Jan 2022- I have both a German address and U.S. address. I just switched to the German address as the primary for swapping because things arrive very quickly, and my U.S. address has been painfully slow, and also because my U.S. post office had a mishap and a lot of mail got returned to sender. If you'd like to use my U.S. address, just PM me for it, but know that it will be at least 2 months before I can rate you. Packages arrive quickly, but flat mail is sloooow.
Hi, I'm Kelly. I'm an American living in Germany and I homeschool my 3 kids, who are 13, 9, and 7. We use a mix of Montessori with some Charlotte Mason. We like hands on learning materials and lot of outdoor time- tree climbing, beachcombing, hiking, kayaking, etc.
I spend my free time creating in many different media. I am always in a middle of several projects and already thinking about the next one.
I am also learning Japanese and German.
Harry Potter series, Outlander series, Jane Austin, Roller Girl (Tween graphic novel that everyone should read!) historical fiction in general, the manga series Fruits Basket
Friends, X-Files, Gilmore Girls, Stranger Things, The Queen's Gambit, Call the Midwife, Firefly.
nature journaling, woodworking, glass beadmaking, watercolor painting, bookbinding, photography, Dotee dolls (does anyone still make these??), hand-carved stamps, bookbinding, needle felting, sewing, Postcrossing,
I also like...nature and the outdoors, forest animals, chocolate, postcards, playing cards with fun backs (single or decks), glass beads, lip balm, bookbinding supplies, handmade books, postcards, stickers, wood toys, fabric, polymer clay charms,
I like things related to water (oceans, ponds, boats, frogs, etc), food (especially tacos, cookies, chocolate, or Kawaii doodles of food), pregnancy/childbirth/goddess related things, Girl Scout stuff...
My favorite animals are rabbits, cats, chickens, owls, elephants, foxes, and frogs.
I also enjoy receiving things for my kids. They like Kawaii stationary and stickers, postcards from around the world, animal related things (especially hamsters and cats), mushroom related things, and miniature things (like dollhouse-sized trinkets).
Disney, dogs, coffee, artificial sweeteners, politics, generic/inspirational quotes, religious things. Quotes are completely wasted on me. I don't even read my teabags! :) I cannot receive coffee due to postal regulations. It will get returned to sender!
I much prefer postcards over note cards. I love postcards with long messages and prefer that they be send naked (no envelope), because I love a good postmark and unique stamps. I'm not a fan of quotes. See my likes above for ideas :)
My favorite teas are green teas with fruit. I'll take any teas though, as between the 5 members of my family, someone will like just about anything.
We have a few Frankendecks in the works. My daughter is collecting playing cards with pictures of birds. She needs a 6 of clubs, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, and K of spades, 3 and 9 of hearts, and 2, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, and K of diamonds. I'm making one with the special Bicycle cards and just need a Q of diamonds, 4 and K of hearts, and K of clubs to complete it. My floral themed deck is now complete! :)
