I may not be on much in the next week or so. I am having surgery on Wednesday the 24th to have all of my teeth taken out. I will log in when the pain......or pain killers........allow.
I love private swaps that are rated. If you are interested please message me and we can set something up.
My name is Dawn. I'm a 40-something divorced mother of 2. I live in central Indiana and work in an automotive factory. My 20 year old son is into art and skateboarding. My 17 year old daughter is animal crazy. Her goal is to become an Animal Enforcement Officer. We have two cats. Yahtzee - he is tiger striped and Pip - she is part Munchkin and is black and white. The name Pip came from the black dot in the middle of her white chin....like a pip on a domino.
Postcard collections I'm working on:
Sea shell postcards
Palm tree postcards
Baby animal postcards
Postcards with cutouts
Odd shaped postcards
QUALITY handmade postcards
I like a wide range of movies. Some of my favorites:
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory......the original version with Gene Wilder.
Phantom of the Opera
The Green Mile
Ghosts of the Abyss
I don't like most science fiction, extreme war movies (Saving Private Ryan), black and white movies and movies that are completely subtitled.
I am a reality tv addict. My favorite is Big Brother. I also watch Survivor, The Amazing Race, Project Runway, Top Chef, Master Chef and Hell's Kitchen.
The channels I usually watch are The Food Network, A&E, Bravo, The Travel Channel, TLC and Discovery.
I do counted cross stitch. I mostly do Christmas ornaments but I also do bigger projects at times.
I scrapbook. All of my scrapbooks are 12 x 12.
I am in the process of making a quilt. I have never done this before so this is an experiment. All of the squares are different and have a link to something personal.....things I like, favorite holidays, reminders of places I've been and people who are important to my life. It may turn out to be hideous......I think every color and hue of the rainbow is included in it.......but it will mean a lot to me.
I've started trying my hand at ATC's. I love making them but I'm not top-notch at it so far.
I collect playing cards to make decks that have a different picture/design on the back of each card.
I'm also working on a project that will use only Queen of Clubs and Jokers.
To finish my first deck of cards I still need:
Diamaonds - 5, 8, J, K, Jokers
Spades - 7, 8, Jokers
Hearts - A, 2, Jokers
Clubs - A, 10, J, Q, Jokers
Lined recipe cards. Actually any recipe cards but especially lined ones.
New, unused postcards.
My favorite poet is Emily Dickinson.
Other poets I like are Elizabeth Barrett Browning, William Wordsworth, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Lord Byron, Alfred Tennyson, Robert Frost, Oscar Wilde and Walt Whitman.
Raccoons.......even have one tattooed on my ankle.
Fox.....especially the red ones.
The beach.....ocean, shells, palm trees, sand castles.
I love to travel.
The Wizard of Oz.......especially Glinda and the flying monkeys.
Counted cross stitch Christmas ornament patterns
Ephermera......especially vintage cards, valentines, menus, reciepts, recipes, book pages
I'm fascinated by the RMS Titanic. I am interested in everything about it from the disaster itself, to the people who were on the ship to the government hearings that were held here and abroad. I admit it.....I'm a Titanic geek.
The colors black, green, peach/coral and blue.
Relaxing in a bubble bath with a good book and a cold drink.
My favorite word is dream.
The flowers I like are bleeding heart, lilac and lily of the valley.
The smell of things baking (gingerbread etc.), lilacs, tuberose and lily of the valley.
My favorite number is 11.
The sound of water.......rain/thunderstorms, ocean waves, fountains, babbling brooks.
The only cartoon characters I have any interest in are Happy Bunny, The Flintstones, Hong Kong Phooey, Garfield and the characters from the Toy Story movies.
I like stars and star-shaped things.
Coloring........I have my own coloring books and big box of crayons.
I collect Little Golden Books......only the ones with the metallic gold on the spines. I have about 600.
