i took a small break from swapping, as the mail service was pretty unreliable unfortunately. :-( I hope it got better now and i'm happy to be back. :-) Tho i prefer private swaps at the moment because that way i can send some bigger swaps with tracking instead of just hoping that my mail arrives.
My name is Sylvia, i was born in 1988 and i live close to Munich in Germany. I love crafting and artsy stuff, animals, trying new things and being with my lovely boyfriend. :-)
I love to swap as i love to find things my swap partner might like and i love to receive happy mail. Some nice letters and postcards in the mailbox make the day so much brighter. :-)
In August i started to work in a department store. We have sooooo many different goods, sometimes it's still overwhelming. When i started i asked my boss to give me the stationary and craft area which he did. :-) That's my happy place there. :-D
As a nice side effect i have access to so many different things for swapping. For example toys, wool, stationary, crafting supplies, clothes and accessories, decoration (oh how i love the halloween stuff), candles, fake plants, napkins, balloons, kitchen stuff, tableware, beauty products and so on. So if you are interested in any of those and we are swapping, just let me know. :-)
As the Universal Post Union decided to make the lifes of private customers very hard, it is not allowed to send any goods in envelopes anymore. It's no Problem for me to receive goods in envelopes but if i would send small items, i would have to pay the price of a small package and in my eyes it's not worth it at all to spend about 5 Euros for a few teabags or so. :-( So i only join swaps with either a higher value or higher weight or when i'm sure that i can send. Very disappointing and frustrating, but it is like it is.
I'm usually up for private swaps (if i'm not in too many already at that time), i can share beauty products, food/sweets, washi tape, postcards, stationary ect. I prefer bigger swaps (besides Postcards) with either 500 grams in total (with packaging) or more so it's worth the postage.
If you don't get my swap within a reasonable time, just message me and i'm sure we can find a solution. :-) I really try to keep track of all the swaps i joined but i would be thankful if you could tell me. I will do the same. I usually don't mind resending, besides more expensive swaps, but those i normally send with tracking.
I love good storys, Discworld Books, Stephen King, romantic and funny Books, Thriller, Crime, Fantasy and illustrated books. Also a big Dr. Seuss Fan.
🎈 Animals (really any)
🎈 Halloween (not just in spooktober)
🎈 Funny PC's
🎈 The ones that you can color yourself (if you color them)
🎈 Hot air balloons
🎈 Promotional signs
🎈 Pin ups
🎈 Touristy Postcards
But any you send will be appreciated. These are just suggestions. If you have ugly/odd/weird/unusual Postcards (not damaged as i can't use them in any way), don't hesitate to send them to me, i would never rate down for those as i have a special place in my heart for unwanted things. :-)
I prefer Postcards whenever possible instead of Greeting Cards and i won't rate down if the swap requires a Greeting Card and you send me a Postcard that fits the Swaps Topic.
As there are some swaps for packages or stuffed envies that i like to join from time to time, i thought i should share some infos about those.
I love tea and other hot drinks. I drink every kind of tea, besides orange flavoured and i love iced tea in the summers. I guess it's really uncommon, but i like licorice, if it's not too strong or too salty and i have a weak spot for hard candy. I have a big bowl with hard candy at the entrance of my flat and i like to take a few when i go out for a longer time. :-) A big hit as well are spices of any kind as i love to cook and bake and try new recipes and creations.
I love to swap sweets and snacks, the best moment is, when i can open the box and see what's inside. It's always like christmas. And on the other hand i love to go shopping and search things that my partner could like, some special and/or fun things.
Besides a few things i will give most of what i get to my boyfriend and family, as i can't have much candy, but that is totally fine with me. It's like a win win win, as i have lots of fun making a package, opening a package and i can also share with my loved ones. There are no allergies or dislikes and there is always someone who will enjoy whatever you send. :-)
For Beauty Products: I use face masks from time to time, i like eye shadow in natural tones like brown or green i like shimmery ones and i use hand cream for dry skin. I have the luxury of a bathtub so i also love things to add to the water or bodywash. I usually don't use face cream but i like body lotion/butter or oil.
In general i would say i'm very easy to please, as there is always someone i can share things that i don't like and i don't mind that at all.
⭐ Foxes, i really love Foxes :-)
⭐ the colors red, orange, gold, brown and light blue
⭐ tea, i like any kind but orange (literally not my cup of tea. :-))
⭐ nature, animals, flowers, cities, landscapes
⭐ hot drinks like hot chocolate and cappuccino
⭐ recipes and cooking/baking
⭐ the Middle Ages
⭐ any kind of markets
⭐ Asia, Africa, Orient
⭐ Documentaries about Food and Countries
⭐ Retro and Vintage
⭐ Felix the Cat
⭐ Card- and Boardgames
❌ Orange flavoured Tea
❌ the Color Pink
❌ overly religious themed things
❌ too childish designs (tho i like cute things) i mean things/designs from childrens series like Caillou, Paw Patrol ect.
Where i live there are some shops which have super nice design papers, cardstocks, washi tapes and so on. I recently got interested in papercrafts but i just started, so i don't have many things to use and i'm not really good at it yet. If you have any favourite papercrafts, i would love to hear about them as well as some hints, tricks and hacks that you can share. :-) I love different kinds of papers, stickers - but i don't have any use for children or reward stickers. I like washi tape, embellishments or really anything i could use to craft with.
Giving a heart is a very individual decision. I simply want to notice, that someone has read my profile and put some thoughts in the swap. Not everyone is good with drawing/decorating envelopes or boxes and also not everyone can send extras so for me that is not a criterion.
Please communicate! I'm a chill person and i hate unnecessary drama. If you are late on sending i won't rate you down as long as you let me know within a reasonable time.
I am a big movie and music fan, i like to watch most genres but i'm not that keen about sci-fi movies, i absolutely don't like gore and disaster movies. Typically i love movies with a good story, Pixar, Disney, Dreamworks, Thriller, Comedies and romantic movies where i can just zone out and don't have to think a lot.
I like Blues, Soul, Swing/Electro Swing, Rock, Ska, Reggae, some Pop, some Classic, some Hip Hop especially 90's, 80's music, Motown, some Metal and i like Folk, especially Irish Folk. I don't like german Rapmusic and Schlager.
