Hi, my name is Alexandra and I'm from Rome, Italy, although I was born in the UK. I'm a newbie paper crafter and snail mail lover, having started journaling and crafting in early 2020.
I love rubber stamps, snailmail, stationary, washi tape and anything vintage. I love making envelopes, flip books, loaded pockets and letter paper. I love the hands-on crafting aspect of it but what I most love is decorating! Just letting my immagination and creativity run wild.
I hope this community will give me the opportunity to get to know lots of people around the globe and exchange ideas and views about life in different parts of the world.
I can't wait to get started on here and get to know the users of swap-bot :)
I love to travel and am very fascinated by different cultures and customs. One of my dream trips is to travel to Japan one day, but also get to see the Aurora Borealis. Hopefully I'll be able to reach my goal sooner or later!
I enjoy photography and also baking. As a part time job/hobby I bake and sell cupcakes. I love playing with colours and ingredients.
I also love skiing and discovering new places to visit.
I am bi-lingual in Italian and English and speak a little bit of French.
I've lived in the UK, Norway, Indonesia and Italy, where I am currently living now.
I don't really have any specific requests, although I really hope to receive swaps from users in Japan or China.
If you'd like an idea of things to include in swaps, here's a few things I enjoy:
I've always been a fond drinker of tea... but also love herbal teas too. I've been an avid drinker of Rooibos tea for about 5-6 years now, I just love the distinct taste... and drink most of my teas with milk. I also like cinnamon tea, chai, and most fruity herbal teas... I don't like strong tasting teas, like green tea, liquorice or fennel teas.
Though loose leafe tea is supposedly better, I will admit, I am a sucker for simple. So individual tea bags are the best for me! ;)
