About Me

With my two daughters I have a wonderful time. I'm studying again and also working full time. Happily graduated! I'm still single, but wish I would meet the man meant for me.

I like beautiful, handmade things. Scrap booking, handmade cards, handmade postcards are crafts I like very much. But I also make my own soap and simple jewellery. I make my own household products, almost all.

I like to learn and create all the way.

Favorite Music

There are a variety of music I like. I just go by how I feel at a certain moment. The music I most familiar with is soul music I grew up with from before 2000.

Favorite Books

I am now more interested in health and history books, which simply tell the truth.

Favorite Television

**edited March 17, 2016

I do not watch tv anymore:) Feeling happy and relieved:))

Favorite Crafts

Scrapbooking, handmade cards, handmade postcards, homemade soap, homemade bodylotion and jewellery. I make almost anything I use.

I'm taking a pause of ATC's!!!


I am not a collector. So you don't have to send extra's.

  • No Disney dolls and or pictures
  • No store bought note or greeting cards
  • No store bought post cards
  • No teas
  • No to things for the kitchen s.a. magnets
  • No sweets at all or (containing gelatine)
  • No stickers
  • Please don't send me little pieces of
    (patterned) paper or card stock
  • Please no more bookmarks... I received too much bookmarks from swappers:-(
  • Also don't send me little stamped images.

I'm taking a pause of making ATC's and I do not collect ATC's, so please don't send me ATC's.

And yes, I do pass on to others, but still it's too much:-)


I would love to receive anything handmade by you.

  • handmade paper (mini) album
  • knitted sluffs or crocheted sluffs (shoelike)
  • knitted or crocheted hats (not too tight, though)
  • knitted or crocheted armwarmers
  • only herbal teas (if I join a tea swap). Otherwise please don't send me teas.


And further:

  • handmade jewellery
  • handmade rubber stamps
  • rubber stamps
  • acrylic (or clear) stamps
  • stencils for art journaling
  • anything neat and useful

I love all beautiful colours, but dark brown, old pink and lime green do steel my heart.

@mgallardo68 I guess some swappers are just wicked. She went way back to February 2017 to rerate me on a swap and change a 5 with heart into a 3. Sad!

Comment: It's been more than 3 months and I still haven't received anything. Offered for you to send the swap via email instead of snail mail but no reaction from you. I'll rerate if I receive something. EDIT: Oct 6, 2021 I can't believe that I received this swap today, more than 1,5 years later. I hope you're alright! Changing this from a 1 to a 3 because communication was missing completely.

Comment: This email swap ended on April 18. I sent a PM on April 27 and May 2, checking in with the person and saying I'd be willing to accept a PM that fulfilled the swap requirements. Messages were never read nor did I receive a response.

Response: Thank you and TFR💕!
Comment: I miss my friends too :( (sorry for late rating! I was busy in past week)

Comment: Oh, I miss my youngest daughter and my granddaughter. I'm so glad my oldest lives with us, it would make things worse if we didn't have our "sweetie" with us. No crafting supplies? Oh I think I'd go nuts. Stay safe!

Comment: Oh no hope your house gets finished soon! Wishing you the best :)
Response: Thank you and TFR💕!

Hello from Barbara in California. I am your postcard pen pal partner. Looking forward to hearing from you too!

Hello from Malaysia

gothbarbie on May 9, 2019:

Thank you for all the lovely goodies in the package you sent! The handmade cards are lovely and the postcards are so beautiful! I'm not sure if I can part with those... : )

Hi Lucine! I'm your partner for "My Latest Inspiration". The most recent craft I did was a mini scrapbook using some of my kawaii memo pages and cardboard (and a LOT of packing tape!). It actually turned out pretty neat! I just started joining kawaii swaps (and collecting) and I was trying to see what I could do with it other than write little notes and use it for Pocket letters. I found some YouTube videos with great instructions on how to put together the mini scrapbook and how to store some memo pages and stickers. YouTube is a great resource for inspiration, and so many people post great tutorials! I hope this helps you start your next project!

Hallo Lucine! Wat leuk om een Nederlandse mede-vegan te treffen via de GettIng to know you swap! Dat zag ik tenminste op je instagram profiel, dus ja dat heb ik ook bekeken evenals je blog en Flickr ;) Mooie shabby chic tag heb je recent gemaakt! Geen tv meer kijken scheelt vast een hoop tijd... Maar ik vind het soms toch wel heerlijk ontspannend. Hoewel ik eigenlijk zelden "real time" televisie kijk maar altijd selectief: opnames of op de computer. See you in a future swap!

"Getting to know you" swap:

Hello! I enjoyed reading through your profile and getting to know you. Looks like you like just about everything handmade. I get it, nothing like handmade when you know there was loving put into making it, right? Hope you had a lovely Easter.

Cariboocarol on Apr 1, 2018:

GettIng to know you swap: Hello--after reading your profile, I started "following" you on Instagram--that is where I post my outgoing crafts and incoming mail.....I see you like stamping too. I have made a few ATCs but I favor pocket letters, I think.....I am not an artist but I enjoy seeing other people's work! Hope you had a lovely Easter---we had cold and snow!
