About Me

last time rated and received: november 9th

Thank you for everything :)

Hello :)

I am working nine to five at day and adoring paper at night. I have a job full of all-day-long-communication. I love my job very much , but I really appreciate a few quiet minutes a day :)

Illustrations and images are a great fun to cut and paste. I love the texture of every paper and the sound of it. And how it looks :)

Letters, mail art and everyday-ephemera are a great pleasure to me.

Flow-ish junk journals make me so happy :) I love to make them. I even prepare them for myself for vacation, too. To have some paper, when needed. You know. just in case :)

And travelling, reading, gardening and spending quality-time with my partner, too. :)


Favorite Crafts

✂️ Mail-Art. I love it.




✂️everything with paper, I suppose.

✂️making my own envelopes.

✂️crocheting and embroidery.

✂️and so on :)

What I like.

early mornings.

reading at the balkony.

learning dutch.

yellow. mint-green. lime-green.blue.



hedgehogs and beavers.

children's book illustrations.


bees and honeycombs :)

summer rain.

Terry Pratchett. Jane Austen. Jasper Fforde.

charley harper.

peas from my fathers garden.

dick bruna (the havank cover is by him too)

address labels.

dennison-ish labels :)

stamps. postage (used or mint), rubber, acrylic, used,... I love them all :)

ephemera. from the 80s till today :)

classic Paddington bear from darkest Peru.



Richard Scarry.

first snow of the year.

flow magazine. and ma vie.

i loved flow weekly. sigh.

garden gnomes.






wishes: Twinings Green Tea Fudge Melts, polka dot stickers and envelope seals, trader joe stickers ( I made the mistake and googled them...) and anything with a dodo-image :) and:

Tabs! Do you own a tab-die? Or a tab- punch? You can send me all your unwanted punchies. Always. Paper, upcycling, recycling. I always have to handcut them...And I really use them for organizing paper bits and bobs...


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 litte 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 :)

Private Swaps

Yes, private swaps are possible as long as they are not too big or too stressful.

As I drink a lot of tea, I have quite a few empty teawrappers and teatags...if there is someone collecting them, a swap for used stamps or a few lovely pageflags is always welcome :) (And: if you are my swappartner, please tell me that you collect them. I will tuck as many as possible in!)

I am always open for a private swap for The Buckingham House/Palace stamps from Royal Mail. I especially adore the " Buckingham House 1819". sigh. If you have any (used is fine) I am thrilled to swap
