About Me

Hi, I am Monique. I live in Almere and work as a tram conductor in Amsterdam. I am married and we have an nine year old daughter named Anouk. We have 4 rats and 1 bunny as pets.

Favorite Music

I love rock music, but also pop, golden oldies, Sinatra, salsa, Latin, musical and soundtracks. Love Elvis Presley, Nina Simone, Rolling Stones, Bette Midler, too much to mention.

Favorite Books

I love reading. I will basically read anything I get my hands on. Love thrillers/detectives, Joanne Harris, Tess Gerritsen, Roald Dahl, J. R. R. Tolkien, J. K. Rowling, books about countries, cultures and 2nd world War.

Favorite Movies

Really to many favorites to write down, but I'll try to keep it short. Horrors like It, child's play, vampire movies, fantasy movies, hobbit, lord of the rings, Harry Potter, comedy movies, true stories and movies about the second world War. Love Disney! Especially Alice in Wonderland, Mary Poppins, Coco and the Disney Villains. Adore Marilyn Monroe!

Favorite Television

Poirot, CSI, Bones, Ru Paul's Drag Race, orange is the new black, Bates motel, Hannibal, true blood, vampire diaries, the originals, how to get away with murder, midsomer murders and Rizzoli and Isles

Favorite Crafts

I love drawing, painting and crafting with my daughter. We have bullet journals and a crazy amount of stencils, stickers and washi. We make soaps, shower jellies and bath bombs. Love going to a second hand store and buy stuff to give it a makeover.

Hobbies

Other hobbies are going on field/day/road trips with friends and family, travelling, cooking and baking. I love hosting a diner party for friends. Just like with Christmas I'll plan everything way ahead of time, looking up recipes, love preparing for an aucation. I grow some fruits, herbs and vegetables in our yard, so love gardening.

Likes:

Art: I absolutely adore Frida Kahlo!! But also love Dali, Warhol, Klimt, Haring, DaVinci and Picasso. I love love love the Dali Park in Barcelona!

I love all holidays! And I mean holidays from all different cultures! I would love to receive anything linked to them, like cards, pictures, stickers etc. I especially love Halloween, dia de los muertos and Christmas!

Favorite animals: sloth, llama/alpaca, all big cats (my Zodiac is Leo, so especially lions), orcas, beluga, koalas, red Pandas, snakes, crocs & gators. Elephants! (I had a few statues so when we were still dating my husband thought I collected them and therefor he bought me Elephants. Thanks to him I'd did become a collectionโค๏ธ)

About Me

Do's & don't 's:

(decorated) envelopes! I'm OK with receiving naked postcards but when possible I would love receiving them in an envelope since the Dutch mail company is anything but careful...

I don't like coffee but I absolutely love tea. I'm not a huge fan of herbal tea though and I'm allergic to rooibos tea.

Love all kinds of stationary. My daughter loves kawaii but it's really hard to come by in the Netherlands so that's always very very appreciated.

Stickers: We love Disney so much, but... Please no princesses or Mickey and friends. Not that we don't like them at all, but we have so many of those. Please no reward stickers. If I would get them I would forward them to school because I wouldn't know what to use them for. Love: Food stickers Animal stickers Halloween stickers Kawaii stickers (would make Anouk so happy)

Washi: Unless the swap calls for it specifically I'm not a big fan of the narrow washi tapes. I love holiday washi and it's not easy to find in my country. Especially Halloween and Easter ones. Love food, unicorn, mermaid, animals, cactus or succulents, washi's that refer to culture or landmarks.

I always send my swaps so if you think it's been too long and you haven't received anything please contact me so we can figure out what happened and make it right. The same goes for ratings. If I haven't rated the swap you send me then I haven't received it yet.

Last but not least: I'll be opening my swap mail with my eight year old daughter Anouk because she loves receiving mail and crafty packages. So please keep that in mind when you send me something. Young eyes are watching ๐Ÿ˜‰

Comment: I love love love your art style! It's so pretty and your coloring is gorgeous. I gotta know how you got the slightly different color circle around Jasmine, cause it doesn't look like it was colored that way but looks so awesome. Thank you so much! PS, the live action Aladdin is actually pretty good, similar enough to the original to be enjoyable but also different enough to be it's own thing. Also, thank you for the NBC postcard! Is extra special cause my husband proposed with the song from that scene <3
