Hello :)

Somebody asked if I am a smoker, because of this picture. I am a non-smoker :) But I love these Dick Bruna Illustrations from the 60ies and 70ies :)


I will delete this sooner or later, but here we are:

So: All swaps I host are senders choice. They have to be, because I spend a lot of time in hospital. All envelopes are prepared, have a date on it and need just to be addressed. This is for the worst case. When I am fresh :) then I do not use this envelopes and make personal ones. I had do learn this the hard way. So please be not upset, when from time to time there is no personal attach to it.

And second: I love to make my envelopes out of magazine pages, catalogues or calendars. This is my happy place. Listening tto Audiobooks and make them. If you do not like these envelopes, then please tell me beforehand, I will use a regular then. This is not about the money. It is about my happy place and my tiny-step-a-day for the environment.

Favorite Crafts

  • MailArt. I love it.

  • Journaling - colourful and playful :), full of childrensbooks-illustrations, postcards and fun quotes on the left side, on the right side I journal what comes to mind :) (so not so much vintage perfection, more "oh, there is another dino-page" haha)

  • Collage

  • Origami

  • handmade stickers

  • Everything with paper :)

What I like.

  • early mornings

  • dinosaurs

  • yellow. apple green. blue.

  • but to be honest: yellow :)

  • Paper bombs a la @stephiedee

  • crisp air

  • used postage stamps. or mint. (if you cut them yourself from the envelope: please leave at least 1/4inch or 5mm paper around :)

  • kindness

  • richard scarry

  • Dick Bruna

  • classic Paddington Bear. from darkest Peru :)

  • little soft spot for Moonins, Peanuts.

  • honeybees and bumblebees

  • Flow, MaVie, TheGuardian, Hygge, ..

  • learning Dutch

  • office stickers: dots, arrows,labels,.

  • envelope seals. round stickers. Trader Joe stickers.

  • flat stickers

  • fun page flags

  • ladybugs 🐞 and toadstools 🍄

  • hedgehog a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g :)

  • umbrella & raindrops.

  • Totoro with his umbrella :)

  • Belle & Boo

  • rubber stamps. clear stamps. metal dies.

  • mini-zines

  • Themed Happy mail (think themes like: old telephones, music tapes, panda bears, yellow, moomins,...)

  • And I seem to be the one and lonely person, you can send tiny tiny stickers, notebooks and pencils to :) :) :)

  • Currently: I am looking for grid washitape, thin washitape, stickiistickers and dachshund-things. Folding 1000 papercranes with much needed patterned Origamipaper, 7x7 cm (under 3 inches) preferred, but all sizes are welcome!! But this section changes a lot, this is always about: my current project/ journal / obsession :)

and finally...

Do I have dislikes? Yes, of course I have. Will I list them? No.

I have met wonderful people here at swap-bot. They were carefuI with their swaps and put so much effort in them. I was happy all day long because of their thoughtfulness and kindness, although the swap might not be exactly my taste.

For me swap-bot is about thoughtfulness and inspiration, about humour, kindness and art. I maybe am more into dinosaurs and less into fairies. But if you put a little winged fairy on a dinosaurs' shoulders on your mailart: this fairy would be the most treasured fairy on the planet.

To be honest: there is no chance I would appreciate a swap which is against people (how they look like, whom they love, where they live,..) or animals. But anything put together with respect, care and humour is very much appreciated.

Please send just kidfriendly things. That would be really nice :)

At the moment...

WTA: IFM March20 - not sent yet (India)

LDEM sticky notes on the way...

LDEM Bonus mail 24.1.R & 23.1. & M & W

CPG #3 10.1.

If you are my swap partner and are a collector of teatags or empty teabags, please let me know. I tuck as many in our swap as I can. or we could do a private swap. I am always open for a swap for other leightweight things like used stamps (preferred) or airmail labels, stickers or your favourite vegan reecipe :)

Thanks so much for the September Make A Wish goodies! I love the fun envelope! And your note is great. I think I can mostly (sort of!?) decipher the story! You went to the beach in the Netherlands, sun to rain to storms!? Had to fix the camper on the way home?! Well, most of all I hope you had a fun and safe trip!!!! Ha ha! I love the postcards! The lemurs are really cute! And that really wide washi is nice! Hope October has been good to you!!! Sending good wishes your way! xoxo
