About Me

Hello! Hallo! Hoi! Hey! Hej!

My name is Ciska. I am a working mom who loves to connect and be creative. Together with my partner, our son (2017) and our three chicken I live in the Netherlands, close to the Belgium and German border. We love to grow our own vegetables and create a garden full of wild life.

In my me-time I love to play with paper and to send and receive happy mail and Mail art. Finding a decorated envelope in my mailbox always makes my day 💌.

I love...

  • color, paper, nice designs and patterns, note cards, washi tape, stickers, rubber stamps, address labels, handmade envelopes and inspiring quotes.

  • flowers, animals, houses, bikes, teapots and cups, retro, stars, love, sun, and most of all simplicity.

  • your mail art. Your expression of creativity is so inspiring!

  • to get to know you. Where are you from? What keeps you busy? Things that are typical for where you live. ...


  • Apples and other fruit
  • Bird (songs)
  • Colorful
  • Diecuts & doodles
  • Envelopes (handmade)
  • Flowers & frogs
  • Garden
  • Home
  • Inspiration & Ideas
  • Joy
  • Kindness
  • Love
  • Mail art
  • Note (cards) - a note from you 💜
  • Ocean
  • People
  • Quotes
  • Rubber stamps
  • Smell of fresh bread, coffee, etc
  • Teapots and teacups

  • Universe

  • Vacation
  • Washi tape
  • Xxx
  • Your creativity
  • Zen


Swapbot is for me a way to connect to like minded people, to share mail art and to get inspired.

I will rate you a five ❤️ when swap requirements are met. Finding a decorated envelope in my mailbox makes me happy. I love to receive a note with a swap. Please do not send extras that increase your shippings costs. It is the swap that matters, not the extras. Happy swapping!
