About Me

12/17/11 - Sorry everyone. Life has been crazy, and I have been working a lot of overtime. I will be trying to get caught up on all swaps this week. I am very sorry.

I am a crazy, busy, married, crafting mother. My husband and I have 4 children between us. I have one daughter (9), and he has two daughters (13 & 9) and one son (11), and it is a crazy house when we are all together. Especially when you add the pets (Catahoula Puppy, Leopard Gecko, Snapping Turtle, and a full saltwater tank with too many things to count).

By day I work for an online retailer, doing embroidery (you buy a bag or baby blanket, I put the name on it) and run our apparel & accessories division. I love what I do.

By night, I like to make things, search blogs and things online, and tend to my kiddo and fur baby.

I love all baby animals, nature and daydreaming. My mind is always racing with new ideas and crazy ideas.

Favorite Music

I love all types of music, but not country or rap. My taste is very ecletic, jumping from modern pop, to classical to hard rock to zydeco.

Favorite Crafts

My passion is doing things with my hands. I have an obsession with machines embroidery and yarn. I can barely knit or crochet, but yarn draws me in.

I love paper, specifically origami. I like fun patterns and colors.

I can't draw or do anything realistic looking, so I tend to draw abstract things. I am fascinated with shapes and colors.

I love the idea of baking and cooking, and making candy. My next endeavor is homemade marshmallows. :)

Favorite Colors

I love all shades of purple. With pink, blues, and silvers :)

I also like my occasional primary color.

Collections

I collect junk.... well my husband thinks so. I don't like to get rid of anything in the rare occasion I can upcycle it into something else.

I love monkeys and turtles, daisies and lilacs, beads and fabric.

Wishlist

Yarn and fabric - Fun colors and patterns Paper - origami, scrapbook, craft and art Books - Crafting of all sorts

General

While brainstorming, I came up with other things that I like that don't really fit into any category:

Vampires (True Blood, Twilight, House of Night) Kings & Queens (ie, Tudor era) Quirky (if you think it is quirky, I will probably like it) Jellyfish, Bubbles, Seahorses, Saltwater Life

Comment: Hi Sara, Thank you for the swap and the extras. I will put those great envies to great use. I had to giggle at Leope's Name. Love that, we have 3 L.Geckos and 2 SE box turtles, but they are names Myan and Sheldon. I like Tortimore TOO!! Very creative :O) Peace and thank you again.

Hallo saraJane Profile Love ♥ Quick Swap #2

My name is also Jane, my real name i mean. It's a name you don't hear much in holland. I love origami just as you do, i'm not so good in it, but i'm trying! I also collect junk, my mom always told me that i should live on the trash-place. I could find there so much 'pretty' stuff

Happy Swapping!

Sounds like you have a busy life, I can hardly keep up to my one 4 year old!

I just checked out your Etsy shop, and I think your Harry Potter Themed items are a great idea! I'd love to learn how to embroider, but my hands are already full with my little Etsy Shop!
