About Me

Hi !

My name is Tamie. Although I've been a member for quite a while, I've just recently started to participate in swaps.

I'm a SAHM (stay-at-home-mum) to one son (6) and one daughter (2) living in Ottawa with my hubby and our silver Mini Schnauzer. Married for 8 terrific years as of August 13, 2013 . We have no allergies.

Fav Animals:

All and any of them, especially fluffy baby animals.

Fav Teas

All of them, especially caffeine-free, and including bitter melon tea (the one most westerners hate.)

Nail Polish

All of them except nail caviar. I'd particularly enjoy an earthy colour. Or something unusual. Or "greige". Or bright lemon or fluorescent yellow (cheers me up when I'm glum). Or anything, really.

Favorite Crafts

  1. Love to SEW esp. apparel, including aprons, embroidery, etc.
  2. Vegan cooking (I'm not a good vegan, more of a wanna-be, and I won't judge you if you're a regular omnivore.) Is there such a thing as a recipe card swap? If so, don't send your fav roast beef recipe. (I'd love new ways to make beans, lentils, rice & quinoa.) I'm aware of all the recipe sites online, but recipe cards are fun collectables that I'm fond of.
  3. I like to knit and crochet items.
  4. I'm experimenting with ATCs.They seem small enough, and specific enough to be less intimidating than a larger project.
  5. Bookmarks (I'm usually reading a few different books at once.)

Favorite...

Books

Generally, I read How To, Parenting and Self Help Books, particularly anything about sewing and drafting patterns.

  • Big Bang Theory
  • Myth Busters
  • The Muppet Show (best thing ever on TV)

Movies

Colours

  • Red, all shades but esp. metallic
  • Dark Green, esp. "mud turtle"

  • Light Grey
  • Black

(There are no particular colours I don't like.)

Profile goodies

Suggested items:

  • Sewing & embroidery stuff especially floss, buttons, patterns (a pattern swap would be really cool, wouldn't it?) and fabric.

  • Tea

  • Magnets (Fridge & otherwise)

  • ??? I'm new, so I don't know most of what folks usually trade. Right now I'm mainly interested in getting a decent rating. Message me if you want a private trade, please.

What I don't want

Please no nudity, vulgarity - keep it G rated. No violent images, and no religious content. TIA

Comment: Wonderful board. I like the way you had trees of life, and buddha trees, rather than just plain tree pictures. Very inspiring.

Decorate My Profile With Hearts Swap

Partners never assigned, so I'm sending hearts to everyone registered for the swap. Cheers, StarMouse

I did have fun, thank you, and learned a lot. Mainly, that I need a lot of practice, and that I need to set my own deadline a number of days before the actual deadline. Apparently, it takes 5 business days for a letter from Canada to get to the U.S. Also, I had no idea there were so many watercolor tutorials on Youtube.com.

I have lots of paper, glue, fixative spray for watercolor, etc. for future ATCs, and some ideas for mounting them a little more nicely. I'm hoping I'll improve. :0)
