Hi! My name is Ann. I'm a Danish girl... (can I still say 'girl' even when I passed the big 4-0?)(Oh, my, now it's the even bigger 4-1! How did that happen so quick?!)
I live in a beautiful little town with hills, a lake and just a walk to the beach.
If I get on my bike I have 5 minutes to the woods and if I take the car I have 5 minutes to the sea.
I love the nature surrounding me through all four seasons. I love all four, each has it's charm but nothing beats a warm summerday with the sound of kids laughing, playing watergames and the smell of freshly cut grass...
My home is a house in a great neighborhood with a garden of nothing but grass as neither me nor my husband of 20 years has any green thumbs (but lots of thumbs when it comes to gardening...)
I have two wonderful kids; a rascal boy of 9 and a beautiful girl of 11.
In 1996 I was educated in a flowershop and though I loved the flowerdecorations (no green thumbs needed for precut flowers! ;) it just wasn't the right shelf for me.
I found work making transformers for just about anything, something completely different but just the right spot for me.
I'm a bit of a bookworm!
On a good week I chew my way through a couple of books.
If you are a book reader, please do recommend me your favorite authors and books. I am always on the lookout for something new to read.
I might be an addict... For TV-shows...
Absolute all time favorites...
Game of Thrones.
Buffy, Angel, Firefly... Love Joss Whedon...
American Horror Story, first season.
There's so many great shows, just to name a few...
The 100, Gotham, Banshee, Fortitude, Misfits, Under the Dome, Secrets and lies, United states of Tara...
Lost, Desperate Housewives, 24 hours...
A couple of years ago I bought the book 'One zentangle a Day', I don't remember why or where I found it.
I really liked the idea of the patterns, worked through the book and used the patterns every now and then but not much really...
Not until December '15 when I discovered pinterest and found the most amazingly wonderful drawings and doodlings. The books were great for learning the basics but cannot hold a candle to some of the work I found.
I started a journal at the same time as tangling, that is also a new favorite of mine. When joining swapbot I started a smashbook where I save envelopes, cards and anything else received in swaps. One page per swap and my rule is I can only use what I received to decorate that page.
I am completely hooked! I love making these little coordinating cards and picking out little goodies for my partner. I have found that I also enjoy writing (and reading!) the letters.
The pocket letters I recieve, I store in a binder which means I prefer my PLs decorated on the front with goodies in the back.
CROCHET & KNIT...
When I'm not tangling, I knit and crochet, mostly for the kids' teddies but I have also made some shawls, baby blankets and love making small projects like snowflakes and hearts.
Occasionally I dig out the sewing machine and sew clothes for my kids and their Teddy bears... Once I sewed a pair of pants for myself, but I do prefer the smaller projects.
I have started making flipbooks! So much fun! I predict this as my next addiction... ♥
So I jumped this wagon too! Started bullet journaling and enjoying very much not having all those little notes laying around!
I love animals...
Cats and owls, butterflies and birds are my favorites.
I also love anything with...
I love bright, happy colors.
My favorite color is teal and all other blue tones, but really I just love color.
Lately I am loving mint/pink/yellow.

💌 I love receiving snail mail!💌
Pretty envelopes with real postage stamps makes my day! ❤️
If you take the time to write me a note or even a letter, you make my day even better.
It could be about something you did recently, some place you went, about you, your job, something funny your kids said, anything at all really.
Please don't worry about sending me something handmade, even if it didn't fall in my taste (I'm sure it will) I would still appreciate the time and effort spent!
I have a sweet tooth... Actually that's the only kind of teeth I have!
My favorite candy is sweet licorice.
Chocolate, especially white chocolate and chocolate with licorice. Milk chocolate with nuts, coconut, fruit, caramel... I love to try new kinds. We don't have a lot here. (No dark please.)
Nuts of any kind, salted, roasted, smoked... It's all good.
