About Me

My Lady girl.

lady


I have always enjoyed swapping books, crafts, etc with people. I am finishing my last 2 classes for an English degree before I tackle grad school. I have a pup, who is older than the picture above.

loves/obsessions/collectings

  • Standard size Traveler's Notebook accessories/inserts/stickers/etc
  • Llamas/Alpacas/Flamingos/Cactus are my spring obsession!
  • Hello Kitty
  • Penguins
  • Cupcakes
  • Receiving mail
  • Messenger bags
  • Decorative/whimsical socks
  • Stickers
  • Yarn
  • Hot air balloons
  • Young Adult Books
  • The words "giggle" and "quack"
  • Fabric
  • Blank journals
  • Postcards
  • Fall & Winter
  • Felt
  • Polka dots
  • Note books (of all sizes)
  • seahorses
  • woodland forest creatures/mushrooms
  • tote bags
  • lip balm
  • rain, rain clouds, umbrellas
  • Tinker Bell
  • Hogwarts House: Slytherin

TEAS

I have a crazy obsession with loose teas from The Spice and Tea Exchange. Coconut Oolong, Orange Dulce, Orange Smoothie. mmmmmm

I also really like the Lipton Triangle tea bags. Let's see, what else-I love trying Tazo, Numi, and Yogi teas. Pretty much, I will try anything at least once! Honey stirrers are love :)

Favorite Crafts

  • Just got into watercoloring, brush pens, mixed media art journals, etc
  • Yarn crafts: Crocheting
  • Cross stitch
  • Paper crafts: cardmaking, scrapbooking, ATCs, Inchies, Twinchies, paper garlands, etc
  • Fabric: I also like to sew, I am a novice, but enjoy making pillows, plushies, etc.
  • I am also a novice at Quilling-but I want to learn more and do more!
  • Wreaths, with felt, paper, flowers

Favorite Books

I am an avid Young Adult book reader. I especially like Paranormal fiction/Dark Fantasy. Some of my favorites include: Richelle Mead, Melissa Marr, Sarah J Maas, Alyxandra Harvey. And there are some newer YA authors that I am in love with!

But I will read just about anything. Children's Books: Mo Willems' Elephant and Piggie series. Kevin Henkes, Amy Hest, OLIVIA!!!!!

Years ago, I discovered and fell in love with the original Grimm's Fairy Tales-not the cutesy, nice ones we see from Disney, etc. I like the fact that they were originally dark and not so much on the 'happily ever after.' (I don't particularly like happy endings in books.) In the same vein, I am a fan of modern re-tellings of fairy tales. Right now, I am on a Baba Yaga kick. I am especially fond of Sleeping Beauty and Beauty and the Beast.

Favorite Music

My music tastes vary so much. It all just depends on my mood. Currently Slipknot is on repeat. I am addicted to live performances on YouTube. Acoustic Michale Graves & Corey Taylor = Love

Favorite Movies

Dawn of the Dead, Princess Bride, Empire Records, Resident Evil series, Juno, Nightmare Before Christmas, Devil Wears Prada, Pitch Perfect, Harry Potter, Deadpool, Suicide Squad

Favorite Television

I don't really watch CURRENT tv, but for some faves: Buffy, Alias, HIMYM, Brooklyn 99, Crime tv stuff, Hells Kitchen...ummmmm?

What I Don't Really Like

Vanilla scented anything! Just...no. Bubble bath stuff. I'm not a big fan of beads either, but I'll not turn em away.

I'm not a fan of St. Patrick's Day. I don't mind green stuff, or shamrocks on their own, but if it is a St. Patty's thing, please hold on to it and send it to someone who would like it more. Thanks :)

Earrings. I do not have pierced ears.

Wishlist

  • Japanese/European fabrics
  • Washi/Deco Tape
  • I'm looking for hot air balloon items-fabric pieces, stamped images, stickers, something you've created, etc
  • USED gift cards. I'm wanting to start projects using them. I don't want any with balances, just the cards :)
  • Magnet backers- can be advert magnets, or fresh/clear magnets
  • Needle minders
  • Aida cloth/embroidery needles/cross stitch goodies
  • Accessories/inserts/stickers/baubles for Happy Planner/Standard size Travel Planner
  • Llamas/Alpacas/Flamingos/Cactus

Favorite Color(s)

  • Pink & Black
  • Shades of purple-lavender especially
  • Polka dots! (Not really a color per se, but they are still fun!)
  • Shades of dark red

Comment: Hey neighbor! Yes, we stay indoors in the A/C a lot these days! Luckily, it hasn't gotten over 90 too many days. We started a small container garden and I "tend" it in the am and sometimes the evening. But in the evening, the mosquitos are out!
Response: I keep telling the spiders outside they need to take care of the mosquitos, but they aren't listening to me lol The container gardening is so awesome! I hope you get lots of tasty foods :)

Thank you so much for the antique book pages. They're perfect! Folded is fine, I'm making smaller black-out poems so they'll be mailable.
