About Me

Hello :)

I am working nine to five at day and adoring paper at night. I have a job full of all-day-long-communication. I love my job very much , but I really appreciate a few quiet minutes a day :)

Cut outs and images are a great fun to cut and paste. I love the texture of every paper and the sound of it. And how it looks :)

Letters, mail art and everyday-ephemera are a great pleasure to me.

Flow-ish junk journals make me so happy :) I prepare them for myself for vacation, too. To have some paper, when needed. You know. just in case :)

And travelling, reading, gardening and spending quality-time with my partner, too. :)


Favorite Crafts

✄ Mail-Art. I love it.

✄ Journaling

✄ collages

✄ Origami.

✄ everything with paper, I suppose.

✄ making my own envelopes.

✄ crocheting and embroidery.

✄ and so on :)


What I like.

early mornings.

reading at the balkony.

learning dutch.

yellow. mint-green. blue.

hedgehogs and beavers.

children's book illustrations.


typewriters :)

summer rain.

Terry Pratchett. Jane Austen. Jasper Fforde.

charley harper.

peas from my fathers garden.

dick bruna.

address labels.

dennison labels :)

stamps. postage, rubber, acrylic, used,... I love them all :)


classic Paddington bear from darkest Peru.



Richard Scarry.

first snow of the year.

flow magazine. and ma vie.

i loved flow weekly. sigh.


garden gnomes.





temporary wishes: Twinings Green Tea Fudge Melts, (diy) stencils, your unwanted planner stickers :) , Belle & Boo, anything Moomin and everything with an old school-telephone on it :)


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 a dinosaur-kind of woman and less a fairy-one. But if you put a litte 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 :)

Private Swaps

Yes, private swaps are possible as long as they are not too big or too stressful.

As I drink a lot of tea, I have a lot of empty teabags and teatags...if there is someone collecting them, a swap for stamps, tea or lovely pageflags is always welcome :)

I am always open for a private swap for The Buckingham House/Palace stamps from Royal Mail. I especially adore the " Buckingham House 1819". sigh. If you have any (used is fine) I am thrilled to swap with you :)
