About Me

I am in love with photography [hoping to make it my major], dance, knitting, sewing, yarn, crocheting, home made cards, nature, toy cameras, everything vintage, snail mail, packages, the idea of bosom chums/kindred spirits, [obviously] Anne of Green Gables, walking slowly to take my surroundings in, my kitty Tobi, Kawaii Japenese things, writing things in my notebooks, reading, coloring in coloring books with colored pencils [blush yeah I really still do], swinging until I feel like I'm going to puke, losing my chapsticks [although I don't really love doing it I just do it regardless of how I feel about it], finding shapes in the clouds [even though no one has been able to really see what I see =], and giving things to people to make their day happier. I've been looking for a site like this for a really long time. I can't wait to swap!!!

Favorite Music

I love indie music!! The less known they are the better. That way they don't get their brains all puffed up by mainstream's expectations.

Specific Bands I Love:

A.A. Bondy, Pinback, The XX, Junior Boys, The Temper Trap, Vampire Weekend, Kings of Convenience, Islands, Cribs, Ghostland Observatory, Passion Pit, Girl Talk, France Gall, Faunts, Andrew Bird, Band of Horses, Beck, The Boxer Rebellion, Phoenix [although the radio is killing them for me as of late], Elizabeth & the Catapults, Emme Packer, Kate Havnevik, Meiko, Yael Naim, Empires, Joe Hisaishi, Yann Tiersen, Explosions in the Sky, Doves, Calexico, Leona Naess, Other Lives, Owl City before he assploded, Sigur Rós, The Cinematic Orchestra, Fiona Apple, BoA, Black Keys, Iron & Wine, White Rabbits, Choir of Young Believers, Metric, The Cave Singers, Paramore, Au Revoir Simone, Great Northern, Silversun Pickups, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Circa Survive, Portishead, Bjork, Jose Gonzalez, Gogol Bordello, Hot Chip, Bat for Lashes, Schmaltzy, Sufjan Stevens, Massive Attack, Arcade Fire, Decemberists, Placebo, etc.

I have 12,154 items in my freakin' iTunes. It's slightly ridiculous. I need to delete the stuff that my brother dumped in there. I don't like country, rap, or R&B.

Favorite Books

I've hardly ever rejected reading a book. I've suffered through a couple. I'm more partial to the fantasy, heroine kicking tooshies, apocalyptic, young adult fiction [minus the ridiculous romance/angst plots please], girly classics [obviously talking about Austen]

Authors I've read and liked: Markus Zusak, Suzanne Collins, Julie Hearn, Diana Wynne Jones, Kim Edwards, Lisa See, Alice Sebold.

Books I want to read: Everything Is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer

I would love suggestions =)

Favorite Crafts

I love knitting!!! Crocheting is fun but I love the look of knits.

I try my hand at sewing but I find I hardly have the patience. Ironic since I love knitting so much, I know. Other than that I'm not talented at making things like cards or stationary or scrapbooking.

If you count baking and cooking as a craft then count me in. I've been craving a lemon pasta recipe for a while now.

If someone wants to be a penpal I would love to swap recipes, articles, pictures, etc. Of course I won't be able to send multiple letters a day. I just want a casual swapping =).

Things I DISLIKE

  • Anything Chintzy [as in the cheap things you'd see at garage sales . . . but sometimes garage sales have awesome stuff so . . . I dunno. I guess you'll just have to ask me if it's chintzy or not]
  • Candles
  • Soaps
  • Scrapbooking things like ribbons and stickers [I do like pretty paper though!! So feel free to send those]
  • Religious themed things
  • Stamps

Specific Things I LOVE

  • Favorite color = Aqua/Blue-green
  • Favorite color combos are black+red, blue+deep chocolate brown, paler greens+ivories
  • Also like jewel toned colors
  • Recipes on pretty random cards [vintage would be cool]
  • Humor
  • Art prints [I recently bought prints from a local artist named Adam Ford [his cartoons not his figures although they are quite amazing themselves]. I love his style as well as Esao Andrews. Google them and see their awesome styles]
  • The funny pages
  • Catnip toys [well Tobi likes these]
  • Music
  • Stationary [love writing those snail mail]
  • Photos [vintage, retro, self taken, etc.]
  • Different cultures from all around the globe [fabrics, foods, reading, music, games, toys, snacks, etc.]
  • Cameras [vintage, toy, regular Canon DSLRs + lenses hehehe I kid about the last two . . . unless you really want to buy me them =O]
  • Healthy snacks
  • Anything with bikes, owls, old school cameras, octopi, robots, lynxs or paper airplanes on them =D
  • Hot cocoa with peppermint
  • Books [used, old, run down, but still able to read]
  • Anything homemade makes me happeh!
  • Extra balls of yarn [nothing smaller than a plum, though. I don't think I could make anything out of that small of yarn]
  • Vintage anything [purses, hats, clothes, shoes, compacts, glasses, books, toys, photos, records, typewriters, chairs, anything!]

I also made a really cute voodoo doll once. Anything cutefied is down right chill in my book =D.

Sorry I tried to make my likes and dislikes specific. Hope it helps with the swaps!
