About Me

addy changed from 2015 year to Germany, my Timisoara addy is still valid! if sending very thick envelopes from outside the EU, if possible, please attach a customs declaration label and don't write a value over 25$?! still have to check the value-because otherwise I have to pay custom fees.thank you!

my profile info had been somehow deleted at a point this year, so this is a copy of an old version I will work on again,

Hi! My name is Julie, I'm 31 years old. I´ve been about 13 years old when I started penpalling(and never stopped,just slowed down), and my pals slowly introduced me to more and more swaps. I started with low quality FBs and taped decos (and did also slams and labelbags and such) and now I only do HQ FBs and art-decos (sometimes taped too, I like to help move those on, but I don´t have that much time for them too).

I love art! I´ve studied Fine arts in highschool, from drawing in pencil and charcoal to painting, modeling clay (this not that much though) and having fashion design as a speciality. But because of teachers in my homecountry and other facts, I studied something else at University and Master´s degree.

I love photography, drawing, painting, shopping for art supplies (all sorts), making decos and greeting cards, sometimes jewelery (I am still learning a lot and gathering more and more supplies). I have been in love with sewing for as long as I have been on Earth, but never had enough patience to sew something (clothes) with a ...pattern. I alter and fix stuff mostly, or do it from scratch on..me(clothes). And l love doing other random stuff, like little gift bags/pouches, I did make-up pouches, a stuffed dog for my dog...etc.

I love dancing, animals, lightnings and thunders, stars, music, travelling, horses, dogs,rabbits, hobbies, mail, reading books, shopping (art making and letter supplies, books, sometimes clothes), foreign languages,drinking tea and shopping for tea, tea mugs, candles, scented stuff, licorice everything (except hard candy),pumpkin pie, white hot chocolate,honey,etc. I´m a very open-minded person, and I love trying new things! but I don´t like dangerous stuff...like bungee jumping :P

If you wonder what I'm dancing the most, it is Argentinean tango. I love everything about tango :) I am a dedicated dancer though I have my times of breaks when...you know..life happens!

If you are waiting for a swap from me, please do not look on the flickr page, it might show up in there! I don't always scan my works, but I might have scanned yours, so if you want to keep it a surprise, please don't look!

Favorite Crafts

drawing, painting, sewing stuff, decos, ATCs, FBs, greetingcards, making jewelery (but this more rare now, as I spend more time on exercising / fitness/sports) .

I like/ love :

the color blue :)

If we're in a tea/profile swap- I love trying out new stuff, weird flavours, spicy stuff,pumpkin flavoured teas, seasonal teas (I drink Christmas tea even in summer for example...). Any kind of tea is fine:herbal,green,white,black,fruit,rooibos...

pumpkin flavoured stuff

i love rubberstamps (be them clear or not),

stickers,

I love Hugh Jackman, so anything with/about him will be highly appreciated (just not by my boyfriend) ! :P so yeah, I'm one of his fans.

scrapbooking supplies (from papers to embelishments,etc) - in decorating I love mainly natural/earth tones -yellows,browns,greens, but will enjoy pretty much everything! so no stress

paper flowers,

photos and postcards (especially black and white) and horses,

black fine-tip pens (felt mainly but not only!)

letters!,

Sentimental Circus (fuzzy bunny!)

painting & drawing related things :)

fabrics, patches of fabrics :)

books, bookmarks, stationery, greeting cards,

friends!

manga,anime related stuff

german, japanese, korean (perfecting the first and learning the others)

liquorice/licorice especially natural/soft or anything with this flavor just not hard candy

watermelon, cinnamon, chamomile, mint, fruity stuff, white chocolate, pumpkin,

chai-spiced white hot chocolate, chai latte, any chai anything

and anything with bunnies/rabbits (real or cartoon/drawing) and would love rabbit rubber/clear stamps ! if you have such rubber/clear stamps, I would love to trade!

Dislikes

crappy decos and FBs, chain mail, very very short letters!, leopard print, cats stuff, bottle caps,

kids related stuff for as long as I do not have any...

am allergic to Hyacinthus orientalis (though I doubt you might be sending me something smelling like this specific flower). Luckily am not highly allergic to it, so don't worry! I will survive a clogged nose and possibly other small symptoms.

in tea swaps: please no tea where the main ingredient is lemongrass! thank you!

Favorite Books

OMG! I gotta work on this list. Can't remember if I added one on my deleted profile. But I gotta say, authors mainly for now: Haruki Murakami

Cherise Sinclair (gotta thank a wonderul swap-bot member for this! I am addicted)

Horacio Vazquez-Rial

Charlaine Harris (she got me with the Harper Connelly Series , it is not True Blood the only reason I like her. and I like others too)

Justin Cronin ( if you like his genre, please read him!The Passage Trilogy)

will be adding more

important

If there is a swap that did not reach you,please message me!

If I will be sending late as an exception, I will message you, but otherwise I will always send on time, so I would like to know if there is something that did not reach you.

I will re-send any lost swap, so please send me a message before giving me a bad rating. Thank you!

Also, I always rate! if something is not rated, there must be a serious reason, please contact me! I might be away / on holidays/ not able to reach my postal box but I most surely will keep close to an internet connection....or your swap is lost. be patient anyway, it's ..snailmail...

And, very important, if you're going to be late, let me know. I do not look at the send date when rating (even my postoffice stamps the envelope later than when I put it in the box) - as the mail anyway takes a long time , unless it takes wayyy too much time (like..months?!). I prefer you being late (and I won't rate down) and telling me , than getting a sloppy swap.

p.s.: because I do care about my swaps and the swaps did have a certain time alloted to make them, I also do not usually finish re-making them in record time (like 1-2 days) as I do not want to send something sloppy. please be patient and allow me a bit of time. thank you!

lost

I had a flaked list too, decided to start over.or re-add some other time. But for now, my new, lost-from-Germany list:

Comment: Thank you for the cute card and the delicious tea selection! Seems my knowledge about politics is also not that good, because I also don't know the black tea guy :D I have seen such tea bags quite often, but never tried one, so thanks a lot for this opportunity :) Have a wonderful Christmas time and a happy 2018!

Comment: Thank you for your letter. I really do appriciate you hand writing it ❤ And those stamps! 😍 I have not read this book or watched the series yet. But this does sound like something I would find interesting. Also, thank you for the tea, post card and bookmark!
Response: glad you liked it and hope you like the book! except for my quarterly swaps where i send twice the same letter about several books, i always write my letters, it is more fun and then for some things, I just scan them as back-up in case of loss. i loved the swap and i love sending extras because it is so much fun to find surprises in envelopes. thank you for rating and the heart.have a nice day!

Comment: Thank you for your lovely letter, Andreea/Julie! I could not have a dog where I lived in Seattle, so when I moved in with my parents a few years ago to help take care of my father, I told them that the one condition I had for moving down here was that I had to be able to adopt a dog. So now I have Max, for coming up on four years. :-) I enjoyed your answers to the questions! Especially as we answered differently on almost every one! (Only two were the same, I think: the book versus movie one and the series vs. stand-alone question.) So it was fun to get a different take and learn why you chose as you did. :-) Thank you for sharing!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH for the Envie of Randomness .I loved all the beautiful and interesting and cute thing so you sent me .I hadn't never seen a"magical" towel before :)

reader44ever on Mar 11, 2017:

When I rated you for the "Would you rather..." swap, I forgot to thank you for the Frankfurt postcard you included! I have been to Frankfurt twice. The first time, though, I only saw the international part of the airport (I was on my way to Moscow in September 1995 for a study-abroad year in Irkutsk/Siberia). So when I went to Prague two years later (September 1997), I flew to Frankfurt and took the train to Prague after spending a day exploring. :-)

What I most remember is how there were all these modern buildings (lots of glass windows/skyscrapers) and then all of a sudden, I walked into a square that was surrounded by old buildings. It was really beautiful. (And a Russian tourist took my photo! hehehe).

So thank you for the bookmark-postcard you included with your letter! ❤️
