About Me

Hey everyone, I'm Chen from Israel. I currently live in Afula with my husband and our super cute girl. I am a 35 year old social worker and gerontologist (which means I work with the elderly).

I'm a family person and enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I really love to travel and my favorite cities are Manhattan and London (therefore I also LOVE shopping). I belive that one of the most important things in live is a good sense of humour and try to laugh as much as I can. Really, anything but racist or homophobic humour.

I'm not allergic to anything but I don't really love Vanilla scent.

*** Please take into consideration that I live in Israel and international mail can take up to a month in certain cases. Thank u for your understanding! ***


My new love and addiction are planners and organizers. I have a Domino personal size Filofax. Please note that Hebrew is written from right to left.

I love stationery - stickers, sticky notes, paperclips, washi tape, cute pens, PL cards.

As for the writing - I love pens and almost any pen will do but my favorite is Uni-ball signo 0.38 mm. You can't get these in Israel and if I get one in a swap - I'll be one of the happier people alive!!!

My father collects advertising pens so I don't mind getting them as well.

Favorite Crafts

My big love is cardmaking and anything related to that - paper, stickers (not layered), bakers' twine, stamps, ink and enamel dot (these are my favorite!). I love bold colors.

Favorite Books

I love reading and anything book related. My favorite books are:

  • The neverending story - Michael Ende and Ralph Manheim

  • The five people you meet in heave - Mitch Albom

  • Water for elephants - Sara Gruen

  • Harry Potter - J.K. Rowling

  • Q & A - Vikas Swarup - Jonas Jonasson

  • The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared

  • Have a Little Faith: A True Story - Mitch Albom

  • The time keeper - Mitch Albom

  • The first call from heaven - Mitch Albom

  • For one more day - Mitch Albom

  • My Family Right or Wrong - Ephraim Kishon

  • O Henry Short Stories

  • The bookthief - Markus Zusak

Favorite Television

These are some of my favorites:

  • How I met your mother

  • Grey's anathomy

  • Sherlock

  • Elementary

  • The newsroom

  • The west wing

  • Jane the virgin

My Likes

  • I love Disney, especially Disney princesses.

  • I LOVE stationery, enamel dots, paper crafts, stickers, washi tape, sticky notes, rubber and clear stamps, planner inserts, anything book related, cartoons, letter sets, pens - especially those with felt tips.

  • I also LOVE nail polish - any color, glitter or size will do.

  • My favorite scent is Lavender.

  • Cartoons. any kind but mostly the Smurffs, Disney, Scooby Doo.

  • Owls, foxes, hedghogs, eledants, giraffes.

  • I have a good sense of humour. Dark and/or dry humour are the best but please don't send any racist or homophobic homour.

  • But mostly I'm just interested and delighted to see what surprises arrive... and if I really don't like something for some reason, I'll find it a good home somewhere :)

Life Project

Lately I'm into Life Project. I have a simple stories' SN@P! binder, size 6x8 and started documenting our life.

Please don't send

  • Please don't send me crosses, angels, or anything religious and / or stuff that relates to non-Jewish holidays (Christmas, thanksgiving etc.).

  • If I get something I don't like or won't use, I think it makes sense to send it to another swapper, someone who I think will love it. Of course, I don't mind if you do the same :-)

My Wish List

  • Nail polish.

  • Planner stuff - stickers, stamps, paper clips, charms...

  • Pictures / postcards of old people (I work with elderly and would love to decorate my office with that).

  • Cactus anything - stickers, photos, PC, magazine cut outs, charms...

Swap Bot

I'm a really easy swap partner and would love alomost everything you send. I love to wait for the mail (my postman and I are best friends by now :-)) and I love the surprise that an envelope holds.

If for some reason you didn't get anything from me, PLEASE contact me before rating me1 or 3. If you send me a message I will gladly re-send the swap to you.

Thank you so much for sending my postcard from Send it Home back!! ❤😊

Hi Chen! I'm sorry for saying this so late, but THANK YOU for sending me items for the Cute Stationary of the Month-October Swap. I wasn't flaked on, but the person I sent to had gotten suspended during the swap, so I have no idea if she even received her items. You are so kind and generous to try and make it right. You didn't have too, but in doing so, it shows me the type of person you are, which is you like to right a wrong. I loved all that you sent me! Sending hugs and kisses your way. Thanks again girl :)

Pinterest - Made in Felt, you have flaked on my swap, after I sent you a reminder on Saturday too. Please get in contact with your partners and send them the link to your board to avoid low ratings.
