About Heleen...

Hi dear Postcrosser!

My name is Heleen, I live and work close to Amsterdam.
Besides two adolescent kids, four cavias (guinea pigs) joined our vegetarian family, from 2012 to 2018. From 2019 to February 2022 the house mouse named Troy was with us. And now we are friends to a Haflinger pony :-)

I love drawing/painting, music, languages and the world. And love nature: especially birds, weird animals (like okapi and platypus) and trees.
I used to travel a lot but now work and a busy family life restrain me from that.
Postcrossing to me is ‘travelling’ without leaving home (except for the letterbox :-)

I'm happy with any card, please without envelope. And looking forward to reading your message on the back side!

Don't search my postcards wall to see if I already have the card you want to send, any double is o.k.: every card is unique by it's sender and journey !

If you need a suggestion about the picture on the card / stamps, favourite subjects are:

* Animals living in your country,
especially birds and unusual animals (like platypus, echidna, corvidae). Though all animals are welcome, whether walking, swimming, flying or creeping, from insects and smaller creatures to mammals!

* Bridge, Lighthouse

* Chess (especially the Horse)

* Cleaners: in- or outdoors, street-sweeper

* Hand/self made card
Draw, paint, collage, needlework, whatever you want to do!
In case you'd like to draw/paint/make a collage of your favourite animal, see my call for mail art, where your creative result might be posted:

* Dragon! I was born in the Year of the Dragon. A Dragon postcard or postage stamp makes my day

* So will do the (Year of the) Mouse / Rat (and other Zodiac animals)

* Mills: all types of windmills, incl. wind turbines

* Music ! Musical instruments from your country, musicians, music notes

* Reading or writing people (including reading animals :-) )

* Political cartoons

* Science

* Illustrations e.g. Blue Cats, Inge Löök old ladies, Fiep Westendorp or other great illustrations from your country

* Postbox / postmen / post offices / postal transport: anything which has to do with mail

Nederlandse PC'ers: een ansichtkaart met een bezienswaardigheid van je woonplaats (en als 't kan, de plaatsnaam op de voorkant) vind ik leuk! :-)

Thank you, and Happy Postcrossing!

And Peace,
