About Me

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.

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.

Comment: Thank you for the card. I can see how that error can happen. I have some off brand photo paper that is real hard to tell which side to print on. I also love the picture on it The bright colorful mailboxes set in the fence rails. I have not had a box like that since we moved back to town over 30 years ago. Both mobile home parks I have lived in since then have a mail room with walls of locked boxes like Post office boxes,

Comment: I love when I get to swap with you, you're awesome! Thank you for the postcards, esp. the Tacoma Narrows one, I went over that bridge many a time as a child, when it was just one bridge and we still had family living down near there. It was scary to cross in wind~! I have yet to go on the new span, but it's something I want to do in the future, maybe eventually when the tolls on the new bridge come off, Thanks again!

Comment: Dank je wel voor je mooie ansichtkaart (gisteren gearriveerd). Hij hangt inmiddels aan de muur. Nee, een dochter die gek is op Korea hoor je niet zo vaak; maar iemand die met een Koreaan is getrouwd komt hier ook niet zo veel voor ;-)
Response: Hier ook niet hoor, in het Nijkerkse :) Ik ben blij dat je de kaart mooi vindt! Bedankt voor het hartje ♥♥

Comment: Good point about the painters! I don't have a very good visual memory so prefer to work from photos when drawing. I would have been out of luck before photography was common!

Ps-thanks for the Nijntje postage! I was so sad the Dick Bruna house was being renovated this summer as I was so close (Den Haag).
