Hello fellow postcrosser!
my name is Mirjam, I live in Dublin the capital city of Ireland with my two daughters (9 and 11) and husband.
I have been living here for over 26 years 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 keep one day a week for my own creative endeavors, currently this is drawing, painting (watercolours), mail art and some other arts and crafts. (batik, calligraphy, beadwork...)
Things that make me smile:
A cup of tea in bed in the morning
Swimming in the sea or a lake
Making/Creating /Drawing/ Pottering/Playing
Warm dry weather (It really does rain too much in Ireland)
Friends and family
Magazines (Uppercase, Flow)
Stationery (notebooks, sticky labels, stickers, tape, rubber stamps, pens, paper)
Your card on my doormat
*Year of the Rooster stamps or maxi cards would be really appreciated!!
All cards are welcome!
I love the surprise of any card but if you need some direction in picking I do have some favourites:
Year of the... Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig, Rat, Ox, Tiger any of the Chinese Zodiac Animals
