About Me

Hi, nice to meet you! I am Katja from the Netherlands. I love to send happy mail and make other people happy :) I really like personal swaps, so if you're interested, please send me a message!

If there's any problem with a swap I sent you, please let me know so I can make it up before rating me down. I send all my swaps on time unless, for some reason, I can't. In that case, I'll let you know, and I'll keep you updated. I always take a look at my partner's profile, to see if I have anything that she would love :)

I really like to get to know people better, so I'd love to receive things like a long letter, your favorite quote, a picture of your pet, etc. I also love to receive handmade things and decorated envelopes!

I started collecting postage stamps in a journal, but only the ones that are on the envelopes that I receive (so please put postage stamps on the envelope instead of a code or something like that, but don't send me some used postage stamps that you received). I'd be really happy if you'd do that :) I hope to receive postage stamps from as many different countries as possible! The reason that I only collect the stamps that you use on my envelope, is that I want to see from how many different countries I've received mail.

In the Netherlands, mail will only be picked up from the mailbox on Monday till Friday, around 5:00 pm. So when I post your swap on Friday, after 5:00 pm, it will be postmarked on Monday. We also don't receive mail on Sunday and Monday.


What I don't like to receive

I don't like to receive:

  • vintage / old school stuff, except vintage themed washi samples

  • tea/coffee

  • Disney and princess themed things

  • postcards

  • childish things

  • halloween/gothic stuff

  • old/used postage stamps (except the ones that you use on the envelope you sent to me because I collect them)

  • religious things

  • ribbon

  • buttons

  • pens / pencils


What I like to receive

A few things that I like to receive:

  • (handmade) envelopes with a nice pattern or print

  • stickers

  • washi tape (and washi samples)

  • embellishments (also handmade!)

  • die-cuts (I have a die-cutting machine, so I also like metal die-cuts)

  • quotes, I'd love to know your favorite quote :)

  • pretty papers

  • stencils for backgrounds

  • wooden veneer pieces/flourishes in cute shapes

  • rubber/clear stamps and ink pads

  • craft supplies for my Bullet journal or Travel journal

  • cute shaped paperclips (no normal ones)

  • wax seal stamps and melts (also pre-made ones!)

  • handmade things, like an ATC, zine, pocket letter (I'd also like to receive empty pocket letter cases), flipbook, etc.


Washi tape

I love washi tape! Some themes I like (the size doesn't matter): elephants, tropical, travel, summer, plants/succulents, world map, planner, gold / white (I really like the combination), cute animals, galaxy (with planets and stars), cats, sea (underwater, waves) and washi tape that I can use for scrapbooking.

I don't really like to receive basic washi tape without a pattern/print because I have lots of them.

I use stickers all the time, and I adore them. My favorite themes are actually the same as my favorite washi themes. I also like scratch stickers, 3D stickers, and Kawaii stickers.

Hi Katja! The stickers from the "Cheap Postage Tag Your It." arrived. Thank you so much!!! Really amazing work and I can say that I've never received anything like these stickers. Very, very awesome, I can't wait to use them! Thank you also for sending me more than 10, very generous ^^

cauchy81sk on Sep 20, 2018:

The envelope for "5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Tag ~ International" arrived, thanks a lot! Already the envelope was great and decorated, and then sending 10 washi samples instead of 5 - wow, thank you!!! They are all cool and I look forward to using them! :) And using the playing cards was a neat idea, I'll use it too when sending some washi. ;)

Cheap Postage Tag International & Swap Tag! arrived today. The coins are perfect for my collection. Thanks so much.

You'd probably love the Butchart Gardens in Victoria on Van Island. If you go north of that, visit Parksville - I love that place. The ferry ride to Van Is. takes about 1.5 hours - you may see dolphins and whales.
