About Me

Hi, my name is Cindy and I am a middle aged woman (45+) living in the beautiful Netherlands. Living as a happy single, no kids. No pets anymore, I used to have tame rats as a pet. They ruined my sofa and clothes, so no more. I do voluntary work in an elderly home. I used to be a secretary but now on disability.

My hobbies:

art journaling, mixed media, junk journals, making greeting cards and crafting in general. Recently I discovered the 8 fold zines made out of A4 sized paper and love making them (and maybe ? receiving). I also really like gel plate printing. I have one penpal in Holland. I am addicted to YouTube. I also love reading books and walking (preferably in our lovely Wildlands Adventure Zoo).

My favorite YouTubers:

Crafting Mamas, Liz Drake, Maremi SmallArt, Tammy Brackett, The Rebookery, jennibellie, Diane H., LittleRavenInk.

My favorite movies:

fantasy, drama, action movies. I really loved to see Avatar, the Matrix, Eragon, Hunger Games, Riddick.

My favorite themes:

I love the vintage romantic style, birds, forest animals (fox, deer, owl etc), butterflies, flowers, the black and white combo, but also lots of colour, craft color and turqoise blue. I like bird cages, keys, hot air balloons, zentangles, art, airmail, nature, dogs, cats, cute things, Paris, spiritual and chinese/japanese items, Snoopy. Furtherly I love bling bling and metallic.

Brands I really like:

  • Papaya Art
  • Tim Holtz
  • 7 Gypsies
  • Gorjuss girls from Santoro Londen.

My favorite magazines are Flow, Happinez and Daphne's Diary. I am really excited to see your crafty endeavours.

I also like quirky things, strange things. I mean that you have to look twice.

Traveler's notebook:

Recently I bought myself a kind of traveler's notebook from the brand Tinne+Mia. I am really excited to start working in it. I want to make my own signatures in a junk journal way for it. The size is slightly different from a Midori, this one is 7 13/16 inch x 4 1/2 inch (or 20 cm x 11,5 cm).

What I would like to receive:

washitape samples, embellishments, die cuts, ephemera, doilies, inchies, twinchies, art tiles, beautiful napkins for backgrounds (only top layer is fine), shaped paperclips, stickers (no childish, no foam stickers or puffy ones - only flat stickers), your painted papers, your altered art, anything for my junk journals, letter set to write my penpal, quotes, cut-outs from magazines. Flat items only please.

In 2018 I want to make birthday cards for my family members and friends with inchies. If you have small items to help me make my inchies, I would love to receive some (like small punches)♥

Dislikes:

I am really turned off when things have a cigarette smell.

Spiders scare me.

Anything religious (except boedda's).

Wooden embellishments or other thick items.

Teabags (unless required in a swap I am joining).

Postcards (unless required in a swap I am joining).

Post-its (I really have so many, but hardly use them).

Flaked swaps (already):

  • @suephil Sue Phillips - WIYM Send 10 Happy Mail international. Angeled by coordinator isabellasnow. Sue got in touch with me - she has a big loss in her life to deal with. Wishing you the best, Sue.
  • @chasesmom = C L - Magpie Journal swap Int'l winter 2017. She has 8 ones!!!! Will be angeled by coordinator chelle523.

Mail out/in Netherlands:

I can send out mail from Monday till Friday. (So Saturday & Sunday mail goes out on Monday).

We receive mail on Tuesday till Saturday. (Sunday & Monday we get nothing.)
