About Me

Hello everyone! I'm InΓͺs, I'm 30, I'm from Portugal and I'm a photographer. I Love to travel and see the world. My favorite place so far is Alaska - I love to be in nature and Alaska is a paradise on Earth! I also love to read. My favorite book is "Walden" by H.D. Thoreau but I also like Oscar Wilde, Milan Kundera, Haruki Murakami, Patti Smith, Jostein Gaarder, Keri Smith, Afonso Cruz and others. My favorite movie is "Into the wild" but I also like "Remember me", "Mamma Mia!", "Dead Poets Society", "Good Will Hunting", "Backlight", etc. My favorite TV shows are "Friends", "Anne with an E", "La casa de Papel", "Gilmore girls", "New girl", among others. I always loved everything related with writing: letters, books, postcards, stamps, everything so I'm really exciting with swap bot ☺️

I'm also a member of Postcrossing since 2011.

About International Mail

From 1 July there are new taxes and compulsory customs for purchases outside Europe. Please, if you send me a package from abroad, don't write the price of the items on the envelope, otherwise I will have to pay a percentage, because it looks like purchases. Unfortunately this has happened to me more than once with a package from UK and USA, and I paid... Next time I will not accept the envelope, I'm sorry.

JJJ group swaps

Stuff I like and stuff I use a lot in my journals:

tickets, bird/bee/bug pics/illustrations, old photos, pastel colour washi tape, vintage papers, tea or coffee dye paper, Tim Holtz material, mushrooms, handmade papers, wax seals, handmade items from different people, embelishments, vintage ephemera, transparent plant stickers, etc.

Yay! Your letter just arrived! And no, the first one never showed up. So sorry it got lost. I'll get back to you soon! Sending lots of love in the meantime.

Risna on Jan 12, 2022:

Thank you so much for the late Christmas present... it's even more special because it arrived a bit late. And this way it got way more attention! ;-) Love the notebook and can't wait to read the Love Letters of Great Men. Thank you so much for being so kind to me! Sending love!

Risna on Dec 26, 2021:

Feliz Natal! Just wanted to thank you again for making my days on December 21 to 24 with the Advent Calendar packages! Especially love the wooden sign and the vintage labels! Sending love your way! R.
