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.
I don't like to receive:
vintage / old school stuff, except vintage themed washi samples
Disney and princess themed things
old/used postage stamps (except the ones that you use on the envelope you sent to me because I collect them)
pens / pencils
A few things that I like to receive:
(handmade) envelopes with a nice pattern or print
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 :)
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.
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.
