Title: Hey there! :-)
Post by: Shelby-3000 on September 05, 2021, 12:54:07 AM
Hey hello and thanks a lot for accepting me to the Arena!  :ohyeah: (I already love those emoticons by the way!)

My name is Sheraine, I'm 27 years old and I live in the Netherlands. I successfully did finish my secondary vocational education (MBO in Dutch) back in 2018 as a Graphic Designer and this is also my profession at the moment, also as a hobby of course!  :biggrin: I just love to get busy with Photoshop, Illustrator and creating posters, flyers, stickers or even print on textile like T-Shirts or hoodies! It's really awesome to do as a job and also just for the fun.

Besides, my other hobby are my 9 guinea pigs, because I just love them, they're so cute to look at! To answer the question about the most important people in my life are my parents or course and my aunt, since I got my very first G1 pony ever (and also for about 24 years my last G1 pony) from my mom (Dutch Shell Pony it is! :thumb:)) This pony is pretty important to me, because I got her since 1996 when I was 2 years old and it was one of the first days at the kindergarten (I was the only one of the kids who got a MLP by the way!) So even if she'll be worth over $200 I will never ever sell Dutch Shell haha. And my aunt is important to me, because she made me since one month collecting the vintage G1 ponies for the first time (that's why I said Dutch Shell was back then my very first and also my very last G1 pony ever for years.) My aunt owned about 40x '80s ponies and she didn't sell them and were still near mint condition or in mint condition. But unfortunately she left them a few months ago in the caravan, which caught fire and most of her ponies are burnt (I can still cry for this accident, such a big BIG pity that this happened to her ponies...) So she gave me motivation to start collecting them.

For so far I started collecting the G1 ponies since July this year and I already own 37 ponies (including my Dutch Shell)  :satisfied: And there are still some ponies on their way, about 9 so far, like twinkle eyed Bright Eyes and twinkle eyed Tic Tac Toe. And I almost forget about 3 out of 4 Starlight babies (Explorer, Mischief and Stella, and I have to buy Nightsong!)

And furthermore I own more commons. But I REALLY want to collect all Dutch ponies, there are about 13 or 14 out there? And for this reason I entered the Arena, because I really hope you guys can help me out finding a few Dutch ponies to complete my collection, like:
- Dutch Sing-A-Long pony 🎤
- Dutch Love pony 💌
- Dutch Flower pony 🌼
- Dutch Schoolbag pony 💼
- Dutch Dolphin pony 🐬
Thanks already for your help and thanks again for accepting me to the group!!  :biggrin: :ohyeah:

Hi, Sheraine! Thanks for sharing, and it's so cool you have 9 guinea pigs!! An old neighbor of mine from college had 2 guinea pigs of her own, and they loved to be held and hand fed--adorable!
