About Me

Hello everyone!

My name is Linda, I'm 31, living in the Netherlands. I work in a nursing home as a volunteer, and I love it!!!

Things I love: postcards, crafting, reading, having fun with friends, shopping (and spending too much money), dreaming, writing, penpalling, art journalling...

Postcards and stamps

I love sending and receiving postcards! I've been a postcrossing member for over 2 years now... still love it :) Cards I love most:

*ballet *Correspondances / Blue Art / Cartes d'Art / La Marelle en Papier (card publishers) *Silke Leffler *Geertje van der Zijpp *Nicoletta Cecolli *Mark Ryden *Lorri McFaul *GorJuss / Santoro *Jetoy *hearts *Papaya Art *Nouvelles Images (children, multiples, black&white, ballet...) *Signature *Fiep Westendorp *Hello Kitty *fairies *Lali Riddle *guinea pigs *Anne Geddes *Children of different cultures (no paintings please) *anything sweet/cute/kawaii ... especially illustrations *erotic cards of women

I prefer my cards written :) You can see my collections here: https://picasaweb.google.com/115309267804883875131

I also love (used) postage stamps, especially kawaii, Japanese/geisha, famous people, butterflies, birds...

Things I'd love to receive

*stickers (kawaii, vintage, fairies, cute)

*rubber or clear stamps (background, quotes, poems, mail related, travel related, fairies, Tim Holtz, GorJuss)

*mail art supplies

*anything I can use for art journalling

*papercraft stuff (tags, labels, ribbons, masking tape ,washi tape, paper, brads, lace etc)

*ephemera - anything... pages from dicitionaries, traintickets, old photographs... you name it... I can use it...


*FBs.... years ago I used to have a lot of FBs travelling around, now I don't anymore, but I want to get started again :)


*cute pairs of socks (size 38)

*undies (size M)

*ATCs and anything I can use for creating ATCs

*Anything Tim Holtz

*tea (I'm an addict)


*viewcards,map, animal, buildings or nature cards

*anything religious, Disney or too childish (although I love Hello Kitty)

Sending & receiving

I will always send before the deadline!! So if you don't receive something from me... please send me a message before rating. It could be your package got lost in the mail...

If you receive my swap, please give me a rating, I will do the same as soon as I receive yours :)

Favorite Crafts

I love anything creative... :) Mailart; decorating envelopes, labels, postcards, art journal, Round Robin Notebooks, ATCs, letters... anything you can think of!

I use stamps, paint, stencils, all kinds of paper, ribbons, (masking) tape, stickers, labels... My motto is: don't throw anything away... you never know when you can use it!

Favorite Music

I love popmusic! I've been a HUGE Ace of Base fan since 1993... and I still am. For those of you wondering if they still exist: they do! I also love Maria Mena, her music and lyrics touch me... it's like she writes about me... Others: Solid HarmoniE, Spice Girls, Girls Aloud, Cheryl Cole, Ilse DeLange, Jessie J, Pink..
