    Hoi, mijn naam is joyce ben 40 jaar en ik woon vlakbij den bosch. Zoek wat gezellige penvriendinnen, liefst uit Nederland.
    Zou het leuk vinden als er iemand uit de buurt komt, waar ik misschien ooit eens koffie mee kan drinken of gezellig een planneravondje kan houden.

    Hi everyone! My name is Bibi, 23 years old and living in the Netherlands. I’m a bullet journaller, but I enjoy being creative with almost everything: photography, drawing, fabric. Lately I’ve been figuring out watercoloring and handlettering, which is pretty hard as a leftie 😂 If you want to contact me or see some of my stuff, you can find me on IG: @bbulletjournal

    Hi, I’m Yuka from Japan and looking for pen pals from all over the world.
    (Especially interested in Malaysia, UK, Finland, Holland, Spain, Italy, France and Germany).

    I grew up in Midwest and Westcoast of U.S.A. and now living in Japan for more than 15 years.
    I speak and write English fluently but I’d love to have pen pals with little English skill, too.

    I love autumn colors such as brown, orange, green, red and vintage-look of my paper art.
    I also love nature cutouts such as animals, leaves, nuts, trees, and flowers.
    So, it’ll be great if I can find pen pals who like them also.
    Of course, I can always include rainbow of colors of washi tape, stickers, Japanese stamps, washi paper for outgoing mails if you like.

    I love arts and crafts and ‘been an interior designer and a jewelry designer for many years.
    I’ve been worked with paper, clay, metals, woods, gems, stones, and fabrics.
    For the love of stationaries, I’ve been addicted to trying different types of paper, ink, pens, pencils, stickers, glue and anything to use to create art pieces.

    I’ve been exchanging letters from old friends in US and Japan until I graduated from college.
    Now, I’m in love with mail art and want to find a mail art lover as a my first pen pal!
    It’ll be nice to exchange mail art collages or nifty findings from your area 4~6 times a year.
    May not be so often but long and strong friendship will be nice.
    I don’t have PC or I-phone of my own so if you are interested, please leave a comment on my Twitter account.
    @KOOA_official
    We can exchange address there.
    Thank you Café Analog, for providing this great place.

        Hello, Simona! It’s Yuka.
        I am so sorry for my late reply.
        It wasn’t in English at all, or didn’t have my name that I thought your message was not for me.
        I’ve just did an automatic translation on the internet.
        I’m so happy that you have similar taste!
        To contact me, please contact Desiree of CafeAnalog on this site.
        She can give you my e-mail address to reach me.
        Can you write any in English at all?
        If not I’ll use internet translation again.
        Thank you and I hope this message reaches you.
        I apologize again for not understanding this reply system well.

  5. By Tara on

    Hello!
    My name is Tara and I live in California, USA. I use to collect stickers and journal when I was a kid, but after I got into university I stopped. Now that I am working, I rediscovered my love for all things stationery. My favorite items to use are stickers, washi tape, and rubber stamps. I would love to have a pen pal or two to write and exchange happy mail with.
    I use to have an email pen pal in China when I was in 5th grade as a school assignment but after the assignment was over we decided to keep that up until I was in my first year of university. I even got a chance to meet her when I went to visit China. It was a wonderful experience and I would like a chance to have that again. I have two dogs and an English budgie.
    Thank you Cafe Analog for creating a space like this for us to have!

    Hello hello! I’m originally from Illinois, but I currently live in Cleveland, OH. I’m 23, and I’ve loved stationery since I was a little kid. I collected stickers when I was in grade school and always couldn’t bear to use my favorites. I got back into stationery and journaling last August. I started bullet journaling, but when I got more busy, I switched to a Traveler’s notebook. I love collecting rubber stamps from different artists/small businesses. I temporarily disabled my journal account, but feel free to follow and DM me on my personal IG @gracelokxu.

    If you’re looking for a pen pal or someone to exchange happy mail with, shoot me a message! There aren’t any stationery stores here, so my selection is pretty limited to online purchases, but I’d love to exchange items/papers that I don’t use much.

    Cheers,
    Grace

    Hello:) My name is Idalia. I am from the U.S.A. I have just recently purchased a journal and have been real impressed with what i am seeing on Instagram when it comes to some of the people I am following. If anyone is looking for a pen pal please let me know. I am also looking to see what kinds of thing people write in their journals. Just ideas. I really want to start journaling and I am hesitant to start. I used to have a Pen Pal I write to since i was 10 years old and since Facebook been around and she found me there she no longer writes to me and I miss that. I also love receiving snail mail and I feel that is a lost art to some degree. I love stationary, STAMPS and stickers. I love Cafe-Analog and feel real lucky to have found them. I have my eye on a few items.

    Hoi Allemaal!

    Dit weekend heb ik een heel weekend met goed gezelschap aan tafel gezeten onder de noemer “craft en schaft”… Heerlijk aan de slag met vele soorten papier, journals, washi, stempels, type- & naaimachine, verf plus lekker eten en drinken. Ook een ABC kwam ter sprake.

    Nu zoek ik iemand (in Nederland) die met mij het hele alfabet wil posten. Ben jij iemand die zo’n afspraak wil maken en met leuke 1-zegel snails wil schrijven met mij? Dat zou ik super vinden!

    Ik houd van schrijven met vulpen, rommelmarktschatten, typemachines, hergebruik, retro, textiel, knopen. (Op Instagram heet ik miss_steek). Verder ben in 37 jaar, moeder van Loek, vrouw van Bas, docent Beeldende Vorming en heb ik altijd meer ideeën dan tijd.

      Hallo Krista, Hier nog een verwoed verzamelaarster van antieke knopen die ik dan weer verwerk in nieuwe projecten. Schrijven doe ik vanaf dag 1 al met een vulpen kan helemaal niet fatsoenlijk schrijven met een balpen 🙂 Verder struin ik graag rommelmarkten af en ben dan zo blij als een klein kind als ik weer iets vind waar ik weer iets mee kan. Ben niet meer getrouwd heb 2 kinderen een dochter die in Zwolle woont en daar de ArteZ dit jaar afrond als het goed is. En een zoon die gaat voor leraar Engels, deze heeft nog een lange weg te gaan doet nu MBO onderwijs assistent en daarna HBO Engels, Pabo zit er niet in voor hem hij heeft ontzettend moeite met Nederlands en Wiskunde maar middels de weg die hij nu bewandeld kan het ook naar hij zelf zegt.

      Wat is de bedoeling precies van het alfabet posten?

        Hi Ingeborg,

        leuk dat je reageert! Ik dacht: we sturen elkaar eerst post met iets met een A (apen, appeltaart, antartica oid) daarna met een B als thema… Ik vind het namelijk leuk om in thema’s post te maken. Inmiddels ben ik ook met het cafe analog project: alfabet of me begonnen. Als jij ‘gewoon’ eerst creatieve post wil versturen houd ik mijzelf ook van harte aanbevolen hoor!

    Hoi allemaal,
    Mijn naam is Shana. Ik ben 29 jaar uit België.
    Ik ben opzoek naar een nederlandstalige pennevriend(in). Ik heb enkele trouwe snailmailers uit het buitenland, maar ik schrijf toch ook eens graag in mijn eigen taal. Dus als er iemand zin heeft om mijn nieuwe penpal te worden… graag! Ik hou van postzegels, artjournalling, tekenen, snail mail, herfst, sneeuw, eco groen en doen,…
    Groetjes

    Hello everybody! What a great idea with this bulletin board! My name is Sanna and I live in Sweden. I am (of course😄) a statoneryaddict and I love my stamps, washis and stickers that I use in my standard TN:s for both planning and memoryjournaling. I also have a thing for everything with flowers and birds😜. I like to share some of my pages on Instagram (@skrivstilar) and it is so great to with the planner/jounaling community on IG. I would love to find a new (or a few!) penpal to exchange both thoughts and paper goodies with.

      Hi Sanna,

      Maybe we can become penpals? I live in the Netherlands and I love the nature/flower/bird theme too. I also love fairytales and really old paper 🙂
      I was in university and learned Swedish, so for me it would be great if we could write in Swedish. I’m so in love with your country.
      You can find me as @maureenastrid on Instagram. Maybe you can take a peek and see what you think.
