On April 15th I became 68. I'm living in Belgium, in Zonhoven, near Hasselt, with my husband Michel. I have one daughter Ellen, she's almost 41, I have no grandchildren.
I'm retired since July 1st 2014. I have a lot of time now for my hobbys: I make mosaics with glas, tiles, marble,.... Look at the avatar: I made this mosaic and it's called: "dare to dream", it was a card I received from a postcrosser in Canada, it was a splendid card to make a mosaic of.
I like travelling too. I have a Japanese friend living in Edogawai, near Tokyo. We are penpals for more then 54 years. I visited her in 2007 and she was in Belgium a few years ago. In May 2015 I visited her and her husband to celebrate our 50 years of friendship, and we had such a good time!
I like to receive all kind of cards: animals, especially dogs (favourite dogs: Westies and Border Collies) and cats, Hello Kitty cards, cards of Wild Animals, Unesco cards, trains, music and musical instruments, , ... But other cards are o.k. too!
And when it's X'mas time: I like to receive X'mas cards. And in April you can write me a Birthday card.
While I'm a Japan lover, I love Gotochi cards a lot and also Taiwan, Gotochi-style cards. If you send me that kind of card, I will send you some Belgian cards, or Belgian chocolates in exchange.
My favourite stamps: stamps of fauna and flora (if you have them: dogstamps, catstamps), trains, art, Christmas stamps, EUROPA stamps and stamps about music and musical instruments. I want to swap stamps too if you are interested.
