About Me

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

~I'm from The Netherlands, and I'm currently 25 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: 03-06-2018

~ My profile now includes a section about private bracelet swapping (My hobbies) have a look if you're interested in one :)

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 deadline. I will inform you in the rare case of sending late.

~I will never leave a bad rating without contacting you first and I will rate fairly and according to the rules (but not always on the day I receive, because life.)

~Please contact me if you feel something isn't 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 cards: 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. 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!

  • 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. non-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: I'm not religious, but I do believe in sharing and being respectful. So if you would like to share religious texts/images, you are free to do so.

Comment: I love it! Thanks so much for the Frog and Friends postcard! I love that you colored it! And it is perfectly acceptable. I have a few coloring cards left from an Alice in Wonderland set that I've also sent out for the swaps.
Comment: Hello Samantha! Wow, are these cards ever PERFECT for me! Kitties, birds, a fox! Everything I love, and then some. Thank you so much for resending; who knows where lost mail goes? Probably the same place socks go! Love that kitty note paper--really cute. Thanks so much

CindyST rated for PTG: Famous Person PC on Jun 11, 2018
Comment: Thank you for the postcard. Somewhere along the line the stamp fell off :)
Response: Ooh that's bad, glad it still arrived. I know I'm not buying this card again haha.
Comment: Love it! Thank you 📬 ♪♫*¨*•.¸¸❤
Response: Glad to hear it, thanks for the hearts! :)
Comment: Thanks for this cute "kitty cat!" Those were my daughter's first words but it sounded more like: Key-ka. As an adult now, she has 3 of her own and I'm certain she'll always have at least 1. I also like that it is from a Dutch book and not one from USA--I know those rather well, so love getting something from other nations. Thanks and happy swapping!
Response: That sounds adorable, glad the card (and the kitties) found such a warm home :)

Comment: Thank you for the nice map PC. :-)
Comment: Thank you for the interesting card. I never thought about using a book cover like that. It made it okay. A little bent and marked on from the sorting machine but it just made it look like the book was loved and read more than once
Response: It probably was loved for many years and now it still is but as a postcard :) Thanks for your reaction!
uiltje rated for NS: Kaartje van de Hema - juni on Jun 6, 2018
Comment: Dank je wel voor je Hema kaartje. Ik heb mijn kaartje zojuist gekocht en gaat, net op tijd, op de bus. Leuk om te zien dat diverse vestigingen een ander assortiment hebben. Deze had ik hier niet gezien. Ik zag vandaag in een andere groep die té schattige postzegel van Nijntje. Zijn die gewoon van PostNL, of verkrijgbaar bij de Bruna? Volgens mij maak je daar in het buitenland ook erg veel mensen blij mee.
Response: De Nijntje postzegel heb ik online bij PostNL besteld, maar misschien zijn ze ook bij bruna verkrijgbaar, die hebben meestal wel postzegels volgens mij.

Comment: Thank you! That looks like a scary ride. I can not do the upside down it is terrifying!
Response: That's very understandable, for me it's usually the heights. Thank you for your reply!

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!

Tinker60 on Aug 17, 2016:

Thank you so much for the great PCs you sent me in the PTG WTA for July -- they are all great! The tulips an waterfall ones are so pretty, and the Atomium is so interesting. . . and thanks too for the extra of Leo :-) I hope you'll join the WTA for August that is up in the group's forum. . . it's always more fun when we get lots of players!

Fullsteampowell on Aug 12, 2016:

Thank you for the extra Roulette postcard! I feel the same way about SwapBot as a social comfort, and it's nice to know I'm not alone. It's been a rough year for me, but sharing treats makes me feel better.
