my Postcrossing profile

About me...

Hello my name is Monique, 44 years old, living in the Netherlands. I'm creative and love recycling.

I'm mom to my 10 yrs old daughter. Together with my hubbie. We have to little dogs called Luna & Browney. Just like my daughter and hubbie, they are so sweet!

My favourite ways to spend my time are... 1. just sit down with a warm cup of tea in my hands. A moment to do nothing at all! 2. sitting at the kitchentable, sending mail. 3. go shopping in a second hand store.

About tea...

I love drinking tea! At the moment my favorite tea is cherry. But I like to receive any beautiful, delicious or weird tasting tea :-)

About cardboard postcards...

I love recycled postcards. Do you know a way to use a fully written postcard for the second time? Or what else can you use for postcard? Surprise me :-) Cardboard postcards are cool! Please make a little drawing at the back. Don't know what to write. Please, write something about your Grandma, the book you are reading or your favorite pizza. Are you a skirt or a trouser girl? Do you have nice neighbours? Which sock is first in the morning? The one on your left foot, or the one on your right? ... You can write about anything :-)

About envelopes...

I love envelopes. It feels like a mailbox present. What's in it??? You can always send an envelope! Even when the swap says naked... feel free to use an envelope :-) I open the envelopes together with my daughter. We love to know your country in a fun and inexpensive way: please add a trainticket, a little coin, some used stamps, a teabag or anything fun & flat you can think of :-)

Comment: ❤❤What an amazing day for my postbox!!! Thank you so much! The envelope & note are adorable! It feels like my daughter was 9 just yesterday. Once they hit that pre-teen age, time starts to fly by! 😭 She drives me crazy, but I wouldn't have her any other way...teen attitude & all. It sounds like you and your daughter are lucky to have each other also! 😊 It's hot & humid here today, so I'm drinking water, but thinking maybe I'll make some tea cold brewed. Thank you again!!!! Hugs, Kerry

Comment: Dear Monique, Thanks so much for the beautiful post card of the children's book cat character. I love it. I hadn't heard of him before. I love the stamps, especially the Miffy one. My sisters partner has a Dutch background and I made their daughter Claudia a Miffy cake for her 2nd birthday. Happy swapping, Kylie (CavalierCommunications)

You are the sweetest! Your surprise letter arrived in the post today!! I knew I wasn't expecting anything, so had no idea what it was. It kept me guessing all day as I didn't have time to open it before I left the house. What a lovely surprise, it really made me smile! Thank you times a million! I love the envelope, especially the gnome speech bubble!! :D Anyway thank you again for the wonderful surprise, I will definitely be putting the priority labels to use! ♥♥♥

I just rated you for the awesome card you sent me for the Chunk O Cardboard International Dec '13 swap,... I just wanted to add that if you'd like I'd love to send you something in return. For you and your daughter. I am so happy with what you have sent me, and would love to return the favor. Message me if you'd like, and I'll send something out for you! <3

FrancescaP on Sep 19, 2013:

HI Monique, you made me smile and laugh out loud today, when I found your tiny envelope in my mailbox! Ahah, it's fantastic, I have never received anything like that! And I'm actually quite surprised the mailman hasn't lost it ;-) Thanks a million!!!

betty194 on Aug 21, 2013:

Hi! This is just a friendly reminder that the sending deadline for the swap "Handmade envies made of vintage childrenbooks #2" is today. Have a nice day, best wishes, Betty (host)

FrancescaP on Aug 18, 2013:

Hi dear! Sorry I had missed your comment on my "Tea for every day" swap, I have just read it! Of course, I'd be delighted to set up a private swap between the two of us, I've got plenty of new teas and I'd be happy to share them with you and your family! What about a private "Teas for September" swap (30 different teas)? With a swap deadline around August 24th, there should be enough time to prepare the swap and also to receive it before September, what do you think? :-)

betty194 on Jul 28, 2013:

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I am doing a second round of the swap: "Handmade envies made of vintage childrenbooks #2". Maybe you´d like to join again ;).
