About Me

After 3 long years I'm back here at swap-bot!!! As you can see, 3 years ago I received a few ones, after a long time of good swapping. I can tell you a lot of reasons (not excuses!) for that, but for now the best thing to say is 'that live happened'. Three yeas later and I would like to pick up this awesome hobby again. Want to be honest and will contact the people that are suffered from my 'not sending mail'. Hope I got a change to participate in swaps again and have fun swapping again!

Hello, my name is Henny, I'm 42 years old and live in the Netherlands.

I work as a fulltime teacher with children at the age of about 10 years old and in my spare time I like to read (a lot), go hiking, write letters and travel.

I also like to work with paper, stamps, etc. and like to write long letters. I love to send and receive mail and for that reason I love it here at swap-bot!

When it's busy at work I can enjoy a good cup of tea to make me more relaxed. Especially green tea or herbal tea. Mmm :-)

Things I love...

I'm easy to please and love surprises. I'm happy to receive whatever you think I may like.

Things I absolutely love:

  • Washitape / maskingtape

  • Tea (especially green or herbal tea)

  • Socks (European size 39)

  • Cute stationary / letter sets

  • Postcards (see below for more information)

  • The colour pink!

  • Scrapbook paper

  • Rubber stamps and inkpads

  • Squirrels, turtles, owls, foxes, hedgehogs, deer

  • Gift tags

  • Vintage paper ephemera

  • Yummy things / sweets (especially candy that's not for sale in the Netherlands)

Favourite postcards...

My Postcard favourites:

  • Animals like foxes, squirrels, deer, hedgehogs, owls and turtles

  • Black and white

  • Vintage

  • Any other card you like to send to me :-)

Please don't send...

I'm not so picky, but I'm not so keen on coffee (don't drink it myself), black tea, coconut flavour and hair accessories (I have short hair).


Comment: I waited a long time to try and give you another chance and not give a 1 rating, but I never received anything, even after you said you did a resend. I see now that you have quite a few ones, so I feel like I will just never hear from you again. I hope everything is okay with you.
Comment: Sorry about the 1 ... Just never heard back from you after several attempts.... hope everything is okay, and this isnt just a flake :(

Comment: I am sorry to rate this a 1. The first package never reached me. I contacted you and you said you would resend. But the resend never reached me either. But you insisted that you had mailed it and wanted to fulfill the swap. I considered not rating because you have been such a good swapper and I really believed you mailed both packages, but now I see you received another 1 rating, so I feel it is only right (for Swap-Bot) to rate the 1. If I do ever receive your package I will rerate.
Comment: ADDED ON DEC 10, 2919: You contacted me on Sep 16, 2019 to resolve this old swap and we agreed about a re-send and you wrote you'll send it soon. Your last login was Sep 28, 2019 and almost 3 months after your PM I still haven't received anything. Disappointing again. ORIGINAL RATING FROM JUNE 11, 2016: I'm sorry to rate you a 1, but I still haven't received anything from you. On Apr 11 you promised me to make an April journal as the first one seems to be lost in the mail. You wanted to send in the beginning of May. I wrote you a message on June 3 which is still unread. Mail from the Netherlands to Germany is normally less than 1 week so the re-send should have arrived already. I will re-rate when I receive the original swap or the re-send.

Comment: Hi Henny! TY for the awesome polar bear pc! I have only seen them at the zoo as well but aren't they amazing looking? The one on your pc looks like he might be sniffing some dinner or enjoying the sun shine! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Thank you very much for the rating and the heart! I think the polar bear was enjoying the sun, at least I would do if I was a polar bear :-) Happy swapping!
