About Me

Hi, my name is Lindie, @LinSoles on instagram. I currently live in the Netherlands with my boyfriend and our 4 cats. For a introduction from them, check out my instagram stories.

I was born in South Africa and moved to the Netherlands in 1999. Really still miss the South African weather.

My creativity only emerged a few years ago but now I am addicted. Crafting is kind of my therapy now. I enjoy Gelli printing a lot and have been dipping my toes into drawing. Still need lots of practice. Mixed media is so much fun and so versatile. I am a huge Dina Wakley and Maremi fan. I also kind of have a paper addiction. I own a die cut machine and time somehow flies when I am cutting out dies.

I sometimes create cards for swaps but have not taken the step yet to selling them. Maybe one day...

I love sending/receiving mail and have done quite a lot of swaps on instagram the last couple of years.

Hoping to make some new friends here and have a lot of fun in making swaps.

Thanks for stopping by πŸ€—

I like a lot of tea, green is my favourite but I have a lot of flavours. I am not that fond of sweet fruity teas and some black teas like earl grey. A black tea with interesting flavours I am willing to try though,


If it works out cheaper or better feel free to send swaps in multiple envelopes. If you have me for a bulkier piece feel free to mail it flat instead of tied up(like flipbooks).

As postage is costly for international mail it won't effect my rating at all. The same goes for when you are late sending, just let me know. Life happens sometimes.

Art Pages

If the size is not set then I prefer a 5x7 page. I also join 4x6 swaps and that is fine too. I punch holes in the sides of my pages to add them to a disc journal. So when creating 2 pages, please don't add bulky or important features close to one of the left and on the other page the right side, that way I can add them as a spread. When creating only one page, please do that on the left side. That way I don't loose important details when punching the mushroom holes for the discs. And don't forget to have fun while creating.
