I am a retired Realtor that enjoys spending time with my 3 fur-kids, a Yorkie, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a big fat Persian cat. The rest of the time I spend with my beautiful Grandbabies and knitting. I also dabble in a little scrapbooking! I love things that make the house...or me...smell good. Since retiring I have gotten back into cooking and watch food network a lot. I like unusual kitchen gadgets, fridge magnets,etc. I'm obsessed with anything to do with knitting...yarn, stitch markers, needles, patterns, bags, books...seriously I love ANYTHING knitting related! In yarns I lean toward natural fibers or natural blends. Don't care much for the real fuzzy-novelty type stuff. Man made fibers are ok as long as they are really soft. Hate scratchy, splity acrylic..the really cheap stuff.
Easy Listening, country or soft-rock
Fine Point sharpies - any color
Gel pens & highlighter pens - any color
Small soaps - I have a huge soap jar with soaps from hotels all over the place and unique soaps in the bathroom.
Scrapbook adhesives - I never have enough
Candles and things that make the house smell good
Bath and body goodies - pretty much any scent except musk
Whimsey jars - never seen one in person but they sound so neat!
I love "saga" type books written in series. No sci-fi please...anything else is ok.
Hand knitted items - I knit for other people all the time but would love to have something knit by someone else!
Kitchen gadgets - I can get in real trouble at Pampered Chef parties :-)
Cookbooks - I collect them and love trying new dishes
Fridge magnets - I have 7 grandkids and LOTS of artwork to hang :-)
Tote bags - Just no velcro closures, please...they snag my yarn
Miniatures - Pretty much any kind. I built a 6 room dollhouse years ago and still like to put new things in there.
Address or return address labels - I like to enter sweepstakes occasionally too
3x5 blank note cards
stamps for sweepstaking
Picture frames - with 7 grandkids I never have enough of those either
Swap cards or wish granted cards
Coffees and flavored coffee creamers....love, love!
Anything related to knitting....seriously ANYTHING except cheapo yarn
Cds by top twelve American Idol contestants...cheesy, I know....but am trying to collect them all. I currently have ones by Kimberly Locke, Bucky Covington, Taylor Hicks,Clay Aiken (Thousand Different Ways),Kelly Clarkson (Thankful),Kellie Pickler (Small Town Girl),Daughtry, and Katherine McPhee. Had more but some jerk stole them from my car!
Arts & crafts stuff for my grand kids to do while visiting...glitter glue pens, watercolors, paper, buttons, glue and glue sticks, crayons...pretty much anything!
THINGS I DISLIKE
Not much I don't like except cheap yarn (stuff from the major chain type stores) and novelty or fuzzy type stuff...just not my cup of tea!
Mostly knitting and some scrapbooking
