About Me

I'm Salomé and I'm into penpalling and swapping for years. I’m a very sensible and daydreaming girl, suffering from anxiety and high nervoussness. I’m 38 but I feel more like a teenager, I can have difficulties to control my emotions, I can feel sad or excited for little things and I have a rich inner world ! My main passions are craft and being outside in nature when the weather is good enough and nature beautiful (Spring, Summer). I love art journalling, scrapbooking or making cards, ATC anything as long as I can use ink sprays, inks, pigment powders (brushos, magicals by lindy's stamp gang), stamps and stencils. I also like writing diaries or journal photos, making photo albums of my summer adventures, penpalling, swapping, making penpal flipbooks.

I live in a lovely little town in the country, in a house with a nice garden with my boyfriend. We have 2 cats : Pichu and Dana, a tamed cockatiel bird : Enya, a angora hamsters Leonardo and 8 chickens.

I like/don't like

It’s almost Halloween time. Although I hate Autumn, I love Halloween and it helps me to find some fun in a dark and sad season. I love halloween swaps and always look for some more little things as it can be hard to find something in France. Here are my halloween like list : postcards (I prefer more adult style, not too childish ones) washi tapes, 3D or flat embellishments, die cuts and ephemera, scrapbooking papers, magnets and keychains, my favorite halloween combo of colors is orange and black. I prefer more adult designs (like Tim Holtz for example). My Halloween dislike list : any stickers, childish designs, green, skeletons and skulls : I hate them, please be careful to not send something with them, ribbons, napkins.

I’m in love with mini printer or polaroid photos and I’d be happy to receive some, but also normal size photos. It’s very exciting for me to receive photos from somebody at the other side of the world and have a little sight on their lives ! If you don’t find anything I like to send me, send me some photos of you, your pets and your life, it will make me happy !

I like beautiful embellishments flat or 3D, tags, paper sheets, paper/tissue flowers, enamel dots (in my favorite colors…), die cuts (including those made by yourself with your cutting machine), washi tapes. Themes I like : nature (flowers, plants, animals, instects), KAWAI, girly, fantastic, mystical creatures (fairies etc…), pets (especially cats, hamsters but also rabbits and guinea pigs). My general taste for craft supplies is for bright colors, my favorite colors are pink and lime green. Then comes light blue, purple, yellow.

Touristy brochures and leaflet, touristy postcards : cities and landscapes. No museums or pieces of art, souvenirs from your country or a country you visited (keychains, magnets, pens etc...). I especially like those with a photo from the country.

Very big dislikes

TYPED LETTERS.

NO TEA, NO COFFEE, NO FOOD!!!

Colors I hate: black, red,orange, all dark and neutral shades of colors. Please, don’t send me those colors as I don't use them and don't like them.

No sticky notes, small note papers, memo pad sheets.

Simple flat stickers, even as a gift, I don’t want them, I have too many.

Themes I'm not interested in and don’t want: vintage, baby, children, too childish images, vehicles, food, wedding, hello kitty.

Nothing religious.

PLEASE, BE CAREFUL AND RESPECT MY DISLIKE LIST, I REGULARLY RECEIVE THINGS I DON’T LIKE AND IT’S FRUSTRATING !

Comment: I very much like talkative letters with some truly personal writing which this was. I found the blue/aqua ink difficult and the writing so tiny I wished for a typed message instead.
Response: I'm glad you loved my talkative letter! You're right about the blue pen, it's too light and I hesitated using it. But my writing is the way it is, it's hard to control a writing! :)

Comment: Thank you for the lovely photographs & postcards, such majestic & beautiful castles. I live just a few miles from Warwick Castle (I actually drove past it this morning). I've only been to Paris (three times) and a few years ago I spent a week in the south of France (staying with a friend in Antibes, but also visiting Marseille, Nice, Monaco & I did love the beaches and villages near the mountains. I really miss travelling! Thanks again for the photographs.
Response: I'm happy you loved my photos and postcards! It's always a pleasure to swap the beauty of my country!

Hello, it's me again. I just read your profile more carefully and see that you would like deli and freezer paper. Let me know what else you would like from the USA. Denise
