Hi, I am Kim. a 30 something girl with creativeness running through her veins. Mostly in drawing, but these days I love fabrics and I have tons of ideas which one day I WILL create.
I started my own business five years ago in teaching others how to draw mandala's and guide them through personal processes with that. I work for a boss in logistics 5 days a week, so only 2 days a week left to work for my passion.
Dark purple, olive green, all shades of blue, turquoise, red, yellow, orange, brown. (No Pink! Unless neon..) For inspiration you can see the boards color, fabrics and my style on my pinterest
See what I make on my flickr account.
â™¥ Drawing. I love my paper and color pencils. I still have some Karisma pencils. In the US known as Prisma. AS these are no longer available in the Netherlands, you know what would make me happy!
â™¥ Doodling:Zentangles and zendalas, but now also combined with watercolor.
â™¥ Cooking and baking.
â™¥ Photography (owning a Canon EOS 1000D)
I just started to learn how to crochet.

Never thought I would add a column with things I would not like to receive, but a few months on swap bot made me realize it might be best if I want to receive things I love only and let people know what I do not like so much.
-FB's. I have no intention in filling them in and I can only wait for a profile in a swap that likes them so they will be stuck with me for quite a while.
Ear rings and bracelets. Necklaces I love though!
Unwashed smelly fabrics. I have received fabrics and crafts out of fabrics that smelled like smoke or pets heavily. That took a lot of joy out of opening the package.
-Diddle, hello kitty, Disney items.
