About Me

Oh, why is it so difficult to fill a profile?

Well, I read about swap-bot in the postcrossing forum. It's such a funny idea!

Ok, first I tell about my favourite kind of postcards :-) I display the cards on a wall in the guest bathroom. Sitting and finding strange figures at the plastered wall? No :-O So anybody on my toilet can watch picture postcards from all over the world :-))


PROFILE BASED POSTCARD SWAPS

Just to give my swap partner ideas for postcards I like most:

  • something weird/bizzar/disturbing/naughty (those cards you usually don't have the courage to send to anybody, for the dark side in me...)

  • anything toilet-related ...guess where I put these cards on the wall :-) ( My collection: https://bit.ly/2uccucY )

  • I fell in love with Irina Zeniuk Blue Cats, don't have any yet

  • complete blue cards

  • watching TV with my girls - we like Game of Thrones, iZombie, Sherlock, Shameless

  • Picture postcards like tourists send their friends, the locations should be printed on the picture site, so that you don't need to turn the card to see where it comes from (after several of such turns the cards will be damaged...)


Other things about me:
I have a family (husband, 2 lovely daughters)
I have 2 cats (cats are divine!)
I have no dogs (dogs are evil! ;-))
I like jigsaw puzzles
I like black humor
I am a chaotic housewife
Raisins in cakes are disgusting
... and sometimes I'm not very skilful in expressing myself in english ;-)

Favorite Books

I like to read Andreas Eschbach (a german science fiction author), Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett. I prefer the german translations, it would take too much time for me to try a big book in english.

Favorite Crafts

Knitting, if I had more time... Crocheting, if I had more time... Lace making, if.... and anything with paper

IMPORTANT

IMPORTANT for postal swaps:

I don't know how the system displays my address, I just know that in the USA it is another order.

Here in Germany it is

Name
Street
Postal Code & City
GERMANY

Have fun filling my letterbox :-)

Comment: I had a teacher similar to Mrs Evler when I was in 5th grade. It is a shame when they have to step away from what they're good at. Thank you for sharing!

Comment: Petra - You are sneaky. :) I cannot tell which is the lie based on your profile. You say you think raisins in cakes are disgusting, but does that apply only to cakes? Does it apply to pralines and truffles? I don't know. I think also that being vegetarian might be the lie because you don't mention it in your profile and I think if someone is vegetarian they would say so in case someone might send them non-vegetarian items in a swap. I think 2 cups of coffee a day is a truth - everyone should have 2 cups of coffee a day! :) I will give my final answer ... I think the lie is you could die for praline truffles. Am I correct? :)
Response: lol - it seem's I'm a good liar :-)) Luckily raisins in praline truffles are quite seldom, it's tricky to make raisins disappear when they are already in my mouth - ugh! It's the coffee, I don't drink any coffee :-))

Comment: I never liked taking gym. I always told them I had cramps because they were all men, so they always let me sit out :) Happy Swapping!

Wow, I really thought it was the praline truffles! You don't like coffee?? Oh well, all the more for me then. :)

summerhawk on Aug 8, 2011:

I forgot to say in my rating for the 2 Truths & a Lie swap: Thank you for the beautiful postcard - I really like the photo on the front. It looks like a place I would love to live. :)

READ MY PROFILE AND LEAVE A COMMENT-- Hi! I especially enjoyed your description of the postcards on the wall in the bathroom! How genius! I can imagine people getting entrapped in the fantasy thoughts of far away places and forget they're in the bathroom, emerging some extended time later! ha ha HAPPY SWAPPING

lefroggy on Jul 22, 2011:

that's a strange place to put postcards up.. lol I don't think i would have ever even thought about that, I love collecting postcards too. I hope you have fun during your time at swap bot! :D (Read my profile and write a comment)

HeidiJean on Jul 21, 2011:

Isn't your first swap exciting? I would love to send you a post card from New York for you to hang in your bathroom! I think that's a really interesting idea. You should try to add a nice, detailed "dislikes/wishlist" part to your profile, it'll make swaps easier for your partners! This comment is for Read my profile and write a comment swap! Happy swapping!
