Germany now has a postal strike. Please be patient with the mail.
Please make sure my surname (not my username) is clear on the envelope above my address.
I’m an Aussie, living in Berlin, Germany. I finished studying a Bachelor of Art and Diploma of beauty therapy, which I do not use. I read a lot, mainly fiction but also some informative books on a wide range of themes. I also read a magazine that I have a subscription to in German. With books I like to have one German book and one English book on the go. I like cutting pictures out of magazines and sticking them in books to make new journaling pages. I enjoy playing bingo, which is nostalgia from playing with my grandmother when I was younger. I like photography, especially black and white photos and old polaroids. I love flowers, household plants and learning about their benefits. I am learning about what plants from the weed variety are actually edible, like dandilion or nettle. I enjoy taking holidays and looking forward to exploring Europe more. Winter is my favourite season (as long as I can be warm!). I like all colours, but especially purples, reds and greens. I am quite happy with my own company and never seem to run out of things to do. That said, I have a boyfriend and a black cat and I enjoy their company too!
I love cat related things - especially black cats. I also love mice and blackbirds. Ferns, pheasants, carnations, snowdrops, ivy, oak trees, nature, dried/pressed flowers. I love gypsy caravans. Historical items. Any kind of cute stickers are welcome! Even the dreaded sticker flakes. I am religious, but in my own kind of way. I can't get enough washi tapes, I'm always happy to receive some!
I would love to receive anything with the common blackbird on it. It is my favourite garden bird.
Favourite Season: Winter Favourite Colours: Purple, Forest Green, Crimsen, Gold and Silver
To be honest I don't listen to so much music anymore. But generally easy indie or something a little unique. I listen to mainly podcasts. In particular - The Higherside Chat Show Crrow777Radio Michelle Gibson (on YouTube)
I'll try anything, I'm currently crocheting a cardigan and I am learning how to knit colour-work socks with mushroom patterns - see Stoneknits on Etsy. I enjoy cooking and will often cook something from a recipe book, but generally it should have a picture so I know what it should look like. I enjoy my junk journaling and making collages. Colourful or interesting papers, cutouts and washi are always welcome so that I can make something from it. Letter sets/notecards, memo papers are always welcome!
Stickers, even puffy stickers! (Nothing too childish). Magazine/Newspaper cut outs, dicuts, things I can use in a junk journal. Anything cat related, floral, nature, pretty.
Cold comfort farm - Stella Gibbons. My Struggle (series) - Karl Ove Knausgård Anastasia (series) - Vladimir Megre Flames - Robbie Arnott Though a Glass Darkly - Karleen Koen
Indie films! Suggest some from your country please! I generally will not watch big Hollywood films including Disney. I can no longer tolerate violence or to be honest sex-scenes. I do not see how it really enhances a film. Subtle and not in-your-face is always better. I enjoy watching foreign films, dramas, especially Japanese dramas because they are quite slow and calm (but generally not Manga).
I enjoy swimming (in a swimming pool) and try to also go to the gym regularly. I enjoy Pilates. I work full-time in an office. Unfortunately my commute to work is quite long and that makes me tired! But I do get to read a lot which is great. I love the idea of The Beartaria Times, building a community and living simply. I like vintage designs, flowers, nostalgia, old traditional christmas & snow scenes. Australiana!
I am happy to take any notecards, notepapers/memopapers, letter sets!
I would not like to receive food items. I do not need or want disney, hollywood, manga items.
Thank you! :)
