April 2021

      • This month we put our house up for sale! Our house was built in 1933. We’ve spent the past two years remodeling and redecorating this lovely house that’s been our home for 20 years. It’s a busy time here still yet and I will mainly be doing just some postcard swaps with a few crafty type 3’s until we get more settled.

About me:

I am happily married with 2 adult children and 1 very good boy. I work part-time as a caregiver for patients who need long term care at home. I am american but I have been living in the Netherlands for a long time.

The lockdown here in The Netherlands is being extended into April.

I take swapping very seriously. I will always try to do my best to create something special for you. If you have any comments or questions please message me. If I am your swap host I will always angel. Everyone deserves to be treated fairly.

I try to reuse, recycle, upcycle as much as possible. I don’t let things go to waste.

Just to let you know, Postal service is closed in Holland on Sunday’s and Monday’s. Therefore your swap might be stamped at a later date.

My supermarket sometimes runs out of international stamps which is why I must use digital stamps. This will be the letter/number code you see in the upper right hand corner of the envelope I send.

Togther with @stachel I co-host the euroswappersonly group

I love to make and decorate envelopes. Before Covid I was taking painting lessons. I also participated in several intuitive painting workshops called FLOW. These workshops and painting sessions have taught me it’s more about the process than the result. My goal for 2021 is to continue this. To give you a small impression:


Favorite Crafts

I enjoy many paper crafts. I am a atc beginner. This is something i’ve recently discovered . So much to do so little time! ♥


I quite enjoy the postcard swaps. My favorites are:

  • forest animals

  • city or country where you are from/live

  • funny, quirky

  • birds

  • butterflies

  • vintage

  • art

Christian themed items are ok with me.

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

wish list

  • Ephemera

  • Owls, foxes, woodpeckers, hummingbirds butterflies

  • stickers (no foam stickers please)

  • Stationary/briefpapier I can use/reuse little bits and pieces of paper.

  • tassels

  • tags

  • used postage stamps

  • vintage postcards, stickers , paperscraps. I love more vintage colors and themes. Please no reward or disney stickers.

  • tea

  • small homemade envelopes

  • anything forest themed, nature, flowers or butterflies.

  • washi tape (please no pink) No Disney.

I love dark colors. Rich reds, purple, browns, caramel. I often combine these colors with oker dark yellows, gold. to warm these colors more.

  • postcards new or used


I take my labrador retriever for walks everyday. I like to jog and work out. Before the pandemic I went to the gym several times a week. Now I do home pilates and bodypump. BodyPumpwithLars

UPDATE: I have not been working out.

I have a little hobby corner upstairs in our house where I like to make paper crafts and put my swaps together. I collect used stamps. I enjoy making cards, tags and envelopes. I love birds and flowers.

I sometimes watch documentaries on t.v. I mostly watch you tube craft tutorials.

Thank you for reading my profile. ♥


Comment: Thank you for the train PC & your Spring list. I agree with very much, about the part of the Ice cream places opening. Here in Pa. they opened up the middle of March. But we wait until the end of May to go to those palces.

Comment: Thank you so much, this is a special package. I love everything you've chosen and made!
Comment: Love the tulip card. What is it about men that they take thier socks off and throw them everywhere but the dirty wash basket?! My sons do this, my husband does this and it is maddening. BUT i do make them pick them up themselves. Picking and choosing battles is a smart thing to do.

Thank you so much for the amazing envie you sent me, regarding “pick me up” It was a wonderful surprise and made me smile and giggle because of the cute post cards. I will put them in a picture frame in my living room. I wanted to let you know that you are an amazing human being with a sweet soul. I am very lucky that You care so much. Big hearts are a blessing.
