About Me

NEWS Sept./Oct. 2018: I'm in the middle of moving house. I packed the very important crafting box that I always have with me to craft, write and send swaps, but my mail is forwarded already and takes some time to arrive to the new address. Thanks for your patience in terms of being rated! :)

My name's Kira. My age? Forever 29 ;) I'm from northern Bavaria in Germany. I work as a social worker. I live in a historic palace. I'm a big lover of mountains, forests, all mountaineering activities, orchids, the color pink, butterflies and the universe. Let the sunshine in :D


hiking, mountaineering & rock climbing & bouldering, LARP (live action role-play), Yoga, surfing waves, sewing, genealogy, traveling, reading & writing (poetry/fiction), playing Blues/slide guitar, dancing (Burlesque, Rockabilly Jive, Blues, Charleston), swing music & 50's era / Rockabilly, astronomy, going out with friends, cooking & baking (I'm vegan)

Favorite Crafts

I can't live without my planner and love creating (and buying^^) tons of stuff for it.

Mail art - e.g. lovely envelopes, pocket letters and flip books - make my heart beat faster.

Comment: I received your lovely washi envelope with the cool tapes you chose for each of the letters (watercolor, animal, stars, hearts, & ice cream), along with the extras! :) I know what you mean - even though some of the tapes aren't really true washi, they are still pretty! Did you make the card you sent them in? It was neat too.

What a great package. I put the stocking stuffer in my stocking and plan to send the post cards to my Mother who is in a nursing home. Her parents came from Austria and I know she will love them. Many thanks

Thank you so much for the beautiful envelope of pink! I love everything, and I'm so grateful for the address labels. May I ask where you found the mermaid graphic? I'd love to make some matching stationery! Thank you again, for being such a fab Angel host <3
