About Me

My name is Mieke. I'm a 56 years old and living in Rotterdam (Netherlands). I'm married and have 2 childeren. I have a job at a school as 'timetable administrator'. I'm often busy with my crafts and making swaps. Also I like to cycle and nordic walking in my surrounding. I really like to make swaps. It's great fun when I return home and a pretty envelope on the doormat is waiting at my home coming.

You will make me very happy with delipaper!

If I am your sender, try to avoid my Instagram as I keep posting there sometimes what I do for swapbot.

Favorite Crafts

I had in the past several hobbies, such as lacemaking, quilting, embroidery and textile art. At the moment I really like to play with paper and paint and create for example a art journal, collages, mailart, handmade books. I love mixed media. Somethimes I make also my own stamps. I followed several e-courses from Mary Ann Moss, Jane Davenport and Roben-Marie Smith.

I like to do:

  • Swaps and mailart.
  • Playing with paper and paint in my art journal.
  • Making handmade books
  • Making (micro) photographs from flowers and insects in my garden.
  • Drinking coffee by Kaldi with my mother.
  • Drinking tea.
  • Eating with friends.
  • Walking and bicycle in the nature.

I collect

  • Some themes I like are: Alice in wonderland, Circus, Winnie-the-Pooh (not the Disney-kind, but the older ones), Richard Scarry.
  • Old black and white vintage photos.
  • Polaroid photo's.
  • Old handwriting.
  • Old bus/train/theater tickets.
  • All sort of vintage ephemera.
  • Different types of ephemera paper (e.g. old handwriting, handwritten notes, old postcards, old advertisment cards, old happy birthday/cristmas cards).
  • Vintage magazines, wrapping paper, old games items.

Stuff you can send to me

  • Delipaper. If you have delipaper in house, please send me some.
  • Circus items.
  • Alice-in-wonderland items.
  • Old winnie-the-Pooh items.
  • Black and white vintage photos or color photos.
  • Paper, vintage ephemera.
  • Old pieces of wallpaper
  • Old bus/train/metro tickets.
  • Old handwriting.
  • Vintage cards/postcards.
  • Die cuts.
  • Handmade paper.
  • Masking tape.
  • Stickers, rub ons.
  • Handmade things (atc, postcards, books, mailart).
  • Stationary.
  • Magnets.
  • Little metal things.
  • All sort of mixed media items.
  • And i love also surprises.

I like the colour combinations turquoise, (lime)green, red and purple or turquoise with orange/ grey. But I like all the colors actually. Lots of color combinations (6 or more) together I don't like so much, it is to busy for me.

I like nice looking postal stamps, not those postoffice printouts. And if possible, please don't use the round USA forever stamps.


White or green tea are my favourites with a fruit flavor. And i like spicy tea. I love to experiment with tea.

I like the next tea very much:

  • LOV Organic tea.
  • Nordqvist Valkoinen (flavoured white tea).
  • Elephant, Mandarine Croseille.
  • Goldmanchen-tee, medi-terranee provence.

I don't like:

  • Rooibos tea (translation bushtea, redbush tea, red tea, South African red tea).
  • Tea with ginger or gingerbread.


While I would totally be grateful for anything you send to me, these are the things I would have to pass on to others:

  • Religious, scary, vampire, zombie, war, Hello Kitty, Disney, kawaii.

I don’t like:

  • Things with a parfume or other smell. Parfum is so personal.
  • Don’t send me (old) bookpages. I have enough of it.


I rarely read books, usually only during a vacation. When I read books, then it is often detectives.

I read sometimes magazines, for instance ArtJournaling or the Flow. And I read the dutch newspaper 'Algemeen Dagblad'.

I almost never listen to music, but I listen a lot to the Dutch radio.

Comment: Dank je wel voor de kaart voor je nieuwe ronde. Sorry, ik was een paar dagen een beetje knock-out door de vaccinatie van maandag: dikke pijnlijke arm, griepverschijnselen en verhoging. Alle voor het goede doel, over 12 weken mag ik weer terug komen. Wel fijn hoor: een Collaboration kaart die je bijna per fiets zelf kunt bezorgen.......;-)
Response: haha de volgende keer kom ik hem gewoon even langsbrengen op de fiets. Hoop dat de 2e prik wat minder pijnlijk is, ik ben helaas nog wachtende maar ze zijn haast bij mijn geboortejaar.

Dankjewel voor je RAK van het Art journaling magazine! Moet eerst wat vervelende klussen doen en daarna ga ik er lekker mee op de bank zitten :D Ik hoop dat je mijn ruilpakketje net zo leuk vindt; komt donderdag als het goed is want dinsdag na de buslichting gepost. (Kon geen brievenbus vinden in de Zeister bossen ;)
