Well, just got back from the post office. Ihaka is officially on his way back to the Netherlands. Cry I had so much fun with him!

I'll miss Giles too!  Undecided I'll miss showing him around and I'll also miss the weird look of people and remarks (yes Dutch people always like to interfere with what you're doing  Roll Eyes) when they see me taking pictures of a small giraffe in front of a monument or museum  Wink

Ohh all the packages look good!
I'm also doing last minute work to send Giles back to FL and I'm picking up some last pictures today. I'm also quite sad to see him go, especially as I've got some birthday parties coming and I'd love to take him to my new veggie garden  Roll Eyes...
PFD,we just should make it an all year swap  Wink

Looks great! I should make one too as we're all Dr.Who nerds here.

I received the best scarf ever in the mail today from mama24boyz! It's green (my favorite colour), soft, warm and looks fabulous;

I can wrap it around my neck twice for the cold when I go outside and wrap it only once for the "necklace" look.

Thank you so much mama24boyz!  Cheesy

Happy b-day to you all!

I'm Christina and I'll be 35 (yikes!) on February 16.
I live in the Netherlands with  my husband and 3,5 y/o son who we'll be homeschooling. We are both highschool teachers, I teach French. I love learning foreign languages (currently learning Japanese), travelling, discovering nature, gardening (indoor and outdoor; I heard today that I'll have a veggie garden near my house, yay!), crafting and sending & receiving snail mail. In fact I have far more interests than time...
As a nature lover, green is my favorite colour. Please feel free to recycle/re-use.

We don't have any allergies but we are vegetarian.

Themes & colours I love
: nature, Japan, foreign languages, recycled/reusable/frugal items, hippie stuff, animals, herbs, dark green, natural colours and materials, black, summer colours, retro colours/themes, yoga, '60s and '70's movies (especially horror), Dr. Who, and there are many more things I like in my profile and Pinterest

Dislikes: pastels, glitter, pink, artificial fragrances.

Big wishes in green

Crafted items

A surprise from my pinterest


- A lacy shawl (in green/natural colours)

- Knitted socks

- A scoodie

- Knitted or crocheted cuffs (examples in my pinterest/clothing board).

spring hoodie
Something like this could perhaps also be sewn or crocheted? As long as it's green ;-)


- A messenger bag There are some examples in my Pinterest/Craft ideas

Basic comfy pants for my son (size 4T) Any colour, would love a mix of colours.
Would love some with simple sewn on pockets.

An I spy bag (gender neutral please)

- A crayon colouring book to go

- Something similar to the crayon colouring book, but then for me; something that will hold my sketchbook & some pencils. In green or happy/spring colours please. Maybe ribbon or something similar in stead of a velcro closure.

Slippers (size EUR 39/USA 8,5/UK 6) there are some examples in my Pinterest.

A scoodie in green, natural colours or mix of colours in adult size

- A dragon hoodie for my son (size 4T) like for example this one: http://www.wists.com/IdlersDesign/e2892b6da4b88444bbdf7051c0e55bb5?offset=40 Can probably be made from an existing hoodie (thrift store is ok).
Cloth training pants for my son.

- A wallet. I received one in this swap a few years ago and loved and used it so much that it's almost falling apart.

Other techniques:

- Durable plant markers for my new veggie/herb garden.

Craft supplies (used is ok!):
