Hi, my name is Cindy and I live in Holland, together with my boyfriend, the amazing bull terrier Jayden, and our awesome Kakariki ‘Tony McTerror’ 😆. They are my best friends!

We live in the most beautiful area of Holland, near a natural park called the ‘Veluwe’.

We’ve decided to move from the  big city to a smaller more rural village and it was the best decision we’ve ever made.

I work in a group home for young adults with all kinds of (learning) disabilities like down syndrome, autism, (acquired) brain impairment, etc. I love this job so much and it’s making me insanely happy ^_^. I also teach group fitness classes at a local gym. I’m one of the lucky ones who gets paid doing something I absolutely couldn’t live without. The fact that I can’t sit still might be the cause of this crazy habit where I try to put 8 days in a 7 days week 😅

I discovered the craft of making cards in the beginning of 2012.

I became addicted to everything pastel, shabby and distressed.

After that I started venturing outside my comfort zone in cardmaking land and discovered the world of Mixed Media and Art Journaling.

I love to get my hands dirty and cover myself in glitter, paint and ink. I’m extremely happy when creating a  big glittery mess in my craft-cave and getting complains by my better half that I should get some fresh air for I haven’t left the room in ages 😉.

Besides crafting, I also love to play the piano and like photography. I also like to go out for a run every now and then and I workout quit a lot. Fitness, teaching my classes and trying to obtain a healthy lifestyle is a big part of my life.

I also spend a lot of time with my bully friend Jayden, who is born in May 2012. She’s the craziest, wildest, most untamed, sweetest, most wonderful and cutest dog I’ve ever met….and she, the birdie and my boyfriend are the love(s) of my life 💗!

Well that’s about it I guess…..feel free to ask me anything using the ‘contact me’ tab or leave me a friend request on Facebook. And thank you so much for taking time to read this ‘little’ about me post. If you like you can follow me on social media, just click on the links in the sidebar 😊

Happy Crafting 😊
