About Me

Oldie but Goldie ;-) I am already 40something years old (sigh LOL)....fun loving talkative, who doesn't like phone calls n hates cell phones ! Mom to 2 gorgeous Kids (19 & 11 years old), divorced. Home is where my heart is :-) Always busy, must keep my hands working, addicted to letters, books,journaling, ebay, crafting and.... swaps !!!!!!!!

I love the idea of re-duce, re-use, re-cycle, re-gift, re-..... ! You can do it for me as I might do it for you !

ANGELS NEEDED: I never got something from cmarois for this swap: http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/67945 Now her profile is deleted :-( Generously angeled by PINKKIAPILA ! Thank you bunches !!

I will never ger back my journal for this swap: http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/68369 and the profile is also deleted :-(

Seems it is more safe to swap in groups... Very sad !!!

Favorite Music

Since many years I'm in love with Queen ! - Freddie forever ! Unfortunately I went to my first Queen-concert, after Freddies death. - Paul Rodgers is great. Queen still rocks !!!!!!!!!!

Despite that I love so many different singers and bands: Jimmy Somerville (Communards, Bronski Beat), Klaus Lage Band, Femi Kuti, Angelique Kidjo, Simply Red,Joe Cocker.....

As well as music from the 60ties to 80ties!!

I also love Roseanne, Lost and x-files. Of recent I started watching "Tatort" on TV! New discovery : The Following,Kevin Bacon is truly great.

Despite that.... Well, cinema is way better !

Favorite Crafts

Journals + Journaling I have several journals going on and of recent I fell in love with making them myself. For myself. I just send them out to friends or in swaps before, now I Keep some :-) I love those journals where you stick in the remnants of the day and journal little. I am always open for private Journal swaps !!!

Cards Not very often, but for special occasions !

any kinda "paper works", e.g. Origami, window decos....

And recently I discovered the great fun of making ATC's and inchies as well as Rolos.

If you have any left over pieces of paper, you can always include them in your swaps or letters !!! I am crazy about them ! I am looking for some Chevron patterns, green(with or without patterns), Polka dots, glitter, patterns in General... I love them all ;-)


Reading, dunno how people can live without reading

Soccer/football, my club is FC Cologne,watching is enough stress, lol

Cooking, very creative and relaxing for me, no matter if 5 or 50 people are coming to eat. But I hate to eat alone, very sad. I am on my way to be vegan, very interesting and so delicious !

Card- and board games great and fun way to be with family and friends.I love Carcassonne, Monopoly,..... Just now I got Qwixx,wonderful !

I am addicted to the audio-books of " Die drei Fragezeichen" (three investigators) ! We have been to 3 of their live shows and I love them the more by now ! I grew up listening to the LP's, now CD's and I have given it over to my son !!!!
