I just love making stuff! My main area of crafting is paper crafts (atcs, postcards, skinnys), but I also enjoy sewing mini stuffies (aka plush toys) from felt, making matchbox shrines and a bit of creative writing in themed post cards and mini zines. I have an extensive collection of patterned paper and rubber stamps.
I love the cute! My fave Hello Kitty characters are Keroppi & Choco Cat. I also like Tokidoki and all that super kawaii cute stuff!!! I think blind boxes are too much fun. I've been collection the Tokidoki unicorn blind box figures lately. I think I have about 6 in my herd :)
I really love Halloween, but not the spooky stuff. I like cute, fun and retro Halloween instead :)
Swapping is a hobby for me, but I take my commitments seriously. I will always send a quality swap and I will send it on time. If for some reason you do don't receive something from me, please let me know so that I can resend if needed.
I pledge to rate. I almost always rate the same day I receive swaps.
HEARTS! I give hearts based on the amount of effort that was put into your swap. This is more important to me than the extras! The content of the swap and whether the requirements were met is what I rate on. :D
If you are sending late and do not show your partner the courtesy of letting them know, then you should not be surprised to receive a 3 rating. Sending on time is part of the swap requirements. If an issue comes up just say something before the due date passes :)
I just love the Twilight & Harry Potter books. My fave from the HP series is book 5 OOTP. I love "all caps" Harry (when he's angry and his dialogue is in all capital letters). It's hard being a moody teen and having the dark lord sharing your head! My favorite published Twilight book is the first one and have hopes that someday Stephanie Meyer will decided to finish Midnight Sun.
Some other faves are:
Bill Bryson- his travel books are awesome and his sense of humor matches mine perfectly.
Malcolm Gladwell- his books always give you something to think about.
Nick Hornby- I'm a big fan of Slam & About A Boy
Dave Eggers- I loved A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius
Neil Gaiman- I really like Neverwhere, Coraline & the Graveyard Book
Classics- Pride & Prejudice, Jane Eyre
Series Books- Sookie Stackhouse, Percy Jackson & the Olympians, Hunger Games, Divergent Trilogy, Grisha Trilogy
Recent reads: Little Bee (you must read this one! I shall not spoil it by telling you what it is about, but it is amazing!), The Fault in Our Stars, The Night Circus & Why We Broke Up.
Some movies I enjoy are:
Moulin Rouge. I love the music, the crazy cinematography, the tragic love story.
Twilight series- I feel like each one gets better :)
Harry Potter series- My fave is 7 pt.1
Shakespeare in Love
Pride & Prejudice
Up In The Air
The Kings Speech
I can't believe that the Twilight movie series has ended! I still remember all the anticipation before the first one came out!
And now we find ourselves at the end.
Thank goodness for DVDs... we'll always have parking lot Edward :)
I enjoy watching:
True Blood (but I watch it on DVD so I'm only thru season 3 right now)
Vicar of Dibley
Flight of the Conchords ( I wish there were new episodes)
I love to listen to music especially when I am crafting :) Some favorites are:
Better Than Ezra
The Living End
The Pink Spiders
Two of my fave artists are Shag & Joe Ledbetter. Shag has the coolest retro style.
Joe Ledbetter is another awesome artist. He paints super cute characters that are usually involved in some kind of violence.
I also really enjoy the work of Dave Perillo & Scott C.
Over the years I have been flaked on here and there. If you see a swap that you would like to angel for me, it would be greatly appreciated :) I have no expectations here, but I figure I may as well ask just in case someone is interested. For swap details, just click on the name.
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE ANGELS WHO MADE THESE MISSING SWAPS FOR ME! YOU ARE SO SWEET!!!
