10 September 2021. Someone outside of Europe has sent me a swap and there is more than 5 euros of postage due. I was asked to pick it up (at a location on the other side of town) and pay the postage. There is no way I can be reimbursed for the cost and inconvenience so I guess they will send it back? Update: It has been returned to the sender.

I'm Robyn I am married and have two children. I work as a caregiver.

Together with @stachel I co-host the euroswappersonly group

I have been on swapbot a little more than a year now. I do my best to send swaps that are unique and special. I care about what I do. Please message me if you have any questions or comments.

Postcards and Stamps

I quite enjoy the postcard swaps. My favorites are:

  • forest animals

  • city or country where you are from/live.

  • funny, quirky

  • moomin

  • I LOVE BIRDS! All kinds but expecially woodpeckers, robins, tits and sparrows.

  • butterflies

  • vintage

  • art

Any new or used postcards or stamps

Christian themed items are ok with me

Favorite Crafts

I have a love for all crafts but I would say the flipbooks,pockets, envies and atc's are my favorite.

I have spent this past summer trying out watercolors. (watercolor doodles also)

wish list

  • Anything Princess Diana / Royal Families of Europe.

  • Ephemera

  • Owls, foxes, woodpeckers, hummingbirds butterflies

  • stickers (no foam stickers please)

  • Stationary/briefpapier I can use/reuse little bits and pieces of paper.

  • tags

  • used postage stamps (expecially from Europe's Royal families.)

  • vintage postcards, stickers , paperscraps. I love more vintage colors and themes. Please no reward or disney stickers.

  • tea (please no rooibos or licorice)

  • small homemade envelopes

  • anything forest themed, nature, flowers or butterflies.

  • washi tape (please no pink) No Disney.

I love dark colors. Rich reds, purple, browns, caramel. I often combine these colors with oker dark yellows, gold. to warm these colors more.

  • postcards new or used

  • bookpages (in different languages)

  • moomin


I have a wide variety of hobbies but they seem to be stationed into different times of the year. I paint and read more if the weather is colder. I would rather be outside if the sun is shining. I love to take my dog on walks. I enjoy shopping in the village and going to the library.

Thank you for reading my profile. ♥

I'm happy you received and like what I sent you! :) I hope you are able to make something out of them. I just got home from a week in Oslo and had received your package with the tea. Omg, you really spoiled me!! So many teas!! Thank you so so much, I will think of you every time I drink tea this autumn! I look forward to try the ones that I haven't, and the ones that I already know I like! Thank you again, you are far too kind! I hope you have a really nice weekend!

Hello Robyn, I'm so glad my mail arrived to you! ^.^ - Yeah, I had to send it a second time and sometimes the German postal workers can be jerks. In this yellow sticker they told me, that it weights more than 50 gr, so 1,70 € wouldn't be enough and at the same time, that it's ~ 1 cm each side too small for an envelope under 50 gr to be send international. It's impossible to meet these two criteria at the same time! ^^° So I carefully replaced the yellow sticker to the back (they always put it over the sender's address), put everything in a bigger envelope, wrote the true weight on it, because I was still truculent and sended it a second time, in hope it will work this way... Have a great day! :-) Yors, Maxi
