Including a note is much likely to give you a heart; sending a note along with the swap gives me the impression that you did more than just stuffing random items into an envelope, copy/pasting random links into the e-mail, etc. before sending it off. It's that tiny difference!
I'm rarely a late sender - though it has happened. If so, it's usually within a reasonable time frame, so the delay is next to unnoticable.
I do have a tendency to do things at the last moment, though I do try to do things in good time when I have the possibility to do so.
I am by no means a flaker.
I am always certain that I can fulfill the requirements of a swap - and so far, my 5,0 average tells me that I haven't been wrong. I always try to check up on profiles and base what I send on that when I'm able to.
If I suspect that what you sent won't reach me, I will let you know. Until then (or until the rating), don't worry.
I'm a bad rater (as in: I don't always remember to rate). I do apologize for that.
When it comes to rating me, I prefer that you contact me prior to rating me if you have any issues. There might be an explanation; I always send, and I'll happily re-send if you didn't receive anything, or if what you received didn't live up to your expectations.
When entering a swap, I usually make sure that I have a section in my profile in the category of the swap. Please do read it - and ask if you're in doubt or have any questions!
This should be a pretty eclectic/versatile thing to list - though I don't like every single artist within the genre, nor do I always like every single track/album by the artist. I tried to give a general idea of what I like here. I'm sure I'll be expanding it with time.

Children's litterature, fairy & folk tales, autobiographies, fantasy, and cookbooks.

Tales written by Hans Christian Andersen or collected by the Bros. Grimm.

As for books in specific languages, there are absolutely no musts - but languages I'm using, need to practice, or derustify respectively, are Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, English, German, Dutch, and Spanish. Books (except for cookbooks) in other languages are also welcome - they might just train my imagination or help me practice new languages. :)
Writing, photography, drawing, baking. Do they even count as crafts?!
Anyway. That's the closest I can come up with.
I'll leave it up to you to pick a postcard - pick something you like, or from somewhere you're interested in. Tell me about it, why you like it, why you picked it.
I like travelling - thus touristy stuff in the postcard department. Ideas for such postcards could be:
* Send me a postcard from your city, town, or neighborhood - a general postcard or from a specific sight/site.
* Do a bit of staycationing, or send me a card from a vacation somewhere else, and tell me about it - like you would have done with a friend or family member.
Something else I find curious is postcards with recipes on them. These recipes should be in Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, English, German, or Dutch if I should have a chance of understanding them - otherwise I will need a translation of the recipe.
My favorites are spicy herbal teas (which I enjoy drinking straight) and black teas (with sugar and milk).
I do like oolong as well.
I still have to learn how to drink green and white teas - not that I have anything against them, but I can't figure out whether to drink them with or without sugar and/or milk in order to like them.
As for rooibus (red tea), I really prefer something else - but I'm not against that one, either.
When in swaps, it would be nice to receive a personal note from you along with the tea. I find that it just makes that tiny difference from seemingly just shoving random tea into an envelope and send it off to actally seem like you have paid attention and/or put some thought into it.
Ingredients I like to use:
* Fresh fruit
* Minced meat
(not necessarily all in the same recipe (though I do do a mean fruit tart with marzipan)).
Other than that, I appreciate:
* Buns, rolls, and bread
* Spreads and preserves
* Lunchpack munchies and goodies
* Coffeebreak munchies and goodies
* Seasonal: Summer, early fall, and Christmas (if you don't do Christmas, try something from a big day or festival in your religion/culture)
* Cheap and inventive
I have no known allergies or diseases dictating a specific diet.
