I love antique Bakelite jewellery; I've re-purposed interesting buttons and basic ones as jewellery. A friend of mine has made me hair clips out of it as well.
I live in Canada and hope I can pair up with someone/a few people whom likes to do a few Swaps. A pen pal would be cool too. I like to make and build things...I used to make a lot of birdhouses as a kid and my dad and I built two porches together.
I'm non-religious (Xmas is snowman and santa for me).
I honestly have always liked Valentine's Day even though I'm oddly single each time it comes around. Love chocolate, cute knick knacks and cute retro cards. Halloween is my fave holiday though. Love scary stuff :D like Japanese horror.
Scrapbooking. Adult Colouring Books. Shadowboxes. Basic needlepoint. Kits are appreciated.
I have lupus and crafts give me something to do on my bad days.
Dislikes/Fears: Aliens, Spiders (Halloween cartoon ones are ok); bugs (also butterflies in glass); cobras; or sharks.

At one point I was almost writing for a punk mag in high school but they wouldn't let me b/c I was 16. It's been said that I'm the girl version of Rob from High Fidelity (book or movie). My music collection is kind of massive.

Letters to Juliet...
How do you meet normal guys that are looking for a more serious relationship (aka places to go minus bars)? I'm a twenty-something working on getting back into the dating scene while being out of it for two years. I'm also going back to college for marketing. :D I also really don't enjoy my friends setups as they tend to be the ones they threw back (fish in the sea bit).
