I tried to keep my Profile as short and neat as i could but i think i failed. :-)
My name is Sylvia, i was born in 1988 and i live close to Munich in Germany. I'm an easygoing person, i love crafting and artsy stuff, animals, trying new things and being with my lovely boyfriend. :-) I'm interested in interior design, especially unusual and cozy styles. I would love to start a postcard collection. Also i really love to receive new recipes to try, especially i find it really nice if there is a story behind it. I love Foxes because they are super interesting and pretty. Not just the Red Fox, also Fennec Foxes, Arctic Foxes and so on. They are just adorable. I also really love hot air balloons. I drew some hot air balloons on a wall in my bedroom, colored them and crafted some flags together with a lightstring (fairylights). So it's super cozy, which i really like a lot. I want to make a blanket fort there. :-D Everything themed with travel and adventures is usually a big hit for me. I love to make dreamcatchers as i find the story really beautiful. I guess i'm more on the nerdy side of life. I enjoy playing computer games (i'm on steam and always up for a nice game), some mangas/animes/comics, figurines, movie merch and things like that. I bought my boyfriend a 3d printer for christmas and we are printing a lot lately. it's super fun to print figurines, earrings, lamps and all kinds of things but especially models my boyfriend created himself. He is very good with all things computer- and technicwise.
As the Universal Post Union decided to make the lives 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, 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.
I don't have any allergies and i would say i'm pretty open minded. In general i like chocolate, winegums/jelly beans/Fruit gums, liquorice as long as it's not too strong or too salty, Crisps/Chips/Crackers ect. I like hot drinks or packages of jelly or custard in interesting flavours, pumpkin spiced sweets, tea, spices, cookies, nuts. So literally everything i guess. :-D
Besides orange flavoured, i really like any tea. From chai to rooibos to green tea, herbal, fruity, Oolong, black and so on. :-) Same for hot chocolate, Coffee or Chai Latte.
If there are food items required in a swap just make sure, that the things you send are sealed/wrapped. I would love to try things that are made in your country/area. Even tho i might not like it, it's always super fun to explore new things and usually there is always someone i can give it to.
⭐ 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
⭐ Organizing supplies
❌ 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.
If you want to send something extra in a swap here are some ideas of things i would appreciate the most:
or just anything you put thoughts into will be much appreciated! :-)
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 before the swap deadline.
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.
