About Me

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 long time on disability.

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.

My hobbies:

art journaling, creative daily journaling, mixed media, making greeting cards, minizines (only originals!), gel plate printing and crafting in general. I am addicted to YouTube. I also love reading books and walking (preferably in our lovely Wildlands Adventure Zoo).

My favorite YouTubers:

EmiLou.Arts, PocketJournalPam, the COFFEEnated Creative, AJ's Inspired Life, Never Hopeless by Elizabeth, the Minimal Mom, How To Get Your Shit Together, Abundantly Minimal.

My favorite movies:

fantasy, drama, action movies. I really loved to see Avatar, the Matrix, Eragon, Hunger Games, the Shape of Water.

My favorite themes:

I love the vintage romantic style, botanical prints, birds, forest animals (fox, deer, owl etc), zoo animals, 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:

  • Papaya Art
  • Tim Holtz
  • 7 Gypsies
  • Gorjuss girls from Santoro Londen.

My favorite magazines are Flow, Happinez and Daphne's Diary. I am really excited to see your crafty endeavours.

What I would like to receive:

washitape samples, embellishments, die cuts, ephemera, doilies, photo negatives, inchies, twinchies, beautiful napkins for backgrounds (only top layer is fine), stickers (no childish, no foam stickers or puffy ones - only flat stickers), your painted papers, your altered art, quotes, cut-outs from magazines. Flat items only please.

My ABC's:

A: art, animals, apples, alcohol free beer

B: birds, botanical, biking, butterflies, blueberries, budgeting

C: creative daily journaling, capsule wardrobe, cats, chocolate, collage, cotton, cheese, chips

D: dragonflies, dogs, dahlia, dragons, Dyan Reaveley

E: eating out, elephants, eggs

F: fashion, flamingo, flowers, feathers, friends, fall, fox, forest

G: Gorjuss girls, green, giraffe, gerbera, granola bars, garlic, grapes

H: hot air balloons, horses, hummus, hoisin sauce

J: journaling, Jane Davenport, jasmine

K: keys, khaki, kissing

Dislikes:

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).

Comment: Thank you for the recipe and sorry for the late rating. I read your recipe and was sure I have already rated you. So thank you for the reminder. :-) I am not a big fan of sardines so I possibly would replace them with tuna or salami

ESG: Quick Friendly Profile Comment from FritosMom in Bethlehem, Georgia, USA. I don't know what your disability is but I strongly encourage to rescue and older dog-not puppy. They add so much to your life. I currently have 3 dogs and 4 cats. Since I retired I spend hours on YouTube-so educational. YouTube is a window to the world. Merry Christmas.

Hi Cindy,

Greetings from America! I’ve lived here all my life but my grandparents were born in the Netherlands in Groningen. I have yet to visit The Netherlands but it’s certainly on my bucket list.

I see you used to have pet rats. That’s cool, I always thought they looked like interesting creatures. I used to have guinea pigs and gerbils.

Have a nice day and Happy Holidays!

Hi Cindy, heel erg bedankt voor de RAK en gefeliciteerd met de 100 voltooide swaps! Vooral de stickers vind ik erg leuk en kan ik zeker gebruiken! Ook de envelop en de tags komen goed van pas :)

HappyMom on Aug 5, 2018:

Hi Cindy, Thanks for sharing your favorite photos of July with me :) Looks like an amazing place - so peaceful!

Song Lyrics #4:

Tool - Lateralus

Reaching out to embrace the random. Reaching out to embrace whatever may come. //

I'm reaching up and reaching out. I'm reaching for the random or whatever will bewilder me. Whatever will bewilder me.

And following our will and wind We may just go where no one's been. We'll ride the spiral to the end And may just go where no one's been.

Spiral out. Keep going.

Some of the reminders I need most. Hope they can help you, too.

-- camille

Song Lyrics #4 Electronic

Well I know they say all good things must come to some kind of ending We were so damn good I guess we never stood a chance Go on & find what you been missing and when the highway's tired of listening You'll see I'm not that easy to forget

Song: "Thinking Of You" Artist: Christian Kane
