About Me

I am currently not participating in any swaps. However I am active with tagging on the main forum or in groups.

Hello fellow swappies, My friends call me Nala, I am a Southern girl from the Netherlands. Nala is a nickname given to me by a British friend. In an African language ( Sorry can't remember which one) Nala means peace. My birthname is Irene, which was the Grecian Goddess of Peace. I do not like war, fighting and all things like racism, discrimination and such. So Both names suite me well.

I love anything to do with dollhouses, panda bears, owls, tea, tattoos, music, quotes, Harry Potter, stationery/letter sets, Bearinton Bears, and creativity.

I am fluent in Dutch and English, however grammar is not one of my strong suites, neither in Dutch nor English. Please forgive me for the mistakes I make, feel free to correct me if you want.

As of march 2017, I am in a mental health clinic. I have some issues I need to learn to deal with. Please read below to see how mail is forwarded to me.
I hope by June this year I will be able to move into a nice little rental house and continue therapy there.

Please read through the rest of my profile to see what I like, dislike and get to know more about me.

I am open to private swaps, I do prefer swaps that can fit through a mailbox, because of shipping costs.

Thank you for dropping by,



This Black Ribbon is in loving memory of my grandmothers and grandfather, who all have suffered and died from Cancer. To does of you affected ( in some way) by this terrible thing, my heart goes out to you. Strength and love to you all

Info about mailservice

Please NOTE that on the weekend mail is not collected by Dutch Mail Service.

Please also note that mail that is sent to me can take some time. Usually mail towards the clinic will go to the main office at the clinic's terrain first and a day later it is forwarded to the clinic's mailbox in the late afternoon. I ask staff to check the mailbox daily ( they do tent to forget, I mean how can you forget about mail??? LOL) during the week. Sadly on weekends mail is not forwarded to the clinic so I have to wait until Monday or Tuesday to get my mail. I will rate A.S.A.P.

If you haven't received anything from me for a swap within a reasonable amount of time please let me know!!!!!!!
