Collecting promotional products - I work for a promo product company, and I love it. I think it would be really cool to receive promo products from other countries, just to see trends and popular items.
Yoga - I love to practice Barken method yoga. It is in a heated room and can be really intense.
5K Walk Races - I love doing these, my age group isn't very well represented, so I usually place.
Cycling - I got a bicycle when I moved to Texas and I love going for leisurely rides.
I'm mostly into mainstream alternative, but I have an affinity for acoustic adult contemporary. I listen to a little bit of everything else also, big fan of Stravinsky (Fire Bird is the most amazing thing ever).
I love classic French literature, but can't get over the books I loved when I was little. Constant reads are Little House on the Prairie series, Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn and Harry Potter.
Recently I've gotten into business and self development books. I'm really picky about the ones I read, I tend toward the ones that are more psychology and sociology based. My favorite is Drive by Daniel Pink.
I've been reading a wide variety of new stuff with my job and currently The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Learners and The Hunger Games Series have made it onto my list of favorite books.
Right now I am interested in all sorts of suggestions for my Nook. Has anyone done a Nook Book swap?
I also love to journal, so truth be told, some of my favorite books are my journals. I think there is nothing as satisfying as the feel and sound of pen on paper.
I mostly listen to TV shows as I am working on crafty projects. Current favorites are Law and Order, Glee, Mad Men, Walking Dead, Dexter, and Deadliest Catch.
I am pretty good at crochet, especially amigurumi. I enjoy loom knitting. I am interested in more paper crafts and beadwork.
I like to try new things, so I might sign up for a few swaps that are out of my current project norms.
I tend to work in Pink, Purples (probably my overall favorite), and Browns. Those are my fav colors to work with, but when a project calls for something else, I will be happy to step outside my box.
I love trying new foods and feel my list of dislikes is pretty limited. I love asian food and cooked fruits.
I will not eat any seafood, curry, asparagus, okra or anything with cilantro.
I have a raging sweet tooth; I am partial to chocolates, gummies and taffy.
I love to try new things, so I am open to almost anything.
Amigurumi - crochet or knitted. I don't knit, so the knitted ones are really special to me. The more unusual the critter the better.
Promotional Products - the random items you get from a company that is promoting itself. Sometimes it is a pen, a mug, a bag. I love seeing how different products and services are marketed. Extra bonus would be from companies outside of the USA.
Useful Items - I'm not really into decorative products, so I really like items that have a use. Especially organizational products.
Patterns - I love to crochet, but I always love a new pattern. Not good enough for clothing yet, but Amigurumi ideas are always welcome.
Vintage jewelry - I am a costume jewelry nut! I especially love finding old clip on or screw earrings since I don't have pierced ears.
Keys - I am really having fun making things from and incorporating keys into lots of my projects. I want new keys, old keys, colorful or simple keys. You are going to get a heart on anything I rate if I get a single key with the package.
