About Me

Hi! I'm Sandra, a married mom of 2 boys and 2 girls between 18 and 11yo.

I am a passenger assistant at Schiphol Airport Amsterdam. I really like my job!

I never flake, so if you haven't received something from me, please pm me and I'll be more than happy to resend! :)

I always rate, but if by any weird chance I have overlooked rating you, just pm me and I'll rate right away. I know how frustrating it can be waiting for someone to rate you! :)

Oh, and I give hearts! Just for sending and meeting the requirements. I love ♥♥♥! :)

Favorite Music

I like lots of different styles and it depends on what I'm doing. Mostly I just turn on the radio and listen to whatever comes by.

I can appreciate Dolly Parton, Amy Winehouse, Adele and Pink when my house needs to be tidy...

I like Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli, Collabro and First Aid Kit when I have some me-time...

I love Christmas songs, Orthodox Celts (from Serbia) and the Dutch band 3J's!!!

Favorite Books

All time favorite is Margaret Mitchell's 'Gone with the Wind'. Really like the 'Twilight'-Saga too and Outlander and the Earth's Children series. Dan Brown's stories about Prof. Langdon and Game of Thrones... Can't help it but I love series, already knowing the characters and nothing to worry about when I reach the last page... Just grab the next book, yay! :)

Anything fiction in a historical setting with some romance and a happy ending! :) Reading is a big part of my life. I read about 40 books per year. I ♡ stories that take me away from everyday life, if you have any recommendations, please send them along with your swap! :)

Favorite Crafts

Creating art: Mail Art, Art Journaling, Mixed Media Art... Hotfix... Photography...


Other random things I love:

*Singleview touristy postcards or views of cities/nature... Northern Lights... Rainbows... Red barns... Sheep... Poppies... Snow(men)... Bicycles... Waterfalls... City by night... Paths, roads, crossings... I love postcards send naked with stamps.

*Tea (earl grey and chai are my faves of the moment, I am surprised how many different kinds there are of these teas!)...

*Books (English or Dutch, already read is no problem!)... Bright colours (pink, aqua, lime, purple, orange, yellow, red and white)... Polkadots and plaids... Lip gloss/balm... Nail polish... Glitter and bling bling... Kool-Aid (for dyeing wool)... Pencil Pouches...

*Washi/decorated tape... Stickers... My Little Pony... Care Bears... Positive, uplifting, funny quotes/sayings (like to stick them in my journal)...

*Anything for the garden, seeds, flags, windchimes... We grow flowers, veggies, herbs, fruit trees and more. In the ground, in borders, square meter gardening, pots and buckets. Our garden is fun!

Please, nothing gore, scary, violent since I like to display whatever received and I have young children. Thank you! :)
