About Mirjam...

Hello fellow postcrosser!

my name is Mirjam, I live in Dublin the capital city of Ireland with my husband and our two daughters (age 14 and 12)
I have been living here for 30 years (arrived in 1988!) and love this country but grew up in the Netherlands.
I trained as an artist and now spend most of my time working with children and adults teaching art.
I try to set aside some time each week for my own creativity, currently this is drawing,collage, painting (watercolours), mail art and some other arts and crafts. (batik, calligraphy, beadwork...)

All cards are welcome!
I love the surprise of any card but if you need some direction in picking here is my list:

Traditional dress/ tracht/ klederdracht
Embroidery, lacework, batik
Beautiful landscapes
Crafts from your country
Art from your country/region
People writing or reading
Fairytales, children's stories, folklore
Year of the...Rat ( Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig, Rat, Ox, Tiger, sheep, dragon any of the Lunar Zodiac Animals)
Flowers, botanical drawings

Voor Nederlanders:
Kaarten met typische Nederlandse dingen stel ik erg op prijs.

And one the card I would love some beautiful stamps if possible.
