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 :)

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!

Postcards

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:

☆ map cards ☆ Vintage pin ups ☆ Fantasy: elves / fairies / dragons / mythological creatures / mermaids / unicorns ☆ 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: Great card, thanks. In answer to your question, yes, I've been to Berlin. When I was in the Army I was stationed in Germany twice, once in Berlin at the U.S. Chancery at Neustädtische Kirchstrasse. About ten years later I accompanied my sister and aunt on a trip to Poland and we stopped several days in Berlin.
Response: I am so happy to hear that you liked my card! Thanks for answering my question too. Berlin is just an awesome city!

Response: Thank you for the rating! So sorry it is without any comment. A little thank you goes a long way ;) I know we all have a busy schedule, but I always put a lot of time and effort in my postcards (besides money!) and a little thank you would make a world's difference. Happy swapping! *smiles*

Ps-thanks for the Nijntje postage! I was so sad the Dick Bruna house was being renovated this summer as I was so close (Den Haag).
