About Me

Hello all!

If you are my partner in a swap please be warned that your swap may end up in my Flickr stream or blog. So if you want to be surprised please do not go to either site till you get your package from me.


Crafts, Movies and Books

Favorite Crafts

Sewing, Making Jewelry, Crocheting/Knitting, yarn dyer and spinning (as in spinning yarn).

Favorite Books

It is easier for me to list my favorite authors than favorite books since the list is endless.

My favorite authors are, in no particular order:

Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Isabel Allande, Ernest Hemingway, John Green and Chuck Palahnick

Over all, I love to read, I love books and I love my iPad.

Favorite Movies

I love comedies, Indie Films, 80's Flicks, B Movies and Horror movies. The more twisted and scary the better.


♥ Tim Burton Toys

♥ White Mocha Frapps from Starbucks

♥ Washi (If you come across Sheep Washi let me know! I have been searching high and low for some)

♥ The colors red, chocolate brown, lime, teal and turquoise

♥ Playing video games: WoW, Sims, XBOX, Playstation, Wii...

♥ Chocolate, especially Milk chocolate.

♥ Halloween

♥ Skulls

♥ Nightmare Before Christmas

♥ Zombies

♥ Rubber Stamps for Crafting ( I would love an Air Mail/Par Avion stamp, if anyone want to get rid off or can make it for me, let me know and we can do a private swap.)

♥ Music (especially mixed CD's)

♥ Crocheting and Knitting

♥ Owls (I love to collect Owl themed things)

♥ Noodler's Ink for Fountain Pens in Blue, Purple, or Turquoise

♥ Dark and Twisted

♥ Robots

♥ Aprons

♥ Handmade or purchased Tote Bags (Can never have to many since I use them as shopping/grocery bag).

♥ Stationary

♥ I love Tea - But I do not like fruit flavored teas

♥ Anything Alice in Wonderland Related

♥ Handmade things that you would like to share with me.

♥ Hockey

♥ Soccer

♥ Marie Antoinette

♥ If you wish to get me something from my wish list please ignore the expensive things. I also use my wishlist as a reminder list for myself of things I want to buy.

♥ Also, do not feel like I will only like things from my wish lists. This is just a guide/ideas for whoever swaps with me.


  • Heavily Scented things (i.e Scented candles, lotions, soaps, etc)
  • Birds (with the exception of Owls)
  • Bugs
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Romance Novels
  • Anything Religious

Comment: Wow! I am such an amateur at making these but you better be selling yours on etsy or somewhere because they are beautiful! I love them! Thank you so very much! I don't know which ones I like better! Thank you Thank you Thank you! jen
Response: You are very welcome. I am so glad you like them. I had a blast making them. I used to sell jewelry on Etsy but life got so busy I stopped. I have considered starting my shop again if only to get rid of some of the jewelry I have piled up that I have made. :-)

Response: You're welcome. My dad was in Spain on vacation 2 months ago and brought me a spanish version of One Hundred years of Solitude, I decided to start reading it and I must say the book is even better in spanish.

izohgore rated for EASTER PARADE on Mar 19, 2011
Comment: OMG!!! I LOVE the wristlet!!! My fave color & from my fave wristlet shop on Etsy! I have a few of her bags but, no solids & none in this color, this was likely the next one I was going to get for myself. How did you get inside my head? Thank you so much, you are such a doll! I'm using this for the Jerry Springer Opera that I plan to go to next wknd. =SQUEE= (((((huggles)))))
Response: Yay! I am so glad you liked it. I did not know if you had purchased from that store before, so I was a little nervous (it looked cute in the picture but you never know the quality till you have it in person). But since it was on your wish list I thought what the heck and took the chance anyway. I am so glad I did! I almost bought one for myself but I have put myself on an Etsy shopping band. I purchase way too much from that site. :-) By the way, Jerry Springer Opera? That sounds fun!
