About Me

My name is Sofia and I live in Belgium. Belgium is famous for his chocolate, beer, Atonium and 'manneke pis'.

I started penpalling again a year ago and discovered Postcrossing and Swap-bot. I like my mailbox to be filled with snail mail instead of bills :) I lost my voice cause to CFS since more than a year so this is a nice way to keep in touch with the world ;) My world is getting smaller and smaller but the world around me is getting closer and closer thanks to letters and snail mail :)

UPDATE : 15 febr 2018

Please don't give me a bad rating without making contact. Mail can take more than 4 weeks to arrive. Mail put in the mailbox after a friday 10am will only leave on monday. So the date on the stamp can be a few days later than the day I've sent it. When you didn't receive my swap after 6 weeks I will be happy to resent. I love the get my swaps but I also love to make them and to find stuff I think my partner will like. So I always sent my swaps !

UPDATE : 2 febr 2018

I was late in sending the "Happy Valentine mini plip book" because my partner JoannHernandez had a blank profile and hasn't been online since she registrated on swap bot. She also didn't send her swap so I contacted the coordinator and asked her if I could sent my swap to JoannHernandez partner instead of her. I received the answer with my new partners address on 2 febr so my swap was sent on 2feb instead of 31jan.

Favorite Music

I like all kind of music except country and hard rock. The music I listen to depends on the mood I'm in. I like latin music in summer and chill music in winter :)

Favorite Books

My favorite author is John Grisham and some Belgian authors like Aspe and Deflo. I like to read detective, thrillers and also romantic stuff. I read most books during summer when I can sit outside in the garden.

Favorite Crafts

I loved hinking, swimming, jogging and being outside. Now I do cross stitch, sewing, crochet, knitting, reading, coloring, 3d card making and many many more.

Thank you so much for your great "A is for Africa" ATC. I picked Africa for my country as well & the same reasons--it's on my bucket list of places to visit. Tigers are my favorite animal, so thank you for the background paper. I appreciate the goodies included, too. Crafty & creative card!

Op deze manier antwoorden is prima, het is maar wat je verkiest :-) Ik zag je naam ergens in een swap voorbij komen. De kans dat hier een Belgje achter zat was wel erg groot en dus kwam ik even piepen. Ik ben via hier op Postcrossing terecht gekomen. Mag ik je vragen waar jij je kaartjes haalt? Vind het best moeilijk soms. Groetjes

We zijn hier niet met zo velen, dus Welkom lieve mede-Belg-swapbotter ;)
