Hello! I'm Sabine - a mother of two lively and bubbly boys ('08 & '14)) and you can find toy cars, lego parts and train tracks on my home floors. I'm a practical nurse working in homecare taking care of the elderly. I work in shifts and there are days I'd like to crash on the couch when I get home (I do occasional napping) :) Luckily my workplace is within 10minute walking distance and when weather allows, I hop on my bike :)
I enjoy multiple things like exploring flea markets (you can find the strangest of things!), good movies, goodnatured kids (own! They just fight over the smallest of things sometimes! Haha), a good book that swipes you away and with what you realize at 2.30am that you just can't stop reading!
Travelling, seeing new places and meeting people - if only I could do that always! But haven't found the moneytree yet. We do try to travel abroad once a year though :)
I just love, love, love snailmailing and all that comes with it! You can often see me in postcard-swaps due to my 'obsession' over them :) I'm not all that crafty even though I'd love to. Did my share with decos once but seeing all the possibilities these days, I find myself googling what is what.. I love lettering and calligraphic styles. Mail art is something I find myself looking up on Pinterest. I love my mail with real stamps - the more the merrier
I'm reading too little these days, I just can't find enough time but the last book i read was Harry Potter and the cursed child, Lord of the Rings is amazing and then i enjoy Robin Cook's books and I'm a big fan of Torey Hayden's books as well.
Romance, comedy and action - separately or all together. Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts - just to name two actors whose movies I truly enjoy. There are only a few movies I can say I could watch over and over again.. Pretty Woman definitely is one. Die Hard movies are my favorite "Christmas" movies!
I get hooked over tv shows and I can easily snitch an hour from my sleep to watch an episode of whatever I am looking at the time. I thought I'd never get Netflix.. I was wrong, so wrong :)
When i have time, i make my own Christmas cards. I often decorate my envelopes/postcards. I did buy a punch board for making my own envelopes and I love to make address labels. Stickers, washi, die cuts, rubberstamps, colors, papers.. bring it on baby!
I'm a BIG fan of postcards!
I always check everyone's profiles for likes/preferences (even though it would be sender's choice!). I always try to find the right card among that, if it just is possible. I appreciate if you read mine, I basically have just a few no-no's and a huuuuge list of likes. I never send unwanted leftovers to anyone, even if it'd be Sender's choice - I'm sure you wouldn't appreciate getting them either, right? :)
Which kind do I like then? Different kinds actually, depends on the swap! As long as you have put effort in it eg with stamps, decorations, or just a lovely message. Send mine written and stamped unless the swap says otherwise :). Here goes a few ideas..
Mapcards, of your surroundings/country/ USstates
Scenery. Cards of your surroundings/country are always fascinating, as that way I get a glance at your life.
PLEASE I prefer you wouldn't send touristic cards BLANK (I really prefer them Only written & stamped and preferably Only from origin/region. Thank You!
Lighthouses / bridges / castles / windmills / gardens
Rain, fog, wind, thunder, natural phenomenons of your area
Folklore tales& stories, urban legends, ghost stories
Artistic (fairytales, stories, modern, illustrated)
Colorful, shaped, untypical, zany
Black & white
GF (Greetings from..) - Official or unofficial, as far as it comes from the origin!
Holiday related; Christmas cards in December, Easter cards around Easter etc, Birthday cards welcome too.
All in all, I'm happy with all - every single card makes me happy, just surprise me! But keep the erotic/nudistic or religious cards for someone who collects them. Selfmade cards ok if made well and with thought.
Other things that I like
I don't really care for Disney (or such), manga, reward/teacher/Action hero/puffy stickers or confetti/Glitter. Torn or bent postcards or cigarrette smell in goods. I'm not the greatest fan of basic "box-shaped" stickers (I prefer shaped for some reason) but surely I act like an adult if I get some ;).
