About Me

So me...well, I'm 38, German but somehow I must have been Italian in a former life, feel so close to everything Italian. The music especially but also so many other things about this country.

My cats are the most important part of my life, they keep me going in hard times. Lissy, 3, Persian. Linus, 2, a rescue who has some long hair genes as well. Cat hair all over, lol. Well, I try to keep it away from my swaps but it's difficult as they always want to help. Try to be extra careful if you are allergic though.

Penpalling. Most important hobby. Well, the friendships I have and hold dear. I started as a child and never stopped. Can't imagine a life without letters.

I love everything about psychology, meditation, alternative healing etc. Still think about making this my job one day. Long term dreams though.

Languages. I looove them. So I'm always happy about a note in your language. While I can also write in Italian I feel not confident enough to use other languages but can understand if you write in Spanish or French and also Dutch which is my favorite language to study at the moment. (I'm sure I can read in other languages as well if it's something easy)

Others. I love soccer. And traveling. Depends on money of course. Chocolate, really important.Well, I try to loose some weight but what would life be without chocolate. I love long walks, beaches, sunsets.

Music While I often listen to the radio I also have my favorite singers that I love to listen to on youtube. Surprise, surprise, all Italian :-) : Laura Pausini, Giorgia, Biagio Antonacci, Elisa etc.


For postcard swaps: Topics I like:


*map cards

*Landscape, beaches, cities, historical sites



*Black and white

*Something funny, unusual

I love tea, especially in the colder seasons. Herbal teas (just no plain ones), chai, yogi tea, green tea (with flavor) are always welcome.

I'm addicted to paper. Really, I love making handmade envelopes. And I can never have enough paper, stickers, washi tape. Oh and writing paper. Penpalling is my main passion. So there can never be enough.

Inspirational stuff. Be it quotes, articles etc.


Pocket letters

no please Please no magnets, I have no place where to put them

Not into cosmetics and I have no bath tub

I love to try tea but please no plain green or black tea, mixed with something is always fine.

I am glad to hear it arrived. I hope you find projects for the little pieces. They are super fun to work with but I just buy way too many of them to ever use them all up! :)

Dear Manuela, Thank you for the lovely pocket letter you made me for my October wishlist. I enjoyed your letter very much, and the Autumn pocket letter was very sweet with all its adorable little surprises tucked in. My kitties are also cozy lazy crafting companions. :) Thanks again for the time and care you put into this surprise for me.
