About Me

Hi! My name is Katja and I'm a 20-year-old industrial design student from the Netherlands. I really enjoy being creative and exchanging mail with people from all over the world :)

My biggest hobby is travelling. I absolutely love exploring new places, meeting new people, and learning about other cultures. My other hobbies include photography, bouldering (which is a form of climbing), playing the piano, hanging out with friends, reading, cooking, playing board & card games, being creative, and spending time outside and in nature (either hiking, cycling, on a longboard, canoe or stand-up paddle board).

Favorite Crafts

As for creative stuff, I enjoy doing lots of things. For example, scrapbooking, penpalling, watercolor painting, sketching, zentangle, making cards, envelopes & zines, handlettering, keeping a travel journal, etc.

I have tried and enjoyed making quite some different crafts so far, including ATC's, snailmail, inchies, pocket letters & mail art.


Kind of goodies I like to receive:

  • washi tape
  • stickers
  • letter writing paper
  • die-cuts
  • clear stamps
  • enamel pins!
  • watercolor paint
  • wax seal stamps
  • embellishments
  • pretty envelopes (all shapes)
  • fun shaped paperclips
  • postcards
  • handmade things

I especially like these things if they have one of the following themes: travel, summer, plants, woodland, elephants, cats, nature, sunset & galaxy. But I'm happy with anything I receive :)

Book recommendations, recipes (vegetarian), uncommon facts about your country, and words/sentences in your language with translations are always welcome and would be really appreciated!


  • Colours: teal/aqua/turquoise and pastels
  • Animals: elephants & cats (also have a cat, named Elmo)
  • Season: summer
  • Tea: rooibos & earl grey (but would love to try any unique flavor/your favorite tea!)
  • Plant: monstera
  • Chocolate: white & milk
  • Places: the beach & lakes surrounded by mountains
  • Music: 80s


I really love to receive touristic postcards from the place you live/a place you have visited with some information about the place written on the back!

Furthermore I love map postcards(!!!), postcards featuring cats or elephants (or any cute animal actually), botanical postcards, and nature/scenic postcards.

I prefer postcards sent naked, but wouldn't mind if you sent them in an envelope.


Things I'd rather not receive: anything related to religion or politics, and kiddie themed stuff (like dora & frozen). I also have no use for ribbons, sticky notes, and reward & alphabet stickers. I don't drink coffee. Lastly, I can't stand the smell of cigarettes.

Thank you for reading my profile! :)

Comment: bedankt :) the netherlands is for sure one of my fav visited countries. i went there again this year, but i did not go to utrecht, so it is very nice to get a postcard from there
Response: That's great, I'm glad you like it!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard! I loved your list of vacation destinations - they were so unique and it makes me interested in learning more about each place!
Response: You're welcome! I'm glad you liked my list :)
Comment: i LOVE your photos and love to learn about new places and see new scenery and that is just what you did for me!!! I love bouldering too! I have not been able to go for quite some time but it is always something to look for when I am out adventuring!! The scenery of the French Alps looks very much like where I grew up, Aspen, Colorado, USA! I miss the mountains so much now that I live near NYC! (I wish I knew you were visiting NYC! I would have come into the city to say hello!) You have a lot of artistic talent with drawing AND photography! I love the photos and story behind them all! Thank you for sharing your JULY with me!! Gabi
Response: I'm really happy you liked them!! Aww that's so nice :) thank you!
Comment: Thank you for your beautiful postcard 🌷 I totally agree with your list! I have been to Iceland and it has been one of my favourite memories off all time. We even got to see the northern lights for free on our way home in the middle of the night after a karaoke evening with some Icelanders in a cute little bar 🍺
Response: You're welcome! That sounds absolutely amazing 🤩

Comment: Wat leuk, mijn zoon woont ook in Eindhoven, en na zijn studie blijven plakken. Briançon heb ik nooit van deze kant bekeken, maar wel een paar keer vanuit de straatjes. Bedankt voor de mooie kaart, en fijn dat je daar een mooie vakantie hebt gehad.
Response: Wat grappig! Ook leuk dat je Briançon een beetje kent. Graag gedaan!
