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.
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
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.
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.

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
I have recently been diagnosed with celiac disease (Jan '21), which means I am allergic to gluten. If you can avoid it, please don't send me teas containing these ingredients: oat, barley malt.
I have celiac disease, meaning I am allergic to gluten. Please don't send me teas containing oat or barley malt.
I prefer to receive postcards naked and stamped. But if the swap says to send blank in an envelope, that’s what I signed up for :)
