About Me

Thanks for stopping by. Hello, You can call me Inge, I live in Belgium near the city of Antwerp, together with my husband, son and a crazy cat. I live in the dutch-speaking part of Belgium. I've been writing letters for a few years now and it's so much fun to decorate them and send little presents. I like to create collages with old pictures, magazines,... And it must be great to make things for people you don't know from places you've never heard about.... When I'm not writing letters I love to go out for a walk in nature, do some cycling in summer, love to travel, go to concerts, visite a museum, dance,...

S U M M E R S T O P —- For this summer I won’t be so active on swapbot, too bussy doing other things. I hope I can do a little swap if I find the time. See you all again in September and I hope you will have a lovely summer too x

Favorite Music

I loveJazz from the '40 and '50, Soul&Funk,Bowie, Nick Cave... All kinds of music. It depends a lot on my mood of the moment, sometimes I just want to dance, sometimes I need my music to relax, sometimes I just need to sing out loud...

Favorite Crafts

Love knitting, macrame, taking pictures, collages, crochet, ... Swapbot is a lovely way to stimulate me to be creative. I've made my first ATCs, did some painting, doodling,

Likes

I'm a great fan of vintage/ retro things, from the 40' till the 70'. Old pictures, old postcards, pages from old magazines, botanicals, black-and-white-cards,... Tea/coffee, special beers from around the world (ipa's),... Things homemade from things you find around the house, thriftstore. If you put your heart in it then I will like it, that's how I make my swaps. I like it when you send a little note in your swap telling a bit about yourself, what you like, how you've spend your day, why you made your swap like that, it doesn't have to be a long letter, just a little note. I like to know the person behind the swap a little.
I have a thing with stars.

No fan of

Bling bling ~ Pink ~ too childish things. I don't like too much drama. If you didn't receive a swap or a rating, please contact me. Thank you.

Comment: I love to be the last one to complete the PC and send it back to its rightful owner, so thank you for passing it on and adding cool elements. I think I'll go down the African trail you've prepared for me. Arcachon sounded like fun: I haven't been there for such a long time, but would love to go back. It's back to work for me too this week, but the temperatures are getting lower finally! See you soon in the mail, Inge!
Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart. Yesss temperatures are better in Belgium too. I was so happy with the first rain! Have fun completing the pc and hope to see you again in another swap. Lots of love.

Comment: Thanks for the PC and the nice note! I love the saying on the PC--so true! It reminds me of a favorite quote from Thoreau--"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them." Cool start for a collab, too! Thanks!
Response: Thanks for the rating and heart. What a great quote! Enjoy the weekend x

Comment: Your bird swarm landed savley here! So cute! From the hand drawn envelope to the little bird envie (I love the idea of using the tag string for "closing" the envie!)... Thanks for that fun swap!
Response: So glad you like it. I was not sure about the drawnings on the envie. It’s something I don’t do verry often... Have a lovely sunday.

Comment: Great PC! And yes, I want to be one of the "fun" old ladies that everyone wants to hang around with! Obviously, I love Greek food; dolmathes are my favorite! Have fun in Greece, I'm sooo jealous! Thank you!
Response: Thanks for the rating and heart. Today the weather in Belgium is screaming for dolmathes and greek salad with feta-cheese... Bought some on an international market here in Antwerp. It will be great with a lovely glass of retsina tonight, yamas (don't know if the spelling is correct). Have a lovely weekend!

Comment: Altijd zo zalig om te zien dat ik een enveloppe heb van jou! Dank je voor de zaadjes, ik heb zelf geen tuintje op dit moment, maar ik houd ze bij voor de toekomst xD Dank je wel!
Response: Het is ook altijd leuk om iets voor jou te maken. Het was een beetje een gok om de zaadjes te sturen, hopelijk komt dat tuintje er in de toekomst wel. Lieve groetjes en tot swap ;-)

Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome ATC! I love it! I always look for old school books or how to books and see how things have changed, too. Especially old books on how to run a household or guides on manners. Thank you, also, for your note. It's so nice to receive a little info about your partner rather than just the swap name and ID. :)
Response: Thank you for the rating. Writing a little note just feels more personal. Nice to hear you love those old books too. Have a lovely day. Lots of love

Hello! My great-grandparents emigrated from Belgium to the US in the early 1900s. I hope to someday visit Belgium :-)
