About Me

*** I am on holidays from 15th until 27th August with limited access to my e-mail ***

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 FBs (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 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. www.stationeryheaven.nl :)

Stationery Heaven

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. It’s a wonderful feeling and a great motivation to find new products and improve the shop everyday!

Postcards

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

hearts

I'm also a member on Postcrossing: ninola. My favourite types of cards, to name a few ideas:

☆ map cards ☆ Vintage pin ups ☆ Fantasy: elves / fairies / dragons / mythological creatures / mermaids / unicorns ☆ Rainbows or rainbow colours ☆ (local) people ☆ Castles or bridges ☆ Doors and windows ☆ Black and white photography style ones ☆ Eyes ☆ Mailbox themed ☆ Mucha ☆ beautiful scenery or beautiful still life ☆ Cavallini style vintage ☆ lovely bright coloured ones or in pastel colours

I'm not really into multiview postcards unless it's a really neat or exceptional one.

Comment: Love the PC and the confession about not being able to cook! When I was young I found a cookbook called "Wolf in Chef's Clothing: the picture cook & drink book for men". All the recipes and ingredients are pictures and it's oversimplified and reads like a comic book, but it was fun to have around and did have some good recipes. It was first published in 1950, but has been reprinted, and I highly recommend it to all non-cooks! If nothing else, y’all will get a laugh out of it! Thank you!

Response: Thank you for the rating! I hope you've enjoyed the swap. So sorry it is without any comment. A little thank you goes a long way ;) I know we all have a busy schedule, but I always put a lot of time and effort in my postcards (besides money!) and a little thank you would make a world's difference. Happy swapping! *smiles*
