I'm married with my youth soulmate, we've known eachother for 30 years now. I'm 48 y.o. We have 2 sons, they're 21 and 18, and are active BMX'ers. We live in a small village in the Northeast of Holland, in summer we have triple as much inhabitants as normal. It's a very nice place to live (sometimes too busy in summer). I work at an advertising agency, as a media-advisor (but we're only with 5, so I do a lot more than that).
We love to travel together, take lots of pictures/less films, to be active on our bikes (BMX, ATB).
We're all very creative persons, my husband's a graphic designer (his second love is TinTin or Kuifje), our oldest son learnes how to make theater decors, and other things like that, the youngest one is the 'computer nerd', he wants to be a film editor or some like that.
And I'm creative in all kinds of ways: scrapbooking (all the pictures we've made), crocheting, sewing, knitting, cross stitching. As a kid -and when my kids were little ones- I used to make the clothings of my dolls, make bags, my own clothing, pillows, blankets and much more. Nowadays I don't have the time to sit behind my sewing machine, unfortunately.
What I love, is to start the day with a cup of tea (I prefer the fruit flavours), then look at the news. Mostly a quick run through the house (I hate housholds, but I'm very fond of the results, when I'm ready ;-) ).After that the administration if needed, or the (dish)washing if necessary. Then it's ME-time! At this time I love to snailmail, sometimes with long letters, but always with a party for your mailbox.
The things I love about snailmail, is the personal touch of it. My favorite things: - stationery, notebooks, washi tape, (postal) stamps, ribbons, patterned papers - vintage, Kuifje (or TinTin or TenTen or Tim, the Belgian reporter with his white dog Bobbie, Milou or Snowy), poppy flowers, sunflowers, all colorful flowers; - I love the VW-Van T1/T2 (it's our oldest one's favorite: he wants it from age 4...he's still saving money to buy -I hope, he will fit in it, 'cause he's 1.90 m. tall-) - scrapbook style: tim Holtz, Graphic 45, Basic Grey, that kind of stuff; - little parts of watches, little sewing things; - the colors I like: red, white, orange, sunflower-yellow, colors that fits together, black-and-white, sepia, vintage colors; -postcards I like: poppies, sunflowers, vintage, old ad cards, traditional costumes, TinTin/Kuifje.
All the 60's, 70's, 80's music, pop, rock, sometimes ballads,Dutch, I love music on the background when cleaning, being creative.
I love the books of Dan Brown, detectives (mostly paperbacks on vacation), James Bond, chicklits, smooth stories now and then.
Love seeing with my kids: Fast & Furious, they are extreme sporters. Also love the James Bond movies, love stories, Disney movies -saw them all, love Disney-, no scary movies, yes action movies.
CSI, NCIS, Bones, love it! Detective series, house makeovers, interior series, National Geografic, Discovery Channel.
I love scrapbooking, sewing, crocheting, stationery, Postcrossing, snailmailing, reading and writing. Love (postage) stamps, quotes, vintage, colorful (if it fits together, I like it), nice ideas to make a postal envelope a party in your mailbox.
I love vintage postcards, (old) map postcards, bikes, typewriters, Inge LÃ¶Ã¶k (it's in the name), Dick Bruna, GF, mailboxes, old advertising cards, old (movie-, music-)stars (B&W or color), poppies.
Kuifje, TinTin, TenTen, the Belgian reporter with his doggie Bobbie, or Snowy..or whatever their names are in your language.
