I live close to Knoxville, TN - I LOVE LOVE LOVE arts and crafts! My husband and I own our own photography business, and we focus primarily on pet and family portraits. I have two Yorkshire Terriers, Glory and Callie who I love half to death! I enjoy gardening and exploring the sustainable living side of life. I love all things natural and handmade.
I really enjoy cool pop music, turntablism, alternative, and music you don't hear on the radio. Some of my favorites are The Avalanches, Lily Allen, Moby, and The Wiseguys. My favorite website Pandora.com helped me to discover lots of new music I didn't know was out there!
I enjoy comedies -- Pineapple Express, Borat, Zach and Miri make a Porno -- and I also enjoy action movies! The Transporter, 007, Dark Knight and similar!
My favorite TV Shows are Heroes, Fringe, Ellen Degeneres, anything on HGTV, LOST!, and Law and Order!
Crocheting, sewing, clothing (re)construction, furniture refinishing -- is collecting fabric a craft?! I really enjoy learning to make bags for myself and friends, and I make fleece blankies for small doggies!
FIrst of all - I love anything and everything handmade! I do love seeing usual things from stores in other countries, but I always appreciate the effort in a handmade ware. I really love doing arts and crafts myself and sending them as much as I love receiving them.
Food -- I have no allergies that I know of. My favorite flavors are Vanilla and Caramel, but I like everything! Healthy Recipes
Accessories - Flip Flops (sz. 8.5-9 US), purses or bags (Currently wanting a messenger bag!), hair clips (I have platinum blonde/white hair!), pouches, scarves/hankerchiefs, jewelry, nail polish, interesting pens, cute office supplies, anything to help organize, interesting note pads and note books, neat keychains, wallets, all natural bath and body (No old lady scents or musk please! I like sweet smelling and fruity stuff)
Sewing/Crafts -- FABRIC (no drabby, old lady stuff! I like retro, kawaii and NEAT prints to help me express my personality. Bright colors! Remnants OK), buttons, ric rac, appliques, zippers, small sewing tools, etc.
DOGGIE STUFF! I have two Yorkie Girls (Glory is 6 lbs. + Callie is 4 lbs.) They like handmade treats, please nothing from China. They also enjoy handmade doggie dresses and toys! They really like squeaky toys, but they don't discriminate - they will bring the doggie doom on any toy that dares cross their path. They also like simple, comfy beds to fit in their crate.
HUSBAND STUFF! My husband is a neat, arty guy. He is a computer geek and graphic artist. Here are some of his likes: Candy and Chocolate, he really likes kitcshy, weird, interesting things. He, like me, appreciates anything handmade. He really likes stickers! Some of his favorite games are Call Of Duty 4/5 for the Xbox360, Counterstrike, Quake, Starcraft, Warcraft 1-3, GTA. He also likes tasty treats! Since he is an artist, he likes anything he can use to draw and express creativity - markers, pens, pencils, drawing paper. He likes a lot of things! He is an easy-pleaser.
