About Me

Hello and thanks for reading my profile in advance :)

One thing: if you send me any postcard or notecard then I would LOVE IT if you write something on/it it. I collect written postcards so in this way I can add them to my collection :) Thanks soooo much in advance. You don't have to write a lot, just a 'greetings from' is perfectly alright :)

My name is Joanne and I'm in my 30's. I live in The Netherlands in a small town in the Northeastern part and I love it here, it's quiet and cosy and there's lots of nature.

I have been a member of Swapbot before but haven't done anything on here for a very long time so I decided to make a new profile since my old profile doesn't exist anymore. (https://www.swap-bot.com/user:fee90) I'm not sure what happened to my old profile, it has been deleted. As far as I remember I had good ratings, all 5's. I have asked for help to merge the profiles but haven't heard anything yet (July '23 and November '23). If you have any questions about this, please send me a message! I have been an active memper in all kinds of swaps on FB and have been a Postcrosser since 2013. I always send!!!

One month in, and I'm so excited and addicted. I love paper stuff and stickers and my new journey on here has rekindled that love! I'm totally hooked again, haha!

I speak Dutch, English and can read Swedish and German, so write me in one of those languages :)

I love postcards and stickers and I love to craft things. I also love to read and try to read as many books as possible. I read multipal books at the same time because then I can choose the right book for my mood. I love cooking too, so a great recipe is always welcome.

Thanks in advance for sending me something, I'm already excited!

Things I love

  • flowers/plants
  • holographic/glitter everything
  • colors pink, yellow and orange, pastel colors
  • fruits (esp. oranges, limes, lemons etc.)
  • cats
  • birds
  • whales/orcas
  • mice/voles
  • foxes
  • raccoons
  • beautiful stamps
  • reading/books
  • cute illustrations
  • mermaids
  • (bumble)bees
  • spring
  • stickers
  • candles
  • kawaii

Postcard themes I love

-- I always prefer my postcards written, even if the swap doesn't require it. So, if you want, I would love you to write on the postcard you send me. Even just a little greeting would be lovely. So, I can always remember where (and from who) my postcard came from. But of course, if you don't want to that's fine too, it's not a necessity, just a wish :) Thanks in advance! --

  • religious things
  • teacher/reward/planner stickers
  • kids stickers - don't like them and can't use them
  • handmade cards, unless it's for a swap

Mail

I'm not sure how long my mail takes to reach you, but if it doesn't arrive in 4-6 weeks please message me so we can figure something out! Please don't rate me down before you contact me :) Thank you!

Recently I discovered that mailboxes in my area aren't emptied every day (maybe because it's a bit remote for Dutch standards haha) so the date on a cancellation stamp may not match the day that I sent the mail out. Just so you know :) I always send, I promise!!

Thanks a lot for sending me your art :)
