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!

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 ;-)

My Postcard Preferences

Ok, 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 :-))


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

  • I fell in love with Irina Zeniuk Blue Cats, sooo cute! My collection

  • complete blue cards

  • USA: Can you help complete my state collection?

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

  • Picture postcards like tourists send their friends - but only if sent naked from their origin. 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...)

  • oh, and please - NO cat postcards (photo). Although I do have cats and I love cats. But I have already hundreds of cat postcards, they multiply faster than mice... :-))

  • and please - NO selfmade-cards (it would be like "pearls before swine"), NO ad-cards/free cards, commercial-cards, Thank you for respecting that.

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 reading 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 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

Postal Code & City

Have fun filling my letterbox :-)

why so much electronic swaps?

At the moment I am in quite a few electronic swaps.

It is just to train and improve my English skills.

And in contrast to postcard swaps I have no trouble with unusual handwriting :-)

At work I only write business English, and that's no fun, sending payment reminders every week...

Comment: Thank you SO much for the orca postcard!! This is going in a frame! Yeah, I wonder why no one asks for sperm whales either. They are magical, too. You need a fresh copy of Moby Dick by the way. Well, thank you again very much for this beautiful postcard!

Comment: So much fun to do this swap. Unfortunately my mailman didn't ring. But I understand....it rained cats and dogs. It was horrible. 10 Minutes later the sun smiled at all of us.

tentmari rated for Profile hello from all over #1 on Jul 19, 2019
Comment: Thank you for the profile greeting. To address your wonderings-- my kids are really quite normal. No piercings, no sagging, no goth makeup/attire; my daughter has one very small tattoo, but that's all. They are just more "current -minded" than me and tend to think I'm a bit old school for the times. πŸ˜‹

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

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!
