You can call me Zelda. I'm just a gal from the US who likes swapping and interacting with people from all over. I'm a crafty person and movie lover who is hoping to find others who have similar interests and might just enjoy some maybe-not-so-ordinary-swaps. And I'm always on the lookout for one of your fabulous swaps!
Here are a few things about me...
I'm a HUGE movie lover! Pretty much anything and everything. My favorite though is Horror. I personally think Horror is a wide genre and includes many styles of film. I love it all but my go-to is a really good Thriller with a nice twist or two. I love working my way through themed watchlists. Since the lock down I have missed going to the theater so much! I went every week, sometimes twice a week, but I have more than made up for it in the amount of movies/shows I have consumed in the last year.
I'm always looking for other movie lovers, especially horror/scary movies, to interact with. Don't hesitate to drop me a message if you're a fan too. Have a movie themed swap in mind? Let me know. I'm open to private swaps if they fit my interest and available time. I've been thinking about a Movie Club (like a Book Club) styled swap series. Maybe a Book to Movie Club styled swap series. Hmmm...
Favorite TV - True Blood. Love it! Miss it! I love old black and white like Twilight Zone, Hitchcock, Thriller and watch a lot of late night MeTV. A lot of modern shows that fit in the thriller/mystery category.
I love to travel. My favorite was a crazy road trip. I've done a few fun big trips in the last few years but the best was a month long trip down Route 66. What a crazy and amazing experience! I can't wait to get back out there again once the world is back to somewhat normal.
I've been to Europe, Canada, Mexico and a large portion of the US. Would love to visit Cuba, Egypt and... well everywhere actually.
I love lots of different crafts. A few I've been enjoying lately...
Sending Snail Mail/Happy Mail
Interactive Journal/Books - Books like Wreck This Journal, Create This Book, Etc. I have about all of them but yet to use very many. You know how it goes.
Crochet - While I learned the very basics when I was younger from my mom it's only in the last 1.5 years that I've really been learning. I've done lots of fun swaps here and they have helped my crochet skills immensely!
I prefer to use acrylic yarn. The fancier yarns are pretty but I prefer plain old acrylic. I tend to use mostly worsted weight 4 but I am open to other weights. Sometimes it's nice to have something a little thinner or fun to have something a little chunkier. And, while I love the look of it, no yarns with the tinsel wrapped around the strand. It's so pretty but every time I've tried to use it the tinsel is broken in so many spots.
Please no wool or anything from Hobby Lobby.
Here are some styles and things I enjoy in crafting and life...
Moomins Please! - This is something that is newer to me but I do just love them. Not something we have much of here in the US so anything you might like to share I would love. I just love my little Moomintroll.
The Ghastlies - This is a fabric series designed by Alexander Henry. I just love it!
Retro/Vintage - This is the feel I use for most of my paper crafting/scrapbooking/junk journaling styled crafts.
Halloween/Darker Themed - Halloween anytime of year is perfectly acceptable with me. I love bats, black cats, fortune tellers and anything witchy. With a vintage/retro feel is even better.
Art Deco - Roaring Twenties, flappers, the music and Zelda Fitzgerald.
Book Pages - I love using real book pages in my crafting. I love pages with foreign text, poem/poetic content, music or dictionary styled pages.
Pretty Papers in above styles
Postcards/Cards - With retro/vintage movie posters, pinups, vintage ladies, old weird B movies or just plain oddness.
Pretty, Pretty Pens - So many pretty pens!!! I do love colorful pens of all sorts. Just makes life more fun! I especially enjoy using really fine tips. I've also started using alcohol markers and find them a lot of fun.
Favorite color, Chartreuse - Lots of yellowy green and greenish yellow!!! I like Chartreuse and Black together but all colors are great. Maybe not pastels as much but I'm good with pretty much anything when it comes to color.
Tea - I do enjoy tea. I drink mostly herbal teas but do enjoy a caffeinated tea now and then. Sealed only please.
No food - I am going to be doing an elimination diet soon so please no food items.
No Hello Kitty
Nothing Cutesy - Nothing overly cutesy looking or geared towards kids. Unless it's something specific that has been noted somewhere.
No spiders!!! - Seriously. I will haunt you after the heart attack you give me and make your life a nightmare. Ha!
While I LOVE Halloween I do not want anything with realistic looking spiders on it. Not really needing non realistic looking spiders either. Webs are just fine though.
In addition to what I've listed above, here are a few other things to help you out. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have. I'm more than happy to help.
Movies - I love my movies!!! I'm a big fan of Thrillers/Horror. Below are 2 lists. These are just for ideas on what I like and what I already have. Please feel free to choose something not on these lists.
I already have most movies with Alex SkarsgΓ₯rd, Heath Ledger and Keanu Reeves.
Please - No Johnny Depp, Tim Burton, Mel Gibson or Julia Roberts.
Escape Room Games - I love these puzzle styled games/books. Below is a list of ones I already have.
Books - See next section for book preferences.
Paper Ephemera - When I do Junk Journaling/Scrapbook styled activities I'm always wishing I had more bits and pieces to create layered looks. I have tons of pretty papers, washi tapes, photos I'll print out, book pages and some other bits but I could really use more little things. Die Cuts or other ephemera goodies in the styles listed above in my other sections (vintage, retro, antiqued, vintage/retro ladies, etc.).
I am open to anything you would like to send. If you thought it was great and want to pass it on I'm all for it!
I'll admit, I love my storytelling in movie form. I am so lazy when it comes to reading but I do enjoy it! I really enjoy reading books that movies or TV shows are based on. I enjoy seeing how my favorites started out or seeing how both versions compare.
Just like my movie watching, I do enjoy a good thriller in book form too. Twisty, keep you guessing stories are always fun.
Here's 2 Amazon lists that can help you out... These are just for ideas on what I like and what I already have. Please feel free to choose something not on these lists.
While I like Thrillers and Horror, I don't really want anything that's too much True Crime styled. Even if it's fiction, nothing heavy on serial killers. It's one thing to be in that for an hour and a half for a movie. It's a whole other thing to be in that, in lots of detail, for days with a book.
