Hi, my name is Cindy and I am a middle aged woman (50-) living in the beautiful Netherlands. Living as a happy single, no kids.
I do voluntary work in an elderly home. I used to be a secretary but for a while on disability. Recently I started a new hobby: Country Line Dancing.
Our Dutch mailing system has changed dramatically. Only paper items (letters, postcards) can be sent as a letter with low postage. Swaps with other content (brads, ribbon, anything) have to be sent as packages so it becomes too expensive.
art journaling, mixed media, making greeting cards, minizines (only originals!), gel plate printing and crafting in general. I have one penpal in Holland. I am addicted to YouTube. I also love reading books and walking (preferably in our lovely Wildlands Adventure Zoo).
Roxy Creations, 49dragonflies, Gayle Agostinelli, Never Hopeless by Elizabeth, Lets make a mess today, CreativelyFree2Bme, HomeBirdJen, Shemi Dixon, Maremi SmallArt, Tammy Brackett, The Rebookery, KissMyCreative, Diane H., LittleRavenInk.
Lately I am very interested in natural imagery. The botanical prints. Wild animals too.
fantasy, drama, action movies. I really loved to see Avatar, the Matrix, Eragon, Hunger Games, Riddick.
I love the vintage romantic style, botanical prints, birds, forest animals (fox, deer, owl etc), butterflies, dragonflies, flowers, feathers, the black and white combo, but also lots of colour, craft color and turqoise blue. I like bird cages, keys, hot air balloons, zentangles, art, airmail, nature, dogs, cats, cute things, Paris, spiritual and chinese/japanese items, Snoopy. Furtherly I love bling bling and metallic. I also have a thing for fashion models and nice artistic photographs.
Brands I really like:
My favorite magazines are Flow, Happinez and Daphne's Diary. I am really excited to see your crafty endeavours.
washitape samples, embellishments, die cuts, ephemera, doilies, photo negatives, inchies, twinchies, beautiful napkins for backgrounds (only top layer is fine), shaped paperclips, stickers (no childish, no foam stickers or puffy ones - only flat stickers), your painted papers, your altered art, anything for my junk journals, letter set to write my penpal, quotes, cut-outs from magazines. Flat items only please.
I am really turned off when things have a cigarette smell.
Christmas themed items.
No emoticon stickers, please. I have no use for them.
Spiders scare me.
Anything religious (except boedda's).
Wooden embellishments or other thick items.
Teabags (unless required in a swap I am joining).
Postcards (unless required in a swap I am joining).
Post-its (I really have so many, but hardly use them).
I can send out mail from Monday till Friday. (So Saturday & Sunday mail goes out on Monday).
We receive mail on Tuesday till Saturday. (Sunday & Monday we get nothing.)
