Favorite Crafts

I am in love to experiment with colors and different styles. My favorites are botanical, galaxies, animals and vintage.

No matter if simple letters to penpals or paper folder for bigger swaps. It is a pleasure to experiment and create something incredible out of scraps. It makes me really happy.

Most of the time, if I create a happy mail I try to stick to a certain color scheme or theme. It is a bit of problem of mine. I guess my aesthetic eye couldn't bare it otherwise πŸ˜… I love to receive what you send me, but if you need a bit of advice:

Washi tape, sticker flakes or sheets, paper scraps, magazine cut outs for collages, used stamps. I guess only the sky is the limit.

About Me

Hi, I am Julia from Austria, and currently 27 years old. The last ten years I have been into penpalling (also writing letters and sending off postcards) and creating in general. And sometimes I find a new site or community to find new friends around the world. I found swap bot through Instagram, and fell in love almost instantly. Recently I got myself also a postcrossing account to send off more postcards into the world. I am trying to make over letters and swaps friends, because in real life I am a very shy introvert. It makes it way easier to talk about myself and connect with people through letters. Random fact about me: I am also having a cat addiction 😊🐈 but I do love also other animals like tigers, owls, foxes, etc.

Thank god I don't have food allergies, so, my food love stands nothing in the way. Unfortunately, to my weight sometimes πŸ˜… But I guess life is too short to limit myself all the time.I also have to say I prefere coffee or hot cocoa over tea. I guess I tried to many teas which were not my taste, and know I barely drink it - especially herbal tea. But I do have to admit I get intrigued by rather unconventional tea tastes like cookies and cream or winter editions.

Favorite Books

Oh, I can't really say I have a favorite book. I do love Thrillers, Horror and Mystery books especially with a few good plot twists, but can also find joy in Science Fiction, Dystopian and Fanatsy books. So, I am sure a brighter personality than my book favorites πŸ˜…

I also found myself discovering the site bookcrossing. So I can connect with other book lovers and sending some of my loved books to other people. Please, if you have ever a recommendation about a book, tell me about it! I love to talk about books.

Comment: What wonderful mail art you've sent. I received it during a busy day at work (at home :) but waited until the evening to open so I could enjoy it all the more. And I surely did! I liked your stamp decorations on the envelope - so much of interest, especially the current Austrian hat stamps. Your note was a delight to read, and the coordinated washi stationery was perfect. You've also picked out a very nice and generous assortment of stamps to send. Many thanks for a Great Mail Day.

Comment: Thank you for the summery mail art! I too don't like snow and cold but this year we could use the rain. We have a drought and flowers in my garden fade after a day or two.

image Hello Julia, This is a great day! I'm going to be glad in it! The sun may come out, or not, Makes me no never mind. My rocking chair on my porch I will find. The birds will chirp their hello to me front across the neighborhood. That first sip of my coffe...aaah! Life is good & I am thankful for it. I hear a dog barking from across the way. I will dream of hearing the ocean waves crash to shore when I close my eyes. Then the duties of the day come crashing in. A lawn mower starts up and the illusion slips away. What's for supper tonight? Do I have appointments? Do I need a pedi? Do my windows really need to be cleaned? It was good while it lasted, but what really matters is my rocker is sitting there waiting for me any time I have a minute free. Stop to take a minute today, go to your quiet place, breathe in, breathe out, just be🌻
