Hi, my name is Phoebe. I have moved to the Netherlands from the US. I am concentrating on learning Dutch, and enjoying the beautiful weather, gardens, and architecture. I’m also trying to find a job. My Dutch doesn’t seem to be quite good enough yet, but we’ll see.
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.
You can find more of my reading preferences below in the “Favorite Books” section.
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)
Please visit my Flickr site! You can use all my photos in your own work and projects. If it’s a photo of someone else’s artwork, or if you’re not sure if you can use it, send me a note either through here or Flickr and I’d be happy to clear it up for you. I really do love to share.
I love just about anything with a beat! My new favorite is BTS .
I love hearing music from all over the world, in all different styles.
I love Andrew Bird , Imogen Heap, Dido, Everything But the Girl, Black Eyed Peas, Regina Spektor, Dave Brubeck, Ddendyl, Sophia Urista, They Might Be Giants, and many many more.
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. 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 , Isaac Asimov , 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.
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.
