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.

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.
I am pretty happy with getting anything in the mail, but here are some things to help if you really want to make my year. A lot of things I like are sprinkled throughout my profile but here are some more.
-embroidery floss (especially vintage)
-buttons(again vintage or handmade is a plus)
-ugly dolls(the cute brand, not really ugly dolls)
-rainbows and rainbow colors
-steam punk style anything
-retro and vintage clothing
-silver tone jewelry
-vampires(Dracula and True Blood, not a big Twilight fan)
-interesting fabric I can embroider
-necklaces and earrings are my preferred jewelry
-anything with cameras printed on it
-I really like things with literary quotes on them, especially Jane Austen or Sylvia Plath.
-I like all colors, but I prefer vibrant and bright to pastels
-Bust and Readymade Magazine
I highly encourage you to take a look through my Amazon wishlist and flickr page to get a really good sense of my style if you like. I think I have awesome taste.
Dislikes(Or really things I don't need):
-things with "Queen" or"loves shoes" or ANYTHING like that on it.
-Movies or Dvds, because I probably already own them
-supplies for scrapbooking or jewelry making, I don't really do either.
-pastel green(I love bright green)
-journals or diaries
-Anything that could melt. I live in a very hot place.
-small paper scraps
