About Me

Hello swap-bot folk! My name's Fab, I'm 23 years old and I'm from Italy. I'm a psychology student and freelance illustrator. I love any kind of art, I enjoy painting, drawing, taking pictures and journaling. I also collect vintage cameras, jars and pins.

In my free time I also enjoy writing, reading, playing video gamesand have long walks in the park.

I have a fluffy guinea pig called Frollino :3 (which means 'shortbread' in english) and a chubby gray cat called Duster.

Please, make sure you seal the envelope very well when sending me something because, especially during long trips, they might arrive open. Also, it might sound a weird request, but if you don't mind, please scribble "documents" on the envelope. It will be less likely that it gets lost, I know it for past experiences! Thank you! For Type 3 swaps: please, put a customs declaration sticker on the package, and mark it as gift. Otherwise, it risks to arrive very late, or even worse, not arrive at all!

before sending food please read the note below.

DISCLAIMER: Please note that Italian postal service might be a little bit slow. Mail for far location such as Asia and Australia, might take a while to arrive, so be patient! if you don't receive something, before rating please PM me and I'll surely resend the swap for you. Thanks.

Private swaps? Yes please!

For USA swappers: I LOVE all the stationery/scrapbooking products from Michaels, but unfortunately I can't find any shop that delivers in my country (at a reasonable price, at least). I would like to trade them for anything! Profile surprises, Italian souvenirs/products.. Just send me a message if interested :)

For EUR swappers: I'm pretty much OK with any kind of private swap. Among the things I can offer, there are: Italian vintage ephemera, tea, profile surprises, postcards, souvenirs and typical products, photographs.. As above, just send me a message if you'd like to swap with me :)

gothbarbie on Dec 12, 2012:

OOOH - just enjoying your blog and your free printables! Thanks for all the fun!

ninou on Sep 21, 2012:

I love your blog - so many wonderful and colorful things to see! I'm also a fan of photography but I went digital a few years ago and must admit it is easier for me! But I did take a class once where I learned how to develop my own pictures, I loved it!

Also, I had a guinea pig when I was a little girl and I loved him dearly. They make such cute little sounds... I love how you named yours! :o)

I already have an idea for what I will send to you through the mail... Hope you like it! (SENG - Double HAPPY-ness)

nightvamp on Jul 18, 2012:

Hi Again,

No problem, mix-ups can happen. I also received the content for Renate, some teabags. Maybe i can send it to her and she can send it forward to me? But i don't know if she received it already.

greetings Belinda
