About Me


BIG THANKS : To all of you for sending me some happy mail in coronatime. ❤❤❤

Mail is possible again. But be patient, it can take some time to reach you

07/11/20 : for now I will be doing European swaps only.

9/02/20 : Slowly I want to start sending international again because I miss it too much. The last time I tried it could take up to 2 months to travel overseas and that made me a little nervous... scared mail would get lost. I hope it is getting better by now. So if you are my partner, be patient and contact me if you didn’t receive.

STAY SAFE in this crazy times 😷🙏❤

I promise to rate as soon your swap drops into my mailbox. I would like you to do the same. That’s how I know you received my swap.

I will do my best to send my swaps on time. If not I will contact you.

If you did not receive my swap by accident please contact me.

So lets have some fun swapping💌

HANDMADE POSTCARD : If you think it is better to sent your handmade postcard in an envelope, even if the swap tells you to sent naked, it is okay for me. I will not rate you down for this. For me it is much more important that it arrives in good condition. Just write a happy note on the back to make me smile 😉 Thanks for reading this


Hello there,You can call me Inge.

I live in Belgium near the city of Antwerp, together with my husband, son and a crazy cat.

I live in the dutch-speaking part of Belgium.

I've been writing letters for a few years now and it's so much fun to decorate them and send little presents. I like to create collages with old pictures, magazines,... And it must be great to make things for people you don't know from places you've never heard about....

When I'm not swapping or writing letters I love to go out for a walk in nature, do some cycling in summer, love to travel, go to concerts, visite a museum, dance,...

Favorite Music

I loveJazz from the '40 and '50.



Nick Cave.

Patti Smith

All kinds of music.

It depends a lot on my mood of the moment, sometimes I just want to dance, sometimes I need my music to relax, sometimes I just need to sing out loud...


Favorite Crafts

Taking pictures


Mixed media

Art journal

Junk journal





Swapbot is a lovely way to stimulate me to be creative. I've made my first ATCs, did some painting, doodling.

Totally in to making handmade postcards lately.

Always looking for something new to discover.



I'm a great fan of vintage/ retro things from the 40' till the 70'.

Old pictures.

old postcards.

Pages from old magazines or newspaper

Newspaperpages from China, Japan, Korea, Russia... ( other lettertypes)

Pop art

Street art.

Greens and Blues

A splach of neon color




special beers from around the world (ipa's). If you want you can send me labels from beer bottles.

Things handmade from things you find around the house, thriftstore. Just recycle it!!! If you put your heart in it then I will like it, that's how I make my swaps.

I like it when you send a little note in your swap telling a bit about yourself, what you like, how you've spend your day, why you made your swap like that, it doesn't have to be a long letter, just a little note. I like to know the person behind the swap a little.

I have a thing with stars.

I.m looking for old bingo cards. (Thank you all for sending them, I think I have enough at this moment)


No fan of

Bling bling.

Pink ( a little bit is ok)

too childish things.

No religious pamphlets

I don't like too much drama.

Thanks for reading.♥️

The postcard is so pretty, it's on my noticeboard above my craft desk, and the stickers I haven't seen before but they are FAB! :o) x Glad your hair appointment went well, I've been trimming my own hair and I 'think' I'm getting away with it, he he.

Thank you for the card you sent me for the OMAE July RAK Attack! I love the Picasso quote. I just finished handwriting a book of quotes and plan to start another one. This will be the first quote I add. =D

bigmamabird on Jul 14, 2020:

Hi Inge, I also received you lovely card for the May RAK attack today! It also wasn't cancelled and so I also don't know how long it took to travel, and, of course I am curious! We are well here, Vermont has been very lucky... Hope the opening goes well there! Today was a good day, it rained and thundered all day and I got the house chores I anted to do done...

What a lovely envelope full of delight goodies arrived on my doorstep yesterday. Thank you, I loved so many of the pieces that were completely new to me. Take care for now ja x

Ciska76 on Jun 26, 2020:

Hoi Inge, dankjewel voor de leuke post (OMAE JUNE RAK attack). Wat een feest om te ontvangen! Heerlijk vooruitzicht bijna vakantie. Een weekje naar zee klinkt goed! Wij zijn net twee dagen in Zeeuws Vlaanderen geweest. Even helemaal weg én met deze temperaturen geeft de zee lekkere verkoeling. Moest wel wennen aan de drukte (hoe afstand houden op het terras? Of op de strand overgang?). Nu in de hangmat in de tuin 🏕🏖. Fijne vakantie! ❤️

RockyBeach on Jun 10, 2020:

Oh wow! I also completely forgot about the accordion bookie! So the envelope made its own 3 month lock down. Good things come to those who wait.
