I'm a Dutch girl who likes to swop with all kinds of people from all over the world.
I love to photograph the world around me, travel, walk long walks, read books (but I often don't find the time) and like to watch a good movie. I'm interested in Philosophy and the world we life in and like to exchange ideas with other people about it. I'm interested in what motivates other people and how they deal with everyday day life. I also love to search on pinterest for inspiration that is going to help me being more creative.
For me that's also the reason why I want to join swap-bot. I have gathered lot's of ideas and materials but I find it difficult to get started. Someone I met recently told me about swap-bot and it made me very excited. The idea of exchanging stuff, challenge each other to make things and meet new people who love the same things as you do makes it very exciting It is also a great idea to find some other things in the mail then bills and stuff related to taxes!!!
My biggest challenge for the future is to make an art journal, but before ever finishing one I have to start with small steps. Here for I love to gather: - Magazines for inspiration (and also make collages from them) - Materials (paper, tapes, paint, brushes, pencils, wool, textile, pictures end so on) - Ideas on Pinterest - Books - Notebooks in all sizes and shapes - Japanese texts - Musical papers
I'm inspirated by nature, faces, beautifull bodies, quotes, poems, books, movies and every day life.
I love to drink lots of tea especially if it is escortes by a nice peace of chocolate.
You can wake me up for that at any time.
There is one other thing and that is my love for Australia. I love their nature, space but also their more relaxed way of living. Anything that has to with Australia is always more than welcome.
For me this is a journey and hope it is going to be a nice one.
Most of the music I like is about the struggle of life, broken hearts and music where you can sing with whole your heart. For me music is a way te regulate my feelings. - Stef Bos (Dutch singer / song writer) - Blöf (Dutch band) - Ruth Jacott (Dutch singer) - James Taylor - Bee Gees - Shirley Bassey - Barbra Streisand - David Bowie - George Michael
At this moment there is only one thing for me and that is Viking. I absolutely love the though guys that have to fight for life and country. My all time favorite is Ragnar, but I also enjoy the little bit strange Floki.
Some older things that I loved to watch were: - Luther - Hannibal - Star Trek - Stargate - X-files (old series) - 24 - Grey's Anatomy - The Shield
My all time favorite tear jurking movie is Bridge over Madison County. A movie with Clint Eastwood and Meril Streep. A housewife that lifes a boring life (somewhat in the 60's or 70's) meets, while her family is away, by change a photographer from the National Geographic. It is only for 4 days, but they turn her life upsite down. Every time she sits in the car by her husband with the handle of the door in her hand, he in the car before her, touching her necklace that hangs on the mirror, waiting for her even when the lights are already green, I can't help but feeling the tears roll down my cheek. To me a film about true love.
Passenger, Lord of the RingsTrilogy, The Hobbit Trilogy, Harry Potter, Kong, The Matrix, Singing in the Rain, On the town, An American in Paris, movies with Jason Stathem, Aliens, All kind of Thrillers .....
I love everything that has to do with art journaling. Collages, beautiful handwriting in combination with self made art, pictures that tell about stuff that makes people happy, colourfull pages, mixed media, combinations where people used embroading with textiles and paper. I can't do it myself, but I love beautifull paintings, drawings, experiments with different materials.
I really like the following colours:
- Combination of black, pink and white.
- Combination of black, red and white.
- Deep sky blue
- Pink - Black and White
I love pictures and collages. Especially in combination with quotes and texts.
Alle materials, textiles and art forms are welcome, but don't make it to colourfull or all about glitter.
Anything that is special for your country, cards, stamps, food, your language on a book page, toeristic attribut, thimble, anything that tell me more about your country, customs and you.
