Please Note - I have recently gave birth to twin boys (on March 5). I won't be swapping for a little while as any free time is spent trying to get some sleep. Wish me luck!
Hmmm, married to a lovely fellow and a mom of super cute twin boys and a lovely black cat.
I enjoy sewing, knitting, crocheting,embroidery, beading, jewelry making, paper crafts and pretty much anything creative. I belong to Ravelry and really enjoy swapping with people. It's so great to connect with like-minded individuals I normally wouldn't have met. I'd bake more if I had more time.
I collect vintage/Victorian cards/images, skulls, macabre weird stuff, vintage embroidery designs, odd miniatures, vintage buttons...I don't know, all the stuff the cool kids are collecting.
Favorite colors: All colours, specifically purple, yellow, orange and green - I like muted tones and not into pastels, red or beige or super brights.
For my swap partners - Little things I like:
Mon petit minou noir
Vintage floral fabric pieces (any fun cotton or wool fabrics really.
Brooches (odd, quirky, vintage, Victorian - 70’s styles)
Interesting or pretty beads
Embroidered pillowcases, hankies etc.
Loose tea: black, honeybush, rooibos
Natural fibre yarn
RickRack (oh god, I love RickRack)
Music: I think back to the height of Grunge in the 90's...good times. Also, Morrissey makes me swoon. Rufus Wainwright is AMAZING, Bebop Jazz makes me feel cool and chic, old and new school emo/alternative stuff, and I love dancey music that lets me get up and shake what my mama gave me.
I gravitate towards non-fiction crafting books like: knitting, crochet, sewing, embroidery (all my hobbies really). I enjoy flipping through recipe books and sure I'll be very interested in children's books when I have my twins.
I do enjoy reading fiction books - mostly something fairly light that I can read while I'm in the tub. I'm currently reading the True Blood series.
Too many! Amelie to Zoolander. No horror or scary movies and I don't watch movies to cry. I hate sad movies. I want to laugh and escape when I watch movies. I like romantic comedies, art films, documentaries, dramas, foreign, dark films...
Easy: True Blood, Dexter, Gossip Girl, Veronica Mars, Good Eats...this is a little embarrassing, but court TV shows are a guilty pleasure.
