I'm a student Book and paper conservation in Amsterdam, where I also live. I share a house with 2 lovely cats, 2 young ferrets and a boyfriend. I love handmade things, things made with love, artyfartsy things and whimsical things. :)
Dislike colours : Every colour can be beautiful on its own or complemented by another brighter colour, so what I dislike are a whole of depressing colours, without any cheerful colours. An assemble of oranges and brown will do just that, for example. I also don't like bright yellow that much.
owls, mushrooms/toadstools, hedgehogs, foxes
everything magical and fairytale-like (but not in the clichÃ© kind of way, more the whimsical kind of way)
goats, they always seem to smile â™¥ But I love cats and ferrets as well :)
handmade things are the best! I love the fact that someone has made an effort to it, something machinemade items don't have. Putting effort into a swap and a lot of love is top priority to me, wether it is crocheted or a drawing or complety something else. I love receiving swaps that are made in the same state of mind.
See my pinterest for more likes! :)
The most beautiful thing about swapping is making someone happy and in order to avoid stuff to lay around here not loved or not used, I decided to make up a more to-the-point non favourite list. (not from a disgratefull point of view!) Non-favourites: I really don't enjoy scrapping, so please don't send me scrap material. They wouldn't be used and that is a shame, so please don't send those items to me, but to someone who's into scrapping ;)
Please don't send me any food items or care products, due to allergies.
Furthermore, you won't make me too happy with Disney items and fabrics which smell of smoke.
