Favorite Crafts

I am in love to experiment with colors and different styles. My favorites are botanical, galaxies, animals and vintage. No matter if simple letters to penpals or paper folder for bigger swaps. It is a pleasure to experiment and create something incredible out of scraps. It makes me really happy. Most of the time, if I create a happy mail I try to stick to a certain color scheme or theme. It is a bit of problem of mine. I guess my aesthetic eye couldn't bare it otherwise πŸ˜… I love to receive what you send me, but if you need a bit of advice: Washi tape, sticker flakes or sheets, paper scraps, magazine cut outs for collages, used stamps. I guess only the sky is the limit.

About Me

Hi, I am Julia from Austria, and currently 25 years old. The last ten years I have been into penpalling (also writing letters and sending off postcards) and creating in general. And sometimes I find a new site or community to find new friends around the world. I found swap bot through Instagram, and fell in love almost instantly. Recently I got myself also a postcrossing account to send off more postcards into the world. I am trying to make over letters and swaps friends, because in real life I am a very shy introvert. It makes it way easier to talk about myself and connect with people through letters. Random fact about me: I am also having a cat addiction 😊🐈 but I do love also other animals like tigers, owls, foxes, etc. Thank god I don't have food allergies, so, my food love stands nothing in the way. Unfortunately, to my weight sometimes πŸ˜… But I guess life is too short to limit myself all the time.I also have to say I prefere coffee or hot cocoa over tea. I guess I tried to many teas which were not my taste, and know I barely drink it - especially herbal tea. But I do have to admit I get intrigued by rather unconventional tea tastes like cookies and cream or winter editions.

Favorite Books

Oh, I can't really say I have a favorite book. I do love Thrillers, Horror and Mystery books especially with a few good plot twists, but can also find joy in Science Fiction, Dystopian and Fanatsy books. So, I am sure a brighter personality than my book favorites πŸ˜… I also found myself discovering the site bookcrossing. So I can connect with other book lovers and sending some of my loved books to other people. Please, if you have ever a recommendation about a book, tell me about it! I love to talk about books.

Comment: Thank you for the great swap. Just received it yesterday and it was dated 26 Feb. I wonder about the mail right now. Loved the things you sent. Especially the 2 drawings and the vintage photos. Also you do a great job decorating the envelope. Received another swap from you (How my kitty came to be with me) a couple of days ago. Thanks again.

Comment: Julia, i am so sorry for my not remembering your first message. My house is undergoing major renovations due to a flood in our kitchen overnight. Everything is kind of everywhere. NO ONE should be deprived of entering swaps!! I totally know what that is like, because i have a β€œ1” rating from 2013, and that person doesn’t even swap anymore. I am POSITIVE this is my fault and not yours. Happy swapping, Julia!!!
Response: Hello, thank you for the rating. Could you explain me why only 1? Did you not get my postcard? I am very sorry if you didn't, but if you told me I could have send another one. Thank you in advance for your reply or message.
