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

  • tea/coffee

  • Disney and princess themed things

  • doilies (I recently bought a lot of doilies, but I don't use them very often)

  • postcards

  • halloween/gothic stuff

  • old/used postage stamps (except the ones that you use on the envelope that 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 also like to know your favorite quote :)

  • nice 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, hot air balloons, galaxy (with planets and stars), cats, sea (underwater, waves) and washi tape that I can use for scrapbooking.

I don't like vintage themed washi tape and basic washi without a pattern

Snailermailer on Sep 30, 2018:

Thank you for the envelopes for the who likes tag, I ❤️ then 😊😊

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.

I really hope you enjoy your visit to Canada! Vancouver is lovely. Granville Island and Stanley Park are the 2 main attractions in Vancouver but they are very busy. I recommend checking out the walking (Dr. Sun-Yet-Sun Gardens) in Chinatown downtown. They have a wonderful, peaceful feel and you are within walking distance of some amazing dim sum!

Depending on what you are into this city and surrounding area have almost anything you could hope to find. :) I hope you have a great time!
