About Me

I`m in my 50s and mom of three adult children.. As a teenager I have had a great number of penpals. During parentship it went lost, because of little sparetime. Now I started again.

It is gorgeous to find wonderful swaps in the mailbox, but I have to say that making swaps is the same important thing for me.

I spent time and effort in my swaps and most times it is a satisfying creating process. I will always do only swaps which I like and will enjoy doing. It´s not possible for me to create something I don`t like.

When I join a swap with a craft that`s new to me, I always will make the item before partners are assigned, sothat I can drop from swap when I´m not satisfied with the result.

So my ratings grow slowly, but that`s absolutely fine for me.

If you would like to make a crafty one-by-one swap with me I really would appreciate that. Please feel free to ask.

May I please you

Please do not add my swapbot name to the mailing adress. Thanks!

Comment: Oh my, Elke thank you so much for the wonderful Dreamcatcher themed flipbook! It is really unique. I love the goodies you added, they are unexpected and really interesting. The dream catcher legend is so interesting and I loved how you added it to the flipbook. I also enjoyed reading your letter and learning more about you. And I love the white feathered dreamcatcher so much! It is now hanging next to my craft desk and I can look at it everyday! Thank you so much for the fantastic swap! Take care, Annabelle xoxoxo

Comment: Ich habe heute auch Post bekommen! Unsere beiden Karten müssen sich ja auf halber Strecke getroffen haben. :) Danke für das wundersame Wesen! Das helle Brustgefieder sieht fast wie zwei Hasenpfoten aus. Macht das Tier gleich noch einen Tick seltsamer.
