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.

Comment: Hi Karina and thank you so much for this beautiful bird flip tag. Wow - I love everything about this. The papers and images that you used are so pretty and your touches of lace and bits of ephemera add so much to each of the tags. And I love the machine stitching around each of the tags. Thank you again - this is just wonderful and so well done!

Comment: Karina, You sent me such an amazing package. The envelope and the journal card are absolutely beautiful. I love the wax seal you added to the card. Thank you for the many extras you included. The stickers are my favorite, but I love everything. Excellent swap.
pernie123 rated for VES: An Envelope of Ephemera on Apr 6, 2023
Comment: I I like the post card. I have not been to Hamburg. I guess my trips were only to southern parts of Germany. Printed German is easier for me to read. I did have two years of college German . If you don't use it, you forget it.
