Hello :)

Somebody asked if I am a smoker, because of this picture. I am a non-smoker :) But I love these Dick Bruna Illustrations from the 60ies and 70ies :)


All swaps I host are senders choice. All envelopes are prepared, have a date on it and need just to be addressed. This is for the worst case. When I am fresh :) then I do not use this envelopes and make personal ones. I had do learn this the hard way. So please be not upset, when from time to time there is no personal attach to it.

And second: I love to make my envelopes out of magazine pages, catalogues or calendars. This is my happy place. Listening tto Audiobooks and make them. If you do not like these envelopes, then please tell me beforehand, I will use a regular then. This is not about the money. It is about my happy place and my tiny-step-a-day for the environment.

Favorite Crafts

  • MailArt. I love it.

  • Journaling - colourful and playful :), full of childrensbooks-illustrations, postcards and fun quotes on the left side, on the right side I journal what comes to mind :) (so not so much vintage perfection, more "oh, there is another dino-page" haha)

  • Origami

  • handmade stickers

  • And I seem to be the one and lonely person, you can send tiny tiny stickers, notebooks and pencils to :) :) :)

  • Currently: I am looking for grid washitape, thin washitape, stickiistickers and dachshund-things. Folding 1000 papercranes with much needed patterned Origamipaper, 7x7 cm (under 3 inches) preferred, but all sizes are welcome!! Green tea with coconut *

and finally...

Do I have dislikes? Yes, of course I have. Will I list them? No.

I have met wonderful people here at swap-bot. They were carefuI with their swaps and put so much effort in them. I was happy all day long because of their thoughtfulness and kindness, although the swap might not be exactly my taste.

For me swap-bot is about thoughtfulness and inspiration, about humour, kindness and art. I maybe am more into dinosaurs and less into fairies. But if you put a little winged fairy on a dinosaurs' shoulders on your mailart: this fairy would be the most treasured fairy on the planet.

To be honest: there is no chance I would appreciate a swap which is against people (how they look like, whom they love, where they live,..) or animals. But anything put together with respect, care and humour is very much appreciated.

Please send just kidfriendly things. That would be really nice :)

At the moment...

WTA: IFM March20 - not sent yet (India)

CPG rak attack 5.2. G

If you are my swap partner and are a collector of teatags or empty teabags, please let me know. I tuck as many in our swap as I can. or we could do a private swap. I am always open for a swap for other lightweight things like used stamps (preferred) or airmail labels, stickers or your favourite vegan recipe :)

Thanks for having me in your tiny tiny group! I like them tiny, to be honest, and I'm mostly doing forum tags at the moment, but saw your group on Steph's profile and thought I'd try y'all out!
