Covid arrived at my country since the begging of the year and it has caused a lot of troubles. One of them is the horrible service in the postal office. We can’t send any correspondence off country and receiving has been delayed or lost. I’m really sorry if my penpals didn’t receive any word of me; i have been trying to adjust my time and money, as i can’t work the full time as before and i have been taking some part-time jobs that don’t pay that well. (Some even pay less than 5 eua dollars per class or 1 3/4 hours) I didn’t sign up for any swaps because i don’t have time, money neither can’t send anything. I’m really sorry. I do miss writing letters. At least i still can journal a bit. Hope you all are safe and well.
I'm a married woman that loves crafts and stationery! I love to drawn and color, and i collect many itens as seals stamp, pens, coloured pencils, decorated papers (like origami and themed notepads), cute erasers and post-its! As a teenager i started writing to people that liked the same things as me, because there wasn't many people at the time, that liked animes. And it made me hooked in snail mail! When i finished college, i had to move and lost contact with many people, and when internet came as a hit, many people stoped writing too. So, i'm looking for some new friends to chat and exchange cute things!
Things that i LOVE: - Ghibli Studio - Totoro - Stationery (stickers, decorated paper, rubons, printed images, die cuts, post-its, pens, erasers, watercolor) - Animals - Videogames
I'm a bit of eclectic gal. I do love rock more than other kind of music, and also, i don't like funk (the brazilian kind). Sometimes the best ones are the classics. No lyrics, but a sweet and entrancing sound of instruments. Songs from Peru made in those double flute (siku) are delicious to hear too. If you want a upbeat kind of song, go with korean style (kpop or krock). Also, japanese rock has so many kind of songs and lyrics that you can't get over it!
In my country, we call them "juvenile books". They're targeted to teenagers, but a lot of grown ups like them too. You know the kind? Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, Narnia, Inkheart, Eragon, Artemis Fowl... Also some writers also get a bit of attention, like Sidney Sheldon, Agatha Christie, Stephen King... In my country there is some nice writers too: Mario Prata, Marcos Reys, Luis Fernando Verissimo, Lucia Machado de Almeida.
I do love reading, but my crazy work hours had me and i stoped reading for some .. years. Now i'll get back to them, seeing i have a nice stash of newly bought books that i didn't read! =D
And i have lots of mangas to read too... (ok, those aren't books, but to me, all reading material is a kind of "book".)
Fantasy! Mistery! Horror! Comedy! Drama! Throw all of them at me! I just don't like those romance ones... some are good. To sleep through =P My faves are those that give chills or that you fell like you WANT to be there, with all the characters! I do need some recomendations! =D
I follow some series, but my taste is a bit randon for those things. I mean, i do like anime, comics, but i do watch a lot of things! Korean drama, chinese drama japanese drama, american... i can't keep track of all those, but some beats me. I tried watching some, but when they're still "ongoing", it turns me off. If i start something that i don't know it'll end someday, it'll get me on edge. I wait until they get old and finished to watch. (i even waited 10 years to read an manga title just so i was sure it ended.)
I love learning new things, so i did learn a lot of things over the years. * Main things with thread: crochet, tricot, macrame, cross stitch, sewing, amigurumi... * Main things with paper: recycling, card, zines, flipbooks, origami, envelopes, paper craft... * Main things with pen/pencil: drawing, coloring, writing * Cooking: oriental cuisine, well seasoned foods, spicy ones...
I also like art with shrink dink, beads, hama bead, painting, felt needling,..
Any lind of tea. I may not drink all of them, but mom always help me, so we enjoy talking taking a cup of tea. Biscuits and treats are welcome too. I just don’t very much anything too sugary and something called “doce de leite”. Dark chocolate or mint chocolate are the best! I enjoy hard candies too and new flavors or not common brazilian candy are good too! Please refrain from sending anything a bit too much minty kind like halls because i can’t eat them! I’m weak! 😂
Sometimes i leave all my mail in the postbox because i have a tigh working schedule, so, forgive me if your mail arrives stamped with a later date, because the stamp is from the day the post office picks it up and send.
