Okay, so I'm Marchy (nice to meet you).
You're either here because you are swapping with me, or checking whether I am swap-worthy, right? Well, welcome no matter WHY you're here - I'm glad you stopped by :)
I am a Graphic Designer working as an Administrative Assistant. I love my job, and my life is pretty good right now.
Pro-recycling: I like re-using stuff, especially in crafts. I love crafting... just wished I was better at recycling though...
I get an immense joy out of reading your profile, finding a theme I think you'd like and sending you your swap according to that! Mail Art swaps are my FAVOURITES hands down! I sometimes post pictures of what I send (and sometimes what I get) on Instagram as @MarchyMakes Feel free to pop by! You might just see something I sent you on there...
I am a total heart FREAK.
I love hearts, pink hearts, red hearts, embellished hearts, vintage hearts... the list goes on... BUT I have an EXTREME dislike for the CLICHE Valentines red and white theme ESPECIALLY (want to die thinking about it) white bears holding a red heart saying 'i love you'...eeeeeeeeeeekkk!! BIG NO-NO.
Otherwise: hearts hearts hearts hearts :)
So, I have a little one!! who grows SO fast I cannot keep track!
I'm not usually into swapping or collecting for other people in my family, I've seen it on profiles before, and actually kind of get it now - yeah, now that I'm about to do it, hehe.
So I haven't finished the album yet, and am hoping to get into the spirit and just DO IT! I'm also trying REALLY HARD to not make it TOO gender specific (of course in some places) mostly, hence me not even mentioning the gender. I've found grey to work in some instances, but mint green is also proving to be a cute colour for both boys and girls, and so is navy blue.
Basically, I'd love and appreciate for example project life cards or even alphabet stickers to use in the album that just isnt getting done at the moment!
I have a new little bambino, yay, as mentioned, so I'm decluttering like crazy. Now, more than EVER I am PROJECT LIFE AND SIMILAR obsessed so i can just document life effectively! Please please please feel free to send milestone project life or journalling cards, there are SUCH cute ones out there!!
I am experimenting with planners. If you are into Filofaxes and the Happy Planner and midoris, share with me your favourite links and/ sites and tips, I'd appreciate that! I discovered how beautiful GOLD and esp ROSE GOLD items are in these planners!! So excited! Anyway, send those links and tips please!
PS: I've received some vintage, neutral, black&white stuff - and am now OBSESSED!!!
There aren't many things I don't like receiving in swaps, but here are they: * fruit-flavoured tea (tastes like warm cooldrink to me) * used or damaged items (of course)
That's about it for now :)
PS: I kinda hate it when partners alphabeticise their interests... it takes me SO long to get an ideas from that, what they might like. Bad idea in my eyes.
Thanks for visiting my profile! I look forward to swapping with you!
PS: those who tried to help me add pics to my page, thanks, as you see I didn't get it right. But i'm cool for now about it :)
Ciao for now ;) Marchy
