PLEASE NOTE: There is no regular postal worker in my area anymore, so somedays we get skipped . This means mail can be slower :(

I have an idea for an Alice in Wonderland themed Tea Room ( Dollhouse project) But am a little stuck on where and how to start.

About Me

Hello all!!!!

My name is Irene, but my friends call me Nala. Both names mean peace. Suites me just fine, as I hate fighting, war and negativity towards people.
I love creativity, as well as other people's as my own. Shy at first, though I can seem very chatty, it's just nerves kicking in. Sometimes I am a overthinker, while other times I live with my head in the clouds.

In september 2019, I became an Aunt. This is so special!!!! My niece is very sweet and I love spenting time with her.
I also like spending time with my family and friends.

In my free time I love crafting, listening to music ( and singing along very out of tune), snail mail, reading and wathing tv series.

My favorite activity is working on one of my dollhouse projects.I have a site where you can see my dollhouse projects. The link you can find at the top of the page.

~ Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light ~

I prefer to receive a variaty of themes when a swap states to send more than 1 postcard. I prefer non touristy over touristy ones, as I already have received a lot of those.
If you are sending me non touristy postcards, my abc might help. Blank animal postcards are always welcome. I also just started a collection of postcards to do with tea. So tea cups/ tea pots/ tea leaves ect.

Please no ad or zazzle or related postcards.

I don't collect stamps, so your most boring/ standerd stamp is fine with me.

Rather not receive

There are a few things I rather you wouldn't send me. As I won't use it and feel it's better to keep it for someone who would be happy with it.

  • Make up or skin products. ( I have very sensitive skin and am know with several allergies)
  • Coffee. ( I don't drink coffee and don't get many coffee drinking guests)
  • Fb's, slams, atc's, zines, ect.
  • Chocolate. ( I don't like it, I know that's very uncommen for a woman)

I am not a fan of the color red, for some reason it makes me nervous.

I do not celebrate any holidays or anything else, just so you know.

Dutch Mail Service

Please note that mail is not delivered on Sundays and Mondays. Also mail is not collected on Saterdays and Sundays.

If for some reason you think it's taking to long to reach me, please message me, we will work something out.

If you think my mail should have reached you and I have not contacted you yet, please do contact me, to work something out.

Due to new international gidelines, Dutch Mailservice has decided that non paper items ( goods) need to be send as a package with a custum form. So I won't be sending much non paper items, like teabags, as often as I used to, because of the extra costs to send these items.

Thank you so much for all the adorable Alice in Wonderland goodies! <3~ It's always so interesting to see things from other countries, and those stickers were simply amazing. I'll be keeping them forever in my sticker book. I really appreciate you sending them so promptly as well. You are too kind. Thanks again.
