About Me

You will make me very happy with delipaper!

If I am your sender, try to avoid my Instagram as I keep posting there what I do for swapbot.

My name is Mieke. I'm a 52 years old and living in Rotterdam (Netherlands). I'm married and have 2 childeren, a boy of 16 years old and a girl of 21 years old.

I have a job at a school as 'timetable administrator'. Furthermore I take care of the children, our household and myself ;-). I'm often busy with my crafts and making swaps. Also I like to cycle and nordic walking in my surrounding for physical movement. I really like to make swaps. It's great fun when I return home and a pretty envelope on the doormat is waiting at my home coming.

Favorite Crafts

I had in the past several hobbies, such as lacemaking, quilting, embroidery and textile art. At the moment I really like to play with paper and paint and create for example a art journal, collages, mailart, handmade books. I love mixed media. Somethimes I make also my own stamps. I followed several e-courses from Mary Ann Moss, Jane Davenport and Roben-Marie Smith.

I like to do:

  • Swaps and mailart.
  • Playing with paper and paint in my art journal.
  • Making handmade books
  • Making (micro) photographs from flowers and insects in my garden.
  • Drinking coffee by Kaldi with my mother.
  • Drinking tea.
  • Eating with friends.
  • Walking and bicycle in the nature.

I don't like to do:

  • Walking in the snow.
  • Watch scary and war movies.
  • Smoking.

I collect

  • Some themes I like are: Alice in wonderland, Circus, Winnie-the-Pooh (not the Disney-kind, bit the older ones).
  • Old black and white vintage photos.
  • Old bus/train/theater tickets.
  • Different types of ephemera paper (e.g. old handwriting, handwritten notes, old postcards, old advertisment cards, old happy birthday/cristmas cards)
  • Movie pictures.
  • Vintage magazines, wrapping paper, old games items.

Stuff you can send to me

  • Delipaper. If you have delipaper in house, please send me some.
  • Black and white vintage photos or color photos.
  • Paper, vintage ephemera, daily used (new) ephemera.
  • Old pieces of wallpaper
  • Old bus/train/metro tickets.
  • Old handwriting.
  • Game items, fake money, scrabble pieces, jigsaw pieces, little plastic dolls (not bigger dan 1 inch).
  • Vintage cards/postcards.
  • Used stamps.
  • Die cuts.
  • Handmade paper.
  • Masking tape.
  • Tissue paper, napkins, serviettes.
  • Stickers, rub ons.
  • Handmade things (atc, postcards, books, mailart).
  • Smashbook or scrapbook supplies.
  • Stationary.
  • Magnets.
  • Little metal things.
  • All sort of mixed media items.
  • And i love also surprises.

I like the colour combinations turquoise, (lime)green, red and purple or turquoise with orange/ grey. But I like all the colors actually. Lots of color combinations (6 or more) together I don't like so much, it is to busy for me.

I like nice looking postal stamps, not those postoffice printouts. And if possible, please don't use the round USA forever stamps.


White or green tea are my favourites with a fruit flavor. And i like spicy tea. I love to experiment with tea.

I like the next tea very much:

  • LOV Organic tea.
  • Nordqvist Valkoinen (flavoured white tea).
  • Elephant, Mandarine Croseille.
  • Goldmännchen-tee, medi-terranée provence.

I don't like:

  • Rooibos tea (translation bush‐tea, redbush tea, red tea, South African red tea).
  • Tea with ginger or gingerbread.


While I would totally be grateful for anything you send to me, these are the things I would have to pass on to others:

  • Religious.
  • Scary, vampire, zombie, war, Hello Kitty, Disney, kawaii.
  • Things with a parfume or other smell.
  • And please don't send me things with GLITTER or SAND (I throw them away).


I rarely read books, usually only during a vacation. When I read books, then it is often detectives.

I read sometimes magazines, for instance ArtJournaling or the Flow. And I read the dutch newspaper 'Algemeen Dagblad'.

I almost never listen to music, but I listen a lot to the Dutch radio.

Comment: Dank je wel vanuit "het verre Capelle a/d IJssel" voor je gezellige envelop met Franse items. Ik moet wel even in mijn geheugen graven voor de herinneringen, maar wij zijn met de kinderen daar ook wel eens geweest. Frankrijk is een aantal jaar een geweldige bestemming geweest met de vouwwagen. Ik had wel even moeite met het ontcijferen van je zelfportret, maar hij is leuk! En ik reken me helemaal rijk met de aandelen ;-)
Response: Fijn dat je de envelop goed heb ontvangen, na zo'n lange reis ;-). Ook wij zijn dit jaar met de vouwwagen gegaan. Voor wat het zelfportret betreft, ik was me wat aan het vervelen en moest even wat tijd overbruggen en heb allemaal gekke foto's genomen en in een app op de telefoon bewerkt. Bedankt voor het hartje.
Comment: Got the postcard and will send it off next round. : ) And thank you so much for my extra happy!! So thoughtful, thank you.
Response: Your welcome!. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Mieke!! It is here! I lOOOVe this so much!! Beautiful remembrance of the circus!! Thank you so much!!! ♥♥ Edited 09/14/2017: Dear Mieke, I just received your original envie. It is beautiful too!!! Thank you so much!
Response: Hi, glad you received it finaly. Thanks for the heart. (I am afraid you received a second one, because you don't received this one so far. ;-)
Comment: Thank you.
Response: Thank you for the rating.

Dankjewel voor je RAK van het Art journaling magazine! Moet eerst wat vervelende klussen doen en daarna ga ik er lekker mee op de bank zitten :D Ik hoop dat je mijn ruilpakketje net zo leuk vindt; komt donderdag als het goed is want dinsdag na de buslichting gepost. (Kon geen brievenbus vinden in de Zeister bossen ;)
