About Me

Hi, I'm Chelle! I have joined this site several years ago and I loved it but I have moved on. I am doing only a few private swaps. I have a 15-year old daughter who colors my days... Life is my love and I enjoy everything I do. I work at a University for Journalism and love the working with students! Friends and family are important to me and I spend as much time with them as possible.

I have studied some Spanish a while ago and after many years I loved to learn a new language.

My spare time I preferably spend creative. I love to make stamps, crochet, make ATC's and cards, sew, draw, paint glass and pottery, zentangle and journal. At the rare moments I don't want to be creative I love to read. I love dogs and cats, tea is my favourite drink and I absolutely adore the color green...

The things I do, I want to do right...so I will always try to make you something personal.

What I like

ATC Have been making ATC's for a while now and I love it! I am still learning... I love to try new techniques and materials... I love drawing, stamping, am discovering collages. . And a good chance there is some stitching on my ATC's... I also like to work with textile and yarn.

ZENTANGLE Just love to create with tangles...don't do it enough at the moment but am loving it still...

POSTCARDS I love receiving mail, and I love postcards. To me any postcard is a gift on my doormat.. I like postcards with seashells, feathers, umbrellas, cowboys or cowgirls, (children's books) illustrations, boots, dandelions, little red riding hood and the moon...

MAIL ART & HANDMADE POSTCARDS I love it! Nothing better than to come home after work and find a decorated envelope or postcard!

HAND LETTERING Difficult but so beautiful... still a newbie...but learning

ART JOURNAL Addicted to the weekly challenges I find on Facebook or here or elsewhere on the net! I do need some inspiration before getting started so this works perfect for me...

GELLI PRINTING Oh my...another addiction...


Things and themes I love the most:

  • Mail :)
  • GREEN, green, green is absolutely my color. Anything green makes my day!
  • Paper...notecards, postcards, writing paper, wrapping paper...anything paper
  • Masks & stencils for gelli plate
  • Cowgirls and cowboys
  • Children's book illustrations
  • languages other than Dutch or English
  • Postcards: see above
  • Rubber stamps / Cling stamps / Clear stamps
  • Snoopy / Peanuts
  • Shells / the beach
  • Hedgehogs
  • Butterflies
  • Boots (i.e. cowboyboots)
  • Flamingos
  • Traveling
  • Feathers
  • the moon
