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.

I think everyone deserves a ❤️ on her swap too, because everyone puts effort in their swaps! Only if everything is storebought and no personal touch of note, I doubt. And even then, someone takes the effort to send something to me.

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.

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.

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 :)

Comment: Thank you for the lovely card. I absolutely love it.
Comment: Hi Evelyn! It was so nice to have you as my partner again. Thank you very much for the cute homemade note card with the verse from Micah. It resonates with me. God's word is so inspiring. It was good to read your note. I understand all too well how easy it is to get caught up in the worldly things...our time being taken away to get things done for eternal good. But we're not perfect, and God knows us. We continue to do our best and walk humbly before Him. Thank you for all the extras!

Comment: Thank you for sharing a peek into your life! I love the panorama you took while crossing the street. It's funny how totally unusual it looks to me as an American, yet how similar it is at the same time!
