Hi, my name is Phoebe. I just moved to the Netherlands from the US. I am concentrating on learning Dutch, and enjoying the beautiful weather, gardens, and architecture.
I love old books, even ones that are falling apart because I repurpose the pages into collage or art books/ smash books.
I really, really love computer books from the sixties, seventies, and eighties.
I love kids books and/or textbooks with illustrations.
Postage stamps! I love the artwork, the history, the cultures, the textures and colors. I really enjoy spending hours arranging and categorizing them.
I love naked postcards! (Postcards sent through the post, not inside an envelope)
I love just about anything with a beat! I studied music theory in college and it's amazing what goes behind the sound.
I love hearing music from all over the world, in all different styles. I just got an account at emusic this past year and I love the ease of downloading music. On the flip side, one of my friends had to close his music store after 17 years of good business, because not enough people shop in a physical store any more. So that's sad.
Currently listening to:
The Neverending Story by Michael Ende was my first "favorite" book. It is still one of my favorites. It's very complex, much more so than the movie, and it was the first book I ever got angry at; I threw it across the room when I was 12. You see, the main character started to make bad choices, hurting his friends and falling into the hands of the antagonist... That book takes you up, down, and all over the place. It's a good fantasy book, and also a good soul-searching book.
I love anything by Patricia Mclaughlan , E.L. Konigsburg , Douglas Adams , Ursula K. LeGuin , Patricia A. McKillip , Orson Scott Card , Madeleine L'Engle , Alice Walker , Greg Bear , Donna Jo Napoli , Terry Pratchett , and Nancy Farmer .
I also loved The Woman Warrior by Maxine Hong Kingston and any book that envelops you in a culture not your own. This would be different for everyone, but that's what's great about sharing and reading: you get to experience a little bit about someone else's life.
I enjoy sci-fi, fantasy, interesting biographies, juvenile fiction, and juvenile fiction from other countries.
I love any books about fermenting food, like sauerkraut, kimchi, etc. I really enjoyed Real Food Fermentation, by Alex Lewin, and Wild Fermentation, by Sandor Katz.
I'm into digital fabric printing (Spoonflower, Feebeedee) and collage applique, I love pattern and color, which also leads to a love of photography, and stained glass. I've just begun to explore digitally generated art, which creates itself after you give it a few guidelines. Here are some good sites:
LIght aqua is my favorite color. Light aqua, lime green, greeny teal, blue spruce, olive, and all that together works.
I love zines and writing, so send me a bit of something you wrote, either on a card, in a zine booklet, decorated with art and stickers, etc. Thoughts are good.
I also love to learn new skills. So if you know something, and think you can teach it to me, please do! I will happily reciprocate!
Natural body care things are good. I like lavender, eucalyptus (wow, I'm amazed that I spelled that right), patchouli, ginger, and rosemary. I like musky scents far more than fruity ones. No food scents please!
I do love candles, in the musky scents.
