About Me

last update July-25-2017

37 years old german scrapbooking, wool and fabric addict, living in the middle of Germany with my husband, two kids and my cats Mimi and Momo. ❤️😺❤️💁🏻❤️👱🏻❤️👦🏻❤️👶🏼❤️😺❤️

I am looking forward to have a lot of fun with several interesting swaps. I do understand English, French and German. But please show understanding for my mistakes.

I always, always, always send my swaps. So in case you haven't received anything PM me please. It might have get lost or has lost its address label (I had this once or twice, fortunately the letter came back to me and I was able to resend).

I pledge to rate. I have a list, tracking my received swaps carefully and I am tracking my received ratings, too. So if I have not rated you I have not received your swap. I will try to communicate with you. Always!

Favorite Crafts

I really have a lot of fun with everything fabric related. Especially 1930's repro and contemporary fabrics. I love polka dots, stars and stripes but tiny flowers are cute, too. I enjoy colors like red, green and light blue, light brown and yellow. Aqua and red is a great colour combo, too. I am a huge fan of Moda fabrics. But no batiks, please and please choose 100% cotton. No acrylics or acrylic blends. You can send scraps, too. But please at least 3"x3" in size.

I love scrapbooking, photography and art, too. Scrapbooking-wise I enjoy dies, stickers, labels and buttons. Project Life is great, too. Think tiny here. I love vintage Epherma (old playing cards, childbook pages, library tags etc.). But there is a difference in between junk and vintage. 😉

I collect fountain pens like Lamy AL-Stars and other brands. So I love inks for those as well as Stationery to put them into use. I love lettersets in bright colors and with fancy art. But please do not send single sheets without envelopes.

For postcard-swaps: I love vintage-style cards, postcards with picture book illustrations or with funky, colorful art on it. I do love maps on cards and cards with encouraging quotes, too. If a swap asks for blank tourist postcards I would be more than happy if you could substitute them with non-touristy ones. It just don't make any sense to me to have cards from places I have never been to. Only exception: Map Cards.

For Washi Swaps: I love vintage themes, orange is the color I have not a lot of, feathers, extra wide, flowers, stars, stripes, mail related (i. e. Stamps, airmail, pens...), ABCs, animals (especially foxes and birds), cities. Alain Gree.

I do knit (organic fibers, no acrylics or acrylic blends) and do embroidery (love Cosmo, DCM etc)

Waldorf is my thing. Everything natural related is great. I am always looking for new additions to our nature table. (In case you choose something nature related and are out of the EU think of all the custom regulations, please)

Purple and neon-colours are awful! I really don't like Kawaii, scary things or horror.

I cannot stand the smell of smoke. And please don't send any magazine clippings or napkins. I have no use for them, sorry. Whole magazine pages with lovely, eye-catching graphics are fine though.

Favorite Television

I don't miss any episode of the german telenovela "Rote Rosen" (red roses) and have a lot of fun watching TV series (I.e. SOA, homeland, Mad Men, House of cards...)

Yummie and Bäääääh (Food

YUMMIE: I really love chocolate, biscuits and jellybabies. Coffee and juice is great. No tea please. I think curry is an extraordinary spice. Cherry-taste is really great as well as liquorice. Coconut and vanilla is nice to smell. Everything sour is well appreciated here, sweets-wise. I love indish and italian-food. No MSG here (see below).

BÄÄÄÄÄH: How horrible is banana...urgs...I don't like to smell and to taste it gettinggossebumps Aniseed mints are horrible as well. Green tea isn't mine as well as fruit-tea combinations like plum-date-taste. I don't like strawberry. Coke and Sodas are terrible.

!!!:I am allergic to grapefruit and to monosodium glutamate (MSG) / Mononatriumglutamat (flavour enhancer) !!!


I wear black and white, red, blue and dark green. I only wear socks with stripes. I wear an US 8.5 and an EU 38 size -sockwise and a size M to L in clothes.

I love headbands with stripes, flowers, stars and polka dots. But not those hard ones - I like those cloth-ones. I lovelovelove ouchless hairbands.

Because I have really sensitive skin I prefere not to swap bath and beauty products. Neither for me nor for the family.


My children are five and a 1 year old. They are both boys.

We do not use plastic toys but love everything Waldorf and Montessori related.

We do like jigsaw-puzzle and love to craft (think of colour books, drawing etc), listen to music and make music by ourself.

Please choose nothing Disney related. Except for Cars and Star Wars (the bigger one is a huge fan)

The kids wear organic fabrics, cotton, real wool (no acrylic or acrylic blends), only. We prefer green over blue and love red and orange (the older one) and grey (the little one) Their seizes are (US) 24mths and 7T.

Shipping to Germany

Please note on anything larger then a letter from outside the European Union will need out a filled out customs form. Please mark as a gift, as swaps are a gift and not a purchase. If you are shipping from within the US and you print your postage online you can save 20% off in shop pricing, customs form is included in the printout (yeah!)

The following items cannot be shipped to Germany:

-Anything containing meat in any form, fresh dairy products such as cheese items

-fresh plant products or mushroom

-consumable dietary supplements

-any medications

-copyrighted materials (like burned cds or dvds, originals are fine though)

-Adult content like alcohol, cigarettes, weapons, drugs, anything illegal or endangered. Please do not send.

Finished food items containing dairy are fine, as are commercial spices for cooking, body care, essential oils, cosmetics, etc.

Swapping with Me

I always try to turn your swap items into something extra lovely. Therefore I read your profile closely and try to match all the items I send out with your likes. I always put a little extra in my swaps. Just because it makes me happy and hopefully you will love that, too.

Are you interested in a private swap? Awesome. 😍 Shot me a DM and we can figure out if we can find something we both are happy to swap.

A wishlist? Here you are:

I love fabrics (100% cotton) in all colours. But please think tiny when it comes to the pattern on it. No batics, please.

Scrapbooking/planner/PL items but please no eyelets. And patternwise think tiny, too

Sticker (preferable for PL or scrapbooking, but cute ones are great, too). I love stamp shaped ones!!! Small ones to fit on a postcard. Flakes. Vintage, animal, flower, stars and heart themed are amazing. I love gold, too.

Wool (no acrylics or acrylic blends)

Wooden toys for the boys or something for the bath tub or for the sandbox.

Rubber and clear stamps and inks (well wrapped, please). Used but cleaned is absolutely fine.
