About Me

Please PM me before you rate me. If you don't receive from me let me know, then i'll resent. I always sent my package or postcard on the first or second day when received partners. And otherwise always before deadline.

When i drop my mail in the mailbox on fridayevening, saturday's and sundays (when swapdeadline is then) my mail will only be picked up from that box not earlier then monday evening. They are not working in the weekends. Thanks so much for your understanding

Hi All, I'm Carolien, a 38-year-old girl from the Netherlands.I live together with my boyfriend in the south of the Netherlands in a beautiful town. I found Swap-Bot through postcrossing and i was curious so i signed up. I started doing postcard swaps and i also do other swaps regularly. I'm collecting postcards since 13 years now. I also love to write letters. I already have several penpals which i love writing with.

I am a magnet addict! :) Now i start swapping here on swapbot too! :) I already have a big collection and still search for more.

And ofcourse a postcard addict!! It's so much fun to sent postcards and stuff to make people happy. And finding nice mail in my mailbox after a hard day of work. Or just a bad day. It always cheers me up! I am looking forward swapping with you all!

Work: In a second hand items shop! :)

In my free time i would love to go do nice things with my friends and boyfriend. Sightseeing such as shopping , zoo, cinema, going out to dinner etc.

Postcards Wishlist

For me, the back of the postcard is as important as the front! Please tell me something about yourself, your country, your interests, or random thoughts, recipes, everything will be appreciated! If you don't know what to write, you could tell me: - how you spent your day - your favourite things (film, book, music...) and why - your dreams (travel the world, become an astronaut...) I prefer cards sent naked with a beautiful stamp on it unless the swap says to sent it in an envelope. I would especially love to receive (in no particular order):

Touristy world postcard tag.

Thank you for the postcard. It is a great postcard of your royal family. The 3 girls are adorable. Shirley

Hey! I love all your profile graphics, they are so sparkly. I also came to Swap Bot from Postcrossing. I also love kawaii stuff...and work in a second hand store for buying and selling books. We seem to have a lot in common! :D

Happy sending <3

Quick Friendly Profile Comment:

Hi there! While reading through your profile I saw that you are from the Netherlands, which I think is just awesome. I'm from the US and have barely traveled outside of my state, much less the country, so I enjoy speaking with others from across the globe. I also read that you are into planner items! I am as well, but I have the happy planner! I found a website where you can find a ton of free printables for your planner - maybe some of them would work in your planner? You could check out cutedaisy.com to see if they have anything that would work for you. I print their stuff out and use a glue stick to paste in my planner. Lastly, I think it's cool that you cool that you collect post cards, I've always wanted to collect them but I can't even find them around where I live.. How unfortunate! Anywho, I enjoyed checking out your profile! Looks like we have a few similar interests! (:

Welcome to Inspiration Station!

I find it pretty neat that I got you for the "Quick & Friendly profile comment" swap. Its rare to find another "The Rasmus" fan! I absolutely love this group! We also seem to have similar tastes in Movies! I always say I like Comedies and Horror/Thrillers...not too much of in between! It so neat how the internet really does make everything a small world!

Welcome to the electronic swaps group! I hope you'll have fun joining the swaps and visiting the forum ♥ Groetjes :D
