About Me


Mail is possible again. But be patient, it can take some time to reach you. If you didn’t receive my mail after six weeks, please contact me.

STAY SAFE in this crazy times 😷🙏❤

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.

So lets have some fun swapping💌

HANDMADE POSTCARD : If you think it is better to sent your handmade postcard in an envelope, even if the swap tells you to sent naked, it is okay for me. I will not rate you down for this. For me it is much more important that it arrives in good condition. Just write a happy note on the back to make me smile 😉 Thanks for reading this


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.

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

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.


special beers from around the world (ipa's). If you want you can send me labels from beer bottles.

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.

Comment: ❤️🧡💛 A fantastic card and envelope. I'm really impressed. First, the mixed media envelope is so "mail art". I carefully opened it so I can save it for inspiration. Then the presentation of your ATC is beautifully done. I love that the ATC is presented on larger cardstock and can be removed from the card. A really pretty arty valentine ATC. I am so fortunate to receive it. Thank you so much IS/Singske.💛🧡❤️
Response: Thanks again for such a kind rating, It was fun making it for you. ♥️
Comment: What an absolute delight this was to receive in my mailbox today! Both the envelope and flipbook inside were so well crafted! I was quite giddy with excitement opening it all up, thanks so much for this bit of mail happiness!
Response: Glad it reached you well and made you happy. Thanks for your kind rating and heart💌

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). ❤️

Caithness on Feb 4, 2021:

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!

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!
