About Me

*** Please message me if anything went wrong with my parcel or letter! I have never had any problems, and I always send on time :) ***

--- DUTCHIES: I started a new group for everyone from the Netherlands! It's called "Nederlandse Swappers" http://www.swap-bot.com/group/c0e9cc93caeb7dd030f195df9c846af2/about ---

Hey all! My name is Vivian, I am 23 years old and live in the Netherlands. I recently discovered snail mail and bullet journaling, and am now expanding in other "creative areas"! I love folding envelopes and creating cards, and would love to swap mail with people around the world. I have around 10 penpals, whom I really enjoy writing with.

I'm into calming flowers, leaves, plants, cacti or succulents, water, or animals like cats, foxes and fish. But feel free to surprise me! More info down below.

I'm a recycler - so if you receive a swap from me, the giftbags might be reused. I will only re-send items that are still in good condition, though. Feel free to send me recycled envelopes/bags as well!

When you rate my swap, please include a little note! I love hearing what you think of it, and whether you liked it or not.

If I really love your swap, I might ask for your address so I can send you something in return.


Currently looking for: pink/white bakers twine, mint/lime/light green twine, cute buttons in pastel colours and patterned tissue wrap. Also, I love letter stickers - I prefer full sheets. Die-cuts (from one of those big-shot machines :p) I'd LOVE to receive: the word 'hello' or 'love', and flowers or butterflies with holes in them if that makes sense. So they're kind of see through!

*** ITEMS *** I love SO many things in mail, so feel free to go crazy! I love ribbon, trims, bows, sealing wax, stickers, washi tape, pretty paper, bookmarks, postcards, lomo cards, die cuts, or animal/flower/random shapes made with embossing machines like big shot... Anything that I can use for snail mail, too.

Also - I recently became a Crazy Plant Lady, so if you have any (indoor plant) seeds with name & instructions, feel free to send them too! I especially love cacti and succulents.

*** PRINTS *** My favourite cards/prints/paper/stickers/washi usually include either watercolour drawings and flowers or botanical prints. Anything with pastel colours is usually good, too! My favourite colours are blue and green, but purple and pink are also in my stash. I also really like cute cats or foxes!

*** MAIL *** I'm the type of person who loves mail made with attention: include stories, something about yourself, your favourite tea, photos (of your cat, haha!), a quote you love or some words in your native language and you make me extremely happy!

I'm more into calming flowers, leaves, plants, cacti or succulents, water, or animals like cats and fish. But feel free to surprise me!

*** TEA/COFFEE *** I love receiving either! I love any type of tea except fruit teas. Also, I have plenty of "normal" green/black/white tea, but I'd like to get some of your favourites!

My favourite brand is clipper tea, but I also like loose leaf or whichever.


Something I don't really like: prints with the 'kawaii' style drawings (anything with faces, haha!), cartoons or drawings of humans. I personally also don't usually like blank postcards from cities and stuff, unless you write on them!

I love tea, but don't like fruit teas.

Colours I don't really use: red, orange, yellow and brown. I hardly ever use any dark colours, but I love pastels!

Also, I have no use for paper napkins (however cute they are!) and I personally don't like the plastic washi tape.

Please don't send me blank city/tourist postcards. I have no use for them. (It's fine if you use them to write your swap messsage on - I'd love to see where you live!)

Favorite Books

I prefer reading fiction books. Starting from Harry Potter (I love that those books have magic, but a connection to the real world as well) to the Hunger Games and many inbetween.

Favorite Television

Netflix: how to get away with murder, Orphan Black, Pretty Little Liars, Elementary, Please Like Me, Lovesick, New Girl, Modern Family, Orange is the new black, Sherlock.... So many more! Anything 'detective' or NCIS-like to lawyers (suits!) to fiction (magicians). Tips welcome!

Favorite Music

I love rock, alternative and indie! My all time favourite is Radiohead but I have so many more: from RY X to Django Django, Muse, José González, the Black Keys, Alt-J, Woodkid, Arctic Monkeys and soooo many more. Feel free to include a list of your fav songs!


If you'd like to swap, you can also contact me via Instagram @thepaperletterblog I love getting in touch! I recently got a box filled with papergoodies, including Disney-stuff which I'd like to swap.

Comment: Oh girl your swap finally made it and I loveee it! The envelope is gorgeous!! I loved the way you wrapped washi around those tiny tags and the die cuts are amazing! That tea is so delicious, I love it! I also loved the stickers, postcard, just everything! And thanks for making sure I can reuse the bags you sent me, that means a lot to me and I'll definitely be reusing them =) Loved this swap, looking forward to keep swapping with you!

Response: Wow, it arrived so fast! I'm soooo glad to hear that, you've made my day! <3
Comment: I like the colors you used for this flip book. I find that as long as there is teal in something-it is wonderful. Very nice theme and embellishments-fun goodies within flip book and also great ones tied into little bundle. I love getting book pages in the language you are from! And map circles! Thanks for you nice letter-thanks for sharing!
Response: I'm glad you liked it! I had to go through my stack of papers, but in the end I was able to find some colours I thought would match your style. It makes me so happy to hear that you liked it!

marianne81 rated for Losse thee swap on Nov 7, 2017
Comment: Super bedankt voor de thee. Het ruikt erg lekker, vooral de aardbei ruik je erg goed samen met de kruidige chai dus kan me voorstellen dat je daar wat minder van nodig hebt. Ik heb de thee die ik jou laatst heb gestuurd besteld bij Fleur de cafe, een online groothandel in losse thee en koffie waar je ook als consument gewoon kan bestellen vanaf 100gr per smaak. En soms haal ik ook wel eens bij De Tuinen en bij de Erica mijn losse thee. EN ik kwam er ook achter dat je hier in de stad bij de Yoghurt Barn ook zakjes losse thee kan kopen, en zij hebben ook heerlijke smaken.
