I'm still working on the new website. Most of the posts (including artworks, blog posts and 365 posts from 2009, 2010 and 2011) are missing. These posts will return eventually. Thanks for your patience!
You have reached Rosana Kooymans's personal site! On this site, you'll find my blogs, 365 (photography) posts, photography, artworks and other stuff I find amusing. I hope you enjoy your visit here. To learn more about me as a person, continue reading!
I'm Rosana Kooymans, a 28 year old girl from The Netherlands. I'm Wouter's girlfriend, and Seth's mommy. I have lipedema, a disease affecting my legs and arms. I also have pelvic instability, bowel/constipation issues, asthma, urticaria and quite a few other allergies. The reason I mention all of them is because one makes the other harder to tolerate. Nonetheless I'm quite a happy person.
I love design, art and photography. I'm a gamer girl. And I love traveling. London is one of my favorite cities. But only San Francisco feels like home. ♥
Many years ago I founded a Sims fansite called SimsNetwork. I wanted a place for myself and other people in the community to talk about The Sims, exchange items for the game and stuff like that. It grew into a big community. Throughout the years I also started a few "sister sites" like SporeNetwork and MySimsNetwork. By now these sister sites have merged with the bigger SNW. I still post news, write articles, keep an eye on the forums and I create in-game downloads and other goodies (like wallpapers). SNW is one of my biggest hobbies.
Junior is a small leopard plushie who came to life because Wouter and I were being silly. Things got a little out of control. Junior got his own (mo)blog and started reporting from game events and expos. Eventually I decided to give Junior a proper website. Anyone who knows Junior knows he is a bit of a diva and self proclaimed celebrity. So I created Juniorwood, a Hollywood themed website for Junior. Although the website itself in need of a slight makeover, people always have a great laugh when they meet Junior and have their picture taken with him.
I have my own companies; Miss Design and Retro Hugs. Companies and organizations hire Miss Design for design work, mostly websites. Retro Hugs is my creative outlet. It's where I create hand-made products and sell them to people all over the world.
Need to connect with me? You can send me a mail through this website, or on Miss Design if your mail is work related.
