About Me

Hello there,

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.

Happy swapping!

Favorite Books

I love good storys, Discworld Books, Stephen King, romantic and funny Books, Thriller, Crime, Fantasy and illustrated books. Also a big Dr. Seuss Fan.


I like:
🎈 Foxes
🎈 Animals (really any)
🎈 Flowers
🎈 Landscapes
🎈 Traditional
🎈 Halloween (not just in spooktober)
🎈 Christmas
🎈 Lighthouses
🎈 Space
🎈 Funny PC's
🎈 Fairytales
🎈 Mystical
🎈 The ones that you can color yourself (if you color them)
🎈 Hot air balloons
🎈 Vintage
🎈 Promotional signs
🎈 Teddies
🎈 Lights
🎈 Umbrellas
🎈 Doors
🎈 Cities
🎈 Flags
🎈 Maps
🎈 spooky/weird/macabre
🎈 Pin ups
🎈 Anime
🎈 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.

ESO Snack Swap

I don't have any allergies or dislikes and i'm looking forward to new things to try (even not new things, i just like to see what other ppl like and it's all about the thoughts anyways)


I like:

⭐ Foxes, i really love Foxes :-)
⭐ autumn
⭐ 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
⭐ books
⭐ wellness
⭐ hot drinks like hot chocolate and cappuccino
⭐ recipes and cooking/baking
⭐ handcrafts
⭐ the Middle Ages
⭐ any kind of markets
⭐ Asia, Africa, Orient
⭐ Documentaries about Food and Countries
⭐ Music
⭐ Movies
⭐ Retro and Vintage
⭐ Felix the Cat
⭐ Steampunk
⭐ Gothic
⭐ Fairytales
⭐ Card- and Boardgames
⭐ Lights
⭐ Mail
⭐ Stationary
⭐ Flags


❌ 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.

Stationary and crafts

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.

Favorite Movies/Music

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.

Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful washi tapes! I love them all! Have a wonderful day! Hugs, Diane
Comment: Thank you, I’ve heard of love padlock bridges. It must be interesting to look at all the different locks and wonder if the love lasted.
nigatsubebe rated for Washi Sample Swap #3 on Jul 8, 2022
Comment: Thank you so much! Your letter actually arrived a little over a week ago, I think. I've been consumed with 'daily stuff' and haven't responded to anyone. I'm so sorry! Thank you for sending extra washi. I LOVE seeing things I can't get in the US (or from Chinese shops like BuJoLove) easily. If there's anything I can send from the US, please message me! (Although, I agree, out post service is breaking down as well... and it isn't really worth it to join low-value swaps, esp intl swaps, to pay 3 BOXES of bagged tea value to mail 2 individual teabags. <3)

Comment: Liebe Foxy, zu schade, dass ich dir nur ein Herz geben kann, denn du hättest eine ganze Reihe davon verdient! Heute habe ich deinen Swap bekommen und tanze seitdem regelrecht um meinen Schreibtisch herum, immer wieder diese herrlichen Köstlichkeiten in Augenschein nehmend, die du rausgesucht hast. Das ist einfach nur genial! Köstlich! Vielen, vielen Dank für den Swap! ^.^ (Ich stand, wie du, im Dilemma einen deutschen Swappartner abbekommen zu haben und deckte mich dafür im Asiamarkt ein. XD) - Tatsächlich kenne ich aber bei dir auch nur einen Bruchteil und weiß kaum, was ich zuerst probieren soll und dann die kleine Schatztruhe und das Notizbuch... das ist genau meins! ^.^ Ich liebe Truhen und bunkere Bücher für Tagebuch und Reisetagebuch, wie ein Drache seinen Schatz. Und das Motiv ist soo schön. - Tausend Dank für den tollen Swap und hab' einen wunderschönen Tag. Meinen hast du mir auf jeden Fall versüßt. :-) Liebe Grüße, Maxi PS: Füchse sind toll!
Response: Hi Maxi, vielen Dank für die tolle Bewertung! Schön, dass ich dir eine Freude machen konnte und auch, dass ich Dinge finden konnte, die du noch nicht kanntest. <3 Hab auch einen tollen Tag und hoffentlich bis zum nächsten Mal! P.S. Ich hoffe du hast dir schon was schmecken lassen.
