About Me

Attention- Very Important!!!!

Please do always add a custom declaration sticker on all of your swaps ( only important for packages. Simple letters do not need that sticker)when your country does not belong to the european union otherwise I will have to go to the customs office to pick your swap up. This is really time wasting as I have to go 20 Minutes by car to reach it!!! I also have to pay for every day they keep it there...

42years old, crazy for penpalling,( feel free to ask for a penfriendship i am always open to make new friends from all over the world)horses and swapping I am a married housewife and mom to a 16 years old big boy and a 8 year old . I collect everything horse related, I have a huge collection of figurine model horses. I am addicted to souvenir magnets and would love to have one fron each country. Magnet= Heart:-)

I also swap stationery, stickers, adress labels, postcards, penpal items, souvenirs etc.. It is lot´s of fun to get fat envies:-) :-)

I have been riding horses for more than 25 years and I have had a own horse for 21 years but unfortunately had it to put to sleep caused by old age .

I have a dog and a lizard( bearded dragon). I am a huge animal lover with passion for horses and reptiles:-)

I am very tolerant to everything and everyone, I am not the picky kind of swapper that rates down very often . In fact I have never rated a 3 !!!!! It is easy to please me and I always try to please my swap partners. Unfortunantely some swap partner rated me a 3 because they had the opinion that I did not please them 100%... it makes me a little bit sad to be honest cause it never was or is my intention to dissapoint people. When I sign up for swaps I never expect the maximum of gifts, I am happy when I get a fat package, but I am just as happy when I get a smaller one. I would never rate a 3 when people just forget to wrap gifts etc... but that is only my personal opinion. I also would never flake and always try to sent swaps out in time.

The only and first time I was 4 days late in sending out a swap I was immediately rated with a 3!!!!!!!! I don´t think that 4 days late is a tragedy especially I was partnered with this person in several former swaps and she knows that I am trustful! I am quite dissapointed now.... but that´s life.


PLEASE PM ME WHEN YOU DON´T GET THE SWAP!! I have no reason for not sending out swaps, sometimes snailmail swaps get lost in the mail, that´s no mysteria, that´s reality!

About rating

I usually rate every swap the day I get it cause I am online at least once a day. I am sorry to see that a lot of people here don´t rate regularly.

I try to contact you when I don´t get the swap, but I will rate a 1 when I never get an answer back.

Comment: Sadly this was 9 days late with no notice & no response to my message. That's impressive that you can read & write in 4 languages...I bet having penpals that speak those languages keeps you on your toes!
