Get to know.... Jolanda Meurs

Hello everyone it is Jolanda Meurs here from the Netherlands (Europe)
Please forgive my English. I do my best and will tell you something about me.

Do you know why I love Bo Bunny so much?
Each paper line is so complete and full of embellishments like stickers, chipboard, noteworthy, stamps, jewels, brads, petals etc.
and of course the Coordinating cardstock
I’m so honored to be a part of the Bo Bunny Design Team.
Thank you Bo Bunny.

I’m married and have two sons. My eldest is almost 17 and my youngest son is 9 years old
We own a Gas station and a Taxi company in the middle of the Netherlands.

My guys (they find themselves so cool)

Let me tell a bit about me.

       I have the sweetest parents you can think off and I do not have brothers or sisters.
I have two dogs and only one big white fat chicken called Tokkie.
                           I work in a Scrapbook store and design for two Dutch magazines.
     I give Classes and always talks a lot. Hi, hi… I drink lots of black coffee in the morning to wake-up.
I love.... desserts. Yes! Yum!!!!!
I do not have a specific style. It depends on how my mood is. But most of the time I like to add a lot…
I have so many ideas in my head but can not find the time to work it all out.
I do not like to use lots of colours on my layouts and my favourite colours are aqua, blue, brown and cream. I hate Yellow in combination with Red and Orange.
I create all kinds of things but the most I like is to make small presents for others and fill them with soap I made myself.
Yeah I do that too.
I have been creative all my life and have lots of different hobbies besides paper crafting.
So sorry but no picture of my scrap room ….. When I’m at work it looks like an explosion.

Mathew, his Mum and me
Last year some of the Bo Bunny Family came over to our Fairytail Event in the Netherlands and Mathew teaches some classes. I had the opportunity to help him out.
Now I have to do the Classes for the Fairytale in October on my own.
I'm going to use Sweet Tooth. The new line of Bo Bunny.
Those who know me... We are going to have lots of fun!

He is always outside helping around the house or at our Gasstation. There is always a lot to do here.
He likes to ride on his Quad or on his tractor which he restored  himself.
He is a very kind, sensitive and helping person.

He likes to play on his Wii computer and Nintendo.
Prefers to be inside of the house. Thinks that he knows everything!
I have my hands full of him.

I take care of 8 horses here at our house. Two of them are mine.
This is my dressage horse Wish.
I called him Wish because my dream was to have a black horse.
I trained him myself and our level is going up each time.

    This my other horse Partoes. I have trained her myself also.
We had a very high degree for dressage but she got very sick.
She gave birth to 3 foals.
I’m very proud of her. She is very special to me!

I made some new projects for today!
Let me know if you like it?
