Hi I'm Kim. I started here on September 25, 2010 and I love it. I'm also a postcrossing-addict (www.postcrossing.com) and BIG Etsy-fan.
I'm 37 and I'm a Kindergarten teacher, a creative journaler, a painter and I'm learning to work with clay.
Since april 2, 2011 I have my own art studio to give journaling, painting and ATC workshops in Weesp, a small town in the Netherlands. The Studio is in a BEAUTIFULL 150 year old fort.
I LOVE snailmail and recieving packages in the mail. English is not my native language - so if anything isn't clear - or if you just have a question - feel free to ask!
Some of the places I have travelled to: Paris (lots of times), Stockholm, Prague, Dublin, Canada (for a wedding, Orlando USA (for a wedding), Uganda (to visit a volunteer friend - WOW!).
I will ALLWAYS finish the swap I sign up for. If you don't receive a swap from me, please let me know before rating me, so I can do something about it. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!
I love most kinds of music, I'm a big fan of Lisa Loeb and other singer-songwriters.
I read just about anything, but no mystery.
and will add more later...
I wasn't much of a fan of fantasy - well with one exeption - I LOVE David Eddings. But lately a friend of mine is lending me books in the genre - and I'm learning to like it.
Anything with a happy ending :)))
It HAS to have one, or I won't like it.
I'm starting a list I will keep adding to:

There are so many crafts i like - and even more I'd like to learn, like sewing.
Crochet (a little)
Working with clay ATC's Zines (although I get such wonderfull ones I find sending mine a bit scary)
I recently started my own little company (www.dutchessoforange.nl) giving creative workshops in the town where I live. I'm mainly teaching painting and journaling.
