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

Comment: Mystery Tower sounds a lot like our Guardians of the Galaxy Mission Break Out ride at Disney California Adventure, it's a drop ride also. It used to be Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and it was so scary, I'd ride it only once a year. I love the redesigned Guardians ride though, it's a lot milder and has a killer soundtrack.
Comment: Thank you for a beautiful card that's just right for the season.
