I was BIG into swapping for a while, then had some "personal health concerns" and dropped out.
I appreciate all those that swapped with me, and love the great things I received. Thanks Mother of 3 wonderful and grown sons, the Oldest is in National Guards, he has just returned from Kosovo on a U.N. peacekeeping mission, now finishing his degrees in college. The Middle Child is my "scarey" computer geek son,who recently moved to Florida ( we're all jealous!.) The Baby recently finished college for "Computer Integrated machining", and has started his own business. Grandmother of 1 Favorite Grandson age 14 and 1 Princess Granddaughter age 10. Married to my Favorite Husband in the Whole Wide World. I have a Shih Tzu puppies named Wilson and a hunting dog named Pete.
Easily Amused !! Easily Impressed. I appreciate the efforts that go into people making things from their heart. The kind of books I read are ones that I learn something from: any humor, art/crafts, organizing, or personal growth type. I don't read many "stories" I guess is what I mean. **LIKE: most any colors: "earth tones", especially blue, burgundy, beige, green. Love "American" things, "Up North Lodge Style" moose, pine trees, fish,cabins, boats,camping, etc. (cause I live in Minnesota !) Like most any "dolly" things, including Barbie. Love funky yarns, beads, charms, lace, "antique" old things, (doesn't have to be old, just look old is fine too). Collect sewing theme things and especially (collectible souvenir) thimbles. Love old hankies, hand embroidered table linens, towels, pillow cases that type thing. **DON'T LIKE: USA bashers ( just walk away from me now... it is for the best, trust me ! ).
Not a big music person, listen to what ever on the radio.
Jim Henson's "The Labyrinth" "Flashdance" "The Secret Window" "Pirates of the Caribbean" "Mrs Winterborne" "Cold Comfort Farm""Mother"
The "home maker- over" ones & craft ones !! Neat The Dog Whisperer. House. Project Runway. CSI, NCIS, that type. Big Bang Theory
IF CRAFTS WERE METH...I'D HAVE NO TEETH !
I have done, or do crafts of all kinds.I make Dolls: cloth, fimo clay, porcelain. Make Barbie and other doll clothes. Knit, crochet, cross stitch, calligraphy,pencil drawings, ATCs, silk ribbon and regular embroidery. sew, quilt, create ...lets just say, I don't do tatting! and have not yet learned to do welding. I have a Flickr site, my name is "Fingers Inc." ask me for a link. I've got lots of photos of my "artistic creations" there.
If you are looking for swap based things for me...my requests would be: old handkerchiefs ( like Grandma used to have) I want to make a quilt from them, the flower and patterned one, not just the white ones with lace edging. Tote Bags of any sort, the larger the better !. Yarn, any color or even partial skeins are fine, because I can use to add embellishments to things I make. Beads of any kind, I love putting them on things. Sewing themed items, such as collectible thimbles, threads, decorations, etc. Embroidery floss and silk ribbon for embroidering. Fabric, mostly cottons for quilting please. Hope this helps give you ideas. Please email me if you have any questions, I'd be happy to work with you !
