About Me

UPDATE:

Last year I wasn't able to join any swaps, but recently I picked it up again and I'm so happy to join the lovely swaps. A big thank you to all the hosts for creating and hosting swaps.

Hi! I'm Rian, I live in the Netherlands in a small but beautiful town, Zutphen, together with my boyfriend (a famous poet in the Netherlands) and my dog Holly! I am a teacher in arts for children age 12-18.

Favorite Books

I have a passion for journaling/writing, walking, gardening and cooking and I like to read books about one of these passions.

Books I'm currently reading: * Dear friend and gardener - Beth Chatto Christopher Lloyd * Sakura - Naoko Abe * Eat better forever - Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall * Making art a practice - Cat Bennett

Favorite Crafts

Always looking for: Washi tape Traveler's Notebook Kaweco Stamps Japanese Stationery Beautiful paper for writing letters to penpals

Favorite food

I have my own vegetable garden and I try new vegs every year. I also love to cook in different ways, but my favorites are: - Asian (dim Sum, sushi, stir fry) - French cuisine (I love their sauces) - Italian food (all of it) - chocolate, especially the new combi's of Tony Chocolonely - coffee black and steaming hot - teas: green, white, ginger, jasmin

Favorite Movies

Magnolia Amelie Julie & Julia (actually...I like all films about food) American Beauty Requiem for a dream Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind The road to perdition Loving Vincent

Favorite washi colors

I love washi! Especially the ones with real Japanese pattern. My favorite washi colors are: Red (flower, dots, heart, geometric patterns) Blue (all different shades, also flowers, dots, geometric patterns) Pastel (flowers, little animals, geometric patterns)

Favorite PC

I love PC's with a vintage look and feel. Old photographs are the best!

I had never heard of Carla Sonheims art courses and I have learned lots more from your profile, so interesting! I used to live in Belgium so I am going to listen to that band you mention, Oscar and the Wolf.

Welcome to EU Happy Swaps, thanks for joining!

Just a reminder, tomorrow is the last day to send out the swap for Washi Washi! 3 :)

Last week I received an envelope from USA without any content :( There is no sign or text that can lead me to the sender. The only clue is an owl sticker and a purple washi on the back. If you wonder why I haven't rated you and you recognize this envied, please PM me!

Postcard roulette (unassigned) Dankjewel voor je retour kaartje hij is erg mooi en artsy. De beste wensen voor 2017 en happy swapping :)

Thank you so much for the lovely card you sent me! It really brightened my day! I will be writing you back soon! Hope you are doing well :-)

Hoi, as you're also in that recipe swap, I hope you don't mind a question :) Where do you buy your recipe cards, is there a store in the Netherlands that sells them, if so, which? I live close to the Dutch-German border and it would be helpful to know if/where I can buy them in the Netherlands :)

Dank je wel! Happy swapping :)
