Who is Cynthia?

Hi there,

My name is Cynthia, I'm 40 something and a working mother of two. I'm working at a European construction agency and just love my job. I'm a big fan of eating out with my friends and of listening to music. I simply adore cats - especially my own two: Dice and Cutie Pie - and bright & sunny days. Traveling, and going to concerts are also things I love to do.

What more do I like?

Positive people, who enjoy there lives, who don't just think in black and white, but are also willing and able to choose some grey pathways. People who live their dreams and still can dance in the rain and laugh.

Now I'm so into mixed media, art journals and ATC.

Favorite Movies

Totally into, super hero movies (marvel) SF and Fantasy. I also like the new versions of fairytales such as Snowwhite and the huntsman, Red Riding Hood, Hansel & Gretel and Maleficent. Vampier movies, yes like those as Well! Twilight, True Blood, The lost boys. And I'm a huge Tarantino fan. Did I meantion Tim Burton...?

What's on my telly?

The Blacklist, How to get away with murder, one upon a time, and English detectives, such as Morse, Lewis, Dalziel and Pascoe, Midsummer murders; I love the accent!. Games of Thrones, Falco, Luther, Heroes, True Blood, Legion.

I like a lot of things

  • Mixed media
  • Favo colors: purple, pink, turquoise, black, red, sunny colors
  • Anything with sugar sculls on it (day of the dead) 💕
  • Art Journals, Junk Journals
  • Lace
  • Unusual postcards
  • Positive energy, Salvador Dali
  • Quotes, Rumi rules
  • Tea bags and drinking it with milk
  • People with a sense of humor, and dont take themselves to serious
  • Hearts, the Moon and Stars
  • Black clothes
  • Good food
  • Halloween
  • Steampunk and gothic
  • Design, chairs to be specific
  • Houses with white furniture / interiors (boho swedish style) *Artist Trading Cards
  • Handmade enveloppes

Can't live without music

I like the old new wave stuff, Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, the Cure, Siouxie, the Smits, Lamb, Joy Division and many more.

Now I like to listen to, Sabia, Absynthe Minded, Oscar and the Wolf, Killers, Bjork, Novastar, Fever Ray, Mumford & Sons, the National, Muse, Elbow.... Disco classics

Should I go on....?


Whatever you send me, if you made or bought it, wil make me happy 💕

Tea preferences

I like orange, citrus, black, cinemon, earl grey, lady grey, all English kinds. And I like to try some tea that I cant buy in Holland. I dont like Rooibos, mint or green tea's.


I like the unusual kind of cards, weird ones, monsters, black and white (also with one color) pop-art, day of dead (sugar sculls), surrealisme. PC with Frida Kahlo or Ganesha.

Not to fund of cards with a city scenery (tourist cards) or Ad cards unless the swap requires them. But I'm just happy with everything you send me. 😎

Books, yes please

Almost forgot to mention them: Poppy Z Brite, Clive Barker, Dan Simmons, Jack Vance, Harlan Coben and Paulo Coelho. And others.

Hi Cynthia! Thank you so much for your comment on my profile. Unfortunately, I haven't yet had the opportunity to visit Holland yet. But I hope that I get to someday! I would really like to be your pen pal and maybe swap some tea, if it interests you please do leave me a message! :) Have a great day ahead! <3

Hello Sparkling12335 !

I wanted to leave a Quick friendly Profile comment for you. I noticed your love for kitties! I had a cat who was my best friend growing up. He lived for so many years, I was devastated when he passed away :(. I have been thinking of getting one lately, but I want a tea cup size cat, and they are so pricey! Have you seen them? I also like some of the Tim Burton stuff. Check my dolls of Jack & Sally on my flicker page!

Hoi!! Ik heb jou voor de Quick friendly Profile comment Swap. Leuk een Nederlandse te treffen! Ik zie dat je ook Midsummer Murders kijkt. Ik vind dat ook zo'n leuke serie. Mijn moeder kijkt dat altijd en zo is het er bij mij ook ingerold. En net zoals jij ben ik helemaal verslaafd aan Washi Tape. Ik heb een hele grote mand vol al en kan het nooit laten leuke bij te kopen als ik ze zie. Heel veel plezier hier!!

I guess my comment is actually part of the Quick friendly Profile comment Swap. I went and made up my own name!

Read My Profile And Leave A Comment Swap: Traveling, concerts, and good food. I haven't had money out time lately for the first two, but I make sure to indulge once in a while is a really nice meal and try new places! I've recently gotten into pineapple patterns too, I think going to Maui, Hawaii, played a big party in that lol!
