Favorite Movies

Science Fiction, especially Stargate and Star Trek. Further: Vampire movies, horror movies (not the slaughter movies, but mild horror), Harry Potter, Nightmare before Christmas, Junglebook (Disney), Hellboy 1 and 2, Pan's Labyrinth, all Tim Burton movies.

Favorite Crafts

Jewelrymaking, papercrafts, cross-stitching, sewing clothes for myself, actually I have tried many crafts and I like all of them. I recently started with ATCs and I love to do that. So now I went to the inchies, even smaller objects of art. I love making glassbeads, but I don't have the room in my house to make a safe workingspace.

About Me

I am a 56 year old woman. I am married already 30 years with the same man and still in love with him. We don't have children, by choice. We have had cats in the past. I have worked since I was 16 years old and nowadays I work on a post office, which is easy when I have to send my swaps. I live in a house with a small garden with several bird feeders. I am a diabetic, so no sugarry things for me. I live on the Atkins diet for many years now and this is the right diet for me. My favorite hobby is reading. After that comes crafting, movies and television. And after that internet and postcard swapping.

Favorite Books

Fantasy Books, especially Darren Shan, JRR Tolkien and Terry Brooks. Further the Egyptian books of Wilbur Smith, all books with King Arthur and/or Merlin and similar books, Vampire books: favorite are Anne Rice books, the Eragon books, Fairy Tale books, the Artemis Fowl books, Harry Potter, the Moomin books of Tove Jansson, the Twilight Saga.

Postcards I like to receive

I would like to receive postcards from characters from comics (or comic books). I especially like the Moomin characters and cards from Kaj Stenvall. Further I like postcards with a 'fantasy' theme like fairy tales and other fantasy. I very much like postcards with illustrations from childrens books. I will also be happy with postcards from wildlife of your country, especially birds. And I allways like beautiful Christmas postcards, even when it's in the summer. 3D Postcards, aka lenticular postcards. But the most I love glittery, sparkly postcards, the more sparkles the better.

Favorite colors

Pastel colors and especially blue pastels and yellow pastels, further I love all glittery, sparkly things.

Random things I like

Flowers, garden birds (I have 5 bird feeders in my tiny garden) ring-tailed lemurs, natural soaps (Lush), patchouli and other Indian fragrances, the smell of lemons and limes, lemonade (artificial sweetened, I'm a diabetic), fairies and Fairy Tales, gnomes, whitches, wizards, elves, sparkles and glitter, crystals and crystal beads, Marimekko blouses and shirts, Moomin, Johnny Depp, Nightmare before Christmas stuff, pens especially quality ones, stickers, bookmarks (I try to put a matching bookmark in every book I'm reading), Classic Pooh, Classic Piglet, handmade lampwork beads, silver, Vampire related stuff, Christmas, Easter, Halloween, nature, cats, meercats, owls, birds of prey, friendly people, Vogue Picture Records, stamps with cartoon characters, artificially sweetened chocolate and sweets, coffee (the stronger the better), barbeque, French cheeses, clip-art software, hedgehogs, squirrels, pigs, low-carb foods, Snoopy and Woodstock, Pine-tree scented shower-gel, soap and bodymilk, Ginger scented shower-gel, soap and bodymilk, lingerie from Dutch designer Marlies Dekkers, white lilys, lily of the valley, honeysuckle, the Moon and the Stars.

Things I don't like

Make up, Perfumes, wooden beads, beads of bone, gold, dogs, tea, alcohol, tobacco and tobacco smoke, food with Carbohydrates (actually I'm a carbohydrate addict, I adore sugarry things, but I can't have them :o( ) vanilla scented stuff.

I really don't like laminated bookmarks. If you're my swap partner for a handmade bookmark swap, please don't laminate the bookmark!!!! Thanks!

Favorite Television

True Blood, Desperate housewives, Sanctuary, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Babylon 5, Hercules and Xena, Buffy the Vampireslayer, Angel, Twin Peaks, Stargate and Stargate Atlantis, Stargate Universe.

Comment: Thanks for a delightful swap package! I love the ATC -- especially the way you printed the row of houses -- very cool effect. The overall atmosphere of the snowy winter night is exceptional. Thanks also for your original art greeting card. I remember liking her on your Flickr. She will go in my album of favorite hand-made cards. Thanks also for using postage stamps. They are all lovely. You were a great asset to this swap and I thank you! <3<3<3

Comment: Oh Linda, I could not have received a more perfect canvas if I had made it myself! It is stunning. Truly. You already know I love the color combo but the knight really, really sets it off beautifully. I was going to ask you how you made him and was thrilled that you had included that info in your note! I sincerely love it. It will hold a special spot on a bookshelf in my medieval bedroom. Thank you so much for a perfect canvas and thank you for hosting this!

Sage still speaks of you and you will always be her secret fairy! The fairy on our Christmas tree is velthemia and I smile every time she goes up. Many thanks and please let me know if you ever need supplies. Blessings, Mona

Comment: Thank you a million times for the amazing sending :)! I can´t believe that I´m so lucky to get not just one but two incredibly beautiful bookmarks! The Moomin-one has got lovely autumn-colours and I love the quote on the back. And the fairy one is just stunning! We also seem to have a lot in common, as I collect Moomin-books too, only with different languages. Thanks for reading my profile with such a care. I´d give you ten more hearts if I could. Hugs and best wishes!

Comment: Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow! You sent so many wonderful things! I'm afraid that my package won't measure up to the goodies that you made for me.... I love the pieces to frame - and you sent twice as many as we agreed upon! They are all so beautiful - once we move I want to mat them in black, frame them, and then hang them all in a grouping in our new house! And thanks for the bookmark and the card - I love each and every item you sent me! You do beautiful work and are VERY generous!
