Hi there! I am Nina, a 30-something mother of 3 (boy 2012, girl 2015, boy 2016).
Ever since I was a little girl, I was always busy with scissors, pens and paper so about writing was a natural interest. When we had a penpal exchange in the 5th grade to practice English, my love for penpalling had begun! Penpalling lead to exchanging FB’s (friendship booklets) when a penpal introduced me to one. Those eventually lead to exchanging decos and slams. As of today I am still active in swapping slams and I have several lovely penpals from all over the world.
I love picking out postcards and preparing packages! Maybe even more as much as receiving them (^_^). Although i love the sound of (fat) mail falling down on my doormat and love opening packages ♥
I’ve always had a weakness for Kawaii stationery, but at the same time it is so very hard to find any here in The Netherlands or let alone in Europe. That’s when I finally decided to set up my own webshop "Stationery Heaven" in early 2013 during my maternity leave. Stationery Heaven is an online Webshop selling cute stationery such as letter pads and letter sets. Additionally, I offer decotapes, stickers, accessories, and a wide range of postcards for Postcrossing lovers.
If you want to have a look? www.stationeryheaven.nl SHIPPING WORLDWIDE
Offering these Kawaii products as well as getting the kind feedback from happy customers makes Stationery Heaven a real joy! I love to see that these cute products make other people so excited.
I was born and raised in Hoogland, a small village next to Amersfoort in the center of The Netherlands. Love brought me to the city of Nijkerk (11 km away from my hometown) where I live nowadays with my boyfriend and our little ones in our new bought home.

Happy swapping!! :D
I prefer my postcards written and stamped please! That means NO envelope. I like the way they get a little banged up during their travel. (If we do a blank postcards swap I of course prefer them in an envelope, unwritten)
I pretty much always give hearts for swaps. I sort of feel bad if I don't get a heart myself and I don't want that feeling for someone else. I always put my heart in my swaps and postcards. Besides, I love hearts ♥♥♥♥♥♥
I'm also a member on Postcrossing: ninola. My favourite types of cards, to name a few ideas:
*beautiful scenery *beautiful still life *lovely bright coloured ones *pastel colours *kawaii and cute (no Disney please) *vintage pin ups *Fantasy: elves/ fairies / dragons / mythological creatures *(local) people *castles *old city scenes *bridges *pretty gardens *postcards with 30's, 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's etc. *vintage postcards *fashion *Greyscale postcards *Black and white postcards
I'm not really into multiview postcards unless it's a really neat or exceptional one.
