❗️ Update: Been having mail problems this past weeks, my swaps may arrive a bit more late specially to international. Please contact me if you are my partner, I will send multiples when needed.
❗️ About my 3: The first time I sent it got lost in the mail system. Got rated a 1 for not receiving. Then I send the second time, all criteria of the swap met and the partner enjoyed the items, but just rated a 3. I don't think it's a fair 3 because I did all I could to get the swap done. Troubles with mail happen and are out of our control.
🌼 Hi everyone :) 🌼
My name is Lúcia and I live in Portugal. I have some penpals and also enjoy sharing crafts and paper goodies on Swap-Bot.
I also love crochet, embroidery and cross stitch. Sometimes I try to add cross stitch to my paper crafts, I think it is so cute.
The main reason I'm joining Swap-Bot is to have fun creating while having the opportunity to really brighten someone's day. And also to test myself out of the box with like minded crafty people.
Thank you for reading :D and I wish you a wonderful day 🌞
📋 General Warnings:
If you feel like the package was damaged and maybe something is missing contact me. I will send replacements if needed.
I only join Swaps that I am 100% sure I can manage and pour my heart and creativity into them. So my number of swaps may grow slowly but surely :)
English is not my mother language (Portuguese is :D) so if I misspell something please do tell, that's the best way I learn :) Also feel free to express yourself in English, Portuguese, French and Spanish. I might still respond in English but I understand those clearly when I'm reading (writing I don't have much practice haha just English and Portuguese).
🎀 RAK: If we swapped and you want to use my address to make a RAK I'm totally fine with it :) and I will return the kindness.
📨 Private Swaps: I'm open to them just contact me.
Paper clips with different shapes! So fun!
Time to Mail arrive: This is an estimation based on my experience with penpals and swaps here on site.
To Europe: 7 to 10 days
To USA: Between 2 to 3 weeks
To Canada: Between 3 to 4 weeks
To Asian Countries: Between 3 weeks and a month
I will only rate after I saw and read everything with attention and care, so if it takes a minute it's just because of that.
For rating me please consider that I'm always open to talk, specially (has I mentioned above) if you feel like something was damaged or got open and something might not arrived safely. This things happen and it's how we deal with them that matters :)
I will always read your full profile before swapping, so please have it nice and full of your beloved likes!

And I listen to the podcast My Favourite Murder a lot! I'm a murderino for sure 🤟 Oh, and also Ologies by Allie Ward. Because we need to stupid questions to smart people to keep on learning stuff.
