About Me

Hellooo there! My profile is quite long, but please don't be intimidated by that. I'm an easy-going person and as long as you send me something you'd love to receive, I'm happy! (Meaning: no damaged/sticky items... You get the idea :P) You can use my profile for a guideline, but don't let it hold you back. Here's some info/links first, and then the rest of my profile!

✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

I added a Pinterest moodboard to my links! ☀️

Please message me if anything went wrong with my parcel or letter! I have never had any problems, and I always send on time :)

--- DUTCHIES: Je mag me ook een berichtje sturen voor mijn thuisadres, die post krijg ik veel sneller dan in mijn postbus! :) I started a group for everyone from the Netherlands! It's called "Nederlandse Swappers" http://www.swap-bot.com/group/c0e9cc93caeb7dd030f195df9c846af2/about ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

Hey all! My name is Vivian, I am 25 years old and live in the Netherlands. In my daily life I work as a waitress, but snail mail + YouTube is my biggest hobby. Paper makes me happy, so I enjoy crafting and writing letters more than anything! At the moment I don't accept swaps or penpals, as I have a healthy stash of mail to reply to already 😁 My list of likes is super long, and I am totally okay with re-gifting also. And recycling. If I can add one tiny request, it's please mind your use of plastic in my mail! Thank you! 😊

I'm a recycler - so if you receive a swap from me, the giftbags might be reused. I will only re-send items that are still in good condition, though. Feel free to send me recycled envelopes/bags as well!

When you rate my swap, please include a little note! I love hearing what you think of it, and whether you liked it or not.

What I'd love to receive

*** ITEMS *** I love SO many things in mail, so feel free to go crazy! I love labels, tickets, stamps, ribbon, trims, bows, sealing wax, stickers, washi tape, pretty paper, bookmarks, postcards, lomo cards, die cuts, or animal/flower/random shapes made with embossing machines like big shot... Anything that I can use for snail mail, too. Vellum or that milky see through paper (with/without prints), pretty paper in general: yes please!

I'm always looking for Pink Paislee/Maggie Holmes/Dear Lizzy items, as well as other big American brands. It's not easy to get things like washi tapes of those brands here, so I'd be foreeeever grateful :D

Die cuts that say "hello" are really cool... As well as labels, again. I love labels. Vintage or new, I collect them all! And twine.

*** PRINTS *** My favourite cards/prints/paper/stickers/washi usually include either watercolour drawings and flowers or botanical prints. Anything with pastel colours is usually good, too! My favourite colours are blue and green, but purple and pink are also in my stash. Actually, I love all colours these days as I sometimes try some vintage themes :P

*** MAIL *** I'm the type of person who loves mail made with attention: include stories, something about yourself, your favourite tea, photos (of your cat, haha!), a quote you love or some words in your native language and you make me extremely happy!

*** TEA/COFFEE *** I love receiving either! I love any type of tea except fruit teas. Also, I have plenty of "normal" green/black/white tea, but I'd like to get some of your favourites!

My favourite brand is clipper tea, but I also like loose leaf or whichever. As long as it's wrapped in a clean envelope and has the ingredients listed :D

Dislikes

Something I don't really like: prints with the 'kawaii' style drawings (anything with faces, haha!), cartoons or drawings of humans. Darker colours are not really my thing, but feel free to use them for your projects.

I love tea, but don't like fruit teas. Also, I personally don't like the plastic washi tape.

Please don't send me blank city/tourist postcards as a gift: I have no use for them. (However, it's totally okay if you use them to write your swap messsage on - I'd love to see where you live!)

Comment: Vivian always puts her heart into her projects (even when creative block strikes!) and this swap was no different! I'm in love with the gorgeous papers used and the goodies she included! I am inspired by her all the time, but to actually have this mail in my hands and see the time & effort & love she put into it inspires me even more! Thank you, not only for this mail, the hours of inspiring & relatable content that you put out & the joy you bring to this crafty little community you have created!

Comment: Oh my goodness Vivian I feel so spoiled for getting your beautiful mail for a third time. I love everything that you included for me, especially the Note and Wish stationery. And how amazing that you made the envelope out of your own printables :) Thank you so much! Looking forward to sending a reply to you soon.

Comment: Thank you Vivian for the beautiful happy mail! I loved all the penpals goodies you included and can't wait to try to recreate some of them for the first time - especially a shaker! I also ordered some nuvo drops after seeing how nicely they just finish off a mail in your videos so I can't wait to play with them too. I also loved the way the envelope was decorated with the hexagons - the ladies at my post office loved it too!

Comment: Wow, het is te zien dat hier veel liefde en aandacht aan is besteed! Wat is het een mooi mapje geworden zeg, ik ben er super blij mee. En er zitten ook nog zoveel geweldige goodies bij, zo fijn! Ik heb zelf geen seals, dus nu kan ik er toch mee spelen. Heel erg bedankt voor een super mooie swap! Naaitips (hihi): spanning checken/jeansnaald gebruiken/dunner garen misschien? Ik vond het er wel prima uitzien hoor!

Comment: Bedankt voor het fleurige kaartje! Ik heb ook al jaren geen boom in huis, de kat vind het erg interessant al dat glimmend. Toen ik nog wel een boom had hingen er plastic ballen in, en die rolde geregeld over de grond. Dus nu versier ik gewoon de rest zonder boom :)

Comment: Hi Vivian, je tweede envelopje is vandaag binnengekomen 💖 De eerste envelop is helaas nog steeds op reis. Super leuk om weer eens iets van je te ontvangen. Je loopt inderdaad erg achter haha, maar wie weet krijg je er nog een paar extra 😉 Ik heb mee gedaan met alle dagen, dus ben bijna compleet 😊 Leuk dat je mijn kaartjes tegenkwam op Etsy! 💖

Comment: Bedankt voor de kaart in een leuk thema, helemaal mijn ding en bedankt voor de goodie bag. De envelop was aan beide kanten open. Ik denk omdat je een heel fijne steek gebruikt waardoor het papier geperforeerd wordt. Sommige dingen staken eruit, gewoon. Beterschap trouwens, hoop dat het geen corona is.

Just when I needed a little pick-me-up, I receive the most adorable little envie today and just wanted to drop by and say thank you! You really are just too sweet, do you know that!? 🙃 I loved all the little goodies, but my favorite had to be the little note & picture of your fur babe - how cute!?!

Thank you for being you - pure awesome ❤️
