Hi! I'm a wife, and a SAHM, homeschooling my 3 dks in a relaxed way :-) I love to sew and sell totes, aprons and children's clothes.
I love everything vintage!!!! I shop at thrift stores and used bookstores for myself and would be happy to receive vintage goodness in a swap :)
We live in northern Michigan, surrounded by water and beauty. We love to watch birds and the wildlife that wander through our yard.
Autumn is my favorite time of year- colorful leaves falling, making homemade bread and the crisp apples at the local orchard. Everything about this season is perfection!
Sewing, totes, aprons, children's clothes and I'm getting ready to start my first quilt
Embroidery and Smocking
Knitting, mostly mittens for the dks and dishcloths for me
Crochet- I'm a beginner! I love to crochet with cotton yarn.
Firefly, Buffy, Angel
I like to read genre fiction- mysteries, mostly. I love Anne Perry, haven't read the last 3 or 4 in her Monk and Pitt series or any of her WWI series at all!!
I like political NF and how-to craft books.
I have a collection of vintage cookbooks, I especially LOVE Farm Journal cookbooks.
I enjoy reading old housekeeping pamphlets (like the promotionals for vacuum cleaners or Sunbeam mixers), they are like a tiny glimpse into the idealized world of homekeepers who have gone before ;)
The Big Sleep
Shaun of the Dead
I like the scent of vanilla and 'Linen' or 'Cotton' scented candles and such. But, I don't care for most strongly perfumed things.
All colors of the rainbow make me happy, but I have a particular fondness for all shades of green.
As a confirmed organized wanna-be, all manner of papers for listmaking or calendar keeping make me giddy!
I'd prefer items that are rated PG or family friendly :) No goth or anime, please :)
Please note: My dd has severe nut allergies. At first, I wasn't going to put that on my page, but have found that she is usually standing over my shoulder when I open my swaps. So, please, don't send anything that contains peanuts or tree nuts.
I love chocolate sweets, though, so if you're so inclined to send a goodie, feel free! Items with the warning: May contain nuts, are safe to send, as she will not be eating them....just I will! Sorry if this is confusing! Please pm me if you need more explanation, or ignore completely if the whole allergy thing stresses you out :-D
I like tea (especially Earl Grey) and love coffee, but prefer regular roasts, not flavored.
Kali~ my oldest, 12 years old and loves all girly things! Her favorite color is yellow. She has a 4yo Jack Russell Terrier, named Jubal. She loves notebooks, cards, etc. that have pictures of a JRT on them :) She's a typical big sister and loves to mother her younger siblings and cousins. See allergy note above. Safe treats are Skittles and PLAIN Hershey Chocolate Bars.
Jackson~ my middle, 10 years old. He is a Star Wars fanatic!!! Collector of Pokemon cards and Poke anything. He has a real generous and giving nature.
Clinton~ my youngest, 6 years old. He is following in big brother's footsteps and likes Star Wars, too. He also likes sports, even as a baby, he watched any game on tv that involved a ball being thrown around! He just lost his first tooth and is proud to be a member of the tooth fairy club ;-)
