Hi, there :)

I hope swapping is just as enjoyable for you as it is for me. I'm a Brazilian English teacher, so anything written in Portuguese and English is completely fine. I also understand a bit of German, Swedish and a lot of Spanish. So feel free to write in any of these languages. I'll do my best to answer accordingly.

About envelopes

Some post officers in my area have the disgusting tendency to take stamps that don't belong to them.

Sadly, the letters get incredibly damaged in the process. Some of them even arrived opened, and I've made several complaints in the post office, but since so many people handle them in its way to me, no one is actually held responsible for this crime.

I actually quit swapping for a while between 2018-2019 because I was getting too frustrated and angry with an activity that's supposed to help me relax.

You could help me with a simple clear envelope or plastic on the outside of your envelope. I use them over my stamps now, but the problem only happens with mail arriving in Brazil. Or you could put some clear tape over them. It makes it impossible to remove them without getting them damaged, so they just don't try it.

I'm quite easily pleased, so I prefer not to list likes and dislikes, so this is my only request. If you can't, it's fine though. I'll rate you a 5 if you sent me your parcel according to the swap requirements of course, but you'd make me really happy if you could help me with that :)

Be yourself

Believe me, you can talk about anything with me. I'm not easily shocked or offended, so feel free to speak your mind.

I respect the people who choose to make their likes and dislikes very clear. Although, I prefer not to do so, since I believe letters are a form of artistic expression that should be entirely up to the writer.

Restrictions

I'm allergic to banana seeds, so if you send me anything banana flavored, I won't be able to enjoy it :( As for teas, my favourites are Lady Grey and Stash Black Forest, but I'm glad to try any flavours, really.

About my swaps

I like to put some extra effort into ANY swaps, so even if you signed up for a simple tea swap or postcard exchange, there will be some extra love inside :) I take swapping very seriously. It's one of my hobbies, but I still see it as a responsability. If you didn't receive my parcel somehow, please contact me so I can fix it for you before you rate me. I just need a little bit of patience and I assure you: I rate as soon as my mail arrives and I post everything on time.

Comment: Wha a beautiful letter and envelope, thank you so much, it really did cheer me up on a cold, grey miserable day at a time when the world seems to be going crazy. It really made me think and I will definitely write back. I'm planning on a whole day hiding away and writing letters this weekend, I can't wait.

Comment: I haven't been *really* surprised by a swap in a long time - WOW! The artwork on the envelope is so cute, and the concept behind it made me laugh. All the tea looks delicious, too. I'd give you 20 hearts if I could!
Response: Aww that was lovely! Thank you for the imaginary sea of hearts ♡ Boi at the postal office now looks at me like "damn crazy lady won't leave any room for the stamps again". Feel free to write back whenever you like. I'm a professional pun artist lol

Comment: Thank you so much for your lovely selection of teas - they all sound really good, looking forward to trying them! Thanks also for your nice letter and the drawings on the envelope - I love them! You're such an artist, I wish I could draw like that :) And no, they're not childish at all (what I meant with that are things such as Teletubbies, My Little Pony... things like that). Oh, and everything arrived without a problem, even without the customs declaration form :)
Response: I'm so glad that you got everything! It was actually pretty fast... Thank you, but you think that's drawing? lol I'm sending you some real drawings someday hahaha Feel free to write back if you want to xoxo

That's so weird that the post office steals your stamps but it's good to note. Thanks for the tip.
