Didn't get anything from me?

****YES..I HAVE A 1 RATING. THIS WAS DUE TO THE FACT IN A SWAP MY CARD DID NOT ARRIVE TO MY PARTNER. INSTEAD OF LETTING ME FIX IT SHE RATED ME DOWN. I'VE BEEN DROPPED FROM 2 SWAPS BECAUSE OF IT. I HAVE CLOSE TO 500 RATINGS THAT ARE FIVES. IF I'M IN A SWAP OF YOURS THAT STATES "NO RECENT ONES" PLEASE RE-CONSIDER. I'M NOT A FLAKER!!!!***

*** Please note! Our mail route now has become one where there is a sub EVERY day. One of them doesn't pick up outgoing mail at all and I find out at the end of the day when I pick up my mail that it is still in the box. This means if I say I sent it today the post mark very well might be the next day. I cannot drive out to the post office every day and I find it irritating that they don't pay attention. I've flagged the mailbox and it only works for a few days until we get a new person.

So, in short, I'm not deliberately sending mail out later ******

This means I'm not the type to flake when I need to send something. So if you did not get a swap from me PLEASE let me know. Please RATE me, I rate as soon as I get your things, please be so kind to do so too.

Favorite Crafts

Knitting, weaving and spinning my own wool. Coloring books is another thing I love, I have too many and not enough time to sit down and color.

Favorite Music

Right now anything Latin I love. I'm dancing in a dance class called Dance Party, a mix of Zumba, Latin Dance, hip-hop and Bollywood.

Favorite Television

Do it yourself shows, cooking shows. Documentaries that teach me something. Cuurentl enjoy watching The Reign, Call the Midwife and The Crown.

Favorite Books

I enjoy mysteries, true crime stories, biographies, travel stories and I read cook books as a hobby.

Things I really love

I love colors but don't like red or really pink things. I'm a big fan of Art Deco, Gargoyles, Buddha pictures, elephants, colors and patterns of all sorts. I love tulips and pretty flowers. I'm getting into washi tape. My favorite painters are almost all the Dutch Masters, I like Monet and Georgia O'Keefe as well.

Don't like.

I would REALLY prefer no cursive handwriting, I wasn't raised learning how to read it and I have hard time reading it. If it is however how you write then please write a litte bigger with spacing!

I don't like strong scents either in perfume or candles. Real lavender is always good. Due to dietary restrictions no food please. Not a fan of cartoon items, please no stickers,no Hello Kitty things. I don't care for beach/overly flowery or very pink stationary.

Cities and places I love.

Favorite cities, Amsterdam-Lyon-Paris-Avignon-Mont Saint Michel-San Francisco- Seattle-Chicago.

About Me

Jack of all trades, very creative and active every day. I don't work but I volunteer at an educational farm and as a reading tutor. I love dancing, just got certified as a Zumba instructor.

Comment: thanks for your letter, which I enjoyed. I wasn't sure what to do with it at first, since you did not include the name of the swap or your own name! (Fortunately, I found your name on the return address label on the envelope)

Comment: I received the cards today. While the cards from your last partners are not full, you don't need to open a new card :)
Response: There were 3 cards total in this swap. As was one full card so I sent that back, I thought I was meant to replace that card?

Comment: Hi Marjoleine! Thank you for the fun share about your weekend! What a good friend you are to help with not one dance class but two! The yarn swap sounds interesting, I keep thinking I want to learn how to crochet - really just hearts for swaps but so far have not taken on another hobby, as I am not sure how the hubby would react! LOL! Wishing you all the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
