About Me

I love: contemporary design, sleek lines, art, architecture, dark chocolate, hard work, reliable people, laughter, olive oil, sports, travel, the West Coast (U.S.), good books, simple foods, bargain hunting, ephemera, cinnamon.

I don't love: drama, mean people, genre fiction (sci-fi, romance, historical, etc), bitterness, goat cheese, dieting, humidity, super-gourmet foods, Wal-mart, anything vanilla scented or flavored.

I'm a little bit addicted to: Venti Iced Lattes at Starbucks, the $1 bins at Target and Michael's, those little tiny spools of ribbon, craft blogs.

I took an extended break from swapping this spring because I was moving and settling into a new job and home, but now I'm ready to start going again!

Favorite Music

Barenaked Ladies, Dashboard Confessional, Indigo Girls, Liz Phair (old and new), Kanye West, John Legend, Missy Elliot, Justin Timberlake, Fergie, Dixie Chicks, Patty Griffin, Jackopierce

Favorite Movies

Office Space, Punch-Drunk Love, Talladega Nights, Blades of Glory, Shawshank Redemption, Pee Wee's Big Adventure

Favorite Television

Grey's Anatomy, The Office, 30 Rock, The Riches, Dirt, Heroes, American Idol, Crossing Jordan (so sad it's being cancelled), and any kind of Law and Order show they can think of...

Favorite Crafts

My old standby (and longest love-affair) is with decoupage and other paper crafts. This is probably because I worked in Residence Life on college campuses for many years, and I sure do love to cut & color! :) More recently, I've taken up crochet and sewing and embroidery (and other fabric crafts). I've dabbled with jewelry, but it doesn't seem to hold my attention too well. When I was in high school, I was part of a gifted arts consortium, so I've been exposed to lots of different activities/techniques, and the ones I wish I could do more of are: photography, screen-printing, water-color, pottery/clay modeling, and lino/eraser cuts. I have serious thoughts (on a regular basis) about going to the local tech school and taking graphic design courses... Basically, I always need to have my hands in something artistic!

For the Shakespeare Swap!

Favorite Shakespeare Play: Hamlet Favorite Shakespeare sonnet: Sonnet 116 ("Let me not to the marriage of true minds...") Favorite Shakespeare character: Hamlet Favorite quote/line from a play or sonnet: Benedict in Much Ado About Nothing--"When I said I would die a bachelor, I did not think I should live till I were married." Favorite movie adaption (i.e. Shakespeare in Love, any of the Kenneth Branagh adaptations): Branagh's version of Hamlet (are we sensing a theme here?) Favorite actor in a Shakespeare play/movie: Kenneth Branagh Most hated Shakespeare's character: Iago Favorite color: Royal Blue Shirt size? XL What type of crafts can you do? Decoupage and other paper crafts; some sewing/crocheting/embroidery What type of crafts would you like to receive? Any! But especially an ATC.
