My Etsy favorites
My name is Tessa and I live in a small town in the south of the Netherlands, just below Eindhoven.
I live there with my cat.
My cat is all white, with black ears and a black tail. She is almost 5 years old and a bit crazy. Sometimes she just runs around the house like her tail is on fire. Her name is Poes, wich is the dutch word for cat. Her favorite toys are the simple little grey mice, she turns her back on all the fancy stuff I've got her.
I used to work at a theme park called De Efteling.
The park is all about fairytales, everything has something to do with it.
It was really fun working there. Especially because I operated rides in the rollercoaster section of the park.
Now I work at a big store that sells almost everything for your garden or home, and even clothes and animal stuff. I work at the clothing section.
In my free time I like to be creative in many ways.
I enjoy many crafts.
I'm crocheting a lot of stuffed animals. it's so fun to see them come to live, adding arms and legs.
Most of the time I crochet animals from designers like: Stip en haak, Lalylala, My Krissie dolls and Heidi Bears. I like my animals stripey and with bold colors.
I also enjoy stamping, coloring the images with my polychromos pencils, making cards with them.
I'm also very interested in project life.
I also like to watch movies/netflix, going to the zoo or the Efteling, and reading.
I like to be with my family.
In the summer months (june - september) I'm active in a group for the local flower parade.
14 groups build a big float and on the second sunday in september we have a parade.
The building proces takes 3 months (bending iron, welding it together, stick cardboard on it, glue paper on it, and painting) after that we only have 2 days to put al the flowers on it (200.000 in total per float).
We use dahlia's they are so pretty and have many colors and forms.
This year we were 9th. The theme was Jheronimus Bosch, he was an Dutch artist and made some crazy paintings.
2016 Fantoom 9th place out of 14
2015 Rhino 4th place out of 13

I know it's a lot, but I just started collecting
I wear size EU 39 / US 10.
I prefer short socks (just above the ankle) or knee socks, but I guess normal socks are fine too.
I like them colorful, striped, with polkadots and with fun images. I don't like brown, beige and other earthy colors.
Please no toe socks.
For swaps that requires more than one gift to be send.
I'm very pleased to get 1 gift worth the total amount you have to spend instead of several small gifts.
It's your choice what to do.
Please don't cover your mail art with clear packaging tape.
