Hi there! I’m Robyn

Postal service is closed in Holland on Sunday’s and Monday’s. Therefore your swap might be stamped at a later date.

Favorite Crafts

I’ve just started cardmaking. I paint. Since this crazy Corona time I am working on an art journal. I took intuitive painting lessons for the second time this past January. I probably watch too much You Tube tutorials but I want to try new things to find my own style. I have just started swapping. I read the profiles and try to figure out what the other person would like. It’s so much fun and it keeps me thinking of someone else while I’m making it and I send up a few prayers for my swap partner and hope that my swap will cheer them up because I thought good things about them that day. :)

just a note about me...

I have always enjoyed writing letters and I am quite disciplined about it. I am originally from California but I moved to Holland a long time ago. My mom passed away awhile back and she was my last tie with America. During the corona lockdown I started making cards. I send cards to nursing homes, hospitals or just to people who ask. Sometimes a little note can make people feel better.

I work with long care patients who prefer and can stay at home. I am married, I have two grown children who go to college, they are still living at home. I love to take long walks in the forest my brown labradour. I work out and jog. I love flowers. I love vintage postcards stamps or stickers. I love tea. Tiny Bracelets. I love poems. You can always send me anything that you have made or written yourself. I love to read the Psalms. I have traveled alot. Guernsey and Tuscany are my top favorites but oh how I love New York! I guess I should write down what I don’t like but really I think in these times to just appreciate and be thankful for what I have or receive is best. alt tekst


I am always looking for new dinners for my family. Should you have a family favorite feel free to send me the recipe. I love to bake as well. alt text

random items

I am adding more to my profile because some swaps ask for more detailed information. I like pretty scraps of paper. I make my own envelopes. My favorite craft to send are pocket letters. I don’t know why it took me so long to go back to paper crafting. There are so many ideas on you tube to try out!! My only problem is, where am I going to find the time?

I love ephemera, postcards, notecards,bookmarks, stickers, bits of this and that, vintage things. Flowers, butterflies, old stamps, labels and tags. My favorite colors are red, orange brown, yellow dark green, and yes some black!

Please no Disney.


I love tea. The only kind I do not care for is rooibos and licorice.
