--- DUTCHIES: I started a new 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 23 years old and live in the Netherlands. I recently discovered snail mail and bullet journaling, and am now expanding in other "creative areas"! I love folding envelopes and creating cards, and would love to swap mail with people around the world. I have around 10 Dutch penpals, whom I really enjoy writing with.
Some things I like: cats, cooking, reading, Netflix, flowers and cacti. There's much more I like, so please read on!
SUPER SHORT ------------------------------ If you don't want to read my profile, here's what I love receiving:
I LOVE die-cuts and embellishments!
I'm into calming flowers, leaves, plants, cacti or succulents, water, or animals like cats, foxes and fish. But feel free to surprise me!
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!
Coffee, tea (no fruit teas please!), candies: send me your favourites! I also love ribbon, stickers, washi tape, sealing wax, large paperclips or pretty paper.
Something I don't really like: prints with the 'kawaii' style drawings, cartoons or drawings of humans. I personally also don't usually like blank postcards from cities and stuff, unless you write on them!
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.
If I really love your swap, I might ask for your address so I can send you something in return.
*** ITEMS *** I love SO many things in mail, so feel free to go crazy! I love 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... Ohhh and: I like socks. Call me crazy, but what's better than putting on a pair of new socks?! Anything that I can use for snail mail, too.
Also - I recently became a Crazy Plant Lady, so if you have any (indoor plant) seeds with name & instructions, feel free to send them too! I especially love cacti and succulents.
*** 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. I also really like cute cats or foxes!
*** 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!
I'm more into calming flowers, leaves, plants, cacti or succulents, water, or animals like cats and fish. But feel free to surprise me!
*** 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.
Something I don't really like: prints with the 'kawaii' style drawings (anything with faces, haha!), cartoons or drawings of humans. I personally also don't usually like blank postcards from cities and stuff, unless you write on them!
I love tea, but don't like fruit teas.
Colours I don't really use: red, orange, yellow and brown. I hardly ever use any dark colours, but I love pastels!
Also, I have no use for paper napkins (however cute they are!) and I personally don't like the plastic washi tape.
Please don't send me blank city/tourist postcards. I have no use for them. (It's fine if you use them to write your swap messsage on - I'd love to see where you live!)
I prefer reading fiction books. Starting from Harry Potter (I love that those books have magic, but a connection to the real world as well) to the Hunger Games and many inbetween.
Netflix: how to get away with murder, Orphan Black, Pretty Little Liars, Elementary, Please Like Me, Lovesick, New Girl, Modern Family, Orange is the new black, Sherlock.... So many more! Anything 'detective' or NCIS-like to lawyers (suits!) to fiction (magicians). Tips welcome!
I love rock, alternative and indie! My all time favourite is Radiohead but I have so many more: from RY X to Django Django, Muse, JosÃ© GonzÃ¡lez, the Black Keys, Alt-J, Woodkid, Arctic Monkeys and soooo many more. Feel free to include a list of your fav songs!
If you'd like to swap, you can also contact me via Instagram @thepaperletterblog I love getting in touch! I recently got a box filled with papergoodies, including Disney-stuff which I'd like to swap.
