About Me

++PLEASE NOTE: I will be away on holidays from 19-31 August and will not be able to rate during this time. Will do so when I return :) ++

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: De rating voor "extra special" is vooral voor de overkomstduur van je kaart. Hij stond afgelopen woensdag al in de app, vandaag viel hij op de mat. De foto intrigeert me toch wel, word er een poging gedaan de wereld te torsen? En waarom staat er alleen een deel van Europa op? Ik weet dat er een mogelijkheid is om met Google een afbeelding te traceren. Maar daar heb ik 1 van mijn kinderen voor nodig..................;-) Aha: gevonden! Parc de la Tête d'Or in Lyon, Frankrijk. Met dank aan mijn zoon, Google en -maps zijn zijn bron van wijsheid!
Response: Woooow! De toeristische route zeg maar dus.. En wat gaaf dat je hebt kunnen ontdekken wat het nou precies is. Dat moet ik ook maar eens Googlen hoe dat werkt ;) Bedankt voor de mooie rating en het hartje ❤️❤️❤️

Comment: Bedankt voor de hele leuke kaart. Hij kwam gister omdat er een retour sticker op zat waar ik soms niks van snap want adres stond er goed op.
Response: Irritant dat ze dat doen af en toe. Ik had er van de week ook zo eentje. Hele kaart onleesbaar door zo'n grote sticker. De machines kunnen blijkbaar toch niet zo goed kaarten lezen.. Bedankt voor de mooie rating en het hartje ❤️❤️❤️

Hi Nina. Received your WTA cards today. Thank you! I like them all, but the vintage show girl card is so cool! Thanks again!

Oh Nina, I just LOVE the postcards you sent! (Postcard Trading Group - Two (2) Postcards in an Envelope Tag.) They are just lovely and I appreciate them so very much. Thanks for the wonderful Happy Mail! Hope you are well. =)

Hi! I;m glad you liked the card & stickers. We April Babies need to stick together!

Thank you for your kind thoughts about my Mother. It is a new challenge every day and I know it will only get worse.

I must tell you that the most support I have gotten, is not from Alzheimer's Chat Groups (although they are great) or from close friends, but from Swap-bot friends. People like you who take the time to write a simple comment on my Profile means the world to me.

Smiles, Sunny
