lottemeis(or Lotte) is a member in Netherlands . She has been a member for over 3 years (1,357 days).
My name is Lotte and I am 36 years old. I have two daughters: Hanne (9) and Stine (4). We have a dog (Banja, 12) and chickens.
When I was young, I wanted to become a childrens book illustrator. Instead of that, I work in a book shop as a childrens book specialist and try to read a lot of books. I volunteer for an organisation which spreads childrens books for children in poverty.
My daughters keep me busy. Besides that I like to work in the garden, to grow vegetables, to bake cakes, to have breakfast, to read, to visit flee markets and to create things. I collect illustrated childrens books (espacially with wolves), Little Red Riding Hood related things and clothespins.
I am interested in people and their movements and in 'saving the world'.
I like fully written personal postcards. I love to read about YOU. What makes you happy? What is important in your life? Do you like to share a memory with me? Or tell me your dreams, what you're fighting for, what you think about life, ...
This is what I enjoy most of a postcard. Some writings make me cry, some make me laugh loud - let's celebrate emotions ;)
* big joy *
Being a mother is my biggest joy (and the hardest thing I have ever done). Receiving a postcard with mother and baby or child makes me dance around the room. Any style would be great!
Can you tell me about your mother? Or something about being a parent?
