May 28 2018: I have been very busy with my new job and the switching shifts that come with that. Sadly that means I'm a bit behind on rating everyone. This weekend however I will complete my check everything I have received so far and figure out which swaps I have received and rate them all. I will also add a list to my profile with things I have not received yet and contact the people Involved. Thank you all for the pretty mail and for your understanding!

ETA: I have checked all my received mail this morning and have rated everyone I have received a mail from. This weekend I will check which swaps I have not received and which I was not rated for and I will contact those involved :) thank you all for the beautiful post!

June 4 2018: Here is a list of people who Flaked on me and the Angels who came to the rescue ;)

About Me

Hi everyone, I am a 27 year old girl from Belgium, who is a big people pleaser and will send goodies, even when it's not required at the swap. I just love to share! Recently, some things have changed when it comes to postage stamps and their value. I am still figuring out what it means, but if I find a problem of any sort, I will contact the person I need to send to, to find a solution. Also I'm not always able to get to the post office on Friday before it's closed for the weekend. If I finish a swap on Friday evening, Saturday or Sunday, it will not be stamped until Monday! I'm very sorry about the possible inconvenience this causes, I just really hope you'll understand. I put a swap on "send" when I drop it in the mailbox or at the post office.

I recently worked at a company where we got some free goodies featuring a popular franchise. After sharing a lot of them with my family and friends, I am still left with So Many of them xD Because I love to share, I will add this little gadget to most of my swaps. I hope you will like them or give them to someone who will appreciate them. If you keep them yourself and if you are willing, please send me back a selfie or a polaroid picture of yourself with the gadget, with your swap bot name and your state/country. I would love to know where I have sent the gadget to and I would love to see a lot of happiness caused by them! I will not share these pictures with anyone except my boyfriend and possible future kids. Thank you in advance!

I don't flake, ever! If you haven't received anything from me, or I did something wrong, please let me know so I can make it right! I will happily resend if needed. If there is a problem, please let me know! I know I'm still a bit of a newbie, but when I have doubts about something, I will generally send you a mail and if needed, I will ask for advice from the coördinator of the swap. I will ALWAYS try to find the best solution for the both of us, to the best of my abilities.

Why I am here

I joined the site because I love writing and i've been wanting a penpall for a very long time now. I love getting happy mail in my mailbox and knowing that someone tool a bit of time out of these day to wrote to me or create something for me. I also love knowing that I put a smile on the face of someone else with what I have sent to them. I am hooked xD

I recently started a new job and financially it has been pretty heavy the last couple of weeks. I'm going to limit myself a bit more to what swaps I can or cannot do, just so I don't have to worry about the quality of the swaps. I will probably do more swaps again when I am more used to my new job.

Netflix and Books

When I'm not working or I'm just having a lazy day/moment I spend my time watching netflix series. The series I love the most right now are Victoria, The Crown, Legends of Tomorrow, Mortal Instruments, Outlander, Criminal Minds, Van Helsing and The Big Bang Theory. I'm also very into the new "Lemony Snicket's Series of unfortunate events" series on Netflix. It's so well done! My boyfriend and I recently started binge watching "Full House" together. It's so funny to see it now as an adult xD

I am a very big bookworm xD i have loved books and reading ever since I was very little and I am very proud of the collection of books I have today. When I read, i prefer Young Adult books, especially with a futuristic theme to them. Some of my favorites are Divergent (series), Hunger games (series), Shattered me (series), Selection (series),... Currently i am reading "The forever ship" and I love the series! I also love to collect childrens books for the future.

Things I love the most

The things I love most in life are cats, stickers, washi tapes, Harry Potter related things (I want it all xD stickers, washi, postcards, you name it), my netflix series and everything Disney. I am also a massively collector of DVD's and make it a challenge to get as many as possible for the least amount of money. Needless to say, I absolutely love a good bargain and finding those little treasures is half the fun xD I recently bought "The greatest Showman" and it's already one of my all time favorite films xD

I also love my amazing boyfriend, who is a total geek and has really gotten me hooked on boardgames and some computer games. The ones I currently enjoy the most are Mochi Koro, Dominion and Legends of Andor. My favorite computergames are The Sims 3, Stardew Valley, Don't Starve and Rollercoaster Tycoon. That last one truly is a game I have loved since childhood.

Another thing you need to know about me is the fact that I am a total lover for Harry Potter and everything to do with the wizard world. I am currently in a HP planner group on FB, where I am sorted into Gryffindor. I feel both like a Gryffindor and a Hufflepuff. I also fell in love with the new "Fantastic beasts and where to find them" movie and can hardly wait for the next one to come out.

My favorite disney princess of all time is Belle of Beauty and the Beast. I loved her as a little kid and I still love her now. Moana and Pocahontas are also in my top 3, but I basically love all the disney princesses, so anything from them is welcome here xD I also love the disney pixar movies, especially the ones with animals in them, like Finding Nemo/Dory, Bolt, Pets,... Basically I love everything Disney and/or pixar so anything you send me will be met with a heart!

All the crafts I enjoy

I love to draw doodles and participate in different challenges each month. Currently I try to participate in the Oh So Cute Doodles challenge, which for me is a fun way to gain more confidence in my drawing and doodling in general. I also watch video's on youtube (DoodlesBySarah is one of my favorites) and I like trying them out. I also have a pretty big collection of pinterest posts that I try out myself. Currently I am focused on making kawaii drawings as my swap cards and I try to make at least one a day on different subjects.

I love painting on canvas and giving them a twist, especially when I can re-use some of the stuff I have collected over the years. I recently made a pretty big one for a friend of mine who had a baby. The frame is now hanging at her nursery, featuring a lot of animals and the name of their little girl.

I recently started bullet journaling, which I became a really big fan of. When I first started bullet journalling I was intrigued with the different lettering techniques everyone used. After some further research I landed on a channel called "llamas love lettering", made by Cindy Guentert-Baldo, where you get a monthly challenge every day. This keeps me motivated to practice my lettering on a daily basis and really helps me improve my skills in Calligraphy and fonts. Right now I am taking a bit of a break from the bullet journaling to focus more on my job and near future.

I also love all kinds of stickers and washi tapes, a trend my boyfriend is not a big fan of, considering I already have a pretty collection after a couple of months. I however have become very fond of my washi and sticker collection and use these as a regular help in my bullet journal and with the happy mail. Any washi samples and (leftover) stickers you send me are very much appreciated! I love them all!

What's missing

If there is anything missing in my collection of stickers and washi, it would be Harry Potter related stuff. The main reason being that there isn't much to be found here in that specific franchise at a reasonable price. Being a fan is great, but I am not willing to spend a ton of money that I don't have on something just because it looks pretty online. It also takes forever for those goodies to get through Costoms here (Most of the time I don't see anything happening until a least a month has passed) so I'd rather try and come up with a creative way to make it myself. My christmas tree this year was Harry Potter style, with most stuff being handmade by myself.

I also fell in love with the munchkins from "once more with love" (on etsy), but I haven't been able to get any here in my country because of the cost. If you have any leftover munchkins that you're not using or you want to absolutely make me go bananas, they are always welcome!

I look forward to swapping lots of post/mail and making some friends all over the world. Thank you for reading! Happy swapping! Lindsey

PS: Ik spreek ook perfect Nederlands, dus als je wil mag je me ook schrijven in het Nederlands xD Bij twijfel ga ikzelf altijd kiezen voor Engels, om misverstanden te voorkomen :)
