My Creative and Bookblog
My foodie blog
In the month of June I am very busy with school, so I will be hosting and joining fewer swaps than normal! I will be back :)
I live with my BF in a small apartment in the Netherlands. I own 4 cats and a dog. I love animals, cooking, baking, reading, blogging, crafting and getting mail. I follow a creative art education. I collect owls. Also member of Postcrossing and a dutch snail mail community for years! I am also writing to a USA prisoner, I would love to include unused USA stamps but of course I can't get these in the Netherlands.
I would love to trade candy, tea, bookmarks, stationery, postcards, Project Life and journaling cards and vegetarian recipes.
Favorite colors: Lighter shades of blue, violet, pastels, greens, yellow. Less fond of: Overly used pink, gray and browns.
I am open to private swaps, please drop me a line if you want to swap something.

Such a sad day, when I have to add this part to my profile....
I got flaked by Tatiana24 for the Winter's Chocolate Swap. She is suspended. But it was an expensive swap to send out :(
I started Project Life in 2014! It isn't too easy yet to get supplies in the Netherlands, so I welcome anything Project Life or journaling cards related! :D

Just stopping by to say hello!
Hi there! A while ago I messaged you about this tag swap and you didn't have mine yet. I think they should have reached you by now, so today I made you new tags and I'm resending them! Just to let you know. xoxo
Thank you, Cynni, for joining my swap Fall/Autumn Postcard Swap - Int'l!
Glad you've liked them! I'll sure keep hosting them, summer is just a bit busy time for me. Here's the next round:
Thanks for participating, Anaryawe
Welcome to the Group
I think I found the brand of that card with the bird: it is probably Cavallini papers & co www.cavallini.com
Je envelop met thee spulletjes is onderweg. Ik ben benieuwd of het naar je zin is. Veel plezier !
I made an international version of the profile wish swap...it's called Normal is a Big Tent...
