About Me

I love spending time with friends and family, road trips, making breakfast for dinner, sewing and embroidering, and eating copious amounts of Indian food. My husband, Tom, & I enjoy nights of playing board games together. My favorite board game is Apples to Apples. We have fun lounging with our five cats (Hyacinth, Wally, Hazel, Chaz, and Evinrude) and one dog - a Lab/Corgi mix named Basher. We have two daughters - Maiya (4/09) and Jenevieve (2/11).

I am a full-time student in my BS of Maternal Child Health. I am sitting for my IBCLC (Lactation Consultant) certification in 2013, and in the meantime I pay the bills by teaching Lamaze childbirth education and working as a birth doula. My career passion is making sure women know their options in birth and breastfeeding!

My big vice is drinking Dr Pepper. I am a huge believer in doing the right thing just because it is the right thing. It is my goal to live simply and without clutter. I love my tiny rasied-bed garden. I want chickens in my backyard. I

Favorite Crafts

  • sewing
  • embroidery
  • 'zines
  • upcycled/repurposed clothing
  • housewares, especially for the kitchen

Swap Ideas

  • cooking (cookie cutters, cute spatulas, sandwich cutters, etc)
  • vintage cookware, jewelry.
  • earthy or jewel colors for things for the home; things that look to be Indian or Moroccan. I have no use for neon stuff.
  • scraps of unique fabric of any variety. I am sewing my opus, a bedquilt.
  • odd t-shirts. I cut them up and repurpose them
    • toys for Maiya (felt food, anything with fun texture)
  • anything French or German
  • Mexican themed anything l (I'm from California and I miss my home!))
  • you know what? How about anything indigenous to your country (except for the US). Love unique things, and it doesn't have to be touristy.
  • craft supplies (floss, Sharpies, fabric scraps, patches, buttons)
  • spicy food/sauces, etc

I'll skip these items

  • anything with peanuts
  • I'd prefer homemade over cheap plastic dollar store items

Comment: Love your answers :) I agree with the civil union - but I still have the little girl in me that wants the big dress ceremony. Not necessarily the priest/church bit though.
