About Me

Hi my name is Doerien and i live in a historic town in the Netherlands called Deventer. Here I live with my son and our cat. I work at a primary school as a teachers assistant.

I love to travel, making day trips, shopping (especially small unusual shops), visiting thrift shops, having a drink on a terrace with friends, paper crafts, reading crafty blogs and visit Pinterest.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy making snailmail for my pen pals -Cardmaking - Stamping - Mixed media - Making art from old jeans

Favorite Books

I don't read many books. The ones I do read are biography's of interesting persons or travel books. I do read a lot of magazines. I love the Flow and Daphnes Dairy and other magazines about craft, paper or interior design. I often re-use them again to make snailmail.

Favorite Music

I listen to lots of music but my all time favourite artists are Phil Collins/ Genesis, U2, Adele, Coldplay en most music of the Motown label especially the Four Tops.

Make me happy

I really like handmade items...I appreciate the time, effort, and creativity it takes to make something special....but I appreciate store bought items, too!! Anytime anyone takes the time to look for just that special something for me is very much appreciated.

Comment: Thank you for everything you sent. I like the handmade envelopes. I might see if I can figure out how to make a template for them as they are different from the ones I make.

Lyndall on Jul 9, 2017:

Hi Doerien! I just sent out your letter for TGIF let me know if you don't get it and I will send another one. It's coming from South Africa so it might take a little while (but hopefully not too long)! Have a good week, Lyndall.
