ABOUT ME

Updated list of countries my country can send to


3.Nov.20: Sometimes I experience that text goes missing from my profile. I guess this happens when I update one section, and then another section gets messed up. So right now my likes and dislikes are not completed. I will update this section as soon as possible.


Hi, my name is Elisabeth. Been living in Norway my entire life, but dreaming of a house in Florida, USA, as I feel so much at home there. I'm in a domestic relationship with my wife-to-be, we've been together for 4 years. We have no kids, and no pets.

Some of my interests are: travel, postcards, sewing, knitting & crocheting, food (WFPB), the environment, Netflix-series, yoga & meditation, music, reading, green indoor plants, coffee, tea, skydiving...

Some of my favourites series on Netflix are: Friends, Bojack Horseman, After Life, You, Mindhunter, Hinterland, Real Detective, the OA, Dark (Dunkel), The IT crowd, Modern Family...

I listen to a lot of different kinds of music, all depending on my mood. Often I also like the sound of complete silence. But some of my favourite bands and artists are: Foo Fighters, Queen, Dido, Highasakite, Lera Lynn, London Grammar, Lorde, Kafka Tamura, Avenged Sevenfold and many more.

PRIVATE SWAPS:

I am always open for private swaps, here's what I can offer: - Used stamps - Postcards - Tea - Washi tape samples - Letter sheets - Home made envelopes - Fabric samples - Ribbons

DEAR PARTNERS

Are you sending to me? Please read this:

  • Sending late? contact me!
    For electronic swaps, I will NOT contact you before I rate down. It is YOUR responsibility to make sure you have sent by the swap deadline.
    For type 2 or 3 swaps I will contact you if I haven't received within a reasonable amount of time.

  • Please don’t use plastic for wrapping. Plastic from the manifacturer is ok. Please use paper instead, old newspaper is just fine.

  • Please DO NOT cover the entire envelope in tape! I find these really hard to open, and I hate it when I am not able to open my mail without using scissors or a knife. LEAVE THE TOP OR ONE SIDE OF THE ENVELOPE FREE FROM TAPE! Thank you.

  • For type 3 swaps or thick type 2: If the envelope is thicker than a normal envelope with a letter, please fill out a customs declarations form and stick it to the envelope. Mark as a gift, state its value and write as detailed as possible what the envelope contains. The customs can open all mail if it is not labelled, and I have been unfortunate to receive mail that has been teared up and broken. It also takes a lot longer for me to receive mail without the customs form, especially around Christmas. Ask your post office for a customs declarations label when you send. Thank you so much for your help.
    Please not that if you don’t do this, the swap might take more than a month to reach me, no matter where you are sending from. Customs are S L O W !

  • Sending extra's will not necessarily give you a heart.

I always rate! If you haven't received my rating yet, I probably haven't received your swap. Please note that it might take a few days after I receive before I rate. We only also get mail delivered here every second day (affective as from July 7th 2020). So one week we receive mail Mon+Wed+Fri and the next Tue+Thu.

Swappers who speak German and/or Spanish speaking swappers:

  • Bitte schreiben Sie Ihre Notiz auf Deutsch, danke! Ich lerne Deutsch und möchte die Sprache so oft wie möglich verwenden.
  • Por favor, escriba su nota en español, gracias! Estoy aprendiendo español y me gustaría usar el idioma con la mayor frecuencia posible.

Are you receiving from me? Please read this:

  • I will reuse envelopes, wrapping paper or similar whenever I can. Wrapping and envelopes is expensive in Norway, and I also don't see the point of throwing away something that is perfectly useful.

  • I always send on time. If by any chance, life gets in the way of me sending on time, I will notify you. If you haven’t heard from me, and I am late sending out my swap, you are of course free to rate me down.

  • Please be kind and rate me when you have received my swap. If you haven't received my swap after a month, please contact me and I will resend.

  • I mark my swaps as sent on the day I deliver them to the PO or put them in a red PO box. I always mark AFTER I have delivered my mail.

Please note that the Norwegian postal service only delivers mail every second day. That also affects my outgoing mail if I put them in a red box in my neighbourhood. I may post my swaps on a Friday afternoon and it won't get stamped until Monday or Tuesday. Same if I deliver it late in the afternoon on Monday, it won’t be stamped until Tuesday or Wednesday. I try however to deliver my mail directly to the postoffice, but that's in town 20 minutes by car from where I live.

TEA

I prefer bagged tea, but loose tea is also ok as long as you pack them well and mark them with brand/name, ingredients and expiry date.

If you send teabags with text in another language than English, please write a note with the English translation of the name of the tea and the ingredients. (Pickwick teas are fine to send without translation. I understand Dutch and German.)

And this shouldn't be necessary, but please don't send expired teas...

My absolute favourites are the Moomins (the four first ones) tea from Nordqvist: https://nordqvisttea.com/collections/moomin-teas/products/best-moment-of-the-day

Comment: Hi! We move about every 3 years. So I get to stay long enough to make friends, and maybe get a job haha. It can be very stressful, but so far I've had fun exploring. Missing family is probably the hardest. Thank you for the postcards! I hope to visit Norway one day and be able to see so many of the sites.
Response: I can imagine the missing the family part. Even though I have all my family in Norway, I don't get to see them too often. And my closest friends live 100km away, so I still have them kind of close. I hope you get to visit Norway some time :) Thanks a lot for the rating and heart. Happy holidays!

Hey,
I hope you are well during these times!
Here are some pictures of Professor McGonagall.
She is actually one of my favourite characters 🙂

I really love the fact, that her Animagus is a cat
