About Me

Hello! Hallo! Hoi! Hey! Hej!

My name is Ciska. I am a working mom who loves to connect and be creative. Together with my partner, our son (2017) and our three chicken I live in the Netherlands, close to the Belgium and German border. We love to grow our own vegetables and create a garden full of wild life.

In my me-time I love to play with paper and to send and receive happy mail and Mail art. Finding a decorated envelope in my mailbox always makes my day 💌.

I love...

  • color, paper, nice designs and patterns, note cards, washi tape, stickers, rubber stamps, address labels, handmade envelopes and inspiring quotes.

  • flowers, animals, houses, bikes, teapots and cups, retro, stars, love, sun, and most of all simplicity.

  • herbal and green tea

  • your mail art. Your expression of creativity is so inspiring!

  • to get to know you. Where are you from? What keeps you busy? Things that are typical for where you live. ...


  • Apples and other fruit
  • Bird (songs)
  • Colorful
  • Diecuts & doodles
  • Envelopes (handmade)
  • Flowers & frogs
  • Garden
  • Home
  • Inspiration & Ideas
  • Joy
  • Kindness
  • Love
  • Mail art
  • Note (cards) - a note from you 💜
  • Ocean
  • People
  • Quotes
  • Rubber stamps
  • Smell of fresh bread, coffee, etc
  • Tea (pots & cups)
  • Universe
  • Vacation
  • Washi tape
  • Xxx
  • Your creativity
  • Zen


Swapbot is for me a way to connect to like minded people, to share mail art and to get inspired.

I will rate you a five ❤️ when swap requirements are met. Finding a decorated envelope in my mailbox makes me happy. I love to receive a note with a swap. Please do not send extras that increase your shippings costs. It is the swap that matters, not the extras. Happy swapping!

Dank je wel voor je lieve ansichtkaart! Wat een leuke verrassing! Nieuwe dingen zijn altijd spannend... of het nou een operatie of een nieuwe craft is :D veel succes en misschien zie ik de resultaten nog eens ^^

Thank you for the lovely OMAE May RAK. Two houses fell through, but the third I think is the charm. I had a great inspection, so I'm slowly moving through the process. I'm holding up in all this pandemic stuff, just had my first Covid test which thankfully was negative. Until then, I'm going to keep soldiering on. Hope you're well! :)

Many thanks for your handmade envelope with different flower papers and your lovely handwritten letter. It was so nice to hear from you!

Singske on Jun 5, 2020:

Hey Ciska, vandaag je leuke briefje ontvangen voor de omae rak attack may, super lief dat je weer aan mij hebt gedacht. Hier in België gaan de bars en restaurant vanaf maandag open. Ik kijk zo uit naar dat eerste terrasje maar nu wil het weer even niet mee...🥴. Aan de andere kant een malse regenbui kunnen we ook weer goed gebruiken na die droogte. Ik schrijf je snel een briefje terug. Geniet van je weekend en tot schrijfs♥️
