Cindy our Guest from the Netherlands

Good Morning and welcome to the Besties UK blog ... today we have Cindy visiting us from the Dutch Besties Team .. please give her a very warm welcome .....

My name is Cindy van der Velde, 40 years old and I live in Hellevoetsluis, The Netherlands . It is a small town approx. 30 km of Rotterdam.  I live together with my boyfriend. I don't have any children. 

I work fulltime at a lawyers / sollicitors office. I am appointed by the District Court as a trustee of people with large debts. It is my job to help them to get a steady life.  I meet people with a lot of problems, so card making for me is the utmost way to relax.

I've made cards since I was a little girl. I was always sitting near my Mom with some items to make. I make cards in lot of different ways (scrap, embroidery). Furthermore I make my own clothes now and then. I like knitting, cross stitch, embroidery, too much to tell. It is very excited that my mum is also a DT-member of my Besties Dutch Girls Designs. It is so much fun to make the cards and creations together.

 I like to color with copics. Sometimes I use Distress ink or pencils. I am always in for new challenges and new things to do. 

 I am very proud that I was asked to be a DT-member. I am a Bestie girl since the start of the Dutch My Bestie Blog and I still love it! 

Please feel free to visit my blog:

Thank you for letting me tell something about myself. If you have any questions, don't hestitate to ask.  I hope you all will join the challenges on the Bestieblogs worldwide!
