Hi, I’m Andrea (Bea) Vonk. I come from a family of artists, craft enthusiasts and teachers, and have always had - from an early age - either a paintbrush or pencil in my hand, a pair of scissors and paper, or whatever else that came to hand to craft with. I have been brought up in a spirit of thriftiness and I think it is more fun, more rewarding and more fulfilling to make something out of nothing. Modern Country Lady is my blog on which I like to share my projects and tutorials.
I believe that all materials, however plain or unassuming, can be used to create new and exciting projects.
On the professional side, I was trained as an artist,and have worked on many commissions over the years, but in the last 6 years I worked in an totally non-craft related industry as a multi-lingual project manager. I felt a real yearning to be back in the world of creativity, so I set up my blog with craft projects and tutorials in 2010, and a blog-related Facebook page in order to reach out, connect and share with other creative people all over the world. Creating the blog had helped me take a step further on my creative journey, and I have now set up my own company, called My Aunt Agatha, for which I work as designer and enterpeneur.
I am also the fiancee of a lovely guy, and mom to 4 "furkids" (who all feature on the blog from time to time ). I find lots of inspiration for crafting from discarded material.

I think you are Awsome,Bea! I became Thrifty & Frugal out of necessity,but I also can not see wasting anything either. I'm sometimes considered a Hoard or A Pack Rat because I tend to hold on to things I feel can be used & reused for future crafts & projects!Have you ever run into that? My things are organized in folders,& plastic containers & other holding bins & such-so I don't understand why people say that.You can walk through my Apt. without tripping over things & I only leave out the things I'm working on now. I have a Craft/Sewing Room & most of my Craft Stash is in there-but I must confess -It is a room in progress! It's a mess right now.Unfortunately, my desk top computer had to go in there instead of my Office -because of where my phone line was; but I didn't want to pay more to have another one put in. I can't wait to get it all fixed up & organized in there & get My Office done too! Wish me Luck-I need all I can Get! LOL I really like your Style & Ideas & I will continue to check out your crafts & make them. And I plan to check out Modern Country Lady too. Happy Crafting & Happy New Year! Your New Crafty Follower.
