About Me

Hi! I'm Rian, I live in the Netherlands in a small but beautiful town, Zutphen, together with my boyfriend (a famous poet in the Netherlands) and my dog Holly! I am a teacher in arts for children age 12-18. Last August I managed to open and fill my Etsy shop. I like to illustrate, paint with acrylics (I love Lynn Whipple and Carla Sonheim) and create jewelry out of trash. I have signed up for Carla Sonheims this year's class Y is for yellow. I also signed up for last year's class Year of the spark. It's really inspiring to see and talk to people from all over the world about art :) So I definitely have an interest in art!

More about my life and the things I love: - coffee in the morning - tea all day (white, green and jasmin) - doglover (especially my own Jack Russel Holly) - nailpolish (red is favorite) - dresses & skirts I almost never wear jeans - Asian food - foodie (like to try! Love to cook!) - love graphic designs - sculpturing - shoe addict (love the brand ART!) - gardening (I have my own greenhouse) - my chickens called Attila de Hen, Henkje, Hendrickje - the color blue....of course :) My eyes are also blue! - start running (goal 5K) - red wine! - flowers (last summer I visited the gardens of Monet) - photography - trying to read one book an month (my boyfriend reads two books a week..hahaha) - seriously addicted to cookbooks. I think my cookbooks cover 5 meters :) - lover of old cars like VW beetle and camperbus + 2CV (unfortunately they are to expensive, so I have my own collection of small ones. I would love to rent a real one just for a weekend) - Swedish design

Things I dislike: - black tea - I like to see and draw cats, but I'm allergic to them

Favorite Music

Pop (I grew up in the 80's and 90's) I am a fan of the 'old' Madonna. I stopped buying cd's after Confessions on a dancefloor. This one is perfect listening while running. Recent likes are Belgian bands like Oscar and the Wolf. I also bought music from Some Swedish bands.

Recently I discovered Jazz. I love it! I would like to Go to de Dutch North Sea Jazz next Year.

Favorite Crafts

Washi tape Origami Stamp carving (I love Ishtar Olivera) Making stationery Drawing with charcoal Painting with acrylics Writing letters Journaling in my Midori

Favorite food

  • Asian (dim Sum, sushi, stir fry)
  • French cuisine (I love their sauces)
  • Italian food (all of it)
  • chocolate, especially the new combi's of Tony Chocolonely
  • coffee black and steaming hot
  • teas: green, white, ginger, jasmin

Favorite Movies

Magnolia Amélie Julie & Julia (actually...I like all films about food) American Beauty Requiem for a dream Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind The road to perdition

Favorite washi colors

I love washi! Especially the ones with real Japanese pattern. My favorite washi colors are: Red (flower, dots, heart, geometric patterns) Blue (all different shades, also flowers, dots, geometric patterns) Pastel (flowers, little animals, geometric patterns)

I don't like black or other dark colors!

Favorite PC

I love PC's with: - vintage VW beetle, 2CV - Asian style (geisha, cherry blossom, pagode, boeddha, etc.) - photography - art - colors blues and reds - dogs especially jack russel

Comment: De mini art journal is goed aangekomen, hoor. Ik heb ook gemerkt dat de post veel trager is, vooral naar het buitenland. Helaas is die broche losgeraakt. Ik zal de vogel weer vastplakken;) Bedankt!

Just a reminder, tomorrow is the last day to send out the swap for Washi Washi! 3 :)

Last week I received an envelope from USA without any content :( There is no sign or text that can lead me to the sender. The only clue is an owl sticker and a purple washi on the back. If you wonder why I haven't rated you and you recognize this envied, please PM me!

Postcard roulette (unassigned) Dankjewel voor je retour kaartje hij is erg mooi en artsy. De beste wensen voor 2017 en happy swapping :)

Thank you so much for the lovely card you sent me! It really brightened my day! I will be writing you back soon! Hope you are doing well :-)

Hoi, as you're also in that recipe swap, I hope you don't mind a question :) Where do you buy your recipe cards, is there a store in the Netherlands that sells them, if so, which? I live close to the Dutch-German border and it would be helpful to know if/where I can buy them in the Netherlands :)

Dank je wel! Happy swapping :)
