About Me

Hello ! I'm Sylvie, 46 (NOOOO ;-) ), Belgian woman, open-minded, crazy about penpalling, swapping, collecting things and crafting (even if I'm not talented at all lol). I have 5 jobs and penpalling, swapping are my main hobbies : I love making my envelopes or decorating them.
I love washi/deco tapes (I have about 900 different ones), writing papers (at least 250 different ones), postcards, notecards (can't stop buying them). Exchanging with people is sooooo exciting ! I'm the admin of a small group of swapping on Facebook (only for European as a lot of American people don't want to swap overseas - I understand it well due to postal costs - what a pity).
I have 2 grown children and a fantastic man. They use to laugh when they see me trying to make a filpbook or a pocket letter (because I have 2 left hands lol).

Favorite Music

I can't spend a day without listening to music. Some of my favourite bands are Snow Patrol, Green Day, U2 and many others

Favorite Books

I'm a huge Stephen King's books ! But I read any book I can get in my hands. I've just begun to read in english... Awwww : it's so hard for a Blgian little soul :-p

About penpalling

I've been penpalling since I was 11 yo and opening my mailbox every day is one of the best moment of the day :-) I still looking for pen friends in IsraΓ«l and in the Middle East in general. I also like to exchange fb's but also to make fb's, Lb'S, deco fb's etc

Comment: Thank you for the fun card, Sylvie! I love the card, your handwriting, the stamp, etc. We did not have a white X-mas either, but have had snow since the first of the year and our ski resorts west of Denver are loving all the snow they've been getting. Happy 2019 to you!
Response: Glad you like it !

Comment: Thank you very much for your lovely responses :) I agree with you about the English books - when you are reading your friends' letters you feel soo perfect, and voilΓ‘, a book comes and ruins your self-confidence! :( However, sometimes I realize that American books are easier to read, they somehow use more simple English I guess.

Good morning!

Oh my goodness! You have five jobs??? That's crazy! How do you manage anything else?!

It's not like I can say anything though! I worked six out of seven days last week! Ha :D

I hope you have a great day!

Hello Sylvie,

I would love to see your decorated envelopes! The amount of color and design that goes into paper is so amazing. I have a huge collection too! Maybe you can email me and we can set a private swap for a decorated envelope and note card. Have a great week!

HEY! you have 900 Washi tapes! That’s amazing! I bet you have some for every occasion! I wonder how you store it all! Have a good day!
