About Me

Happy September !!

last time rated and received: September 29tz

just to be clear: #blacklivesmatter

Hello :)

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

  • ladybugs

  • dinosaurs

  • yellow. lime green. blue.

  • Paper bombs a la @stephiedee

  • crisp air

  • used postage stamps. or mint.

  • kindness

  • richard scarry :) :) :)

  • Dick Bruna

  • classic Paddington Bear. from darkest Peru

  • little soft spot for Moomins, Gyro Gearloose and his Little Helper, The Peanuts and the Minions : )

  • honeybees and bumblebees

  • Flow, MaVie, TheGuardian, Hygge, ..

  • learning Dutch

  • office stickers: dots, arrows, numbers,..

  • fun page flags

  • hedgehog a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g :)

  • umbrella & raindrops.

  • Totoro with his umbrella :)

  • caravans (camping)

  • quentin blake

  • koala. giraffe. sloth. panda :)

  • illustrations (children books, flow,..)

  • Mailart. Happy mail.

  • Jane Austen. Jasper Fforde. Terry Pratchett. Thomas Bernhard,

  • thoughtfulness

  • random envelopes. lucky dip (bags).

  • BBC 4 extra.

  • whales. otters. elephants. beavers. whales :)

  • You have the perfect vegan recipe?Tuck it in :) :)

  • neon

  • Comic strips. cut from your newspaper are just perfect.

  • page tabs

  • tiny stickers

  • mini-zines!

  • Themed Happy mail (think themes like: old school telephones, music tapes, yellow, dinosaurs,...)

  • and I am the person you can send your unwanted tiny tiny stickers to :)

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 :)
