About Me

I am a grandmother living in New Zealand with 8 grandchildren. I was born in Holland but have lived in New Zealand for 49 years.

I am new to the field of ATCs having just swapped a few with other New Zealanders and a few with people living in Australia and England. I am really keen to get the opportunity to be able to swap in a number of different topics and was introduced to this site by my daughter who has also joined up.

Likes/Dislikes

I enjoy receiving ATCs in collage, hand drawn and those where people have taken some care in producing.

I dislike oriental themed cards and cards where it seems like people haven't really been bothered with the production.

I also feel strongly about people taking part in swaps and then not following through with them. The whole thing about ATCs are they are supposed to be traded. I am looking forward to receiving some great cards.

Favorite Crafts

I am an amateur artist, painting in watercolours and acrylics. I also do a variety of handcrafts such as quilting, knitting and crochet.

Favorite Books

I enjoy reading Historical Romances. I have also been known to spend some time completing crossword and word puzzles.

Comment: The swap description said the film should be from 1960s or earlier. I could maybe excuse it if it were from a bit later, but Silence of the Lambs was made in 1991. I also don't really think this qualifies as "art". You just printed off some pictures and slapped them on. If you feel this is unfair, please PM me.
Response: Very sorry if I made a mistake with the theme date.Had been in hospital and had not much time to it.next time better,that was my first 3 sad Elsd
