About Me

For my swap partners: I fell off my horse yesterday (May 17th)... luckily I didn't brake anything but I cannot walk at all (sitting at home watching tv is all I can do right now), and as I'm not sure how long it'll take before I can do some steps I don't know when I'll be able to mail out swaps. Maybe a few days but maybe longer... I'll keep you all up to date. Sorry for the inconvinience and please don't rate me 3 or 1 for this =(


as I live in a tiny village and we have no postoffice here, I would very much appreciate if you won't send your mail registered unless it really has to. The closest by postoffice is quite a long drive for me and have to plan the ride. If you really want to send something registered, please ask for my office address... there's always someone to sign for it. Thanks!


Hello =) I'm 25 years old girl/women (how ever you wanna call it) and live with my boyfriend and pets in a small village in the Netherlands. I work full-time at an administration office in our capital Amsterdam. Therefore I have to travel 3 hours a day by train to get there and go back home... In my spare time I love to play with my pets; cats and a horse (not standing at home unfortunatly). Also I really love travelling, penpalling, sending postcards (and collect the stamps), having fun with my boyfriend, shopping, some sewing and trying new crafts.

My boyfriend and I have been together for more then 4 years now and plan to get married next year. His name is Dennis and is already jealous at all the great mail I receive as he only gets bills and tax office papers =)


My collections

I would love to collect alot of stuff but my bf won't let me... So I've decided to pick a few things only:

  • postage stamps (used and unused)
  • stuffed toys
  • souvenir keychains
  • accessoires for clothes (broches, pins etc.)
  • cat statues (all sort of materials)

I would really appreciate if you can use some pretty stamps on your envelope to me. And if possible and not required for the swap, I rather receive postcards unwritten in an envelope so I can remove the stamps from the envelope easily. Thanks!

I try to re-use ALL the envies/boxes that I receive. Only when it's not usable anymore I'll thow it away. Please try to send me stuff in re-used envies too, I'd feel more comfortable then =) Also I don't wrap my gifts, only if nessecary because some items are fragile and could brake during the sending process.


I always rate swaps the same day as I receive them. Ofcourse there are some exceptions, if I'm on holidays or simply not at home that day. I would never wait leaving ratings.

Please message me if you haven't received my swap. As I'm from the Netherlands, you should atleast allow 3-4 weeks for the swap to arrive. I know US customs are a pain in the ... so please be patient and don't rate me 1 or 3 without having had contact with me about it.

sleepingrover2010 rated for -U- Postcard Recipe Swap on Jun 19, 2009
Comment: Hello Linda, I wish to extend my appreciation for your patience with me in getting your rating done for this swap. I was not very fast in getting it done, but you waited patiently for me. I thought finding a true recipe for "U" would be difficult and you proved me wrong. You found a "true" recipe for "U." I thought that was SO COOL and I loved the cool postcard as well. I hope we have opportunities to swap with one another again. Until we meet again, Happy Swapping!!! Barb Brandt sleepingrover2010

jacksbluejane on May 22, 2009:

woman!!! i hope you are feeling better! i have done the very same thing... only with me it wasn't the horse's fault... i just wasn't paying attention and he knew better! HA! Glad you survived... does that mean you're now stronger? (What doesn't kill us makes us stronger....) Butterflies don't kill us... do they make us stronger? huh... Something to think about today.....
