About Me

Ahhh! Update guys....I am going through a break-up, and am currently not living in my own home. So, I basically just have my laptop and my clothes. If I am late on swaps, please be patient. It will get there, I just y'know, need my stuff. So I will try to make it up to you all with extras. I hope to be in my new place by Oct 1st. Thanks in advance for being kind. Apologies in advance.

I am a 24-year-old trying to get her degree in Creative Writing and working as a social worker. I have technicolor hair and a few piercings. I love cooking, especially baking. I am a pie and cupcake master.

I am a huge fan of making things that everyone else usually buys, like rag rugs and butter. However I have a costly Target addiction. I think everything should serve a purpose and be beautiful, hence my kitchen full of Hello Kitty appliances.

I have a passion for photography, books, writing, art, crafting, Jane Austen and bright colors. I love 80's cartoons, rainbows, unicorns, owls, garden gnomes and kitsch.

I try to get all of my packages out on time, but the nature of my job occasionally causes a hiccup or two. Know that they always get sent, even if a day or two late.

Favorite Music

Oh man. Los Campesinos!, Sea Wolf, Lady Gaga, David Bowie, She Wants Revenge, Johnny Cash, The Unicorns, The Beatles, The Buzzcocks, The Clash, The Sex Pistols, Leonard Cohen, Rufus Wainwright, Bright Eyes, Owl City, Ludo, Muse, Etta James, Frank Sinatra, Amy Winehouse, Bob Dylan, The Ramones, Brother, The New Pornographers, The Dead Weather, Rasputina, Janis Joplin, Garfunkel and Oates, ABBA.

You get the idea.

Favorite Books

I love everything by Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, Angela Carter, Neil Gaiman, Christopher Moore,Dave Eggers, Truman Capote, Ian McEwan, Sarah Waters, Michael Cunningham, Zadie Smith, Joe Hill, Ayn Rand, Peter S. Beagle, Nick Hornby, Virginia Woolf, Haruki Murakami, Michael Ondaatje, Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

This will be a work in progress I think. In short, I like to read.

Favorite Movies

Pulp Fiction, Gormenghast, The Last Unicorn, Legend, Last Tango in Paris, The Story of O, Amadeus, High Fidelity, About a Boy, Labyrinth, The Ballad of Jack and Rose, Breakfast on Pluto, Velvet Goldmine, The Man Who Fell to Earth, Sin City, Sense and Sensibility, The Dark Crystal, Fight Club, The Hangover, Pride & Prejudice, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Illusionist, Little Miss Sunshine, The Prestige, Love Actually, Tipping the Velvet, Away We Go, Stranger than Fiction and much, much more.

Favorite Television

Veronica Mars, Rome, Big Love, The Sopranos, Deadwood, Carnivale, Jonathan Creek, The Office, Scrubs, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, Ben 10, Mad Men, True Blood, Dexter, Weeds, Glee, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Flight of the Conchords

Favorite Crafts

Embroidery, making clothes, quilting, knitting, weaving, cooking, needle-felting. I try to include one handmade item in each swap, unless time is too tight. My favorite is a hand-embroidered patch made especially for each recipient.

Comment: Lovely box, looks just like a Wedgwood box! I especially love the button PIN, that was such a neat surprise. I pinned it right to my favorite blue purse! Thank you for your thoughtfulness and your painting skill is much better than mine, truly. Keep it up!
Response: Your box was a labor of love for sure. I am happy to have my first painting attempt in the hands of someone who appreciates it. I'm glad you liked the pin, it was a little bit of a cheat since it had non-blue elements, but it was too pretty to not include.
