I live on the East coast of Canada with my hubby, and 2 cats, in our cute little house. 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 (World of Warcraft, AOE3, Quake 3 Arena, anything Mario and Zelda, etc.) I love board games too, and love to play them both irl and digitally on my ipad! Monopoly, scrabble, etc.
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. I also can be slow to rate sometimes, I have a hectic life. But don't worry, I will rate, and will do my best to do it asap!

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, spinning, furniture refinishing, jewelry making, and SO many more! ^_^ You name it, I do it, or want to try it someday!
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 whimsical animals. I don't want anything religious please. I don't like perfumey smells, strong floral smells, or the smell of lavender or cinnamon.
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.
*I will trade for these things!
*Right now my top wants are: quilting cotton in tone on tone or patterned, in bright intense colors of the rainbow! (I'm really low on particularly purples in my stash). I'm also going to be making a quilt in yellow and greys, so prints in those colors are welcome. I've also been looking at sealing wax, and would like some and the metal stamps that go with! I'm also working on a few rug hooking things, and can always use felted wool, in bright intense colors. :)
Cool things you've made. I've gotten some really awesome things lately via swaps. Altered tins, sewn things, 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!
