About Me

I HAVE BOTH A GERMAN ADDRESS AND US ADDRESS! I use the German address as the primary for swapping because things arrive very quickly, and my U.S. address is much slower. This is true even if the mail is coming from the US. If you'd like to use my U.S. address, just PM me for it, but know that it may be a bit before I can rate you. Packages arrive quickly, but flat mail is slow.

Hi, I'm Kelly. I'm an American living in Germany and I homeschool my 3 kids, who are 14, 10, and 8. We use a mix of Montessori with some Charlotte Mason. We like hands on learning materials and lot of outdoor time- tree climbing, beachcombing, hiking, kayaking, etc.

I spend my free time creating in many different media. I am always in a middle of several projects and already thinking about the next one.

I am also learning Japanese and German.

Favorite Books

Harry Potter series, Outlander series, Jane Austin, Roller Girl (Tween graphic novel that everyone should read!) historical fiction in general, the manga series Fruits Basket

Favorite Television

Friends, X-Files, Gilmore Girls, Stranger Things, The Queen's Gambit, Call the Midwife, Firefly, Star Trek :TNG

Favorite Crafts

nature journaling woodworking, glass beadmaking, watercolor painting, bookbinding, photography, Dotee dolls (does anyone still make these??), hand-carved stamps, bookbinding, needle felting, sewing, Postcrossing,

Likes

I also like...nature and the outdoors, forest animals, chocolate, postcards, playing cards with fun backs (single or decks), glass beads, lip balm, bookbinding supplies, handmade books, postcards, stickers, wood toys, fabric, polymer clay charms,

I like things related to water (oceans, ponds, boats, frogs, etc), food (especially tacos, cookies, chocolate, or Kawaii doodles of food), pregnancy/childbirth/goddess related things, Girl Scout stuff...

My favorite animals are rabbits, cats, chickens, owls, elephants, foxes, and frogs.

I also enjoy receiving things for my kids. They like Kawaii stationary and stickers, postcards from around the world, animal related things (especially hamsters and cats), mushroom related things, and miniature things (like dollhouse-sized trinkets).

Dislikes

Disney, dogs, coffee, artificial sweeteners, politics, generic/inspirational quotes, religious things. Quotes are completely wasted on me. I don't even read my teabags :) I cannot receive coffee due to postal regulations. It will get returned to sender.

Postcards

I much prefer postcards over note cards. I love postcards with long messages and prefer that they be send naked (no envelope), because I love a good postmark and unique stamps. I'm not a fan of quotes. See my likes above for ideas :)

Tea

My favorite teas are green teas with fruit. I'll take any teas though, as between the 5 members of my family, someone will like just about anything.

Playing cards!

We have a few Frankendecks in the works. My daughter is collecting playing cards with pictures of birds. She only needs a 2 of diamonds, though would appreciate any birds because some she has are doubles. We just started some new Frankendecks: boats, cats, flags, food, and trains! My floral themed deck and Bicycle deck are now complete! :)

Comment: These are great cards, thank you so much, and I really like the bright colors on the US Army Recreation Centers cards. Aren't flea markets fun?! One of my very favorite places to look for playing cards and postcards. That's really sweet that the guy gives your kids discounts. You are the second person I know who just came back from Prague. Thanks for sharing about the clock tower. That's pretty incredible.

Hi Kelly - Received my postcard from the Send My Postcard Back swap. Glad you enjoyed my mermaid story. I think your hurricane preparation story tops mine! Such an enjoyable swap- thanks for participating in it with me.

I got my cat toys today! And my kitties must really love them! I put them on the table (still in the baggy), went out for a bit, and when I got back. . . They were gone! Took me a long time to find them again!

Thank you!
