About Me

Oct 17/17 I've had a couple of packages I've sent to the US go missing enroute lately. I'm not sure if it's an issue with CP or USPS, but either way, if you don't get a parcel from me (from Canada to the US parcels usually take a couple of weeks), please message me and I will resend.

I live in Moncton, New Brunswick, on the East coast of Canada with my hubby, and 2 cats, in our cute little war-time bungalow. I love artsy and craftsy things! All supplies, especially vintage/vintage look, grungy Tim Holtz style, BRIGHT RAINBOW COLORS! bits and bobs I can use in assemblage and mixed media, etc. I love Japanese things (fabrics, kanzashi, hello kitty, maneki neko, chopsticks, Blythe and Pullip dolls). I am OBSESSED with anything NYC. I like video games and board games (family and nerdy both).

Just a note, I always send, and always rate. I am in Canada, so shipping can take awhile, especially overseas. If you have concerns, please message me.

Favorite Music

Jack White, White Stripes, the Racountours, The Dead Weather, Arcade Fire, Hedley, OK GO, Cage the Elephant, Our Lady Peace, a lot of top 40 stuff, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, ACDC, Queen, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Piano Guys, Lindsey Sterling, Good Charlotte, Rasputina, Katy Perry, Christina Agulera, I also love classical, broadway, and mostly everything (except most 80's, and polka).

Favorite Movies

The Notebook, Tremors, Edward Scissorhands, Plesantville, Kung Fu Hustle, Whip It, X Men, Pay it Forward, James Bond (any, Daniel Craig and Sean Connery are my fave Bonds), Wizard of Oz, Repo!, Sucker Punch, Harry Potter series, any Jason Statham or Jet Li movie (love action movies). (And, Chris Evans is my internet boyfriend. The hot Captian America actor, not the British DJ, lol)

Favorite Television

Dr Who (more the new Doctors than the old ones), Sherlock, Jane the Virgin, Family Guy, Bob's Burgers, OitNB, Reno911, Galavant, Supernatural, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Amazing Race, Archer, Robot Chicken, Lucifer, Sailor Moon

Favorite Crafts

Oh my, there are SO many! Rug Hooking, felting, sewing, quilting, Ukrainian Easter eggs, collage/mixed media, papercrafts, mail art (atcs, inchies, chunky books, paper dolls, recipe cards, etc), drawing, art journalling, polymer clay, painting, crochet, knitting, spinning, furniture refinishing, jewelry making, and SO many more! ^_^ You name it, I do it, or want to try it someday!

Dislikes

I hate Twilight. I'm not anti-vampire - I like Anne Rice, I just loathe Twilight. I don't like anything cutesy country style, like teddy bears or precious moments (although I love kawaii - Japanese cuteness!). I don't want anything religious please. I don't like spiders.

Foods & Smells

Getting candies and chocolates is fun! I'm not huge on super dark chocolate - you know, so dark it tastes like unsweetened baking chocolate? Bleh. I do like chocolate with things in it, especially nuts.

I drink both coffee and tea, loose or not. I like to try new flavors of both. I prefer lighter roasts of coffee to dark. I love StarBucks and DavidsTEA. Not really big on green teas. I have a Keurig, so KCups are always welcome!

I'm allergic to apricots. I don't like black licorice. I'm not big on hot cinnamon or peppermint either.

Smells I like: lilac, melon, cucumber, any nutty/baking smells, citrus, tropical fruity florals, coconut.

I don't like strong perfumey smells (my husband is sensitive to them actually, so I'd prefer to not get them in the mail please), strong floral smells, or the smell of lavender or cinnamon.

Favourite Books & Authors

Terry Pratchett (LOVE LOVE LOVE Discworld), Neil Gaiman, Stephen King (The Dark Tower is amazing), Kevin Hearne (Iron Druid Series), Jim Butcher (The Dresden Files, Ray Bradbuey, Alice in Wonderland, Chronicles of Narnia. I love sci-fi, and have been reading some of the classics, and getting some modern urban fantasy in too.

Would Love to Receive

I'm also going to be making a quilt in yellow and greys, so prints in those colors are welcome. :) I'd love a pretty letter opener, hand decorated, artsy, vintage, whatev. I'd also love to get some frozen charlotte pieces!!

Cool things you've made. I've gotten some really awesome things lately via swaps. Altered tins, sewn things, art dolls, etc. I'm pretty easy, as long as you put your heart and soul into it! I love to particularly decorate my craft room with the things people make and send me!
