Hello, I'm kleinevos from the Netherlands. I'm ..... years old (born in 1970, I'll leave out my age so I don't have to change it here every year ;-)) ) and I'm crafting almost all my life. I did a lot of felting, sewing little dolls and animals, origami and I started knotting in januari 2013. I did some macrame before, but I never made friendship-bracelets before that. I enjoy making them now!
I also like to crochet now and then, and I started my journey in 'the other macrame', with gemstones and/or beads, in the beginning of 2016.
I like the versatility of making knots! It has become the biggest part of my life now, and there's so much more to explore! I'm sure I will keep enjoying it for many years to come.

I'm also on Facebook : KleinevosCrafts
and on Instagram: kleinevos70. And, because of my large and still growing pile of bracelets, I opened up an etsy store: KleinevosCrafts.

Someone asked me to put links to the tutorials I made here, to be able to find them more easily, so here it is, along with links to some basic tutorials:
