Jolanda - Our Guest from the Netherlands ....

Good Morning  and welcome back to the Besties UK blog ..... we are pleased to give a very warm welcome to our visitor from the Netherlands Jolanda ......

Hello Besties fans,

My name is Jolanda and I’m 39 years old. I live in the South of the Netherlands in a small town called Horn. I’m married to Andy and we have a dog called Baloe. He turned 12 this year and he is such a lovely dog! He’s still very active and I love to go for a walk with him…

I’m proud to be a Dutch Besties Girl and I joined this fabulous team from the beginning, almost a year ago now!
Years ago I started making cards, but since 2011 I discovered the World of stamps. I started colouring with pencils and 2 years ago with alcohol markers. Sometimes I colour with distress ink, so I like to experiment with different mediums & techniques.
A year ago I started mixed media projects and Art Journaling. Also love decorating our home…so I’m never bored;0)
I made new friends in the crafting world through blogging and I’m so thankful for that, they coloured my life and give me inspiration…

Some of my cards...

 my first card for the Dutch Besties team:0)

and my latest...   mixed media

A big hug from the Netherlands
xx Jolanda
