Update 2/21/2017: I disappeared for a while, I guess getting over my mom passing away took longer than a few months. Hmmm. (JK, I was being ridiculous thinking I could still swap) I'm feeling much more like myself these days. And I got engaged, which was also a huge life event for me. I may not be swapping, but I'm not dead! So that's good. :)
I'm Katrina, I'm 28 and live in the great Mitten State. I am basically a Grandma. I just love Grandma stuff. Crafts, cats, coupons, the usual.
My style is simple and classic with some vintage or antique thrown in. I like things with a French/Paris/Eiffel Tower theme, and florals also.
My favorite things to do are read and knit.
I'm a seasonal runner, since it's approximately way to cold to run in Michigan in the winter.
I drink tea and coffee way too much, but I'm never giving them up.
And I have no allergies. Except for penicillin. But if you are sending me penicillin, then we probably have problems other than what I'm allergic too...
Knitting, Quilting, General Sewing, pretty much any crafts that Grandma's like, I like. Except crochet. I can't figure out how to make anything with a crochet hook except a knot. I'm good at making knots.
Things I would like:
Bamboo or wood knitting needles: All sizes, I've got a very small collection right now.
Yarn: Any weight, any colors except brown. Even small leftovers are ok, since I'm working on a beekeepers quilt.
Scrapbooking papers, stickers, embellishments
Fabric: Squares, scraps, lace, ribbons
Mysteries, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Romance (especially historical romance), YA. Pretty much everything except Westerns or Stephen King. I just don't get him. I also love reading cookbooks cover to cover and craft books.
I will always take gently used books. I love reading!
I like Neil Gaimen, John Connolly, Janet Evanovitch, Agatha Christie, Doyle, Johanna Lindsey, Jim Butcher, Dean Koontz
Some Favorite books: Jane Eyre by Bronte The Book of Lost Things by Connolly Rhapsody Saga by Haydon The Hunger Games by Collins A Christmas Carol by Dickens Ender's Game by Card
I don't always listen to a lot of music but I do like classic rock, especially older Tom Petty and the Hearbreakers, classical, Jazz, and Blues.
Movies: The Little Mermaid, Grease, The Avengers, Captain America, Thor, Phantom of the Opera, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Jurassic Park, A Muppets Christmas Carol
TV: Downton Abbey,Dr Who, Call the Midwife, X-Files, Buffy, History Channel anything, Shark Week, Mythbusters, So You Think You Can Dance, Miss Fishers Murder Mysteries
I don't like reality TV, other than the dance show I mentioned.
The other day, my boyfriend asked me why I'm always watching old fashioned British TV shows. I had no idea I watched so many, but it's true. I think in a past life I must have lived in Victorian London.
Color: Red. Pink, blue, purple, sparkles. Everything except brown.
Animal: Dinosaurs. Dinosaur everything. From where I sit, I can see a dinosaur on my notebook, on my t-shirt, and as my profile picture on Facebook. :)
Drink: Coffee (all kinds, except decaf), Tea (Green, Black, Chai, Herbal), Wine (Local wines, White over Red)
Food: Tacos. Followed closely by peanut butter cups.
Scent: Lavender, or Vanilla or Apple Cinnamon
Other: Rocks. I am an amatuer geologist, and I love rocks and minerals. Feel free to send me some. Seriously. I would be a professional geologist but I couldn't pass my chemistry class, so that went out the window.
Random: Eeyore, Wax Figurines, Poetry and quotes, and flowers, especially Daisy's.
Black licorice, heavy metal, westerns of any type, the color brown, decaffeinated coffee (gross, what's the point!?), and judgmental people.
