About Me

Hi, my name is Lindie, @LinSoles on instagram. I currently live in the Netherlands with my boyfriend and our 4 cats. For a introduction from them, check out my instagram stories.

I was born in South Africa and moved to the Netherlands in 1999. Really still miss the South African weather.

My creativity only emerged a few years ago but now I am addicted. Crafting is kind of my therapy now. I enjoy Gelli printing a lot and have been dipping my toes into drawing. Still need lots of practice. Mixed media is so much fun and so versatile. I am a huge Dina Wakley and Maremi fan. I also kind of have a paper addiction. I own a die cut machine and time somehow flies when I am cutting out dies.

I sometimes create cards for swaps but have not taken the step yet to selling them. Maybe one day...

I love sending/receiving mail and have done quite a lot of swaps on instagram the last couple of years.

Hoping to make some new friends here and have a lot of fun in making swaps.

Thanks for stopping by 🤗

Not my thing

  • Coffee
  • Chocolate with salt
  • Planner stuff
  • Sticky notes
  • Childish stuff (hello kitty, etc)
  • Earl Grey tea
  • Sweet fruity tea


I like a lot of tea, green is my favourite but I have a lot of flavours. I am not that fond of sweet fruity teas and some black teas like earl grey. A black tea with interesting flavours I am willing to try though,


If it works out cheaper or better feel free to send swaps in multiple envelopes. If you have me for a bulkier piece feel free to mail it flat instead of tied up(like flipbooks).

As postage is costly for international mail it won't effect my rating at all. The same goes for when you are late sending, just let me know. Life happens sometimes.

Art Pages

If the size is not set then I prefer a 5x7 page. I also join 4x6 swaps and that is fine too. I punch holes in the sides of my pages to add them to a disc journal. So when creating 2 pages, please don't add bulky or important features close to one of the left and on the other page the right side, that way I can add them as a spread. When creating only one page, please do that on the left side. That way I don't loose important details when punching the mushroom holes for the discs. And don't forget to have fun while creating.

JJJ Let's Make a Junk Journal

Blue is always a good idea. I love cat's, butterflies, grungy style items, Book pages in different languages, napkins, ephemera, fabric, lace, paper and lots more. If you read my profile and think you have something that will suit me but it is not listed here ore a different color, if it is chosen with care there is a good chance i will like it. Please, no too childish or too bulky things and no coffee and planner stuff.

Comment: Never received. Contacted & was promised a replacement. Still waiting. If nothing received by November 15, will rate a 1.
Response: I sent you a message for a resend. Can't seem to find your earlier message. Hope we can resolve this
Comment: I’m so sorry to rate this but it’s now 2nd October and never received this swap. Will rerate if I do get it. ***Update: I have received this swap today. The birds are just beautiful. No I will definitely not be plucking their tails 😂 they are stunning. I’m just so very sorry that I can’t rate you a 5🩷 due to the very lateness of getting this swap. Lindie also thank you for all the very pretty extras. Please know Lindie is a lovely swapper.
Comment: I’m so sorry to have to rate this but it’s now 2nd October and never received this swap. Will re-rate if I do get it. ###Update: I have today received the resend of this swap. It is just lovely. I just realised it has a tuck spot, you are so very clever. I’m just sorry that the first one never made it and that as the swap is so very late I can’t rate this a 5❤️. Lindie is a great swapper and hopefully I can send to you next time 🩷🌷🇦🇺
