About Me

Happy August!!!

I am on vacation during August until early September. I will send all swaps, do not worry, but I will not be here much.

Therefore: if there are questions anout the swaps I host, it may take a few days until I am able to answer.

Hava a wonderful summer!!!!!

Hello :)

Somebody asked if I am a smoker, because of this picture. I am a non-smoker :) But I love these Dick Bruna Illustrations from the 60ies and 70ies :)


All swaps I host and most I join are sender's choice.

And second: I love to make my envelopes out of magazine pages, catalogues or calendars. If you do not like these envelopes, then please tell me beforehand, I will use a regular then. This is not about the money. It is about my happy place (making envies while listenings to radioplays) and my tiny-step-a-day for the environment.

Favorite Crafts

  • MailArt. I love it. *** In a nutshell: I so much more love to see your own style even if it is wobbly and your first time, than all those instagram- envelopes. They often all look that similar. That is the same with the "packaging". I prefer so much more to see your style or an eclectic variety or even no "presentation" at all !!! Do what you love most, but if possible: Free your inner joyful you when swapping with me :) :)

  • Journaling - colourful and playful :), full of childrensbooks-illustrations, postcards and fun quotes on the left side, on the right side I journal what comes to mind :) (so not vintage, more "oh, there is another dino-page" haha)

  • Collage

  • Origami

  • handmade stickers

  • Everything with paper :)

What I like.

  • early mornings

  • all things lemon.

  • all things cherry.

  • all things watermelon.

  • dinosaurs

  • yellow. apple green. blue.

  • but to be honest: yellow :)

  • Paper bombs a la @stephiedee

  • crisp air

  • used postage stamps. or mint. (if you cut them yourself from the envelope: note taped ones please & leave at least 1/4inch or 5mm paper around :)

  • kindness

  • richard scarry

  • Dick Bruna

  • classic Paddington Bear. from darkest Peru :)

  • little soft spot for Moonins, Peanuts.

  • honeybees and bumblebees

  • learning Dutch

  • office stickers: dots, arrows,labels,.

  • envelope seals. round stickers. Trader Joe stickers.

  • flat stickers

  • ladybugs 🐞 and toadstools 🍄

  • hedgehogs

  • umbrella & raindrops.

  • book plates

  • Belle & Boo

  • quentin blake

  • Wolf Erlbruch

  • illustrations (children books, flow,..)

  • Mailart. Happy mail. Your style :)

  • Dennisons (-ish) labels

  • Avid reader here :)

  • Jane Austen. Jasper Fforde. Terry Pratchett. Thomas Bernhard. Guilty pleasure: Perry Rhodan. I know...

  • thoughtfulness

  • camping a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g(stickers, cards, images, caravan and tents )

  • random envelopes. lucky dip (bags).

  • BBC 4 extra

  • bicycles

  • Peppermint Patty is my spirit person/cartoon/animal. She is a fabulous iceskater, too :)

  • whales. otters. beavers.

  • You have the perfect vegan recipe?Tuck it in :) :)

  • neon

  • Comic strips.

  • rubber stamps. clear stamps. metal dies.

  • mini-zines

  • Themed Happy mail (think themes like: old telephones, music tapes, panda bears, yellow, moomins,...)

  • And I seem to be the one and lonely person, you can send tiny tiny stickers, notebooks and pencils to :) :) :)

  • Currently: I am looking for grid washitape, stickiistickers and anything with vintage/toy robots :) Folding 1000 papercranes with much needed patterned Origamipaper, 7x7 cm (under 3 inches) preferred, but all sizes are welcome!! Green tea with coconut *

and finally...

Do I have dislikes? Yes, of course I have. Will I list them? No.

I have met wonderful people here at swap-bot. They were carefuI with their swaps and put so much effort in them. I was happy all day long because of their thoughtfulness and kindness, although the swap might not be exactly my taste.

For me swap-bot is about thoughtfulness and inspiration, about humour, kindness and art. I maybe am more into dinosaurs and less into fairies. But if you put a little winged fairy on a dinosaurs' shoulders on your mailart: this fairy would be the most treasured fairy on the planet.

To be honest: there is no chance I would appreciate a swap which is against people (how they look like, whom they love, where they live,..) or animals. But anything put together with respect, care and humour is very much appreciated.

Please send just kidfriendly things. That would be really nice :)

At the moment...

WTA: IFM March ??

LDEM Bonus mail europe & #3 widellia :) & dally & M & widellia :)

LDEM Bonus Europe #3: Spain 28.7.

If you are my swap partner and are a collector of teatags or empty teabags, please let me know. I tuck as many in our swap as I can. or we could do a private swap. I am always open for a swap for other lightweight things like used stamps (preferred) or airmail labels, stickers or your favourite vegan recipe :)

Comment: Oh, ganz lieben Dank für deinen schicken floralen Mix. Der Umschlag ist der Hammer...er ruft Erinnerungen wach: im hintersten Schrank auf dem Dachboden meiner Großeltern gibt es dieses Muster in Form einer Küchenschürze mit passender Tischdecke. Wenn das mal nicht stilecht ist. Und jetzt wünsch ich Dir ein wundervolles Wochenende.
Response: hahahaha :) Ich hab das Papier in Dänemark gekauft, da ist es eindeutig mit mir durchgegangen :) Hab auch Du ein fabelhaftes Wochenende!!
Comment: Thank you weatherwax! Loved the cute little cactus tag and notecards!

Thanks for having me in your tiny tiny group! I like them tiny, to be honest, and I'm mostly doing forum tags at the moment, but saw your group on Steph's profile and thought I'd try y'all out!
