Hello my name is Mandy, I'm 35 years old and I live together with my husband Edwin, my 2 year old son Tim and our 2 cats Sammie & Droppie in Uitgeest. It's a little town near Alkmaar and it's also near Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
I work part-time (24hrs) at an web-shop which sells all kind of articles to bake and decorate cakes & cookies. (www.deleukstetaartenshop.nl)
My interests are:
* listening to (live) music at festivals, concerts or just at the local bars (Rock music)
* I collect hippo's, I now have about 250 different little statues of hippo's, but I don't have so much cards/photo's from them so they are certainly welcome!
* I like to play with my son, also we bake and cook allot
* I love to bake and decorate cakes and cookies, my avatar was my first "decorated with icing" cake (in this case the icing was fondant/marsepein), I learned this at a workshop which was given by the lady who now is my employer :-) If you like to bake etc for yourself and you understand a little dutch, maybe you can also check out this site, I find a lot of inspiration on this one: www.deleukstetaarten.nl
* I like reading, all kind of books but Harry Potter, books of the authors Diana Gabaldon, Stephen King, John Grisham, Preston & Child, Dan Brown, Stephenie Meyer, Stieg Larsson, Astrid Lindgren are my favorites
I like all kind of cards...send me one you would like to receive yourself!
But if you find it difficult to choose, here and in my favourites are some suggestions:
* Hippo's (as in Hippopotamus, Nijlpaard, Flusspferd etc. etc)
* (Disney) Films/Cartoons like: Alladin, Cinderella, Beauty and the beast, Twilight, Harry Potter, Pippi etc.
* Cards with lots of colors (especially purple / light-blue / pink / turquoise)
* Krtek (the little mole from the cartoons, Het molletje)
* Black / White cards with one touch of colour
* Cards with natural phenomena like, rainbows, sun risings, sun settings, rain, volcanic eruptions etc.
