I'm in a very bad period of life right now because of losing my job, now working in a new very shitty one and also splitting up with my BF after being together for 6 Years. For now I'm on medication because of an depression. I'm in need of a new place to live and also need a better (paying) job.
FOR THE DUTCH SWAPPERS: voor mijn toekomstige huisje ga ik nogal wat nodig hebben qua nuttige basis dingen als servies, huishoud textiel en dat soort spul meer (maar wel allemaal in mijn stijl, wil fris opnieuw beginnen). Dit zou dus zeer welkom zijn voor een swap. Ik probeer voor mijn inrichting een combinatie te maken tussen brocante maar dan zonder de zoete kleurtjes, victoriaans en een vleugje van het donkere van het gothic (maar niet te). De meubelen die ik heb zijn bijna allemaal donker eiken en ik wil mijn aankleding in warme donker rood/roze/paars tinten aangevuld met grijs (donker en licht) en taupe. Voor een indruk van mijn stijl kan je ook op mijn wists profiel kijken. Ik hou niet van wit-beige-geel tinten in huis
There's a lot I like, I'm a classic / Victorian goth like girl (who wears regular basics to work) but I do like colored things for accessories and socks (not so much for clothes, I wear black and some dark colors). I prefer to be alone or in a small group is stead of going to to a big party. I love Tuesdays, it's just me and my cat spending our day in my craftroom. I love being in my own world without to much interference from the big bad outside.
I like the small part of nature I find in the city, flowers, leaves, pretty bugs, small birds. I do pick up fall leaves (and dry them), chestnuts etc
Vintage, strange things, lace, purple, pink, Bordeaux red, black, silver, cats, bats, flowers, old books, my computer, polka dots, flowers (especially violets), cute things, cherry's, anything DIY, corsets, antiques, Victorian fashion, 40's fashion, art nouveau, Cupcakes, apple pie, the smell and taste of cinnamon, 50's fashion, pinup, burlesque, cupcakes, animals, history, dark romance, historical places, old dolls (before the 1950's), Victorian mourning culture, fairytales (I like the original ones over the Disney version), Myths, steampunk
textiles in all ways, sewing, knitting, felt, leather, etc.
polymer clay, jewelery making, silver clay, bobbin lace, soap making, miniature collaging (most of the time inside buttons and spoon pendants)
I like to try new things!
MUSIC: dark wave, new wave, neofolk, alternative, classical music, 80's, EBM, (dark) electro, some (folk/viking) metal, death rock.....
Some bandnames: Der Blutharsch, Laibach, VNV Nation, Bauhaus, Wolfsheim, Rosa Crux, Die Verbannten Kinder Eva's, Das ich, Skyforger, Eisregen, Jack off Jill, Sopor Aeternus, The Cure, Qntal, Otyg, Storm, Suicide Commando, Autumn Tears, Welle:Erdball, Deine Lakaien, Tanzwut, Schelmisch, Stille Volk, Fyrdung, Mortiis, Volksweerbaarheid, Hagalaz' Runedance, Lacrimosa, Depeche Mode, Joy Division
BOOKS: craft books, fashion (history) books. other books i read in dutch and are therefore not that interesting here
MOVIES: historic drama, arthouse, Scandinavian children's movies, fantasy and fairytale movies
I don't like violent and horror movies, not because the scary part but because the gore and violence.
I'm destashing a lot of my craft supplies as I probably have to give up my craft room after I've moved (and craft in my living room or bedroom) so please only send stuff to me that I can use.
For my new home I want to make myself a nice nature themed vintage / zakka like patchwork blanket in purple, red and pink. I need 20x20 (8x8 inch) squares of cotton fabric to make it.
I'm doing a project with nature themed post stamps so if you can use those for sending your swaps to me you make me very happy!
At the moment I'm working on a project with glitter, stickers (small and bright), fun candy wrappers, sprinkles and other cake decoration, lots of plastic junk (toy parts) and other kind of weird findings. Everything in weird, tiny and bright colored is welcome, so if you have something laying around...
You can see what kind of things I like at my whist profile (link on top of this profile).
I LIKE THINGS TO BE VINTAGE, TRIFTED AND HANDMADE! Used items don't have to be in perfect condition, I love them to tell a story
about anything Dutch, for example: dutch candy (drop (liquorice), stroopwafels (caramel waffles)), dutch fabrics, dutch tourist things, dutch (crafty) magazines, tea, European chocolate
home made bags (see my website: www.viola-odorata.nl I do swap for them), craft supplies, (stenzo) fabrics, I own a button machine so if you have any requests
and a lot more of course.
Because of allergies please no heavy synthetic sensed anything, beauty products, no not silver (metal) earrings(horn, bone, acrylic is also wearable) and no food flavored with paprika and red peppers.
Candy and food is only allowed in commercial wrapping so no home made :-( From inside the EU homemade is fine.
I'm not into scrapbooking and cardmaking, religious stuff, gold colored jewelery (although I do like brass and copper), colors that hurt your eyes (like neon), yellow orange and bright green, most Disney characters (I do like Alice in wonderland, aristo cats and Bambie), Diddle, clowns, Dora, teddy bears, Pokemon, Sponge Bob, Barbie, Christmas items (I don't celebrate it), I don't drink coffee (I do like coffee candy and drinks like Tia Maria), I'm not fond of sweet pastel colors (I like grayish an jewel tones the best)
Don't send me stuff you wouldn't like to receive yourself!
If you want a private swap with me, just ask me!
I prefer using stamps over barcode stickers, sending and receiving.I don't collect them myself but i think it makes a package more fun! I also use them in crafts sometimes. If you are my partner and a stamp collector let me know, I'll try to use a lot of different ones.
I'll try to reuse the envelopes and boxes if possible.
Sending (priority) to the USA takes about 7 days, to Russia even 12 days (when not held down by customs, if so it will take several weeks extra :-( 6 weeks happened before)
Hearts are for swaps send with love, they don't have to necessarily have extras in it. I rate you as soon as possible so you know I received the swap and I won't rate you a 1 or 3 before sending you a message so you can explain. Please do the same for me. DON'T FORGET TO RATE YOUR SWAP HOST!!!!
KARMA IS STRONGER THAN ANY RATING!!!!
