Comment: Bedankt voor je prachtige waterval flipbook. Ik zou zelf ook eens wat vaker mijn gelliplate tevoorschijn moeten halen om mooie prints te maken voor mijn projectjes.
Response: Fijn dat je de flipboek mooi vind. De laatste tijd gebruik ik wel vaker gelliplate monoprints, die ik op dat moment maak voor de swap. Leuk om te doen en leuk om nieuwe dingen uit te proberen. Bedankt voor je hartje.
Comment: Received the PC I will forward it on so it can continue its journey home.
I have been to the Netherlands, twice. I love it! it is my favorite places to go! I love the people, I love the environment, I love the statues, I love the squares, I love the flea markets, I love the easy going atmosphere, I love everything about the Netherlands. Rotterdam is one of my favorite places and I will be definitely going back, I think its next year that we are going back. I actually am hoping to stay there for 6 months sometime. I have family there and that is where my family history is from and it surely is in my blood. Maybe we'll run across each other when I'm there next time😃
Response: Thanks for the heart.
Always special if someone has been to my country and my city where I live. If you come again, I would love to meet you.
Comment: Good day, Mieke! Thank you so much for the lovely textile pocket you created for me. I love all the little snippets of lace and fabric you used, set off perfectly by the background you created. And those sweet bird peeking out from each side--very whimsical!
Response: It was fun to make. I would never make something like that out of myself and I enjoy learning new techniques through this kind of swaps and still using things from myself. Very nice that you can let us participate in this type of swaps. And I thought the birds were fun, that's why I added them.
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful prints. I also love the colours of cherry blossoms. I actually love everything about them, other than my allergy to them. I hope you have a wonderful spring and have fun printing!
Response: Your welcome. Annoying to be allergies, but you can also enjoy it a bit
Comment: LOVE IT!!! My favorite part is the papers you used to make the folio. And the vintage playing cards - I have a 'large' collection of vintage cards so these are a wonderful addition! Thank you for a beautiful swap.
Response: Glad you love it. It was so nice to make it for you. Glad the cards are vintage pieces ;-) (I could not see that well).
Comment: I hope Ive not caused too many troubles with my pokemon daftness, thank you so much for the wonderful envie of lovely things, perfect without planning to be for a small art journal project I am currently collecting for. I have just started swapping again in the last few months and am missing my paper fluff to fill a journal with. Great swap.
Response: No, I have not had any problems with my son because I had taking the pokemon cards ;-), he is a bit older. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the post card. I did actually like it very much. It's never going to win the prize for most beautiful post card ever but there's a kind of authenticity about it. It shows the village as it is, where people live and not 'tarted' up for tourists. Thank you so much for it. Best wishes.
Response: That's completely right. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Hi Mieke, thank you for the great gifts! I love the snowglobe and the chocolate. Thanks for the extra ephemera and stickers as well. Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Annabelle xoxoxo
Response: Your welcome. Glad you have it so fast. later I thought that it is in australia summer and that the chocolate could melt, fortunately everything went well. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: I'm so sorry to be late in rating your beautiful glue book! I really liked your choices for the book and you made me look at them in a new way. I've never thought about creating with an image that fills an entire page--I like it! Beautifully done cover, too--I love maps. Thanks so much.
Response: So happy you like the glue book. I doubted a bit. By letting the photo speak for itself, I find a challenge. The simpler the more powerful the image.
Comment: Ten hearts, if I could!!! I am thrilled. Thank you so very much! From outside decorations, is this done with those rubber stamps? And, I shall frame "The Gipsy". It will go nicely with an old picture of "Girl with a Cat". I love all.
Response: Glad you like it, your welcome. And thank you very very much for the rating ;-).
Comment: I finally received this today! I feel like it’s been hiding at the PO but just glad it made it safe and sound! Thank you for the extra pages - I’m sure they will find a good home in a near future project!
Response: Glad you received the journal, its always exciting or a journal overtakes the other side.Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Hi Mieke! Your leaf prints are really pretty. Yours came out so nicely. I really struggled with mine and had to do SO many just to have enough to send! Thanks for printing them on different papers--I can't wait to use them!
Comment: Wat een mooie punches/die cuts, Mieke. Leuk om al die verschillende papiertjes uit te proberen he. Jouw veertjes zijn echt de allermooiste, beetje jaloers op. Maar heel blij met degene die je mij stuurde. Ik gebruik ook altijd de negatieven, dus daar ben ik ook erg blij mee!
Response: Fijn dat je er blij mee bent. Die veer is inderdaad erg leuk, gekocht in nederland en volgens mij ontworpen door Birgit Koopsen.
Comment: Hoihoi! Dankjewel voor je envelop met vrouwgerelateerde ephemera! Sorry, ben zelf wat laat (maar niet té) met versturen door kat- en ezeltrouble. Maar het ligt klaar voor na het weekend dus duurt niet lang meer!
Response: Hoi, geen probleem hoor. Bedankt voor het hartje.
Comment: WOW!!! What a beautiful vintage collection of ephemeral Women! Thank you so very much for such beauties - if only these images could talk and tell us about their meaning/lives/reference! And is the beautiful stamped image a self-portrait? Grazie!
Response: Your welcome! And the stamped image is indeed me. I make it by my self from a photo. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Wow! That's really weird. I send to you. You send right back. At first I thought there was a mistake. LOL. But, now that I am all caught up ... Thank you! This round was supposed to feature a pocket but I'm okay without. It's so confusing, isn't it? Thank you- I like your collage. And thanks for adding to the cover. Update: Oh yeah, I see, you didn't have to use the pocket. I actually don't like the pocket prompt either. No, no. It's okay to return my journal to me. It was surprising because that was my first time in this mini handmade art journal swap and I wasn't expecting to get it back so soon. It's funny how that works. I did really love your art contribution. Thank you.
Response: Sorry for your journal send back to you. I will never do it again ;-). I am not so good in pockets, sorry about that, in the swap text stoot that you can choose something else. thanks for the heart.
Comment: This is a fun birds envie! How did you do the trees? I'm not very familiar with the gelly plate - can you do a kind of photo transfer with it? The trees look like a photo. Thanks for this swap!
Response: Yes, it is a transfer on the gelli plate with a page from a magazine. First some paint on the gelli plate, than the magazine, some rubbing, take the magazine off and do a next layer paint. And than you can print it on paper. Its very fun to do this. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Received the postcard and a great bag of stamps, thank you very much. I couldn't help but admire your temperature on the PC, our temperature today, June 7, is 15°C - I think I need to go to the Netherlands 😀😀😀. Enjoy your sunshine, our sunshine seems to have gone on a holiday.
Response: You are welcome here ;-). Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Hello Mieke â˜º I do like your postcard very much! It is so cool the way the silhouettes of the people are filled with the perfect image of birds in the air over the water and beach. It looks very striking. Thanks for a very nice swap!
Response: Glad you liked it. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: What a beautiful card I love love love it, so unique. Iâ€™m going to have to look up what it says or ask my cousin to tell me next time I talk to him, itâ€™s a great card thank you very much and thank you for the stuff inside of it as well.
Comment: Your package has arrived! I'm saving it for Christmas! I'll rerate after 12/25. Thank you!
Update- Thank you so much for the wonderful goodies! I love the magnets and can't wait to use them! Merry Christmas!
Response: Glad you received it. Enjoy.
Update: Glad you like all the presents. I make/buy and send it you with plesure.
Comment: This is the most wonderful envie I have received for this series of swaps! I really like the book page snowflakes with the bits of paint. I had not thought of doing that and am going to try it this weekend. Also adore the string of gold stars. Everything will find its way into my Christmas art journal. Many thanks!
Response: Thanks you like it. Again merry Christmas. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Hoi Mieke, bedankt voor een hele leuke swap! Ik heb alles meteen opengemaakt, zo kan ik aan de slag met alle mooie spulletjes! Dank je wel, dat mini strengetje met lampjes was wel heel erg schattig, zeg! Enne, Happy Holidays!
Response: Bedankt, ja die lampjes zijn schattig he. Bedankt voor het hartje.
Comment: Dank je wel vanuit "het verre Capelle a/d IJssel" voor je gezellige envelop met Franse items. Ik moet wel even in mijn geheugen graven voor de herinneringen, maar wij zijn met de kinderen daar ook wel eens geweest. Frankrijk is een aantal jaar een geweldige bestemming geweest met de vouwwagen.
Ik had wel even moeite met het ontcijferen van je zelfportret, maar hij is leuk!
En ik reken me helemaal rijk met de aandelen ;-)
Response: Fijn dat je de envelop goed heb ontvangen, na zo'n lange reis ;-). Ook wij zijn dit jaar met de vouwwagen gegaan. Voor wat het zelfportret betreft, ik was me wat aan het vervelen en moest even wat tijd overbruggen en heb allemaal gekke foto's genomen en in een app op de telefoon bewerkt. Bedankt voor het hartje.
Comment: Mieke!! It is here! I lOOOVe this so much!! Beautiful remembrance of the circus!! Thank you so much!!! â™¥â™¥
Edited 09/14/2017: Dear Mieke, I just received your original envie. It is beautiful too!!! Thank you so much!
Response: Hi, glad you received it finaly. Thanks for the heart. (I am afraid you received a second one, because you don't received this one so far. ;-)
Comment: What an amazing collection of ephemera! Every single thing you sent is fantastic. I love them all, and I can't wait to find great uses for them! I especially love the painting and the sponge!! Thank you!
Response: Glad you like it. I like also the sponge very much. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for an interesting book title journal page. It would be interesting to know how the Arends-oog books compare to Westerns written in the US. The extra book pages are great too. Thanks.!
Response: Glad you like it. I don't know of the Arendsoog books compare with westerns in the US. I think so, i have read a few translated in the past.
Comment: Hoi Mieke,
Wat is het artikel over de luchtvaart boeiend en grappig! Dankjewel voor de fotos, de twee postkaarten (Paris en Niewjaar) en de twee vogels (kalkoen en groenvink), die je speciaal voor mij hebt uitgezocht. Bijzonder grappig vind ik die blaadjes over putdeksels. Putdeksels, hÃ¡! Fijn, dat je het envelop hebt gedekoreerd. Ik ben er blij mee.
Response: Fijn dat je er blij mee bent. Ik heb een heel oud boekje vol met putdeksels ;-), vind ze best grappig.
Comment: Got the post card today! Sherry sure picked a cute PC to travel around the world! Love the polar bears! I'm excited to try that tea you sent! I will have to drink it tonight! And thank you for the beautiful stickers!!! Wonderful mail in my box today!!!
ETA: The tea was lovely! I really enjoyed it! Thank you!
Response: Your welcome. Hope you like the tea. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Op instagram zag ik deze prachtige envelop en stiekem hoopte ik dat ie voor mij zou zijn. Vandaag lag ie vertopt tussen de post na terugkeer van vakantie. Heel attent van je om hem in een extra envelop te stoppen, ik heb de indruk dat ik daardoor nog meer prachtig papier van je heb gekregen. Ik ben nog lang niet klaar met al het moois te bekijken maar ik wilde je zo snel mogelijk laten weten dat ik HEEL ERG blij ben met alles. Heel veel ðŸ’™ðŸ’œðŸ’›â¤ðŸ’šðŸ’•ðŸ’™ðŸ’œðŸ’›â¤ðŸ’šðŸ’•ðŸ’™ðŸ’œðŸ’›â¤ðŸ’šðŸ’•
Response: Fijn dat je de envelop mooi vind (ik vond hem ook mooi, anders zet ik het niet op instagram) en natuurlijk de inhoud. Bedankt voor het hartje!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful package full of gorgeous red goodies. I know what you mean about finding it hard to stop - I had the same issue with mine. Once you start looking you realize how much you actually have, lol. I loved sorting through it all and look forward to putting it to good use ðŸ˜
Response: Glad you like it. Thanks for the heart and rating!
Comment: Received the RED sticker shock.... ( with a HUGE group of other mail from the Netherlands that were mailed almost a month ago.....must have been sitting somewhere.....) Thank you love this post card.....
Response: Yes, I think so ;-) Luckily you received it all. Thanks for the heart en glad you like it.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful journal page - I received it yesterday on Valentine's Day, it was a perfect Valentines Gift! Thank you too for the Journal pages xx Happy Swapping - see you in the mail ...
Response: Glad you like it, and indeed valantines day was the best day to received this one. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Oh wow Mieke, thank you for a great mailarty envie filled with such cool punched dragonflies. Where did you get that one? I absolutely love it! The ATC was also very cool. Thanks for making this a great mailday! Groetjes Barbara
Response: Your welcome! Bedankt voor het hartje. De mal dragonflies is van sizzix. Dit merk heeft altijd heel mooie mallen.
Comment: Dankjewel voor de theeÃ«n Mieke! Dat marmottenzakje is echt Ã¼bercute. En je kaart is ook al zo mooi! Wat heerlijk dat je bij Elle Aime kunt knutselen in gezelschap; ben helemaal met je eens dat dat heerlijk is om te doen! Helaas is er niet zoiets in Utrecht :(
Response: Graag gedaan hoor. Bedankt voor de hart!
Comment: WOW, wat een geweldige kaart, dank je wel. Hoe heb je die achtergrond gemaakt? Prachtig. En je hebt een stempel van een postkaart achterkant? Jaloers !!
Response: Bedankt voor je compliment en het hart! De achtergrond is een monoprint (met de gelli plate) waarvan een groot blad is ingedrukt in verf en hierna afgedrukt op papier.
Een tijdje geleden zag ik in Rotterdam de ansichtkaartstempel hangen. Als je geÃ¯nteresseerd bent kan ik kijken of hij nog verkrijgbaar is. stuur maar een pm als je interesse hebt.
Comment: Hi Mieke! I loved everything about this swap! Thank you very much for the nice assortment of ephemera. I especially like the bus ticket, the maps, and the old photos. The stamps are awesome and I really like the clear envelope you used to hold everything together. Thank you so much for everything! Happy Swapping! Valerie
Comment: Thank you for the delightful PC! I really like how you did the background, and the great b/w figure. Makes me smile.
On a side note, the international stamp you used also made me smile. Looks like a hot dog wrapped in a U.S, flag. An editorial comment perhaps? . . . grin! ;-) I really couldn't resist mentioning this - it's just to perfect at the moment . . .
Response: Yes, the stamps are pretty grazy. I like them too. Thanks for the heart en the compliments!
Comment: Got the postcard today, it is very pretty (shame now I will have to send it on it's way lol) Thank you so much for including an nice extra postcard :D And I loved the idea you had of writing the current date and weather on yours, so I did the same under your message!
Response: Thanks for the heart! That date and weather I found a good idea because of the traveling character of the PC ;-)
Comment: thank you so much, green coconut teas were new to me and for that i give you a heart even i didnt like that all teas didnt have envies/sachets with the teas name on it like in greenfield teabags, it says what tea it is.
Response: Thank you for the hart! I hope you enjoy the coconut tea. For the next time I will pay attention to the teabags and what tea it is.
Comment: Mieke, when I got your envie today I thought that was fast for a resend. Then I realized it was a different swap. Great envies and thanks for all the little goodies. The kids I teach in Sunday school will love it all. Blessings.
Response: Hi Coleen, this is the swap from the resend. Maby you get it twice. Or maby the postman is very very fast. Was there a envelop (rather narrow) with large dots on it? Anyway, glad you like it.
Comment: Thanks so very much for the wonderful envie of goodies. I have to laugh that you also sent a RV color page and the girl on it, looks like me when I wear my glasses. I LOVE IT. All the goodies are wonderful - thanks....
Comment: Thank you for my beautiful and generous "tea time" swap! I love this garland and it will fit right in my kitchen! Thank you for the teas too. I will drink them while contemplating all the surfaces on the garland. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Fine that you enjoy both. Thanks for the rating and heart.
Comment: Thank you for such a beautiful and thoughtful folio. The color scheme and vintage bits were just perfect! I love the little labels and tags. I know I will be able to use them in my art projects, especially Documented Life. I also love how you put the picture strips on the spine. When they made a full picture after pulling out the ephemera, it was a such cool effect. I also love the mini art journal - what a great way to use the side flap! I have an art class coming up and I think I will use this for my journal. Thank you so very much!
Response: Glad you like it all. It was hard to send it to you, I love it ;-) and really like to make it.. That picture strips on the spine was a little surprise and i was wondering how you would find this. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Hi Mieke, super bedankt voor je prachtige flipbook! Ik vind hem echt geweldig, super mooi gedaan, het was een waar cadeautje :). xoxo
Thank you so much for the gorgeous flipbook. I love it, you did such an amazing job, it was a such a lovely gift.
Response: Fijn dat je het mooi vond. Bedankt voor de rating en hartje.
Comment: Dankjewel Mieke! De kaart vind ik erg mooi en de thee ruikt erg lekker :-) Ik ga de komende dagen eens proeven wat je me allemaal gestuurd hebt. Dankjewel en veel plezier met swappen. Groetjes Henny
Comment: L.O.V.E! The wrapping paper you chose for inspiration is awesome....I can see why you love it. I love all of the prints...especially the one with the Asian (?) writing...so cool. Love the gold accents. Thank you for such a fun and creative surprise!
Response: Your Welcome! And i love it to experiment this way. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Haha, what a mighty man! He can lift a heavy stone with his physical strength but he is not intelligent or socially capable enough to switch on the washing machine by himself. Which do you think it's about, him not knowing how to operate the machine or not knowing when it's time to do the laundry? Thank you, it is a very interesting postcard :)
Response: I think it's time to do the laundry ;-)))).
Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Ahh... the final envelope from you for this series... I've enjoyed each and every one you've sent me and this one is no exception! Thank you very much for your creative envelopes and your gifts! :-)
Response: Your welcome. The papers from the envelope are from a dutch magazine cold flow. Is a great magazine with lots of illustrations and very fine package paper.
Comment: Grandioos, ik had de belastingenveloppe niet herkend tot ik het las. Dankjewel, hij is echt prachtig geworden! Dank ook voor de extra's, ik hou van oude foto's en boekpagina's. Helemaal geslaagd dus! Fijne 2e kerstdag nog...
Response: Graag gedaan. Als je zin heb in een prive swap, ik heb nog meer oude foto's/boekpagina's. Laat het maar weten via een pm. In ieder geval een fijn uiteinde en een goed 2016.
Comment: Thanks again for pretty envelopes! I'll update my rating :) 01/01 UPDATE: Everything is perfect for me, thank you again and again :) I love your altered art very much! Happy and prosperous new year! :)
Comment: Thank you, I'll update after Christmas:) 01/01 UPDATE: I loved the Christmas tree ornament and have hanged it on the tree! And thanks for the PC and other ephemera stuff, so coool everything! :)
Comment: Hello Mieke! Thank you so much for the huge envelope of stuff! I love the stamps you used and the ephemera. I like how some are crazy busy and some are just one stamp per page. THank you.Thank you.
Response: Your welcome. It was nice to do! Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Hi! Thanks! I know I'll love it, so here's a heart :) I'll also come back for updating after Christmas. Very nice greeting card, too :) 01/01 UPDATE: Very exciting assortment of crafting and collection stuff, thank you very much! Happy New Year! :)
Response: Your welcome. Enjoy it in december and i hope you like it. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: I so liked the Flow magasine goodies you enclosed with all the other fabulous little surprises. My daughter in the UK send me the Flow magazine from time to time and I simply love it! It's too expensive with our terrible exchange rate to buy overseas publications. Thank you too for the very cute pockets that you made. Alles van die beste vanuit Suid Afrika. :)
Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart. Maybe we can do a private swap for some flow goodies. I have a subscription on flow. Let me know if you want that.
Comment: Hello Mieke! Thank you so much for the very interesting package of goodies! I love the German text and the map - the little cards and photos. What fun! I like your self portrait stamp too. That's nice! I've been thinking of making one of myself - maybe now I'm inspired. Thanks again and thanks for participating in the swap!
Response: I'm glad you like the package. I also like the stamp very much. It's nice to have and if you do it right, then it seems really on you. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Hello, today was a Good Mail Day thanks all to you! Your ephemera ATC was very artful, and I liked that you sent the "negative" space paper, too. I often use mine in mail art as well. Many thanks also for all of the wonderful ephemera that you enclosed. I can't wait to use it!
Response: Your welcome. I find the negative space papers also so beautiful and find it a waste to throw it away.
Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Hi Mieke!
Thank you for the neat postcard you created for me! That bear is just adorable and it was nice that you chose Mozart as your historical image--I love classical music. your little orange stickers really added a nice touch. Wonderful creation!
Response: Your welcome. I did it with plesure for you. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: As always, your swaps are wonderful, even the envelope! I enjoy all the children's themed items, the old ads are charming and the vintage photos and postcard are just my style! Thank you very much.
Response: Glad you like it, i did it with plesure.
Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for such lovely happy mail. I loved all of the little printed scraps you sent and the James Bond ATC. The envelope was beautiful too; I hated to open it (but was obviously glad that I did.) Thank you!
Response: Glad you like it. I like the James Bond ATC too. Thank you for the heart and the rating.
Comment: thank you soooo much mieke everything you sent is what i love! :) i think you must know me very well. i love all of the papers you sent me and of course the teas, thanks so much i love pickwick and you sent some of my favourite flavours melon and peach :)
Response: Yeah, indeed. We learn to know each other, so swapping.
I've looked here in the stores for the Pickwick tea that you love. But it is very difficult to buy here peach tea, she's hard to get more ;-)).

Comment: Hoi! Dankjewel voor de leuke post die ik een paar dagen geleden al ontvangen heb. Sorry voor mijn late rating, maar ik had het zoooo druk en wilde je post eerst goed bekijken en een leuk bedankje kunnen schrijven. Vandaar. :)
Er zitten veel leuke dingen bij en ik kan er zeker wat mee! :)
Response: Hoi, Graag gedaan hoor! Fijn dat de spullen die ik je zond bevallen. Hoop dat je ze kan gebruiken. Bedankt voor het hartje.
Comment: thank you for the teas mieke! i LOVED the pickwick melon. pickwick is actually my favourite tea brand, we don't have them here but when i am in hotels in europe i always take a few home with me, hehe. the bookmark is gorgeous; thank you! i love the design of those teas. :)
Response: Hi Naomi, Your welcome. The other tea is also lovely. I will look for some tea for you when we are swapping the next time.
Comment: Hoi Mieke!!!
Wat een prachtige envelop!!
Ik had niet door dat dit al het tweede deel was. Dus ik dacht huh? Waar zijn de 20 cut outs?
Suf van mij hÃ¨. Maar dat komt ws omdat ik deel 1 nog niet ontvangen heb.
Echt heel heel erg mooi!!!
Liefs van Ivy

Superleuke spulletjes en het meeste ga ik gebruiken voor mijn volgende project - een smashbook van mijn reis naar New York volgend jaar! Past perfect! ðŸ˜Š Merry Christmas!!!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful winter reindeer ornament. I have lots of reindeer on my tree so he should fit right into the herd. :) Wonderful mono print work -- the colors are great and I love how the white fell around his antlers and belly. I will treasure him. Here's wishing you a lovely holiday season and a fabulous 2015! <3<3<3
Response: Great you liked the reindeer, me too. It was fun to make it. Its a one of a kind and I don't really know how I mix the colours for the monoprint. For you also good wishings for christmas and 2015, Thanks also for the heart.
Comment: Hi Mieke! Dank je wel voor je cadeautje! Ik ga mijn rating aanpassen na kerst!! - Deze was ook super leuk! Werd er helemaal blij van toen ik ze vanmorgen eindelijk open mocht maken! Fijne kerst!!!
Response: Hoi, bedankt voor de rating. Zo doe ik het ook met de rating van deze swaps. groetjes Mieke
25-12 bedankt voor het hartje. Leuk he al die cadeautjes!
Comment: Thanks again, now that I opened it! You always send nice items and I especially enjoyed the kid's pages, the lovely Thanksgiving rub ons, and ooh - the darling little fold up letter with the Eiffel Tower and a double decker bus on it! My absolute favorite is the Banette bag with Tour de France theme -- I am a huge fan of this race, watch every moment on TV and have driven part of the route in southern France (not during the race, though. Now I am going to add the Tour to my profile.) Thank you for the delightful Christmas treat.
Response: Your welcome. I hope you like it!
Update 12/29: Your welcome. I send it with plesure and i am glad you like it!
just want to let you know your parcel was opened up by our customs here, as there was no declaration.
Response: Luckily you have received the package. Too bad it is open, unfortunately nothing to be done. It is not known to me that you are need declaration for your customs for Australia, a lesson for the next time. I hope you like the content of the christmas present (or what's left of it).
Comment: Thank you for all the great tags!! They are all so interesting. I especially like the red one with the book page and the paint rolled on with the kitchen tool. I appreciate all the work you put into them.
Response: Your welcome, it was very nice to do it!
Thanks for the heart.
Comment: OH, this swap is a very difficult one.. Thank you for a beautiful yellow-wrapped gift! Oh my, I have to wait THREE months to open it. That is difficult indeed :) EDIT: Thank you very much! I love everything you sent - especially the flow-card!! Have a fabulous 2015 :)
Response: Yes, it's very very very difficult, life is so hard ;-)
You also the best!

Also thanks for the heart.
Comment: wow...what a wonderful package of assortment... i love love love all of it... especially the bright orange paper..thank you so much .... love the book sheets with paint and designs on them..thank you for sharing these with me...
Response: Your welcome, I also loved the book sheets with paint. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Thank you so much, Mieke! I feel bad that that happened with our post office. I hope you're not mad about the late rating. Happy swapping!
Response: Hi Erica, Nope, I'm not mad. Things like this happen. And I don't mind to send a swap for the 2nd time as necessary. Have a nice day and happy swapping. Also I want to thank you for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the great card! It reminds me of all the good memories I've had during my trip to Amsterdam, Keukenhof and Zaanse schans. Its a amazing place! I love the mini clog magnet souvenir the most, its the cutest touristy magnet I've got. :)
Response: It's very pleasant to remember a nice vacation. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Hi Mieke,
the resend did arrive today. Thanks a lot! What a pity that the first one got lost. I like the look of the backgrounds of the flower ATC and also of the extra papers. How did you make it?
Response: Hi Christine, Luckily you have received the second atc. Thank you for the heart.
The background I have made with the gelli plate (you can google it if you don't now what it is) and I have use for the paint the colors fluor pink and fluor yellow, the orange you get to mix pink and yellow. Than I have use a handmade stamp for the flower. The stamp I have inprinted with blue stamp ink. Then I have the flower colored with blue paint.

Response: Your welcom en thanks for the heart. In the 2nd World War, the whole center of Rotterdam was bombed. A few large buildings remain. This had to be reconstructed at the time the whole city, hence all the modern buildings / bridges.

Comment: I love the phone. My parents had one like that, too. They gave it to me and it still works. When the electricity goes out, like in a storm, it will work when the others won't. Nice ATC. Thank you.
