About Me

If you take a look at my blog, you might get a glimpse of a swap I'm making! So if you want to be surprised, check it after you have received the swap!

My name is Eveline. I live in a town near Rotterdam, The Netherlands. I'm married and we have two boys, one monster of 15 years old, the little monster of 7 years old and a new baby monster on it's way!. A cat and a bunny are running around the house too.

Favorite Crafts

I love to sew: stuff for kids, quilts and bags.I like crocheting, stitching and knitting too. But I'm really still new at that! At this moment I am trying to make a quiet book for my little monster. I find it a real challenge to find things to put in to it, because he is 7 and most of the ideas on pinterest are for smaller kids. So if you have any ideas and you want to share them, please do! I also love: paper-crafts, mini-albums, ATC's, making cards, themed shadowboxes and displays to show all kinds of trinkets and vintage finds.

Favorite Music

My favorite music is punkrock en NY Hardcore (f.e.: NOFX, Sick of it all, Pennywise, No Use for a Name) and also old-school disco, Abba and singing along with musicals like The Sound of Music and Grease.

Favorite Movies

I like to watch Costume Drama's from the BBC: Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility. Gone with the Wind is so beautiful too! The Great Gatsby was great! I have seen al the Harry Potter-movies many times! I can quote almost all the lines from Pulp Fiction too!

Favorite Books

When I'm crafting, sewing, baking, painting or whatever, I listen to audiobooks. It's a great way to keep up with literature and being busy with my hands.

I also read a lot. The latest books I read where The Hunger Games-serie, Jennifer Egan - 'A visit from the Goon Squad' and a book from a Dutch writer, Simone van der Vlugt. A book of Louis Couperus , "The discovery of heaven" written by Harry Mulisch. I've just finished 'Island beneath the sea" by Isabel Allende and it is a great book! The next book on the list is from Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

Favorite Television

I enjoy The Big Bang Theory, Grey's Anatomy, Once Upon a Time on television. And when Feyenoord or the Dutch soccer-team plays, I'll watch all their games. In the winter I like to watch the ice-skating too.

Favorite Things

Receiving mail and packages is one of the nicer things in live. And if they have real stamps on it, it is even better!

I really would like to receive an elf on the shelve-book or a copy of it so I can translate it for my monsters. I can't buy them here in The Netherlands and I've seen it on Pinterest and it looks so much fun to do!

I like:

vintage lace,

typewriters,

wooden scrabble-tiles

Plastic Push Pop Containers,

100% cotton fabric,

Quilting supplies,

ribbons,

buttons,

metal charms,

stars,

Graphic45, Maya Road and Tim Holtz paper,

(Vintage) embellishments,

old tea cups,

fabric banners,

handmade bags and purses,

magazines from foreign countries (crafting, sewing or homedecoration),

old books (from before 1950),

Sharpie pens (Please only the real ones, not the fakes like Sharpei),

washi-tape (no deco-tape or plastic tape),

Duct-tape with illustrations,

Holly Hobby,

Anne of Green Gables,

Pippi Langkous (Longstocking),

Calvin and Hobbes,

Laura Ingalls Wilders' Little House on the Prairie (the books, definitely NOT the tv-serie!!!)

Anything from Stampin' Up ,

Rubber stamps,

New York,

Paperbags (brown paper lunch bags for mini- albums, In New York I've seen them at Duane Reed, but I guess they sell them in a supermarket too),

Racoons,

Anything from Tim Holtz,

Anything from Martha Stewart,

Nativity scenes,

Christmas,

Virgin Mary ephemera

Easter,

Halloween,

Sinterklaas,

Panda bears,

Angry Birds,

Skylanders,

WWII-ephemera,

Starbucks Mugs,

Alice in Wonderland,

Little Red Riding Hood,

Jip en Janneke

Fiep Westendorp

Pippi Longstocking,

Silhouette Cameo-items.

Candy, but fabric-sealed, not loose, and I would really like Halloween Candy Corn. It is not available here!

Halloween M&M's (The Candy Corn ones) or other special ones,

White or milk chocolate with a filling (not the dark kind and certainly not filled with peanut butter; I recently got a Wonka-crème Brulée- bar and it was sooooo good),

Herbal tea,

Coca cola zero,

And on my Pinterest wishlist and Etsy wishlist there is a lot more I really like and you can use for an indication.

For postcard-swaps:

Postcards from your town or country, love the ones with landscapes, with something written about your life. Or postcards with books on it or with illustrations from books and postcards or related to one of my favorite things!

Swapping

I love swapping and I'll do my best to send out nice and if possible, profile-based packages. And I like it a lot if I can see that my swap-partner has read my profile too and makes the swap with tender, love and care and if they use real stamps instead of the printed ones, I would really appreciate it!

I will always send as soon as I can. If I am late in sending, I will always mail my partner. PLEASE contact me if you don't receive a swap from me or if you're not happy with it! I'm always willing to prepare a new one and re-send it!

If you would like something from the Netherlands or something you have seen on my website, please contact me and maybe we could do a private swap!

Comment: Extra heart for you Eveline! I loved all the things you sent but I specially liked the blue mug, the earrings and the reusable sac (which I'm using to carry the extra phone battery around). Everything arrived in perfect condition and I loved the way you wrapped every single item and labelled individually each thing!!!!! GRACIAS!

No problem, Happy to do it, this one is gonna be fun! I found some great Snow White themed charms the other day & that inspired me to do the swap:)

MissWhimsy on May 15, 2014:

Snow White is now International in TIAZ grp :)

MissWhimsy on Apr 16, 2014:

Hi please come join my TIAZ group thankyou giveaway, there will be two winners! :)

kerrydwynn on Mar 18, 2014:

Welcome to Cold Hands Warm Hearts We have a great group and I'm sure you will enjoy swapping with us!

MissWhimsy on Mar 15, 2014:

Thank you for the suggestion, glad you joined my Austen swap, Im really looking forward to this one! :)

MissWhimsy on Mar 15, 2014:

Hi! Ive edited the TIAZ Group swap for "Jane Austen' In A Baggie to be international now, and also senders choice on all Austen themed items, no having to pick from a pre-set list, hopefully that will be less restricting for everyone inspiration wise, and now everyone can join in, thanks for the suggestion! :)--Sarah

Hallo Eveline, Wat leuk. Ook ik heb kaarten in mijn voorraaddozen van de tentoonstelling van Chanel in Den Haag. Ik ben een echte museumganger. Maar wel selectief. Als het iets met textiel is, of moderne kunst, beeldhouwwerk, schilderijen enz, dat interesseert mij. Ik wil bv ook voor 11 mei nog naar de Kunsthal in Rotterdam voor de schoenen en de stoffen van Marimekko. En ik eindig zo'n bezoek natuurlijk altijd met het kopen van een stapeltje kaarten om mijn voorraad aan te vullen. Happy swapping

snailmailer1 on Jan 23, 2014:

Ha ha. The edibles are always the first to go in my house too. I'm glad the parcel arrived safely. It's been a pleasure swapping with you, as always :) x
