About Me

Hi! My name is Katja and I'm an 19-year-old industrial design student from the Netherlands. I really enjoy being creative and exchanging mail with people from all over the world :)

My biggest hobby is travelling. I absolutely love exploring new places, meeting new people, and learning about other cultures. My other hobbies include photography, bouldering (which is a form of climbing), playing the piano, hanging out with friends, reading, cooking, playing board & card games, being creative, and spending time outside and in nature (either hiking, cycling, on a longboard, canoe or stand-up paddle board).

Favorite Crafts

As for creative stuff, I enjoy doing lots of things. For example, scrapbooking, penpalling, watercolor painting, sketching, zentangle, making cards, envelopes & zines, handlettering, keeping a travel journal, etc.

I have tried and enjoyed making quite some different crafts so far, including ATC's, snailmail, inchies, pocket letters & mail art.


Kind of goodies I like to receive:

  • washi tape
  • stickers
  • tags
  • die-cuts
  • clear stamps
  • watercolor paint
  • wax seal stamps
  • embellishments
  • envelopes
  • fun shaped paperclips
  • handmade things

I especially like these things if they have one of the following themes: travel, summer, plants, woodland, elephants, cats, nature, sunset & galaxy. But I'm happy with anything I receive :)

Book recommendations, recipes (vegetarian), uncommon facts about your country, and words/sentences in your language with translations are always welcome and would be really appreciated!


  • Colours: teal/aqua/turquoise and pastels
  • Animals: elephants & cats (also have a cat, named Elmo)
  • Season: summer
  • Tea: rooibos & earl grey
  • Plant: monstera
  • Chocolate: white & milk
  • Places: the beach & lakes surrounded by mountains
  • Music: 80s

I also love to receive postcards from the place you live/a place you have visited with some information about the place written on the back! I prefer postcards sent naked, but wouldn't mind if you sent them in an envelope.


Things I'd rather not receive: anything related to religion or politics, and kiddie themed stuff (like dora & frozen). I also have no use for ribbons, sticky notes, and reward & alphabet stickers. I don't drink coffee, and for tea, I don't really like mint & fruit. Lastly, I can't stand the smell of cigarettes.

Comment: Youre very organized! I always wondered how ppl used those alcohol markers. Happy Holidays!
Response: Thank you! For me they work great as backgrounds because they blend together so well. Happy holidays to you too!

Comment: I'm jealous of how neatly organised your supplies are! I even just throw all my alcohol markers in a big box haha. The washi storage in a cutlery drawer Insert is a great idea!
Response: Haha yeah I used to do that too, but noticed that I use them a lot more since they are neatly organized! And it works amazing, so would definitely recommend it!

Comment: Thank you for joining my swap and for the adorable pics of Elmo and DJ! I love the one where Elmo is checking out the world outside your window and drinking from the glass. Does his face every get stuck in the glass?
Response: Thank you for hosting the swap! And surprisingly not, I don't know how he does it...
spacefoxsupreme rated for Silly Pet Pics #2 on Nov 10, 2022
Comment: Aww, give Elmo some cuddles from me! We also adopted our Mister when he was already an adult cat and it was so worth it, I would always adopt an older cat again and see how they still develop and become less anxious!
Response: I will! And that's great, it's amazing to give an older cat a better life, especially since they often spend a lot of time in adoption centers
Comment: Hello Katja, thank you very much for a beautiful PL, I can't wait to open it ^_^
Response: You're welcome! I'm glad you like it, hope you'll like all of the little presents too :)
Comment: Dankjewel voor de leuke stickers. Ik ga je kaart doorsturen in de volgende ronde 😊
Response: Graag gedaan, en dankjewel!
Comment: Thank you!
Response: You're welcome!
