About Me

Hi! Welcome to my profile.

My name is Evelyn and I live in the east of the Netherlands. I am married to the best ❤️ (Juni 2015) and I am a Christian. We have a lot of pets. 🐾🐾


I love a lot of things, mostly to be creative and to be outside (which is not always a good combination). During daytime I work as a consultant to implement payroll and HRM software. 💻

After work time I like to be as creative as possible. 📚🖋🖍📎✂️📐📊🔨🔧✏️

I do a lot of swapping and postcrossing. It is my challenge to make something profile based for you, I am alwasy looking for something fitting with your wishlist. And I am often trying out to make something new (for me).

Please look into my open instagram profile to see my creations. I publish almost everything I make.

Swap not received?

If you don't receive a swap and you can see I sent it, please send me a message! I'm happy to make it again for you. Mail from me to out of Europe takes most of the time between 10 and 15 days to reach you.


Of course I will rate as soon as I get your mail. Mostly I will do it the same or the next day :)

I will show your work in my comments in my profile, so others can see your creation too.

My favorites

Here are some of my favorite themes, although I like everything which is made with love and care.

  • something with music paper


  • (handletterd) quotes

    handlettered quotes

  • birds / butterflies


  • wild life


  • mountains / nature water


  • letters and numbers


  • vintage


  • flowers especially hortensia and sunflowers 🌻


  • something typical from your country

  • colour gold and blue


  • Jip en Janneke


  • Languages Besides my native language I speak French, English, German, Norwegian and a little bit Hunagrian. Feel free to write in one of those languages.


If you send me a postcard and there is no requirement in the swap for send it naked or not, I prefer an envelope so you can write more and I can keep the stamps 📨📮

Although I love so many things, I don't like only a few:

  • religious pictures
  • erotic pictures
  • dreamcathers

As you can see in al the pictures in my profile, I don't have a particulare style in crafting. So feel free to be-YOU-tiful ❤️

Favorite Tools

  • I love my Silhouette Curio, which I use mostly for cutting and sketching.
  • I wait for my Silhouette Mint to design and make my own stamps.

I love upcycling

It is very fun to reuse and upcycle some stuff. When there is a swap with an upcycling theme, I can hardly resist joining the swap.

Here are some projects I made: an upcycled photoframe and edited coffee-glasses with a glass etching technique.

Every weekend we take her out for a swim in nature water, which makes us drive about 45minutes in wintertime and 1hour en 15minutes in summertime. We do not have that many places where dogs are allowed to swim. Mostly we take 4-7 dogs (all family) in my car to have a lovely day together :)

Lilianders rated for ATC: Cat Theme on Aug 12, 2017
Comment: Leuk een swap uit Nederland! De envelop zag eruit of hij van de andere kant van de wereld kwam.... er zat ook een sticker op van de post met herstel verzending. Het leek erop of de postbode de brief had geopend... maar voor zover ik kan beoordelen, zat alles erin, een kaart en een ATC. En die zijn leuk😃
Response: Zou de postbode zó nieuwsgierig zijn geworden ?? 😀 Ben blij dat je het leuk vindt! Ik zat even te zoeken wat ik voor je hebt gemaakt, maar heb mijn foto's kennelijk gewest van deze swap :( Gelukkig bewaar ik het resultaat wel op Flickr hoera! Ik doe er eigenlijk altijd wat bij, maar weet niet meer wat ik hier bij in had gestopt. In elk geval veel plezier ermee! 🌼
