My name is Maartje, I'm an 26 year old girl from The Netherlands. I live in a small village.I am a braun belt in Jui Jitsu (self-defence). Play a lot of Denda computer games. I collect to many stuff.. stamps, teapots, Elfquest comic books, paper wrappings from oranges, things with cats on them (small figurines, cards etc. ).
BIG News: I adopted a shelter cat :). Her name is Aletta a beautiful female from only 2 years old. She is a very playfull little cat and LOVES toys with feathers and little balls. She also likes to scratch the couch (to get me crazy) and drags wildlife into me home (alive) from birds to grasshoppers and butterflies :(. She hates collors... Anyway do you want to know anything else just ask
I'm also a postcrosser but since I found swap-bot I don't do that anymore. It always makes my happy to find something in the mailbox.
NOTE: The dutch postal service is just a mess lately. I don't like it. Hopefully everything will get where it's supose to, but I'm worried a bit. It might take longer then usual. I'm happy to resend if it just takes to long to get to you. I always send, always!
PLEASE READ: Somethimes I participate in mutiple swaps that are quite alike. Please write the swap name correctly somewhere (you can re-use a small piece of paper, just keep it easy). So I can rate you. I like getting rated and a asume others like it also. It's bugs me when I get something that I know is from swap-bot but I can't find the swap with that partner anywhere.
YOU ARE AN TRUE ANGEL: @Faeorain (angeled me for the 9 7 5 3 1 scaventure hunt swap) and the envie just is fantastic
