About Me

2017 was not my year.

  • My grandma dropped down the stairs on Dec 21, 2016 and was in hospital for 4 months due to several brain bleedings. She is now dependent on care and is in a nursing home. Guess she doesn't really know what is going on around.
  • My father was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in April 2017 and is getting a stem cell transplantation on November 9, 2017.
  • Finally in April 2017 my car was stolen. At least the insurance paid for it, but it was really annoying.

Therefore I cut down on swapping and hosting swaps during 2017.
As I now started studying for my masters degree in addition to my full-time jub, I will cut down swapping even more in 2018. I guess I will only join some postcard swaps that are not time intensive and will only host a few swaps myself.


My favourite colours: green, light blue, bright yellow.

  • used postage stamps from Japan
  • coloured envelopes
  • lettersets
  • stickers
  • gel pens
  • candles
  • tealights
  • anything from Leonardo


  • animals, esp. Mongolian gerbils, Dzhungarian dwarf hamsters, big cats (only real pictures of real animals)
  • cityview postcards esp. singleview postcards
  • no Christmas or Easter cards (except it's a special swap for these)
  • no religious cards
  • no handmade cards
  • no ad cards



  • herbal tea
  • fruit tea
  • rooibos tea
  • esp. looking for tea with vanilla, caramel, chocolate, grapefruit or passionfruit flavour

Please don't send any tea as extra as I have too many at the moment. Except you have one of the following as I want more of them:

  • English Tea Shop: Chocolate Super Berry Burst
  • Stash: Mango Passionfruit


  • plain and flavoured green tea
  • plain and flavoured black tea
  • plain and flavoured white tea
  • chai, peppermint, ginger, chili, pepper, lemon


Please no sweets at the moment except:

Wow wow wow wow wow!!!
Pulled into my driveway right after the mail man was walking away, and I could see my mailbox had a package (not just an envelope!!) I never imagined a destash stamp RAK could be so generous!! Enormous number of quality stamps! And if that wasn't cool enough, an assortment of teas too!! I should be sleeping, but I couldn't help but unload this gem!!! So many stamps I'm super excited about! From space, to flowers, equipment, rocks and minerals, trucks, rainbows, cats, flags, and so much more!! I'm surrounded by this awesome RAK, and it'll take some time to sort through. I am so greatfull to have been sent a package from you. Thank-you for your kindness, may it be returned to you in the same beautiful way it has been given.


SweetBizar on Jun 29, 2017:

What a surprise in my mailbox! Thanks for the beautiful collection of postcards, teas and hot chocolate. Really appreciate it! xxx

SweetBizar on Jun 19, 2017:

Ooooh, glad you received it! No problem :) I just did my best to sort out all the coins and it would be a pitty if they got lost in the mail :) Wishing you a summer without sorrow! xx

Hier auch noch mal ein gesondertes Dankeschön für die wunderschönen Würfel, die du für die TLOES Wunschliste mitgeschickt hast. Sie passen perfekt in meine Sammlung und werden bei der nächsten Rollenspiel-Runde auch ganz sicher genutzt!

phillaine on Jun 7, 2017:

Hello Andrea :)
Thank you for the delightful things you sent me for my April/May wishlist in TLOES group. I appreciate the time and care you put into finding such a lovely variety of stickers and seals in groups of 4 and 8 for my sticker mandala project. I've never made one before, either! I only recently heard about them from a swap-bot friend. Here's a picture of one:

I also look forward to using the great quality colorful envelopes you sent in my mail art. Thanks again for thinking of me! ♥

Sallyo on Jun 5, 2017:

WOW & THANK YOU! for the generous RAK you sent me of the MANY, MANY, MANY postage stamps. I know what I'll be doing tmrw instead of folding laundry😜

kizmet on Jun 3, 2017:

Thanks so much for the huge stamps envelopes and the teas! I spent all yesterday sorting them out and I'm far from being done..it truly feels like Christmas =) Thanks so much for your kindness and please if you will ever want something from Italy just let me know and I'll gladly send it to you! Have a great week end
