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:

Kagedfish (glue books), Crafting Mamas, Shemi Dixon, Maremi SmallArt, Tammy Brackett, The Rebookery, KissMyCreative, 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, 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:

  • 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.

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.

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).

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.)

Song Lyrics # 3

And I'll rise up, I'll rise like the day, I'll rise up, I'll rise unafraid, I'll rise up, and I'll do it a thousand times again, And I'll rise up, High like the waves, I'll rise up, in spite of the ache, I'll rise up, and I'll do it a thousand times again, For you.

Rise Up - Andra Day

Great powerful song to lift your spirits :D It's been helping me with my personal struggles, hope it can do the same for you!

Song Lyrics #3 Electronic

Kesha - Rainbow

I used to live in the darkness Dress in black, act so heartless But now I see that colors are everything Got kaleidoscopes in my hairdo Got back the stars in my eyes, too Yeah, now I see the magic inside of me

I really like the lyrics in this song. For me it means that she's coming from a bad place and finally sees the light in her life again.

Sorry. I was thinking that this swap is via email and hence hadn't posted anything on your profle earlier.

Song Lyrics #2 Electronic

I love the song, 'Try Everything ' from the movie Zootopia. This has been sung by Shakira and every word is so meaningful.

I messed up tonight I lost another fight I still mess up but I'll just start again I keep falling down I keep on hitting the ground I always get up now to see what's next Birds don't just fly They fall down and get up Nobody learns without getting it won I won't give up, no I won't give in Till I reach the end And then I'll start again Though I'm on the lead I wanna try everything I wanna try even though I could fail I won't give up, no I won't give in Till I reach the end And then I'll start again No I won't leave I wanna try everything I wanna try even though I could fail
