About Me

(BE AWARE, Pinterest might hold spoilers, so if you want to keep the element of surprise, do not visit the page if you know I am sending you something)

A little introduction, I am from the Netherlands and are a stay @ home mom with two children. A little boy of 5 and a little girl of almost 3.

I am a very active mom who loves to undertake things with the kids and I cook home made meals every day. I like to cook as much as possible from scratch and preferably organic.

We live in a small village in an old house however we dream of a house in Italy. When I was younger I lived in France with my parents and little sister, and I have also lived in Africa. I love to travel which reflects one of the jobs I have done: air hostess. I stopped with flying roughly 10 years ago and became a project manager. My last job was manager director, however the workload did not match with the family life I wanted to live. I was fortunate enough to be able to stop work for a couple of years to focus on my family live.

Well, I hope this gives an impression of who I am. I will be adding when I have read other profiles and got some more inspiration. ;0)

Happy snailmail/swapping everybody!

Favorite Crafts

I love to work with paper and washi tape to make beautiful booklets, envelops etc. I love to make a snailmail/swap with a theme.

I have been knitting for some time, and must admit, mostly scarfs for the winter for my family and friends. Recently I have also learned crochet and I am some how addicted. I really think it is a very nice way to use yarn.

To avoid disappointment

Unfortunatley I cannot drink anything with either caffeine or theine in it. I am very fond of tea but due to my allergy only herbal tea.

I am also very sensible to parfum, the smell can sometimes give me a migraine and my skin disagrees with it. Natural oils are okay.

Colors

I love bright colors such as PINK, TURQUOISE, LIME, YELLOW, ORANGE, PURPLE. These colors I use in my interior with a white base.

However, when it comes to swaps, I am up for any color.

Random things I like

Candles, flowers, butterflies, chocolate, paper, wine, black&white drawings, stamps, Starbucks, iPhone, hiking, photography, geo-caching, ski-ing... and probably much more but for now this is what I can think of ;0)

Anything with yarn

I am really into crochet lately and have made a few granny shawls (see my Pinterest page). HOwever I also love to make cranny squares, mandalas, flowers etc. I am not into the amigurumi. All I knit is "flat" and with needle 4 or 5 (European size).

My favorite yarn would be Paris Drops (cotton) and Stylecraft Special DK (acrylic).

Comment: The quality of your work is exceptional! What is the color? A pink coral? I must look for it to add to my baby quilts! Your swaps are always a treat! Love the cupcakes! Wow, not only did I forget to click the heart I commented & did not rate... Please forgive. I always love when you get my name, the quality of your work
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart, but most of all for your lovely words. They warm my heart. The yarn is from my stash, no more label so I could not tell you unfortunately. I do remember I got it as a birthday present. I am very glad to hear you like it. Happy swapping!

Comment: Bedankt voor je prachtige grannies.Sorry dat ik zo laat reageer,ik was een tijdje in Frankrijk om mijn nichtje bij te staan.Mijn tante was erg ziek en is overleden,dus stond mijn hoofd niet zo naar swapping.
Response: Gecondoleerd. Ik snap dat heel goed. Geen enkel probleem. Wilde graag zeker weten dat ze wel aangekomen waren, anders had ik nog een setje opgestuurd. Heel veel sterkte de komende tijd met het verwerken van dit verlies, ook voor jouw nichtje. En natuurlijk dank voor je rating & hartje.

Hi! I see that Boombo flaked on you for the "Busy Illustrated Envelope Swap". Ironically, she reluctantly gave me a five with no heart because she believed my drawing wasn't "busy" enough. Do you need an angel for it? because I had a lot of fun putting it together and I wouldn't mind doing it again.
