Update: may 2016...Miracles do happen sometimes :) My dad is doing great and made the first steps again! After 3,5 years and lots of therapy, "fighting", anger, pain, frustration, desparation etc. it looks better. Three months ago he did the first steps, with help ofcourse but the beginning is here! We are all very proud of him and hope it will continue like this so he can walk again soon.
December 11 2012, please note. My dad is in the hospital because of cerebral hemorrhage so I will not be online a lot. May 2013, my dad is still in a hospital. His left side is paralyzed and it seems like that will not get better. We just took him off the antidepressiva and he is doing better now. He is alive again! It has been very hard on all of us, my mum, my dad, brother, my children, friends, family and for myself. It is so hard to see that my dad, who was always a hard working man, he always had something to do...and now...he is just in the bed, twice a day they will put him in his wheelchair and my mum tries to go walking with him every day but that is it. But now he is off the anti depressiva, it seems like he is getting back to life. I hope it will go on like this and that there will be more improvements....keep your fingers crossed!
My name is Monique, 45, married and we have 2 sons.Finn is 15 years old and Kai is 13 years old. I love to help out at school, go to the gym and do swaps.
I love to make bracelets, necklaces, rings etc. I have all sorts of beads and am always looking for more glassbeads (all sizes and colour), charms etc. So if you want to do a private swap for that, just pm me. I am also looking for magazines that show how to make jewellry.
At the moment I am totally into crafts so if you are looking for anything profile related then anything for making jewellry is very much appreciated :)
Here's a list of things I love:
any item from my etsy wishlist
tins, I collect all sorts of tins, small, big, round, square etc. especially vintage ones or with a vintage look, with flower, butterflies etc.
glassbeads, I like to make necklaces. I love all sorts of beads, charms etc
kawaii lettersets, not folded please
anything for making bracelets, necklaces, earring etc like chain, wax cord, charms, pendants etc.
your old jewelry (they can be handmade) or ones that are broken, that is allright with me
ribbons of all sorts, small or larger ones, short or longer pieces, any color
lace, any color
kawaii items, like stickers, stationery
washi tape, colorfull ones
magnets, I would love one from the country/state you are living in, or really cute ones, cupcake ones, kawaii ones, no commercial ones
fabric, it can be small pieces or bigger ones, with a motive or plain ones, any color
felt, any color
I would love to receive handmade items, especially things like jewelry, felt items, knitted items, crocheted items etc.
patterns for making jewelry, felt/fabric items, bags
lipbalm, no melon and mint please
love tea, loose or teabags but am not really into melon tea or mint tea
buttons, all sorts, small, big, funny, normal, vintage, anything :)
I love to get crafts magazines from all over the world. It doesn't matter in what language it is, pictures often say enough. Mainly based on making jewelry though is what I prefer.
gelpens, sharpies, other pens but only pens that write not in blue or black, I prefer happy and bright colors
fancy stickers, no reward stickers or things like that, but really cute and pretty ones
I love doilies
I love to do private swaps so please pm me if you are interested! I especially like to receive kawaii lettersets so if you are willing to swap these for something else just let me know. Also I have tons of used postage stamps that I already have so if you are interested in those, let me know :)
I have just discovered I love sewing and knitting. Just started it so I am still practising. I would love to do swaps for fabric, yarn for knitting, ribbons, buttons and anything related to that.
if you know of any good websites that have free patterns or tips on how to do things or are just fun to read let me know. My main thing is to make bags but just started with a pincushion to get the feeling. I am knitting a cute bag as well now. And I have this cute roses fabric to make a shopping bag. Wish me luck!
And another thing I started today (june 6 2012), making felt items. Made some hearts and decorated those, it is really fun to do. So I would love to receive felt or embroidery floss.
If anyone wants to angel one of the swaps I have been flaked on...I would love you forever!!

no scrapbooking stuff, not into that any longer
I will always send my swaps and rate. Please email me if you haven't received my swap. And please note that sometimes it can take up 4-6 weeks before mail gets from The Netherlands to, for example, countries like USA. If necessary I will resend swaps. Also, please don't rate me a 1 without mailing me. I am a good swapper and want to keep my good rating :)
Please do no forget to put a note in your swap and let me know which swap you are sending. I have gotten a few swaps without a note recently and it costs me a lot of time to go through all my swaps to try to find out which swap it is. So if there is no note I am sorry but I am not going through all my swaps again :(
I love to make bracelets, rings, necklaces, earrings and stuff so if you have any left over glass beads, wire, clasps, pins, etc. etc. pm me and maybe we can do a private swap :)
Tins! I have all sorts of tins, small, big, round, square, etc. I love all sorts, esp vintage ones or tins with a vintage look. Or cute tins with flowers, butterflies etc. If you have any tins you want to get rid of, let me know, maybe we can set up a swap for it. Please send me a picture to see if the tins are interesting to add to my collection,
