About Me

Hello all!!!!

My name is Irene, but my friends call me Nala. Both names mean peace. Suites me just fine, as I hate fighting, war and negativity towards people.
I love creativity, as well as other people's as my own. Shy at first, though I can seem very chatty, it's just nerves kicking in. Sometimes I am a overthinker, while other times I live with my head in the clouds.

I work at a second-hand clothing store. This store is located at a terrein where people with mental health issues live. It's sort of a mini community within my home town. I like working here as I myself can relate to having mental health issues.
I was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 18. I also am known with depression and anxiety.
However I am doing well and have been for months now. I try to keep positive and keep on fighting my inner battles.

In september 2019, I became an Aunt. This is so special!!!! My niece is very sweet and I love spenting time with her.
I also like spending time with my family and friends.

In my free time I love crafting, listening to music ( and singing along very out of tune), snail mail, reading and wathing tv series.

My favorite activity is working on one of my dollhouse projects. I have this hobby since I was 18 and still love doing it. I have a site where you can see my dollhouse projects. The link you can find at the top of the page.

~ Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light ~

As for things I like:

  • I LOVE
  • The Harry Potter Series.

  • Tea, all except for Strawberry and Vanilla.
  • Postcards, blank in envie.

Postcards

As for postcards, I really love viewcards with something of your country/ city/ state on it.
Architecturial and nature scenes are my favorite.

For the non touristy postcards, my abc might help. I also just started a collection of postcards to do with tea. So tea cups/ tea pots/ tea leaves ect.

If for a swap a handmade card is aloud, please think of sending me one, I love seeing other peoples creativity.

If you send 1 postcard, I prefer it written and stamped. More postcards in an envelope please.

I do not collect stamps, so your most boring/ standerd stamp is fine with me.

Rather Not Receive

There are a few things I rather you wouldn't send me. As I won't use it and feel it's better to keep it for someone who would be happy with it.

  • Make up or skin products. ( I have very sensitive skin and am know with several allergies)
  • Coffee. ( I don't drink coffee and don't get many coffee drinking guests)
  • Fb's, slams, atc's, zines, ect.
  • Chocolate. ( I don't like it, I know that's very uncommen for a woman)

I am not a fan of the color red, for some reason it makes me nervous.

I do not celebrate any holidays or anything else, just so you know.

Dutch Mail Service

Please note that mail is not delivered on Sundays and Mondays. Also mail is not collected on Saterdays and Sundays.

If for some reason you think it's taking to long to reach me, please message me, we will work something out.

If you think my mail should have reached you and I have not contacted you yet, please do contact me, to work something out.

Due to new international gidelines, Dutch Mailservice has decided that non paper items ( goods) need to be send as a package with a custum form. So I won't be sending much non paper items, like teabags, as often as I used to, because of the extra costs to send these items.
