I am Chantalle de Heer, a 27-year-old girl from the Netherlands. I'm an Entrepreneurship & Retail Management student. I have always loved helping people, and by becoming a business advisor I can help companies and the people working there. Which sounds like a dream to me. I also have my own postcards brand named Around the world. My dream is to grow this into a big business that sells many postcards and other stationery products, featuring many artists from around the world.
My hobbies include going to the gym (weight training), shopping, Postcrossing and collecting beautiful postcards, bullet journaling, Penpalling, making envelopes, reading, watching movies and television series, travelling and spending time with my boyfriend. I'm also a huge Christmas lover, so I always love to join a lot of advent calendar swaps, and also host my own. I have a Facebook group for advent calendar swaps as well, feel free to join if are in any advent calendar swaps this year 💖 Group link: click here.
I have been Postcrossing for 10+ years. I am active in multiple Dutch Facebook groups for swapping postcards. I also do a lot of personal swaps on my Instagram @buzzygirl93 I also adore beautiful envelopes, stamps and cute decorations. I love decorating postcards and making people happy to receive them.
There are many types of postcards that I like, but there are some brands and illustrators that I love:
Aurélie Blanz, Teken-ing, Mila Made, LouPaper, Sanrio, studio draak, Timi of Sweden, Pippa Knus, Zintenz (Claire van Heukelom), Irina Glushcenko, Kuukeluus, Heleen van den Thillart, Anna Speshilova, Little Lefty Lou, Live Life Happy, Blond Amsterdam, Lemon Bird, Medley, Edition Gollong (Mila Marquis), Dille & Kamille, Wieslawa Burnat, Ila Illustrations, Olya Luki, studio inktvis/schatkist, Irina Smirnova, EDC Izou, Susan Wheeler, Daddy Long Legs, Disney.
I also love postcards with illustrations of girls, llama/alpaca, black&white cats, lavender, Russia, unicorns, mermaids, pastel colours and glitters. Also really love shaped postcards (other than regular A6 size). But really anything that is cute is welcome ♥
I like receiving/sending and decorating postcards, journalling, penpalling and making envelopes. I really love illustrations, so I like collecting postcards with cute illustrations and beautifully illustrated papers. I love illustrations like the ones you can find in my moodboard.
I also enjoy Chain Cards, I am also hosting a monthly swap with travelling postcards with stickers (every receiver adds 1 sticker to your postcard until it is filled up). If you are adding a sticker for me I would love anything cute, colourful, shiny... ♥ if the sticker matches the postcard that would be really cool as well.
I love all sorts of tea, except for some black tea that is too strong. I mostly love the packaging, I collect the tea packages in my tea journal. So any type of tea with beautiful packaging is very welcome ^.^ I especially love collection holiday themed tea, especially Christmas tea. It would also be great if the tea is soy lecithin free or organic. But this is not necessary.
I also love trying out snacks from other countries. Anything chocolate is always welcome.
I have been to the following places before I started collecting magnets. Still looking for those. Please let me know if you are interested in swapping one of the following magnets for something from the Netherlands. If you send me one as a surprise, please add your address and I will make sure to surprise you with something that matches your profile.
Let me know if you want to do a private swap ^.^
