About Me

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

Hey all! My name is Vivian, I am 22 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're too lazy 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, postcards 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!

Likes

Currently collecting ANYTHING with butterflies (drawings, no photos) or galaxies! :)

*** ITEMS *** I love SO many things in mail, so feel free to go crazy! I love vintage cut-outs of e.g. botanical, animal or floral prins. I love ribbon, bows, 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. I love picking up vintage books to use the prints (birds, butterflies, flowers) in my mail. 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.

Dislikes

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!

I also don't like fruit teas.

Favorite Books

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.

Favorite Television

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!

Favorite Music

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, José González, the Black Keys, Alt-J, Woodkid, Arctic Monkeys and soooo many more. Feel free to include a list of your fav songs!

Swap?

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.
