I love crafts...especially cross-stitch, pincushions, and crochet. My latest cross-stitch craze is Asian themed cross-stitch patterns. I'm a member of a local cross stitch group and a couple of crochet groups, and I love swaps. Other crafts I like are ATCs and paper crafts. I also like to do recycle, alter, and embellishment crafts. I really enjoy receiving something handmade...It's great to see someone's creativity.
WHAT ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITE THINGS?
MY FAVORITE THINGS TO COLLECT... Asian/Japanese items, strawberry themed items, and beach/coastal items.
MY FAVORITE COLORS are...caribbean ocean blues/turquoise, orange, and shabby pinks.
MY FAVORITE CANDIES...Gummie candies, Werther's carmel hard candy, strawberry licorice, and Hi Chews. My favorite candy flavors are tropical flavors - banana, coconut, pineapple, strawberry, peach, sour apple, key lime, orange, lemon...chocolate and carmel too!
MY FAVORITE SNACKS...Pocky by Glico, Hello Panda Cookies by Meiji, and Fortune Cookies.
PERSONAL PRODUCTS...Not a big make-up fan, but I love frosted lip gloss and frosted nail polish. I don't like bath products...too risky for irritation.
