About Me

Jan 2011: Due to several reasons I was forced to take a long break from swapping... I'll be trying to clear the ones I have on my rating-list. I hope 2011 will be an amazing creative year! :-)


badge I pledge to rate!


I am a photographer by birth, a designer by profession. I'm quite weird but in a good way, at least that's what my friends lovingly tell me.

If you detest smilies, don't communicate with me. I can't help it but I'm addicted to them. I find them quite helpful to give my words the necessary tone as English isn't my mother tongue and also because I do tend to communicate through facial expressions in daily life.

Most of my time gets consumed by my wonderful clever and oh-so-active little girl Sarah-Luna (8yo). She's the light of my life ^.^ She too loves her 3 Blythes and little petshops, Playmobil, lego,... She likes Barbie but not as much as her other toys. Beside those she loves drawing, painting, crafting, in short being creative...

My new love are dolls! Especially blythes but I've been drooling over some pullips, wonderfrogs and little apple dolls as well.

Favorite Music

To warn everybody: I'm quite eclectic ^_^

Robbie Williams, Loreena Mc Kennit, Mika, St Germain, Frank Sinatra, Jamiroquai, Abba, Queen, Valensia, Hooverphonic, Moby, Enya, Within Temptation, Ligabue,...

and eighties music..

I don't really dislike any colour but the least favourite ones are yellow and orange (although some things just need these colours to look fab!)

For dollclothes I don't have a special colourpreference as all my girls are very different ^_^

Sarah-Luna (8yo) Likes

She's a creative, playful girl who loves to learn new things.

At the moment her fav things are:

  • Littlest Petshop, the regular ones, the VIPs and the pocket-ones
  • Playmobil
  • crafty stuff
  • she loves to draw
  • she loves paint
  • glitter
  • stickers
  • fairies
  • cats
  • Tom & Jerry
  • Her 3 Blythes ( she's always looking for barbie-things like food, chairs, accessories,... as they're the same size, Barbieclothes are too big )
  • funky keychains
  • anything girly
  • Hello Kitty
  • Lego (she looooves to built and play with it, however we're still on the look-out for a nice lego-girl, they seem to have vanished here.)
  • My Little Pony
  • Harry Potter is her newest love!

Fav colours: red, blue, yellow, light green ( "and all colours except for grey unless it's pretty with the other ones" :-D )

As you can see she's a real girl with a pinch of tomboy in her :-D
(for lego, playmobil, barbie,... "played with"-condition is ofcourse ok, as long as it's clean and not broken ^_^ )

Comment: I hate to do this but I have yet to receive this swap. This swap was set in *October*, and I was told back in *November* that a remake would be re-sent, but yet it is now *January* and still nothing. I feel that I have been very patient. I would be happy to change this rating should the ATC arrive.

Comment: Hurray! Your ATC arrived! I almost expected a whoosh of steam as I tore open the envelope, a whiff of smoke and the grinding of gears.... and the card did not disappoint, with the hues and textures and details of authentic steampunkery! It would have earned a heart all on its own, for the craftsmanship and interest, but the accompanying letter that gave the background made it just that much more special. (And I've got to make some little cards like yours to tuck in with swap info - that's brilliant....)

Comment: The box arrived this afternoon. I didnt know what to make of it, its the single largest package ive ever had delivered to my home from someone not my parents. Its certianly the biggest parcel Ive ever recieved from swap-bot. Not only that but I couldnt wait and opened up the package to find hand wrapped gifts, I know I wrote that for the swap and all but I opened them and now my house is full of these goodies. Thank you SO MUCH! I especially like the little grey witch, she has become my Mr's favorit, You can tell, shes upstairs in our room.
Response: I'm sooooo happy you like it all, I really planned to make more myself but the work I was expecting in September came in October and messed up all my craft-planning... Glad to hear the little witch has stolen a heart or 2, I loved her so much when I saw her, she's so cute but not in a silly way. ^_^

Comment: Oh Peggy and Sara-Luna - what a grand package! I love every single thing more comments on your profile!
Response: I'm really glad you like everything! Sarah-Luna really had fun making that Goddess-rowhouse and I was so happy to finally alter one of these clocks for a swap ^_^ And that buttonfaery charm too, I love those but I haven't tried a "real" one yet (you know, the ones tied together with wire, not the glued down ones I make) Living in Belgium makes it nearly a mortal sin to buy less quality chocolate, it's by law expected that there is at least 30% real cacaobutter in "fine chocolates" (not talking about candybars) so they almost never leave a greasy taste behind in your mouth,... Mmmm chocolate :-D I'm so happy you enjoyed them! (sorry, I tend to ramble along these days...)

Comment: What a wonderful suprise!!!! I absolutely love and can use everything. The culinary herbs are perefect! I especially love the dried mushroom seasoning. Do you have any tips for how to use it? I also love the pot holders and dishtowel. Your reciper book was put together so nicely! Thank you for your dedication with this swap and a lovely package!
Response: I'm so happy you like everything! I would think the mushroom seasoning would be good in chicken- and meat dishes... but maybe also on pasta and risotto? (I haven't tried it myself yet) Or maybe in some chickensoup? (creamy or broth-style) But all I can say is: Experiment & Enjoy ^_^

Comment: thank you so much!!!!I love the christmas ornaments you sent me:)
Response: Oooh, we're so glad you like them! I actually was looking for the golden/silver-coloured beads in the store but Sarah-Luna insisted on using the glow-in-the-dark beads so Santa would see the tree better in the dark :-D

Comment: Fabulous package, thankyou Peggy and Sarah-Luna! Rachel is thrilled with it all, particularly the pink whale pencil sharpener! She will be writing back to you.
Response: We're so happy she likes everything! I hope she's doing all right at school, always scary, that next big step ^_^

Comment: Sorry to be so tardy with this rating, and thank you for the kind reminder. Funny thing (sort of) is that your ATC is displayed next to my monitor on the right, and your charm is hanging on the left. They are both great, and I thank you very much for making them for me.
Response: LOL, I've done the same with the totem trinket I've received ^_^ I'm really happy you like them!

Oh what a great package for our private swap! I love everything and can't really choose favorites but I do have to comment on that tiny button farie!!! I love her! Now, the chocolates??? Wow! I'm really a chocolate snob - most of it just tastes greasy and too sweet in my mouth, but the ones you sent - Wow - like melting silk with a delicate flavor that's not too sicky sweet at all! All the things you sent have special places in my heart and my home - thank you so much!!!

Masterbard on Sep 24, 2009:

Thanks for letting me into the Steampunk ATC swap! Just sent it today - a bit more postage than usual because of all the metallic parts.

I love steam - and victorian, and vintage, and Indiana Jones, miniatures, junk, AND little girls around six years old.... because that's how old my Katherine is :)

Hey! Would your Sara-Luna (lovely name) like to trade an ATC or a little toy with my girl? Kath is a real artist and loves making collages. She's very into animals, playing vet, horses, Barbie princesses/faeries/mermaids, ballet, and stickers - of course... We can get Hello Kitty stuff pretty easily here, if you'd like to plan a daughter-to-daughter swap... :)
