About Me

01/02/2023 Slowly I want to start swapping again here on swapbot. Last year has been pretty busy. We had to do some renovations, my son moved out, my craft room became a storage room,…🙀🙀

A new year has arrived (best wishes to all of you!) and I must say that I missed swapping a lot! So I want to start again, slowly, slowly, one swap at the time…

I promise to rate as soon your swap drops into my mailbox. I would like you to do the same. That’s how I know you received my swap.

I will do my best to send my swaps on time. If not I will contact you.

If you didn’t receive my swap by accident, please let me know

So lets have some fun swapping💌


Hello there,You can call me Inge.

I live in Belgium near the city of Antwerp, together with my husband, son and a crazy cat. (My son moved out and the cat died…)

I live in the dutch-speaking part of Belgium.

I've been writing letters for a few years now and it's so much fun to decorate them and send little presents. I like to create collages with old pictures, magazines,... And it must be great to make things for people you don't know from places you've never heard about....

When I'm not swapping or writing letters I love to go out for a walk in nature, do some cycling in summer, love to travel, go to concerts, visite a museum, dance,...

Favorite Music

I loveJazz from the '40 and '50.



Nick Cave.

Patti Smith

I’ve been to a concert of Iggy Pop last summer, felt18 again!

All kinds of music.

It depends a lot on my mood of the moment, sometimes I just want to dance, sometimes I need my music to relax, sometimes I just need to sing out loud...


Favorite Crafts

Taking pictures


Mixed media

Art journal

Junk journal





Swapbot is a lovely way to stimulate me to be creative. I've made my first ATCs (stopped making them, not really my thing), did some painting, doodling.

Totally in to making handmade postcards and decorated envelopes lately.

Always looking for something new to discover, inkboxcard(3’x3’cards) is something new I like to make.



I'm a great fan of vintage/ retro things from the 40' till the 70'.

Pages from old magazines or newspaper

Newspaperpages from China, Japan, Korea, Russia... ( other lettertypes)

Pop art

Street art.

Coffee, tea, latte, beer

Things handmade from things you find around the house, thriftstore. Just recycle it!!! If you put your heart in it then I will like it, that's how I make my swaps.

I like it when you send a little note in your swap telling a bit about yourself, what you like, how you've spend your day, why you made your swap like that, it doesn't have to be a long letter, just a little note. I like to know the person behind the swap a little.


A - art (classic and modern), autumn

B - botanicals, bees, blue, birds, bookpages (vintage). Bicycles,

C - collage, circles, Cuba,

D - deer, donkey, dragonfly

E - ephemera

F - fern, flowers

G - green

H - happy mail (I love to send and receive)

I - images to use in collages

N - numbers, nature

O - open minded people

P - pictures (old vintage), postcards handmade by you or Black and White,

Q - quotes funny and inspiring

R - radio (vintage), retro, robin

T - tickets (vintage), typewriter

U - universe

V - Vintage, vintage, vintage, velum

W - washi tape

No fan of

Bling bling.

Pink ( a little bit is ok) just not too “prinsessy”


too childish things.

No religious pamphlets

I don't like too much drama.

Thanks for reading.♥️

fiberlady23 rated for Singske and Fiberlady23 Swap on Apr 11, 2023
Comment: Singske, Your swap/letter was amazing! First, the envelope was so cool. I loved the green sci-fi space woman! Your letter was nicely written and your English was great. The mixed media index card was my fave. All the extras like the gelli print samples and the vintage papers will be saved for future projects. The koi stationary was a nice touch. I have to let you know I debated how to open the envelope and carefully, so I cut it down one side on the fold so that I would include it in my mail art book I am making. Wonderful swap. I'm glad you feel better! Thanks!!
Response: Thank you for your kind rating. It was fun to do this private swap with you, thanks for hosting it, the first and second time😂. It was a pleasure to make and receive yours.💌 Glad the sci-fi woman has made it to your mail art book.
Comment: Thanks for this beautiful and generous swap! From the collaged envie, to the inbox card, in its own pocket, the the extras in their own mini-envie, and the extra papers and nice note! This swap deserves 5 stars! Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Thank you for the kind rating, it was a pleasure to make. Happy Easter!🐣

watercolorgirl rated for CO: Surreal Collage #2 on Mar 4, 2023
Comment: Thank you so much for your wonderful surreal collage. I agree too..they are difficult to come up with ideas and then find pictures that you need for the idea. They are also fun to see made. Hope you're doing well.
Response: Everything goes well here with me, thanks for asking. With these kind of collages I always start with an idea and see myself end up with something completely different, that’s the fun part for me. Thanks for your kind rating. Enjoy your weekend.
ktk8 rated for CO (Collage Only) - Cut 'em up! on Feb 16, 2023

Response: Thanks for the kind words and rating. I thought so too, Harry Styles dancing on a hand in a pink costume looks pretty surreal😂. Hope to swap with you again. Enjoy your weekend💌

Thank you for the gorgeous bookmark OMAE RAK! I collect bookmarks and will enjoy using this one! 😍 It’s so pretty!

Hoi Inge, wat een fijne post weer. Allereerst de envelop met hele leuke dierenpostzegels. Ben al aan het broeden hoe ze te gebruiken. Het boekje is super. Dat ga ik ook eens proberen te maken. En dan nog leuke verrassingen en een heerlijke brief. Wat fijn om te lezen dat alles goed gaat. Het blijft gek zo. We zijn alweer zolang zoveel thuis. Ik mis de aanloop en spontane bezoekjes. Sinds gisteren zijn de basisscholen weer open. Nu maar hopen dat de besmettelijke varianten de school niet vinden... dankjewel voor je fijne post en ik schrijf je binnenkort. Blijf gezond (en hopelijk snel de brief voor de vaccinatie). ❤️

Ohhh....I forgot to mention those wonderful animal stamps - just gorgeous!

Caithness on Feb 3, 2021:

Oh my goodness, a wonderful bundle of blue arrived on my doorstep. What a gorgeous folder it was presented in - love it and will try and make one of these. Thank you for such a delightful package of blue!

Ciska76 on Feb 3, 2021:

Ik kijk er naar uit 💕

loveretro on Jan 22, 2021:

Dankjewel, Inge


voor de lieve verjaardagswensen . de dag zal anders verlopen dan anders ... maar ja alles voor de goei zaak, hé ..... groetjes Monique x

RockyBeach on Jan 6, 2021:

Yes, the stamp fits in well! I just wish they had added more ink to the stamp so that you could see it a bit better. :)

RockyBeach on Jan 5, 2021:

Inge, thank you so much for your cute bird stamp postcard. I love it! The bird turned out great. Also in combination with the lovely colours. :) The postal machine put the cancellation stamp right onto the picture site, on the circle in the top right corner. How suitable!
