Favorite Crafts

I will try anything once. I love repurposing old jewelry into new. I've been on a big ring kick lately. I wear a size 10 ring so its easier for me to make my own adjustable ones than try to find store bought.

I also can be found:

  • making stuffies that make me smile
  • knitting
  • painting
  • sewing
  • collages
  • I want to learn to quilt...

Wish List / Things I Love

  • My very favoritest of favorites: OWLS - I am obsessed & love any & all things owl related!
  • Absolutely anything even remotely related to Dr Who or England in general.
  • Anything having to do with Chuck Taylors (Chucks) aka the most wonderful shoes ever invented!!!!
  • Cats - but not cutesy "hang in there" cats, more like sexy or funny cats.
  • hedgepigs/hogs
  • squirrels
  • swallows
  • make-up (fun colors, weird, different, etc)
  • weird nail polish/varnish
  • tattoo style
  • steam punk
  • art-deco
  • Victorian or Edwardian-esque
  • deco tapes
  • cute/colorful office supplies
  • LUSH products. especially bath bombs & bubble bath
  • anything to do with theater/musical theater/broadway
  • Kawaii :) (I'm mostly drawn to all the kitties, seals, & woodland esque characters but I really like them all!)
  • bentos
  • cute key caps
  • blind boxes
  • mini figures (for my type-drawer(s)!!)
  • fine & extra-fine tip Sharpies in any color

80's Related

  • bright & funky nail polish/bangles/earrings...
  • popples...
  • leg warmers...
  • cheesy horror movie dvds...
  • trying to find gellies!!

Dislikes/Don't Want/Don't Need

I really don't need any crafting papers unless they are just something so amazing you think I couldn't live without them (lol) or they have something to do with something in my likes (ex: union jack, London skyline, owls)

  • Orange (it's okay in moderation, just don't go crazy lol)
  • white chocolate...it's NOT chocolate!
  • black licorice
  • Chickens
  • Country or farm kitch
  • Rainbow things - don't get me wrong I love an actual rainbow, and the type of rainbow swap where we look for different items corresponding to each color sounds fun, but something about rainbows on objects is just a bit too kitch for me....

Favorite Colors & Patterns

Colors

  • pink (anything from pastel to neon - just NO pepto!)
  • green
  • teal
  • chocolate brown
  • gray
  • royal purple
  • jewel tones

Patterns

  • paisley,
  • houndstooth
  • polkadot
  • vintage florals
  • cute woodland themes
  • damask

Favorite Movies

  • anything John Hughes or Tarentino
  • Heathers
  • Empire Records
  • all the HP movies
  • The Prestige
  • Valley Girl
  • Serenity
  • Kinky Boots
  • Love Actually
  • quirky British, Australian, or New Zealander movies
  • Pump Up the Volume
  • Night of the Living Dorks
  • cheesy horror & sci-fi

Random...

  • I hate Kristin Stewart. She can't act & she's not attractive. She has single handedly killed Twilight for me....
  • I consider myself a Ravenclaw...
  • thanks to "the Bot" I have rediscovered my love of Hello Kitty :) and a new found love for other Kawaii cuteness!
  • I have no one set style, today I look like a nouveau-hippie but yesterday I was prepped out & tomorrow I'll probably be more rocker punk...you never know, but I love all the different sides of my personality...
  • I will not ever flake. I will always keep my partners posted if something goes awry...
  • I also won't hesitate to call out flakers or bad swappers....
  • You'll either love me or hate me. There is no inbetween. But I can promise you that if you become my friend I'll always go to the mat for you, always have your back. That's just the kind of girl I am...
  • Oh & also I have a tendency to talk too much & ramble.
  • You'll notice if you get a PM from me that's longer than a sentence long, I have an affinity for parenthetical asides lol

Received but don't know who fr

If any of these are from you, please let me know so I can thank you properly!

Comment: Oh happy package! Dr Who... ha ha Fun! I have a cd by a little group that only sings songs about Dr Who... which is funny 'cause I have never even seen the show! :) I recently read my first Terry Pratchett novel and LOVED it, and only have the one, so I am so excited about having another!! (is it okay to read them out of order, or should I get the others in the series? My Geekiness usually requires me to read them in order but I DO want to start this one so maybe this once...) Cross stitch, LOVE it. I haven't done it in YEARS and that's perfect for getting me back into it. and finally, the piece de resistance... Alexander!!! My daughter is an anthropology/ archaeology major and will get such a huge kick out of getting this in a care package in the fall!!! (plus he's hot) Thanks for sharing your Geekiness with me! :)
Response: YAY! I'm so glad you like it all! <333
