About Marion...

I'm a retired woman with a lot of hobbies.
We have 2 children and 4 grandchildren.
We live about 40 km. in the north of Amsterdam.

In 2013 we have ended our company where we aggrigated flowerbulbs (tulips). Together with my husband we worked for almost 40 years and now I have more time to spend on my hobbies

My most favorite hobby is papercutting and collecting postcards of papercutting. Next to that I collect Christmas treebirds, hyacint glasses and pop-up books. I am also interested in architectur, especially Jugend Stil/Art Nouveau.

I worked for 15 years in the local Fairtrade shop.but it closed down so now I'm working two mornings a week at a thrift shop ( second hand product and gifts). With the proceeds we help bakeries in Uganda and Kenya.

Once a week I sing in a Classic Choir.

My favourite cards are:
papercutting (I hope postcrossers of China will sent them)
pop up cards
jugendstil/art nouveau
art deco
cats
children illustrations
