About Me

My name is Lilian. Me and my teenage girls live in the Netherlands. I'm a coach and trainer in personal development. A few years ago I wrote my first novell and when I'm not busy working, I love to make all sorts of papercraft. Love crafting, and like to share things I made and found with other people. I moved in 2022 after a divorce and now I am back to crafting after a long period of moving, painting and decorating the house. Happy to be back with you all.

Favorite Crafts

Flipbooks, scrapbooking, ATC, project life, mixed media, pocket letters, junk journal, paper and fabric flowers, cardmaking, papercrafts. Love to use stamps, stencils, acrylics and ink. My bigshot is my favorite tool, love to make diecuts.

Favorite Music

Together with the girls I dance in the livingroom every once in a while. We all like dance music. When nobody is at home, I listen to lounge and yoga music to relax.

Favorite Movies

Television is not something I like to watch. But I watch creative tutorials or movies on youtube. I love channels on youtube of Septeria18 and girl on the ridge and Gi. I like the superhero movies.... I've seen them all... on the other hand I like fantasy movies like Avatar, Narnia, the fifth element and starwars. So a very wide range of interest in movies, so to say.

Favorite Books

In my big pile of books, there is a lot of studybooks for my job. Next to the studybooks there is a lot of books that tell the real story about the life of the author, love the biografie of Einstein. Most of the books I read are like over 300 pages, because I like to read long stories that have a lot going on. I have all the books of Harry Potter, Tolkien and other fantasybooks, love them. And I almost forgot about all my cooking and recipes books. It will take a lifetime to cook them all.

Swap tips

Love most of papercraft stuff, also little pieces of fabric to use in projects and for making flowers. I started to swap, because of the creative part, so if you would like to surprise me, send something crafty.

  • ephemera
  • paper die cuts
  • Vintage
  • old letters and vintage writing
  • vintage invoices
  • flowers, especially roses
  • glassine bags and brown coin envelopes
  • hearts
  • eco dyed paper
  • colour gold, red, orange, pink
  • handmade items with your art
  • butterflies and birds
  • coffee and cookies themed
  • leftover pieces of scrapbookpaper or vellum
  • Tim Holtz
  • graphic 45
  • lace and fibres
  • old pictures of people
  • Fairy, vintage unicorn, vintage angels
  • old bookpages or magazine pages (+40 years)
  • different language newspaper and book pages
  • paper flowers (flat ones)
  • stamped images of beautiful stamps

My dislikes: steampunk / sports themed / I really don't like skulls, Halloween, drakula's and all that sort of scary things / disney / south parc / pokemon. Please no coffee or teabags for me. I don’t use any postcards other then handmade ones, so keep your preprinted postcards for someone else.

I will allways rate your mail, if it takes to long, send me a message to ask for it. And of course I allways send something out, so if you don't get anything, let me know. If this might happen, we will figure out what to do. I like to think in solutions.

Response: Oh danke! Es ist so gut om die frohe berichten zu sehen. Wir werden mal schreiben!
Comment: Hoi Lilian, dankjewel voor je heerlijke envelop vol ephemera! Mijn absolute favoriet is het stukje stof 🤩🤩🤩 maar ik ben ook dolblij met je briefje, mooie envelop en alle andere items die bij mijn likes passen (sneeuwklokje! ijsvogel! etc.). heel erg, ik had ooit dat Edith Holden boek, maar dat was voordat ik boeken sloopte om mee te freubelen en dus gaf ik het weg... Zo sla ik mezelf tegenwoordig helaas wel meer voor het hoofd haha.
Response: Oh wat fijn te horen! Nouja niet van dat edith holden boek, dat is zo mooi! Ik heb meer botanical books van diverse mooie mensen, je ziet de liefde voor de natuur eraf spatten, ik houd ervan. En ik knip oude kleding en gordijnenboeken aan flarden, heerlijk! Geniet van het spelen met de spulletjes.
Comment: Thank you so much for this lovely mail! The stamp samples and paper goodies are awesome! And in addition your bright colorful mail and the great postage stamps made my day!

Comment: So many fun things included in your envelope! Thank you!
Response: Let us do more of those swaps, I loved it. Got so many ideas for other themes.
