] I'm a fan
~I'm a lucky woman blessed with an amazing husband, a stable job and a good health in general. Lately I've had many occasion to see that not everyone has the same opportunities in life and I'm trying to give back a little bit. That's one of the reasons I decided to be a CHEMO ANGEL and I tried to give back by making mini RAKs from time to time.
~ I'm french speaking (from Montreal, QC Canada). Sometimes, I might sound rude even tough it's not my intention because my english vocabulary is limited. Please don't get offended by my messages if they don't sound wright. Thanks ~
I work full time for the Federal gov. in law enforcement and have no kids (by choice), but I'm married with a wonderful guy for now 7 years (see below for his interests). I have no pets because unfortunately, hubby is too allergic.
A few years back, I struggled hard to loose some weight and managed to get 70 lbs off. Unfortunately, I'm struggling even harder to keep it off (I recently gained back 10lbs). So PLEASE, no food, no candies, no edible unless I join a swap specifically related to that. Thanks
~ Add new stuff to my Etsy Store;
~ Learn new craft techniques:
Polymer Clay (I wanted last year but failed to);
Sewing a bit more complicated items (pyjama and quilt in shades of blue and white);
Knitting (grandma's slippers I managed to do last year, now I want to do tuque/mittens and socks);
Any tips, tutorial, accessory, supplies or advise pertaining to these would be appreciated.
I'm open to private swaps or trades. Don't hesitate to PM me if you wish to set up one with me for anything in my Etsy store or on my Flickr or even anything else I might offer in PF. Here is a small list of things I'd like to receive or that I'm looking for in return:
Please note that when I specify a brand, it's because that is really the one I want, it's probably because I can't find it here in Canada.
These should be seen only as indications as to what I like. It's not a wish list
I ♥ ...
Anything from the Keep Calm and... series. I'm actually trying my first real cross stitch project doing a "Keep Calm and Drink Tea" thing.
TO DO lists, I'm told by everyone that I'm a compulsive list maker
anything BLUE, especially navy, purple, cobalt and royal blue (also combined with sunshine yellow). I prefer dark colors in general, rainbow and jewel tones (not too crazy about pastel colors) and I also like anything paisley
blings, anything that glitters and sparkles
cats, dogs (espacially Chihuahuas and Chinese Crested), goats, any rodents (squirrels, rabbits, hamsters and guinea pigs) and penguins
Palm trees, beach, sand and sun (warm weather)
my iPods (I have 3 and my husband has one), my iPad, my** iPhone 5** and my Kindle paperwhite ereader
anything with Happy faces (notepads, stickers, t-shirts, fabric)
Nail Polish (especially LED gels)
Sunflowers, gerberas are my favourite flowers
Teas (I try to replace my coca cola addiction by tea to diggest a big meal so I usually prefer anything lemon/ginger, chai or regular green tea). I also like raspberry, cherry and pomegranate (See below for dislikes). NO VANILLA, licorice or orange flavors
Playing BINGO with hubby
Sour Candies or salty snack like pretzels.
Anything related to crochet (or knitting as I will teach myself). I just "self tought" myself and I really do enjoy it. I need anything related to yarn crafts (ami eyes, hooks, yarn, patterns of any kind and anything else I can't think of). I always have a lot of WIPs.
Magazines about crochet, polymer clay or crafts in general.
Fat quarters of fabric as I'm trying to build a little stash (rainbow colors or any shades of blue).
I don't like...
Tea Black Teas or ANYTHING VANILLA, peach, orange and licorice flavored or scented
Bugs, worms, clown faces
Bookmarks or paper books. While I love to read, I no longer read paper books since I get them all on either my iPad or Kindle that I carry with me everywhere.
Jewelery in general. I love working with beads and I think handmade jewelery is awesome. However my skin reacts really bad with them so hubby got me yellow gold jewelery and that's all I wear.
My husband loves anything related to:
Cars, but mostly Mustangs or Cadillacs
airplanes (he's an airplane engine mechanic)
PS3 shooter games
I actually have a few things in my Etsy favorites that are for him.
