About Me

NOTE: I know from my postcrossing experience that mail can get lost on it's way. So, when you don't receive a swap from me, please contact me and I will resend!!!

I work in engineering and marketing for a small company and live in a beautiful town with many historical buildings. For over ten years my nickname is "Pocci", as my friends once stated I look like Pocahontas. In my free time I love to read, meet my friends, go to the movies and do something creative. I would love to learn sewing, but I never found the time to take a course and have no sewing machine to teach myself.

I'm addicted to drinking tea (I like it much better than coffee) and to postcrossing. I love to receive snail mail! I'm always happy to find something different from ads or bills in my mailbox.

I love to travel to other countries, but while studying I don't have much time to do so. But I got a whole list inside my head, where I want to go in the future. I also like to learn about other cultures and history of other countries. I also like to cook and bake. Besides my favorites, I always love to try new recipes.

I also like to learn new languages. So far I speak English and some Spanish (but that needs still a lot of practice), besides German, which is my mother tongue. I also want to learn Japanese and Turkish some day, but at the moment I'm too busy to teach myself.

Favorite Books

Stephanie Plum novels, Twilight series, Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice, Jane Austen books, Harry Potter, Sea of Poppies, The Time travelers wife

Favorite Crafts

I love to paint, it doesn't matter if I use felt-pens or paint on canvas. But I mostly paint, when I have enough time. I also like to draw little pictures.

I like working with beads, but it comes and goes. Sometimes I go crazy and do a lot of stuff and sometimes I don't look at them for month.

Early this year I started scrapbooking. I'm working on an album about my travels. As I always keep little memories like tickets, maps, coins etc. from my travels, scrapbooking is such a great way to have them all together.

Recently I discovered mail art. I got hooked instantly! I love to send snail mail and it's so much fun to spend some time and make it into something personal. But I prefer mail art on letters to mail art on postcards.

Favorite Television

ER, Modern Family, How I met your Mother, Criminal Minds, Glee, The O.C., Big Bang Theory, Cold Case, Crossing Jordan

Favorite Movies

X-Men movies, Pirates of the Carribbean, Remember the Titans, Robin Hood - Prince of Thieves, Pride and Prejudice, The Color Purple, Walk the Line, Once, 10 Things I hate about you, From Hell, Sleepy Hollow, Alice in Wonderland, Dirty Dancing

Favorite Colors & Patterns

I especially like green, red and black, but there are also shades of torquise and medium blue I think look amazing. In general I prefer bright colors to pastel and neon.

When it comes to patterns I love stars, dots, teardrops and floral patterns.

Things I like

  • tea (please nothing with strawberry or lemongrass)
  • matryoshkas
  • cherrys
  • cupcakes & muffins
  • cats of prey
  • books
  • buttons and button badges
  • mangos
  • peppermint
  • snail mail
  • languages
  • sushi
  • nice pens
  • kawaii things
  • cute stationery
  • fairies (especially the flower fairies by Cicely Mary Barker)
  • butterflies
  • berries (except strawberries)
  • pretty bookmarks
  • candies from foreign countries
  • lip balms (all kinds except strawberry)
  • salty snacks like chips (crisps) & pretzels

What definetly would make my day:

  • PocketBac Hand Sanitizer by Bath and Body Works (you can't get those in Germany)
  • Cinnamon TicTac
  • Anything from the SMASH series by K&Company as these are really hard to get here in Germany
  • Poptarts (especially Blueberry or Chocolate flavors)


  • licorice
  • spiders (I get terrible nightmares)
  • kiwi
  • strawberry in anything but their original state
  • I'm lactose intolerant. I can eat chocolate, but please don't send me things that contain lot of cream or butter.
  • please don't send me things to take a bath - I don't really like it and I don't have a bath tub only a shower.

Thank you so much for angeling me for the Water Postcards swap! I received your wonderful postcard today and I really love it, with that house sandwiched between the rocks and the wonderful stamps you put on the back of the flower and Madonna. I appreciate your kindness! :-) Thank you!
