About Me

UPDATE: 7th. March 2023. My husband underwent surgery last week. We hope he'll be home back soon and recovers quickly. So at the moment I'm at the clinic or busy with kids!

TRAVEL NOTICE: 16th Jan. 2023, I will be out of the country because of my mom’s health issues until mid or end of February. When I get back home I will open the mail which has arrived and rate. If you didn’t get any of my swaps I sent before I left, you can contact me. I won’t have Internet all the time but when I do I’ll reply to my messages and send photos of the swap. When I get back, I will contact you again and we’ll work something out. Thanks for your understanding and patience!!!

Hi! My name is Vanessa. I’m from Spain but live in Germany. I’m a mother of 4. I love creativity. I’m new to Swap-Bot. I’m so glad I found this site. I’m looking forward to have fun with swaps and getting to know a lot of people.

I love the holidays specially Christmas, which is just around the corner!

I love animals, cats, dogs. My favorite animal is the tiger. I like turtles also. I would love to volunteer some day and help them and get to see the turtle babies hatching out and going in to the sea!

I love many things like art of all kinds, mail art and crafting. I enjoy mixed media projects. I love sewn projects. I like upcycling, card making, art journals, junk journals, etc. I’m starting to learn and practice hand/brushlettering and doodling at the moment.

Favorite Crafts

My favorite crafts are:

Crochet, I like crocheting scarfs, hats, small amigurumis like cupcakes, etc,

Knitting I haven’t done in a while because I’m doing more crochet.

Sewing, I like to sew scrunchies, headbands, pencil cases, small bags, etc.

Cross stitch projects like for Christmas, etc.

I love doing paper crafts, stationery, cards, boxes, pockets, etc. Also decorating envelopes. I love using paper, newspaper, magazine cutouts, paper with musical notes that are in other languages in my collages, mixed media art and projects. I also love to collect found objects and any vintage photographs to use in my art, including old photos and/or slides.

I like to learn new things or techniques for art and crafts. I also love to recycle or upcycle items and give them a new use, specially because they tell a story! I like to include this items in my crafts and mixed media projects.

At the moment I’m a beginner in doodling and hand/brushlettering but I’m loving it!

Favorite Colors

My favorite colors include purple (violet), blue and green, like the ocean, teal blue, gold, silver, bronze, pink, rose gold, autumn colors, rusty colors, pastels, neons. It depends on the project. Actually, I can't think of a color I really don't like.

Favorite Music

I like different genres. I love to dance to music. I like to listen radio music or my Playlist.




the 80s

the 90s

Top 40

Dua Lipa

Ed Sheeran

One Republic

and many more!

Favorite Movies

I like musicals like Grease (I love it), The Greatest Showman, Dirty Dancing. But also science fiction, fantasy, action, etc. Like Mandalorian, Star Wars, James Bond, Twilight Saga, RomComs like To All The Boys x 3 (love them), A Walk to Remember. Family movies like Home Alone ( we love to watch it on Christmas) and much more. Only scary movies I don’t like at all.

Likes/Dislikes/Allergies/ Please don’t send!

I’m allergic to hair of some cats and dogs. So please no hair from animals in the swap. Thanks! No Dairy please (so nothing with lactose) because I have a lactose intolerance. Please not Black tea nor Green tea (I like them but my body doesn’t feel well after drinking them) I don’t like Diddl No anime, manga, kawaii or cartoon-y type things (except Tintin) The only cartoons I like is Tintin, which I loved reading as a teenager. I don’t like the smell of smoke on things Incense. I like soft scents not very strong. Patchouli I don’t like at all. I like fruity scents like lemon, orange, etc. I love my roses in my garden but otherwise not the smell of things with rose scent.

Swapping Info

I will mark items sent the day I put them in the mailbox. Because I live in a rural area, in the country, the mail is taken away by the mail carrier and somewhere else it may get a postmark dated a day or two later than the “sent” date.

Take also into consideration that mail to other countries like USA or Asia may take 4 to 5 weeks. Specially now in the Christmas season it can take even longer or even be undelivered.

So if you haven’t received anything from me, please always contact me before rating and we will work something out. I always take pictures of swaps before I send them out in case something goes wrong and also because I like to document and remember the things I create! ;-) Thanks!
