Please know that I am a honest and reliable swapper. Please don't give me a bad rating without getting in touch with me first.

Mail can take more than 4 weeks to arrive to overseas. And it can happen that something got lost.

When you didn't receive my swap after 6 weeks I always am willing and happy to resend! I always send my swaps!

Please also be aware that the sent date is not always conformable with the date you see on the post mark. When I get a swap ready (very often in the evenings after a working day) I mark it to be sent. Then I put it into the mailbox the following day after working too. That day mail will not be sent anymore, only the next morning. So it can have a difference of two days (or even more when I put the mail in the box on a Friday evening) from my sent mark to the post mark. Please be aware of this! Thank you.

I am happy with every swap I receive and to be honest, when I receive mail from here, I never take a look at the post mark and compare with the sent date...

About Me

I am a creative soul and big animal lover. In my passport it is written that I am in my early 50thies. But I am still 30 in mind. I live together with my partner and my two sweet cats who are my babies. I'm a HSP and so need a lot of time for myself. Crafting is the best balance to my quite busy and hectic working life. My craft room is my fave place to be. There I feel lucky, surrounded with a smell of papers and rubberstamps. There I can leave the hectic and problems behind. I have been crafting most of my life. It's not a Hobby, but a passion. One of two big passions; the other one is to write letters. It always brighten up my days finding a personal letter in my mailbox next to bills and advertisings.

Favorite Crafts

I have experienced a lot of craft techniques in my past. As my spare time is limited I stuck myself into that what I can best and gives me the most joy; papercrafts!! My heart beats for design papers, clear-/rubberstamps, die cuttings, coloring mediums and embellishments. As I also love to color it's a perfect combination.

I mainly am creating cards, Pocket Letters, Flipbooks, ATC's, postcards. I love to create themed projects and also enjoy to swap artwork with other creative souls.

One of my fave occasion is Halloween and I also love to create with the Prima Dolls.
