This Pinterest board contains a lot of things that make me happy. Maybe after reading below, if you think we're like-minded, you'll like it too.
I knit mostly, and also make clothes and the occasional quilt when I have my hands on a working sewing machine. I like buttons, fabric (even little scraps), and yarn.
Ocean animals are the best, including: whales, turtles, manatees, manta rays, dolphins, octopuses, starfish, and anemones. Favourite land animals include dogs, cats, owls, sloths, and ducks.
If you're sending actual food, I have a crazy sweet tooth and will devour any chocolate/candy/sweets from where you live. My favourite flavour is grape.
If you're sending recipes, please keep in mind that I don't eat beef (for environmental reasons) but chicken and fish are fine. I like cooking vegetarian meals although I'm not one. I use my crock pot a lot, being so busy and all. I love vegetables. I bake a lot as well (you know that person you invite to potlucks just for their dessert? yeah.)
It's so hard to find someone who doesn't have a cupboard just for tea, I find! The word is spreading :) I drink black tea all day at work and rooibos tea all night at home. I try different, interesting flavours as much as possible.
Best kinds from DAVIDsTEA (you should go try them): Glitter and Gold, Organic Blueberry Jam, The Earl's Garden, Mint Julep, Brazillionaire, Mint Chocolate Rooibos, Creme Caramel Rooibos, Chocolate Chili Chai

Please don't send earrings unless they are stainless steel, I'm one of those nickel people.
I am really not a fan of random pieces of paper or ephemera, or little tags, or cards, or ATCs, or anything else in that category. I just don't know what to do with it ...
I'm always up for swapping (giving or receiving) these things in addition to what's above:
-Handmade Harry Potter items
-Something similar to this
-Pinterest or profile surprises
