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 this year, I am in a mental health clinic. I have some issues regarding my childhood I need to learn to deal with.
At the moment I don't have a whole lot to do here therapy wise, so I am trying my best at crafting, snail mailing and swapping. When I am not being crafty or preparing swaps or snail mail, I love to go outside for walks, watch tv series or movies and drink a big mug of tea or work on decorating one of the dollhouse projects I am working on.
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,

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!!!!!!!
