My Etsy favorites
Hello everybody :) I used to be a 'heavy' writer, as we used to call it, when I was younger. I had so many penpals, I just loved to open my mailbox. Nowadays, as I grew older (hmhm), these contacts didn't last. I mean, not all contacts .. I still have great penfriends which became friends for life since I've been to their weddings and all ... Internet is a great medium but I miss snailmail. So, saw this website and thought I wanted to join it. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I live together with my man Frederick, we have a dog (black labrador called Bacho) and 2 cats (street cats called Satan & Nitro). I have a big family so spending much time with them. We just bought our own house, we still have a lot of work to do so sometimes time flies by. Hopefully soon some kids will fill up the house :)
So, chaos is my life, no tables in the house, no safe space for crafting, dust and sand everywhere, what did we do? :) Hope soon I'l find time for swaps again cuz it's so much fun to be around here!
Really looking for decorating magazines (used is okay as well) or decorating ideas :)
I like gardening (I loooove to grow my own vegetables, I like herbs and fruit plants, don't care so much for flowers), running with the dog, going to the movies, dancing and reading books (my man says I almost eat books!). When I feel like pampering myself I love to read in my bath :) Of course I don't have a bath yet but I just have to be patient. Aaah, heaven with the smell of vanilla, chocolate, cookies or red berries! When I find some time I like to make personalised items, either on the computer or by hand like mugs, house-numbers .. I like to travel to explore cities, Belgian cities or cities abroad. I love Berlin, Paris, Haifa, Carcasonne, I still want to visit Porto and Warsawa.
I work as a tutor in a daycentre for adults with mental retardation, I have to do workshops with them and my favourite one is 'the creative club' and I can always use some ideas or tools for it, my people love to work with wooden items to sand, paint or re-decorate.
stickers & deco / washi tape (with words, with prints, with smileys, for kids, ...)
clear stamps, rubber stamps (words, pictures)
notecards /postcards (blanc, any language)
ribbons (soft feeling, nice colours)
pens (any colour, I like it when they write 'thick')
... the more original the better, so please skip the cute and popular stuff like Hello Kitty.
[small pieces of fabric with nice prints] to 'pimp' my T-shirts with
[handmade items] kinda like everything handmade because someone loved to make it
[scarfs] as long as they feel 'soft'
[address stickers] ask for my new address!
[crafting ideas] as long as there are pictures or examples included
[wall stickers with quotes] for this I love the sweet significant quotes, not the funny ones.
[sewing patterns] easy patterns for useable things like bags, dolls, pillows, ...
[Paris] prints, cards, paper, patterns ... anything with Paris on is fun to get. Why? Because we'll always have Paris :)
[lip balm] I like them 'with a taste', just lip balm, not lip stick or lip gloss, don't use those.
[paper stuff] any style, any print, lettersets
[typical things from your home town] except postcards!
[kitchen tools] like tea towels, oven mitt, pot holders with nice / funny prints
[things with my name on - Leen -] stickers, stamps, pens, ...
[home decoration magazines] new or used, as long as they don't go back to the 80ies :) Even cut out articles are okay.
[cotton tote bags] not the small ones, they must be 'practical', handmade, with prints & colours, free ones with advertising ...
I like dark and milk chocolate with or without filling, any wrapped sweets, minty things and sugar free chewing gum. I also would love recipes for pasta, fish and tajine. I like all kinds of fruit tea and all sorts of instant cappuccino.
I love the colours pink, purple, eggshell and lime green or anything in between.
My dog Bacho likes every toy that squeaks and food he can chew on. I like the small treats I can use for his training. The cats like all small treats and small toys that tinkle.
My all time favourite band is Take That, so if you find anything about them it would be just fun to get :) When we're talking solo-careers of the guys, I absolutely like Robbie Williams.
postcards, city - country related (I had to collect hem for my uncle, I don't like to collect things and then give it away, that's why)
necklaces (I don't wear them often so they're gonna be not used and that's a shame)
rings (cannot wear them at work)
brand marks (why should something be better if there's a well known name on it?)
the smell of lavender and coconut (bad memories, nothing against the plants or fruit)
the colours black, grey, blue and orange (they are simply not made for me)
[ A postcard from my country for a postcard from your country as my uncle is still maximizing his collection :) I'm really sorry but he's got already too many from Spain, France and Italy!]
[I have some old and pretty postage stamps of Belgium ... anyone interested?]
[ Any suggestions, message me!]
