About Me

Hi there! I am Nina, a 30-something mother of 3 (boy 2012, girl 2015, boy 2016).

Ever since I was a little girl, I was always busy with scissors, pens and paper so about writing was a natural interest. When we had a penpal exchange in the 5th grade to practice English, my love for penpalling had begun! Penpalling lead to exchanging FBs (friendship booklets) when a penpal introduced me to one. Those eventually lead to exchanging decos and slams. As of today I am still active in swapping slams and I have several lovely penpals from all over the world.

I love picking out postcards and preparing packages! Maybe even more as much as receiving them (^_^). Although i love the sound of (fat) mail falling down on my doormat and love opening packages.

I’ve always had a weakness for Kawaii stationery, but at the same time it is so very hard to find any here in The Netherlands or let alone in Europe. That’s when I finally decided to set up Stationery Heaven in early 2013 during my maternity leave. Stationery Heaven is an online Webshop selling cute stationery such as letter pads and letter sets. Additionally, I offer decotapes, stickers, accessories, and a wide range of postcards for Postcrossing lovers. www.stationeryheaven.nl :)

Stationery Heaven

Offering these Kawaii products as well as getting the kind feedback from happy customers makes Stationery Heaven a real joy! I love to see that these cute products make other people so excited. It’s a wonderful feeling and a great motivation to find new products and improve the shop everyday!

I prefer my postcards written and stamped please! That means NO envelope. I like the way they get a little banged up during their travel. (If we do a blank postcards swap I of course prefer them in an envelope, unwritten)


I pretty much always give hearts for swaps. I sort of feel bad if I don't get a heart myself and I don't want that feeling for someone else. I always put my heart in my swaps and postcards. Besides, I love hearts


I'm also a member on Postcrossing: ninola. My favourite types of cards, to name a few ideas:

erle feronniere

☆ map cards ☆ Vintage pin ups ☆ Fantasy: elves / fairies / dragons / mythological creatures / mermaids / unicorns ☆ The Witcher / Geralt of Rivia ☆ Rainbows or rainbow colours ☆ (local) people ☆ Castles or bridges ☆ Doors and windows ☆ Black and white photography style ones ☆ Eyes ☆ Mailbox themed ☆ Mucha ☆ beautiful scenery or beautiful still life ☆ Cavallini style vintage ☆ lovely bright coloured ones or in pastel colours

I'm not really into multiview postcards unless it's a really neat or exceptional one.

Comment: I actually really love this card, thank you!!!!
Comment: Hi Nina ! First off, I am so sorry, you & your husband had the covid 19 virus. That had to have been so awful for you both. I hope by now, you both have completely recovered. I can't get the virus. It will kill me. Because I have Autoimmune system disorder. Which means I can't fight off any kind of sickness. Thank you so much for the beautiful fantasy postcard, 2 beautiful fairy notecards, and the Christmas stickers. I love them all so very much!

Comment: I have a walnut tree filled with squirrels outside my house. They get my car so dirty and leave huge messes in the street. Before this, I used to love squirrels, now they drive me nuts. They are still cute though.

Comment: Hi Nina! Nice surprise to get a PC from you! Thank you so much for the fall day PC with cute cat & squirrel. I love it! Oh, I love Halloween too! I have my front yard all decorated for it. It looks so awesome too! There will not be Halloween here this year, in our tiny rural town of Canton, (Pa). Because the covid virus made it's way here, Sadly. So no Halloween parade or trick or treating for the kids this year. Poor kids! You said, It's becoming wide spread there with Halloween, even though it's not celebrated there. Who knows, It just may become a Holiday there yet.
Response: Yay, I'm super glad to hear it made it's way down there safe and sound. Sorry for my late update, I've been struck with corona virus and have been really sick. Getting a little bit better by the day, slowly getting my breath back <3
Comment: Thank you so much for the cards! I am sure they will find a home somewhere :) Have a great day!
Response: You're most welcome! ;) Thanks for tapping that heart, they make my day ❤️❤️❤️
