About Me

I'm Salomé and I'm into penpalling and swapping for years. I’m a very sensible and daydreaming girl, suffering from anxiety and high nervoussness. I’m 37 but I feel more like a teenager, I can have difficulties to control my emotions, I can feel sad or excited for little things and I have a rich inner world ! My main passions are craft and being outside in nature when the weather is good enough and nature beautiful (Spring, Summer). I love art journalling, scrapbooking or making cards, ATC anything as long as I can use ink sprays, inks, pigment powders (brushos, magicals by lindy's stamp gang), stamps and stencils. I also like writing diaries or journal photos, making photo albums of my summer adventures, penpalling, swapping, making penpal flipbooks.

I live in a lovely little town in the country, in a house with a nice garden with my boyfriend. We have 2 cats : Pichu and Dana, a tamed cockatiel bird : Enya, a angora hamsters Leonardo and 8 chickens.

I like/don't like

More than everything, I love reading handwritten letters and there’s nothing I hate more than little notes, they make me feel people are here to get something only, not to meet new people and give. Please, wether you joined a penpal swap or not, please write me something more than just « hello, here is my swap » !! Tell me about you and anything else you want ! And I don’t like typed letters, they're really dissapointing to me.

I’m in love with mini printer or polaroid photos and I’d be happy to receive some, but also normal size photos. It’s very exciting for me to receive photos from somebody at the other side of the world and have a little sight on their lives ! If you don’t find anything I like to send me, send me some photos of you, your pets and your life, it will make me happy !

My general taste for craft supplies is for bright colors, motives or animals/characters /flowers. Avoid sending me dark, neutral colors and plain things with no or a few motives/images.

My favorite colors are pink and lime green. Then comes light blue, purple, yellow

Themes I like : nature (flowers, plants, animals, instects), KAWAI, girly, fantastic, mystical creatures (fairies etc…), pets (especially cats, hamsters but also rabbits and guinea pigs).

I like beautiful embellishments flat or 3D, tags, paper sheets, paper/tissue flowers, enamel dots (in my favorite colors…), die cuts (including those made by yourself with your cutting machine).

Washi tapes : I'm looking for yellow washi tapes, anything as long as it's yellow. I like washis with characters/animals/flowers on them.

Pens : I like pens of all kind from the fancy ones to the simple ones from the supermarkets. I like pink and turquoise ink but hate black ink. Please be careful to not send me black ink, I won’t use those pens.

Clear stamps and stencils

Touristy brochures and leaflets.

Touristy postcards : cities and landscapes. No museums or pieces of art.

Souvenirs from your country or a country you visited (keychains, magnets, pens etc...). I especially like those with a photo from the country, or the flag.

Very big dislikes

Colors I hate: black, red,orange, all dark and neutral shades of colors. Please, don’t send me those colors as I don't use them and don't like them.

Simple flat stickers, even as a gift, I don’t want them, I have too many.

Drinks and food

Themes I'm not interested in and don’t want: vintage, baby, children, too childish images, vehicles, food, wedding, hello kitty.

Nothing religious.

Comment: As usually you send a 5 heart swap. Enjoyed the letter, little die cuts. You have so many cool cuts especially with words. The pictures were great to and yes the bee one was awesome. So many colors in the flowers too. Stationary is beautiful. I should try to water color and print paper up! It just makes me want to try it.

Comment: Thank you for the letter and photos! I love the one with the bee too. Working in your garden sounds like a wonderful pass time during quarantine. I loved the pic of you and one of your hens. My girls are pretty feisty too so they don't like to be pet or held, except one which i raised from when she was 2 weeks. She likes to be pet and loves to get her cheek rubbed.
Response: I'm happy you loved my photos, and the one of my chicken! Yours look so lovely! Thanks a lot for your nice comment

Trinket rated for EML: Happy Mail #9 on Feb 21, 2020
Comment: Great communication, we had an issue where we thought it had gone missing but it hadn't, mail on my end was being super slow. Thank you so much for this well thought out piece of mail and for your pacients. You rock
Response: I think all swap botters have to be patient, and communicate in case of problems because most of the time, there's no real problems, only worries because of the postal services! At least that's my experience! I'm happy you loved everything! Maybe we can be private swappers in the future!
Lotusemilia rated for Mail Swap! #1 on Feb 13, 2020
Comment: Thank you so much for resending after the first one got lost in the mail! Such cute things, and the envelope is really pretty too! I especially love the bookmark :) It'd be fun to do a private swap in the spring/summer, just let me know whenever you want to do some!
Response: I'm happy you loved everything and it reached you so quickly! I'll contact you again in spring or summer for a private swap.
Melonkne rated for Instax photo swap! ANYTHING #2 on Feb 8, 2020
Comment: Hi Salome! Thank you for such a touching letter and photos! I forget how much I rambled on my profile and it made me so happy you read through it! As for the year for the photos they have, I wanna say a aged/sepia feel to it. My first thoughts say 90s, but I can be bias cause I'm a 90s kid. But I'd say a warm Sunday afternoon maybe? Also your home is so beautiful! All that green! The panda and lion were so beautiful! I shall put them in my journal! I really want to send a response to your letter, but at the moment I'm getting over a cold and work has been really busy lately. However I will really try to write you back and send it out to you before the end of this month! Stay tuned? Best, Mels.
Response: Sorry, I forgot to reply to your lovely, long comment, I love reading such long comments, thanks a lot! I'm happy my letter and photos pleased you so much! I was offered an Instax 2 days ago and I'm crazy about it, the quality is a lot better than the sprocket! I plan to host some Instax swaps in the coming weeks and months! I'd be happy to swap with you again!

Response: I can't believe you received my swap so quickly, I thought it would take weeks and weeks! I'm really happy you love everything so much, I like pleasing people who have the same interest as me! I'll contact you someday soon to talk about a private swap.

Hello, it's me again. I just read your profile more carefully and see that you would like deli and freezer paper. Let me know what else you would like from the USA. Denise

Hi Salome, I'm your partner for the June Journal page swap. I live in California, USA. Is there any craft items that you want or need that you cannot find in France? Let me know and I can include it in my letter. Denise (midge)
