About Me

IMPORTANT: I am currently on a volunteer trip to Africa (Arusha, Tanzania!). I have left my swaps with my boyfriend who is mailing them out for me (including the resend). I don't have time to update each individual swap as sent, but he will be mailing them! I wont have internet, but I will be sure to check and make sure everything went OK upon my return. I am returning mid September (Sep 12).

I like to make things and I like to collect things. And generally, I collect more than I make. I have a lot of yarn, but only ever manage to finish knitting something once in a great while!

I love making jewelry, and I am currently taking jewelry design classes at a local college and getting my A.A.

I like to metal detect at the park and the beach. I love digging up "treasure"! I own an Ace250 and a Garrett pinpointer. I definitely prefer beach hunting, but that may be because I am afraid of tearing up the grass!

I love colours, especially green. And yellow, orange, brown, grey, blue, purple... Lots of colours! I also love cool textures and patterns.

I collect stickers, buttons, beads, rolled pennies, yarn, fabric, vintage anything, things with elephants on them, tea pots, mugs, tea cups, foreign moneys, books, stamps, et cetera.

I love 25 cent machines and plastic toys.

I love to travel and visit new places.

I am a gigantic huge nerd/geek/whatever. I am currently in a tabletop RPG and my character is a 19 year old male mechanic from Venus who likes to make sculptures named Jonny Luen Yang. I love video games, computer games, science fiction, fantasy, board games, comics, you name it. I love Captain Picard. A lot.

I love fashion, small details, writing with coloured pens, drawing, painting...

I basically like anything and everything, and I love to try new things.

I am currently trying to become a better runner and I run along the trails next to my house. I am starting my first real garden. I love sneakers and slip-ons like no other.

Feel free to look at my Etsy faves (linked above) just to get a feel of colours/patterns and my general likes. I really do like lots of things, lots of colours, and lots of styles. :)

Tea

I love all tea, both bagged and loose! My boyfriend is also a big tea drinker so even though I don't like chamomile, he loves it. Between the two of use we'll drink anything.

I especially like jasmine, chai, peppermint, earl grey, and spicy orange types. My boyfriend is currently obsessed with jasmine and lady grey (claims it is better than earl grey and we just agree to disagree
