About Me

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: 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 penpals, whom I really enjoy writing with.

I'm into calming flowers, leaves, plants, cacti or succulents, water, or animals like cats, foxes and fish. But feel free to surprise me! More info down below.

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.

If I really love your swap, I might ask for your address so I can send you something in return.

What I'd love to receive

Currently looking for the following items... Paper bows!

Anything from Pink Paislee or Maggie Holmes - especially washi tape samles.

I love (address) labels! Either vintage or new, large or small... Any shape or size! I also love the 'normal' ones, just plain white with a colored border.

Pink/white bakers twine, mint/lime/light green twine, cute buttons in pastel colours and patterned tissue wrap. Also, I love letter stickers - I prefer full sheets.

Die-cuts (from one of those big-shot machines :p) I'd LOVE to receive: the word 'hello' or 'love', and flowers or butterflies with holes in them if that makes sense. So they're kind of see through!

Rooibos/vanilla tea! I love any flavour with vanilla or cinnamon, but please no fruit teas.

General likes

*** 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... 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 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!)


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.

Comment: OMG girl you really went above and beyond! I loved your swap! I couldn't believe when I saw the sequins, I'm dying over those translucent stars, they're gorgeous, but so is everything elseeee. I loved how you packed every little goodie and what a huge variety you sent, you spoiled me rotten! I also loved the Dutch washis, they're to die for! And the Flow mini poster with the cat and the cat lady is beautiful, thanks for sharing it with me! I wish I had been able to include more handmade goodies in my package but I had found so many good deals I had to send those goodies your way, but next time I'm definitely sending more handmade stuff, there were a lot of other goodies I wanted to share with you and it's always a pleasure to swap with you!! Thanks for this awesome swap!!

roosje rated for Mini-pocket letter - Any theme on Jul 5, 2018
Comment: Wow Vivian, wat een heerlijke post heb je voor me gemaakt. Ik vind je mini PL erg geslaagd, echt prachtig en inderdaad goed gevuld. Bedankt ook voor de hele mooie extras, die bladzijde met vogels is zo mooi! Thanx!
Response: Wat fijn om te horen! Het was even zoeken, zo'n eerste pocket letter, maar wel leuk. Graag gedaan!
Comment: First of all, Vivian explained me how Swap-bot works and she answered all my queries. So, thank you Vivian for that! She sent the goodies well before the decided date. I loved all the things she sent, especially the diecuts and stickers. She made this cute little flipbook and the colours and theme chosen was of my style. The messages written on flipbook gave it more personal touch. She also included a letter which really surprised me. Looking forward to do more swaps and be your penpal. 🙂
Response: You are so welcome! I'm always happy to introcuce new people to the fun of swap-bot :D And at first I knew I didn't have a lot of time, but then once I started I just got sooo excited and I couldnt stop, haha! I'm glad you liked it, thanks for doing this swap with me!

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 ❤️
