Well, my name is Cindy and I l live in Holland, together with my boyfriend, the amazing bull terrier Jayden, and our two awesome Kakariki's, my best friends!
I work in a group home for young adults with (learning) disabilities like down syndrome, autism etc. I love this job so so much and it's making me insanely happy, I've never felt more appreciated in my life ^_^
Besides that I also teach group fitness classes at my local gym. I'm one of the lucky ones who gets paid doing something I absolutely couldn't live without! And I can't sit still...
Since I discovered the craft of making cards in the begin of 2012 I was hooked. I loved coloring Magnolia, Wee Stamps and Sherri Baldys My Besties with my Distress or Spectrum Noir Markers. My paper distresser en Distress Inkt pads were my best crafting friends and I mostly liked to make vintage / distressed themed cards. I was part of several design teams, but because of that crafting became a chore with all those obligations and I ended up quitting. Not that I woke up one day and deliberately decided to quit, but it just kind of happened.
My boyfriend, dog and I moved from the big city to a small town in 2015, which is next to one of Hollands most beautiful natural parks and I realized I slowly felt the urge to craft again. So I finally got all those moving boxes out of the basement and decided to at least give everything a spot somewhere around my desk and well, you know here I am again ;-).
Besides paper crafting, I also love to play the piano and spending time with my camera and editing photos with Photoshop or designing stuff like blog templates. I also like to go out for a run every now and then and I love to workout. Fitness and trying to obtain a healthy lifestyle is a big part of my life at the moment.
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 birdies 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.
Happy crafting :D!!
