About Me

My name is Monika. I'm 35. I'm half Polish, half English, I'm a teacher of English and German and I'm currently living in Spain :) I speak English, Polish, German, Spanish and Catalan fluently. I speak some basic French and Russian. I can write Russian, but not French. I understand the written versions of the latter two quite well, though. All this in case you want to write to me in any other language than English :)

favourite crafts

I'm an absolute lover of a variety of crafts such as: knitting, crochet, decoupage, drawing, painting, sewing (an absolute beginner in the latter).

Favorite Books

I'm a bookworm. ;)

My favourite books: The Secret Garden by F.H. Burnett and Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne, 84 Charing Cross Road by Helen Hanff, The Picture of Dorian Gray by O.Wilde

My favorite writers: Oscar Wilde, Agatha Christie, Patricia Cornwall, Frank McCourt among many

I love historical novels, especially WWII, but Irecently took to books about Ancient Rome.

Agatha Christie is my absolute favourite in crime novels.

I also read classics. I adore Oscar Wild, Charles Dickens, Hemingway...

My world of teas

I adore drinking tea and I'm a chain drinker ;) I just drink one cup after another. Among my favorite teas are:

My absolute number one is GREEN, but I also like:

brown, red and purple for clothes

brown, gold, wine color for house deco

favourite cartoons

My favourite cartoon character is Winnie the Pooh- I'm in love with this little silly bear ;)

I love Moomins and Gummi bears too. I could watch them for hours when I was a kid.

an absolute NONO is anything related to the Japanese cartoons (Dragon Ball, Doraemon and the like; Not a big fan of Hello Kitty either, but I don't mind it that much; or anything science fiction related;

other favorites

I love travelling and taking photos. I love learning new languages and making friends, especially snail mail friends ;)

I love anything with butterflies on it. I adore these little creatures.

I have a sweet tooth and I'm an absolute milk chocolate addict.;-) I adore Milka, Cadbury's and Lindt chocolates and any German, Austrian or Swiss goodies and American Hershey's, esp the Kisses ;).

I'm keen on trying goodies from other countries, tough.

Comment: that was such a sweet swap. are the journaling cards project life? If so, they are much more colorful than ones I have previously purchased. What sets are they from? Enjoyed the quote as I am someone who enjoys Joel Osteen teachings. Thank you so much!
Response: hi, I bought the cards as a set that said scrapbooking/ journaling. I bought them to send them to people who like these things. I don't use them myself. The set was called DK scrap collection.

Thank you so much for the cupcake pincushion you made for me, I love it! And for the mini Polish lesson, though I think I need to look up the Polish alphabet and pronunciation to read it right, haha~~ We have Haribo here in the states; it's one of my favorite candy brands, especially the cola gummies. :) I'm going out of town a few times this month, but I'll write back again as soon as I get home, probably the first week of August. Then I go out of town again...lol....the mid-to-end of the year is always so busy. Have an awesome weekend!
