About Me

Hi, my name is Catherine,I live in a small town in the south of the Netherlands. I married my high school lover and together we have 2 children and our cat Sushi. My background is in textiles and fashion design. But nowadays I like to PLAY with different media like paper,collage,paint...I love to make prints with the gelli plate on all kinds of different papers and ephemera. I share my mail-art on instagram ( if you want to be surprised, do not peek!). I like a lot of different things, so when you swap with me : just follow your heart ...Thanks!

Things that make me happy

*I recently discovered how much I love to work with FAIRY images (my inner child is so happy now!).

*I love to create with GLASSINE enveloppes and manilla/kraft TAGS.

*Always in for TINY bits of lace, tule, translucent fabric or paper and tiny buttons or brads.

*DIE CUTS are great (especially Tim Holtz ones)

*HANDWRITING (on shopping lists, letters, invoices, receipts etc.)

*Vintage BOOK PAGES or cutouts for example from old schoolbooks or children's books.

*any other vintage or vintage style EPHEMERA like tickets, maps, handwritten letters, office supplies like ledger papers, food labels/packaging, security envelopes, love!

*SHHHHHH (I have an ENVELOPE addiction and make my envies myself when possible).

*I love coffee and tea alike... I am discovering herbal teas, like lavender with chamomille and lemon grass (it helps with the fairy's too!)

*recycling/reusing is cool and so is THRIFTING. I love old paper items (can you tell?).

*JAPANESE design is an all time favourite...fashion, silk, origami, traditional patterns, kawaii cuteness (makes me smile).

*EMBROIDERY/sewing/stitching (also,on paper). I would love to learn about sashiko!

*I am very happy to be part of the swapbot community and do my best to keep it a SAFE place. Thanks and happy swapping!

Postcards

I do not know what I prefer on postcards, the front or the back! Handwriting and stamps make it very special to me. So I will like anything you send me!

I prefer my postcards send naked and I would love to see your handwriting, so write me a little something please

C-O-L-O-R

I love colors, all of them! Bright, pastel,watercolors, aged surfaces, rainbow, metallics...as long as it is done with taste!

Dutch Mail:

Mail posted in the weekends doesn't go before the next monday,sorry!

POSTAL UPDATE 01-2020: there are new guidelines for mail send overseas. Every envelope that does not contain documents only and is a little bulky, will be considered as a package (even a teabag counts as bulk). For me personally, this will mean sending my swaps as flat as possible, and sometimes, without extras.

THEMES:

Themes I like are : vintage encyclopedia - alphabets - handlettering/quotes - travel/maps - airmail related items- birds - japanese (textile) prints - watercolor effects - flowers/botanical prints- beautiful illustrations.
