A big THANK YOU to my swap partners who put care in their enveloppe & packages.

I had such a huge chance to swap with beautiful swap partners and I was so so grateful to receive some letters and package on which I could see how much time was spent to prepare and decorate.

โคโคโค I give a heart every time I receive a beautiful enveloppe. If you decore your swap, if you wrap the gifts or if you take time to write a nice long letter.... No need to send extra gifts. I have a ton of things at home (including stationary). I value the time and care you put in the swap, not the amount of gifts & extras.

โคโคโค A huge thank you to @StargazerHM for Angeling the Kawaii Ziploc Bag like it was Christmas. Thank you for having angeling and thank you for having put so much care into it and for your generosity

โคโคโค A big thank you as well for @Esthercita79 for Angeling as well with such a nice care into it. It touched me really

Note to Swap Partners

*** Please note I might sometimes send a swap with 2-3 days later the date, because my office hours are the same as post office schedule. In this case, I will let you know and use Priority Mail to send the swap.

ยฐยฐยฐ Ratings : I always rate, even if late, I am rating all the swaps I receive.

Books, TV & Nintendo

โ™ก I LOVE READING BOOKS & Magazines โ™ก

both in English and French.

I used to read the series : Harry Potter, Twilight, and more fantasy. Now I am more into realistic stories. I just finished the 4 books serie from Elena Ferrante and I loved it. I like Sophie Kinsella and similar author, Joel Dicker is a local favourite.

I also love self-help books and anything related to relationships & meditation.

I also like magazines such as Glamour & Cosmopolitan : I would love to receive UK or US versions.

I have a Kindle to read E-Books and I also listen audiobooks. (especially for self-help & educational)

Comment: Thank you for swaping and sharing your crafting environment with me I love your ikea cart wich is way too much expensive to get in India hahah
Response: thank you for the rating :) im sad to hear the trolley is too expensive to get in india. Especially as Ikea is seen as a "cheap alternative" to furnitures and deco, here in Switzerland. the cost of living and revenues are sooo different between your country and mine, an it seems Ikea cannot adjust their price too much, it's a clear effect of negative economic globalization and Im so sad to read this. I hope however you can get better - maybe sustainable wood handcrafted - furnitures , which are much better <3 <3 <3 take care
