I love to make things; sew, knit, bake, make food or simply adorn something I own. What I lack in skills I sometimes make up for in enthusiasm or plain idiocy.
I have way too many books, a sewing machine, a knitting basket, tons of music, a live-in-man, three computers, more than 200 nail polishes, lots of make-up, dust bunnies and a guitar I wish I knew how to use. I love to cook, love pretty things.
I will take great pride and joy in making every swap I participate in as good as possible.
Please; if there is something wrong with something I sent out, or if it doesn't arrive - please contact me and I'm sure we can fix it. I'd hate for someone to miss out if things should get lost in the mail, get broken of if you feel like it did not meet swap requirements! Never hesitate to PM me!
Tori Amos, Nick Cave, Decemberists, Death Cab for Cutie, Ramstein, The Cure, Depeche Mode, Fiona Apple, Placebo, Lush, Belle and Sebastian, Seigmen and lots more. Right now I'm mostly in an Indie-phase punctuated by some rock.
Anything Neil Gaiman. If I only had to read one author for the rest of my life it would be Gaiman. Other favourites include: Terry Pratchett, PD James, Marian Keyes, Siri Hustvedt, everything Moomin, Haruki Murakami. I love cartoons, and am an avid reader of comics (both childrens, and adults).

My neighbour Totoro! A Nightmare Before Christmas! Both make me insanely happy.
Anything Ghibli, anything in 3D, most Disney, Charlie and the chocolate factory, V for Vendetta, Batman, 300, Ghost World... and lots more. I simply love movies, and watch several every week. I watch and enjoy both drama, action, comedy, children's movies - but can hold my enthusiasm for too much soppy drama or too sickly sweet romance...
