About Me

Hi, my name is Marleen, nurse, health scientist, worked and lived in several parts of Africa and Asia. Currently, working as a social health nurse for youth in Amsterdam. I have two sons, born June 2014 and January 2017. I very much enjoy being a mom!

I'm looking forward to meet people here and swap all kinds of postcards, postage stamps, and craft items.

I love: meeting friends, scuba diving, postcrossing, hunting antiques, traveling, baking, stamp collecting.

I enjoy good mail days and love sending beautiful mail into the world.

If possible, please use real stamps on the swap you send to me, as a collector and stamp swapper I love to see stamps on my envelop. Please use Christmas stamps on your swap to me if your country issues Christmas stamps.

Paperarts/Postcards

There are many themes I adore like:

  • teacups, teapots,
  • coffee,
  • birds (love owls and puffins), birdhouses, birdnests, illustrations are also welcome,
  • marine life, fishes,
  • Frida Kahlo, women in art,
  • children book's illustrations,
  • beautiful illustrations by Kaj Stenvall, Beatrix Potter, Mark Ryden, Jetoy, Papaya, the black apple, belle and boo, Hide n Seek

If the swap allows the postcard to be send in an envelope, you may send my card in an envelope. It´s not a must, naked (written and stamped) cards are also very welcome.

Postage stamps

I love beautiful postage stamps. I collect stamps of the following themes:

  • turtles,
  • all other sea creatures, fishes etc,
  • birds (love owls and puffins),
  • hedgehogs,
  • Beatrix Potter,
  • children books illustrations,
  • fairy tales,
  • fruit and berries,
  • roses,
  • lighthouses,
  • Folklore,
  • beach-related like shells or palmtrees,
  • Art stamps,
  • map of country stamps,

-Year of the horse, year of the monke, year of the goat stamps, - JAPAN; International Week of Letter Writing stamps. -

Favorite Crafts

Recently, I have started to create ATCs/ROLOs. I very much enjoy making these little artworks. I haven't been involved in many swaps yet, but I hope to do soon. I would love to receive: - buttons - ribbons - embellishments - baking twine - collage sheets - rubber stamps - stickers - small enveloppes - collage sheets - washi tape - ephemera - wooden scrabble tiles - all kinds of paper, cut-outs from magazines, old maps, all what I can use for mail art or art journaling.

On my flickr account you can see my ATC creations and swaps.

Colors

My favourites colors are :

  • red
  • green
  • pink
  • blue
  • blue/white dotted
  • black/white dotted
  • red/white dotted
  • floral motives/designs
  • colorful motives with birds

Tea

I enjoy tea. I especially like spiced tea's and green tea's. The green tea may have a fruit flavour. I would love to try eggnog tea. I would rather not receive any black tea with a fruit flavour e.g. orange, strawberry, blueberry (except cranberry tea) and chacomile tea. Please only tea which is in a wrap. No loose tea.

Hobbies

I love to combine scuba diving and traveling. I also love to go hunting for antiques. I love to visit flea markets, thrift stores, charity shops and car boots in The Netherlands, UK, Belgium, France and Germany.

Comment: Thank you for the wonderful Alice PC! I love seeing all the different illustrations of Alice that are out there. I have to admit, I do like Tenniel's the best. It's hard to beat those classic illustrations. :)
