My postcards for swap

IMPORTANT

I will always contact you before rating a 1 or a 3! I would really appreciate if you would it in return!

If you haven't received a swap from me within reasonable amount of time or you didn't like my send, please contact me. I will re-send the swap at once.

Sometimes it happens that my mail gets a cancellation a day later then the day I marked it 'sent'. I don't know why that happens, that's one of the reason I always send out as soon as I get the assignment so I know for sure that I never send out (too) late. Also, the swap bot "sent" date is based on US time zone and not my time zone so please keep this in mind too.

ABOUT RATINGS

Late without communication is a 3 from me. I check the sending date in the list of participants and if you sent out too late, you will get a 3 from me. I am really strick with e-mail swap, as it doesn't take much action to send that out in time. If you can't send it time, don't join the swap. As mentioned before, I will contact you about it anyways.

If your item has already arrived, please take a moment to rate me. When I receive anything, I always try to rate right away. I really think it is not nice to keep your partners waiting for their rating, especially when it is a type 1-swap. It just takes you a few minutes to rate.

About Me

I am Moniek Krouwel, 45 years old from The Netherlands. I am married to Robert for over 18 years now and we have 2 children, a boy Gabriel 18 years old and a girl Ysabelle 13 years old. I work at a law office as an Office Manager.

Summer 2015 made a big change for me. As I realized I would turn 40 that upcoming September, it somehow made me change how I felt about myself. Beeing a non-active, too heavy mum and turning 40 was a BIG thing to me. It clicked in my head and I made a drastic change in my habits. Now I have lost nearly 40 kg (88 lbs) and love to work out every day. I love running and indoor spinning, Really proud of myself and about how I feel about myself!

Every summer we go on holiday to Italy. I love going to Rome. I have been there several times. My husband and I totally felt in love with Italy and we are trying to learn Italian. We are very much into all art of Michelangelo, Raphael, Botticelli, Da Vinci (all Italian renaissance painters in general).

Favorite Music

All of Michael Jackson! He passed away on my son's 7th birthday, that will always be a day with a smile and a tear.... I got myself a tattoo, it's the same as my picture!

Likes/Wishlist

*postcards, especially with Michael Jackson, UNESCO, Italian Renaissance art, Gotochi, Jetoy Cats, Royalty, German city cards ("Ortschildkarte"), cards that show me your country, landscapes....

*anything of Michael Jackson

I also really like Pinterest, it such a great site to find great idea's for almost everything I like to do! I love creating boards and it was a great pleasure to find Pinterest-swaps here. Now I get loaded with all kind of great things and idea's!

Dislike

*Gothic stuff

*scary things

*anything sport related

*anything animal related, sorry, I just don't like it...

*stickers with alphabeth, reward, ones for children

(probably more to come) :-)

Flakers/Non-raters

Non-raters/late raters:

I really don't understand why people wait so long to rate or don't even rate at all. I mention her the names of the people that do this in my swaps.

Flakers: @Rosiie - in a private swap she asked for :-(((((

Comment: I received the PCs. Thank you. They do grow fast, don't they? It seems like my daughters were little such a short time ago and here I am with a grandchild. I have always liked King. He is the only author I can read books of those lengths. Hope your daughter had a great birthday!

Comment: Thank you for passing the postcards on to me; they will be sent out in the next swap. :) I live on a deadend, so we are only able to see the other apartment buildings out of our window. If you go around the corner though there is a bridge with a really nice view of Notre Dame. You can also see the top 1/4 of the Eiffel Tower. The first Sunday of the month is free museum day, and we try to always go to one we haven't been to before, so I'd say museums in general are my favorite places here. The Jardin des Plantes is also high on my list of favorites! For restuarants I'd have to say Ricette Ristorante and Bouillon Julien. I LOVE Disneyland Paris! It's the one and only Disneyland I've been to. I really want to get the annual pass one year, so I can see it in all seasons.
Response: We have had the annual pass twice, it is awesome! We went in each holiday and stayed in summer time on a camp site nearby, in wintertime at Novotel. Now we don't have an AP anymore, but we are planning to come back once all the new rides and renovations are done (2022 I believe?).

Comment: So glad they arrived in time for the next round. Thanks. Before I moved last year I had about 550 books. I donated them to the library and senior center and only kept one of each of my favorite authors. Now I primarily read from my kindle or ipad.
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart! Wow you've had so many books!
