About Me

Hello ! I'm Sylvie, 46 (NOOOO ;-) ), Belgian woman, open-minded, crazy about penpalling, swapping, collecting things and crafting (even if I'm not talented at all lol). I have 5 jobs and penpalling, swapping are my main hobbies : I love making my envelopes or decorating them.
I love washi/deco tapes (I have about 900 different ones), writing papers (at least 250 different ones), postcards, notecards (can't stop buying them). Exchanging with people is sooooo exciting ! I'm the admin of a small group of swapping on Facebook (only for European as a lot of American people don't want to swap overseas - I understand it well due to postal costs - what a pity).
I have 2 grown children and a fantastic man. They use to laugh when they see me trying to make a filpbook or a pocket letter (because I have 2 left hands lol).

Favorite Music

I can't spend a day without listening to music. Some of my favourite bands are Snow Patrol, Green Day, U2 and many others

Favorite Books

I'm a huge Stephen King's books ! But I read any book I can get in my hands. I've just begun to read in english... Awwww : it's so hard for a Blgian little soul :-p

About penpalling

I've been penpalling since I was 11 yo and opening my mailbox every day is one of the best moment of the day :-) I still looking for pen friends in Israël and in the Middle East in general. I also like to exchange fb's but also to make fb's, Lb'S, deco fb's etc

Comment: Thank you for the card Sylvie. It is one of my (many) dreams to visit your country. What is your home/primary language? I think our Afrikaans is very similar to your Dutch or Flemish.
Response: Hi Jayne ! Yes, Dutch has many commun points with Afrikaans (I live in the French talking part of Belgium but can speak a little Dutch) : Goede morgen mijn vriend ;-)

Good morning!

Oh my goodness! You have five jobs??? That's crazy! How do you manage anything else?!

It's not like I can say anything though! I worked six out of seven days last week! Ha :D

I hope you have a great day!

Hello Sylvie,

I would love to see your decorated envelopes! The amount of color and design that goes into paper is so amazing. I have a huge collection too! Maybe you can email me and we can set a private swap for a decorated envelope and note card. Have a great week!

MissBlade on Nov 4, 2018:

HEY! you have 900 Washi tapes! That’s amazing! I bet you have some for every occasion! I wonder how you store it all! Have a good day!
