About me

I have two adorable cats no one can tell apart but me. I have and allotment garden, which has flowers and vegetables and fruits on it, love spending time there, also have a few frogs, toads and newts living in my mini ponds.
I like to cook and had my own recipe blog(s), which are in Dutch, but I also blog on a gardening site and translate the recipes for them.
I craft whenever I can, I mostly make cards and only post the ones that go into blog challenges. Love taking part in these challenges as the cards might result in something I wouldn't normally make, but it makes you more creative I think, especially with my  collection of loved stamps and dies and stencils.

    1. Hi Lissa thank you! I don't have a newsletter as of yet, only 12 followers, might be a tad of an overkill lol, you're welcome to follow my site and you'll get the news updates on google+

  2. Hi! I really love what you hace created, I wish I had talent like you, I am from Mexico, and recently started doing some paper craft as a way to entertain me and maybe do some money, I quit my job several years ago to take care of my two children, but I always try to find something to do, I am attracted to drawing but I don't have skills, so I enjoy watching others works. I will become your 13 th follower...! It's a lucky number!

  4. Hello Maaike,

    I love your designs. I have twin cats (cat mom). Would you be willing to sell some of your designs (high resolution scans) to me? I love sending cards to family and friends as I think people love receiving cards rather than emails for birthdays, Christmas, Easter, etc. I own my own company so just don’t have the time to create designs but I am just in love with your designs. Usually my Christmas cards are photos of my cats but the one you made with the kitty wrapped in Christmas lights is the most adorable thing I have seen. I hope to hear from you. Kind regards, Darryn - pixie_koster@hotmail.com
