About Me

My name is Mieke. I'm a 56 years old and living in Rotterdam (Netherlands). I'm married and have 2 childeren. I have a job at a school as 'timetable administrator'. I'm often busy with my crafts and making swaps. Also I like to cycle and nordic walking in my surrounding. 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.

You will make me very happy with delipaper!

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

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 collect

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

Stuff you can send to me

  • Delipaper. If you have delipaper in house, please send me some.
  • Circus items.
  • Alice-in-wonderland items.
  • Old winnie-the-Pooh items.
  • Black and white vintage photos or color photos.
  • Paper, vintage ephemera.
  • Old pieces of wallpaper
  • Old bus/train/metro tickets.
  • Old handwriting.
  • Vintage cards/postcards.
  • Stickers, rub ons.
  • Handmade things (atc, postcards, books, mailart).
  • Stationary.
  • Magnets.
  • Little metal things.
  • All sort of mixed media items.
  • And i love 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.

I like nice looking postal stamps, not those postoffice printouts.


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.
  • Goldmanchen-tee, medi-terranee provence.

I don't like:

  • Rooibos tea (translation bushtea, 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.

I don’t like:

  • Things with a parfume or other smell. Parfum is so personal.
  • Don’t send me (old) bookpages and washi tape. I have enough of it.


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'.

If you don't receive a swap

Please contact me before rating me. If you don't get anything from me, please send me a message and I wil re-send the swap to you. Mail could have gone lost in the post.

Comment: Wauw Mieke, wat een prachtig boekje heb je gemaakt. Ik ben heel wat "braver" begonnen ;-) Ik moet nog heel veel leren, maar dat is ook het leuke aan dit soort projecten. Vandaar dat ik de Teamworkkaarten ook zo leuk vind. Goed dat je er weer bent!
Response: Hoi José, dank je. Het is wat ruig geworden, maar ik vond het wel geslaagd. Groetjes Mieke

Comment: Dank voor je gezellige envelop Mieke! Ik ben inderdaad wat minder op SB door drukte in mijn privé-leven; alles is nogal enerverend en dan heb ik liever niet teveel (zelf-opgelegde) deadlines. Gelukkig is er voor de teamwork pc's altijd voldoende tijd... mits de inspiratie komt! LOL
Response: Sterkte ermee. Die inspiratie, daar heb ik ook wel eens last van ;-) haha.
