About Yvonne van de Grijp

Yvonne van de GrijpI am Yvonne from The Netherlands. With my husband, Harrie, and English Cocker Spaniel, Noozy, we live in the south part of our beautiful little country, close to the forest.

The simple promise to send a friend a handmade Christmas card is what led to my "papercraft addiction." I have been on the many manufacturing design teams from around the globe. Mainly a card maker, I also like mixed media and scrapbooking. My other hobbies include writing my blog, teaching workshops, doing charity work, cooking, speaking languages (I speak Dutch, English, German, Spanish and a little French), travelling, gardening, walking in the woods, reading books and watching movies with happy endings.

I have studied law (university) and business economics and travelled around quite a lot for work. I quit working to now take care of my family.

My blog is named after my first dog Phoebe. My blog motto is “Being Creative is a Way of Life Too!” I love sharing techniques, my knowledge and ideas with people to motivate them to "explore" their creativity too. Find me at PhoeBeez.
