About Me

With my two daughters I have a wonderful time. I'm studying again and also working full time. Happily graduated! I'm still single, but wish I would meet the man meant for me.

I like beautiful, handmade things. Scrap booking, handmade cards, handmade postcards are crafts I like very much. But I also make my own soap and simple jewellery. I make my own household products, almost all.

I like to learn and create all the way.

Favorite Music

There are a variety of music I like. I just go by how I feel at a certain moment. The music I most familiar with is soul music I grew up with from before 2000.

Favorite Books

I am now more interested in health and history books, which simply tell the truth.

Favorite Television

**edited March 17, 2016

I do not watch tv anymore:) Feeling happy and relieved:))

Favorite Crafts

Scrapbooking, handmade cards, handmade postcards, homemade soap, homemade bodylotion and jewellery. I make almost anything I use.

I'm taking a pause of ATC's!!!


I am not a collector. So you don't have to send extra's.

  • No Disney dolls and or pictures
  • No store bought note or greeting cards
  • No store bought post cards
  • No teas
  • No to things for the kitchen s.a. magnets
  • No sweets at all or (containing gelatine)
  • No stickers
  • Please don't send me little pieces of
    (patterned) paper or card stock
  • Please no more bookmarks... I received too much bookmarks from swappers:-(
  • Also don't send me little stamped images.

I'm taking a pause of making ATC's and I do not collect ATC's, so please don't send me ATC's.

And yes, I do pass on to others, but still it's too much:-)


I would love to receive anything handmade by you.

  • handmade paper (mini) album
  • knitted sluffs or crocheted sluffs (shoelike)
  • knitted or crocheted hats (not too tight, though)
  • knitted or crocheted armwarmers
  • only herbal teas (if I join a tea swap). Otherwise please don't send me teas.


And further:

  • handmade jewellery
  • handmade rubber stamps
  • rubber stamps
  • acrylic (or clear) stamps
  • stencils for art journaling
  • anything neat and useful

I love all beautiful colours, but dark brown, old pink and lime green do steel my heart.

Oh, and I would like to fall in love again!

@mgallardo68 I guess some swappers are just wicked. She went way back to February 2017 to rerate me on a swap and change a 5 with heart into a 3. Sad!

sleepingrover2010 rated for Card Making Challenge #41 on Aug 31, 2017
Comment: Hello Lucine, It is great to receive a card from you again!! Thank you so much for your creative interpretation of the pattern we had to follow. I look forward to using your card. The "Just Smiles" I am a little unsure what they are for? I want to continue our friendship. So, I I hope we can meet on future swaps. I know you do card swaps, would you be willing to share what other swaps, kind of swaps you could be found through a Private message to me? If not, that is fine too. Barb sleepingrover2010
Response: HI Barb, I guess the "Just smiles" is just like a smiley in private message. Thank you for your kind comment:) I will send you a pm. TFR๐Ÿ’•!

Momta3luv2Quilt rated for Cupcake atc on Aug 27, 2017
Comment: The cupcake ATC is lovely! One suggestion is maybe back it on a piece of board (empty cereal box etc) to give it a bit of sturdiness
Response: You are right; I doubted if I should add backing and thought it's sturdy enough. I usually do that. Glad that you love it:) TFR๐Ÿ’•!
