Hallo, My name is Neeltje. I am an Arts&Crafts teacher. I love to make textile art. My biggest pleasure is to create things and spreading them around the world. Love to get inspired by other creative people.
23-10-2016 Being a member of Swap Bot for a year now I have to make a statement. A lot of the wonderful swaps demand sending naked postcards. Although I love cancelled stamps on my postcards, too many times your beautiful artwork was damaged by the postal companies machinery. That hurts. Therefore I beg you to send all your swaps to me in an envelope, even if the swap rule says you have to send naked. I use most of the envelopes in my journal/scrapbook, so nothing gets spilled. I will give you an extra heart for it 💙💜💛❤💚
As an Arts&Crafts teacher I like all kinds of Crafts. My favourite however is making textile art on my sewingmachine. I sort of developed my own style and it has no name. Some people refer to it as crazy quilting and it has some resemblance with that. However, for quilting I don't have enough patience. I just like to put colorful fabric to a background and let it happen.
So, I like to sew, knit, crochet, collage, origami, macramé and zentangle.
All the colors of the world are wonderful. I love them all. It's thrilling to go out into nature and discover the most excuisite combinations. If you look closely you can see so many wonderful things, even in a raindrop. I am a big admirer of design-seeds.com
Here are some things I love, amongst many other things, in no particular order. If I come up with something I'll add it to the list.
• Small birds
• Lime; color, taste & smell
• Old maps
• Wild Flowers
• Sea Shells
• Looking at the sky
• Fiber Art Magazines
• Bare trees
• Watercolor drawings
• Handmade paper
• Cut out cardboard packaging
• Old Newspapers
• The smell of cinnamon
• Song of a blackbird
• Handmade Wooden Spoons
• Small tins with candy, herbs or spices
• Fancy colored tie wraps & bread clips
• (vintage) Botanical Drawings
If possible, please use real stamps to send your mail. They are little worlds of wonder and give me a little insight in your country.
Please don't sent blank, undecorated envelopes. Only an address and a stamp is so boring. It's a waste of space. Just draw, write, glue, stick, scratch, scribble, clutter or mess ANYTHING on to it to make it personal. I will cherish it for ever.
There are many books I like. Historic novels, modern literature, thrillers. I enjoyed The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson but also Labyrinth by Kate Mosse. Carlos Ruiz Zafon, Isabel Allende and Paul Theroux, and many many others.
My taste in music is very divers. It goes from Pop to Opera. Whenever I hear something interesting I try to find out more and put it on my favorites on Spotify. If my hart makes a little jump when I hear the song again, it stays on my list.
