I'm 23 years old and I live in Helmond in the Netherlands, together with my boyfriend and two ginea pigs and two cats :). My boyfriend and I are together for eight years now. I work as a religious education teacher at a secondary school. I also study history, because I'd like to teach this subject as well. I like (art) journaling, watching DVD's (mostly series like Friends and That 70's Show!), crocheting amigurumi, reading and exchanging mail!
I love crocheting! I started over a year ago and after a lot of failure and practice I can finally say I think I'm good at it. I crochet amigurumi every now and then. Currently I'm working on a huge granny square blanket :).
I'm a beginner at knitting, but love it already :)
I like paper craft and arts, but I've never tried a lot. So tips and tricks are always welcome! I like making cards, bookmarks, ATC etc. I draw and paint a little, but I'm not very good at it. I like to make collages and I also started an art journal. I'm having a lot of fun doing that.
I've also done a little bit of cross stitching.
I'm a beginner using a sewing machine. I've made some stuffies, a quilted blanket, pillow cases and am currently working on a birthday quirland.
I like making dotee dolls.
Well, I like:
Guinea pigs. I have two of them (a sheltie and a rex) and I adore them. Any stuff with guinea pigs on them would be GREAT.
I also like other animals, especially bears and penguins. I LOVE going to the zoo, I visit a few every year!
Religious stuff (like icons and idols or rosaries, symbols). This may be things of ANY religion, christianity, hinduism, buddhism, new age, etc. I like the colourful world of religion and find a lot of things interesting. So if you have anything with Jesus or Mary on it, or maybe some arabic writings or hindu gods... Please use it for the swaps you send to me!
Anything that can be used for crocheting and decoration amigurumi, like yarn, safety eyes, beads and buttons, ribbons...
Beads, stickers, stuffies (don't know why, probably nostalgia)
Reading and books in general.
Classic novels and costume films (like Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, North & South, Cranford...)
Anything 'old' is great. I love things looking retro, vintage, victorian or medieval.
Cute things with polka dots, checkers or flower patterns.
Sending and receiving cards and letters, keeping journals. I'm also addicted to notebooks.
I like swapping tea. I love all kinds of tea! Black tea's, green tea's, herbal tea's, fruit tea's... The only one kind of tea I really hate is liqourice! Yuck!
I also like indie and punk music, like Arctic Monkeys, the Wombats, Franz Ferdinand, the Killers, Lostprophets, Flogging Molly, Florence + the Machine etc. I love going to festivals, although I don't do this every year because it's so expensive :(.
If you need some inspiration for extra's... I really like to receive tea bags! Also embellishments like buttons, beads, pretty papers, glitters, ribbons etc. are great.
I love swapping and I like thoughtful swaps, things which are made/picked with care. I like receiving swaps with a kind little note. If you can't send a swap in time, please message me. I will understand!
I also try to do all these things myself. So if you haven't received any swap by me, nor a message, please contact me!
