About Me

My name is Monique, 47, married and we have 2 sons. Finn is 17 years old and Kai is 15 years old. I work for a motocross team and just love it. It's busy and hectic but love my job. I like to do crafts. I especially do jewelry making and go to craft markets sometimes. But I also like to work with felt, sew, knit, make tags etc. etc. Always new things to discover!

Please note: I do drop off swaps in the mailbox on saturday and sunday but the mail will not be collected till monday evening so that's why there might be another date on the stamp because I do click the send button when it is in the mailbox

Favorite Crafts

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 :)

My wishlist

Here's a list of things I love:

  • tins, I collect all sorts of tins, small, big, round, square etc. especially vintage ones or with a vintage look, with flower, butterflies etc.

  • paper doilies

  • vintage items, anything really

  • kawaii sticker flakes

  • Acryl beads

  • vintage postcards

  • any item from my etsy wishlist

  • glassbeads, I like to make necklaces. I love all sorts of beads, charms etc

  • kawaii lettersets, not folded please

  • handmade envies, I also love it when the mail I receive is decorated, it makes me smile and I will always try to decorate the envies I send :)

  • 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

  • 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, things you made, 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

  • addylabels and swapcards

  • 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 :)

Favorite Crafts

I love sewing and knitting, 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.

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.

Swaps I have been flaked on

If anyone wants to angel one of the swaps I have been flaked on...I would love you forever!!

  • forum tag, send lettersets, flaked by @baseballmom87

  • flaked on a tag, pick 2 tag, by @cthalken she was supposed to send me a ribbongrabbie and a vintage button grabbie

  • flaked for another tag, by @christygirl she was supposed to send me random beads, 6-8 of each kind and at least 5 different kinds

  • Profile swap, http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/108027, flaked by @bubble07

  • Hello Kitty LP, never received this tag from @mysticbayou

  • kawaii x 150 swap,http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/38477, @carrotlove had to sent to me.

  • $5 Sanrio Surprise #4 + wrapped Sanrio gift. I was supposed to receive from @missdee

  • Sanrio grab bag swap, http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/52122, I had to receive from the host, @spookysweets1 but she never send anything at all

Things I dislike/do not need

I do like a lot but there are some things I really do not like:

  • no candy please

  • melon tea or melon lipbalm, or mint lipbalm/gloss

I will always send and rate

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 :)

I collect...

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,

Swap Angels!

A big thank you to the following awesome people here that angeld a swap or tag I have been flaked on:

@fever thanks a lot!
