I am a 28 year old wife and amateur crafter and amateur cook and amateur painter and amateur seamstress... I'm messy and can't seem to keep to one craft for very long. I love my husband with all my heart and can't imagine my life without him. We have 2 cats.
My blog is really the best way to learn about me if you don't know me.
cocco rosie, my brightest diamond, sol seppy, edith piaf, emiliana torrini, imogen heap, fiona apple, sigur ros, amiina, climber, keren ann, innocence mission, janet klein, jenny lewis and the watson twins, joanna newsom, stars, cesaria evora, bjork, billie holiday, belle and sebastian, kent, radiohead, the cardigans, damien rice, beck, moby, the shins,bright eyes,the postal service, death cab for cutie, múm, regina spektor, trespassers william... yeah i like music
Music i don't like:
country everything, top 40 pop, r&b, rap. But even in those genre's there is at least one exception artist that i like.
amelie, garden state, i heart huckabees, finding neverland, a very long engagement, goodbye lenin, royal tenenbaums, pride and prejudice (the bbc one) donnie darko, the dark crystal, labyrinth, orlando, a room with a view, the science of sleep, little miss sunshine, mirrormask, pans labyrinth, eddie izzard-dressed to kill
Buffy, Angel, Bones, Veronica Mars, Firefly, BBC Coupling, BBC Office, House, PBS anything really, travel and cooking shows. Oh and BBC Dr. Who, the most recent series.It might be my favorite.
currently i dabble in or am learning to sew, needle felt, water color painting, screen printing, embroidery, oil crayons. I'm really excited about sewing and needle felting most of all right now. I have a picasa site which i put pictures of the stuff i have made. let me know if you'd like to see.
I have in the past made paper, candles, soap, lipbalm, done some beading, cross stitch, clay pendants... I'm sure i have forgotten something
current pop culture/mall culture things. mass produced stuff. disney anything. girly movies for the most part. American patriotic things. romance novels, true crime books, christian fiction. reality tv of all sorts... really, i'm not into being emotionally manipulated by the things around me, as much as is possible.
I really love muted bright colors and clean lined designs. I absolutely love anything from about 1920-1940. if is could i would dress from only that time frame. I am mad about vintage kitchens. Oh someday i will own a beautiful 50's turquoise fridge and matching range.
I'm also really into... japanese kwaii, french anything, vintage, owls, deer, birds, mini things, silhouettes, graphic arts, fairy tales and children's stories- creepy, slightly off ones, :) random kitschy stuff.
