things I will buy... some day...

Oh, hello! :)



Before I start, I wanted to give an update about me being less active lately: I am expecting a baby! Our little family will grow around the time of New Year and I am so happy about it....
It came a bit unexpected because after many years of disappointments hubby and I finally gave up the idea of a second child. And BAM! It happened! O_O
This second pregnancy is way more arduous than my first one. I still suffer from constant nausea and am very exhausted. At home we have a lot to do now and I have barely time for any crafts.
I will see how much time I will have for that with the new family member... :)

I am 37 and a mom of a 4 year-old boy - the joy of my life. Me and my wonderful husband have a cute little house in a small village in southern Germany. Here we live with our silly cat Emmy. We adopted her from an animal shelter when she was one year old. She was terrified about little children when she moved in. But our son is so in love with her, he cozened her with treats - her weakness! Now she is very relaxed when he is around her - she even searches for him when she is hungry. He is the guy with the mouth-watering food.

Our neighborhood is very nice. In summer we meet with our neighbours and make great BBQs. And it is absolutely normal that there are more kids in your garden, than you have together with your husband.

I like my small garden and I love to make trips with my family!

I am a bit nerdy. My husband, at least, says that. I love playing video games (RPGs & Adventures) but I have nearly no time for that anymore since I have a kid. And I like everything video game related.

Luckily my babyboy likes crafting as much as I do. He creates so cute washi-tape-cards. :D And he is using my cuttlebug like a pro!

Favorite Crafts

For years sewing was my favorite! Since I am a mom I have nearly no time - and nerves - for it. But thanks to the lovely @mgallardo68 I am back in sewing again! If you are interested in a private sewing swap, feel free to write me a message! :)

After the birth of my son I started with paper crafts and I LOVE it! I make mini albums for my whole family. It is something that I can do for just five minutes after breakfast or for two houres in the middle of the night. :)
I am completely into ATC-making right now and I try to work on my watercolour painting skills.

In 2016 I discovered PocketLetters and had a lot of fun whith it. But since you have to pay a fee on the official PL-website, I am not a part of the community anymore.

But I try to do a lot of different DIY projects. I am a real self-made-woman.

Favorite Books

Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams wrote the books of my youth. I grew up with their fantasy novels.
I read all books from Christopher Moore. He has kind of a dirty imagination and the language he uses is very... adult... :D
I also like Science-Fiction and Crime Thrillers.

Favorite Movies

Definitely Horror movies! My favorite one is Shaune of the dead. And the classic Night of the living dead.

But I like not only zombie movies.

I like most Disney movies, especially the classics. My favorite is Robin Hood - so cute!!!


Besides familytime I love my 4 Cs:

Cats - Crafting - Coffee - Cupcakes


I love bright colors. Gold - more than silver. And glitter...

Dots - more than stripes.

I have a good amount of washi-tape and I love to use it for album decoration or for postcards.

I had lots of fun making Pocket Letters and would like to swap some again.

Flip-Books and mini-Flip-Books.

For my mini albums (I make about 15 every christmas for my family and friends) I use a lot of embellishments. I make them from scraps - I can use every small piece of paper for it.

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. I can`t throw things away! This is the reason why I need so much space for my crafting hobby.

I am a craftster and I appreciate it when I get self made stuff from others. I think that it worths a lot when people invest their precious time to create something individual.

not my cup of tea...

Sports. The nearest that I come to sports is by playing videogames...

I am not a planer-girl. I had planers years ago but now I don`t use one.

Dark colors and dark chocolate - and I also don`t like spicy chocolate.

would love to receive...


♥ bright colored stuff

♥ embellishments

♥ dotty stuff

♥ tropical prints

♥ stickers (if I don`t use them, my son will!)

♥ everything golden

♥ all about video games - especially the old ones from the 80s and 90s

♥ Art déco

♥ stamps (clear or rubber - not postage stamps)

♥ cutting dies for my Cuttlebug

♥ embellishments for mini albums

♥ tiny pieces of paper - I use every small bit of paper to make embellishments (and if you have any paperscraps you don`t like, send it as well: my son loves to use his little scissors and cut paper into smithereens)

hints for the Christmas calendar swaps:

♥ all my likes from my profile :)

♥ Christmas decoration made of wood (or other natural materials) or metall (no pottery, please)

♥ small fairy-lights

♥ I like Santas, reindeers, Jul, winter wonderland, Jesus... I am open to nearly everything

♥ handmade Christmas decorations and ornaments

♥ Christmas colours for me are red, green, golden, creme, brown, teal, pile and even pink - the only no-nos for me are silver and blue.

♥ handlotion (the only kind of lotion I would be super happy about!)

would not be too happy with...


◔̯◔ cosmetics and lotions (other than handlotion)

◔̯◔ food with wheat

◔̯◔ dirty stuff (really....)

Comment: Thank you for the lovely card. The handmade envelope is georgeous. As a one of Christmas decorations in my home, I hang cards and postcards from around the world on walls. The one from you is in my bedroom. Soon together with my son (9 y. o.) we will bake gingerbreads and cookies, some of them will later decorate our Christmas tree. Have fun in this pre-Christmas time and Merry Christmas!

Comment: Thank you for this ATC! I have never heard of this game, this swap-series is so fun since I get to know a lot of new stuff I've never heard of! :)
Response: Thank you for the rating! I hope I can continue with this series some day. I love it as well - but my pregnancy-brain is super non-creative right now. :/
Emro rated for G-Nerds: Game-ATC A-Z - “L” on Jun 21, 2019
Comment: Auch diese ATC finde ich echt gut gelungen und ein sehr interessantes Motiv. Vielen Dank für die tolle Post! ☺ Ich hab damals auch noch die alten Spiele mit dem "Block und Stift" Prinzip kennen gelernt. Das hatte ich bis zu deiner Erinnerung schon komplett vergessen. Hab mich auch des Öfteren elendig verlaufen und bin in der Hinsicht echt dankbar für moderne Spiele. lol
Response: Vielen Dank! Ich liebe es, in dieser Art von Erinnerung zu schwelgen. Aber wenn ich versuche die richtig alten Spiele heute zu zocken, kriege ich die Krise! :D
Emro rated for G-Nerds: Game-ATC A-Z - “J” on Jun 21, 2019
Comment: Erstmal herzlichen Glückwunsch zu deinen Neuigkeiten! 🎉 Zum Swap: Auch wenn du mit dem Endergebnis vielleicht nicht sooo zufrieden Bist, finde ich, dass es dir trotzdem echt gut gelungen ist. Jack ist irgendwie echt nicht gruselig und das Spiel klingt klasse. Nicht-gruselige Spiele sind mir auch heute noch die Liebsten. haha.
Response: :D Dankeschön! Heute kann ich ausschließlich ungruselige Sachen spielen. Jumpscares bekommen mir gar nicht... :D
Comment: Thank you for such a fantastic mini pocket letter. If you ever fancy carrying on the letters, may be we could set up a private swap?
Response: Thank you! I am planing a new Mini-Pocket-Letter-swap for SIE over the holidays. Perhaps you like the idea and join it. :)
Comment: I love my filthy fly poster on my wall. What a fun graphic. I may have to do July as a e swap, as we settle in and I dig out my stash from moving, but by August this will be a mail art swap.
Response: Thank you! Your Accordion Awareness Month pics are awesome.... :D
brumby3 rated for IPC: Happy Mail Flipbook on Jun 3, 2019
Comment: Hi Romy, I received your amazing package today! I am so touched by the effort you put into this swap. Especially since the package was very personalised to my Profile likes. The flipbook you made me is so beautiful! I love it so much! And you added awesome goodies inside too. I am really amazed that you remembered the flipbooks I made you, I am very touched by that! I loved your detailed letter - I hope you are feeling much better now. And wow, a lot of rain! It is now winter here in Australia and where I live it is pretty cold now, but very little rain (actually have had many cold sunny days). I love all the extra goodies you sent me, I was so excited when I saw them! The little hand sanitizer is SO pretty, I have never seen anything like it before! And everything else is just amazing. Thank you SO SO much! I truly appreciate everything you have sent to me. Happy swapping!! Annabelle xoxoxo
Response: Yeah! :D I am so happy that you like everything! I was hoping to have you a my send-to-partner one day, so I could give you something in return for your amazing double-flip-book-mail. :) Oh, and the hand sanitizer has indeed a nice smell! I saw it after I brought your mail to the PO...
tristitia rated for IPC: Inspiration Kit on Jun 2, 2019
Comment: Wow, Romy! This package is amazing! So much fun to go through everything - and I love it all! I keep looking though and finding new things! All the magazine images, book pages, stickers, the book stamp - and I really love the way you decorated the envelope! Thank you, thank you!
Response: I thought I could be a bit crazy with the content because you like mixed media art. :D Thank you for your rating!
