About Me

Hoi ik ben Laura, 54 jaar, getrouwd en moeder van 2 zoons en poes Gizmo. Ik ben full time moeder en interieurverzorgster en in mijn vrije tijd altijd aan de knutsel. Ik maak o.a. kaarten maar ben ook graag bezig met allerlei stofjes, vilt, kraaltjes, borduren, haken,breien, dotee dolls en amigurumi's maken en af en toe nog wat scrappen. (maar dat staat eigenlijk nu op een laag pitje). Er is weinig op hobbygebied wat ik niet leuk vind. Ook vind ik het heel leuk om allerlei hoekjes in huis te creëren en het gezellig te maken met plantjes en bloemetjes.

Hi, my name is Laura, 54 years old, married and full time mother of two sons and our cat Gizmo. In my spare time I like to create things of all kinds of material. At the moment I really like to make dotee dolls, crocheting, knitting, embroidery and felt things.

Things I like

This I like

Amigurumi Dotee Dolls
Vintage Style Thrift store, birds, threes, nature, the forest, flowers cute birdhouses gardening roses the seasons reading Valentine Hearts Halloween To give presents Vintage, vintage looking, mixed media, colllage, nature, butterflies, birds, owls.

Things I don't like

I don't really like this

Anything related to whatever kind of religion skulls, day of the dead, gothic

Only skulls if the item is Halloween

Favorite Colours

Pink, white, purple the most. And bright colours that make me happy. I do not like very dark colours. I also like vintage, vintage looking, mixed- media, collage.

Favorite Books

I like to read thrillers of foreign writers but also from several Dutch writers. Dan Brown is one of my favorites, but I also like the books of Stieg Larsson. Nicci French Saskia van Noort Rita Spijker Simone van de Vlugt The Bridget Jones books Sex and the city Earth's children of Jean M. Auel, a historical roman.

Favorite Music

Music of the 70's, 80's and 90's I like very much. Especially the soul numbers like George mccrea, Marvin Gay, Gloria Gaynor, three degrees e.a.

I like to collect

different kind of pincushions, thimbles and other sewing things, spools of wood for spoolknitting.I also like all kind of fabrics to make dotee dolls. And I also collect all kind of bookmarks from paper, beads,fabric etc.

Postcards and postcrossing

I do like sending and receive postcards from everywhere around the world. I especially like the tourist postcards from several countries, mountains, desserts, seas, oceans, flowers and animals. I collect them as well and when you sent me such a PC I prefer the name of your country/state or village you live on it. For example when you are from Atlanta, I like it when this name is on the PC and I also want them naked, so you see an address and name on it , so no envelop. At the moment I am collecting PC's from butterflies, cows and owls and Alice in Wonderland.


I like to do swaps with tea. I collect the teabags, so it doesn't matter which kind of tea you sent me. When it is not my taste, I will give it to somebody else.:) But green tea's are not my favorite.

You were my send to partner for the Sharpies and Tape and I got your name again for the Decorate a Journal! I went with a nature theme for the Sharpies and Tape envelope. I'm thinking about a different theme for your journal. Any requests?
