Happy birthday everyone! I'm Caroline and I'll be turning 23 on the 21st. I'm currently a primary school, kindergarten and nursery teacher in China, but my contract ends this month. After that, I'll be spending a month traveling round China.
I've got a degree in engineering geology from a UK university, and despite having to move back in with my parents in Holland when I go home, I can't wait to move back to England as soon as I possibly can. I'm still looking around for jobs, so who knows what the future holds!
So I'm a very easy person to craft for. There's not a lot I can think of that I wouldn't love to receive. I admire every skill, so feel free to use whatever crafts you know. There are no colours I dislike, but combos I particularly enjoy are green/blue/purple, yellow/grey, brown/turquoise, brown/pink. I love purple, electric blue and pink.
My main hobbies are reading, crafting, traveling and I love going to concerts or the theatre. I've always got music on, and I never leave the house without a sketch/note book and a good book. I haven't really got a definided style, I just wear/buy whatever I like, although I do tend to go for some more cutesy stuff. However, rock, vintage and Asian looking stuff is kinda my thing, too. If you're not sure about whether something may or may not be 'me', then feel free to drop me a message
