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 โค๏ธ (Juni 2015) and I am a Christian. We have a lot of pets. ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ


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. ๐Ÿ’ป

After work time I like to be as creative as possible. ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ–‹๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ“Žโœ‚๏ธ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“Š๐Ÿ”จ๐Ÿ”งโœ๏ธ

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 โค๏ธ 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 ๐ŸŒป


  • 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 ๐Ÿ“จ๐Ÿ“ฎ

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 โค๏ธ

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.

Comment: Yay! I'm so thrilled that I wasn't the only one to make a handmade (not printed) zine! Bonus points for that right there. :) And thank you for the extras!!!

Thank you so SO much for truly creating a thoughtful package catered to me.
