About Me

26/11/20: We are still in 2. lockdown. Post offices are open! We are able to receive, I just get mail in bulks again. (9 days nothing and then suddenly a stuffed p.o. box).

November: Mail seems to slow down again. You have not been rated by me? Then I have not received your item! I always rate the same day as I receive them!!

We open our p.o. Box at the weekend and then I rate all mail in one go.

are you missing mail from me? Them please send me a message!!

Thank you.

Hello :)

I will delete this sooner or later, but here we are:

So: All swaps I host are senders choice. They have to be, because I spend a lot of time in hospital. All envelopes are prepared, have a date on it and need just to be addressed. This is for the worst case. When I am fresh :) then I do not use this envelopes and make personal ones. I had do learn this the hard way. So please be not upset, when from time to time there is no personal attach to it.

And second: I love to make my envelopes out of magazine pages, catalogues or calendars. This is my happy place. Listening tto Audiobooks and make them. If you do not like these envelopes, then please tell me beforehand, I will use a regular then. This is not about the money. It is about my happy place and my tiny-step-a-day for the environment.

Favorite Crafts

  • MailArt. I love it.

  • Journaling - colourful and playful :), full of childrensbooks-illustrations, postcards and fun quotes on the left side, on the right side I journal what comes to mind :) (so not so much vintage perfection, more "oh, there is another dino-page" haha)

  • Collage

  • Origami

  • handmade stickers

  • Everything with paper :)

What I like.

  • early mornings

  • crisp air

  • used postage stamps. or mint.

  • kindness

  • richard scarry

  • Dick Bruna

  • classic Paddington Bear. from darkest Peru :)

  • little soft spot for Moonins, Peanuts.

  • honeybees and bumblebees

  • Flow, MaVie, TheGuardian, Hygge, ..

  • learning Dutch

  • office stickers: dots, arrows,labels,.

  • fun page flags

  • ladybugs

  • hedgehog a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g :)

  • neon

  • mini-zines

  • Themed Happy mail (think themes like: old telephones, music tapes, yellow, moomins,...)

  • And I seem to be the one person, you can send tiny tiny stickers, notebooks and pencils to :) :) :)

and finally...

Do I have dislikes? Yes, of course I have. Will I list them? No.

I have met wonderful people here at swap-bot. They were carefuI with their swaps and put so much effort in them. I was happy all day long because of their thoughtfulness and kindness, although the swap might not be exactly my taste.

For me swap-bot is about thoughtfulness and inspiration, about humour, kindness and art. I maybe am more into dinosaurs and less into fairies. But if you put a little winged fairy on a dinosaurs' shoulders on your mailart: this fairy would be the most treasured fairy on the planet.

To be honest: there is no chance I would appreciate a swap which is against people (how they look like, whom they love, where they live,..) or animals. But anything put together with respect, care and humour is very much appreciated.

Please send just kidfriendly things. That would be really nice :)

At the moment...

WTA: IFM March20 - not sent yet (India)

CPG wishlist April: one came back, sent again 8.5.(to keahirada)

Sunshine: Postcard tag 25.5.PinappeTarts

If you are my swap partner and are a collector of teatags or empty teabags, please let me know. I tuck as many in our swap as I can. or we could do a private swap. I am always open for a swap for other leightweight things like used stamps (preferred) or airmail labels, stickers or your favourite vegan reecipe :)
