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.
art journaling, mixed media, junk journals, making greeting cards and crafting in general. I discovered the 8 fold zines made out of A4 sized paper and love making them. 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).
Kagedfish (glue books), CreativelyFree2Bme, HomeBirdJen, Shemi Dixon, Maremi SmallArt, Tammy Brackett, The Rebookery, KissMyCreative, jennibellie, Diane H., LittleRavenInk.
Lately I am very highly interested in "Minimalism". I read books about it, watch youtube videos and listen to audiobooks. And of course, I am cleaning up my house in the meanwhile.
fantasy, drama, action movies. I really loved to see Avatar, the Matrix, Eragon, Hunger Games, Riddick.
I love the vintage romantic style, birds, forest animals (fox, deer, owl etc), butterflies, dragonflies, flowers, feathers, 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. I also have a thing for fashion models and nice artistic photographs.
Brands I really like:
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.
Last year Christmas I bought myself a kind of traveler's notebook from the brand Tinne+Mia. I 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).
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.
For backgrounds in my art journal I use bookpages and I have already several languages in my posession (some took years to find): I have dutch, english, french, italian, chinese, russian. If you are swapping with me and you have a very different language I would love to get some bookpages if you have it. I don't need to be able to read and understand it, I just like the look of other languages.
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).
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.)
