About Me

( .)> My name is Samantha a.k.a. Sammoning.

~I'm from The Netherlands, and I'm currently 26 years old. I live in a little apartment on my own and have a job in administration for a few days a week. I live near The Efteling, a wonderful themepark and I visit it frequently!

Profile last updated on: 19-10-2018

For any Christmas card swaps I'm in: If you happen to have Christmas postcards , I would love to get one from you (sent naked/stamped/written on) wether the swap description explicitly allows it or not. I'm a postcard collector after all and the greeting cards usualy don't fit in my storage boxes and I often have to throw them away after the season :(

About Mailpeople and rating

~~~The mailpeople

Mail gets delivered here on Tuesday to Saturday.

Mail gets picked up on Monday to Friday around 5pm.

~I noticed outgoing mail usually takes longer than incoming mail from the same location.

~I mark my swaps 'sent' when I finish writing. They will usually be picked up from the mailbox on the NEXT day, since I often prepare my swaps at night.

~~~My rating pledge

~You can count on me to fulfill swaps with my best effort and before the set deadline. I will inform you if I have to send late.

~I will never leave a bad rating without contacting you first and I will rate fairly and according to the rules. It often takes me a bit longer to rate after a swap arrives, but I do try to keep it within 1 week. And if it's more I try to list the date of receiving in my rating.

~Please contact me if you think something has not arrived, or in another way not going well, so we can find a solution together.

My hobbies

~Knotting friendship bracelets And not just your average summer camp stripy ones ;)

~I am interested in Private swaps to send away knotted bracelets! Or even to make a costum one for you, in colours that you like.

This could be in exchange for just about anything; your handmade bracelets, or other crafted items, or things from my 'Likes' section, even a simple naked postcard! If you would like to make me an offer, just send me a PM!

~Collecting erasers. This just happened one day, and now I have a few boxes full!

~Reading nowadays I mostly read in English, instead of my native language Dutch. See below for genres/titles.

~I play RuneScape, a multiplayer online fantasy game. I will always have very fond memories of it. Let me know if you play(ed) it too!

About postcards

~~~General Postcard Preferences

  • Tourist-y likes: Collecting maps and flags, also interested in images of zoo's/theme parks/roller coasters/museums/touristy locations, skyline/night scenery.
  • I prefer to collect naked: stamped, written on, without envelope. The journey, the writing, they really make a card unique and collectible to me! Blanks that fit my taste usually still go in my collection though :)

~If you are sending me a blank map card in an envelope, please consider writing and adressing it like you would do if it was sent naked! Thanks a lot in advance :)

  • Zazzle postcards and the like are always welcome here! (Preferred naked)
  • Free/ad cards: only in their specific swaps, AND/OR if they fit my other interests.
  • Chunk of cardboard -style postcards (made from recycling packaging) are welcome for non-themed swaps, sender's choice swaps and the like.
  • Handmade would rather not receive, esp. not-flat ones. Unless I happen to join a handmade postcard swap, ofcourse.

  • Stamps: I do not collect them but I love seeing beautiful stamps from all over the world! I try to pass them on to collectors in other swaps.

  • About religion:Although I'm not religious, I do believe in sharing and being respectful. So if you would like to share religious texts/images, you are welcome to do so.

~~~Likes: aka The completely optional list in no particular order!

  • Maps & flags; world, country, state, city, underground, railways, parcs etc.
  • Theme parks/amusement parks, esp. rollercoasters, rides and attractions
  • London/England/UK themed
  • Black&White/Monochrome, incl. single colour accents
  • Some of my favourite animals; Rubber duckies, foxes, owls, cats/kittens, flamingo's, penguins, zebra's

I'm so glad you received the card back! Although it took quite a while :/ Anyway, it made it's way to you! :D

Your beautiful envie for the AN: September WTA arrived in today's mail and it's wonderful! The cards are perfect! One of my favorite mantras is "Be the tortoise, not the hare," and being the tortoise bears many gifts, like the ones on the postcard! Also, sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers. They have such happy faces. It's such a delight to happen on a field of them when driving along country roads. Thank you so very much!
