great and fun way to be with family and friends.I love Carcassonne, Monopoly,..... Just now I got Qwixx,wonderful !

I am addicted to the audio-books of " Die drei Fragezeichen" (three investigators) ! We have been to 3 of their live shows and I love them the more by now ! I grew up listening to the LP's, now CD's and I have given it over to my son !!!!

Comment: Thank you so much for the postcard - it is so my style . Reminds me of living in England. I am not sure I would want to live with Mr. Rochester's first wife in the attic but I agree with you about C. Bronte's vivid details!! I hope we are partners again. xxMuggleMom
Response: Yes, I agree, the wife gives me the creeps.... And I am torn between his lies about her and seeing him, doing the best he can for her. Pretty difficult. Yes, I'd love to swap with you again! Thanks for your kind words, the rating and the <3!

Comment: Ich hoffe ja, #04 kommt auch von dir, sonst bin ich schwer enttäuscht! 😁 Ich hatte auch sooo viele TBR Bücher. Beim Umzug in die neue kleine Wohnung musste ganz viel weg. Jetzt haben wir nur noch drei Regale in der gesamten Wohnung - für ALLE Bücher 😱 - und Ich habe zwei TBR Umzugskartons 😆 Danke für die Karte!
Response: Nee, nix kommt im Moment LOL Wir ziehen auch bald um, ich weiß nicht, wie ich 4m Bücherwand transportieren soll. Miste gerade aus... *schnief*

Comment: Vielen lieben Dank für deine Karte! Wie unterschiedlich das doch ist! Ich lese tatsächlich auf dem Arbeitsweg sehr gerne ebook, einfach weil es so schön leicht ist und man direkt schon das nächste Buch dabei hat, falls man das aktuelle beenden sollte. Hat bei mir aber auch eine Weile dauert bis ich mich an das Lesen daran gewöhnt habe. Aber auch jetzt mit schlafendem Baby ist es prima, weil man kein Licht braucht. Ansonsten LIEBE ich gebundene Bücher. Gerne auch Schmuckausgaben. Da haben Papier, Bindung etc einfach eine andere, hochwertigere Haptik. Bei Audiobooks bin ich total bei dir! Da gehen auch für mich nur wenige. Rufus Beck, Dietmar Bär, Bürger Lars Dietrich. (🤔 komischerweise bei mir mehr Männer) Alles alles Liebe für dich 🌺
Response: Waoh! Was eine Rückmeldung ! Vielen Dank! Ich träume von der Schmuckausgabe von Jane Eyre.... Der Presi schockt mich immer wieder. Leider. Aber irgendwann ;-) Viel Spaß beim Lesen und alles Gute und viel Spaß mit Deinem Baby....
