liezebetje(or Els) is a member from Netherlands . She has been a member for over 1 year (518 days).
Hello, my name is Els. Born in 1972 and living in the northern of Netherlands in a small village. 20 Years ago I graduated as an apothecary (assistant) and still employed as such.
I am married with Piet and together we have four childeren: Hannah (10), David (9), Silas (5) and Gideon (2).
The reason why I created an account on postcrossing.com is my son Silas. He always wants to unlock our mailbox to see if there is a postcard for him. Of course, I must disappoint him often, because a 4-year-old doesn't receive post daily. I also think it is a beautiful way to maintain and improve my English and German language and it helps me to expand my stamp collection.
I'm quite a busy person and have many hobbies. I love: cooking, baking cakes, read, listen and make music and handicrafts (knitting, embroidery, tinkering with the children). My husband and I we play in the local windband. He is drummer and I play trombone.
I hope to receive cards and stamps from many different countries. Not only for the getting, but also for the educational. I think my children can learn a lot from postcrossing: topography, language, culture and being interested in other people.
It would be nice to receive cards:
* with fairies or angels on it or
* Anne Geddes
* birthday cards for Silas (his birthday is on 30 August)
* Christmas cards in December.
* If you could add some nice used stamps that would be great!
Thanks for reading my profile and good luck with the writing of the card you send me.
