I am Chantalle de Heer, a 29-year-old girl from the Netherlands. I graduated as an Entrepreneurship & Retail Management student and currently I am working in e-mail marketing. Next to that, I have my own stationery brand Around the world stationery. My dream is to grow this into a big business that sells many stationery products, featuring artists from around the world.
My hobbies include going to the gym (weight training), shopping, Postcrossing and collecting beautiful postcards, travel journaling, reading, watching movies and television series, travelling, and spending time with my boyfriend.
I have been Postcrossing for 12+ years. I am active in multiple Dutch Facebook groups for swapping postcards. I also do a lot of personal swaps on my Instagram @buzzygirl93 I adore beautiful envelopes, stamps and cute decorations. I love decorating postcards and making people happy to receive them.
There are many types of postcards that I like, but there are some brands and illustrators that I love:
LouPaper, Sanrio (Hello Kitty), Justine Art studio, Geetika Mayar, Timi of Sweden, Bulan's Studio, Elaine Chiu, Zintenz (Claire van Heukelom), Live Life Happy, Blond Amsterdam, Lemon Bird, Medley, Edition Gollong (Mila Marquis), Dille & Kamille, Susan Wheeler, Hopperdietzel, Günter Hildebrandt, Daddy Long Legs.
I also love postcards with illustrations of black&white cats, beaches, sea-themed, lavender, France, Italy, Russia, Philippines, skiing, pastel colours and glitters. Also really love shaped postcards (other than regular A6 size). But really anything that is cute is welcome ♥ I am crazy about postcards made with beautiful paper as well, including natural look papers (made from plants, flowers).
I also really love vintage postcards (real vintage, not fake). I especially love collecting images of women, Marilyn Monroe, rivers, fountains, lakes or anything with water.
I like receiving/sending and decorating postcards and advent calendars. I really love illustrations, so I like collecting postcards with cute illustrations and beautifully illustrated papers. I love illustrations like the ones you can find in my moodboard.
I also enjoy Chain Cards, I am also hosting a monthly swap with travelling postcards with stickers (every receiver adds 1 sticker to your postcard until it is filled up). If you are adding a sticker for me I would love anything cute, colourful, shiny... ♥ if the sticker matches the postcard that would be really cool as well.
I love all sorts of tea, except for some teas with berries that are too sour. I mostly love the packaging, I collect the tea packages in my tea journal. So any type of tea with beautiful packaging is very welcome ^.^ I love collecting holiday-themed tea, especially Christmas. It would also be great if the tea is soy lecithin free or organic. But this is not necessary.
I also love trying out snacks from other countries. Anything chocolate is always welcome. I also love to try salty snacks from around the world. Any snacks that are holiday-themed are especially awesome!
Let me know if you are interested in doing a personal swap.
