About Me

Hello,

I am a happy go easy colorful person who likes the simple things in life like cooking, knitting an now swap-botting :). I am also very outdoorsy and like to go camping, walking, running and cycling.

I used to be a backpacker but 8 years ago I moved to the french part of Belgium and now I have a lot of animals so it has become a little more difficult to travel for a long time.

I am an independent programmer. I have no kids but a LAT-boyfriend Kris. I hope that one day we find our dream-place where I can open a little camping and/or B&B and invite handicapped our troubled kids to help us during the summer.

I am from Belgium and yes I do speak and write our 3 official languages and also English. Dutch is my native language so don't kill me please if I write mistakes when using the other ones..

I have a little problem with the fast pace of life, especially the "busy busy busy' and the "look how great my life is on facebook' people and I am really looking to find another way to reconnect.

I believe in Karma and (try) to treat everybody and everything in the same way that I would like to be treated. Why would I otherwise be here then to treat people with respect ?

I don't handle aggressiveness very well. I had to deal with a lot of it as a child and now it makes my stomach turn. So if you don't like the swap I send you that's ok but please no need to get aggressive about it.

Take care An

Favorite Crafts

I like to knit and to crochet, especially decorations because clothes always tend to be to big.

I would like to restore my old VW panelvan all by myself but it I haven't gotten further yet then cutting a door :)

17/01 I am going to have a go at pocket letters :)

Flaking and to angel

I don't flake I don't see the reason why. I am here to have fun not to spread negativity.

I will angel and I will resend if necessary just contact me please.

I am not here to rate people. If you have given your best at the swap you will receive top marks from me even if it arrives 1 year later

Likes and Dislikes

DISLIKES

I don't like it too much to write down what I dislike. I tend to have a feeling that negativity attracts negativity so I try to avoid it.

My feeling is that if you don't like it yourself don't send it to someone else either.

LIKES

I like everything that puts an instant smile on your face: puppies, the sun, autumn leafs, cake... my donkey calling me in the morning... I can make a long list of things but in the end I am here because life is getting to fast to serious and I want some fun and smiles. So if it is fun and it makes me smile I LIKE

I like handmade cards (and handmade stuff) and like to make my cards myself although I probably suck at it. But I like the creativity and fun of it and I try to do it with a lot of love too :)

Make me happy with

I thought a little about this and me and my boyfriend really like to spend our time cooking so I think if you would send me a favorite recipe in your swap that would certainly really make me happy

Also I have started a crochet or knit square swap (15cm or 6inch) because it would be super fun to make a blanket out of squares made by different people. So you will make me really happy with a square too

And since I am having a go at snailmail your favorite snailmail examples can always make me happy too

Sending

I put my swaps on send the minute I have put them in the mailbox. Even if it is a weekend.

I always put my adress on it in case the post finds that I didn't put enough stamps. It happens sometimes because I like to add stuff to my swaps. I will resend after. So if you want to rate me on the stamp date, go ahead but I prefer to rate people on the love they put in it.

Bad rating explanation

17/1 I got a 3. But 1 day later I get a 5+ heart for the same swap using the same cards. I think that it's self-explanatory.

Comment: The card I received is not a New Year card, it's not a greeting card and looks as if it were handmade. Very sad. =( P.S. After receiving a 3 Anneke offered to make it up to me. This is my reply: "Hi. As for "making up to me" - I do not see the point, really. It is supposed to be done according to the swap requirements in the first place. If you do not have or do not wish to send proper cards, what's the point participating? Sad and totally unexpected.(" I must also add that a handmade piece of paperboard with greenish leaves drawn on it can hardly be considered as a holiday card, therefore it is not up to the swap requirements IMHO. Probably I was expected to change my rating after the "kind" offering of my partner to make it up to me, but as I have said in my message to her, I don't really see the point if she didn't bother to send something even a little bit resembling a New Year card in the first place. Now I am 100% sure that the rating I gave is fair and square. Cheers!
Response: Thank you sweetie for your explanation. I wish you all the best. Take care
